Peres: Iranian Threat – Not Only Nuclear


President Shimon Peres talked about Iran when speaking Sunday to visiting United States senators. “A nuclear Iran is a threat to the entire world,” he warned.

However, he said, Iran’s nuclear program is not the only issue of concern. “We talk so much about the Iranian bomb but we must not forget that Iran is the greatest danger to human rights in Iran and outside of it. They export weapons, terrorists and money to whoever is ready to kill. They hang people for being homosexual, they hang people without trial, they imprison them and they shoot at demonstrators.”
