Demonstrators Disrupt PM at President's Conference


Demonstrators protesting the possible export of Israeli natural gas interrupted a speech by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Thursday evening, at the final session of the President's Conference. Netanyahu joked with President Shim'on Peres, "Shim'on, democracy at its best."

Netanyahu had opened his address by discussing the Iranian nuclear threat. He said, "The biggest threat is that the most dangerous weapon in the world will fall into the hands of the most dangerous regime in the world. Iran must not be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon."
