In the opening of his address to the United Nations Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu reminded the audience that ever since the times of Cyrus’ rule, there has been a friendship between Israel and Persia which has lasted until the time of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
Netanyahu noted that every Iranian president, both conservative and moderate, has been subjugated by their spiritual leaders – Khomeini, and Khameini after him.
“The current president, Rouhani, was one of six candidates given approval to by the Ayatollas. And Rouhani has formulated a strategy that will allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons under the guise of diplomacy,” the Prime Minister pointed out.
“I know that Rouhani does not sound like Ahmadinejad, but Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf’s clothing, whereas Rouhani is a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” Netanyahu added.
