Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke out, Thursday, against proposals that would allow Iran to maintain its ability to make nuclear weapons. Speaking at a conference in Jerusalem on joint strategic dialogue between the government of Israel and world Jewish communities, he said, "Israel understands that there are proposals on the table in Geneva today that ease the pressure on Iran for concessions that are not concessions at all. The proposal would allow Iran to retain the capabilities to make nuclear weapons. Israel totally opposes these proposals. I believe that adopting them is a mistake of historic proportions. They must be rejected outright."
