Speaking at a press conference in Tel Aviv with his German counterpart, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid stressed on Thursday that Europe must recognize that Tehran’s nuclear program is only one component of the danger Tehran presents to the world.

“The E3 countries cannot also ignore the threat posed by Iran beyond its nuclear program,” Lapid said, referring to the European countries involved in the Iranian nuclear deal negotiations. “Iran is Hezbollah in the north, Iran is Hamas in the south, Iran is an exporter of terror from Yemen to Buenos Aires.”

Lapid added that in his meeting with Annalena Baerbock before the press conference, he spoke about the attempt by human rights organizations to label Israel as an apartheid state.

“This campaign is part of a larger campaign,” he said, “whose goal is to undermine Israel’s right to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people.”
