Israel will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday, adding the international community must join the U.S. and reimpose crippling sanctions on Tehran. A move that European countries have resisted.
His remarks came in the wake of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report that said Iran was now violating all of the agreements of the JCPOA, the Iran nuclear deal, and had refused to grant inspectors access to undeclared military sites.
Netanyahu accused Iranian regime of using these sites to carry out secret nuclear activity.
“Iran has systematically violated its commitments by hiding sites and enriching fissionable material, and has committed other violations,” Netanyahu said at the start of the cabinet meeting.
“I believe that the time has come, and I think that the time has passed, but reality certainly requires it in the light of these revelations, for the international community to join the U.S. and reimpose paralyzing sanctions on Iran,” he added.
The prime minister added that “has not lessened by one iota our determination to act against Iran’s aggression.”
“I reiterate: Israel will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons and will continue to act methodically against Iran’s attempts to militarily entrench on our borders,” the prime minister declared.
The Iranian regime has a stated aim of annihilating the “Zionist entity”, aka Israel. They are believed to be seeking nuclear weapons in order to attack the world’s only Jewish state. Their advancements in that field shows there is a real need for the world to take their threats seriously and do more to restrict this rogue regime. Let’s continue to pray for Israel and the Jewish people that no weapon formed against them will prosper.
