Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu beamed his anti-Rohani message to the Iranian people through BBC’s Persian Channel Thursday, telling them that a nuclear Iran would enslave them.
Iranians “will never get rid of the tyranny” if the regime obtains nuclear weapons, he said.
“The issue is this regime’s control of Iran, its aggressive designs, its brutalization of its own people,” the Prime Minister continued. “We don’t forget. I saw Neda on the sidewalk,” he said, referring to a protester whose murder in the anti-regime protests in 2009 was show all over the world. “I saw her choking in her own blood. I saw the desire of the Iranian people to have real freedom, a real life. I know that. It’s there.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu tossed in a couple of Persian words, saying that Israelis are not “suckers” for a fake effort by the Iranian regime to stop its nuclear weapons program.
His media blitz has reached almost every major American outlet, with a common warning to Americans that the United States, and not just Israel, will be threatened by a nuclear Iran.
He also held a private meeting with leaders of AIPAC, the Jewish Federations and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organization.
Prime Minister Netanyahu will stay in the United States one day more than planned in order to continue on the airwaves and fighting for prime time in the midst of the U.S. debt ceiling crisis.
