Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman accused Iran of  trying to undermine stability in every country in the Middle East on Sunday.

Speaking at the Munich Security Council less than an hour after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif, Liberman said that Israel has not seen more moderate behavior from Iran since the signing of the Iran nuclear deal. To the contary, Liberman said, since the signing of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, Israel has seen: a competition organized in Tehran for the best Holocaust denial cartoon, with a prize of $50,000; parades in Tehran featuring ballistic missiles with Hebrew inscriptions, reading 'Israel must be wiped out'; a State Department report finding that Iran is the number one state sponsor of terror in the world; Iranian development of ballistic missiles in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231; the persecution of Iran's ethnic and religious minorities; and 600 executions in 2016, often with little or no due process of law.

The defense minister said that the Iran nuclear deal was "an attempt to avoid reality," and we were seeing similar results to what the nuclear deal with North Korea had yielded.

He called for world powers to enforce a policy of economic pressure, tough policy and following through on UN resolutions, such as in the case of Iran carrying out ballistic missile tests.
