Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday vowed that the Iran nuclear agreement struck between the major world powers and Iran “is not the last word.”

Speaking before the Knesset to honor the memory of the Revisionist Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the premier said that it was Israel’s vocal opposition to the Iran nuclear program that delayed Tehran’s attainment of the bomb.“We brought the Iranian issue to the attention of world public opinion,” Netanyahu said. “If it wasn’t for us, there would not have been a discussion about it.”

“If it weren’t for Israel’s efforts, Israel would’ve gained possession of a nuclear weapon a long time ago,” the prime minister said.
