Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that as the negotiations with Iran were continuing that Israel was “preparing for any scenario, determined to defend ourselves from danger.”

Netanyahu, speaking at the government's annual memorial ceremony for Theodor Herzl at Mt. Herzl, quoted exiled Iranian film director Mohsen Makhmalbaf as saying that Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is “worse than Hitler.”

“If he could,” Netanyahu quoted Makhmalbaf as saying, “he would destroy the world.” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the film director said, was “without power, only the spokesman of the supreme leader.”
