The prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran and the growing delegitimization campaign remain the major challenges facing Israel on the international stage, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told The Jerusalem Post’s Annual Conference in New York in a special videotaped message on Sunday.

Although Netanyahu prefaced his remarks by thanking US President Barack Obama and the US Congress “for all they have done for Israel’s security,” the premier warned that “the Lausanne framework paves Iran's way to produce the enriched uranium for an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons.”

“That's the inevitable outcome if Iran keeps the deal,” the prime minister said. ”If they decide to break the deal, they can get to the bomb much sooner. The deal also gives Iran tens of billions of dollars immediately, and hundreds of billions of dollars in the coming years.”
