PM: Iran's Khamenei now the biggest threat to world peace

May 5, 2011 16:02

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is the biggest threat to world peace now that Osama bin Laden is dead, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a CNN interview Thursday.

Netanyhau said that Khamenei is more of a worry than Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"He runs the country and he is infused with fanaticism," he said.

"If the Iranian regime gets atomic bombs, it will change history," Netanyahu warned. "The future of the world - the future of the Middle East - is certainly at stake."
