Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that supporters of democracy should be strengthened the world over, speaking at an event marking 25 years since Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky arrived in Israel.

"Supporters of democracy should be strengthened not only in the Arab world, but also particularly in Iran," Netanyahu said. Iran, he said, "is trying to exploit the earthquake destabilizing the entire area between Afghanistan to the Maghreb (North Africa) and it is trying to destroy the advancement of reform and democracy, to turn off the lights and bring about a dark age like in Tehran," Army Radio reported.
