NEW YORK, NY - Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely spoke at a UN Security Council meeting on terrorism on Wednesday and called Iran the “godfather” of terrorism in the Middle East.

She said the Islamic Republic operates like a “crime syndicate” and “has made no secret of its intention to use the sanctions relief to expand its funding of its terror proxies in the region and world, in particular Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza -- two groups which make clear their goal of wiping Israel off the map.”            

                   
“To defeat Iranian-backed terror,” she told the Security Council, “ the moderate states in the Middle East must act together in confronting extremism and in addressing its real root causes: poverty, absence of democracy and rule of law, absence of women's rights and the lack of education towards tolerance.”
