Netanyahu to <i>Le Figaro</i>: We hope France will not waver on Iran

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told French newspaper Le Figaro that Israel supports France and hopes it does not waver on its decision to object to a "first step" nuclear deal with Iran.
Netanyahu gave the interview, that will be published on Saturday, ahead of French President Francois Hollande's visit to Israel next week.
"My belief is that we must not lower our guard against a regime that helps [Syrian President Bashar] Assad kill tens of thousands of men, women and innocent children in Syria, spreading terrorism worldwide, and arming Hezbollah, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad with thousands of rockets aimed at Israeli towns, and finally, [a regime that] calls for the destruction of Israel."
