Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday spoke of the threat Iran posed towards Israel in a speech at the Conference on the Future of the Jewish People organized by the Jewish People Policy Institute at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
"We have a state in the East that expending every effort to develop nuclear weapons in order to destroy us," said Netanyahu. He continued during his speech to say, "Today, the influence [of the Islamic Regime] is found in Gaza, Lebanon, Afghanistan, South America and Africa. This is what it has achieved without nuclear weapons, imagine for yourselves what it would do if it had nuclear weapons." "The international community must ensure that this type of weapon does not fall into Iranian hands," Netanyahu added.
