Netanyahu Reiterates Opposition to Iran Nuclear Deal in Speech to American Jewish Leaders
JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, addressing the Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly in Jerusalem, reiterated his opposition to a U.S.-backed deal in which Iran would receive sanctions relief if it suspended high-grade uranium enrichment (20 percent) for six months.
According to the deal, Iran would still be able to enrich to 3.5 percent.
“It’s a dangerous deal because it keeps Iran as a nuclear threshold nation and it may very well bring about a situation where the sanctions are dissolved or collapsed… When it comes to the question of Jewish survival and the survival of the Jewish state, I will not be silenced, ever. Not on my watch. When the Jewish people were silent on matters relating to our survival, you know what happened,” Netanyahu said.
