On a state visit to Moscow, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday met with Russian Jewish community leaders in Moscow and promised them that he would not allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon.

He said that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei “called Jews ‘rabid dogs’ and said that they were not human. The public responded to him with calls of ‘Death to America! Death to Israel!’ Doesn’t this sound familiar to you? This is the real Iran!”

“We are not confused. They must not have nuclear weapons. And I promise you that they will not have nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told the Jewish leaders.

Netanyahu was referring to comments made by Khamenei on Tuesday in which he also said that Israel “will not endure” as a country.

“The Iranians deny our past and repeat their commitment to wipe the State of Israel off the map. This reminds us of the dark regimes of the past that plotted against us first and then against all of humanity,” Netanyahu said, noting that the peaceful country Iranian leaders portray it to be “is not the real Iran.”

“The real Iran,” he said, “is what the leader of Iran, Khameini, said yesterday.”
