Prime Minister Netanyahu remarked that “we have yet to see a unified and resolute stance against the most antisemitic regime on the planet – a regime that openly seeks to develop nuclear weapons and annihilate the one and only Jewish state”. He went on to praise the Trump administration “for confronting the tyrants of Tehran that subjugate their own people and threaten the peace and security of the entire world. They threaten the peace and security of everyone in the Middle East and everyone beyond”. Netanyahu further urged “all governments to join the vital effort of confronting Iran” and stated: “Israel will do whatever it must do to defend our state, defend our people and defend the Jewish future”.
