Meeting with senior U.S. officials in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Netanyahu warned that “the tyrants of Tehran want to take us back to a dark age of theocratic medievalism. And if this murderous, terrorist regime ever developed nuclear weapons or the means to develop it, they would promptly scuttle the peace and they would endanger the whole world. We must not let that happen, and we will not let that happen”. He went on to assert that “in opposing Iran’s war machine, the U.S. is showing true global leadership... [GCC countries] have come out and openly supported the American position. And this reflects a change in the making”.
