Israel’s former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has trashed Democrat President Joe Biden for trying to bring back the Iran deal from the dead.
In an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin, Netanyahu gave President Donald Trump high marks for how he handled the middle east.
However, he accused Biden of making “absurd” moves by dealing with Iranian “terrorists.”
“First of all, they can take the entire world hostage,” Netanyahu told Levin.
“Once you have a predatory, and especially in a rogue theocratic regime like this, have nuclear weapons, they can use them in two ways: One, they can threaten you directly with atomic bombs.
“Secondly, they have a nuclear umbrella, which is to threaten you with conventional weapons like regular missiles or terrorists or anything else.
“That gives them awesome power.”
“I think it changes history.
“And that’s why I took the unusual step of coming to the Congress, speaking there — something that was not easy to do.
“I think it’s important to prevent Iran from having those means.
“And by the way, if you want to understand how bad this deal is, it not only gives Iran the freedom with an international legitimacy to enrich uranium and an unlimited quantity with much more sophisticated centrifuges in just a few years.
“It also gives them money, an enormous amount of money to boot.
“It’s so absurd — they’re lifting sanctions from these terrorists.
“Those people who are firing these missiles, those people who have murdered Americans left and right.
“Those people who are responsible for more terrorism around the world than anyone else – those people are going to be lifted off sanctions.
“That’s what the Iranians are demanding.
“So this is absurd.
“This is the kowtowing of the democratic world — unfortunately, of the rest of the world — to this rogue regime, giving it both the weapons of mass death, an enormous pile of cash to boot.
“It just doesn’t make sense.
“The Gulf countries saw that somebody was willing to stand up to Iran, so we formed this tacit alliance based on a common security concern.
“But also I think they saw the power of Israeli innovation, the power of the free market that we unleashed here.”
“What has happened with the Abraham Accords is amazing,” he said.
