Bibi: Stop Appeasing Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began the Jewish New Year with a speech covering a wide range of topics, including marking the anniversary of the September 11 attacks and thanking the U.S. for its support in shuttering Palestinian Authority offices in Washington. And, The Times of Israel reports, Netanyahu also warned of European appeasement of Iran that will allow the Islamic Republic to carry out terror attacks that Israel has thus far thwarted:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opened his cabinet meeting Wednesday by stressing that the world must unite against not only against the threat of Islamic State, but also against that of Iran.

“It is doing so to a certain extent against Islamic State but it is not doing so against Iran,” he said. “On the contrary, what we are seeing is that while Iran is sending terrorist cells to Europe, European leaders are appeasing – and reconciling with – Iran, in the same week that the terrorist cells were due to carry out their operations, which we helped thwart. This is unacceptable...”

The Israeli leader reiterated that “the appeasement of Iran abets the relentless assault on the values and security of the free societies, and the time has come for Western governments to join the strong and clear effort by the Trump administration against the terror regime in Tehran...”

“Yesterday we marked 17 years since the awful terrorist attack against the American people at the Twin Towers in New York and at the Pentagon in [Greater] Washington,” he said. “This operation was carried out by Al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda has passed the torch to Islamic State, even as Iran also promotes international terrorism.”

The prime minister reiterated his belief that the US “made the correct decision” in closing the Palestine Liberation Organization mission in Washington, DC, on Monday...
