Bibi's Fight Against World Paid Off

As Stand for Israel reported in Monday's Daily Dispatch, the U.S. is imposing new sanctions on Iran this week. The Times of Israel's Raoul Wootliff reports on the reaction of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who hailed the "historic" sanctions, saying they will put the Iranian regime "in a choke hold":

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday praised US President Donald Trump’s “courageous, determined and important decision” to reinstate all US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, saying the move was a direct result of his own efforts against the deal.

“​For many years I ​have devoted my time and energy to the war against the Iranian threat. ​On this issue I went ​up ​almost against the whole world. Today we see the results of this long and ongoing struggle​,” Netanyahu said at the opening of his Likud faction meeting in the Knesset.

“This day is a historic day,” Netanyahu said. ​”​I would like to again thank President Donald Trump again for a courageous, determined and important decision. I think this contributes to stability, security and peace...”

Netanyahu, who personally lobbied world leaders against the deal and since its signing, has called for it to be canceled said, “This is ​a very big day for the State of Israel. This is a great day for the people of Israel. This is a great day for the future of Israel.”

He said that the sanctions, particularly targeting Iran’s banking sector would put “Iran’s terrorist regime in a large choke hold...”
