Rouhani: 'Zionist Pressure Groups' Operating in Congress

Before PM Netanyahu's speech today at the United Nations, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed the General Assembly - predictably spewing anti-Israel and anti-American sentiment. The Times of Israel reports on Rouhani's speech (which can be seen in full above) that claimed Congress is being pressured by Zionists:

Concerning the nuclear deal reached last summer with world powers, the Iranian president said it “confirmed the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program” and “reinstat[ed] Iran’s right to develop a peaceful nuclear program.”

Rouhani warned that “any failure on the part of the United States in implementing it would constitute an international wrongful act and would be objected to by the international community.

“Any failure in implementing the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) will further erode the credibility of the United States in the world,” he charged, accusing the US of failing to comply with the deal in the past few months, and citing “the US Supreme Court ruling to seize billions of dollars of the Iranian people’s assets...

“This experience demonstrated that the Zionist pressure groups could go as far as having US Congress pass indefensible legislations [sic] forcing the highest American judicial institution to violate peremptory norms of international law,” he said.
