During an interview on Fox News, the former Israeli leader said allowing Tehran to acquire nuclear weapons be “the kowtowing of the democratic world” if allowed to happen.
“First of all,” he warned, “they can take the entire world hostage.”
Netanyahu, who stepped down as prime minister last year, oversaw his country’s clandestine plan to deter Iran’s nuclear ambitions, which included the assassination of Iranian scientists to slow progress.
He also urged the U.S. and other democratic nations to work alongside Israel to keep Iran from producing nukes only to witness President Joe Biden return to the talks that were abandoned by Donald Trump.
“Those people who are firing these missiles, those people who have murdered Americans left and right,” Netanyahu said, “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.”
The former prime minister made his comments on the "Life, Liberty, and Levin" show.
