NEW YORK, NY – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned UN delegates on Tuesday to stand firm in putting pressure on Iran to open up its nuclear program to inspection. “Iran wants to be in position to rush forward and build nuclear bombs before the world can prevent it,” Netanyahu said, warning that recent gestures from Iran toward peace are a “ruse” to lull the West into backing off. “Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone,” Netanyahu’s speech comes after Iranian President Hasan Rouhani brought a new message of friendliness during a four-day trip to the United Nations in New York last week, a trip that ended with a 15-minute phone call with Obama. But Netanyahu said Rouhani was no different from any other president of Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution. “President Rouhani, like the presidents who came before him, is a loyal servant of the regime”, said Netanyahu. “I wish I could believe Rouhani, but I don’t,” Netanyahu told the General Assembly, where Iran’s seats were vacant. “Because facts are stubborn things.”
