Bennett: We are taking initiative against Iran now
The Iranian regime’s vulnerabilities give Israel leverage to stop its malign actions, PM says.
SEPTEMBER 27, 2021

NEW YORK - Israel is not just talking, it is taking action against Iran in the present, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said in a briefing to journalists on his delegation to New York, following his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Monday. Iran’s pace of advancement towards a nuclear weapon is “unacceptable,” and Israel’s approach is “not just apocalyptic warnings, but initiative. We mean what we say,” Bennett said.

“We are acting in the present and will continue. I believe that consistent and determined action can make a difference,” he stated. In his speech at the UN, Bennett mentioned that Iran is enriching uranium to 60%, one step away from weapons-grade material, and warned: “Iran's nuclear weapon program is at a critical point,” he warned. “All red lines have been crossed. Inspections — ignored. All wishful thinking — proven false. Iran is violating the [International Atomic Energy Agency’s] safeguard agreements — and it's getting away with it.”
