Iran is a bigger threat to world than Islamic State: Netanyahu

  • Benjamin Netanyahu has said that a nuclear Iran posed a bigger threat to the world than the Islamic State, according to media reports.

    In a speech at the United Nations, the Israeli prime minister warned that defeating the Islamic State, but ignoring Iran was like winning the battle, but losing the war.

    Referring to Iranian statements against Islamic State militants, Netanyahu said Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani was shedding “phony tears.”

    Israel has often warned against the perils of making concessions to Tehran on the nuclear issue.
