At this week’s government cabinet meeting the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke about the recent measures taken by the Iranian regime to enrich uranium above the level allowed under the nuclear agreement.
“This type of enrichment is only for one thing – nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu made direct reference to an article published in the Washington Post that said that the Iranian measures of enrichment of uranium “is not terrible because they are a small step”. Netanyahu compared this thinking to World War II, where the world remained silent before the first attacks of the Nazis because ”they were only small things”.
”How World War II began in Europe. It began when Nazi Germany took one small step, reentering the Rhineland. It was a small step, no one said anything and no one did anything. The next step was the Anschluss, and the step after that was the entry into Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia. The rest is known,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu gave a direct message to the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom to fulfill the commitments established in the nuclear agreement, “You signed this deal, and you said the moment this step would be taken, there would be harsh sanctions. Where are you?”
