Netanyahu Addresses UN: Iran's New President Is 'Wolf in Sheep's Clothing'
At remarks at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister spoke out about Iran's new leader, President Hassan Rouhani, calling him a danger to the region who cannot be trusted.
"Rouhani doesn't sound like Ahmadinejad, but when it comes to Iran's nuclear weapons program, the only difference between them is this: Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing. Rouhani is a wolf in sheep's clothing - a wolf who thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of the international community," he said.
He also addressed Iran's role in the Syrian conflict, saying, "Rouhani spoke of 'the human tragedy in Syria,' yet Iran directly participates in Assad's murder and massacre of tens of thousands of innocent men, women, and children, in Syria."
The prime minister also said that he believes all Iranian presidents serve the same 'unforgiving regime,' where its supreme leader dictates.
"I wish I could believe Rouhani, but I don't because facts are stubborn things. And the facts are, that Iran's savage record flatly contradicts Rouhani's soothing rhetoric."
