Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that Israel won’t rely on the Biden administration’s efforts to return to a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.

“On Erev Purim, I say to those who seek to destroy us: Iran and its proxies in the Middle East: 2,500 years ago, another Persian tyrant tried to destroy the Jewish nation and just like he failed then, you’ll fail today,” the prime minister said.

“We won’t allow your extremist and aggressive regime to acquire nuclear weapons. We didn’t make the journey of generations of thousands of years back to the land of Israel in order to allow the delusional regime of the ayatollahs to end the story of the resurrection of the Jewish people.”

“We won’t place our hopes on any agreement with extremist regimes like yours…with or without an agreement, we’ll do everything it takes for you not to obtain nuclear weapons.”

On Monday, Netanyahu convened a meeting regarding current situation with Iran with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi, Mossad head Yossi Cohen, National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat, US Ambassador US Gilad Erdan, and others.

The three-hour meeting ended after a number of the tactical decisions were reached, Yisrael Hayom reported. Netanyahu is expected to convene another meeting in the near future.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration is receiving a chilly response from Iran regarding rejoining the 2015 nuclear deal, with Tehran refusing to resume full compliance with the deal’s obligations.

On Tuesday, Iran began officially restricting international inspections of its nuclear facilities in order to pressure the international community to lift economic sanctions.

  1. He’s right they won’t succeed but not for the reason stated. He believes in כחי ועוצם ידי while we believe ואף בארץ אויביהם לא מאסתים ולא געלתים לכלותם.

  2. The Zionist leader’s propaganda is both anti-Jewish and deeply flawed for a number of reasons.

    First, the Zionist leader represents only Zionists, not Jews.
    Second, 2,500 years ago, the Persian tyrant(s) wanted to destroy the Jewish nation/people, which is, of course, terrible and unacceptable.

    On the other hand, the Iranian leaders of today have stated that it is the Zionist nation, not Jewish people, that must be wiped off the map. Obviously, our sole concern with that Iranian statement is that not even a hair on even one Jew be hurt CH”V.

    But, Zionism and its State of Israel are, of course, an affront to and enemy of Jews world-wide, and Jews would much prefer that Zionism and its State be relegated to the dust-bin of history, as they will be, regardless, when Moshiach comes.

    Third, the Zionist anti-Torah and extremely bloody Esav-like journey to their invasion of the land of Israel is neither a continuation nor a conclusion of the journey of generations of Jews in galus. Rather, the Zionist journey is a massive and terrible detour from the journey of generations of Jews davening to Hashem to bring the geulah, not, liHavdil, Zionist disaster that also fraudulently poses as the geulah.
