Netanyahu presented Iranian President Hassan Rohani's memoir, "National Security and Nuclear Diplomacy," from which he cited excerpts which he claimed prove Iran's president has previously led a policy of deception against the West, so that Iran could advance its nuclear program unimpeded.

Netanyahu in the interview

 

Netanyahu said he will welcome diplomatic attempts to block Iran's nuclear program, but not fake effort, which he called, in Persian, HARF-E POOTCH (nonsense).

 

The BBC Persian channel is aired in Iran, despite the regime's attempt to remove it from the airwaves. According to the BBC, the channel is watched by some 12 million viewers a week.

 

In the interview, Netanyahu addressed the Iranian people directly and claimed that Iran's ayatollahs are responsible for the severe sanctions leveled against Iran and the dire economic situation in the country, due to its efforts to acquire nuclear weapons.

 

Netanyahu also stressed the "historical friendship" between the Jewish and the Persian nations which he said held close relations until the Islamic Revolution.

 

The prime minister insisted the Iranian people pay a heavy price for the military nuclear program which its regime claims it doesn't have and stressed that Israel wants a diplomatic solution, but it has to be a real and comprehensive one.

 

He added that he believed the Jewish and Iranian peoples can be friends if the Iranian regime was toppled.
