In his remarks in a video clip posted on Facebook with Farsi subtitles, Netanyahu began by pouring and sipping a glass of water, detailing his plans to launch a Farsi website explaining how Iranian farmers can recycle their waste water.
“Today I’m going to make an unprecedented offer to Iran. It relates to water. Israel stands with the people of Iran and that is why I want to help save countless Iranian lives. Here’s how,” he said.
Citing Iran’s meteorological organization that says that nearly 96 per cent of Iran suffers from some levels of drought, and a former Iranian agriculture minister who said that 50 million Iranians could be forced out of their homes due to environmental damage, Netanyahu blamed Tehran’s theocratic regime.
“Millions of Iranian children are suffering due to mismanagement, incompetence and the theft of vital resources by the Iranian regime,” he said, explaining that the shortcomings caused by Tehran could be compensated by utilizing Israeli technology and solutions.
“Now, Israel also has water challenges. We’ve developed cutting edge technologies to address them. Israel recycles nearly 90% of its waste water. That’s far more than any other country on earth,” he proclaimed.
“Israel has the know-how to prevent environmental catastrophe in Iran. I want to share this information with the people of Iran. Sadly, Iran bans Israelis from visiting, so we’ll have to get creative,” he continued.
“We will launch a Farsi website, with detailed plans on how Iranians can recycle their waste water. We will show how Iranian farmers can save their crops and feed their families,” the prime minister promised.
“The Iranian regime shouts death to Israel. In response, Israel shouts: Life to the Iranian people,” he added as he wrapped up the 2-minute clip.
“The people of Iran are good and decent. They shouldn’t have to face such a cruel regime alone. We are with you. We will help so that millions of Iranians don’t have to suffer. The hatred of Iran’s regime will not stop the respect and friendship between our two peoples,” he concluded.
