Netanyahu: International sanctions against Iran not working

On a visit to Cyprus, Israeli Prime Minister says Iran is ‘most irresponsible’ country in the world.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that sanctions against Iran had not yet worked, adding that Tehran’s nuclear pursuits made it the most “irresponsible” country in the world.

“Iran is the most irresponsible country in the world and it is breaking all the rules,” Netanyahu said during a one-day visit to Cyprus.

“The United States – and any other country – should be concerned because we have information of ongoing efforts and attempts by Iran to conduct terrorism in many parts of the world. Fortunately until now there has been no loss of life,” he said after talks with Cypriot President Demetris Christofias.

His remarks came a day after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad inaugurated three new nuclear projects, in a show of defiance of international pressure for the country to abandon its program.

In Bangkok meanwhile, police said three Iranians linked to a series of blasts in the city had come to Thailand to target Israeli diplomats. Authorities are investigating possible connections with recent attacks on Israeli diplomats in Georgia and India.

Earlier Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran was exaggerating the progress it had made in its nuclear program, in order to make the world believe it was too late to stop it.

“Yesterday’s show was really just a show, both for the Iranians themselves, to strengthen their spirits, and for the entire world,” Barak told Israel Radio. “They are boasting achievements that aren’t there yet. They are talking about a third and fourth generation of centrifuges. I think they still have a lot to do with the second generation, let alone with the third,” he said.

The world could not afford to ignore the considerable progress Iran had made and must intensify sanctions against Tehran, the minister said, stressing however that Iran had not yet reached the point of no return. “They are presenting a situation that is better and more advanced than they really are in, in order to create a feeling with all players that in fact the point of no return is already behind them, which is not the case,” he said.

Israel has been a leading voice in an international campaign to halt Tehran’s nuclear program. Like the West, Israel accuses Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons. Tehran denies the charge.

    There was a video of this fool in 1998, saying that iran and iraq was a danger to the world but the world don’t know it yet. Now in 2011 his dream has come true and it looks like we are close to attacking iran. Evil only occurs when good men do nothing.

    “Iran is the most irresponsible country in the world and it is breaking all the rules,” No $hit!

    Israel broke the world records by being # 1 country in the world to be condemned and censored by the world body[U.N.] more than any other country on the face of the earth.

    The statement by this monster remind me of the hooker who brags about her honor.
    This liar and adulterer will say anything to grab the headline.

    Right; Israel has, like her nukes, over 400 UN Resolutions against it, while Saddam Hussein could only manage 11 and Iran four. The Israelis have taught the Republikans how to be pathological liars while challenging the heights of hypocrisy and being equivocal. Israel is the biggest threat to world peace on the planet. A coalition of the USA, Europe, Russia and China should launch pre-emptive strikes against Israel and put it down, like the mad dog it is. The world could then perhaps live in peace….as long as America could behave and forget about its imperialistic desires. Of course the republikans would most likely have to be locked up, and all lobbyists shot. Arrest the Rothschild mafia and divide their horde of gold amonst the nations, then intstiute non-predatory banking.

    Rev. Desmond Tutu called Israel an Apartheid State; Rev.Tutu knows Apartheid when he sees it, don’t you agree?

    “Barak said Iran was exaggerating the progress it had made ”
    “The world could not afford to ignore the considerable progress Iran had made and must intensify sanctions against Tehran, the minister said” :

    the parasites seem to want it both ways..

    Netenyahu should do a hollywood-star studded action-packed thriller,
    where he digs his own grave, slowly for an hour or two.
