Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed European leaders at the United Nations Thursday; saying western nations were actively “appeasing” Iran’s nuclear weapons program despite international sanctions.
Netanyahu was addressing the UN General Assembly when he called-out European heads-of-state for supporting the Iranian nuclear agreement, saying “I use the word appeasement carefully […] but there is no other way to see it.”
“The same week Iran was caught red-handed for trying to murder European citizens, European leaders were laying out the red carpet for President Rouhani, pledging to give them more money,” Netanyahu added.
“Have these European leaders learnt nothing from history? Will they ever wake up?” he asked.

The fierce attack came just moments after Syrian-based Iranian forces fired roughly 20 rockets into northern Israel.
The United States slammed the Iranian missile strike Thursday, adding the US “strongly supports” Israel’s efforts to defend itself.
“The United States condemns the Iranian regime’s provocative rocket attack from Syria against Israeli citizens, and we strongly support Israel’s right to act in self-defense,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The Iranian regime’s deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East.”
HALEY UNCHAINED: Nikki Haley SLAMS UN for Total Silence on Hamas Attacks
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the UN Security Council this week over its total silence towards blatant Hamas attacks on Israeli citizens, saying the group is showcasing its “outrageous hypocrisy” towards the Jewish State.
Haley was speaking before the council Wednesday when she ripped the organization for completely ignoring the terror group’s rocket and mortar attacks on Israeli civilians, asking, “Who among us would accept 70 rockets launched into your country?”
Israeli Defense Forces unleashed a barrage of rockets and missiles on Hamas military bases this week after the terror organization launched over hundred Iranian-manufactured mortars towards southern Israel.
