"Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that he is speaking up on behalf of the whole region that is threatened by Iran and this is bringing "Israel" and its Arab neighbors closer together.
Netanyahu told Fox News's Sean Hannity that although he was the most outspoken against the Iran nuclear deal, Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were quietly saying the same thing.
"The Arab countries sort of whisper things in the dark, they wouldn't say it outright," he said. "I had to sort of speak out for everyone in the region."
"Iran has become more aggressive, more deadly, sponsoring more terrorism," Netanyahu who was visiting the US told Hannity.
Netanyahu praised former US President Barack Obama for his support of "Israel", but said that he is glad to have a new president in the White House who sees eye to eye with "Israel" and the Arab states on the dangers of a nuclear Iran.
"It's dangerous for America, dangerous for "Israel", dangerous for the Arabs," he said. "Everybody now understands it. And there's an American president who understands it. And we're talking about what to do about this common threat."
At a joint press conference on Wednesday US President Donald Trump spoke of his goal to prevent Iran ever realizing its nuclear ambitions.
"One of the worst deals I've ever seen is the Iran deal," he said. "My administration has already imposed new sanctions on Iran, and I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing - I mean ever - a nuclear weapon."
The "Israeli" prime minister said that the other Middle East countries are concerned that Iran will have nuclear weapons in 10 years.
"The deal essentially said this - it said ‘no bomb today, 100 bombs tomorrow, in 10 years,'" Netanyahu said. "And Iran doesn't change its attitude... We're all prey to this militant Islamic regime that will arm itself with nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach you."
Netanyahu ended the interview, saying that Iran also poses a clear threat to the US.
