Netanyahu thanks Trump for new sanctions against ‘murderous terror regime’ Iran

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, a staunch opponent of the 2015 nuclear agreement concluded with Iran by the Obama administration, said Saturday that President Donald Trump had made an “historic” decision by restoring sanctions against “the murderous terror regime in Iran that is endangering the entire world.”

In a statement released by his office, Netanyahu said, “The effect of the initial sanctions has already been felt,” referring to a severe financial crisis in Iran that has triggered popular protests.

The Trump administration restored sanctions targeting Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors on Friday, but carved out exemptions for eight countries that can still import oil from Iran without penalty.

Following the announcement, Trump tweeted a “Game of Thrones”-inspired movie poster image consisting of a photo of himself over which the phrase “Sanctions are Coming, November 5” was superimposed.

Later on Friday night, Trump issued a statement explaining, “Our objective is to force the regime into a clear choice: either abandon its destructive behavior or continue down the path toward economic disaster.”

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo maintained that the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” a goal he previously presented via a list of 12 specific demands that Iran must meet before the U.S. lifts sanctions.

The 2015 nuclear agreement left Iran flush with billions of dollars in revenues it had not been able to access. Critics of the deal in Israel and the U.S. produced evidence that Iran used the money to fund terror groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, prop up the Assad regime in Syria, and fight a proxy war in Yemen with its longstanding rival Saudi Arabia.

Those who opposed the deal also argue that it did not effectively address Iran’s nuclear ambitions, including its efforts to develop atomic weapons.

Trump repeatedly referred to the agreement as “horrible,” deeming it the “worst ever” agreement negotiated by the United States.

On Friday, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer expressed his support for Trump’s decision, tweeting, “Thank you, Mr. President, for restoring sanctions against an Iranian regime that vows and works to destroy the Jewish state.”

以色列总理感谢特朗普总统恢复对伊朗的经济制裁,伊朗继续威胁犹太国家。

以色列总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡是奥巴马政府与伊朗达成的2015年核协议的坚定反对者,周六表示,唐纳德·特朗普总统通过恢复对“伊朗凶残的恐怖主义政权正在危及的制裁”做出“历史性”决定整个世界。“

内塔尼亚胡在其办公室发表的一份声明中表示,“已经感受到了最初制裁的影响”,指的是伊朗发生的严重金融危机引发了民众抗议活动。

特朗普政府周五恢复了针对伊朗航运,金融和能源部门的制裁,但是对八个仍然可以从伊朗进口石油而不受处罚的国家进行了豁免。

宣布之后,特朗普在推特上发布了一部“权力的游戏” – 电影海报图片,其中包括一张他自己的照片,上面写着“制裁即将来临,11月5日”这一短语。

周五晚上,特朗普发表声明解释说:“我们的目标是迫使政权明确选择:要么放弃破坏性行为,要么继续走向经济灾难。”

美国国务卿迈克庞培认为,制裁“旨在从根本上改变伊朗伊斯兰共和国的行为”,他此前提出的目标是通过伊朗必须在美国解除制裁之前必须满足的12个具体要求的清单。

2015年核协议给伊朗带来了无法获得的数十亿美元的收入。对以色列和美国交易的批评者证实,伊朗利用这笔资金资助哈马斯和真主党等恐怖组织,支持叙利亚的阿萨德政权,并与其长期竞争对手沙特阿拉伯在也门进行代理战争。

那些反对这项协议的人也认为它没有有效地解决伊朗的核野心,包括其发展核武器的努力。

特朗普一再称该协议“可怕”,认为这是美国谈判达成的“有史以来最糟糕”的协议。

星期五,以色列驻美国大使罗恩·德默表达了对特朗普决定的支持,并发表评论,“总统先生,谢谢你恢复对誓言并致力于摧毁犹太国家的伊朗政权的制裁。”
