Netanyahu: Historic US sanctions will ‘strangle’ Iranian terror

Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu praised the U.S. sanctions that snapped back into effect against Iran on Monday, calling them “historic” and saying that they will “strangle” Iranian state-sponsored terrorism.

Netanyahu said Monday at parliament that the Trump administration’s decision to restore sanctions was already having an effect. He called the move “a big day for the State of Israel.”

Israel has been a fierce opponent of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal from which the U.S. withdrew this year, saying the deal didn’t rein in Iran’s regional military activities.

The new sanctions against Iran’s shipping, financial and energy sectors come into effect Monday. The U.S. says the sanctions are not aimed at toppling the government, but at persuading it to radically change its policies, including its support for regional militant groups and its development of long-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

On Friday night, Trump issued a statement related to the sanctions, 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 added that the sanctions are “aimed at fundamentally altering the behavior of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” Previously, Pompeo presented Iran with a list of 12 specific demands with which it must comply before the U.S. considers lifting sanctions.

The 2015 nuclear agreement that lifted the sanctions flooded Iran with billions of dollars, which credible evidence indicates was used to support terror groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, back Assad’s murderous regime in Syria, and fight Saudi Arabia in a bloody proxy war in Yemen.

Critics of the deal also maintained that it did not adequately address Iran’s nuclear ambitions or its covert program to develop nuclear weapons.

以色列总理称赞美国新近恢复对伊朗的制裁,支持者希望这将成为世界上最强大的恐怖主义国家。

由美联社和世界以色列新闻工作人员

以色列总理本雅明内塔尼亚胡赞扬美国周一对伊朗实施的制裁措施,称其为“历史性”,并称他们将“扼杀”伊朗国家支持的恐怖主义。

内塔尼亚胡周一在议会表示特朗普政府恢复制裁的决定已经产生影响。他称此举是“以色列国的重要日子”。

以色列一直是美国今年撤出的2015年伊朗核协议的激烈反对者,称该协议并没有遏制伊朗的地区军事活动。

对伊朗航运,金融和能源部门的新制裁将于周一生效。美国表示,制裁并非旨在推翻政府,而是旨在说服政府从根本上改变其政策,包括支持地区激进组织及制定能够携带核弹头的远程弹道导弹。

星期五晚上,特朗普发表了一份有关制裁的声明,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补充说,制裁“旨在从根本上改变伊朗伊斯兰共和国的行为。”此前,庞培向伊朗提供了一份12项具体要求的清单,在美国考虑解除制裁之前,该要求必须遵守。

获得制裁的2015年核协议以数十亿美元淹没了伊朗,其可靠的证据表明,哈马和真主党等恐怖组织已经被用来支持阿萨德在叙利亚的杀戮政权,并在也门的血腥代理战争中与沙​​特阿拉伯作战。

该协议的批评者还认为,它没有充分解决伊朗的核野心或其发展核武器的秘密计划。
