Hadash lawmakers condemned far-right Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s much hyped “revelation of a trove of Iranian files” on Monday night, April 30, and warned about the risk of war with Iran.
Joint List MK Dov Khenin (Hadash) said: “The international agreement on the nuclear issue was the right move, and it must continue rather than take the path to a terrible regional war that no one will win.”
“All the empty folders, CDs and English, and for what?” Khenin asked rhetorically. “Netanyahu gave an election speech this evening in which he heated up old noodles which were cooked many years before the nuclear deal was signed.” Khenin emphasized that Netanyahu was using the speech to distract the Israeli public from the ongoing corruption investigations against him.”
Netanyahu’s presentation came a day after he met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who said that his country will withdraw from the nuclear accord on May 12 barring any significant changes. Netanyahu reportedly also discussed the intelligence material with Pompeo and the possibility of war against Iran.
