“We are your friend, not your enemy,” Netanyahu told the Iranian people, adding that their ruthless regime must be defeated – an issue that he’ll be discussing with Trump.

In a video message directed to the Iranian people, with subtitles in Farsi, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his message reaches every one of them – “young and old, religious and secular, man and woman.”

The Iranian regime is cruel, but not the people, the Israel leader said, adding that he longs for the day when Israelis and Iranians will again be free to visit each other’s country.

Working towards this goal, Netanyahu plans to discuss the threat of the Iranian regime with US President Donald Trump.
