(JNS.org) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against multiple aspects of the threat posed by Iran over the weekend.

After the Iranian army said on Saturday that it deployed its first-ever suicide drone, Netanyahu said in a press conference with U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), “Iran today conducted an exercise with a suicide drone. I don’t have to convince you, Senator, that the most important task before us is to prevent this dangerous regime from having nuclear weapons.”

At his cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu noted the recent Iranian effort “to intensify terrorist actions in Judea and Samaria.”

“None other than the Palestinian Authority ambassador in Tehran said that he was enthused by Iranian ruler [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei’s instructions to send weapons to the West Bank, and he added, and I quote, ‘The Zionist regime is an aggressive cancerous growth which, sooner or later, must be eliminated,’” Netanyahu said. “Now I emphasize, it was not a Hamas man who said this, it was the Palestinian Authority ambassador in Tehran.”

Instead of “dealing with this incitement,” the United Nations is mulling a unilateral Palestinian statehood resolution that “would endanger our security,” Netanyahu said.
