Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for increased pressure on Iran, saying its “empire is tottering” at the beginning of a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Lisbon on Wednesday.

“And I say let’s make it totter even further,” Netanyahu stressed, adding that “Iran’s aggression,” in turn, “is growing.”

“Iran is increasing its aggression as we speak, even today, in the region. They are trying to have staging grounds against us and the region from Iran itself, from Iraq, from Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and Yemen,” the Israeli prime minister said.

Netanyahu refused to comment on media reports about a Wednesday airstrike on an Iranian-controlled weapons storehouse in Eastern Syria.

Netanyahu quiere tapar su corrupción con falso patriotismo, su excusa siempre Irán… muy pronto se acabará su argumento, espero que el pueblo Israelí despierte y termine con el Sionismo Fascista.

He’s nowhere to be as corrupted as Khamenei which has soaked up about $100bn from Iranian people. Zionism is a leftist ideology. Iran is fascist.
