"We do not delude ourselves," Netanyahu said during Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting. "The international community mustn't be tempted into wishful thinking. We must remember that in any case, (Supreme Leader) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the one determining Iran's nuclear policy."
"We must keep in mind that the Iranian leader (Khamenei) disqualified the candidates who did not hold his radical views. Among those he did allow (to run), the candidate who was seen as the least affiliated with the regime was elected. But we are still talking about someone who refers to the State of Israel as the 'great Zionist Satan,'" the PM told the cabinet meeting.
