Netanyahu to Washington: History Will Not Forgive Those Who Failed to Stop Iran

“History will not forgive those who failed to stop Iran's nuclear program,” was Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stark message to President Obama during a meeting with top U.S. senators on Saturday evening.

The delegation is led by Sen. John McCain of the Senate Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees and the 2008 Republican Presidential candidate and also includes Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Senator Christopher Coons (D-DE), and Christian Brose, a senior advisor on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“Building in Jerusalem is not the problem of the world. A nuclear Iran is the problem of the world,” Netanyahu told the senators during the meeting, which took place in his office in Jerusalem.
