“This ruthless regime continues to deny you your freedom. It prevents thousands of candidates from competing in elections, it steals money from your poor to fund a mass murderer like [Syrian President Bashar] Al-Assad. By calling daily for Israel's destruction, the regime hopes to instill hostility between us. This is wrong. We are your friend, not your enemy.”
– Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in video addressed to Iranian people
