Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid sent a joint stinging message Friday morning to the US president in Iraq” and should not remove them from the terrorism list.
According to i24news, the message came after news on Thursday that the Biden administration was willing to remove the Iranian Revolutionary Guards from the list of foreign terrorist organizations as part of negotiations on the nuclear deal.
“The Revolutionary Guards are behind attacks against American civilians and soldiers throughout the Middle East, they are behind plans to assassinate high-ranking American government officials, and the Revolutionary Guards participated in the killing of hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians and devastated Lebanon, and are involved in the murderous repression of Iranian civilians,” the letter said. They kill Jews because they are Jews, Christians because they are Christians, and Muslims because they do not surrender to them.”
Bennett and Lapid added: “The war on terror is an important task, and we believe the United States will not abandon its closest allies for false promises from terrorists.”
