Israeli Prime Minister Terms Iranian Regime Cruel and Ruthless in Persian New Year Message

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has called the Iranian regime cruel and ruthless in a message marking the Persian New Year, hoping for a regime change for the people of Iran.

“Nowruz literally means new day. And that’s my greatest wish to you, the Iranian people – that you will see a new day – a day of freedom from the cruel Iranian regime,” Bennett said in a video message on twitter.

“I wish the people of Iran a year of health, prosperity and peace. Nowruz means a new day, and I wish the people of Iran to see a new day – a day of freedom from the cruel Iranian regime. A new day to drink clean water, speak freely and live your lives with dignity,” Bennett added.

According to Bennett, the people of Israel and Iran share so much in common and both “are vibrant peoples” with ancient history and rich cultures, who seek a “brighter future.”

Bennett added that the people of both the countries (Iran and Israel) face a common threat – the brutal and oppressive Iranian regime whether the “IRGC, the world’s single largest terrorist organizations, its proxies, or the Basij.”

“We know that the Iranian regime does not represent you (the Iranian people) and they continue to deny you the freedom you deserve,” Bennett furthered.

Bennett once again wished (Nowruz) as a new day where “we defeat the force of darkness with the strength of our friendship and our pursuit of freedom.”

Bennett also hoped that the New Year will “free the Iranian people from the shackles of oppression of the Iranian regime.”

Israel and Iran are seeing each other as an existential threat and they have been arch-enemy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution that overthrew the western-backed regime in Iran.

Bennett’s remarks also come as Israel has vehemently opposed the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The deal will give Iran relief from ongoing sanctions in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

There has been no reaction from the Iranian government on Bennett’s remarks so far.

Bennett also wished “Nowruz Mubarak” to those celebrating this holiday around the world.
