Dismissing the notion of any Israeli connection to the ongoing protests in Iran, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the heroic demonstrators protesting against the cruel regime in a YouTube video published Monday.
I heard today Irans President [Hassan] Rouhanis claim that Israel is behind the protests in Iran. Its not only false. Its laughable. And unlike Rouhani, I will not insult the Iranian people. They deserve better, the prime minister began. [ ]
Irans cruel regime wastes tens of billions of dollars spreading hate. This money could have built schools and hospitals, Netanyahu said. No wonder mothers and fathers are marching in the streets. The regime is terrified of them, of their own people. Thats why they jail students. Thats why they ban social media.
But Im sure that fear will not triumph, insisted the prime minister, calling the Iranian people smart, sophisticated and proud.
Netanyahu went on to criticize Europe, which he claimed was not as supportive of the Iranian people as Israel. Sadly, many European governments watch in silence as heroic young Iranians are beaten in the streets. Thats just not right. And I, for one, will not stay silent.

Thanks Olog-hai. Sometimes a pistol-whipping is better done with words, as the PM demonstrates here.
