Opening his first weekly cabinet meeting Sunday morning, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned against the threat of a nuclear Iran following the election of the hardline Ebrahim Raisi as president.

“Of all the people that Khamenei could have chosen, he chose the ‘Hangman of Tehran,’ the man infamous among Iranians and across the world for leading the Death Committees, which executed thousands of innocent Iranian citizens throughout the years,” said Bennett.

“Raisi’s election is, I would say, the last chance for the world powers to wake up before returning to the nuclear agreement, and to understand who they are doing business with. These guys are murderers, mass murderers. A regime of brutal hangmen must never be allowed to have weapons of mass destruction that will enable it to not kill thousands, but millions,” Bennett added.

“Israel’s position will not change on this,” the Prime Minister concluded.

The cabinet also approved establishing a state commission of inquiry into the Meron disaster. Forty five people were killed in a stampede during the holiday of Lag B’Omer at the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in Meron, a holy site.

Other cabinet business included the approval of 36 diplomats to key foreign service positions around the world and the extension of Lt. Aviv Kochavi’s term as IDF Chief of Staff for an extra year.
