In a recent interview with the BBC, Israel’s Minister of the Economy, Naftali Bennett responded to Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani’s speech, at last week’s General Assembly of the UN, by saying that “soft words in New York” won’t stop Iran’s nuclear enrichment program.

During his speech at the UN, Rouhani spoke of the hope for “dialogue over conflict, and moderation over extremism.” Minister Bennett expressed that Rouhani’s actions, including installing over 1,000 new centrifuges capable of creating nuclear weapons-grade uranium and refusing to allow UN inspectors access to Iranian nuclear weapons development facilities, reflect a violent agenda that speaks louder than Rouhani’s words of peace.
