Influential Egyptian TV personality Tawfik Okasha has reportedly told Israel to bomb Iran. Addressing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “dear friend,” Okasha said that Israel should bomb the Bushehr Nuclear Reactor, Breaking Christian News reports.
"Put your trust in God and bomb it. We are with you and if you need fuel for the jets, we will give it to you,” Okasha said.
Netanyahu said Okasha’s words are proof Egypt cannot be trusted.
"In the last few days, Iran has shown again why it can't be trusted," Netanyahu said.
According to Breaking Christian News, the Israeli Prime Minister does not approve of the nuclear deal.
"Iran insists on maintaining its formidable nuclear capabilities with which it could produce nuclear bombs. Iran insists on removing all sanctions immediately. And Iran refuses to allow effective inspections of all its suspect facilities. At the same time, Iran continues its unbridled aggression in the region and its terrorism throughout the world," Netanyahu said in a statement.
"We must not let Iran, the foremost sponsor of global terrorism, have an easy path to nuclear weapons which will threaten the entire world," he continued.
