They deny the Holocaust. They call for another Holocaust.
They are aiming to build a nuclear weapon and they deny it. A nuclear
bomb in the hands of an irresponsible regime is an imminent danger to
the world. […]
In addition to the nuclear bomb, Iran is constructing long-range
missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. It can reach the far corners
of the world, including Europe. […]
Iran supports terrorism throughout the world. Its main proxy,
Hezbollah, carries out terror attacks and threatens the stability of
the entire region. […]
Today, Hezbollah, supported by Iran, is destroying Lebanon. Hezbollah
is a terror organization. Not a political movement. They collect
missiles. They are trigger-happy. They hide missiles in peaceful towns
and villages. By doing so, they turn them into a war target.
Hezbollah divided Lebanon politically, religiously and ethnically. It
turned the land of the cedar tree into a scorched and barren land.
Hezbollah is a state within a state. A private army apart from the
national army. It sends soldiers to support the massacre of a bloody
dictator in Syria. With no authorization of the government of which it
is a member.
Recently, 20 terror attempts by Hezbollah were counted all over the

the Syrian people from Iran’s proxies. Save your citizens and
ours from Hezbollah.
The international community must designate Hezbollah as a terrorist

best solution to put an end to the Syrian tragedy might be achieved by
empowering the Arab League, of which Syria is a member, to intervene.
The intervention of Western forces would be perceived as a foreign
Arab League can and should form a provisional government in Syria to
stop the massacre, to prevent Syria from falling to pieces.
United Nations should support an Arab force in blue helmets.
