This week, the leaders of Israel, UK, Germany and US launched yet another joint propaganda campaign against Iran. The aim is to get the UN Security Council to impose “crippling sanctions” on Iran, a step that would ultimately facilitate their next brutal invasion.
Actually, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it is possible for “the coalition of the willing” to impose these sanctions “even without a UN Security Council decision”. 
Meanwhile, more than 100 member countries of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) declared their support to Iran’s proposal to ban military attacks on nuclear installations. The proposal will be voted at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) general conference in September.

excerpts from: PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech at Axel Springer, Berlin, Germany
We cannot allow this to be repeated. We, means the whole civilized world. We cannot allow those who wish to perpetrate mass death, those who call for the destruction of the Jewish people or the Jewish state, to go unchallenged. […] [T]he most important thing to do is to nip it at the bud.

The Germans were the ones who were pursuing in a systematic way the annihilation of the Jewish people, planned it and implemented it in the form of the Holocaust. This is an everlasting, an eternal responsibility of our country, and part of a basic tenet of our policy, of our raison d’être as we put it, is to defend Israel always, and this is a responsibility incumbent upon my generation, coming out of another very terrible result in the past, and that is why we feel so responsible now also as regards Iran.
