Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned Iranian-backed terror groups were ramping up pressure on the Jewish state. In a statement before the U.N. General Assembly on Monday, Bennett said the Ayatollah Regime provided funding, weapons and training to Shi’a Militias that were seeking to destroy Israel.

Bennett added Iran was advancing its nuclear program. He urged the U.S. and European nations not to restore a nuclear deal with Iran.

“Iran is currently violating the IAEA’s safeguard agreements and it’s getting away with it. They harass inspectors and sabotage their investigations and they’re getting away with it,” he asserted. “They’re enriching uranium to the level of 60%, which is only one step short of weapons grade material, and they’re getting away with it.”

Bennett also criticized anti-Israeli sentiments among left-leaning public in the U.S. and Europe. He went on to say, “hating Israel does not make you woke.”
