Israel’s Foreign Ministry has launched a website in Farsi, aimed at sharing Israeli water technologies directly with Iranians despite their government’s open hostility to the Jewish State.
“The Iranian people are victims of a cruel and tyrannical regime that denies them vital water,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says in a video message recorded in English with Farsi subtitles. (see below)
“Israel stands with the people of Iran, and that is why I want to help and save countless Iranian lives… Millions of Iranian children are suffering due to mismanagement, incompetence and the theft of vital resources by the Iranian regime.”
Israel extends a hand of friendship
with valuable Water technologies
Today I’m going to make an unprecedented offer to Iran. It relates to water.
Posted by Benjamin Netanyahu – בנימין נתניהו on Sunday, June 10, 2018
Netanyahu says that like Iran, Israel also suffers from droughts and water challenges, and has invented cutting edge technologies to address them. “Israel recycles nearly 90% of its waste water, that’s far more than any other country on earth… Israel has the valuable water knowhow to prevent environmental catastrophe in Iran,” the prime minister says.
Netanyahu adds that he wants to “share this information with the people of Iran” but that “sadly” Iran bans Israelis from visiting the country. Saying that because of the ban, Israel would “have to get creative,” the prime minister reveals that Israel has launched a Farsi website with detailed plans on how Iranians can recycle their waste water.
“We will show Iranian farmers how they can save their crops and feed their families,’” he says.
“The Iranian regime shouts ‘death to Israel’, in response, Israel shouts ‘life to the Iranian people!’ The people of Iran are good and decent, they shouldn’t have to face such a cruel regime alone. We are with you. We will help so that millions of Iranians won’t have to suffer. The hatred of Iran’s regime will not stop the respect and the friendship between our two peoples,” Netanyahu concludes.
