The white powdery substance discovered at the Israeli Consulate in Manhattan was inside a threatening letter to Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, police sources said Saturday. "An [Iranian] military presence endangers not just us, but also our Arab neighbors".
When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sits down with US President Donald Trump on Monday at the sidelines of the UN General Assembly (GA), the Iranian nuclear deal will reportedly remain the focus of their discussion. An Israeli business delegation accompanied Netanyahu on the trip.
Netanyahu is preparing for his crucial meeting with Trump, where he is expected to suggest that the Iranian nuclear deal be nullified or at least have significant changes applied. Netanyahu is expected to demand that the United States impose upon Iran a stricter sanctions regime, heightened nuclear program supervision, extension of the ban on weapons-grade uranium enrichment beyond the current 10-year bar, destruction of advanced centrifuges, elimination of the long-range missile program, and a commitment to discontinue terror funding for Hezbollah and Hamas, reported Ynet.
Netanyahu is visiting Manhattan for the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, which concludes on September 25.
Israel's military force has just completed a comprehensive 11-day exercise created to address issues that could arise in a possible war with the Iranian-backed Hezbollah proxy force, based in Lebanon but now also fighting in Syria.
