"bibi: my story. it is israel's story, and america's story, the world's story. e so readable and understand could. we walks through from early in his life up to really, current day. s interesting. services american presidents and secretaries of states and so forth. and i want to start not at the begin, but prime minister. i want to start with something that regime in iran. now, president trump pretty much had his foot on the throat of had regime, these got rid of deal that b obama administration negotiated, prob president biden is in there begging same regime to sign anything, anything, even though they keep thumbing its nose at united states and working at break-neck
speed to get their nukes. >> i think it is height of folly, to enable iran to get nuclear weapons, we're seeing the danger of having agressaged with nuclear weapons. they chant death to israel. but they chant death to america. we're the small say the in, the -- satan and you are the big satan. you will be held hostage forever. you have seen what it, it is like with a rogue regime like north korea with nuclear weapons, and half of asia is quaking in fear. to have the acra toldas committed. >> committed to destroying our way of life is nothing
short of folly, it has to be stopped. i devoted a lot of my time to stopping it. i think that any responsible policy on part of united states should do, that should not facilitate the iran deal that paves a highway with gold, billions of dollars, it should work opposite. it put crippling sanctions on iran and military threat to prprevent them from acquiring weapons of mass destruction. >> i think that they give lip service to the opposition to the upcoming nuclear deal, because the majority of public is against it. the way that you galvanize the opposition to go to u.n. like i did and draw a ri
red line to , and to go to a joint of congress. was not an easy thing to do. i wrote about it. i debated with myself, i said when you have a regime that is openly calling for aaannihilation ofs jewish state, i had no choice. i did it and in every form and every television program. and every meeting with leaders, i wish i -- that doesn't change the fact that iran's nuclear weapon threaten us, they also threaten you, and they threaten the peace of the world, do you not want a fanatical islamist regime to be armed with nuclear weapons. >> the book you can get it is the bibimystory.com.
amazon.com. any major bookstore in united states as well. what was your relationship. you write about these things in the book. i want americans and others to know this. what was your relationship like with barack obama? >> it started out in a super -- janitor's office in washington, i was leaving washington, he was a senator then. we had a good meeting, i look forward to cooperating with him in case he would be elected. i was run, he was running, when we go the elected we met in his really. and i in in in israel, i said look. he sai -- we're pragmatic enough to work for our country interest. i hoped. in some things we did. but on iran question and
palestinian question, we always parted. thought that obama was not a weak person, but strongly committed to his beliefs, they were just in my opinion on these crucial matters the wrong beliefs, we had a clash when i realized he was pursuing a deal with iran that nominally supposed to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons but not kicks the can forward but allowing iran with american and international seal of approval to develop nuclear -- become a threshold nuclear state with break out time that obama himself would be zero in a few years. break out time to a nuclear weapon, i thought, this is something i cannot accept. question not accnot i accept. i believe in preventing iran from having nuclear weapon,
i sought to apply everything that i had, that included taking difficult decision of confronts a sitting america president and his policies, i did it. mark: then, joe biden finally on this subject. you were prime minister for a period of time when he was president. and you have hamas raining missiles down. you talk about this in your boo book. what is joe biden's reaction. >> biden, i have known for 40 years since he was a i don't think senator in washington. i came as deputy ambassador, he says, bibi, i love you, but i don't agree with a word you say, said joe, sometimes a recep ka re-- reciprocate that. he tried to knock out their missile launches, they
emplaced in civilian neighborhoods, it was supported throughout our right to exercise self-defense, he was under great pressure from certain wing of the democratic party, so he started saying, you have to end it. i said, no, joe, i have to keep going until we accomplish our objectives it took about 10 days for us. but, i would say, the american pressure and the israeli action met at point we have come little bit the our objective, we stopped. we didn't get to the point of confronting it i think that biden is sympathetic to israel but his policy on this, unfortunately, reflects his policy on palestinian question. and on iran. i think that is also misdirected. i am trying to be a diplomat here. but i think it is wrong for
america to seek t to contain an iranian nuclear weapon, to say they will have it anyway, so let them have it, no. they have to be stopped, you don't want a regime that believes in the destruction of america to have that. you need strong leadership to reinstate a credible military threat on iran, it is the only thing that will stop them. if you look at rogue countries, that and i wrote it in my book, the rogue countries, that try to develop nuclear weapons. one was saddam hussein iraq. second was syria also stopped by israel military action and third libya.
fourth was north korea. there was no military threat. there was a series of agreements which north korea violated and result is they have a nuclear arsenal that can threaten you and fifth circris iran for one year alone after second gulf war, thought that america would take action against it, they suspended their nuclear program after a year they realized there was no such threat, they have been going at it i have devoted many years to do everything in my power to stop them, stop them through military operation. and political act, stop them through programs like this i think that it requires american leadership. to stop iran to prevent iran from having nuclear weapons, and proposed agreement is opposite of what is required. mark: it looks like president trump realized that. and understand that. and got out of that iran
deal. and put economic sanctions on iran. looks like he saw the same with the palestinians, he cut off funding for palestinians, and he could see that abbas that they were playing money to terrorist activities. then, the biden administration reversed course almost across the board adopted obama policies, so now we have a situation where the palestinians are commi committing more actions of terrorism against israelis and saudis moving toward z the chinese and russians you had more peace deals 4, during your prime minister ship than all of the prime ministers combined before you. sounds like we are headed in the wrong directed with lapid and biden administration. >> yes, for a quarter you a century.
prevalent wisdom only way israel would break out to have more peace agreements with arab countries by having an agreement with palestinians, it may sound logical it was not, it placed an impossible barrier, palestinians didn't want peace with israel, they wanted peace without israe israel. they vetoed go peace agreements after the two with ejich egypt and jordan . you go around the palestinians, and you make peace with the broa broader arab world than maybe palestinians of curb rejectism to israel, that is what we ended up
doing it happened because of power of israel that we had been able to achieve through economic reforms of free markets, through military reforms, and through diplomatic prowess that combined the two. it is peace through strength. through the iron triangle of peace. economic, military, and diplomatic strength it paved way. mark: when we come back mr. prime minister, i want to pursue that iron triangle of strength, the book you can get it at bibimystory.com. and amazon.com. or any major bookstore, i encourage you to get it, it comes out tuesday, you can order it immediately. it is a fantastic book. we'll be right back. age is just a number. and mine's unlisted. try boost® high protein

mr. prime minister. you have a section in the book. throughout the book, you talk about power, talk about leadership. what it takes you talk about the triangle. >> we live in a very troubled world, a world in crisis, crisis in ukraine, you know roll out in o ominous ways. how do you stabilize it, get peace? the those who believe the way do this is soft power. commit tcommitment to democracy will assure the arc of history as martin luther king said bends today justice. i think it say brittle arc
that is break. so, i believe that soft power by itself without backing of hard power, hard power is military power and strong economy power, without hard powering soft power is useless, we cannot gonguarantee that forces of darkness will overcome th the forces of good. to give those angels an opportunity. you need hard power, if there is one lesson in world today to understand is that free democratic countries have to be strong, and have to have leadership to apply strength. strength. >> ystrength. >> you dis jude ie.
>> i devoted a great part of my life to ensure israel, they were massacred and exiled leaded to worst massacre of the world the holocaust we now never be defense less we ul have the power, but you need an army. everyone understood that, but f35 and drones and it costs money. where do you get money, only way you get money in my view not through the high tax socialist economy that israel had. was to transform it. through a free market revolution to a capitalist economy. i destreeted mu devotedded much of my time as finance minter. and prime minister. to affect a free market revolution in israel, i believe in it but also it was the instrument to give
israel the mines to keep -- shore up its military, and intelligence and cyber capabilities, the combination of israeli civilian technology, should which is ou outstanding and military technology, also outstanding gave us a third power, which is diplomatic power, countries came to israel because they needed us. that placed israel had us rise on the ladder of the nations, we are ranked, i don't know if you know this, israel gdp, because of they from free market preformed surpassed great britain, and japan and france and canada. free markets work, we're ranked by the university of pennsylvania poll that ranks 20,000 opinion leaders.
consistently. israel ranked number 8 in the world powers. that tells you that it works, that is what i did. and the arab countries in the gulf in particular took note, when they saw israel strong, militarily standing up to economy and economically with the civilian technology they want, that was really what produced the i would say foundation for the hit historic abraham accords you it know that meetings that i had with the gulf leaders, and i wrote it in the book, took place after i gave the speech in 2015 in the u.s. and joint session of congress, against the iran deal, that is when we got phone calls they said could we meet. we did meet in second with the meetings that produced the foundation of the start
of the peace accords, peace through strengths, iron triangle of strength. mark: milton friedman noticed you in 2005, he said among other things that israel was a socialist state, until it stops becoming a socialist state it will not succeed. not succeed economically and other ways, certainly it has the capacity. he said fortunately finance minister benjamin netanyahu who specialized in economic issues understands the problem. and he selling to use his willing capital to bring a solution that was in 2005. you also went to m.i.t., you are highly educated here in the united states i want to pursue some of this when we come back, your experience in the u.s., and i want american people to know that
