Netanyahu said, "They are tarnishing Israel’s reputation before other nations. When I was the leader of the opposition party, I never did this," Amad News reported.

He continued, "The protests are organized and funded; those who organize these protests are armed with vast amounts of money."

He considered that they are joining "the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Iran, and others" as enemies of Israel, in statements issued by him early Monday, September 18, during his conversation with journalists at the airport before leaving for the United States.

Netanyahu’s US visit
Netanyahu's visit to the United States begins in California, where he will meet with Elon Musk, the owner of the "X" platform (formerly Twitter), and others, for discussions on the development of artificial intelligence in Israel.

He will also meet with U.S. President Joe Biden next Wednesday in New York, on the sidelines of UN events.

Netanyahu is also scheduled to meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
