Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appealed directly to the Iranian people to stop their government from developing nuclear weapons in a Fox News interview on Thursday.

Appearing on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren," Netanyahu said the whole world has a vested interest in keeping Iran from developing a nuclear arsenal. 

"Certainly we in Israel, the people of America, the United States, they understand this would be nuclear terrorism galore," he said. "Europeans, Arabs. No one wants to see nuclear weapons."

The people of Iran don't want to see nuclear weapons in the hands of the "tyranny" of their government, he said, "because it will become immortal, like North Korea. You'll never regain your freedom. You'll be slaves to this tyranny forever." 

Netanyahu said there is no freedom in Iran, only "a dark dictatorship that seeks to develop nuclear weapons with mad designs on the United States." 

He repeated claims, made earlier Thursday to CBS News,  that Iran is developing Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. ICBMs aren't targeted at Israel, he said. Shorter-range missiles can reach his country. ICBMs are clearly intended for the United States, he said. 

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton told Newsmax's TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"  on Wednesday that Netanyahu faces an uphill battle in persuading the world of Iran's nuclear intentions.

I think they've been lying to us for 20 years about their nuclear weapons program," Bolton said.
