JERUSALEM, Israel -- Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is giving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a hard time.
In a speech, Olmert accused Netanyahu of what he called "making war" with the U.S. administration over its support of an agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.
But Netanyahu, who is in Rome for two days to meet with Italian leaders and Pope Francis, said he would not be quiet when it comes to Israeli security.
On Sunday evening, the Israeli prime minister and his Italian counterpart Enrico Letta attended the candle lighting ceremony for the fifth day of Hanukkah at the Great Synagogue in Rome.
Netanyahu used the moment to warn the world again about Iran's ambitions.
He told the Jewish community that Iran is looking for atomic bombs, which threaten not only Israel, but Italy and Europe. He pledged not to allow Iran to use its nuclear power against Israel.
