ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: In a combative address to the U.N. General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed a charm offensive by Iran's Hassan Rouhani as a ruse concocted by a "wolf in sheep's clothing," and declared that Israel is ready to stand alone to deny Tehran an atomic weapon. "Now I know, Rouhani doesn't sound like Ahmadinejad. But when it comes to Iran's nuclear weapons program the only difference between them is this - Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing, Rouhani is a wolf in sheep's clothing. A wolf who thinks he can pull the eyes -- the wool over the eyes of the international community," Netanyahu said. Netanyahu's address, the last at this year's gathering of world leaders in New York, reflected Israeli worries that the emerging signs of what could become a U.S.-Iranian rapprochement might lead to a premature easing of international sanctions and military threats designed to deny Iran the means to make a bomb.
