Will 2018 continue a downward trend of killings in the name of Islam? (1,850 in 2016 to 1,595 in 2017)

This week, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu presented evidence of Iran’s nuclear program: https://youtu.be/qmSao-j7Xr4?t=7m41s
“First, Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons program. 100,000 secret files prove that they lied.

Third, Iran lied again in 2015, when it didn’t come clean to the IAEA, as required by the nuclear deal.”
