PM Netanyahu's Response to Iran Nuclear Deal

PM Netanyahu's Response to Iran Nuclear Deal

The full text of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statement on the nuclear deal with Iran, July 14, 2015.


The world is a much more dangerous place today than it was yesterday.

The leading international powers have bet our collective future on a deal with the foremost sponsor of international terrorism. They’ve gambled that in ten years’ time, Iran’s terrorist regime will change while removing any incentive for it to do so. In fact, the deal gives Iran every incentive not to change.

In the coming decade, the deal will reward Iran, the terrorist regime in Tehran, with hundreds of billions of dollars. This cash bonanza will fuel Iran’s terrorism worldwide, its aggression in the region and its efforts to destroy Israel, which are ongoing.

Amazingly, this bad deal does not require Iran to cease its aggressive behavior in any way. And just last Friday, that aggression was on display for all to see.

While the negotiators were closing the deal in Vienna, Iran’s supposedly moderate president chose to go to a rally in Tehran and at this rally, a frenzied mob burned American and Israeli flags and chanted ‘Death to America, Death to Israel!’

Now, this didn’t happen four years ago. It happened four days ago.

Iran’s Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei, said on March 21 that the deal does not limit Iran’s aggression in any way. He said: ‘Negotiations with the United States are on the nuclear issue and on nothing else.’

And three days ago he made that clear again. ‘The United States’, he said, ’embodies global arrogance, and the battle against it will continue unabated even after the nuclear agreement is concluded.’

Here’s what Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Iran’s terrorist proxy Hezbollah, said about sanctions relief, which is a key component of the deal. He said: ‘A rich and strong Iran will be able to stand by its allies and friends in the region more than at any time in the past.’

Translation: Iran’s support for terrorism and subversion will actually increase after the deal.

In addition to filling Iran’s terror war chest, this deal repeats the mistakes made with North Korea.

There too we were assured that inspections and verifications would prevent a rogue regime from developing nuclear weapons.

And we all know how that ended.

The bottom line of this very bad deal is exactly what Iran’s President Rouhani said today: ‘The international community is removing the sanctions and Iran is keeping its nuclear program.’

By not dismantling Iran’s nuclear program, in a decade this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs, in fact an entire nuclear arsenal with the means to deliver it.

What a stunning historic mistake!

Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran and Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction.

We will always defend ourselves.

Thank you.

Mr Netanyahu is a brave and courageous leader and anyone who calls him a danger to Israel can't be thinking straight. Do you want him to hand Israel over for extinction? He's not dealing with rational people in Iran and the sooner he takes action against Iran the better, for your sakes as well as all the world's.

Obama is a gullible, inexperienced know-it-all who denies history while manipulating a gutless Secy of State to beat out a 2nd term accomplishment all for some kind of place in history. God helps us all.

Horse feathers

Thanks to HaShem, this deal with Iran signals a new begining and hopefully a better tomorrow. As far as BiBi is concerned, the only acceptable deal is the capitulation and obliteration of Iran and any one who does not see things his way, so much for democracy. I would submit that BiBi is currently the greatest danger for us in Israel and to the world. May HaShem save us from the likes of him.

President Obama has all the hallmarks of a well meaning Social Worker I.e. he means well,gives both sides the opportunity to do the "right thing" and is "disappointed" when plans don't work out,usually with a disastrous outcome, As to the
Iranian President, I am reminded of the words of my manager I worked with in Saudi Arabia, some years ago,he was from Beirut, and his advice to me was " everybody lies". I think he was referring to the politics of the time and giving me, a western woman, a hesaidads up of the Middle East dynamics. Every time I hear what the Iranians are saying, I hear my managers words again.How can the U.S. and the UK be so naive??? Who are their advisers?? Surely they will be scrutinising the Iranians all the way!! God bless Netanyahu and Israel
