Netanyahu ➠ Deal Will Give Iran Money For Its ‘Worldwide Terror Machine’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday continued to call for the rejection of the framework of a multi-country deal that with Iran that seeks to limit the country’s nuclear capability.
“I’m not trying to kill any deal. I’m trying to kill a bad deal,” Netanyahu said on “Meet the Press.” He argued that the current plan “leaves the preeminent terrorist state of our time with a vast nuclear infrastructure.”
The prime minister went on to say that “not one centrifuge is destroyed.” However, according to the paramaters for the deal released by the U.S. State Department, Iran has agreed to reduce installed centrifuges by two-thirds and place the excess in internationally monitored storage.
Netanyahu also said he believes lifting some of the sanctions on Iran and leaving them with some nuclear capability could result in a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
“It would spark an arms race among the Sunni states, a nuclear arms race in the Middle East,” the Israeli leader warned. “And the Middle East crisscrossed with nuclear tripwires is a nightmare for the world. I think this deal is a dream deal for Iran and it’s a nightmare deal for the world.” More
