Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday held a series of interviews with European media outlets with the aim of convincing EU countries not to lift Iran sanctions.

From his office in Jerusalem, Netanyahu spoke to leading media outlets including France’s Le Monde, the British Financial Times, Germany’s ARD, French television channelTV24 and Britain’s Sky News.

“No deal is better than a bad deal, and a bad deal would be a partial agreement which lifts sanctions off Iran and leaves them with the ability to enrich uranium or to continue work on their heavy water plutonium, which is what is needed to produce nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told The Financial Times.

“Don’t give up now, finish the job, let it take effect,” Netanyahu said. “Don’t give up now, and don’t say later that I didn’t warn you.”

    Iran has commented that sanctions cannot prevent or deter them from achieving nuclear technology and this appears to be true. Nevertheless, sanctions represent the cumulative will of the international community which Israel will need when it finally needs to take action on the threat imposed by Iran. Absent that will, Iran and its proxies will be more prone to retaliate and that could lead to a regional if not worldwide conflagration. the nations of the world are playing with fire by lifting those sanctions and they all know this.
