Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

At the Public Security Ministry in Lod, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu commented today on the terms of the nuclear deal currently being discussed by the US and Iran, saying “We know that Teheran knows the details of the talks. Now I tell you that Israel also knows the details of the proposed agreement. I think this is a bad agreement that is dangerous for the State of Israel, and not just for it. If anyone thinks otherwise what is there to hide here?”

His comments echo closely his remarks from earlier in the week made before the Conference of Presidents, a group of American Jewish leaders.

Tensions between the U.S. government and the Israeli government over the question of an Iran deal have been on the rise in recent days, since terms allegedly forming part of an agreement appeared in the Israeli press, with some in the US government laying blame on Netanyahu for propagating that information. Reports that the US had throttled back the sharing of information with the Israeli government surfaced, as well, and were acknowledged as accurate by White House and State Department officials.

    And Netanyahu’s alternative strategy is…..

    Attacking others without stating policies yourself is a bankrupt electioneering strategy.

    The impression I have is that Netanyahu has no answers himself. The first imperative is to open proper dialogue

    This posturing doesn’t help. We’ve heard the words. What’s the deal?

      Perhaps that’s because the only strategy the US is painting Israel into is one of having to attack the Iranian Nuclear facilities. The leader of the free world is creating a policy of appeasement.

      Neville Chamberlain didn’t have a Neville Chamberlain to look in the hindsight of history. President Obama does.

      This President was elected on the theory that he would stop all wars. His policies are guaranteeing that there not only will be war, but a war that perhaps is so unimaginable that Netanyahu cannot come out and say it. He knows the thinking of the Obama administration and European powers.

      So, I disagree with you that Netanyahu doesn’t have any answers. I just think that he sees the foolish Obama – who could have put a stop to this without war – creating the potential for the biggest one ever.
