JNS.org – In an interview with Israel’s Channel 10 television network on Saturday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry accused Israeli critics of the framework nuclear deal between world powers and Iran of “hysteria.”

Kerry said, “I believe that where we are heading will in fact protect Israel. President [Barack] Obama has absolutely pledged [Iran] will not get a nuclear weapon. … We will have inspectors in there every single day.”

The secretary of state said critics of the deal “really need to look at the facts, and they need to look at the science of what is behind those facts.” Earlier last week, Kerry told the Boston Globe that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position on Iran is “mythology.”

On Saturday, in a video message marking the Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s 30th anniversary, Netanyahu said the framework deal “will endanger Israel, big time.” He noted how Iran “repeatedly threatens to annihilate Israel” but “doesn’t just talk the talk, it walks the walk.”

“[Iran] arms terrorists with thousands of rockets and missiles to be fired at our citizens,” said Netanyahu. “Israel simply cannot afford to let Iran obtain the capability to follow through on its genocidal designs.”
