Israel has been carrying out contacts with Arab countries to confer over the nuclear deal signed between world powers and Iran last week, U.S. based Arabic-language Al Hurra reported on Sunday, citing Israeli press reports.

According to the reports, the contacts are strengthening ties and rapprochement between various Arab states and Israel.

Israeli officials declined to comment on the reports, but Ofir Gendelman, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, hinted to the establishment of a united Arab-Israeli front against the Iran deal.

Gendelman pointed out that Netanyahu has stressed on multiple occasions that the Iranian nuclear crisis has presented an opportunity for Israel to partner with its Arab neighbors in facing the common threat.

Netanyahu has also emphasized in previous public statements that Israel does not constitute a threat to its Arab neighbors, and instead should be considered an ally against the Iranian threat.

  • what a double crossing not a mistake, I am sure senator Kerry and the Obama families have a Place at their table and a cot for him and his family and Kerry and his family.

  • “We must be ready to sacrifice all for our country Israel. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must continue to acquire proficiency in defense and display determination and stamina in purpose.” Never surrender – we are fighting for our survival and the alternative is extinction.
    Israel’s mission first and foremost is to take care of the Jewish people and insure their safety and security in Israel. Israel’s obligation is to its Jewish People and not to pacify the world at large. The historical facts are that for thousands of years the world at large has always persecuted the Jewish people and stood idle while millions of Jews are exterminated and persecuted.

    You say that the PM of Israel is NOT right when he says that the agreement with Iran is an ‘historical mistake’.

    But, when the leader of Saudi Arabia affirms the same thing you guys understand that this is TRUE…!
    Correctly, is not it?

    The question is this, will the Israelis be able to avoid detection when they launch their attack? If the US gets advance notice from intelligence Al-Obama will definitely notify the Iranians of the attack, and Obama may even order the US military to interfere with or even shoot down Israeli planes.

  • Don’t forget, this is all about THE MONEY. The 5+ group is looking to thaw the billions of $$ that was frozen. The GDP growth has “gone to sleep” for too long in the US, Russia, Europe and China and stimulus hasn’t done much for growth. They want a boost and the hope is that the Iran trade will create a lift. Unfortunately for Israel and the ME the nuclear deal is only a backdrop and not a priority concern.

      $150 billion is a lot of money, and really a lot for any terrorist group, but for the economies of the USA, EU, Russia, and China it is a drop in the bucket. This is the same order of magnitude of what it will take to bail out Greece.


      You got it 100% right.

    Obama keeps presenting this as deal or war. Israel took out Iraq’s nukes and Syria’s nukes without anything resembling a war. Iran has no allies. There is no way they would take on Israel & the Saudis (who have one of the largest armies in the world) with or without the US.

    Iraq and Syria haven’t rebuilt their nuclear facilities.

    Also, if Obama hadn’t reached out to Iran, they would be destitute by now. He never gave the historically low oil prices a chance to bring Iran to its knees.

    • Yale

      What this deal really does is take sanctions off the table. If the Iranians cheat, there will be no alternatives to letting them do it or attacking.

  • Paul

    There is a basic logical flaw, presented by Obama, and missed by others, regarding the effectiveness of military action to stop Iran’s Nuclear Weapons program.
    Obama said the use of military force would not stop Iran, it could only delay them a few years, because they could start again.
    So ?? What is to stop another attack, a few years later, if they renew their activity ?
    Is only a one-time military option out there ?
    When you are sick, do you only get one shot of medication, and if that is not enough they let you die ?

  • Although I see the deal as on balance a better idea than just letting pandemonium run wild – I am very glad that the deal is having the effect of getting the Arabs together with Israel. It would help in many ways to get Iran to understand that other countries in the area are able to mature and advance – so it will only set an example of something that Iran should aspire to being a part of when feasible. This is preferable instead of allowing Islamic schisming to keep the region held back for no rational reasons.

  • Peter Joffe

    I cannot understand how Obama has managed to Islamify so many of his people in the White House and how he got the other members of the 5+1 to go for Jihad too? Iran is where radical Ismal stared wit the end of the Shar and since then it has become the worlds leading terror country and Obama Loves them. Negotiate with terrorists – no not Obama so he must be one of them?

    • Bryna Weiss

      Your comment is so ridiculous, I just had to reply.

  • Good. But the united states will play the spoil sport. They will aot attack and will not allow others to attack Iran. there is a tacit understanding between Iran and its well wishers who do business with it

  • Edward Rabin

    So maybe some good will come out of a very bad deal.
