Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lambasted the Obama administration’s provisional Iran deal on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, calling it a bad deal that allowed Iran to pour “billions” into its “terror machine” and “military machine.” (VIDEO: Boehner: ‘Animosity’ Obama Shows Towards Netanyahu Is ‘Reprehensible’)
NETANYAHU: I think this is a bad deal. It leaves Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure. It lifts the sanctions on Iran fairly quickly and enables them to get billions of dollars into their coffers. They’re not going to use it for schools or hospitals or roads; they’re going to use it to pump up their terror machine worldwide and their military machine busy conquering the Middle East now.
Third, it’s a temporary deal. That is, whatever restrictions are placed on Iran’s nuclear program, they’re removed after a few years and Iran will be free to have a vast arsenal with which to ultimately produce many nuclear bombs. I think for the preeminent terrorist state of our time to have a free pass, an easy pass to nuclear weapons endangers Israel, endangers the region, endangers the world, endangers everyone listening to me right now.
