Nuclear negotiations between Iran and the West have raised deep concerns in Israel that the talks are merely an Iranian ploy to buy time and dupe the West, and will lead to no tangible results.
At the start of today’s cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said he was worried “by the fact that Iran actually believes it will realize its plan to become a nuclear threshold state with untouched capabilities to enrich uranium and develop intercontinental ballistic missiles, which it is continuing to do uninterrupted.”
“The combination of enrichment, weapons and launch capabilities means that Iran is getting everything without giving almost anything,” Netanyahu said. “A permanent agreement must not perpetuate this situation.”

I hope that world powers will stand firm in the demand to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear threshold state.” Read more at ISRAEL HAYOM.
