One of the biggest blunders this century.
‘Iran have been given a licence to kill’: Netanyahu blasts ‘historic mistake’ of agreeing Tehran nuclear deal as Israeli ministers condemn the ‘surrender by the West to the axis of evil’
Under the accord, sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing long-term curbs on a nuclear programme that the West has suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb. The European Union called it a ‘sign of hope for the entire world’, while President Barack Obama insisted the deal meant ‘every pathway to a nuclear weapon is cut off’.
But this was angrily rejected by Israel, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (inset) branding the deal ‘a bad mistake of historic proportions’. He said: ‘Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world. Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons.’
