Netanyahu Criticizes Iran Deal, Says Israel Will "Act Against Every Threat"

Today marks the deadline for the Iranian nuclear agreement currently being worked on in Switzerland. As world powers tried to finalize a framework, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued to warn the world of making a bad deal with the Islamic Republic, and said that Israel would act against any threat:

As negotiators in Lausanne, Switzerland representing world powers worked to finalize a deal with Iran over its nuclear program on Monday morning, Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu issued yet another harsh admonition, this time wowing that Israel “we will continue to act against every threat.”

Netanyahu also pointed out that even as the discussions are held, Iran backed Houthi rebels are gaining ground against the pro-Western leadership in Yemen.

“One cannot understand that when forces supported by Iran continue to conquer more ground in Yemen, in Lausanne they are closing their eyes to this aggression,” Netanyahu said, at a ceremony to honor outstanding Prime Minister’s Office employees. ”But we are not closing our eyes and we will continue to act against every threat in every generation, certainly in this generation.”

Netanyahu criticized the terms of the deal under discussion as amounting to a prize for Iranian belligerence.

“The agreement being formulated in Lausanne sends a message that there is no price for aggression and on the contrary – that Iran’s aggression is to be rewarded,” he said. “The moderate and responsible countries in the region, especially Israel and also many other countries, will be the first to be hurt by this agreement.”
