Defense Minister Ya'alon: "Iran Agreement Will Provide Iranian Regime with Breathing Space"

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Lappin - Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon warned on Sunday against the approaching nuclear deal with Iran, describing the agreement as "bad and dangerous." "It will provide the Iranian regime with breathing space and international legitimacy. Instead of making things harder for Iran until it stops its nuclear program, the West is allowing it to come back, through the main door, to the family of nations, to be a nuclear threshold state, and to continue to spread terrorism throughout the whole world, including in the countries of the free world, while publicly calling for Israel to be erased from the map." He also said Iran is in the midst of an effort to arm Hizbullah and Hamas, and that Israel "will not allow the transfer of quality weapons to terrorist organizations, chief among them Hizbullah....We will not allow Iran and Hizbullah to set up terrorist infrastructure on our border with Syria."
