Netanyahu: Israel Not Bound by Iran Deal

(Prime Minister's Office) In response to the signing of the Iranian nuclear deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday: "The world is a much more dangerous place today than it was yesterday. The leading international powers have bet our collective future on a deal with the foremost sponsor of international terrorism. They've gambled that in ten years' time, Iran's terrorist regime will change while removing any incentive for it to do so. In fact, the deal gives Iran every incentive not to change." "In the coming decade, the deal will reward the terrorist regime in Tehran with hundreds of billions of dollars. This cash bonanza will fuel Iran's terrorism worldwide, its aggression in the region and its efforts to destroy Israel, which are ongoing. Amazingly, this bad deal does not require Iran to cease its aggressive behavior in any way." "This deal repeats the mistakes made with North Korea. There, too, we were assured that inspections and verifications would prevent a rogue regime from developing nuclear weapons. And we all know how that ended. The bottom line of this very bad deal is exactly what Iran's President Rouhani said today: 'The international community is removing the sanctions and Iran is keeping its nuclear program.'" "Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction. We will always defend ourselves."
