Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a very blunt message to President Barack Obama Thursday following the announcement of a tentative deal with Iran aimed at curbing the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
Netanyahu told the president that the current framework would threaten the survival of Israel, according to the prime minister’s spokesman Mark Regev.
Mark Regev told the Blaze, that Netanyahu said these words to Obama:
“In these fateful days Iran is accelerating the arming of its terror proxies to attack Israel.”
“This deal would legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, bolster Iran’s economy & increase Iran’s aggression & terror.”
“Such a deal would not block Iran’s path to the bomb. It would pave it.”
“It would increase the risks of nuclear proliferation and the risks of a horrific war.”
“The alternative is standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran until a better deal is achieved.”
The White House released a readout of Obama’s call to Netanyahu Thursday night.
Obama told the Israeli leader that the deal represents significant progress toward a solution that prevents the Islamic Republic from obtaining a nuclear weapon and emphasized U.S. commitment to Israel.
