Netanyahu: ‘This Is a Bad Deal–a Very, Very Bad Deal’

The Weekly Standard – by Daniel Harper

A very unusual statement from the Israel prime minister on the eve of a possible nuclear detail between the U.S. and Iran:

“I met Secretary Kerry right before he leaves to Geneva,” said Netanyhau. “I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal. That the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge. But the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran for the first time after many years. Iran gets everything that it wanted at this stage and it pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal–a very, very bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community.”

Robert Zarate of the Foreign Policy Initiative explains how the proposed deal is full of concessions toward Iran:

The potential package of Iranian concessions could reportedly include:

(1)  Partially Increased Nuclear Transparency:  somewhat increased inspection and monitoring of Iranian nuclear material, equipment, and facilities by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), but less than enhanced measures authorized by the so-called “Additional Protocol” agreement that Iran has refused so far to ratify.

(2)  Freeze on Medium Enriched Uranium: a freeze on Iran’s production of uranium enriched to 20-percent (sometimes called “medium enriched uranium” or MEU), and conversion of Iran’s stockpile of 20-percent MEU into harder-to-enrich reactor fuel plates.

(3)  Numerical Limits on Centrifuges to Enrich Uranium:  limits on the number of Iran’s actively-enriching first-generation centrifuges, and a delay on the use of Iran’s installed and more advanced second-generation centrifuges.

(4)  Delayed Start-Up of the Plutonium-Producing Heavy Water Reactor:  deferral on starting up and operating Arak, a heavy water reactor capable of producing spent nuclear fuel containing plutonium that is very well-suited for use in a nuclear weapon.

Zarate explains here why it’s a bad deal.

  1. Kerry has sold his soul to the devil in the white house, so he will definitely do anything he can to help with the destruction of Israel and America.

  2. Best thing Kerry has ever done! Screw this ZIONIST pig BIBI! They are not the CHOSEN people! IRAN has never invaded a country! But Israel killed 35+ US soldiers on the US Liberty! The reason this country has gone to hell ” AIPAC”…….. put all AIPAC in jail. ZIONISTt liars!

  3. Obama screwed Netanyahu. This country is in deep …. deep …. deep …. doo-doo now! America has come a little closer today to death and destruction raining down on the U.S. mainland. Take the chess board away from these insane, pathological, satanic leaders!!!
    . . .

  4. The lives of a few Jews in Israel is not worth the price of passing up an opportunity for peace with Iran. Israel is never…NEVER….going to be satisfied with any agreement that doesn’t leave them as total rulers of the Middle East. Why should 6 million Jews dominate and rule over 300 million Muslims. America once had good relations with the Arab/Muslim World. With America’s unlimited and total support of Israel we have made ourselves vulnerable and have lost all credibility as a fair and even handed World power.
