Israel Upset With Kerry's "Very Bad Deal"

"I met Secretary Kerry right before he leaves to Geneva. 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." -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

I am sure Secretary Kerry and President Obama will simply shirk-off the Prime Minister's legitimate concerns over this current strategy coming out of the Oval Office of cutting back on Iranian sanctions without any capitulation on the part of Iran's nuclear ambitions. The Obama Administration has never been open to constructive criticism from anyone outside their very closed, tightly-knit ranks. If this deal moves forward unaltered, it will eventually cost the United States, Israel and everyone living in that region of the world a very high cost and leave Iran laughing in derision at the toothless power of the West.
