Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett painted a bleak picture of what may come to pass if world powers sign a “bad deal” with Iran, in negotiations now ongoing over the country’s nuclear program.
Writing in a Facebook post, Bennett warned of nuclear strikes, and Islamic terror targeting New York, Rome or Tel Aviv.
“Years from now, when an Islamic terrorist blows up a suitcase in New York, or when Iran launches a nuclear missile at Rome or Tel Aviv, it will have happened only because a Bad Deal was made during these defining moments,” he said.
“The Free World stands before a fork in the road with aÂ clear choice: Either stand strong and insist Iran dismantles its nuclear-weapons program, or surrender, cave in and allow Iran to retain its 18,500 centrifuges,” Bennett explained.
“It would be dangerous to lift the sanctions and accept a deal which allows Iran to retain its entire uranium-production line,” he said. “It would be dangerous because Iran would, a year, two or three from now, just turn everything back on and obtain a nuclear weapon before the world can do anything to stop it.”
“These critical days in November will be remembered for years to come,” he warned.
His comments echoed those of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu who blasted the deal that was reportedly on the table in the negotiations between Iran and world powers.
The deal under discussion called “for Iran to suspend most of its uranium enrichment for six months in exchange for a temporary easing of sanctions,” The Washington Post reported.
