Gosh. It appears Bibi "Bomb Bomb" Netanyahu, AIPAC and Republicans manufactured "hysteria" over the Iran nuclear deal. Who would've thunk:
Benny Gantz was Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces from 2011 until he was succeeded by Gadi Eizenkot this February. He spoke on Friday at the AIPAC-aligned Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He said that he thought a better deal could have been negotiated but nonetheless saw the deal as an important "achievement" in preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon for at least 10 or 15 years. Here are the exact quotes from the JTA ...
“I do agree a better deal could have been reached,” one that more extensively restricted uranium enrichment, Benny Gantz said Friday of the sanctions relief for a nuclear restrictions deal reached in July between Iran and six major powers.
We would offer that a more specific "greatest threat to Israel's future" is the continuance in power of one Bibi "Bomb Bomb" Netanyahu.“But I see the half-full part of the glass,” he said. “I see the achievement of keeping the Iranians, 10-15 years into the future, postponing their having a nuclear capability at the right price.”He also criticized the "hysteria" over the deal and said that the greatest threat to Israel's future comes not from Iran but from internal divisions within Israeli society.
