Kerry Threatens Israel with Isolation if They Mess With Their Iran Nuclear Deal
US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Friday that should Congress vote against the Iranian nuclear deal signed last week in Vienna, Israel could find itself more isolated in the international arena and “more blamed.”
“I fear that what could happen is that, if Congress were to overturn it, our friends in Israel could actually wind up being more isolated. And more blamed. And we would lose Europe and China and Russia with respect to whatever military action we might have to take. Because we will have turned our backs on a very legitimate program that allows us to put their program to the test over the next few years,” Kerry told an audience at the Council of Foreign Relations in New York.
Earlier Friday, Kerry warned that any future Israeli military action against Iran over its nuclear program would be an “enormous mistake.”
In Israel, politicians across the spectrum slammed the deal as soon as it was announced.
Opposition leader Isaac Herzog, head of the Zionist Union party, said he would work with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling coalition to thwart the Iran nuclear deal.
“Now Iran is out of the cage and will become a regional tiger,” Herzog said last week, calling the agreement “a complex challenge that mandates cooperation on understanding the threat and on finding solutions.”
JOHN KERRY NEEDS TO KNOW THAT IF WE CONTINUE WITH THIS IRAN DEAL, THE WORLD WILL BE DESTROYED AND ISOLATED! IRAN ONLY WANTS ONE THING: DEATH TO AMERICA AND ISRAEL! NOTHING ELSE MATTERS FOR THEM!
Netanyahu earlier this week urged US lawmakers to combat Iranian aggression by rejecting the nuclear deal.
