Israeli Prime Minister Launches Campagin Against Nuclear Deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a campaign to mobilise Jewish Americans against the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers championed by President Barack Obama, which is facing review by the US Congress.

In a webcast organised by Jewish groups in North America, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s arguments that the July 14 deal was not enough to curb Iranian nuclear projects with bomb-making potential, arguing that a windfall in sanctions relief could help Tehran finance destabilising regional conflicts.

With surveys showing American Jewish opinion mixed on a dispute that has strained the US-Israeli alliance, Netanyahu cast his opposition to the Iran deal as non-partisan.

He also pushed back against the Obama administration’s counter-argument that the deal was the only way to avoid eventual war with Iran.
