Netanyahu: Iran Nuke Deal ‘Will Bring War’

Netanyahu, who spoke Tuesday afternoon on a conference call organized by the Jewish Federation of North America (JFNA), urged those on the call to do all they can to defeat the deal and stop the Obama administration from enacting it.“This deal will bring war,” Netanyahu warned. “It will spark a nuclear arms race in the region. And it would feed Iran’s terrorism and aggression that would make war, perhaps the most horrific war of all, far more likely.”

“Oppose this dangerous deal,” Netanyahu urged the audience as he outlined what were described as fatal flaws in the agreement, which will provide Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions relief while temporarily halting its nuclear enrichment program.

Netanyahu explained that rather than inhibit and constrain Iran’s nuclear program, the deal provides Iran with two plausible pathways to a nuclear weapon.

“The nuclear deal with Iran doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb. It actually paves Iran’s path to the bomb,” he said. “Worse, it gives Iran two paths to the bomb.”

“Iran can get to the bomb by keeping the deal or Iran can get to the bomb by violating the deal,” Netanyahu said.

If Iran upholds the deal—a prospect that many critics view as unlikely—it is permitted to keep its “vast and deeply sophisticated” nuclear infrastructure in tact, according to Netanyahu.

Within 10 to 15 years after the deal is implemented, Iran’s nuclear endeavors will receive “full international legitimacy” by global powers, he warned.

By that time, “Iran will be able to produce the enriched uranium for an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons” and be able to do so “very quickly,” Netanyahu said.
