Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said it best. He called the deal a “bad mistake of historic proportions,” Todd Starnes of Fox News reports.
“Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons. Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted,” Netanyahu said. “Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world.”
Who in their right mind would negotiate in good faith with an enemy who wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth and whose citizens are marching in the streets shouting death to America?
Lost in this diplomatic debacle is the fate of four Americans held hostage by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
One of those men is Saeed Abedini — an Idaho pastor — thrown in prison because of his Christian faith. For nearly three years he has been tortured at the hands of his Muslim captors.
