‘Iran deal does not block Iran’s path to nuclear weapons’

Israel National News reports: “Israel’s Ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, spoke on Sunday at the AIPAC Policy Conference.

‘It’s so significant in historical terms because 52 years ago we acquired that territory in a defensive war.

Asked by i24NEWS anchor Michelle Makori what Israel is looking to achieve in Syria, the Ambassador replied, ‘We want Iran out.’

The reason we fought against it, the reason why Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu came and spoke to Congress against it, was because that deal does not block Iran’s path. It paves it. The decision by President Trump to walk away is a first step. We have to get others to walk away as well,’ said Dermer…”
