Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is slamming the Iran nuclear accord. Speaking at the UN, Netanyahu argued that the deal does not block Iran's path to a nuclear weapon and "makes war more likely" in the volatile Middle East. He called it a very bad deal and urged UN delegates to check their enthusiasm at the door. Netanyahu said Tehran is not to be trusted and predicted that Iran will continue to be a leading state sponsor of terrorism.
Netanyahu said Iranian threats to Israel have been met with "deafening silence" at the UN. He issued a warning about the "heavy price of silence." Netanyahu vowed that Israel will not allow Iran into the "nuclear weapons club." He also accused the UN of continuing to be "obsessively hostile" to Israel. Netanyahu called Israel the only true democracy in the Middle East.
