Oh my: Israeli Left blasts impending Iran nuke deal

No, it's not just Netanyahu and the Right who are the Israelis who oppose Obama-Kerry's surrender to Iran.
And it's not just about nukes. Consider what might happen if the US agrees to lift the arms embargo on Iran.
Rather than promoting stability, greater access to advanced missiles, artillery, and combat vehicles could empower a range of Iranian proxy forces, partners and terrorist groups – from Lebanese Hezbollah to the Syrian National Defense Forces (a sectarian paramilitary organization tantamount to Iran’s Basij) to Palestinian Hamas— which remain a threat to U.S. interests and to our regional allies, most notably Israel. These forces could endanger U.S. personnel at regional diplomatic and military facilities and make it more difficult for Washington to secure a political solution in Syria and Iraq, let alone between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Increased arms flowing into Hezbollah’s hands and like-minded groups in the Palestinian territories endanger the security of Israel.” Further equipping and training of Yemen's Houthis could position this group to threaten global trade through the Suez Canal if they are able to both establish a naval presence from the Red Sea port of Hodeida and further south at the Mandeb Strait. Increased IRGC armed shipments to the Houthis could lead to more stand-offs in the Gulf of Aden with the U.S. Navy. 
Lifting the arms embargo on Iran could spell the end of the Israeli Left's dream of a 'Palestinian state' threatening Israel and could result in an arms windfall to Hamas and Hezbullah that would leave us on full-time war alert. Even Israel's Left gets that.

But nothing is more important than Obama and Kerry getting their Nobel Prizes!

I guess they won't be getting any more free subscriptions to Haaretz.
