Israel blasts Iran - P 5+1 deal

With a delegation of the P 5+1 heading here to try to convince the Prime Minister to hold off on bombing Iran, the Israeli government immediately blasted the deal that was signed in Geneva a few hours ago.
"This is a bad deal. It grants Iran exactly what it wanted - both a significant easing in sanctions and preservation of the most significant parts of its nuclear program," an official in Netanyahu's office said.
"You stand and shout out until you're blue in the face, and you try to understand why they're not listening. The world wanted an agreement," Finance Minister Yair Lapid, a member of Netanyahu's security cabinet, told Israel's Army Radio.
"We also said that a diplomatic accord would be good.
A diplomatic accord is certainly better than war, a diplomatic accord is better than a situation of permanent confrontation - just not this agreement."
Lapid said that in the Israel had to pore over the deal: "For example, we still don't understand exactly what stepping up the monitoring (on Iran's facilities) means. This is a detailed matter. God really is in the small details."
Economic Minister Naftali Bennett, another security cabinet member, told Army Radio in a separate interview: "Israel does not see itself as bound by this bad, this very bad agreement that has been signed."
Neither minister would be drawn on how Israel might respond. Israel, which is widely assumed to have the Middle East's sole atomic arsenal, sees a mortal menace in a nuclear-armed Iran and has at times threatened to launch a preemptive war against its arch-foe.
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the Geneva deal required the Netanyahu government to conduct a strategic review.
Asked on Israel Radio whether he felt cheated by the United States for its role in the deal, Lieberman said: "Heaven forbid."
Nah, how can we feel cheated? Any Israeli who has had his eyes open for the last five years knows that Hussein Obama has a visceral hated for the Jewish state and is hoping that Iran will do what he would never dare to do. What a gutless piece of dirt Obama is. He will join Neville Chamberlain in the dustbins of history.

Looks like Obama is more worried about Israel bombing Iran, than Iran getting the bomb.

Hopefully, Israel/Netanyahu will not blink like Hillary did during the primaries before the 2008 US presidential elections: Her "blink" got the US Obama.

May Netanyahu and whoever else meets with Lurch not show their hand. This is truly high-stakes poker, now. Very high.
