US okays Iran continuing to build Arak plutonium reactor

The Hebrew-language daily Maariv reports that even after 'downgrading' its nuclear capabilities (if that ever happens) as required by the P 5+1 agreement, Iran will be 36 days from a nuclear weapon, AND that the United States has okayed Iran continuing to build the plutonium reactor at Arak.
Israeli experts have estimated that Tehran's schedule for nuclear enrichment has only been delayed for up to two weeks, according to the report, less than one week after a deal has been reached between Western powers and the Iranian government regarding the nuclear program.
The estimate may confirm Netanyahu's condemnation of the deal - which is an interim agreement which lifts economic sanctions for a slowing, but not stopping, of Iran's nuclear production - as a "historic mistake." 
The concern in Israel is that Iran will wait for an international crisis, or an internal crisis in the United States, as a prime opportunity to drop a nuclear bomb on its enemies. The deal provides international support for Iran's nuclear program by allowing it to continue in any capacity - thus making the global community powerless to stop a nuclear Iran on legal grounds. 
The report states that Iran is likely to fire up their 18,000 centrifuges and produce a nuclear bomb in the event that the Islamic Republic sees the golden opportunity to use nuclear warfare - deal or no deal. A nuclear warhead would then be ready in as little as 36 days. 
Meanwhile, the US has declared their support for the Iranian to "continue building" their nuclear reactor in Arak. The support is based on terms which prevent Tehran from producing nuclear fuel, or using the heavy water reactor; however, these cannot be constantly monitored, experts claim.
The report also says that Iran does not have the capability of reducing the enrichment level of its already enriched uranium.

What could go wrong?
