Iran Nuclear deal – Netanyahu not happy

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has spoken to US President Barack Obama and expressed Israel’s strong opposition to the framework agreement with Iran which poses a grave danger to Israel, the region and the world.

Prime Minister Netanyahu:

“A deal based on this framework would threaten the survival of Israel.

Just two days ago, Iran said that ‘The destruction of Israel is non-negotiable,’ and in these fateful days Iran is accelerating the arming of its terror proxies to attack Israel.

This deal would legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, bolster Iran’s economy, and increase Iran’s aggression and terror throughout the Middle East and beyond.

Such a deal would not block Iran’s path to the bomb.  It would pave it.

It would increase the risks of nuclear proliferation in the region and the risks of a horrific war.

The alternative is standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran until a better deal is achieved.”

However, New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Murray McCully expressed a different in a statement released this morning:

“Foreign Minister Murray McCully today welcomed news that an agreement has been reached which lays out parameters for a deal on Iran’s nuclear programme.

“The announcement from the P5+1 (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) and Iran is a significant development, which opens the way for a comprehensive agreement,” Mr McCully says.

“A final agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme will have a positive impact on regional stability in the Middle East, and give scope for the further expansion of New Zealand’s relations with Iran.

“New Zealand fully supports the P5+1 process, and commends the leadership being shown by all parties at this latest round of talks.

“While the negotiations are complex, the agreement which has been reached in Lausanne provides a roadmap through and demonstrates the goodwill on all sides. We hope this momentum can now be converted into comprehensive agreement by the 30 June,” Mr McCully says.

    Not to worry.
    Iran’s spiritual leader,Ayatollah Khamenei, will get this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
    President Obama will be the keynote orator at the presentation ceremony.
    President Obama will get the Sydney Peace Prize.
    Associate-Professor Jake Lynch will be the keynote speaker at that ceremony.
    Prior to the ceremony, a guard of honour, led by Mr Bob Carr, will welcome the peace-lovers, and the Sydney University anti-Israel troupe, “The Megaphones,” will sing “Anthem to Peace and Justice.”
