Speaking on “Fox & Friends,” the former longtime Israeli premier said the deal is “even worse” than the previous one signed in 2015 (known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA) because the Iranians are now closer to a bomb now than they were in then, and have enhanced uranium-enrichment capabilities.

The new agreement “does not ask them to change their behaviour, to stop calling for the destruction of Israel, to stop bombing the neighbouring countries like Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states,” he noted.

He reiterated that a nuclear Iran threatens not only Israel but also the United States and the world.

“If you do not have a credible military threat against Iran, you essentially have nothing,” he said.
