International Webcast: Netanyahu Asks American Jews To Oppose Awful Iran Nuclear DealNetanyahu
As we’ve reported, the Iran deal is an awful deal for America and for the world. It has secret side deals, Secretary of State John Kerry has looked like a fool almost the entire time and Iran has publicly stated they are going to “trample America” since the deal terms were agreed to, and more.
It’s no surprise that yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held an international webcast to ask American Jews to use their influence to stop the awful Iranian nuclear deal. You can watch his entire webcast below through his Facebook post. If he doesn’t step up to stop the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world – who will? President Obama? Tell us in the comments below – who do you think is leading better on the Iranian issue – President Obama or Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tried to rally U.S. Jews on Tuesday against the Iranian nuclear deal championed by President Barack Obama and facing review by Congress, saying it risked a catastrophic Middle East war.
In a webcast organized by Jewish groups in North America, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s arguments that the July 14 deal was not enough to curb Iranian nuclear projects with bomb-making potential while bringing Tehran a windfall in sanctions relief that could help fund destabilizing regional conflicts.
With surveys showing American Jewish opinion mixed on a dispute that has strained the U.S.-Israeli alliance, Netanyahu cast his opposition to the Iran deal as non-partisan. He also pushed back against the Obama administration’s counter-argument that the deal was the only way to avoid eventual war with Iran.
“I don’t oppose this deal because I want war. I oppose this deal because I want to prevent war. And this deal will bring war,” he said. “This is a time to stand up and be counted. Oppose this dangerous deal.”
