Former prime minister Naftali Bennett, who now holds the post of alternate premier, issues what he describes as a last-minute appeal to US President Joe Biden not to sign a renewed Iran nuclear deal.

“This deal will pipe around a quarter trillion dollars to the coffers of the Iranian terror regime and its regional arms, and allow Iran to develop, affix and operate centrifuges almost without limit in about two years,” Bennett says in a statement.

He says that previously, “even when things appeared close,” Israel convinced the White House “not to surrender to Iranian demands,” and expresses hope it will again do the same.

“Either way, the State of Israel isn’t a party to the deal, isn’t limited by any authority of the agreement being formed, and will act with all means to prevent progress in the Iranian nuclear program.”
