Joint List lauds deal, pans PM for opposing it

Israel’s Arab party excoriates Netanyahu for standing against an accord with Iran over its nuclear program.

“Netanyahu’s aggressive rhetoric of incitement and hostility against the Iran deal under the pretext of the ‘Iranian threat’ are indicative of his imperialist and colonialist outlook,” a statement by the Joint (Arab) List reads.

“Israel is the only country that continues to refuse to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty,” the statement continues, adding that Israel’s nuclear site should also be subject to inspections.

The statement also praises the nuclear deal as “the victory of the will of the Iranian people in their struggle against the blockade and sanctions imposed on them.”
