Steinitz says US backing won’t help if Iran gets nukes

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz tells Channel 2 that the US president’s statements of support for Israel “sound good and are pleasing,” but added that “no assistance and no backing up will help if Iran acquires nuclear weapons.”

Obama told New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman in a video interview on Sunday that he would consider it a “fundamental failure” of his presidency if Israel emerges weakened from an agreement between world powers and Iran.
