MK Shelly Yachimovich, a member of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, says that now that the “dangerous and harmful” nuclear deal with Iran has been reached, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must end the public feud with the US administration and stop “hurling horror scenarios, and come to his senses” in order to improve Israel’s standing as the agreement is implemented.
“The Labor Party must not be a partner to the attempts to circumvent the US administration by way of Congress. It has become undoubtedly clear that the bitter confrontation with the Americans was an utter failure that will be taught in history books.”
She calls for cooperation with the US from this point forth in order “to safeguard, with American help, the force of Israeli deterrence.”
