(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu begged the United States not to sign the new Iran nuclear deal, calling it “dangerous” and “even worse than its predecessor,” the Daily Caller reported.
“The desperate rush to sign this flawed nuclear agreement with Iran is not only absurd, it’s downright dangerous,” he said in a video posted on Twitter. “Yesterday, Iran fired missiles in the vicinity of the American consulate in Iraq.”

Even some of President Joe Biden’s top diplomats are perplexed by the administration’s actions. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said she has found it “hard to understand” the Biden administration’s decision to proceed with the agreement, according to the Washington Times.
“If Iran has a nuclear weapon, its ability to project power into the Middle East and to deter us, our allies and partners is enormous,” Sherman said. “First, we’ve got to make sure they cannot obtain a nuclear weapon.”
China, Russia, and European nations have negotiated the nuclear agreement because they have diplomatic ties with Iran. The Biden administration seems poised to accept a deal that it did not help craft.
The Biden administration has embarked on economic warfare against Russia, yet continues to let Russia direct nuclear negotiations.
“Russia continues to be engaged in those efforts, and it has its own interests in ensuring that Iran is not able to acquire a nuclear weapon,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said, according to CNN.
Netanyahu argued that the new nuclear agreement would equip Iran with a nuclear weapon and provide it more money to conduct terrorist operations.
“In three years time, under this agreement, Iran will be a threshold nuclear state,” he said.
“It will have enough enriched uranium to create dozens and dozens of nuclear bombs, and it will have the ICBMs [Intercontinental ballistic missiles] to deliver them to any place in the United States,” he continued.
