Israel's Netanyahu Warns of Iranian Deal 'Fallout'

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly warned U.S. President Barack Obama about the fallout from the Geneva Accord on Iran's nuclear program.

The phone call between Netanyahu and Obama took place on Sunday. A parliament member described the call to an Israeli TV station.

"The prime minister made it clear to the most powerful man on earth that if he intends to stay the most powerful man on earth, it's important to make a change in American policy because the practical result of his current policy is liable to lead him to the same failure that the Americans absorbed in North Korea and Pakistan, and Iran could be next in line," MK Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud-Beiteinu) said.

Netanyahu announced that an Israeli team will be heading to the United States to discuss the Geneva Accord, which he said must dismantle Iran's nuclear capabilities.

In England, Foreign Secretary William Hague defended the agreement to Parliament.

"Mr. Speaker, this agreement means that the elements of Iran's nuclear program that are thought to present the greatest risk cannot make progress during the period of the interim agreement," Hague said.

"In other words if Iran implements the deal in good faith, as it has undertaken to do, it cannot use these routes to move closer toward obtaining a nuclear weapons capability," he said.

The question many have is will Iran deal in good faith after its long track record of violating U.N. resolutions. In his remarks, Hague also warned anybody in the world, including Israel, from undermining the agreement signed in Geneva.

Meanwhile, deep in the Negev Desert, Israel hosted its largest ever aerial exercise. The prescheduled maneuvers, code named "Blue Flag," included combat squadrons from the United States, Greece, Italy, and Israel.

"It's a very good opportunity for us to continue to work on efficiencies, to become more logistically sound, to get more force from point A to point B and how to actually operate together to continue to provide stability within the region. We really appreciate the opportunity," said Captain Bara (first name withheld), U.S. Air Force contingent commander.

"We live in a tough world, a dangerous world," Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Don Shapiro said. "Israel lives in a dangerous neighborhood and we need the best equipped, best trained forces as possible to protect our people and our security. We also need allies and we have great allies here."

When asked about military action in regards to Iran, Shapiro said all options are still on the table.
