In between bouts of angrily shaking his fists at the sky about the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared today that he doesn’t believe his country is bound by the deal in the slightest, and remains free to attack Iran at any moment.
Netanyahu has been insisting a nuclear deal with Iran would mean the destruction of Israel throughout the talks, empty rhetoric during the long period when no one expected the talks to actually lead to any sort of deal. With a deal now not only possible but agreed to, Netanyahu is struggling to get his rhetoric on track.
Israel wasn’t involved in the nuclear deal, and has no obligations under it, so saying they are not bound by it is effectively meaningless. The threats to attack Iran are nothing new, but feel even emptier in the wake of the deal, as it would fuel an enormous international backlash against Israel, even if US hawks are okay with the idea.
Netanyahu’s real problem is that he’s been so alarmist against the deal for so long, and insisted he would never allow it to be signed, that the fact that it finally happened has the rest of the Israeli far-right portraying him as a failure, and Netanyahu’s claims the deal is an historic disaster has put that disaster in his lap.
In the near term, Israel’s strategy is expected to be intense lobbying against the deal in the US Congress. Ultimately, this is likely to continue for as long as it takes them and the State Department to come to terms on a multi-billion dollar arms deal to shut them up.

Netanyahu, this is not about you. Everything does not have to revolve around you. You are an isignificant loudmouth and it's time you just shut up. Don't come crying to us Americans if you do something stupid and expect us to bail you out.
Or are you trying to extract more aid from us through your surrogates in Congress?
A proud American go for it.
your nation is sending new arms to please these zionest criminal terrorist organization.
Now it's Congress chance to show some signs of sovereignty by telling israel, netenyahoo, aicrap et at. to go have intercourse with themselves.
NO WAY….The Zionist are their gravy train.

like a loose savage dog roaming the streets.

Netanyahu's Israel has never been bound with any international deal ,whether the UN partition plan or Camp David or by any promises made to UK or to US.
Netanyahu is reaffirming the tradition .
Actually, the Israelis have been bound through the contracts/agreements they signed though THEY have never felt inclined to be bound. It's kind of like the US Presidential signing statements where the Prez signs the law but then declares that he might have a different opinion of how it relates to his actions. Regarding Israel, It is the rest of the world who has failed to hold them accountable, for whatever unjustifiable reasons.
Best wishes to the people of Iran. Nuttyahoo can (shake his fists) all he want.
This obnoxious, arrogant, freeloader should keep quiet, cash his welfare checks
USG taxpayers provide, and be happy the P5+1 doesn't have the stones to make
his illegal apartheid regime return the land it stole from the Palestinians.
I has been so plesant for the last few weeks not to see or hear Netanyahu but I fear that with the Iran deal – he is back.
It appears that Obama has defied our rulers. He will not be allowed to get away with this act of impudence with out paying a price. Stay tune for a revealed scandal.
Exactly what nuclear control and inspection regime is Israel signatory to?
Well go ahead and "make their day" and don't let us stop you!
Another threat to destroy Iran – routinely and casually made almost every week. Then they cry about obscure, mistranslated statements made by the former PM of Iran to attack military behemoth, nuclear-armed-to-the-teeth Israel. The only ones who can successfully destroy the other one are the Israelis. Everything portrayed in the MSM is half-a***d backwards.
The way to control this guy isn't to offer him yet more arms. It is to stop the delivery of everything from nows. Cut him off, pending good behavior.
So it's OK for him to threaten Iran…
It is OK for him to hold Nukes…
