Yair Lapid, the former finance minister and head of the opposition Yesh Atid party, said on Friday that Israel’s relationship with the United States is the worst it has been since 1948.

During an appearance at the Open University, Lapid said that the deteriorating relationship between Israel and its most important ally was evident when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to derail the Iran nuclear accord reached between the United States, world powers, and the Islamic Republic.

“The Americans are now saying that we don’t want to do business with the current Israeli government,” said Lapid.
