Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued on Monday to speak out against the nuclear deal signed between world powers and Iran.
Speaking at the beginning of the Likud faction meeting, Netanyahu said that the Iran deal would not distance the prospects of a war in the Middle East, but rather it would advance the chances of war.
He reiterated his concern that Iran would use the influx of money it will receive from sanctions relief to arm its terrorist proxies.
Netanyahu rejected the opinion that the whole world accepts the Iran deal, so it cannot be that bad. He said that many Mideast countries are against the deal and the world has been wrong before.
