Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with US President Barack Obama on Tuesday evening and expressed  what Israel's worries were after a deal was reached between the world powers and Iran on its nuclear program. 

Netanyahu said that he told Obama that the deal is dangerous for two central reasons.

First, Netanyahu said, the deal allows Iran to obtain nuclear weapons if it abides by the deal and waits 10-15 years, or if it breaches the deal before that period expires.

Second, it will allow hundreds of billions of dollars to flow to what Netanyahu called Iran's "terror and war machine that threatens Israel and the entire world."
