The Israeli embassy in Washington contributed its part on Friday to efforts to sway US public opinion against the emerging nuclear agreement with Iran.

On its official Twitter account, the embassy posted an image of a mock front page edition of The New York Times from the future – 2025, to be exact. That is when the so-called "sunset clause" – the reported period of time during  which Iran permits tight inspections of its nuclear installations - in the rumored US-Iran deal is set to expire.

It is Israel's contention that the Iranians will make a dash for the bomb after the period allotted until the sunset clause expires - believed to be between 10 and 15 years.

The image shows the classic template of America's most prestigious newspaper, with an image showing gas prices hovering over $9 a gallon.

"'How We Duped The West,' Iranian Pres. Rouhani Declares," reads one headline.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to deliver an address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday. The premier is likely to lobby lawmakers to oppose any agreement reached between the Obama administration and the Islamic Republic.
