Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu characterized the agreement signed with Iran early Sunday morning as a historic mistake.
Directly contrasting US President Barack Obama who praised the agreement as opening a "new path toward a world that is more secure," Netanyahu – speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting -- said the world has become more dangerous as a result.
Iran, according to Netanyahu, received the right to enrich uranium as well as sanction relief in exchange for only cosmetic Iranian concessions.
Netanyahu, who said the deal threatens Israel, reiterated what he has said in the past, that Israel is not obligated by the agreement. He said that Israel would defend itself and not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability.
