REUTERS/Yiannis Kourtoglou/Pool Jerusalem – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday hailed U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from an international nuclear agreement with Iran, saying it had been a “recipe for disaster”.

    The Israeli leader, who long called for the deal between Western powers and Iran to be fixed or canceled, spoke moments after Trump announced his decision in a speech at the White House.

    “… Israel thinks that President Trump made an historic move, and this is why Israel thanks President Trump for his courageous leadership, his commitment to confront the terrorist regime in Tehran, and his commitment to ensure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, not today, not in a decade, not ever,” Netanyahu said in a brief televised address.

    Trump said he was reimposing economic sanctions on Iran and pulling the U.S. out of the 2015 international agreement aimed at stopping Tehran from obtaining a nuclear bomb. The decision is likely to raise the risk of conflict in the Middle East.

    In his announcement, Trump cited Israel’s publication last week of what it said was a trove of seized, secret Iranian documents showing Tehran had a past nuclear weapons program.

    Most of that purported evidence dated to the period before the 2015 accord was signed, although Netanyahu said Iran had also kept important files on nuclear technology since then and continued adding to its “nuclear weapons knowledge”.

    Iran dismissed the Israeli allegations as Netanyahu “crying wolf”.

    1. Lol just turned on FoX, CNN, then MSNBC at the top of the hour to see what their lead story would be..Fox was covering the Iran deal pullout, as you would imagine it’s the most important news item of the day. And CNN and MSNBC would speaking about…you guessed it, Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen! I kid you not. So is it any wonder a huge majority of Americans don’t trust the mainstream press and feel their agenda is Trump hate 24/7? Fox is in the lead by huge numbers in ratings and that’s because that’s the only place these days you can get hornets reporting.
