US Rejects Israeli PM’s Criticism Of Iran Nuclear Talks


Few things are more predictable than Israeli officials taking time out of their busy schedule to complain about Iran, with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett going in hard in condemning Iran’s nuclear talks lately.

“After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate.” Ez. 38:8 NIV

Officials say they are in contact with Israel on a daily basis, consulting on the process. Israeli officials are playing up the idea that the deal is regionally dangerous.

US interest would be in Israel keeping its mouth shut on the matter.
