Well, this topic is not included in the agenda of my blog – but let’s use the fact that the search word “nuclear” sometime leads to this blog. You can find in this post one Israeli person’s opinion about the deal.
Recently, many writers in United States claim that the “Israelis” object the new deal with Iran. Some say 70% of the Israelis, some say ALL the Israelis.
Therefore, I wish to let you know that:
– I think that the deal is quite good, and it is much better than no deal.
– All the people I know share the same opinion. You are correct – my friends and colleagues perhaps do not represent the majority of Israel, but the fact that none of them prefers “no deal” instead of the current deal should mean something.
– I believe that without this deal Israel would be in a great danger even in 2015.
– I believe that canceling this deal will put Israel in a great danger.
That’s all. So if someone wants to speak for “all of us”, including my prime minister, please know that many many people do not agree with him. One interesting thing is that generally, most of the “talkbacks” in our online journals, including “Haaretz”, are from the right wing. However, in the online paper Haaretz, the talkbacks in this case are almost united in favour of the deal, and against our prime minister. So please note that I am not the only one who thinks that Netanyahu behavior is destructive for the security of Israel.
