There is no daylight among Israel’s leaders and especially between Israel’s governing coalition and its opposition with regard to the Iran nuclear deal. Israelis across the political spectrum oppose this bad deal.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who voiced harsh opposition to the deal and criticized the world powers for their failure to properly contend with the Iranian threat, met Tuesday evening with opposition chairman MK Isaac Herzog and updated him on the briefings that were given at the Security Cabinet regarding the implications of the agreement.

MK Herzog restated his own opposition to the “bad agreement.” He added that he would do his utmost on behalf of the security of the State of Israel in the new situation that has been created.

Netanyahu told Herzog that the fact that there is agreement between the coalition and the opposition in Israel regarding the danger that this agreement poses to Israel’s security is especially important at this time. He added that it is important to show the world a united front on this issue, which is linked to Israel’s most significant national interest.
