In Israel: "The Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, on Sunday called the proposed nuclear agreement with Iran "an exceedingly bad deal", as he intensified his campaign to convince world powers to toughen terms ahead of fresh negotiations this week."To give the most dangerous regime of the 21st century the world's most dangerous weapons is a big, big mistake," he told CNN.
Netanyahu said the deal would leave Iran with 18,000 centrifuges to enrich uranium. "They are not giving up one centrifuge, not one," he said. "We've been around for about 4,000 years, the Jewish people, and we are not about to let ayatollahs armed with nuclear weapons threaten that," he said. He said it was "no secret" that many Arab leaders held the same opinion." In Saudi Arabia: Mohammad bin Nawwaf, the Saudi ambassador to Britain, warned at the weekend that the kingdom would not "sit idly by" if Iran acquired a nuclear weapon. According to the British Guardian, diplomats predict that the Saudis and their Gulf neighbors, especially the United Arab Emirates, may seek to obtain security guarantees from the U.S. in the event of a final agreement with Iran. Saudi Arabia has long signaled that it would also seek to acquire nuclear weapons – most likely from Pakistan – if Iran had them, noted the newspaper.
Israel, of course, has been down this road before. Israel bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981's Operation Opera and a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007's Operation Orchard. In both strikes, Israel bombed nuclear reactors that had been build to provide nuclear materials for weaponization. In both instances, Israel acted on itsown to protect its national security interests. If Israel believes that their allies are falling asleep on the switch and that Iran is continuing with its nuclear programs, I have little doubt that Israel will take matters into its own hands and attack the Iranian nuclear program unilaterally.
