Israeli official: Biden returning to nuclear deal ‘will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran’

Joe Biden re-entering the JCPOA (Iran Nuclear Deal) guarantees war in the Middle East. Israel will not allow Iran to go nuclear. You can take that to the bank. When the Israelis say “Never Again” they mean it.

Israeli official: Biden returning to nuclear deal ‘will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran’

By Sara Carter, November 05, 2020

Officials within Israel’s Likud party, a centre-right to right-wing political party in Israel, are apprehensive about a possible victory of former Vice President Joe Biden in the US presidential election, according to The Times of Israel Thursday.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has a strong relationship with the Republican incumbent Donald Trump.

On Sunday, Netanyahu commended Trump’s Middle-east policies.

The prime minister told reporters that U.S. bipartisan support has been “one of the foundations of the American-Israeli alliance.” He went on to say “that alliance has never been stronger” and praised steps taken by Trump in favor of Israel.

Likud officials are worried that a Biden administration will abandon the Trump peace plan between Israel and Palestinian.

Though accepted by the Netanyahu government, the peace plan was rejected by the Palestinians.

Biden has opposed Israel’s unilateral efforts to annex Palestinian territory in the West Bank, and said he would reinstate the funding and diplomatic relations with Palestinians cut by Trump.

Biden also has said he would attempt to restore the 2015 Iran nuclear deal–provided Iran were to return to its commitments as well.

After taking office, Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, winning praise from Netanyahu but impairing relations between the U.S. and Iran.

Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister, has indicated to CBS News that the Islamic Republic’s leadership would prefer Joe Biden win the U.S. election.

Zarif said that “the statements by the Biden camp have been more promising, but we will have to wait and see.”

He added that it’s not what the new administration says during the campaign that counts, but what it does in office.
