The Isreali ambassador to the UK Mr. Dabiel Taub has expressed concern about the deal signed on Sunday between Tehran and the world powers. He said that the deal would do little to prevent Iran from making a nuclear weapon in the near future.
As a result, he floated the idea of forming alliances between Israel and its antagonist neighbors in a bid to counter the perceived threat being posed by Iran. While speaking to the Independent, Taub asserted that Israel was offended by the signing of the dealing and it views it as dangerous not only to Israel but to the entire world.
“Israel is deeply concerned about the Geneva deal signed on Sunday, we feel that it was not the best thing to do and that is why we have to do something about it. My country is going to initiate efforts of seeking alliances with our neighbors who share the same views with us concerning Iran’s nuclear program” said Taub.
When asked if he was being realistic about Isarel forming an alliance with its neighbors considering the thorny issues between Israel and Palestine, Taub was quick to mention that he believes there are still elements in the Arab world who still view Israel as a formidable partner when it comes to dealing with Iran’s nuclear program.
Besides, Israel last week sent a bunch of security officials to New York to meet with a team from Donald Trump’s side. The two teams are set to discuss a range of issues among them the Israel-Palestinian conflict and Iran’s nuclear program.
This move is also being seen as Israel’s effort to seek support from its traditional allies. Donald Trump is being seen as a close ally of Israel and that is probably why Israel is taking that advantage to engage the U.S in stopping Iran’s nuclear program.
The News about the Geneva accord signed last week did was not received well in Israel. Most Israelis expressed anger terming the deal as a ticking time-bomb. One cabinet minister, Bennett Naftali said that the Geneva accord was a major threat to the security of the Middle East Region. “The deal signed on Sunday is a retrogressive move for the security efforts that we already have in place.
We must do everything possible to prevent Iran from creating a nuclear weapon” said Naftali. Other Israelis also disagreed with the Geneva accord and promised to find ways of countering it.
