Israel is concerned that U.S. President Barack Obama will reach a bad nuclear deal with Iran ahead of the midterm elections in November, an Israeli official told Reuters on Wednesday.
“We would be happy to see July 20 pass without a deal,” an Israeli government adviser told the news agency, referring to the deadline by which Iran and the West are aiming to reach a permanent deal on Iran’s disputed nuclear program.
The official added that there was worry in Israel that Obama, facing possible gains by Republican rivals in the midterm elections, might be tempted to accommodate Iran now.
I wonder why they think a phony deal with Iran would be well-received by anybody but diehard Democrat Obama fanbois, and he’s already got them locked up anyway.
I think he’s far more likely to do a deal simply because he hates Israel.
