President Barack Obama said Wednesday that every country that has commented on the Iran nuclear deal has supported it — except for Israel. Obama singled out Israel’s government in a speech about the deal at American University. He described opponents of the deal as outliers and noted that the deal has support from non-proliferation experts and former ambassadors from both political parties.
“A nuclear armed Iran is far more dangerous to Israel, to America, and to the world than an Iran that benefits from sanctions relief,” said the president. “I recognize that prime minister Netanyahu disagrees, disagrees strongly. I do not doubt his sincerity, but I believe he is wrong. I believe the facts support this deal.”
