Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says an emerging agreement to ease sanctions on Iran is unacceptable and does nothing to curtain the country’s nuclear program.

“I understand the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva, as well they should, because they got everything and paid nothing,” Netanyahu said Friday, before a meeting in Tel Aviv with Secretary of State John Kerry, the Associated Press reports. Netanyahu’s comments came as Iran is said to be nearing a possible agreement with western powers over its nuclear program and the sanctions crippling its economy.

Negotiators say the talks — between Iran and Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the U.S. — are nearing a deal that would prevent Iran from developing the capability to produce a nuclear weapon, something Iranian leaders say the country is not seeking.

“This is a very bad deal and Israel utterly rejects it,” Netanyahu said. “Israel is not obliged by this agreement and Israel will do everything it needs to do to defend itself and defend the security of its people.”

The new Amazon Kindle Thriller, The Bahrain Protocol, continues to accurately predict a future that we are living in right now; read the snippet below.

DAY 1 – 1:00pm
Tel Aviv, Israel – Council of War
One thousand four hundred kilometers away from Riyadh, deliberations were taking place in Tel Aviv, in a bunker five stores deep under the city. Around a large oval mahogany table, a group of men sat, some in military uniforms, and others in suits. The Prime Minister sat at the head of the table, and behind him was a large screen with satellite pictures of Iran nuclear sites. “Iran now has advanced centrifuges, and they have just announced reaching 20% purity for uranium.” “Gentlemen, they have enough centrifuges to reach 90% purity for the uranium in six weeks, which is all that is needed for an atomic bomb; we cannot wait any longer!” the Prime Minister emphatically stated to his colleagues. Slamming his fist on the table, the Prime Minister growled, “This American President-and the Europeans-have gone soft with the idea that the new President of Iran will negotiate their nuclear technology away; or worse, have accepted the idea of Iran having nuclear weapons, and of somehow containing them”. “We however do not have the advantage of being on the other side of an ocean thousands of kilometers away.” If we do not act, Israel will be open to annihilation within minutes, 24 hours a day.”

“Perhaps if you had not interfered in the last American elections, we would have a stronger friend in the White House.” The Prime Minister’s eyes reddened from this slight from a coalition minister. “What is done is done!” he retorted. “We still have many American friends, and the economic and military aid still comes.” “Yes, but for how long?” asked another minister. “Even the American conservatives have warned us that there is not an endless supply of aid.” “That is precisely why we must act now,” said the Prime Minister fiercely. America has forgotten who her true friends are.” “We must remind her!”

I understand Kerry "quietly left Israel, without taking a farewell pic with Netanyahu". Nice kick to the Israeli's nuts, Kerry!

Here we go again! Like a broken record, Bibi is upto his usual wolf call! The world leaders have now started ignoring his rants because nobody wants the status quo. Iran cannot be sidelined for ever, particularly with so many unsavory Sunni Leaders spreading Wahabism

Netanyahu won't be nominated for a Nobel Peace prize anytime soon so his objections should be duly noted but that is all.

Jesus is Lord........Do you know Him as Lord and Saviour........He is returning to set up His Kingdom, which will last forever.......

Psalm 2:1-5........

2 Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
3 "Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us."
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure

NO MORE WARS! Israel has ICBM nukes and openly threatens Iran, actually campaigns for war against Iran. Israel, not Iran, is the warmonger. Resolution lies with lifting all sanctions and compensating Iran for damages from the $$$ billions we will no longer be giving the Jewish state. American foreign policy must again serve American interests, not the Jewish state's paranoid pursuit of invulnerability, territorial conquest and racist empire in and beyond the Mideast. NO MORE WARS!

People need to understand that Iran has the same problem that we have here.  They have a runaway military-industrial complex, and then there are the Iranians themselves.

Seems to me that the Obama administration is catering to their military-industrial complex.  Why?  Iran is nearly bankrupt.  This isn't even appeasement, it's enabling.

By the way, are there still tin-foil hat wearers who believe the Obama administration is, in any way, pro-Israel?  They did, after all, purposefully create instability and promote radical, Muslim fundamentalism along Israel's periphery.

That's what happens when the administration pursues a radical, drug trafficking agenda with Qatar and Erdogan's Turkey.
