According to one U.S. senator, the Obama administration is pushing a "fairly anti-Israeli" line as they advocate for a deal with Iran.
After hearing Secretary of State John Kerry make the case for a nuclear deal with Iran, Kirk said, "that it was fairly anti-Israeli that I was supposed to disbelieve everything that the Israelis had just told me. And I don’t. I think the Israelis probably have a pretty good intelligence service."
Kirk also warned that a deal with Iran could lead to nuclear war. "I think today is the day in which I witnessed a feature of nuclear war in the Middle East in the future someday that will be part of our children’s heritage. This administration like Neville Chamberlain is yielding a large and bloody conflict in the Middle East involving Iranian nuclear weapons that will now be part of our children’s future. And the best way to prevent that from happening is to continue sanctions which Secretary Kerry goes on and on about how effective. What I told Bob Menendez was the administration is sitting at a negotiating table that was built by the Congress. Without the Congress having tough sanctions, the Iranians would walk away," Kirk said.
