Iran vs. Israel = Zero

Netanyahu made one very effective point today.

He said, "How can you expect Israel to trust Iran in any way as long as Iran's clearly stated goal about Israel is annihilation?"

A very fair point.

While I do not agree with Netanyahu's other broad-brush, suspicious views, I think it makes sense for the U.S. to demand that Iran withdraw its clear and public threat to Israel's existence as part of any new nuclear arrangement.

Frankly, I had presumed that this requirement would have been part of any plan. If it was not, it should be now.

And if Iran provides it, Israel should support and be part of the deal.
