As Netanyahu pointed out in Washington, the conclusion of the nuclear negotiations must be that Iran stops attacking other countries, renounces terror and ceases threatening the Jewish state of Israel with annihilation. If all three conditions are not met, there can be no deal. Because no deal is better than a bad deal.

Most people think that the recent fracas between Jerusalem and Washington is about Iran. They are wrong. Israel has what it takes to turn much of Iran into a radioactive desert.

Iran is nuclear capable. If Iran's leaders decided they wanted a nuclear bomb, they could build one. But Iran does not have a bomb now. And there is much confusion -- some of it intentionally spread -- about how long it would take Iran to build a weapon.
