Minister Erdan’s Remarks on Kerry’s Efforts to Reach a Deal with Iran

kerryHomefront Minister Gilad Erdan on Thursday morning 11 Kislev 5774, , made the following remarks at an Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv.

“I was astounded to hear John Kerry’s remarks about why the Prime Minister is criticizing the agreement being formulated in Geneva without waiting for it to be signed. I have not heard such a claim for many years; this is a country that wants to destroy Israel and the conditions that will enable it to carry out its wishes. What do they expect from an Israeli prime minister? Not to cry out when the knife is in the hand, but only when it is across our throat?

“It is only thanks to the discussion about the terms being discussed in Geneva, behind closed doors, that we have received an additional delay of several days and perhaps even an improvement in the terms of the agreement.

“Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif and his cohorts are going around Geneva and it is impossible to wipe the smiles off their faces; even they cannot really believe the ease with which they have succeeded in wrecking the sanctions regime.

“We must not be mistaken – an interim agreement will be a permanent agreement. All those involved in the agreement must understand that the moment Iran becomes a nuclear threshold state an arms race will begin in the Middle East and regional uncertainty will increase.”
