It’s never a secret that the world has been against Iran nuclear ambitions with Israel on the forefront due to the threat posed. The recent deal (Geneva deal) did little to assure the Israelis of a stable society. According to Ambassador Daniel Taub, Israel is looking forward to forging new alliances with longtime enemies from the Middle –East with the aim of stopping the development of nuclear weaponry in Iran.
While speaking to The Independent, Daniel Taub said that it was the view of Israel that the deal between Iran and world powers would do nothing to contain the threat. Also, the terms of the agreement would not slow Iran’s progress in the development of the nuclear weapons.
While maintaining old allies and adding more pressure, Israel is looking to create more radicle alliances that have previously been unthought-of.
Citing the strip from Tehran to Damascus and on to Gaza, Daniel said that Israel was not alone in its fears. Further, he said that the current development in their regions warranted the states to put aside their long-standing differences and unite for the sake of the future generations.
He believes that if Iran acquires a nuclear warhead, the destruction of cities become imminent. The blame for such attacks and destruction would lie solely on the Geneva agreement.
The Geneva deal saw a lift of sanctions which had previously been subjected to Iran. The sanctions were lifted under the condition that Iran would allow UN inspectors and give them greater access to their developments. On the other hand, they would also give guarantees on uranium enrichment. Read more: Daniel Taub | LinkedIn and Daniel Taub | Ideamench
According to Daniel Taub, those commitments mentioned nothing about their ambitions and ability to acquire a warhead. It left out equipment and facilities that were previously used in the development of the weapons. It touched nothing in their military, and as a result, six months into the agreement, Iran might have managed to make progress in its nuclear development.
Taub continues and says that a day after the signing, there were two different interpretations from the two parties. Iran insists that they hold the rights to enrich uranium while the superpowers disagree. With that in mind, Daniel Taub says it’s impossible to agree when it comes to practice.
After the agreement came to effect, Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel) and President Barrack Obama shared a moment of disagreement through a phone call. According to the Prime Minister, the deal had contributed to making the world a more dangerous place.
