Netanyahu slams "rush to accommodate" Iran
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the international community's "rush to accommodate" Iran on Monday, describing an easing of sanctions against the country as dangerous "political theatre."
Netanyahu, after talks with Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta said that there is a rush to accommodate Iran as if it has changed anything in its policies, and that the Iranian regime, though it smiles, continues to butcher people in Syria and sponsor terrorism.
While Letta said he was "cautiously hopeful" negotiations to curb Iran's nuclear programme would be successful, Netanyahu restated his firm opposition to an international deal with Israel's arch-foe.
