Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is pushing for an all-out effort to prevent what he is calling a "a very bad deal," speaking of the almost signed agreement between Western powers and Iran over Iran's nuclear program.  The right-wing Israeli P.M. worked the American Sunday morning news talk show circuit, denouncing the deal that would cap Iran's nuclear capacity and open up the program to U.N. anti-proliferation inspectors.  The agreement fail to materialize at the 11th hour when France decided the current deal gives Tehran too much lead way.

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, alluding to criticism of the U.S. approach in Geneva, said on U.S. television: "We are not blind, and I don't think we're stupid. I think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe."

Israel has always made it clear that Iran is their number one enemy, even ahead of the Palestinians.  An Iran that is once again a fully function member of the world community, poses a threat to Israeli power in the region.  Iran  has been marginalized since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

But the fact that any deal might be close is signal of the changing of the times, plus Iran's willingness to end the crippling sanctions it continues to face.  Many analysts believe Iran is opening the diplomatic windows to a nuclear deal in order to alleviate sanctions Iranian oil and cut it off from the world banking system.
