Israel and Saudi Arabia present united front over Iran deal

The nuclear deal with Iran caused fury in Israel and consternation around the region at the likely increase in influence and resources of a newly enriched Iran.

Most telling was the loudest expression of support. “I am happy that the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved a great victory by reaching an agreement,” President Bashar al-Assad of Syria said in a message to his Iranian opposite number, Hassan Rouhani.

“In the name of the Syrian people, I congratulate you and the people of Iran on this historic achievement.”

    Saudis are the ‘rational actors’ that Obama keeps telling us the NutMullahs in Iran are supposed to be. They don’t like the Israelis but they don’t have to.

    That isn’t the only united front this has generated. Israel’s opposition leader Isaac Herzog has joined Netanyahu in opposing the deal. This is the same man that Obama tried to throw the Israeli election in his favor.
