Mossad chief: Nuclear deal strategic disaster for 'Israel'
Israeli media report a warning by the chief of the Israeli Mossad that the crystallized nuclear agreement is "bad" for "Israel" and they should prepare for the deal's expiration date and act to stop Iran.
Israeli media reported Thursday that the Israeli Mossad chief David Barnea warned that the crystallized nuclear agreement was "bad", stressing that "the only beneficiary of it will be Iran."
Israel Hayom newspaper said that Barnea said in closed talks held yesterday, that "the United States and Iran are determined to reach an agreement that is estimated to be signed in the coming days."
According to the newspaper, the Mossad chief said, "The discussion between the two parties revolves around the small differences that will be resolved. I don't see anything that would stop the agreement."
Barnea considered that "Iran will gain hundreds of billions as a result of the lifting of sanctions, and it will pay a very small price in the form of handing over the uranium it has stockpiled and restoring oversight of its nuclear facilities."
The newspaper noted that "the Americans gave up some initial demands as part of the crystallized agreement, including Iran's demands to provide answers to the issue of open investigation files (the International Atomic Energy Agency's investigation files)," adding that Iran "will benefit from all the advantages of the agreement and will never provide answers because it would have no reason to do so."
In this regard, Barnea said, "What will happen is that the files will remain open."
The newspaper pointed out that "the Mossad chief made clear during the talks that Israel is not bound by the agreement and will continue to work against Iran in any way possible to thwart its aggressive intentions," adding, "Besides, we must also prepare for the expiration date of the agreement, and be ready to act to stop Iran."
According to the newspaper, Barnea concluded by saying that "the message that Iran received is that it can continue to mock everyone, and this is what it will do."
For its part, Channel 12 quoted the Mossad chief as saying in a series of internal meetings that "the agreement is very bad for Israel, yet, a strategic disaster."
Israeli media quoted the former head of the National Security Council, Major General (Reserve) Yaakov Amidror, as saying, "the Americans had deceived us in the previous nuclear agreement," stressing that the US "acts in accordance with its interests."

Israeli media cited, on Tuesday, a security source revealing that "the United States of America has relinquished all its demands to Iran." The source explains that "the assessment is that at this stage the crystallized agreement cannot be stopped," and that "Tehran got the dream deal."
Israeli media reported a few days ago, quoting political sources, that "Iran is close to signing the nuclear deal with major powers."
The political sources stated that "Israel perceives the present deal as a bad one," and pointed out that it is "preparing for various scenarios."
Amir Bohbot, a military affairs commentator for the Israeli Wallah website, said that "Israel will not sit in the audience amid the developments in the negotiations between Iran and the United States over the nuclear deal."
Bohbot added that a conflict might soon begin between the United States and "Israel" over the issue and even if they try to keep it behind the scenes, it will appear to the public.
According to Bohbot, "the Iranians are cleverly leading the Americans by the nose," which does not make the United States militarily reliable, he added.
