Obama Rejects Netanyahu’s Call for Iran to Recognize Israel

On Monday, President Barack Obama casually rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s call to force Iran to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist as part of any agreement on the country’s nuclear program.

In an interview with NPR, Obama stated loftily, “The notion that we would condition Iran not getting nuclear weapons in a verifiable deal on Iran recognizing Israel is really akin to saying that we won’t sign a deal unless the nature of the Iranian regime completely transforms. And that is, I think, a fundamental misjudgment.”

On Friday, one day after the announcement from the P5+1 powers that the had reached a preliminary “framework” agreement with the terrorist state, Netanyahu said, “Israel will not accept an agreement which allows a country that vows to annihilate us to develop nuclear weapons, period. In addition, Israel demands that any final agreement with Iran will include a clear and unambiguous Iranian recognition of Israel’s right to exist.”
