Israeli paper says “Netanyahu’s campaign against Iran deal is a colossal failure”
The Jerusalem Post said on Monday that “Yesh Atid leader says Netanyahu caused the White House to stop listening to Israel.
Yesh Atid chief Yair Lapid, said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s diplomatic campaign on the Iranian nuclear issue has been a ‘colossal failure.’
Lapid said the diplomatic efforts must now shift to focus only on the international supervisory mechanisms on the Iranian nuclear program.
In a separate interview that Lapid gave on Monday morning he said that Israel was sidelined from the talks with Iran because the White House shut Netanyahu out.
‘I also am not thrilled by Obama’s [US President Barack Obama] polices. But Netanyahu crossed a line that caused the White House to stop listening to Israel,’ Lapid told Army Radio.
‘In the last year we weren’t even in the arena, we had no representative in Vienna, our intelligence cooperation was harmed, and the door to the White House was closed to us,’ he added.
He said that the Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was quoted over the weekend as saying that Iran “needs to plan to fight the US regardless of whether there is an agreement.”
