Skip to comments.Israeli Ambassador on Iran Deal: ‘We Cannot Roll the Dice’ on Survival of Jewish State

Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, snapped his fingers to signify how quickly the Jewish state could go from being strong to vulnerable in the face of a nuclear Iran.
We dont believe the choice is war or to accept this deal, Dermer said. We believe the way to peacefully resolve this issue is to combine a credible, military threat of force with crippling sanctions.
That combination has not been deployed for 10 years, he noted. We had sanctions on Iran for a long time, but crippling sanctions only began in 2012. And within 18 months, Iran came to the negotiating table desperate to see those sanctions removed.
What this deal does is it dismantles the sanctions regime and leaves Iran with its nuclear program essentially intactalbeit with constraints, but within about a decade those constraints are removed and Iran will have an industrial [nuclear] program tomorrow, Dermer said.
Under this deal, Iran will walk into the nuclear club. The alternative to this is to hold firm, ratchet up pressure, and to not assume that what Iran wont agree to today, they wont agree to tomorrow.
Israel is a very strong country with a very strong economy, and a very resilient public, Dermer said. We didnt come back from 2,000 years of exile to see a bunch of fanatical ayatollahs cut the thread of Jewish history. Thats not gonna happen.
We have to stay very strong, and have to recognize that because Israel is a very strong country, we can go from great strength to great vulnerability like that, he continued. If Israel makes mistakes, we can become very vulnerable very quickly. We cannot roll the dice on the future of the one and only Jewish state.

I really like Ron. He reminds me of Netanyahu.
Hey, he can’t say “crippling sanctions.” It has to be differently-abled sanctions.
You would think that if someone wasn't an incompetent ignorant affirmative action jackass, they would realize that letting Iran get a bomb is a GUARANTEE that Israel is going to start a nuclear war with them.
But Obama is the stupidest clown that ever opened his eyes in the Whitehouse, and he doesn't have a freakin clue as to what's going to happen.
I Predict his name will be a substitute for the word "Stupid" in the future. He's already exceeded Chamberlain and Carter in his degree of naivety.
Haha! Great point. Especially if he wishes to have any hope of winning over the extreme left in USA
The day the deal is announced Israel should attack
