Israel Will Investigate If Iran Holds True to Deal
“Everyone has his own view regarding the Geneva agreement,” an Israeli intelligence source was quoted as saying. “But it is clear that if a smoking gun is produced, it will tumble like a house of cards.”
If Israel does produce evidence that Iran is flouting its deal with the world powers, the agreement could prove a tough sell for Obama in Congress.
Claiming that officials and businesspeople from around the world — notably including China, Turkey, France, Russia and India — are already converging on Iran, ready to resume large-scale oil, banking and all manner of other business dealings as sanctions are eased in the wake the Geneva deal, the officials reportedly said that Israel knew the sanctions pressure would collapse, “but even we didn’t imagine it would happen this fast.”
The State Department has acknowledged that Iran is currently enjoying a “window” of time before the six-month interim deal takes effect, during which it is not bound to take any credible steps toward disabling its ability to produce a nuclear weapon. The terms of the deal, which are still being worked out, will only kick in come January.
