High-Stakes International Drama

Reported and embellished:

Netanyahu Scolded Obama in Phone Call on Iran Deal

"The prime minister made it clear to the most powerful man on earth that if he intends to stay the most powerful man on earth, it's important to make a change in American policy because the practical result of his current policy is liable to lead him to the same failure that the Americans absorbed in North Korea and Pakistan, and Iran could be next in line."

That was the message conveyed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to President Barack Obama in a private telephone call Sunday

So, if America, land of democracy, is faced with an assertive fundamentalist regime driven by a theology of political messianism which, among other things denies Israel's right to exist while seeking an expanded nuclear program that can produce weapons of mass destruction, and America relaxes its counter-pressure, is that smart?

And England, too?

British Foreign Secretary William Hague warned Israel not to interfere with the emerging deal, perhaps voicing a sentiment shared by Obama and other diplomatic partners.
