A coalition of almost 3,000 Israeli military leaders, soldiers, commanders, and intelligence officers has warned President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress that a new nuclear agreement with Iran constitutes a “serious threat to Israel’s security.” Last week, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and senior Biden administration officials received the letter.
In an open letter to President Joe Biden, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres detail what the Jewish state expects from the Biden administration if it continues talks with Iran. They believe that the 2015 nuclear agreement is fundamentally defective and poses a substantial threat to Israel’s security. Iran’s sole objective, they claim, is to establish a “nuclear umbrella” from which Tehran can rule the area.
Moreover, Israel’s senior military officers have warned that a temporary agreement with Iran will bolster the country’s economy while putting Israel in an untenable position. They claim that such a result is unacceptable. They claim that a so-called “less-for-more” bargain relieves the religious dictatorship of “necessary pressure.”
They say that such a settlement must include the capacity to examine undeclared nuclear materials, sites, and operations everywhere and at any time, as well as a complete resolution of unresolved questions concerning undeclared nuclear materials, sites, and activities. Under a procedure known as “snapback,” the US should fight for the reinstatement of all UN sanctions on Iran. According to Israeli military authorities, these sanctions are crucial in putting the Iranian regime’s economy on the ropes. A new agreement should make it illegal for Iran to construct ballistic missiles, which the government is developing to deliver a nuclear payload across long distances.
According to Israeli military commanders, any new agreement must include restoring a long-standing arms embargo against Iran. As a result, Iran has acquired modern military weapons from countries like Russia and China. Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard Corps has been unable to increase its influence over its nuclear-related industry due to sanctions. Sanctions on the central bank, which supports terrorists and the country’s nuclear program, would also be included.
