Programming Alert: Don't miss an exclusive interview with Dick Cheney on the Iran nuclear deal, tonight at 10p/1a ET on "Hannity."


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today forcefully criticized the new agreement on Iran's nuclear program, calling it a "stunning historic mistake."

Netanyahu said that the deal, which was announced this morning, doesn’t require Iran to cease its aggressive behavior.

“While negotiators were closing the deal in Vienna, Iran’s supposedly moderate president chose to go to a rally in Tehran, and at this rally, a frenzied mob burned American and Israeli flags and chanted, ‘Death to America, death to Israel.’ Now, this didn’t happen four years ago, it happened four days ago,” he said.

The Israeli prime minister charged the international community with removing sanctions against Iran while allowing Iran to keep its nuclear program.

“In a decade, this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs, in fact, an entire nuclear arsenal with the means to deliver it,” he said. “What a stunning historic mistake.”

Netanyahu stressed that Israel is not bound by this deal since Iran continues to seek Israel’s destruction.

“We will always defend ourselves,” he pledged.

On Monday, Israel's defense minister said that the country would need to prepare to defend itself.

“The bottom line is, a bad deal is coming, and after it, we will have to be prepared to defend ourselves on our own," Moshe Ya'alon said.

He added that the deal has a "lot of holes" and will allow Iran to continue supporting terror organizations while becoming a "nuclear threshold state."
