President Obama Defends
the Iran Nuclear Deal
President Obama: "There's going to have to be a transition inside of Iran, even if gradual, in which there's a recognition that chanting "death to America" or denying the Holocaust among its leaders or threatening Israel with destruction or, you know, providing arms to Hezbollah, which is on the terrorist list — that those things make Iran a pariah in the eyes of a large part of the world.
. . . as president, I have not only pledged and committed to make sure that America supports Israel’s security. But I've also provided more intelligence and military cooperation with Israel than any previous president. . . . I don't oppose the Israeli prime minister across the board. . . . on a whole range of issues — particularly with respect to Israel's security, we've been with Israel every step of the way. And even Prime Minister Netanyahu's government would acknowledge that."
