President Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran is the best thing that could have happened to Israel at this time. Until now, Iran was able to develop nuclear capabilities below the radar, with the help of a security umbrella upheld by the international community. Now, with the Mossad’s revelation of Iran’s continued nuclear development, the international community can no longer bury its head in the sand. There are no more illusions. Trump’s withdrawal from the deal exposes Iran’s continued nuclear development to the light of day.
The most important thing for Israel’s government to do right now is to stop passing the responsibility for Israel’s safety and security to America’s doorstep. It must take the fate of Israel into its own hands.
