The Israeli press quoted Mossad chief David Barnea as warning the United States and Europe Aug. 25 against rushing into a terrible deal with Iran. Barnea reportedly called the emerging Iran nuclear deal “a strategic disaster” for Israel, warning that it would not block his agency from acting against Iran in the future to protect Israel’s security.

Barnea said the deal is “very bad for Israel” and that the United States “is rushing into an accord that is ultimately based on lies.”
