The US president wants to proceed along his current negotiations path, hoping to reach what he deems to be, a peaceful outcome to the Iranian problem.

Can Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thwart a bad agreement between US and Iran? I wish he could. Unfortunately, US President Barack Obama has a mind of his own. The US president wants to proceed along his current negotiations path, hoping to reach what he deems to be, a peaceful outcome to the Iranian problem.

The Israeli prime minister and the American president disagree on the merits of such an agreement. Netanyahu believes that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is seeking to deceive the US, the remainder of the P5+1 countries and the rest of the world, by abandoning an immediate dash to the fabrication of an atomic bomb, postponing it to a future, just round the corner date, while rewarding Iran with lifting of the economic sanctions in return. He believes that as long as Iran is allowed to maintain its means for enriching Uranium, it remains a threshold nuclear power with the potential of becoming an actual nuclear power in a flash.
