The nuclear agreement between the world powers and Iran apparently emerging from the talks in Lausanne confirm all of Israel's concerns, "and even more than that,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting, according to Haaretz.
At the same time that the talks are taking place in Lausanne, he said, the Ansarullah fighters in Yemen are in the process of occupying large segments of Yemen and trying to gain control of the strategic Bab el-Mandeb waterway which is critical to the free flow of the world's oil.
"After the Beirut-Damascus-Baghdad axis, Iran is carrying out a pincer movement from the south to take over and occupy the entire Middle East. The Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis is very dangerous to humanity and it must be stopped,” he said.
Netanyahu said he spoke over the weekend with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and with the Democratic leader in the senate Harry Reid, and discussed Israel's deep concern about the emerging agreement. He said that they both spoke of "firm, strong and continuing” bipartisan support for Israel.
