(AP) Israeli PM tweets over ‘bad deal’ with Iran
Israel’s prime minister has taken to Twitter to keep pressure up on Western powers over negotiations with Iran on its contested nuclear program.
A tweet Friday on Benjamin Netanyahu’s Twitter account featured a cartoon-like ad saying “Iran is getting everything and giving nothing.”

Netanyahu has been increasingly vocal about his opposition to a potential deal between six Western powers and Iran that would lift some sanctions while still leaving Iran with uranium-enrichment capabilities. Netanyahu has said he utterly rejects the agreement and has been lobbying American allies in Congress to keep up sanctions. The approach has strained relations with the Obama administration.
Israel considers Iran an arch-enemy and has vowed to do anything, including a military strike, to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
