Any lie will do

This is picked up from John Hinderaker at Powerline: ON IRAN, ISRAELIS SAY: OBAMA IS WRONG. This has large implications and will add to the tensions between the US and Israel, but sometimes clarity is more important:

Israel is rejecting remarks by President Barack Obama contending it no longer opposes the nuclear deal that world powers struck with Iran in 2015.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday that “Israel’s view on the Iran deal remains unchanged.”

Israel’s Defense Ministry reportedly compared the deal to the 1938 Munich Pact ahead of World War II, which Britain and France signed with Germany and which averted war at the time but effectively gave then-Czechoslovakia to the Nazis.

The final point made in the post is the right one: “We have entered a bizarro world in which facts seemingly make no difference. Any lie will do, as far as the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton are concerned.” How Israel, or the rest of us for that matter, are going to survive this period of history is now anyone’s guess.
