"This appeasement entails promises of a new deal that would include matters we all chose to exclude at the outset of our negotiations, including Iran's defensive capabilities and regional influence.

And I believe strongly that this pressure will require sanctions if we are to avoid conflict, and that Europe in the coming days must produce a legitimate, reasonable, and serious sanctions proposal against Iran to deal with its regional and missile program as well as its nuclear issues". As former USA president Barack Obama famously stated, the deal "is not based on trust".

The inspection clauses are also weak because Iran is not obliged to give global inspectors access to military sites where it is thought nuclear weapons research is carried out.

Merkel told reporters on Wednesday that "it's very important the information which came from Israel is made available to the IAEA very quickly so that an examination can take place there".

On April 14, the US, UK and France carried out a wave of punitive strikes against Assad's regime forces in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks in Douma that President Donald Trump branded the "crimes of a monster".

The abiding antipathy the US public feels toward Iran encouraged Donald Trump to attack the nuclear pact as a populist candidate. "Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear weapons program".

Both Trump and Netanyahu paint Iran as the most risky terrorist state in the world. He also indicated that the United States had known about the material before. So even if Iran fully complies with the deal, it can - and likely will - still achieve a nuclear weapon. When the IAEA says Iran is "in compliance", it means Iran is in compliance regarding those facilities Iran permits to be inspected.

"In the case of sanctions against Russia, we flatly refused to join them", Liberman said, specifically referencing the decision by the United States and a host of European countries to expel Russian diplomats following the assassination attempt on the former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, England. He tweeted after Netanyahu's presentation, "All the agreement is based on the assumption that they may lie!"

On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. will work with its allies to counter Iran's "malign" influence and support for terrorism in the region. It sends two clear messages: Jerusalem is Israel's capital, and Israel is strong - it has America's backing. Iran has continually lied about its nuclear programs as well as its intentions. Over months of negotiations, they have sought to convince their American interlocutors that adhering to the agreement and working to improve it are preferable to scrapping it altogether. Israel responded by destroying 1/3 to 1/2 of Syria's surface-to-air missile batteries and further struck four Iranian bases. "They must have manufactured pieces of equipment in Iran", Heinonen said.

It comes as Trump has signaled he will withdraw from the agreement by May 12 if it is not renegotiated and changed. One thing is clear: We can not allow Iran to get any closer to developing nuclear weapons. "Here we have a jigsaw puzzle with 30 to 40 percent of the pieces [turned into] one that has 99 percent of the pieces".
