Obama: Israel loves the Iran deal now! Israel: Say what?

Hot Air  "Alternate headline: Dr. Strangepresident, or How Israel Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Iranian Bomb. In his haste to defend himself from allegations that he paid a $400 million ransom to Iran in exchange for American hostages, Barack Obama made a curious counter-claim. After arguing that the payment to Iran had been disclosed at the time and was not connected to the release of Americans by Tehran, Obama then claimed that Israel had shifted its position on the Iran deal and was now supporting it . . .
Here comes the appropriate comparison to Munich in 1938:
The Defense Ministry made the Munich argument explicit:
“The Munich Agreement didn’t prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust precisely because its basis, according to which Nazi Germany could be a partner for some sort of agreement, was flawed, and because the leaders of the world then ignored the explicit statements of [Adolf] Hitler and the rest of Nazi Germany’s leaders,” the ministry said.
“These things are also true about Iran, which also clearly states openly that its aim is to destroy the state of Israel,” it said, pointing to a recent State Department report that determined that Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism worldwide.

A top minister close to Netanyahu, meanwhile, directly contradicted Obama’s assertion that Israeli security officials now back the accord. “I don’t know to which Israelis he (Obama) spoke recently. But I can promise you that the position of the prime minister, the defense minister and of most senior officials in the defense establishment has not changed,” Tzachi Hanegbi told The Times of Israel.
