Israel’s ambassador to US lobbies Democrats in effort to scuttle Iran deal

Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer met with House Democrats Thursday, lobbying for their support in an effort to scuttle the Obama administration’s signature foreign policy achievement since the president took office – the recently signed nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers which aims to curb the Islamic Republic’s ambition in an attaining a nuclear weapon.

According to Politico, who spoke to multiple lawmakers about the effort, Dermer’s message was clear: "don’t worry about voting against the Iran deal, because no matter what, the US will not allow the Islamic Republic to obtain a nuclear weapon."
