Kerry’s ‘threats, intimidation’ won’t silence Israel, official tells NYT

An Israeli official hit back at US Secretary of State John Kerry over the weekend following remarks that were perceived by the government in Jerusalem as "thinly veiled efforts to muzzle criticism" of the Iran nuclear agreement.

Responding to Kerry’s contention that Israel would face even more international isolation if Congress strikes down the Iran nuclear deal, the official told The New York Times on Saturday that the government would continue its public lobbying.

“We reject the threats directed at Israel in recent days,” the official told the Times.
