Bibi And GOP Whine While Stock Market and Spooks Love Iran Nuke Deal

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal top headline told us that there was much opposition to the Iran nuclear deal that Sec. State John Kerry has pulled off with Iran and the P5+1 in Geneva.  Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu is loudly denouncing it as a horrible mistake, and many Republkicans in Congress are joining in with his denunciation, despite 2 to 1 public opinion poll support in the US.

However, it looks like Bibi is out of step with some important opinion makers in Israel itself on this matter, who seem to view the matter in a much more favorable light.  One is the Israeli stock market, reaching new highs in the wake of the agreement, and more silently but there nevertheless, the Israeli military-intelligence security establishment, whom Bibi likes to ignore in order to enflame his political backers and undercut Obama, whom he is very annoyed he failed to have Romney defeat last year in the US election, darn it!

Sorry.  Bad links; for the second one, try .  The one I linked to is Stratfor that does not get it and still thinks the Saudis are upset. They are not.  For the first one, there are lots of sources out there about the Israeli stock market booming on the news.

Bibi seems short-sighted if he took a short position in the Israeli stock market.

Recall Bibi's going long for then Pres. George W who in retirement now seeks to convert Jews to Christianity. Maybe it's time for Bibi to short the Burning Bush.
