British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond lashed out at Israel after the P5+1 nuclear deal was announced this week. The British Foreign Minister accused the Israelis of wanting a permanent standoff with Iran.
It’s the Jews’ fault.
The Iran Project reported:

Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond says Israel seeks a “permanent standoff” with Iran, noting that the Tel Aviv regime would not have welcomed any kind of conclusion to the nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 group.

Israel wants a permanent state of standoff and I don’t believe that’s in the interests of the region, I don’t believe it’s in our interest,” Hammond told the House of Commons on Wednesday a day after Iran and the P5+1 group — the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany — reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the Austrian capital city of Vienna.

The JCPOA will put limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

The senior British diplomat made the remarks in response to criticism by opposition lawmaker Ian Austin, who said that the conclusion of the talks between Tehran and the six world powers has “utterly dismayed” Israel.
