Netanyahu warns US not to work with Iran on Iraq crisis

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the weekly cabinet meeting on June 22, 2014 in JerusalemIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday warned close ally the United States against working with arch-foe Iran in the effort to pull Iraq back from the brink. Israel has consistently voiced fears that a swift jihadist offensive led by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that has swept up swaths of Iraq may prompt concessions to Tehran from Washington. The United States and Iran now find themselves sharing a common interest in helping Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki fend off the onslaught, and the two sides held rare, brief talks last week in Vienna on the sidelines of international consultations on Tehran’s nuclear program. “What you’re seeing in the Middle East today in Iraq and in Syria is the stark hatred between radical Shiites — in this case led by Iran — and radical Sunnis led by Al-Qaeda and ISIS and others,” Netanyahu told NBC’s “Meet the Press”, referring to ISIL.
