Friedman Slams 'Israel Lobby' for Preventing Iran Deal

In his latest screed, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman accused the “Israel lobby” of standing in the way of U.S. President Barack H. Obama, preventing him from reaching a desirable agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.

“Never have I seen Israel and America’s core Arab allies working more in concert to stymie a major foreign policy initiative of a sitting U.S. president, and never have I seen more lawmakers — Democrats and Republicans — more willing to take Israel’s side against their own president’s,” Friedman wrote in his latest op-ed blog piece.
