The end of sanctions against Iran by the western powers is a major defeat for Benjamin Netanyahu.
Indeed, the Israeli prime minister had, for over ten years, transformed Iran into public enemy number one, a threat to the very existence of civilisation. With rare obsession, Netanyahu continuously encouraged the US to strike on Tehran, before it's too late. At times he hinted/declared that if the international community fails in this responsibilities, that Israel would be obliged to do the work alone. This earned him warnings from the Israeli security apparatus, which was more aware of the military balance of power and Tehran's response capabilities.
Tehran has therefore landed a strategic blow to neo-conservatives, particularly those in power in Tel Aviv.
The new place of Iran in international relations is a result, amongst other things, of the spectacular breakthrough of ISIS in the region and an American push to change its regional alliances. Iran is understood as not part of the problem but rather, part of the solution. Yet Netanyahu is blind. The Israeli prime minister is behind the curve, and lives in dissonance with the real world of 2016.
What makes this more dangerous: Israel is a small country but a great military – and nuclear, according to international sources - power. And Israel's extreme right-wing government is capable of the worst, precisely because the world in which it lives is entirely virtual.
