Robert Kraft, the owner of the champion New England Patriots, is a longtime supporter of Israel. Today he led a delegation of 20 former NFL players, many of them in the Hall of Fame, to Israel, where they met with PM Benjamin Netanyahu and he used the visit to inveigh against the Iran deal.
From the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
Prime Minister Netanyahu told the players, who wore their famous Hall of Fame Gold Jackets and many of whom are on their first visit to Israel, about the many challenges Israel faces, especially Iran’s efforts to achieve nuclear weapons.
“Iran is one yard away from the goal line. If they get nukes, the preeminent terrorist regime of our day will be armed with nuclear weapons. That’s dangerous for the United States and for Israel and for the entire world. And our effort today is to make sure that we block them and push them back, that’s the ultimate contest and the ultimate challenge, and I hope it was advanced somewhat by this visit…” the Prime Minister said.
