Petulant manchild asks Netanyahu to please stop criticizing him on Iran deal

(WJD) Apparently unable to either take the heat or get out of the kitchen, U.S. President Barack Obama has personally asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop criticizing him on his deal with Iran.

YNet and the Washington Post reported on Thursday that Obama complained about Netanyahu's 'clamorous criticism' of the deal, which allows Iran to retain its nuclear infrastructure and continue enriching uranium. Netanyahu opposes any deal that does not completely end Iran's nuclear program.

Obama apparently continued the administration's official line - already rejected by Iran itself - that the deal is much better than initially reported, and asked Netanyahu to send a diplomatic team to Washington in order to clarify the issue.

Netanyahu's reaction to Obama's request has not been reported, but it is widely expected that the prime minister will send at least one personal envoy to the White House.
