Mr. Dermer, now a private citizen, but still a confidant of mr. Netanyahu said the Biden government was “at best a home of Iran and at worst a reconciliation with Iran”.

Two collaborators of President Hassan Rouhani, a moderate who was an architect of the original nuclear deal, were disqualified from the final list on Tuesday, virtually guaranteeing that the next president will be a conservative line of business that now joins supreme leader Ayatollah Ali.
