Essential Hebrew and the Iran Nuclear Deal

On July 14, the world awoke to the news that negotiators had reached a nuclear deal with Iran that allows for unrestricted inspector access to Iran’s nuclear facilities and prevents Iran from developing a nuclear bomb. While much of the world saw the deal as a major achievement, Israel was quick to criticize the development and Prime Minister Netanyahu came out strongly against it.

The Iranian nuclear issue is a very common subject in Israeli media and to truly understand Israel’s perspective on the issue, Hebrew learners should be able to read Hebrew language news articles on the topic. Most Hebrew articles on the Iranian nuclear issue tend to use similar vocabulary and in this blog post we will break down the critical vocabulary from an Israeli news article on today’s development as well as the Prime Minister’s reaction in the attached video.
