Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems close to ordering a general mobilization of his country's military, and Republicans in the United States are preparing for a ferocious battle with President Barack Obama's administration, in the wake of the framework nuclear agreement with Iran. And yet the framework deal has been almost universally welcomed in Europe. There has long been a tactical difference between U.S. and European policies toward Iran's nuclear program.Needless to say, the U.S. and Europe should stick to a common approach on the sanctions issue.Indeed, on this issue, the U.S. might rapidly find itself isolated from all other global actors.Finally, Israel is a key factor underlying the differences between the U.S. and Europe when it comes to Iran.Thus, it is nearly certain that, assuming a final agreement with Iran is reached in June, Europe's backing for it will be unanimous--or close to it--and that it will be eager to support Obama in his battle with opponents of the deal at home.
