Prime Minister Naftali Bennett believes that Israel's conduct vis-à-vis the regime in Tehran could bring Iran closer to re-signing a stricter nuclear deal, one that Israel can live with. In an interview with The Economist published on Wednesday, Bennett said that Iran’s economy is in such dire need of relief from sanctions that if America plays tough it may be able to strike a deal that freezes Iran’s nuclear development indefinitely, without the “sunset clauses” of the original pact, whereby curbs on Iran lapse after a time.

Israel, according to Bennett, seeks to outspend Iran in its weapons programs and outmatch it in technology—in the hope of bankrupting it. On Israel’s fight against Iranian terror, Bennett said, “We are implementing the Octopus Doctrine. We no longer play with the tentacles, with Iran’s proxies: we’ve created a new equation by going for the head.”
