Removing the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ designation as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) is too high a price to pay for a nuclear deal with Iran, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said at the start of Sunday’s cabinet meeting. “Unfortunately, there is determination to sign a nuclear agreement with Iran at almost any price, including saying that the world’s largest terrorist organization is not a terrorist organization,” he said. “That is too high a price.”

Bennett expressed concern about Iran’s “audacious” demand that the IRGC be removed from the FTO list as a side deal to the revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The US has sought a public commitment from Iran to de-escalate in the region and not to attack Americans, something Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said Friday in a joint statement they “find hard to believe.”

“The IRGC is the largest, most murderous terrorist organization in the word, and unlike ISIS or other organizations, they have a state behind them,” Bennett said. “This is not just an Israeli problem; other countries, US allies in the region, are dealing with this organization day after day, hour after hour.” The IRGC and its proxies have shot missiles and UAVs (drones) into countries throughout the region, he said.
