Since the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) commonly known as the Iran Deal was signed and implemented, Iran’s aggression against Israel and America has increased. Enriched and emboldened by a fresh influx of over $100 billion to its government, Iran poses a greater danger to both Israel and America.
