Israel prepares its lobbying strategy against nuclear deal with Iran

An official Israeli analysis of the nuclear framework deal that world powers reached with Iran has drawn up a list of alleged shortcomings, providing a basis for what is expected to be months of furious lobbying by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cancel or amend the pact.

The analysis, drawn up by officials in Netanyahu's office over the weekend, claims the system of inspections of Iranian nuclear sites is not as thorough as proclaimed by negotiators. It also says the agreement will allow Iran to continue to use advanced centrifuges, and is vague about what happens to Iran's stockpile of enriched uranium, a key ingredient in producing nuclear bombs.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the document Sunday from an official who demanded anonymity because of its confidential nature.
