Benjamin Netanyahu reacted angrily to the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, suggesting that it would lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

The Israeli prime minister said:

From the initial reports received, it is already possible to say that this agreement is a historic mistake for the world.

The world is a much more dangerous place.

Wide-ranging concessions were made in all of the areas which should have prevented Iran from getting the ability to arm itself with a nuclear weapon.

The desire to sign an agreement was stronger than everything else.

But how many nuclear weapons are there in the world currently, and who owns them?
