Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned German Chancellor Angela Merkel Monday that Iranian meddling in the Middle East could touch off massive new refugee flows to Europe, as they clashed about the future of the nuclear deal with Tehran.At the start of a three-day European tour dominated by strategic differences on Iran, Netanyahu charged that Tehran has been able to bankroll a growing military presence in countries such as Syria and Yemen because sanctions had been lifted in exchange for its halt in nuclear enrichment activities.More than 1 million asylum seekers, with Syrians making up the biggest group, arrived in Germany since 2015, creating deep new political divisions in the country and shrinking Merkel's ruling majority in her fourth term.Germany, France and Britain are three of the signatories of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between world powers and Iran, aimed at keeping Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.Netanyahu, who has long railed against the deal, went to Paris for meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron Tuesday and will continue on to visit British Prime Minister Theresa May Wednesday.
