Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg Middle East Editor Elliott Gotkine examines Israel’s reaction to the deal scaling back economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for a reduction in its nuclear capabilities. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

Good morning.

What will we see from israel today?

How will they immediately respond this monday or tuesday?

I think they will respond.

We had the prime minister yesterday saying this was not an historic agreement, but up mistake.

He said that israel will be bound by the terms of this agreement.

It will do everything in their power to defend themselves.

They are leaving the military option on the table.

You cannot really see them going it alone against iran.

You have the united states and other world powers -- members of the un security council, all in favor of the diplomatic path.

Across all of the middle east, there's is a distrust of persia.

Is israel a partner here with saudi arabia?

Certainly their interest are aligned.

There is a lot of rivalry and distrust between the saudi's and the radiance.

In that sense, if it was not for the palestinian issue, then you can certainly see that the saudi's and israelis -- the other thing is the initiative that offers normalization of a -- relations for a comprehensive peace agreement.

This would not be the first time that the israelis and the saudi's interests have aligned.

If you look back to afghanistan, they were also aligned.

You would not get this in public.

Publicly speaking and politically speaking, these are two countries that do not have diplomatic relations.

They do not have a relationship.

What is interesting is how the stocks are performing.

They are up for the eighth straight day.

Investors seem to be taking a completely different approach.

Look, they do not like the possibility that there could be some kind of military action.

That is the illusion -- have there been a strike, there would not be any repercussions or coming back in response.

The fact that a military possibility is now at least six months or more away, that should give investors more assurance.

So, we have seen the reaction in the stocks all day.

The important thing is that it is a $7 billion relief for iran.

That is very symbolic.

That is part of their economy.

Broadly speaking, the implications are much greater.

On a much broader scale, there is concern that perhaps this indicates the u.s. is pulling back in general.

Is that sentiment reverberating at all?

Obama and netanyahu -- they pointed out that we still have your back.

They are very much our ally.

The u.s. will do everything to protect israel.

There is a warming of the relationship between netanyahu and obama.

Got got colder over the weekend.

Thank you very much.

Israel is not happy.

Saudi arabia is not happy.

The white house is cheering.

John kerry is happy.

In the wall street journal this morning -- talking about a war weary psychology.

It is interesting.

The national security advisor will be joining us in the next hour.

He will talk about the economic sanctions that brought iran to the table and brought us to this
