IT'S ABOUT INTERNAL POLITICS, NOT GEO:

Netanyahu at odds with security team over Iran deal (JOSEF FEDERMAN, October 12, 2017, tIMES OF iSRAEL)

[T]here is a strong sense among his own security establishment that there are few good alternatives, that the deal has benefited Israel, and that US credibility could be squandered in the turbulent Middle East in ways that could harm Israel itself. [...]

"It seems to me that the less risky approach is to build on the existing agreement, among other reasons because it does set concrete limitations on the Iranians," said Uzi Arad, a former national security adviser to Netanyahu. "It imposes ceilings and benchmarks and verification systems that you do not want to lose. Why lose it?"

Ideology.
