Netanyahu said this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That’s why this deal is so bad. It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb. It just kicks the can 10 to 15 years down the road and then the sanctions will be lifted freeing Iran to build as many bombs as it wants.
We only have to look at North Korea to see what negotiations like these produce. North Korea has several bombs at its disposal and those negotiating with Iran are the same that are negotiating with North Korea. What makes anyone believe that the same people with the same process will get different results with Iran?
Everyone wants a deal. I want one, the American people want one, even Israel wants one, but we want one that will guarantee peace. Netanyahu outlined three things that need to be in the agreement if this is to be accomplished.
First, stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East.
Second… Second, stop supporting terrorism around the world.
And third, stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.
The sanctions should not have an expiration date, it should be based upon their behavior. America’s founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. When the behavior changes, the sanctions can end.
For Congress to be able to keep a bad deal from being struck there will have to be enough votes to override a Presidential veto. This means that there will have to be enough Democrat Senators willing to stand against the President on this issue.
The situation we face today is not much different from what we saw in the 1930’s with Hitler. Had we listened to Churchill instead of Chamberlain we may have averted WWII. Churchill warned of what would happen if Hitler was not stopped. We are doing the same thing concerning Iran. We need to stop this totalitarian country’s aggression before it is too late.
When will we learn that you can’t appease evil. The more you tolerate, the more it will grow. Netanyahu said that it was foolish to think the Iranian regime will change. It will not. To think that we can control a people controlled by Satan and governed by Islam, which is inherently anti-Semitic, is the hight of foolishness.
Iran believes they are ushering in the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, the messiah of Islam. They believe that Isa, the Muslim Jesus, is going to come back with Mahdi and kill the pigs (the Jews) and destroy the Christians. This is an important part of Islamic doctrine.
The only real hope is a change of governments in Iran. As long as Iran has an Islamic government things will continue as they are.
Let me tell you how Netanyahu’s speech helped me and how I think it helps America. He said that the Obama administration is on the path to creating a bad deal. One of the things that makes it bad is the sunset clause that lifts the sanctions at a given time with no requirements upon Iran to change their behavior. As I have already said, to assume that the present regime in Iran will clean up its act is foolish. Is there any evidence of this happening today?
Here is something Netanyahu said that is very important concerning this issue:
The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog agency, the IAEA, said again yesterday that Iran still refuses to come clean about its military nuclear program. Iran was also caught — caught twice, not once, twice — operating secret nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom, facilities that inspectors didn’t even know existed. Right now, Iran could be hiding nuclear facilities that we don’t know about, the U.S. and Israel. As the former head of inspections for the IAEA said in 2013, he said, “If there’s no undeclared installation today in Iran, it will be the first time in 20 years that it doesn’t have one.”
Even knowing this, this administration is trying to negotiate with the Iranian leaders. With all of the proof that they cannot be trusted, why would they do this?
Last week Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. Does it really look like Iran wants peace? How can anyone trust Iran to do what it says? I might add that Muhammad used the same tactic of signing a peace accord to gain some time and then break it as soon has he was ready to attack.
Again, you can’t expect Iran to change because they are not governed by politics, they are governed by an ideology. This ideology is dedicated to destroying Israel, and all Jewish people and converting or killing all “unbelievers.” These people believe they are ushering in the end time eschatology of Islam. They cannot be negotiated with.
Some think that this is happening because Obama is naive concerning Islam. I don’t believe this to be the case. I believe he knows exactly what he is doing.
