The "Everyone Loses" Nuclear Agreement with Iran

Analysts that try to put a positive spin on this Yes Nukes deal with Iran will for the most part be found wanting if the deal is implemented. It is important for Congress to take a stand here to fix this very bad deal.  If not, it boxes Israel in a corner and that is not in the interests of peace either.

If congress is able to cancel this agreement, they may seek a compromise solution of editing and limiting the agreement rather than to repeal it entirely. It all depends on how many democrats take this for the serious threat to national security that it is. Although the President should have the right to conduct foreign policy, it must be on behalf of American interests, and this agreement does not seem to pass that test. Although it's best for America to look decisive, it's vital for America to not be self-destructive, nor the diplomatic epicenter of World War III.

Outright rejection of the treaty would be preferred, as it would act as a gentle form of censure of the President for risking national security so brazenly.

If congress is unable to act, the only good thing is that now there will be no room to allow Iran to continue to get away with it once they violate it and everyone not high on diplomatic euphoria knows that they will. The moral outrage of a broken deal is the only thing left that can wake a left wing in the West that is preoccupied and distracted from the clear evil intentions of the Iranian regime. Unfortunately that may mean a war somewhat akin to World War III, but that is where Western leaders have joyfully allowed Iran to lead them.

Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif made a statement today, calling this a Win-Win agreement and historic.  He said, "We are reaching an agreement that is not perfect for anybody, but it is what we could accomplish," Zarif continued, "and it is an important achievement for all of us. Today could have been the end of hope on this issue. But now we are starting a new chapter of hope."

If you wish to translate through the obfuscation, just reverse everything he said and then you'll come out with the truth. It is a lose-lose agreement that begins the loss of hope of avoiding war.

Meanwhile President Obama has stated he did this deal to prevent a spiral into war, but unfortunately it is very likely to provide just the opposite. The deal would have had to be much tougher to prevent war. Now the President has written that spiral into war into a treaty.

Without any moral reversal of their hatred for America and Israel, Iran is to be allowed Nuclear Research and Development and Missile production as RIGHTS.

Inspections would have to have zero notice capability to have meaning.  Iran is to be given weeks.  (See Annex 1.78 for details. It would take 14 days to request Iran to CONSIDER meeting IAEA requests for an inspection, and another 7 days to set a committee to deal with the issue, and 3 
days for Iran to respond, and thus to be able to compel Iran, from time of complaint until the last day Iran could get away with delaying compliance, it would be a total of 24 days!)  More than enough time to hide things that could embarrass any signatory of this deal, but not meaningful to prevent nukes. Depending on diplomatic matters and procedure more than inspection imperatives can only bring disaster. There are other loopholes as well. 

Meanwhile they continue to threaten Israel and hold American citizens in their prisons. 

As Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed out, giving billions in sanctions relief to Iran even as they pledge to continue their unofficial war against the West, will undoubtedly be used to immediately bolster funding of terror throughout the world.

There is too much wiggle room for Iran and too little reassurances to Israel to avoid conflict. There is a very good chance that Israel would have to strike sooner than they would have liked to, since there would no longer be the USA as a giant shot blocker in the background helping Israel to defend the basket.

Whether they are attacked by Israel first or not, Iran could be planning to attempt to strike at a dozen nations at once rather than fight a traditional bi-national war, considering their affiliated international terrorist network. Israel has the right to defend itself under international law. But in forcing them into this hole, against a country they can wound but not overwhelm with one conventional strike, Obama, has unwittingly perhaps set the stage for a protracted multinational war.  The calling of US troops into harms way is an inevitable 3rd act to this play as it currently is written.

Thus the only way to avoid war is if Congress takes a stand.  It's time for the Legislative branch of government to step up and limit the error of the Executive branch. Optimally, they should cancel the agreement. Minimally, edit it.

Congress can still override President Obama's veto and overturn this decree against peace in the world. May it soon be so, by the grace of God.

The Racism of a Two State Solution

Rabbi Kahane wanted to offer Arabs money to relocate from Israel and was called a racist. What then do you call those who want to relocate Jews from Judea and Samaria, the land of their forefathers, without compensation? Jews not being welcomed to remain in their homes under a proposed Fatah ruled West Bank. A true definition of apartheid, yet perhaps because it's against Jews, not enough people are speaking of it.

President Obama is mocking the memory of activists from the Civil Rights Movement.
  • 1900-54 White Democrats attempt to legalize discrimination against African Americans via Segregation in USA schools.
  • 2008-2015 An African American Democrat President attempts to encourage discrimination against Jews in the Holy Land via Segregation within said Holy Land so Arabs who never had a country there can make a country where Jews are not welcome in the very land of their forefathers. 

Attempts to make a One State Solution are falsely labeled apartheid, even if they are the antithesis.

Obama is acting like a White Democrat clone out of the 1950s, not a thinking person able to think beyond the party line. I expected more from him. Who would not.

People like Martin Luther King were not just activists but also humanitarians. They worked for the betterment of mankind, based on objective God given standards and not an arrogant agenda based solely on where they personally felt mankind needed to go. Why is this trait lacking from the White House?

God gave the Holy Land to the Jews, so let them live there in peace. Stop supporting lies against them and against the Zionist project. Because the policy of anti Zionism is apartheid and therefore anti Zionism is based in racism.

To give you a better understanding of the foundations to my perspective, I'm now in my second marriage. In my first, I was married to an Orthodox Jewish woman who happened to be African American. For the first two and half years of my life as a married man my expectation in my fulfilling the commandment of being fruitful and multiplying would be to create, in all likelihood, beautiful black Jewish babies. Unfortunately that marriage did not work out, but it still had a profound impact upon me. It also provided me with personal experience of the real world difference between racism and the absence of racism.

President Obama's current policy for Israel of a Two State solution is a racist policy. If it did not start that way, it has become so.  He needs to stand down from his current path or go down in history as a symbol of hypocrisy in governance and moral equivalence.

MAYBE a couple decades ago you could get away with supporting a Two State solution. But when not only Hamas but even Fatah intends to not allow Jewish freedom in a proposed Palestinian State or even recognize Jews in a state of their own, an imbalance against the Jews exists.  Separating my backyard from my neighbors is not racism. Segregating half of my neighbor's backyard into a backyard for me and for him, only for my benefit, is Apartheid. That is what is being suggested against the Jews of Judea and Samaria. The leaders of Israel need to accept this and incorporate it into their policy if they have not yet done so.

Obama would likely be called a racist by the time honored standards held dear to civil rights activists 65 years ago. But this need not be his legacy, he can still back off and return to the fold. May it soon be so, by the grace of God.
