Modus Vivendi with Iran: It’s 1941 All Over Again

Netanyahu is a modern-day Chiang Kai-shek, seeking to be heard over the noises from his enemies and benefactors.

Our pacifist secretary of state is loosening the knot for Iran to wiggle its way out of the noose of sanctions and become a nuclear power, which will only increase Iran’s expansionist capabilities. Unlike Japan of 1941, Iran is not about to start a war, no matter how painful sanctions become, and displays of good-will gestures are not needed this time around.

Unlike the American predicament of 1941, there is no urgency to conclude an agreement in order to avoid a war. The clock is indeed running out—for Israel, at whose expense the Obama administration is trying to strike a deal with the Ayatollahs. Israel will be forced to strike sooner rather than later if the sanctions are relaxed.

Like China of 1941, Israel, the party whose very existence is at stake, is left out of the considerations, and reassurances by the Obama administration to the contrary carry with them little if any weight. Israel, like China of 1941, vehemently, abrasively, and justifiably came out against this present modus vivendi which will give the Ayatollahs a six months reprieve from their presently untenable situation.

For Israel there is only one option: it can survive only in a Middle East that is free of a nuclear Iran.

  1. Just always remember, no matter how good their offers are, obama and kerry are evil and would very much see the total collapse of Israel. The farther you can distance yourselves from these two tyrants the better.

  4. There are two ways: US congress should increase the sanctions to Iran or Israel has to strike Iran untill to topple the mullahs regime.

    Do we ever learn from history or are we doomed to repeat the same mistakes? 75 years ago, German Jews suffered Kristallnacht, the prelude to the Final Solution. Mein Kampf, written in 1925 and replete with demonization of Jews, became the Nazi bible. It was ignored by the “civilized” world. Hitler used Kristallnacht as a test of international conscience watching to see whether democratic governments would take action over the increasingly violent treatment of Germany’s Jewish minority. He got his answer when Germany suffered no serious action or condemnation, giving Hitler the green light to continue persecution of Jews. Shortly after, Chamberlain, Britain’s Prime Minister, declared “Peace in our Times”, thereby capitulating to the growing danger from a militant Germany intent on world domination. If only the world had taken on Germany in the 1930s, perhaps some 52 Million people lives could have been saved.

    Fast forward to today’s increasing danger to Israel and to the Free World in general. Are the same naïve appeasers leading the world down the path of repeating history? Iran has demonized Israel and world Jewry and is threatening to unleash nuclear devastation. Palestinians continue to delegitimize Israel, seeking its elimination. Both have announced their intentions, as did Hitler in his Mein Kampf. Yet we see a pliant American government leading the charge, accommodating the Iranian goal of attaining nuclear weapons, and emboldening the Palestinians.

    John Kerry refers to a third Intifada unless Israel allows a Palestinian state, ends its “perpetual military occupation” of Judea and Samaria, and agrees to conditions jeopardizing the Jewish State. He trashed the Oslo Peace Negotiations, in the process stating that Israel is “gonna get it”. Nothing was demanded of the Palestinians. The Administration is signaling that sanctions against Iran would be watered down on the promise that Iran will not seek nuclear weapons. Can anybody really believe that Iran will halt its development of nuclear weapons and the means of delivery?

    The Administration needs to learn from the lessons of Kristallnacht. The world, not only Israel, is in great danger from a nuclear armed Iran and a weak American foreign policy

  7. Everyone is talking about "Iran". But, "Iran" is NOT the name of the country! The official name of that country is "The Islamic Republic of Iran", and there is a world of difference between "Iran" as a nation state, and "The Islamic Republic of Iran." That difference is clear from the Preamble of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, one part of which reads a follows:

    "An Ideological Army

    In the formation and equipping of the country’s defense forces, due attention must be paid to faith and ideology as the basic criteria. Accordingly, the army of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are to be organized in conformity with this goal, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the country but also for fulfilling the ideological mission of jihad in God’s way; that is, extending the sovereignty of God’s law throughout the world (this is in accordance with the Koranic verse “Prepare against them whatever force you are able to muster, and strings of horses, striking fear into the enemy of God and your enemy, and others besides them.” [8.60])"

    To ask the Ayatollahs to give up their ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons is asking them to violate their Constitution and their Koran which requires them to acquire "whatever force you are able to muster" in order to extend Sharia law throughout the world. It won't happen. Negotiations are worse than fruitless.They permit the ayatollahs to acquire their nuclear weapons.
