Nuclear Peace with Iran in our Time

The immediate choice for the world today is not between diplomacy and preventive war. We have a third option: to maintain or even increase the sanctions.
iran strong and hungry

This is the time when the entire pro-Israel community must stand together in opposition to the deal being offered the Iranians—a deal which is bad for the United States, for the West, and for Israel. The Israeli people seem united in opposition to this bad deal. The American Congress is doubtful about the deal. This is not a liberal/conservative issue. Liberals who view military action as a last resort should oppose this deal, and conservatives who fear a nuclear Iran above all else should oppose this deal. Indeed all reasonable, thinking people should understand that weakening the sanctions against Iran without demanding that they dismantle their nuclear weapons program is a prescription for disaster. Have we learned nothing from North Korea and Neville Chamberlain?

  1. Dershowitz is an over the edge liberal nut.

  2. The problem is time and honesty. If Iran makes a deal, who is to say that they intend to abide by it? Will they instead open new facilities unknown to other nations and resume enrichment? Lastly, do we even have time to implement a deal before Iran breaks out? It sounds doubtful. Sill I don't have a spy agency at my finger tips to give me their best estimates, but based on the estimates of others; time may already be up. Is a weapon being built as we talk? Who really knows? We could all be happy with a deal and then see a mushroom cloud 4 months latter. The Bible however states that Iran is around in the middle of the 7 year tribulation, so it's not likely that they will start a nuclear war at this time. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  3. When will Alan Dershowitz publicly admit that he backed the wrong candidate in 2012 by supporting President Obama as the Pro-Israel candidate? Alan Dershowitz influenced numerous Jews by his endorsement of President Obama in the 2012 election. Even if Iran obtains nuclear weapons and uses them against Israel, Alan Dershowitz probably will near admit that he made a huge mistake by supporting President Obama and indirectly aided and abetted in the destruction of Israel. Jewish blood will be on his hands!

  4. There are two ways: The US congress has to increase sanctions or Israel will strike in Iran topplening Iranian terror regime.

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Washington remains ignorant of the need to dismantle alliances with various Muslim countries.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Last week the president announced a four-point plan. Unfortunately, there’s little buy-in from our European and Middle Eastern allies. Here’s my own four-point plan that may be more palatable to our allies.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]

Just as we would never grant legitimacy to ISIS, we should not grant legitimacy to Hamas.

“Continuum of Civilianality:” Who is a civilian and who is a combatant is often a matter of degree.

But instead the UN is playing right into the hands of Hamas, by sheltering civilians right next to Hamas fighters, Hamas weapons and Hamas tunnels. Then the United Nations and the international community accuses Israel of doing precisely what Hamas intended Israel to do: namely fire at its terrorists and kill United Nations protected civilians […]

Qatar’s wealth and Turkey’s size should not preclude us from telling it as it is: Qatar and Turkey are among the worst villains in the Gaza tragedy.

Many American experts—diplomatic, nuclear, political, economic—believe that even the risks to the United States exceed the benefits.

The immediate choice for the world today is not between diplomacy and preventive war. We have a third option: to maintain or even increase the sanctions.

If the media and the international community continue to enable these tyrannical regimes, the cynical dead baby strategy will expand in scope.
