Kerry Ready for another ‘Framework’ to Let Iran Off the Hook

Monday, November 24th, 2014

The deadline for an agreement between the P5+1 and Iran on its nuclear development are likely to be delayed for another month as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry prepares to settle for a ”framework” that is likely to be worth as much as his “framework” for his other folly, known as the Peace Process.

As of now, there are a few hours before the Monday night “deadline,” a meaningless term since the last deadline also was extended.

The “framework” is supposed to spell out some “principles” on which Iran and the P5+1 can agree on. Iran has no problem agreeing on principles so long as they remain on paper.

Unofficial reports from Vienna are that both sides will adjourn on Monday and try again next month to reach deal that virtually everyone except the P5+1 cannot be reached unless it gives Iran a free ticket for nuclear weapon.

The Arab world, led by Saudi Arabia, do not trust Iran.

Iran does not trust Iran.

But the Western countries, led by Kerry, still “talk the talk,” believe that more talk is the solution to all problems because it prevents anybody from doing anything.

Of course, everyone including Kerry knows that Iran is working on a nuclear weapon, while Tehran insists its nuclear development is for “peaceful purposes,” which in its language means annihilating Israel so the Middle East can be made safe for an Islamic state that then can either buy up the United States or bury it, depending on the price of oil.

One western diplomat was quoted as having said on Monday, as if he hasn’t said it every day, “Some progress has been made,” whatever “progress” is supposed to mean.

Kerry and Netanyahu Update Each Other on Iran

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Saturday night traded ”updates” that represent their different positions on negotiations with Iran over its nuclear development.

The officer of the Prime Minister did not spell out what Kerry said, but, not surprisingly, talks are going nowhere fast before a Monday deadline that very well could be extended, and not for the first time. Iran likes to buy time for the obvious reason that it wants to reach the point of no return in being able to get its hands on a nuclear warhead to point at Israel and American military bases.

The Wall Street Journal quoted a senior Western diplomat Saturday that reaching a final agreement by Monday was “impossible.”

“We have reached a point in the talks where probably we can’t have an agreement without some very significant moves from the Iranians,” the diplomat said. “No one can say this is finished … The only thing is we can’t do the job for the Iranians.”

The P5+1 countries – the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China – want guarantees that Iran cannot produce enough material for a nuclear weapon in exchange for lifting economic sanctions.

Iran says it will abide by the agreement only after the sanctions are lifted.

Israel knows Iran is lying, again. The United States should now it by now, but it is so used to believing lies that it can hardly distinguish them from the truth.

Netanyahu said at the beginning of Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting, “Last night US Secretary of State John Kerry updated me on the situation in the nuclear talks with Iran. We are anxiously monitoring developments in these talks. We are holding discussions with the representatives of other major powers and are presenting them with a vigorous position to the effect that Iran must not be allowed to be determined as a nuclear threshold state.”

He reiterated the “no deal is better than a deal theme,” in the vain hope that Kerry was listening.

“There is no reason why it should be left with thousands of centrifuges that could enable it to enrich uranium for a nuclear bomb in a short time,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said. “Neither is there any reason why Iran should continue to develop intercontinental missiles, which could carry nuclear warheads, and thereby threaten the entire world.

“Therefore, no agreement at all would be preferable to a bad agreement that would endanger Israel, the Middle East and all of humanity.”

Netanyahu Warns P5+1 Iran ‘Promotes International Terrorism’

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu I sending an urgent warning letter to foreign ministers of the P5+1 countries, hell-bent to make a deal with Iran on its nuclear program.

“In that letter I bring, verbatim, the words of Iran’s ruler Ayatollah Khamenei,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said Monday evening in a statement.

The leader of this country that is depicted by some as moderate, the Islamic State of Iran, has said in the last 48 hours: –one, that he calls for the annihilation of Israel – his words, not mine;

–two, he gives nine ways and reasons of how and why Israel should be annihilated – his words, not mine.

He’s publicly calling for the annihilation of Israel as he is negotiating a nuclear deal with the P5+1 countries.

There is no moderation in Iran. It is unrepentant, unreformed; it calls for Israel’s eradication’

it promotes international terrorism, and as the IAEA report just said, it continues to deceive the international community about its nuclear weapons program.

This terrorist regime in Iran must not be allowed to become a nuclear threshold power. And I call on the P5+1 countries – don’t rush into a deal that would let Iran rush to the bomb.

Israel is Obama’s Lesser of Two Evils

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

The United States again described Israel on Thursday as “an important partner, a security partner, a friend and ally,” and that is the bottom line underneath the media madness to create a non-existent Obama-Netanyahu crisis over building for Jew in eastern Jerusalem.

A quick look at media establishment headlines would lead one to the seemingly unmistakable conclusion that President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu are at each other’s throats.

The White House and the U.S. State Dept. condemned in the strongest possible terms the latest advancement in the bureaucratic process to build more homes for Jews in Jerusalem. For the record, more than one-third of those homes actually are for Arabs, but frustrated journalists, who turn fact into fiction for the sake of their agenda, rarely want to notice the truth.

Netanyahu responded to the criticism from Washington with equally blunt terms, saying that the Obama administration “doesn’t have the facts.”

U.S. State Dept. Jen Psaki spat back Thursday, “I think we have our information clear, and we responded to the facts on the ground.

Her follow-up statement that Israel remains an ally and “that has not changed” is not just fluff.

The Palestinian Authority has thoroughly dismissed Washington as useless in its single-minded objective of finishing off Israel as a Jewish state. The Arab world never was interested in making the Palestinian Authority a new country. If it were, the Palestinian Authority could have been an independent state long ago.

The Arab world also is more concerned about wild Islamic terror and about Iran than it is about Mahmoud Abbas and a Palestinian state, which is becoming more of an expensive and untrusted baggage than a than a strategic ally.

Ever since the Saudi Arabia so-called Peace Initiative in 2002 that declared the Arab world would “normalize” relations with Israel in return for Israel’s agreeing to the well-known conditions for Zionist hari-kari, the Western world, led by the United States, has naively pursued the “two-state” solution.

Obama and his predecessors have managed to twist Israel’s weak arm to erase almost every red line to satisfy the Arab world’s insatiable appetite.

Israel in the past three years finally has found it muscle, as well as self-respect, and has stuck to a couple of red lines that are accepted by an overwhelming majority of Jews in Israel.

Mahmoud Abbas has milked the Obama Defense Minister for every concession it can wring out of Israel, where only a minute percentage would agree to the insane and impossible nightmare of expelling 300,000 Jews from neighborhoods such as Gilo, Ramot, Talpiot and French Hill in Jerusalem.

Only a minute percentage of Israelis would agree to allow mass immigration of foreign Arabs.

Abbas is finished with Obama, and the president knows it.

Abbas, his ministers, spokesmen and so-called negotiators have deposited he checks Israel has given them and now is ditching the United States in favor of the United Nations to empty out the bank.

It not only has demanded that the United Nations tell Israel to empty out the vault by 2016. Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian Authority ambassador to the United Nations, said on Thursday, “If this additional door of peace is closed before us, then we will not only join the ICC [International Criminal Court to seek accountability. We will join other treaties and agencies” and show the world “that we exist as a nation, we exist as a state although the land of our state is under occupation.”

Whether Obama’s foreign policy sages are even more dumb and blind than can be imagined, or whether they simply are smart enough to play charades and go through the emotions and stroke the Arab world’s skin of hate by criticizing Israel, Washington has given up on the idea that a two-state solution is going to protect Americans against Iran and worldwide Islamic terror.

Netanyahu Insists Military Force Needed to Stop Nuclear Iran

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

“A diplomatic solution is better than a military option but a military option is necessary for diplomacy to succeed” to prevent Iran from obtaining access to a nuclear weapon, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a Washington think tank.

Netanyahu spoke to the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution.

He added that he agreed with President Barack Obama’s preference for a diplomatic solution but that it will not work without a “credible military threat,” according to AFP.

Although a “threat” is not direct military force, it is difficult to infer that the Prime Minister meant anything other than the use of force since the radical Muslim world’s understanding of the word is inability or fear of using force.

The United States signed on with other Western powers in Geneva last November for a six-month deal, extended until this coming November, that provides that Iran would freeze or curtail some, but not all, of its nuclear development and that international sanctions would be eased.

“Steps must be taken to prevent further erosion of the sanctions because ultimately the sanctions remain an essential element of the international effort to compel Iran to dismantle its nuclear military infrastructure, to take apart all its centrifuges,” N Netanyahu said.

Iran now is again pulling out it latest trick from up its sleeve to buy off the West.

The Islamic Republic, whose stated goal is to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East, including Israel, will be happy to help the United States fight Islamic State insurgents in Iraq if the Obama administration simply would lift “all the sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear activities,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif this week.

This Purim, Jewish Think Tank Warning America About Iran

Friday, March 14th, 2014

It is not unusual for Jewish or pro-Israel groups to use the holiday of Purim to warn their constituents about the dangers of the modern Persian threat to the Jewish State.

This year, the organization Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is warning America of that danger.

On Wednesday, March 12, EMET released a video warning Americans of the history of the Iranian build-up of nuclear weapons and of its concomitant willingness to misrepresent the truth of its activities to national and international representatives seeking to dissuade the modern Persian leaders from fulfilling what those leaders see as their right.

Sarah Stern, EMET’s founder and president, spoke with The Jewish Press by telephone on Friday morning.

“Purim is very much a holiday in which we look at the masks, but we have to appreciate what lurks behind those masks,” Stern said. “We are drunk on moral relativism all year, but our lives depend on distinguishing between Mordechai and Haman. This Purim we at EMET strip away the mask and help reveal to everyone the true face of Hassan Rouhani.”

EMET wants Americans to be aware of what it calls “the disastrous nature” of the deal with Iran signed this January by the P5+1 nations, including the United States, Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany.

“Unfortunately, the six-month interim deal, whose text will not be publicly released by the Obama Administration, will provide Iran with sanctions relief amounting to ‘well more than $20 billion dollars,’ but in return gives little of any real value to the West.”

EMET claims that recent analysis reveals that even if Iran fully complies with its responsibilities under that deal, “its ability to build a nuclear weapon will be delayed for just one month.”

Americans need to take their obligations as citizens of this democratic country and inform their elected representatives in Washington, D.C. that they were elected to protect and defend and respond to their constituents, not to any particular political party or its leader, according to EMET. It is recommending that anyone concerned about the safety of their country contact their representatives in Washington and insist they ensure that Iran is prevented from developing nuclear weapons.

EMET is a Jewish, pro-Israel, non-partisan think tank and policy shop located in Washington, D.C. It is headed by Sarah Stern, who authored an article also released on March 12, “We are Still in the Iranian Crosshairs.”

Here is EMET’s video, “What’s it going to take.”
