There is no proof, in fact, that the Iranians are not continuing to enrich uranium, let alone proof that they have eliminated the 20 percent enriched uranium supplies they already have. Moreover, Iran had already gone beyond the 20 percent enrichment level by last year, and was hurtling towards the threshold at which it would no longer be possible to halt its progress towards military weaponry.

The deal being negotiated is for restrictions to last only for double-digit years (which presumably means 10) — after which Iran can resume its drive to create a bomb.


U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry asserted Monday in an interview with ABC News that “Israel is safer today because of the interim agreement” arranged with Iran by the United States.

There is absolutely no evidence to support that statement, but Kerry went on to make claims that he believed would do so.

“The 20 percent enriched uranium has been reduced to 0,” Kerry contended. “We have stopped the centrifuge production. We are inspecting inside of their facilities,” he maintained. “We have stopped the Arak plutonium reactor in its tracks.

Where is the proof? Natanz and Fordow are only two sites out of more than a dozen that exist in Iran – not including an entirely top secret parallel nuclear development program now currently active even as the world powers and the U.S. negotiate with Iran to halt its known nuclear activities.

“Israel is safer today and that is the standard that we will apply to any agreement going forward,” Kerry continued. “It is to guarantee that we will know that Iran cannot develop a nuclear weapon under the procedure that we’re putting in place.

Israel is anything but safe, given Iran’s galloping race towards nuclear breakout. So when John Kerry issues warnings about Israel “betraying” confidential briefings that contain classified information about negotiations with Iran — he might do better to consider where the betrayal really lies.

Iran has been really busy in “the neighborhood” helping to keep Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad in power in Damascus. In addition to funding and equipment, Iran sent consultants, personnel and even troops to help bolster Assad’s military forces when needed.

Iran has also – at last – managed to achieve its long-avowed goal of deploying its Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps along Israel’s northern border, from as far east as the Syrian Golan Heights all the way to Rosh Hanikra.

Iran was also involved – by proxy – in the latest cross-border attack on northern Israel by Lebanon-based Hezbollah terrorists, a group generously funded and equipped by Tehran.

And Iran was involved – again, by proxy – in the reconstruction of the Hamas terror tunnels in Gaza. Hamas is another beneficiary of Iran, along with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organization, an ally of Hamas.
