“DEAL” DOES NOT INSIST ON CESSATION OF NUCLEAR PROGRAM
by Sharon Rondeau
(Nov. 27, 2013) — On November 23, the Obama regime announced that an agreement had been reached with the Islamic Republic of Iran and five other countries in which Iran would allow “more inspections” of its nuclear facilities over the next six months in exchange for an easing of sanctions.
While The New York Times initially reported that the “deal” would “halt” Iran’s nuclear program, the text of the accord states that Iran has a “right” to its nuclear program provided that it is for “peaceful” purposes. During the summer of 2012, then-Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced new missile tests and threatened to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth” if Israel were to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s nuclear sites.
On September 30 during a meeting in Washington, Obama promised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the “soothing words” of Iran’s new president “must be matched with concrete action” regarding its nuclear capabilities, which began in 1957.
On November 10, just after negotiations failed to produce an agreement, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani stated that “We will not answer to any threat, sanction, humiliation or discrimination.” Rouhani’s comments appeared to contradict those he made on September 24, when he said, “Nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction have no place in Iran’s security and defense doctrine, and contradict our fundamental religious and ethical convictions.”
In 2006, the United Nations placed sanctions against the Iranian regime for failing to suspend its enrichment of uranium.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) and Netanyahu believe the agreement is a mistake because it allows Iran leverage it does not deserve.
Obama claimed that the agreement will make the U.S. and its allies safer and postpone consideration for military action against Iran for developing its nuclear capabilities over several decades. Iran has indicated a desire to destroy the state of Israel, which may now be partnering with another historic enemy, Saudi Arabia, to “contain their common enemy.”
During the negotiations, the plight of U.S. citizen Pastor Saeed Abedini, who is being held in a brutal Iranian prison for preaching Christianity after opening a “government-approved” orphanage in that nation, was apparently not raised. On Monday, Abedini’s wife told commentator Sean Hannity that following a request from the Obama regime several months ago to release her husband, he was moved to a more dangerous facility with hard-core criminals.
Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said he holds Obama personally responsible for not negotiating for Abedini’s release. On his website, Sekulow calls the omission an “appalling betrayal.”
The Abedinis have two small children who “miss him terribly.”
In other policy toward the Middle East, Obama has snubbed Netanyahu by refusing to shake his hand and abandoning him during a diplomatic visit in Washington to have dinner at the White House residence; indicated a “need” to launch a military attack on Syria for an alleged chemical-weapons attack which was not the first of its kind during the nearly-three-year civil war; proclaimed that Islam has always been a part of American history when it has not, other than as an enemy, beginning with Thomas Jefferson’s presidency; bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, something a U.S. president historically does not do; issued a stand-down order to U.S. military forces which could have made a rescue attempt after terrorists attacked a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, allowing four Americans to die and others to be seriously wounded despite reported distress calls; lied about the cause of the attack; characterized the “Arab Spring” as movement toward “democracy” while Islamic rule triumphed in Tunisia, Egypt with Obama supporting rebels in Syria comprising members of Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups calling for Islamic rule.
Egypt has since ousted former president Mohamed Morsi, who is a member of The Muslim Brotherhood and reportedly was involved in the Benghazi attack. Officials in Egypt have accused Obama of “crimes against humanity” in the aftermath of the Egyptian political turmoil.
Survivors of the Benghazi attack reportedly were “left unprepared” to defend themselves in the event of a terrorist attack on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on U.S. soil.
With Syria, it was not Obama’s idea to utilize diplomacy, which he claims will be effective in dealing with Iran. After the agreement was reached, Obama was quoted as having said, “”We cannot commit ourselves to an endless cycle of violence, and tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it’s not the right thing for our security.”
Had Obama struck Syria without congressional approval, it was reported that Articles of Impeachment would have been approved by both Democrats and Republicans against him.
According to The Jerusalem Post, an “immigration” bill passed by the U.S. Senate contains language which further expedites the entrance of Muslims to the United States after Obama issued an executive order in 2010 to “fast-track immigrants from Islamic countries.” The U.S. House of Representatives has not yet considered the Senate bill in deliberations.
An editorial in The New York Times on Wednesday contends that the agreement with Iran “does not address the nuclear threat.”
Domestically, Obama has not been known to tell the truth. The rollout of his signature health care law known as Obamacare has proved that he lied when he told Americans, “If you like your health plan, you can keep it” after millions of privately-insured individuals and families received notification that their coverage will be canceled at the end of the year. Many have found alternative plans considerably more expensive and unaffordable.
Obama has said many things while smiling.
The Obama regime is now reportedly not trusted by a majority of Americans.
Obama also claims to have been born in Hawaii despite the presentation of birth certificate images deemed fraudulent by a two-year law enforcement investigation. To date, Obama has not been charged with a crime, although investigators say they know who committed the forgery of his long-form birth certificate.
