In Iran the nuclear issue is not a factional or group issue. It’s a national and collective one and everyone believes in it, say Country’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.
The powerful groups that control the US foreign policy in the Middle East have jumped into the ‘nuclear arena’ as the UN security Council ratified the so-called P5+1 agreement to stop Tehran having a nuclear deterrant against Israel a few days ago. It’s reported that AIPAC plans to spend $50 million to bribe the US Congress to reject the agreement. Contrary to that, the other face of AIPAC, the so-called J-Street is running a campaign to prove that the agreement is ‘kosher’ – because Obama administration wouldn’t had agreed to it unless it’s good for Israel.
Netanyahu’s disciples in the Congress have threatened to kill the deal when it walks into Capital Hill. However, it seems to be a bluff which Barack Obama is not buying. Obama has made a counter-threat: “I will use my powers under Constitution and veto it.”
No matter which way the ‘Zionist pig’ sits – one thing is for sure, Israel will keep fabricating new lies about Iran’s cheating the agreement during the agreement’s next ten years to bring the Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran option back on US president’s table. And if you think I’m pessimistic, study US-Israel’s past record from some objective source.
Among the seven dudes negotiating the agreement in Vienna, Iranian FM, Dr. Zarif was the only one who was telling the truth about Iran’s non-existant nuclear bomb.
Another western myth that the crippling sanctions (conceived by Netanyahu 10 years ago) forced Iran to negotiate with the P5+1 world powers. Professor Muhammad Marandi (University of Tehran) in a recent panel discussion at RT (watch video below) said: “For Iran, what was important to have a peaceful nuclear program. So, the notion that Iran’s path towards a nuclear weapons is blocked is fine for Iranians because it’s not what they were doing in the first place. The biggest for Iran here was that its peaceful nuclear program, and the fuel cycle, was recognized.”
Charles Freeman Jr. former Jewish ambassador to Saudi Arabia, commenting on US-Iran agreement, said: “The agreement is meticulously negotiated framework for managing an exist from the largely pointless confrontation over an Iranian nuclear weapons program that the world’s best intelligence agencies assert doesn’t exist.”
Professor Francis Boyle (University of Illinois) says: “This an attempt by the United states to reintegrate Iran into US imperial order for the Persian Gulf.” Boyle also fears that with the gradual improvement in Iran-US relations, Iran may cut back its support for Hamas and Hizbullah against the Zionist entity. Iran could also distance itself from Assad regime in Syria. Iranian, who don’t like Taliban, may decide to agree with a long-term US-NATO forces staying in neighboring Afghanistan (here).
Israel’s 1967 war hero, late Gen. Matti Peled’s son Miko Peled posted on his blog that Iran is not a threat to Israel. He said that Netanyahu is obsessed with Iran because the latter supports both Hamas and Hizbullah, and Hizbullah has already humiliated Jewish army twice (in 2000 and 2006). Miko then explains why the US care about Netanyahu’s rants – because US law-makers are very scared of the Jewish Lobby.
