Trump referred JCPOA recertification to the Congress knowing it’s controlled by Israel Lobby (AIPAC) which had been campaigning against a nuclear deal with Iran since 2003. In order to take the blame himself, Trump expects Congress to re-impose additional ‘crippling sanctions’ by withholding certification which is required in the US law, and then to hope that Iran will be sufficiently fed-up to declare the agreement nil and void.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the serial liar, was the first foreign leader to bless Trump’s decision followed by Saudi ‘royals’.
Former US secretary of state, John Kerry slammed Trump over his decision claiming that it would further isolate United States at international level.
On Sunday, both German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British prime minister Theresa May said that they intend to recertify JCPOA. China, Russia and France informed Trump last week that if he pulled out of JCPOA, they wouldn’t follow him.
On Friday, European Union representative at the nuclear talk, Federica Mogherini condemned Trump for trying to sabotage JCPOA.
On October 13, 2017, Daniel Larison (Jew), senior editor The American Conservative wrote: “At first glance, the desire to undermine the agreement makes no sense. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has verified that Iran is complying with the deal’s terms in eight consecutive reports over the last two years. The agency’s inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities are among the most thorough and extensive in the world. The deal appears to be working just as its creators intended, making it practically impossible for Iran to build a nuclear weapon. Despite all that, Trump insists it is one of the worst agreements ever made. To understand why Iran hawks loathe the JCPOA so much, we have to remember that it deprived them of their main pretext for launching an attack on Iran, and as long as the deal remains intact it creates an obstacle to war and the pursuit of regime change.”
On October 6, 2017, Philip Weiss on his news website Mondoweiss named the Evildoer behind Trump’s de-certification rant – Israel and the US Jewish Lobby.
“The supporters of the JCPOA are not naming the Number One of the deal, which is Israel and its lobby. Maybe they forgot, but Netanyahu addressed Congress in 2015, trying to pre-empt the US president’s signature foreign policy achievement. Maybe they forget that president Obama stated at the height of the fight for the deal that only Israel opposed the deal openly,” said Weiss.
President Barack Obama addressing 2015 national convention of Veteran of Foreign Wars in Pittsburgh via phone, likened the US-Iran deal critics to the powerful neocons (mostly Jews) in Bushes administration, who pushed US into Iraq War based on anti-Saddam lies.
