Iran Nuke Deal Brings Israel Closer to War

Obama doesn't care what happens to Israel, but Israel had better care.

Dr. Joe Tuzara,


As a consequence of President Barack Obama's acting as an agent for the Iranian regime, proposing a sham deal with no 'anywhere, anytime inspections,' including failure to completely dismantle all vestiges of Iran's military nuclear infrastructure and expansion of ballistic missile program, war with Tehran is now inevitable. 

Obama's arguments, notorious inaccuracies, distortions and lies spun with abandon to accomplish his agenda, working for a flawed deal that won't prevent Iran from acquiring atomic weapons, will not make Israel safer from the enemies committed to its destruction. 

In a speech at American University in Washington, Obama singled out Israel for its opposition to the deal, and called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s objections to the accord “wrong.” Obama denounced the deal’s opponents as “lobbyists” doling out millions of dollars to trumpet the same hawkish rhetoric that had led the United States into war with Iraq. 

This ideology-driven president "falsely advertises" the highly imperfect deal that Congress and opponents of the deal are expected to accept as a deal with Iran because there is no other alternative except another war in the Middle East. This is absolute nonsense. 

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, disputes this, saying, "We have a range of options" other than accepting Obama's deal and going to war with Iran. 

Obama cares too much about his “legacy” to care if he leaves Americans unjustly imprisoned in Iran to preserve his frivolous, ostensibly landmark deal. Now it is plainly obvious why he blames Netanyahu for having offered no alternative to a "good" deal. 

Countering Obama, Israel says it offered alternative to the Iran deal, disputing the president’s claim that 99% of world backs the Vienna agreement.

After Obama crossed his own red lines, his ridiculous singling out of the Jewish state as the only country that opposed the agreement is the height of absurdity. Coupled with Obama's ideology and lack of realism, it is very difficult to believe that Iran would not obtain nuclear weapons.

Indeed, if the deal is “very good for Israel” and it really “cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb”, why is Obama manufacturing crises and launching a desperate campaign?

Israel argues that a good deal is still possible if the international community, led by Washington, maintains the sanctions regime on Tehran. A better deal actually "blocks Iran’s path to the bomb and links the lifting of sanctions to tangible changes in Iranian behavior.”

The deal in its current form imperils the United States and puts Israel’s national security at risk. Therefore, it makes sense that regardless of political affiliations and veiled threats from the current administration, putting peace in the Middle East above partisan politics must prevail. 

Rejection of the deal doesn't mean war. Simply put, doing the right thing is to choose statesmanship over partisan politics. Despite enormous political pressure and threats from White House, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and others showed integrity and have backed out from supporting the nuclear proliferation deal. 

Unlike most democrats who are locked in to supporting the deal for a number of partisan and ideological reasons, the most prominent Democratic Jewish member of US Congress has chosen principles over political correctness. In sharp contrast, the hypocritical Obama-led world powers have chosen greed rather than principles. 

Obama is pure malevolence. He has evaporated the inspiration for many people to go on.
Despite Iran's being the leading state sponsor of global terrorism, Obama's strategy of confusion to dramatically alter the balance of power with an oppressive Islamist theocracy on the verge of threshold nuclear weapons is a mind-boggling dereliction of responsibility that could put America's interests at risk. Obama was, and is, tasked with protecting them. 

For the first time in history, an American president has legitimized an openly anti-American terrorist state to help him bolster his shallow legacy. It’s also the first time that America has surrendered to a rogue terrorist nation that openly seeks to "wipe Israel off the map" and threaten American interests worldwide.

Even worse, Obama apologists for Iran  minimize and hide Iranian threats to the United States from the American public. This is a serious strategic blunder bordering on treason by any president.

Evidence seized from the compound where Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden indicates al-Qaeda has “ongoing, deep and strategic operations with Iran.” The threat is real and yet, Obama refuses to publicly acknowledge that America faces unprecedented risks to its security.

Most disturbing, Iran's elite military unit, sponsor of terrorists groups will receive $3 billion windfall after nuclear deal. Tehran could secure a $150 billion “signing bonus” in total sanctions relief. Isn't it odd that Obama is doing this to make Israel safer?

For all we know, the lifting of sanctions is funding - directly and covertly - “waves of terror” and proxy wars toward Israel and the United States thus, making Obama complicit facilitator of the greatest purveyor of terrorism in the world.

Instead of forcing Iran to choose between survival or nuclear weapons, it's hard to believe any American president would so betray Israel and our national security interests. The moment Obama negotiated away our 'strategic alliance' with Israel it has become abundantly clear who is the real enemy of the Jewish people.

An egotistical narcissist like Obama, whose delusional perception and obsession with Iran is clear, knows exactly what he's doing, hiding behind his transformational agenda, leading the way to a world of nuclear proliferation, increased sectarian chaos, violence and never ending wars.

It’s harsh but it’s true.. Obama is pure malevolence. He has evaporated the inspiration for many people to go on. He has demoralized the entire nation, disparaged Israel and wreaked havoc across the Middle East and beyond.

If, against all odds, mysterious explosions in Iran's nuclear facilities and rash of killings of Iranian nuclear scientists resumes, you can be pretty sure that Israel is doing everything to defend itself.

Amidst Washington’s attempt to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, CBS News reported that the Obama administration pressured Israel to stop carrying out assassinations inside Iran against the country’s nuclear scientists.

In an interview with the German-language Der Spiegel, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said that [Israel] bore no responsibility "for the life expectancy of Iranian scientists."

"Ultimately it is very clear, one way or another, Iran’s military nuclear program must be stopped,” Ya’alon said. “We will act in any way and are not willing to tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. We prefer that this be done by means of sanctions, but in the end, Israel should be able to defend itself."

In essence, a better deal is possible only when the mullahs denounce terrorism, release ou hostages, stop chanting ‘Death to America,' 'Death to Israel,’ stop threatening Israel and burning our flag. Other than that, a good deal is nothing but a pipe dream.

Faced with unstoppable threats from a genocidal regime hell-bent on annihilation of Israel, the 'best defense is a good offense': If the Jewish people want peace and quiet, before it is too late, Israel will not hesitate to wage war.
