Iran Infographic: Good Deal vs Bad Deal
Josh Block, CEO and President of The Israel Project (TIP), has started an information campaign to combat the risks of the Iran nuclear talks being conducted in Geneva.
Block writes that "to help educate and fight a dangerous deal, TIP has created (an) infographic...and a website laying out the terrible impact of deal that would breathe life into Iran's economy while leaving the world's leading sponsor of terrorism with the capability to build nuclear weapons."
A spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said Thursday that the Geneva talks, which started again Wednesday, were "substantial and detailed."
While New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman has attacked the "Israel lobby" of preventing a deal with Iran, saying "I’m certain this comes less from any careful consideration of the facts and more from...(doing) whatever the Israel lobby asks them," TIP's infographic offers detailed figures and analysis of Iran's potential benefits from a bad deal.
One point raised in the graphic is that a bad deal would allow Iran time to enrich enough uranium for a nuclear bomb. The enrichment concerns are very real, particularly given that US Secretary of State John Kerry has said an interim deal will not prevent Iran from enriching uranium.
If a bad deal were to go through, Israeli experts say an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear infrastructure would be risky and complicated, but is "within reach."
The assessment comes as US security experts Tuesday warned that America is "unprepared" for an Iranian "Electromagnetic Pulse" attack.
TIP's infographic appears as follows:
