Why Are We Trusting Iran?

This week, NBC reporter, Ann Curry, interviewed Iran’s Foreign Minister, Javid Zarif. In the interview, Zarif claims that Iran is very close to a nuke deal. He also states that the Netanyahu regime should be annihilated. He goes on to add that Iran does not want to kill Jews. “After all,” he reminds us. “There are Jews in Iran.” But upon further questioning, Zarif clarifies that he just wants to annihilate the State of Israel (which, by the way, is the world’s largest concentration of Jews).

Here is a section of Ann Curry’s exchange with Javid Zarif:

ANN CURRY: So how does Iran want to annihilate the regime of Israel, since you’re making the difference?

JAVAD ZARIF: We don’t want to annihilate. We don’t want to–

ANN CURRY: Well, the Supreme Leader–

JAVAD ZARIF: –annihilate anybody.

ANN CURRY: –tweeted that–

JAVAD ZARIF: We have– the– well, what he says–

ANN CURRY: –it should be annihilated.

JAVAD ZARIF: It– it should be annihilated. That this regime is a threat, is a threat…

In typical Obama-esque spin technique, Iran is spinning their verbiage to reflect that Benjamin Netanyahu is the biggest threat to peace – not Iran.

Why are we negotiating with these people? We should be posing stiff sanctions and insisting on a complete eradication of their nuclear program, as they clearly cannot be trusted.

A Practical Alternative

According to the Times of Israel:

“Netanyahu said he presented “a practical alternative” to the deal six world powers under American leadership  — the so-called P5+1 — are currently discussing with the Islamic Republic by imposing tougher restrictions on its nuclear program. He said he called for the extension “by years” of Iran’s breakout time, or the time it would need to amass enough enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb to several years, in case Iran were to violate the agreement.  Rebutting Obama, PM says he offered 'practical alternatives' to Iran deal .”

Quoting Netanyahu:

“I also called on the P5+1 to insist on a deal that would link the lifting of those restrictions to Iran’s ceasing its sponsorship of terrorism around the world, its aggression against its neighbors and its calls for Israel’s destruction.”

The White House is claiming that Prime Minister’s Speech to Congress yesterday offered no viable alternatives to the deal currently on the table.

But I would beg to disagree.

Netanyahu’s Warning

It is a sad state of affairs when our biggest ally must come to the our country to defend itself from our actions that could potentially bring about its complete destruction. This is precisely what Bibi Netanyahu did this morning.

In his address to the joint session of Congress this morning he warned of two major concessions that the U.S. is proposing in its nuclear deal with Iran:

1.       It would not destroy any of Iran’s nuclear facilities, thus leaving in place a vast nuclear infrastructure. Some centrifuges would be allowed to continue running, while others were simply disconnected; and

2.      All of the restrictions would automatically expire in around 10 years.

If Iran is allowed to prevail in its ability to enrich uranium, we will be looking at another arms race and the potential destruction of Israel.
