Earlier today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the U.S. Congress about the Iranian nuke situation, sending a clear message that Obama’s persistence in negotiating with the rogue regime is futile.
Obama is so desperate to sign a deal, any deal, even if it’s a bad deal, that he’s willing to make compromises on everything.
Recall that negotiations were going on in secret before their existence was eventually leaked in 2013. He’s extended talks twice past the original deadline set over a year ago. And each time, he makes more and more concessions, because he’s so desperate to sign an agreement.
If you ask me, one would be forgiven in thinking that Obama is perfectly willing to let Iran go nuclear.
The Israelis are terrified, rightly so. The Iranian Mullahs talk openly of destroying Israel, the only democracy in the region and America’s longtime ally.
But let’s not be naïve: Iran is a threat to far more than just Israel. If they get the bomb, they’ll be the strongest country in the region.
Will Sunni Muslim regimes respond by going nuclear as well? The Saudis – Iran’s major regional rival - reportedly bankrolled the Pakistani weapons program. Will they call in favours and acquire their own nuclear arms. Will Egypt go nuclear? What about Turkey? Obama says he’s against nuclear proliferation, but he could inadvertently be sparking a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
Make no mistake, Iran won’t hesitate to use its nuclear status to strong-arm other countries in the strategically crucial, energy rich Middle East.
The consequences of signing this deal could be devastating. Much of Congress understands this, as does Netanyahu.
I explain all the implications Obama's misguided deal would have for Israel and the rest of the region:
