I wrote letters to the two Senators from California yesterday and I encourage everyone to do similarly. For weeks, I’ve been commenting on news articles, posting whatever I could find on FaceBook and other sites against this pathetic “Deal” arranged by the guy in the White House and his number one (the current Secretary of State). Sorry, you’ll notice I do not use their names, they don’t deserve it. Even just saying the name of the person sitting in the White House makes my stomach ill – literally!
Anyhow, enough personal feelings! Let’s get onto the reasons the Iran deal is so harmful, and why it should not be passed by the United States Congress.
- Iran is a fundamental Islamic Republic, which means they strictly follow the Qur’an. The reason this is so bad is because their “Book” actually tells them to lie, cheat, murder and do whatever it takes to advance the cause of Islam. This is why terrorism is perfectly acceptable in their “Religion” and why blowing themselves up along with innocent people is actually considered to be one of the highest forms of religious observance. I won’t call that sacrifice, since it’s nothing like the sacrifice described by Jesus Christ in the Bible. The bottom line is, they will sign the agreement and then violate it, probably within the first week, and then they will claim they never agreed to what it says in the agreement!
- Iran’s track record (recent history, the past 30 years) is filled with violations of treaties, rules and agreements.
- Iran is the number one supporter of terrorism in our world right now today.
- Iran’s leaders have repeatedly said, on news media and live broadcasts, that they want to destroy America as well as Israel. They call the United States the “Great Satan” and Israel the “Little Satan”.
- At this point, I can now delve into reasons the agreement itself is no good. Chiefly: Though the deal was originally being negotiated to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, in its final form the agreement would allow just that when it sunsets in 10-15 years.
- This deal will accelerate regional nuclear proliferation. Saudi leaders for instance have said that this deal is worse than the nuclear pact former President Bill Clinton made with North Korea.
- Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu said this deal will give Iran “hundreds of billions of dollars to fuel their terror and military regime.” (the money will likely be used to pay for the new SAM missiles that Russia just promised Iran, the missiles that are capable of shooting down any aircraft the U.S. flies)
- Sanctions relief isn’t tied to Iran complying with the deal, meaning Iran gets massive amounts of relief before they’ve demonstrated strict adherence. (They get the money – starting right away!)
- And the money can’t be taken back once Iran gets it.
- That relief can be used to expand Iran’s malign and destabilizing influence in the region that has exacerbated sectarian conflict.
- The money can also be used to further fund Iran’s terrorist proxies like Hamas, Hezbollah, Assad, and Houthis in Yemen.
- In fact, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said that Iran will not change its anti-American policy.
- To enforce the deal, world powers must first know if Iran violated the deal but that is an unclear process that can be delayed for weeks while Iran would be able to hide and obfuscate banned activities.
- Iran doesn’t have to come clean on its past nuclear activity, leaving world powers little ability to verify future illegal advances.
- Iran’s foreign minister interprets the deal very differently than the Obama Administration does.
- For example, he believes that the scale of foreign investments would effectively prevent the world from re-imposing sanctions on Iran, making the “snapback” provision of the deal effectively meaningless.
- He also said that Iran could deny inspectors access to nuclear and military sites under the deal.
- He also said that Iran would not be violating the deal if it broke the UN resolution prohibiting the purchase of conventional arms and missiles because the arms embargo is implicitly out of the scope of the nuclear agreement.
- Even if Iran adheres to the arms embargo, the embargo is lifted in 5 years, giving Iran access not only to conventional arms to further fuel terrorism and their drive for regional dominancy.
- In 8 years, the missile ban will be removed, allowing Iran to acquire missiles that could carry nuclear payloads.
- The Obama Administration pushed for the UN to vote on the deal in an attempt to jam Americans and their elected representatives before they’ve even had a chance to review the deal.
- Iran will be allowed to conduct advanced research and development that will pave the way for centrifuges that are modern and efficient. They will be able to enrich huge amounts of Uranium that will shorten their breakout time for a bomb.
- The deal also provides sanctions relief to Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani, leader of the elite Quds force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, who is a designated terrorist who is responsible for the deaths of at least 500 U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
- On top of that, the deal lifts sanctions on two Iranian atomic scientists who worked on Iran’s illegal nuclear program and a nuclear proliferator who has previously helped smuggle nuclear components.
- The murderous Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called this deal a “great victory” and congratulated Iran on their achievement.
Do you still need more reasons? There are plenty out there! But feel free to cut-n-paste these into a letter or email or whatever to your elected representatives. Let them know – we want them to REJECT THE DEAL WITH IRAN! There is NO deal that would be a “Good” deal with Iran. We must KEEP the sanctions in place, and continue squeezing them, to try to force them to come and beg for mercy. Otherwise, they will never give up their nuclear weapons development, they will never give up sponsoring terrorism, nor will they ever stop trying to destroy the United States and Israel!
