The Israel lobby and its cohorts in the Republican party fear the arrival of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Bibi Netanyahu will soon be in America to assure members of Congress that the worst nightmare in the Middle East would be having any nation possess an atomic bomb. OH, the ONLY nation in the Middle East that currently has atomic weapons is–ISRAEL. The only three nations in the Middle East that refuse to allow inspections by the United Nations are–Israel, Iran and Syria. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has something to offer the Republican party–gobs of money from Sheldon Alderson and Jewish voters who believe any scare story from the Middle East. Iran’s Foreign Minister Javaad Zarif warned the west that failure to work out a nuclear compromise with Iran will doom the Rouhani presidency and bring to power conservatives who WILL develop atomic weapons.
A story from the past unknown to Americans. In 2001 when US troops swept into Afghanistan the Iran reform President, Khatami offered assistance, he shut the border to Taliban soldiers who were fleeing capture and he offered the following deal:
1. Iran would allow UN inspection of nuclear facilities.
2. Iran would cease arming terrorist groups.
3. Iran would recognize the state of Israel.
In return, he wanted an end to sanctions, recognition of his government and trade.
PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH REFUSED THE DEAL!!
