President Barack Obama once again received evidence the Israel lobby is alive and well in the United States of America. Of course, any lobby whose main goal is to further the interests of a foreign government might be considered by the American public in a negative light, but AIPAC is the friend of both Republicans and Democrats when it comes to issues of raising money for political campaigns. A group of twenty three Democratic Senators including one independent, sent a letter to the president acknowledging they support his two thronged approach to Iran, political and threats. They want guarantees that any final agreement contains absolute guarantees that Iran is not engaged with enrichment for development of nuclear weapons. They agree Iran should have the right to develop domestic nuclear materials.
OK, both the president and this blog agree with this demand. No intelligent person could disagree with preventing use of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Of course, it might assist in this effort if Israel, the ONLY Middle Eastern nation possessing nuclear weapons, might reduce their nuclear weapon build up by a dozen or so nuclear weapons in a demonstration of peace and security for all.
