The worst nightmare for AIPAC in the United States of America has arrived. It has spent years intimidating American political leaders with stories that Iran threatens peace, not only in the Middle East, but in the world and must be halted in its nuclear programs. Republicans and Democrats are rallying behind the Israel lobby’s efforts to increase, rather than reduce sanctions upon Iran. The European Union, Russia and China are supporting efforts to compel the Iranian government to end its nuclear weapon program. President Obama has been working with these allies in order to establish a nuclear free Middle East. In the presence of UN inspectors, the Iranian government cut high level uranium enrichment. Jay Carney, speaking for the White House, noted: “these actions represent the first time in nearly a decade that Iran has verifiably enacted measures to half progress on its nuclear program and roll it back in key respects.”
This Iranian statement of compliance will not be hailed by most American Senators as representing anything other than another attempt at covering up its nuclear weapon plans. They are beholden to the Israel lobby and want votes in the 2014 campaign. Ironically, the ONLY nation in the Middle East which DOES posses nuclear weapons is -ISRAEL! And, Israel has repeatedly refused to allow UN inspectors into its facilities!
In other words, American Congressmen are NOT for a nuclear free Middle East!
