Netanyahu Blasts the Iran Agreement at the United Nations

netanyahu2Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the United Nations that “The nuclear deal with Iran doesn’t make peace more likely. By fueling Iran’s aggressions by billions of dollars in sanctions relief it makes war more likely …Israel will take whatever measures necessary to defend our state and our people.”

On October 1, 2015 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York City, just a day after Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced that he was no longer bound by the 1994 Oslo Accords. Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel of breaking international law and agreements, and announced that the Palestinian Authority no longer is committed to the very accords that created the Authority. Just after Abbas’s UN speech, the Palestine Liberation Organization flag was raised at the United Nations headquarters for the first time ever.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced that he was no longer bound by the 1994 Oslo Accords. Abbas accused Israel of breaking international law and agreements.

Benjamin Netanyahu came out swinging and began his speech by saying: “After three days of listening to world leaders praising the deal with Iran, I begin my speech by saying, ladies and gentlemen, check your enthusiasm at the door. This deal doesn’t make peace more likely. By fueling Iran’s aggressions by billions of dollars in sanctions relief it makes war more likely. In the last six months alone, since the nuclear deal’s framework was announced in Lausanne, Iran has boosted supplies of devastating weapons to Syria; sent more soldiers into Syria to prop up Assad’s brutal regime and shipped weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen, including another shipment just a few days ago. Hezbollah smuggled in SA-22 missiles to down our planes.”

During his impassioned speech Netanyahu explained that “Iran smuggled to Hezbollah missiles to accurately hit any target in Israel and aided Hamas and Islamic Jihad with armed drones in Gaza. In the Golan Heights, Iranian operatives recently fired rockets on Israel. Israel will continue to respond forcefully to any attacks to it from Syria, and will block transfer of weapons to Hezbollah through Syria.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed out very impassionately the following: “The days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies… those days are over! I know that preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons remains the official policy of the international community. But no one should question Israel’s determination to defend itself against those who seek our destruction. For in every generation there were those who rose up to destroy our people. Babylonia and Rome; Inquisition and expulsion; in modern times – pogroms and Holocaust. Yet the Jewish people persevered. And now another regime has arisen, swearing to destroy Israel. That regime would be wise to consider this: I stand here today representing Israel, a country 67 years young, but the nation state of a people nearly 4,000 years old. Yet the empires of Babylonia and Rome are not represented in this hall of nations. Neither is the ‘Thousand year Reich.’ Those seemingly invincible empires are gone, but the people of Israel lives.”

Netanyahu continued his speech by saying: “I wish I could take comfort in the claim that this deal blocks Iran’s path to nuclear weapons, but I can’t, because it doesn’t. This deal does place several constraints on Iran’s nuclear program, and rightly so. Because the international community recognizes that Iran is so dangerous. But here’s the catch: under the deal, if Iran becomes more dangerous, the most important constraints will still be lifted by year 10 and by year 15. That will place a militant Islamic terror regime weeks away from having enough fissile material for an entire arsenal of bombs. That just doesn’t make any sense.”

“The vast majority of Israelis believe that this nuclear deal with Iran is a very bad deal,” the Prime Minister told the United Nations. “And what makes matters even worse is that we see a world celebrating this bad deal; rushing to embrace and do business with a regime openly committed to our destruction. Last week, Major General Salehi, Commander of Iran’s army, proclaimed this: ‘We will annihilate Israel for sure, we are glad that we are in the forefront of executing the Supreme Leader’s order to destroy Israel,’” Netanyahu asserted.

Major General Salehi, Commander of Iran’s Army, said recently “We will annihilate Israel for sure.”

“And as for the Supreme Leader himself – a few days after the nuclear deal was announced, he released his latest book. Here it is,” stated the Prime Minister, holding up a copy of the orange and yellow book. “It’s a 400 page screed detailing his plan to destroy the state of Israel. Last month, Khamenei once again made his genocidal intentions clear before Iran’s top clerical body, the Assembly of Experts. He spoke about Israel, home to over 6 million Jews. He pledged, ‘There will be no Israel in 25 years.’”

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the bloody dictator in charge of Iran, keeps calling for the destruction of Israel and continues to say “Death to America”. He said “Even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant U.S. will not change.” He also stated that “There will be no Israel in 25 years”. Sadly, this religious fanatic feels he has defeated the Great Satan and the West with the nuclear accord that was signed.

Prime Minister Netanyahu angrily said: “Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promised to destroy my country, murder my people! And the response from this body; the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here, has been absolutely nothing. Utter silence! Deafening silence!”

At this point, Netanyahu remained silent for a full 30 seconds, to illustrate the UN’s lack of interest in the security of Israel. He then said the following: “The dreams of our people, enshrined for eternity by the great prophets of the Bible – those dreams will be fully realized only when there is peace. As the Middle East descends into chaos, Israel’s peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan are two cornerstones of stability. Israel remains committed to achieving peace with the Palestinians as well,” Netanyahu said. “Israelis know the price of war. I know the price of war. I was nearly killed in battle. I lost many friends. I lost my beloved brother Yoni. Those who know the price of war can best appreciate what the blessings of peace would mean for ourselves, our children, our grandchildren.

Netanyahu announced the following: “I am prepared to immediately, immediately, resume direct peace negotiations with the Palestinian Authority without any preconditions whatsoever. Unfortunately, President Abbas said yesterday that he is not prepared to do this. Well, I hope he changes his mind. Because I remain committed to a vision of two states for two peoples in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the Jewish state. The peace process began over two decades ago, yet despite the best efforts of six Israeli prime ministers, Rabin, Peres, Barak, Sharon, Olmert and myself, the Palestinians continually refuse to make a final peace with Israel. You heard that rejectionism yet again only yesterday from President Abbas. How can Israel make peace with a Palestinian partner who refuses to even sit at the negotiating table?”

The Prime Minister criticized the United Nations by saying the following: “The UN won’t help peace by trying to impose solutions or by encouraging Palestinian rejectionism. And the UN should do one more thing: the UN should finally rid itself of the obsessive bashing of Israel. Here’s just one absurd example of this obsession: in four years of horrific violence in Syria, more than a quarter of a million people have lost their lives. That’s more than 10 times the number of Israelis and Palestinians combined who have lost their lives in a century of conflict between us. Yet last year this assembly adopted 20 resolutions against Israel, and just one resolution about the savage slaughter in Syria. Talk about injustice! Talk about disproportionality!”

Netanyahu spoke to Congress trying to stop the disastrous nuclear deal

On March 3, 2015 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of Congress in an unsuccessful attempt to stop the disastrous nuclear treaty President Obama was negotiating with Iran. Obama ordered all members of his administration to boycott his speech. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat from Massachusetts, and about 50 Democrats in Congress did not attend. All Republicans and the rest of the Democrats were present and gave a roaring applause more than 40 times to the Prime Minister. When Netanyahu entered the chamber, he was greeted as if he were a rock star by the members of both parties. This was the third time that he had been invited to address the Congress. The only world leader that has surpassed Netanyahu was Winston Churchill.

Before discussing the immense threat of a nuclear Iran, Prime Minister Netanyahu tried to clear up the criticism by the White House regarding that his visit was political. President Obama had condemned his invitation from House Speaker John Boehner, which was extended without President Obama’s consent.

Prime Minister Netanyahu began to thank the president for the military and intelligence assistance and Congress for funding Israel’s Iron Dome. He said the following: “My friends, I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to speak for a third time before the most important legislative body in the world, the U.S. Congress. Some perceived my being here as political, that was never my intention. I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for your support for Israel, year after year, decade after decade. I know that no matter which side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.”

During his address, Netanyahu described the failure to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon as a “countdown to a nuclear nightmare,” and said he has a “profound obligation” to warn against the current deal the White House is working on with the Iranian regime. Netanyahu pointed out the following; “This is a bad deal, it’s a very bad deal, we’re better off without it. We’re told that the alternative to this deal is war. That’s just not true. The alternative to this bad deal is a much better deal.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu explained that he does not believe the current deal being negotiated will do anything to change Iran’s aggressive behavior and called on Congress and the White House to demand that Iran stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East, stop supporting terrorism around the world and to stop threatening the annihilation of Israel. He also reminded lawmakers of Iran’s responsibility in injuring and killing thousands of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan by working with al- Qaida.

“If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country,” Netanyahu said, explaining that Iran’s nuclear program can be rolled back more significantly than what’s being proposed in the current deal between the White House and the regime.

Netanyahu said the following: “I don’t believe Iran’s radical regime will change for the better after this deal. Its rapid appetite for aggression grows more every year…This deal will not change Iran for the better, it will change the Middle East for the worse. The days of the Jewish people remaining passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over. Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. I know that Israel does not stand alone, I know that America stands with Israel.”

Conclusion

This writer believes that the Iranian accord is similar to the agreement reached by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler in Munich in 1938. He agrees with the criticisms of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Republicans and some Democrats in Congress regarding the deal. He believes that the Iran nuke deal is a capitulation on the part of the United States with that terrorist regime that is destabilizing the Middle East. There are indeed many similarities between the Iranian nuclear agreement and the Munich appeasement agreement of 1938.

The Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration violated the Constitution. No matter what President Obama may say about his right to do executive international agreements or deals, he does not have the authority to negotiate treaties with other nations without the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. Article 2 Section 2 of the Constitution is very clear. It says “the president shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided that two thirds of the Senators present concur.” Obama called the negotiation with Iran and other countries “a deal” or, as the agreement is formally known as, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), but this it is still a treaty that needed the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. The negotiation process of the JCPOA was negotiated by representatives of Iran and the global powers known as the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States — plus Germany).

President Obama did not listen to the majority of the members of Congress or to the Prime Minister of Israel. Obama’s Iranian deal will provide Tehran with up to $150 billion in economic sanctions relief, nearly half of that nation’s annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which will embolden the terrorist Islamic regime to confront militarily the United States, Israel and other American allies in the region. It will destabilize the entire Middle East and it will set a nuclear race with other Arab countries which are enemies of Iran.

The fact is that Iran has been at the war with the United States since November 1979. It was an act of war when Iranians invaded the U.S. Embassy in Tehran capturing 52 embassy personnel and holding them hostages for 444 days. In 1983 Iranian operatives blew up a barrack housing U.S. Marines in Lebanon killing 241 and forcing the rest of Marines to leave Lebanon. Iran was also involved in the 1996 Khobar Towers bombings that killed 19 American airmen who were living in those towers. After the United States invasion of Iraq in March 2003, Iran armed and trained Shiite militia that attacked and killed and injured thousands in the military.

Iran was responsible for more deaths and injuries of members of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan than al-Qaeda, Sunni rebels or the Taliban. Iran provided U.S. enemies with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and bombs that were placed along roads and other areas. Iran has spilled a lot of American blood over the years. The Department of State has designated Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism for more than three decades. Yet, that nation has never been punished for killing and maiming so many of U.S. military.

Iran continues to fund and train Shiite militias, many terrorist organizations, such as Hezbollah and Hamas, and Houthi rebels who have been and continue to be responsible for many deaths in the Middle East. Iran already controls four other countries in the Middle East—Iraq, (except for the Kurdish territory), Yemen, parts of Syria and Lebanon—through its militia Hezbollah. Iran has given billions of dollars to the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad who is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands and the exile of millions of Syrians.

If and when Iran receives up to $150 billion in economic sanctions relief, it will be a greater threat to our best ally in the Middle East, Israel, as well as other U.S. allies in the region. Iran is currently funding rebel groups and terrorist organizations in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the Gaza Strip and Yemen. Beyond the Middle East, Iranian Islamic jihadist operatives have committed acts of terror in Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bulgaria, Thailand, Nigeria, India and the United States.

Iran remains the leading state–sponsor of terrorism in the world and its Islamic totalitarian regime brutally represses internal dissent. Iran continues to hold prisoners three United States citizens and continues to withhold information on the fourth U.S. citizen last seen in that nation. Obama shamefully did not demand Iran to return our citizens when his administration approved the nuclear deal.

On January 22, 2015, the experts wrote that in spite of intelligence uncertainties and unknowns about Iran’s nuclear weapons and missile programs, “We know enough now to make a prudent judgment that Iran should be regarded by national security decision makers as a nuclear missile state capable of posing an existential threat to the United States and its allies.” The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran deployed a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) “whose range far exceeds the distance between Iran and Israel, and between Iran and Europe.”

Iran has sent into orbit satellites weighing over a ton. The experts have pointed out that this means it could also deliver a nuclear warhead against the United States or any other nation on this planet. Moreover, Iran has orbited several satellites on “south polar trajectories passing over the Western Hemisphere from south to north, as if practicing to elude U.S. Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars and National Missile Defenses, which are oriented to detect and intercept threats coming from the north.”

If the Islamic regime of Iran is able to produce nuclear weapons, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei could order its military to use one of its satellites to explode at a high altitude an atomic bomb on the center of the United States. Such an explosion of a nuclear weapon detonated over the center of our beloved country will generate an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) field across all 48 contiguous states of the United States.

The electromagnetic pulse (EMP) will probably destroyed the entire national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures. Within a few months, more than 80% of the Americans will die of starvation. Of course, the United States could launch a similar strike against Iran. But, one that has to remember that in the Middle East, we are dealing with Jihadists who believe than dying for Islam will take them to Heaven. These terrorists have a culture of death. It is precisely for that reason that they feel they will defeat the West since we have a culture of life.

Is this a real danger? Absolutely! The experts have indicated that Iranian military writings describe eliminating the United States with an EMP attack. United States Representative Trent Franks in a congressional testimony given in December 2014 said that an official Iranian military document endorses making a nuclear EMP attack against the United States. The document describes the decisive effects of an EMP attack no fewer than 20 times. Iran has missiles capable of delivering a nuclear weapon. But, does Iran have a nuclear warhead?

The expert pointed out that in 2008, Mohammed ElBaradei, then director general of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), warned that Iran could develop a nuclear weapon within six months. The IAEA nuclear watchdog has repeated this warning every year since then.

The experts wrote that on January 20, 2014 former IAEA Deputy Director General Olli Heinonen warned that Iran could build a nuclear weapon in two to three weeks. He also admitted that this estimate was based only on Iran’s known capabilities — not on what Iran may be capable of doing or may already have done in secret facilities.

Iran has underground facilities suspected of being used for the development of nuclear weapons to which IAEA has been repeatedly denied access. IAEA has found out that Iran has experimented with implosion technology, necessary for making more sophisticated nuclear weapons. IAEA also discovered plans for a nuclear warhead that could fit on Iran’s missiles.

The experts wrote the following: “We know from our own experience that developing a re-entry vehicle (RV) for a nuclear missile warhead is not all that difficult. The U.S., working from scratch and using the technology of over 50 years ago, in 1955, developed its first RV for the Thor, Jupiter, and Atlas missiles in just a few years. Nor is it necessary for Iran to test a nuclear weapon in order to develop a missile warhead.”

The experts believe that Iran’s ICBM capability and their proximity to nuclear weapons necessitate that “Iran be regarded as a nuclear missile state — and as a menace to the entire world — right now.” The experts strongly recommend the following: “Congress and the Obama administration should give high priority to passage of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act and the SHIELD Act, which will protect the national electric grid and other critical infrastructures from EMP attack. Holes in the National Missile Defense need to be patched, and the U.S. nuclear deterrent modernized.” In fact, it is very alarming that these steps have not been taken much earlier since there are many nations that are capable of conducting an EMP attack, such as Russia, China, and North Korea as well as some day Iran or other radical Islamic regimes.

Time will tell if President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with the rogue regime of Iran is an accord that is worse than the one of 1938 in Munich. The leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran are aware that President Barack Obama has proven to be a terrible negotiator and a weak leader.

Obama’s nuke deal fails to meet the policy of President Ronald Reagan, “Trust but Verify,” in dealing with agreements and treaties with the Soviet Union. The IAEA have made secret side deals with Iran and had not disclosed them to the United States. One of them will, essentially, allowed Tehran to inspect itself at the Iranian military site of Parchin. How outrageous! How could the U.S. enter into such an accord with a terrorist regime which had cheated in the past and cannot be trusted? IAEA cannot inspect Parchin, a military site which was designed and operated as an explosive testing place where Iranian could detonate nuclear weapon.

Moreover Iran is threatening IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano not to disclose to the United States the secret deals regarding the future inspections. That alone should be a sufficient reason to reject the dangerous deal made with Iran! What other secrets agreements were made that seriously threaten the security of the United States and its allies?

Obama’s deal with Iran, instead of preventing war, will make war inevitable in the near future. Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress who supported dangerous deal as well as the U.S. European allies will also be responsible for the tens of thousands of future deaths and injuries. Barack Obama has made another horrible national security mistake by not allowing Congress to reject the deal and negotiate a better deal with Iran that would protect the national security United States and that of our allies.

The U.S. and its European allies as well as Israel should also consider attacking the Islamic Republic of Iran at any time if this radical regime is about to produce nuclear weapons. Additionally, these nations should target the location of the intercontinental ballistic missiles and destroy them as well. The United States should provide Israel with the most modern weapons, including state-of-the-art anti-missile missiles and deep bunker busting bombs, and join that nation in a surprise attack, if Iran is about to develop nuclear bombs and long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles that can hit the United States. In the meantime, the United States with the help of Israel should do what it can to overthrow Iran’s oppressive mullahs through a popular revolution that should be encouraged. This Islamic radical regime is a cancer in the region and it must be removed.

This writer believes that the nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration is a major disaster, especially for our ally Israel. China and Russia, which have very friendly and close relations with Iran, must be indeed very pleased. These two nations are now convinced that under Obama the United States is a superpower in retreat and that Obama is a new appeaser similar to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

One thing is certain, none of our enemies are afraid of our weak President Barack Obama. Unfortunately, our allies do not trust the president of the United States and are deeply concerned of how unreliable he is. This is especially true for Israeli leaders who are fully aware that the Iranian regime has said again and again that it wants to wipe out Israel. Obama has endangered our national security, as well as that of Israel, with this ill-fated nuclear deal with Iran.
