Obama's defense of the Iran treaty seems excessive and unnecessary

Reader comment on item: If Tehran Turns Down the Nuclear Deal

Submitted by Kenneth Besig (Israel), Aug 23, 2015 at 11:51

Dear Dr. Pipes, You write as if there is any

chance of rejecting this terrible agreement. You are wrong, the Vienna

Treaty is now the law of the land, and it is already taking effect. The

EU, China, and Russia are already inking economic and trade

agreements with Iran, and Mr. Obama has promised not to prosecute

American businesses which trade with Iran. The sanctions which

were meant to deter Iranian non compliance are effectively dead

letters, and for the future, almost incredibly, it will be up to the

Iranians to determine if they themselves are in non compliance, a very

unlikely possibility indeed! Pretty awful to contemplate.

Mr. Obama has cleverly inflicted a document of capitulation on

mankind which will economically enrich Iran, grant Iran total

international legitimacy, allow for Iran to both develop nuclear

weapons and the ballistic missiles to carry those nukes to any target

on the planet. And fund all their terrorist activities! Pretty awful to


And in spite of all those brave attempts to derail the treaty, the

tragic fact is that even if the American Congress and the Iranians

reject the deal, the Treaty has already gone into effect. China and

Russia have already stated that the sanctions regime against Iran no

longer exists for them. Pretty awful to contemplate!

So given that the Vienna Treaty is a fait accompli, I ask why Mr.

Obama continues his mean spirited defense of the thing and what

benefit he expects if he singles out and insults the American Jewish

Community with phony charges of dual loyalty, describing PM

Netanyahu as a warmonger, and painting Israel as the only country

with objections to the treaty? I cannot think of any benefit that would

accrue from this.

However I hope and pray that Obama's publicly anti Israel and anti

Jewish remarks, (some even made directly to big Jewish donors to

the Democrats,) and Obama's almost anti Semitic rhetoric in regards

to this treaty will dissuade American Jews from ever voting

Democratic ever again! Pretty awful to contemplate!

The reality is that this treaty poses an immediate existential danger for

Israel, and by extension, much of mankind. There is now a chance

that even the most liberal American Jew will begin to see that

President Barack Hussein Obama and his Leftist Democrat Party

really are deeply hostile to Israel and that they hold the American

Jewish Community in contempt!

As of last week, the countdown to an Iranian nuclear attack on

Israel began, and this countdown may force our Israeli military to

launch a preventive attack. This attack will not be by our choice but

rather the only rational response that Obama has left us.
