Op-Ed: The POTUS wrote off Jewish Blood for his Pact with the Devil
Nuclear talks dependent on Iran moderating its craven conduct were never on the cards. Obama strived for one goal, and only one: to stop Iran making The Bomb. So he declaimed, fired up after announcing the deal he had set his mind on getting, come hell or high water. Finally he had chased down the devil and made a pact with it. The POTUS (president of the United States) had his signature legacy and Iran, for a time, would have no Bomb.
Tom Friedman of the New York Times talked to the President at the height of his triumph. He wanted people to know what that triumph really was. “Don’t judge me on whether this deal transforms Iran. Judge me on one thing: does the deal prevent Iran from breaking out with a nuclear weapon for the next 10 years, and is that a better outcome for America, Israel and our Arab allies than any alternative on the table?”
This table played a much bigger role than tables normally do. Above all it had to be clutter-free. Any side issue, if it offended Iran, had to be taken off the table. For that reason the issue of Americans held hostage was removed. So was Iran’s vicious rhetoric against Israel, not to mention its world-wide web of terrorism. Had America and its partners brought these and other side issues to the table, Iran would have turned around and walked away. Then it would have made The Bomb. According to Obama.
The Iranians knew one thing for certain: they’d got out of jail, not on parole, but with the license to spend one hundred fifty billion.
So mullahs and ayatollahs were free to threaten a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv. And chant death to America. Add Obama’s well-known aversion to bombs from the sky or boots on the ground, and considering the ephemeral red lines he draws, Tehran grasped that targeting Jews, or Israel itself, would invite no reprisal. To the contrary: America would protect Iran.
Had the President not looked the other way when Iran acquired ground-to-air Russian S-300 missiles that could block an Israeli assault on nuclear silos? Had he not slipped into the back of the nuclear agreement a pledge to co-operate “through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage.” Here was Obama protecting Iran from Israel. Not vice versa. It was not just the deal of the century but the swap of the century: firm friend for a reptilian foe.
From such warm mullah-coddling, the regime grasped that Obama was one hundred percent committed to making a pact. Meaning, after all was said and done, that he’d find ways to exonerate any cheating they did. So dictators would get their Bomb. And redouble their terrorism with gusto. Team Iran hooting with mirth after the nuclear deal was signed: what did it know to America’s cost? Or to the cost of Jews, alive or already killed?
The Iranians knew one thing for certain: they’d got out of jail, not on parole, but with the license to spend one hundred fifty billion. Their lot was not crime and punishment, but crime and magnificent reward. Many Jews were dead and Iran would have the means to eliminate, Allah willing, many more. Team Iran thought of its handiwork in downtown Buenos Aires, and hooted with mirth. They would have pictured a square building, now locked down like Fort Knox, with that pathetic black billboard erected by the Jews of Argentina. The eighty five names scrawled in white paint are barely legible.
