Talks are progressing between Iran and “the international community” (i.e., the U.S.). A peaceful resolution may be on the horizon.
Israel understands that there are proposals on the table in Geneva today that would ease the pressure on Iran for concessions that are not concessions at all. This proposal would allow Iran to retain the capabilities to make nuclear weapons. Israel totally opposes these proposals. I believe that adopting them would be a mistake of historic proportions. They must be rejected outright.”
Antiwar.com’s John Glaser makes a lot of sense in reading Bibi’s anger:
Any deal with Iran, no matter how lopsided and favorable to the Western powers, would enshrine Iran’s limited enrichment program as legitimate in the eyes of the international community…In other words, a deal with Iran means Israel can’t launch an illegal war. Ouch.
Bibi’s sentiments are shared with neocon U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham:
Is the Israeli Prime Minister worried about where these talks are going? Yes. Should Americans be worried too? You better believe it.
To the contrary, Ron Paul has pointed out repeatedly that Iran is not a threat to U.S. national security. The biggest threat that we face is yet another financial crisis…not Iran.
