Israeli government sources: Iranian windfall from nuke sellout is $700 billion
The windfall to Iran from the lifting of sanctions comes to $700 billion
according to Israeli government sources cited by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren.
Instead of blocking Iran’s path to nuclear weaponry, the deal, in
fact, provides two paths. Under its terms, Iran could develop advanced
centrifuges capable of enriching uranium at 20 times the current rate.
By repeatedly exploiting the 24-day head start that the deal affords
Iran before it has to let international inspectors visit a suspected
site, the ayatollahs could cheat and make a bomb well within the deal’s
10-year time frame.
Or Iran could comply with the agreement and emerge with all of
its nuclear facilities intact and thousands of advanced centrifuges that
can produce an entire arsenal of bombs in virtually no time at all.
while Iran likely chooses between these two paths to atomic bombs, its
neighbors, beginning with Saudi Arabia, would rush to acquire their own.
The result would be a strategic arms race that would transform the
already unstable Middle East into a nuclear powder keg.
interim, Iran would be released from the sanctions that took the world a
decade to impose. These cannot be “snapped back” if Iran were to
violate the deal, as its defenders contend, but reinstated only after a
lengthy international process that excludes all the contracts signed by
Iran before it were to cheat. As such, the deal serves as an incentive
for foreign companies to sign a great number of short- and medium-term
contracts with Iran. The windfall is estimated to reach $700 billion,
according to Israeli government sources.
That cash could be used
by Iran to fund its global terrorist network, its efforts to overthrow
pro-Western governments in the Middle East, and its continuing massacre
of Syrians, Palestinians and Yemenis. The money could purchase the
world’s most advanced weapons systems, all of which the deal would make
available to Iran by eventually lifting the arms embargo. Iran could
upgrade the 100,000 rockets in Hezbollah’s arsenal with independent
guidance systems capable of targeting any site in Israel — oil
refineries, airports, even the Knesset. The Jewish state will face its
first conventional strategic threat in more than 40 years.
could invest in extending the range of its intercontinental ballistic
missiles, the sole purpose of which is to carry nuclear warheads.
Intelligence sources estimate that, in a few years, Iranian ICBMs will
be able to hit the United States’ East Coast.
All of these activities could be coordinated by Iranian military
commander Qassem Suleimani and Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, father of Iran’s
nuclear weaponization program, whose United Nations sanctions reportedly
are being lifted. Meanwhile, Iran’s centrifuges would continue to spin.
And American security forces that once tried to penetrate Iran’s
nuclear program would then — astonishingly, according to the deal’s
Annex 3, Section D10 — be obligated to help protect it.
But it's okay. By the time Iran is capable of hitting the United States, President Obama and Mooch will have retired to Kenya.
What could go wrong?
