'A disconnect that will live in infamy'a deal that is only supported by 21% of Americans (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
On the eve of the 14th anniversary of the worst attack ever against our nation, President Obama celebrated a nuclear pact with Iran, an Islamic theocracy whose leader calls the United States “Satan” and joins crowds in chanting “Death to America.”
A mere 21 percent of the American public supports the deal and a bipartisan majority of the Senate opposes it. Yet the filibuster rule blocked the Senate from defeating it, allowing Obama to hail the “historic step forward.”
His “victory” is a disconnect that will live in infamy.
The deal is essentially a nonaggression pact with Iran, a form of appeasement that renders unfair any further comparisons to Neville Chamberlain. At least Hitler promised peace at the 1938 Munich conference after the British leader engineered a German annexation of parts of Czechoslovakia.
Iran’s supreme leader doesn’t bother to pretend he wants peace. On the contrary, he vows that the nuclear agreement will have zero impact on the policies of the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.
Ayatollah Khamenei, who repeatedly declares that Israel will be “eliminated,” wrote just before the Senate vote that, “God willing, there will be no Zionist regime in 25 years.”
And he made it clear that Iran, which has militias and terror proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen, and supports Hamas and Hezbollah, would not be changing its stripes, writing: “During this period, the spirit of fighting, heroism and jihad will keep you worried every moment.”
Think of that: We are lifting punitive sanctions not in the aftermath of victory or as part of a comprehensive peace agreement. We, along with other so-called great powers, are unilaterally declaring peace while our adversary repeats its declaration of war against us and Israel.
Even Iranian “moderates” openly tell their allies that the $100 billion they will get from the deal will help them carry out Khamenei’s terrorist agenda.
They say these things without fear the truth will scare off Obama or turn Democrats against him.What most Americans still don't get is that this isn't stupidity. Obama is doing this on purpose out of hatred for the United States and Israel. Someday, historians will marvel at how blind party loyalty to a lame duck President overcame common sense, popular will and the self-preservation instinct.
Think about that over the Rosh HaShana holiday.
I have been having computer problems (it's going to the shop Wednesday morning), and that's why posting has been so light since I returned from the US on Thursday. In case I don't manage to post again before the holiday, I want to wish you all a Shana Tova and a Kthiva va'Chathima Tova, a Happy, Healthy, Sweet, Prosperous and Peaceful New Year.
