Video: Iranian political analyst compares P 5+1 agreement to Treaty of Hudaybiyyah

On Syrian television last week, an Iranian political analyst compared the P 5+1 agreement with Iran to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, which, Muslim tradition tells us, the Prophet Muhammad had signed with a rival tribe called the Quraysh out of tactical necessity. Two years later, by most accounts, a stronger Muhammad, citing a violation by the Quraysh as pretext, saw to it that the treaty was dissolved. He then defeated his enemy. Is Iran signaling to Muslim audiences that even if it came to an agreement on its nuclear weapons development program, they shouldn't fear, because an agreement with Israel wouldn't last forever?

Let's go to the videotape. The comparison is around the 2:10 mark.
