Jewish Congressman Nadler supports the very bad deal

Michael L.

Erica Werner and Julie Pace, writing in the Times of Israel, tell us:
iranWASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York announced Friday he is backing President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal.

"I bring to my analysis the full weight of my responsibilities as a member of Congress, and my perspective as an American Jew who is both a Democrat and a strong supporter of Israel,” Nadler said in a statement. He said that the agreement “gives us the best chance of stopping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.”
So, Nadler's view as-a-Jew is that the only way to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weaponry is to free it up to gain nuclear weaponry, if not in two years then maybe ten.  Yes, how comforting.

This Iran deal could very easily turn into an international disaster as the rest of the Middle East race to get their own nuclear weapons.  Barack Obama just a few years ago told the world that it was US policy to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weaponry.  Period.  End of story.

And then Obama marches right in to negotiations and capitulates on pretty much everything.

David Horovitz, editor-in-chief of the TOI, says that it is actually a terrific deal.  Not for the United States or the West, and certainly not for Israel, but for the Iranian regime it is toot-sweet.

Horovitz writes:
But one question can be answered with increasing confidence: Is this, as President Obama claims, the best possible deal?

Yes, indeed, it is. The best possible deal for the Iranians.

They continue enriching. They maintain their R&D to enable a speedier breakout to the bomb when they so choose. They can keep the inspectors at bay. They never have to come clean on past nuclear weapons work. They can continue missile development. They get their sanctions relief. Their coffers are swelled. The prospect of the regime being ousted by domestic reformers, already small, is reduced still further; they can now throw money at any domestic problems. They can merrily orchestrate terrorism and intimidate regional foes.
And if none of that particularly concerns you, what about this?

The editors over at Investor's Business Daily in an article entitled, Iran Is Serious About Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse Warfare, are a bit concerned about Iran's potential plans:
The American Foreign Policy Council's Amanda Azinheira wrote of the risks in Defense News on Wednesday: "A nuclear warhead detonated 18 miles off the ground anywhere over the eastern seaboard could collapse the whole eastern grid, which generates 75% of the country's electricity. The recovery time from a nationwide EMP event might be anywhere from one to 10 years. In the meantime, tens of millions of Americans would likely die from starvation and/or societal collapse."
Can you imagine what the United States would look like after losing the electric grid for ten years?

And does it make the slightest bit of sense to gamble on the question?
In his letter to Nadler, Obama emphasized US support for Israel, saying he views the country’s security as sacrosanct. 
That is a lie and Nadler is a fool.  No one who has been following this administration's attitude toward the Jewish State of Israel could possibly believe that for Barack Obama Israeli security is "sacrosanct."

The deal, however, is not just bad for Israel, it's bad for all of humanity.

And the consequences could easily be dire.


  1. I called and registered a polite disagreement with his office.

    I am not always so polite on calls like this.

    Just ask the Met.

    1. Everyone should just google the Iran deal twitter site.
      It's amazing!

    2. It's a very simple equation: If you don't believe everything Obama says on this you're the equivalent of a "flat-earther."
      Oh, and you're also an evil, warmongering neo-con. Or something.
      How dare you not trust Obama. Shame on you!

    3. Btw.
      Two US marines have been injured while "taking down" a man with a Kalashnikov ( and other weapons) on an Amsterdam - Paris train. Terrorism has not been ruled out but as yet the motives of the attacker are unknown.
      It seems that the Marines probably saved many lives.

  2. First off we have to disabuse ourselves of the fantasy that Iran 'will' become a nuclear state in 1 or 2 or 5 or 15 years. They already are. They crossed the last-screw threshold sometime before 2012 and it's fairly clear that Obama knows this and quietly endorses it.

    Secondly we have to stop worrying what as-a-Jews think do or say. We excommunicated Spinoza we can excommunicate them.

    On the other hand EMP attacks are overblown. To create one you have lob a fairly large nuke into the ionosphere. The two most well known EMP events were the The first was US Starfish Prime, June/1962 sending a 1.4Mt bomb 400km up. The second was Soviet test-184 in Oct/1962 sending a 300kt 290-300km up.

    The Iranians have the ability to launch a grapefruit sized satellite about 250km up. They claim to be able send monkeys that high but most people are skeptical.

  3. Obama says he considers Israeli security sacrosanct, and yet he is paving the way for Iran, the world's number 1 state sponsor of terrorism and an anti-Semitic theocracy which has dedicated itself to the destruction of Israel, to be a regional hegemon and nuclear power. Has anyone asked him just how that works? Are we all just too stupid to get it? Or is the greatest president of all time an ideological asshole who thinks being nice to thugs magically turns them into good boys?

  4. Bad things often happen when the purpose of doing something is more to create a legacy than fulfill the objective at hand.

    Even now Obama is cultivating his next "narrative."

    1. School,
      I'd be interested in what you mean re "next narrative."
      I read an article by Matthew Continetti which was informative.

    2. Yeah, from the NY Times several days earlier, and from having watched over the years how easily enamored masses can be used.

      Will not be surprised to see him portrayed as the most magnificent human being since Jesus.

      The policies, however, may not share such glowing fate.
