The detractors of the Iran Nuclear Treaty distort the truth to an amazing degree. Not only the leading sponsors but also the only ads broadcast on American TV are Israeli based groups. They are buying ads to be broadcast at the most expensive hours to spread Zionist propaganda. These groups are the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, United Against a Nuclear Iran and the Republican Jewish Coalition. The media reports they spend between $20 and $40 million. This “ad buy” represents blatant Israeli intrusions in the American government, and is generating unprecedented hate for Israel. Check out the Chuck Schumer backlash, for example. These ads are the source of all the misleading and alleged flaws in the treaty. This morning I listened to the Donald Trump interview on News Day with Chris Cuomo (CNN). Trump dutifully repeated gave voice to the outright lies and misleading innuendos. Some of the misleading distortions are clever. For example, International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors have to give Iran Military 24 notice and wait 24 days before inspecting a site. Everyone knows that no one can build an atomic device in 24 days; it takes more like ten years. How long has Iran been working on building an atomic energy source? How long did it take Israel to build its bomb? How long did it take North Korea to build a similar bomb? We all know the answers to those questions, which is it takes years. We went through the yellow cake lies that got us into war with Iraq. Dick Cheney made everyone believe that Hussein bought yellow cake, which is a uranium concentrate, which meant he had the atomic bomb. This criticism is pure nonsense. The release of funds associated with the lifting of sanctions is a stepwise process and not equivalent to dumping billions of dollars into the Iranian in coffers which will give it to ISIS. They forget we have a major voice in reinstituting the sanctions if they cheat, which is what the inspections are all about but also a major new story so we would know it immediately. More importantly, we are aware of the domestic situation in Iran, which is that the people of that country are demanding money for improvement in their society. If that does not happen, it will be unsettling for that government. Our objective was to weaken the Caliphate and allow the people to install their form of democracy, which is what Arab Spring is. After all, the people were the driving force for the negotiations. The idea of Israel doing the inspections is as ridiculous as it sounds. It would be like giving a bitter enemy to inspect an enemy’s war-making capability. It is amazing we have been able to negotiate the treaty in its present form, which give the western world unprecedented intrusion in the affairs of a sovereign country. If you do not believe this, think of trying to negotiate to have a group of Iranian allies inspecting Israeli defense force and their atomic faculties.
