Netanyahu and AIPAC Vow to Undermine Iran Nuclear Agreement


by Stephen Lendman

(RINF) – AIPAC is an unregistered foreign agent. It operates illegally and destructively. It deplores peace. It supports wars of aggression and occupation harshness.
Netanyahu is an unindicted war criminal – a hate-mongering racist heading Israel’s fascist regime.
In less than so many words, they declared war on today’s important agreement – intending to go all out to subvert it.
AIPAC issued a statement, saying it’s committed to “ensur(ing) that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons” – despite the whole world knowing it has no intention of doing so and never did.
The organization earlier issued five “requirements…to block Iran’s (nonexistent) path to a nuclear weapon and would further entrench and empower the leading state sponsor of terror.”
Fact: The region’s notorious leading state sponsor of terrorism is Israel. AIPAC supports its worst crimes.
Fact: Iran champions peace, stability and mutual cooperation among all nations. It justifiably wants its sovereign rights respected.
AIPAC denounced Tuesday’s nuclear agreement – saying it failed to meet its “requirements.” A previous article discussed them as follows:
1. “Unrestricted inspections and verification:” It wants them “anytime, anywhere,” including military facilities no country would permit free access to.
It wants them on short-notice anywhere within Iran’s borders. “No facilities can be off-limits,” it says. “Iran must not be able to veto specific inspections.”
AIPAC wants robust inspections continued until the IAEA verifies all Iranian nuclear work is peaceful. It want Tehran’s supply chain monitored to check on whether illicit purchases are made.
AIPAC owns Congress. Any member not fully supportive of Israel is targeted for replacement.
On March 18, 2014, 391 House members sent a letter to Obama saying inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities “should include an agreement granting the IAEA necessary access to inspect all suspect sites, including military facilities.”
A same day letter signed by 83 senators said “(w)e believe Iran must…submit to a long-term and intrusive inspection and verification regime.”
On March 20, 2015, 367 House members wrote Obama saying “(a)ny inspection and verification regime must allow for short notice access to suspect locations.”
2. “Possible Military Dimensions:” AIPAC wants Iran to explain earlier nuclear weaponization efforts whether or not any existed – including revealing documents perhaps never produced.
It claims a baseline must be established from which to judge future actions.
3. No sanctions relief until “Iran complies with its commitments.” AIPAC wants stiff consequences for any violations discovered.
It wants Western-controlled monitors to be judge and jury about Iran’s well-known peaceful nuclear program.
4. “Duration: Iran’s nuclear weapons quest must be blocked for decades,” says AIPAC – to prevent Tehran from becoming a nuclear threshold state.
No evidence suggests its intention to develop nuclear weapons. AIPAC demands the impossible.
It wants Tehran to prove a negative – “that it no longer seeks a nuclear weapons capability” no evidence suggests it had in the first place.
It wants Iran’s legitimate nuclear program hamstrung – limiting its research and other essential activities needed to operate effectively.
5. “Dismantlement:” AIPAC demands Iran eliminate its essential nuclear infrastructure “so it has no path to a nuclear weapon” it has no intention to develop.
AIPAC’s notion of a “good deal” is one no responsible nations with  peaceful nuclear programs would accept – nor should they.
In less than so many words, it wants Congress to challenge Tuesday’s agreement and kill it.
So does Netanyahu. Virtually all his remarks are over-the-top, offensive and belligerent. He refuses to recognizes what was agreed on, saying:
“Israel is not bound by this deal with Iran because Iran continues to seek our destruction. We will always defend ourselves” – against invented enemies.
Fact: No Iranian political leader or its supreme leaders said they seek Israel’s destruction. Earlier comments explained its self-destructive policies. Israel is its own worst enemy.
Netanyahu bashed P5+1 countries for negotiating an important agreement if it works – if it stands the test of time.
He wants its main regional rival eliminated. Irresponsibly criticizing its legitimate nuclear program as well as falsely accusing it of terrorism and wanting Israel destroyed are thinly veiled pretexts for supporting regime change.
He lied saying “(b)y not dismantling Iran’s nuclear program, in a decade this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorism regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs. In fact an entire nuclear arsenal, with the means to deliver it. What a stunning historic mistake.”
Tuesday’s deal “reward(s) Iran…with hundreds of billions of dollars” – a “cash bonanza (to) fuel (its nonexistent) terrorism worldwide, its (nonexistent) aggression in the region, and its (nonexistent) efforts to destroy Israel, which are ongoing.”
Fact: Israel is the region’s sole nuclear armed and danger power – a rogue state partnered with America, both nations willing to wage nuclear war.
Fact: The more Netanyahu blusters, the more buffoon-like he sounds – a lunatic making absurd off-the-wall accusations the whole world knows are false, duplicitous and polar opposite reality.
His comments, AIPAC’s, and anti-Iranian congressional hardliners from both parties show Tehran what it’s up against going forward.
An accompanying article said Tuesday’s agreement isn’t a done deal. A long tough road ahead needs to be crossed successfully with no guarantees of success.

    It’s time we let the warmongering state of Israel grow up and defend it’s own space. We have been its mama since ’48 to the tune of bazillions of dollars. Enough is enough. THEY are the ones that used a age old book of nonsense to grab land from the Palestinians. I suppose they thought it belonged to them since their god told
    them it did. Enough already. You’ve grown up now, Israel. Make your own bed and stop depending on Mama to fight wars for you. Move out of the house and make your own way.

    Has Nutunyahoo had a psych evaluation lately? If so, I’d like to see the results. War-mongers should NEVER be allowed into positions of power.

  • ricksanchez1

    Given the blackmail, extortion, and illegal revelations that Tel Aviv has over our Congressmen, there’s probably no doubt that Israel wont make our Congress capitulate to any demand they ask for in the next 60 days. So… What does that mean happens? What does it mean for the US, for the other countries that signed this deal with us, and for Iran, if we assume now that Israel blows this deal wide open?

  • dovawk

    No matter what you do for this country it is never enough! It seems continually they want others to fight their wars for them. When are people going to wise up? If
    Netanyahu and AIPAC undermine the Iran Nuclear Agreement then AIPAC should be kicked out of the US and all aide stopped for Israel. From that point they are on their own. Congress, get some balls and stand up to this crap!

    • Pravda01

      Why don’t you get balls and take your gun and fight down these thugs? Even in Nazi Europe they had something you ‘Heroic’ Americans don’t have: resistance. So all Americans bear the same guilt according to the American Nuremberg protocols.

      Get some balls and go after the Jewish rodents in Congress/Senate who damage your country.

      • dovawk

        I have no fricking clue where your coming from. If your White Supremacy or Anti Semitic take your attitude and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Not going to go there. Who are you shilling for anyway?

        • stoptryanny

          Move to Israel u Pr#@k 5th columnist.

          • dovawk

            Shilling, Huh? Getting paid good?

  • greg

    If the lunatics in Israel hate this deal so much, it must be really great for the rest of the world.
    I’ve been waiting for YEARS for Israel to not get their way.

  • legal eagle

    NutYahoo is a blow hard who has no one’s interests at heart but Israel’s agenda. It is 100% narcissistic. He needs to be completely ignored and funding for the criminal state stopped forcing them to join the global populace and get along with their neighbors. Don’t know if their US lap dog can ever let that happen though.

  • Aer O’Head

    Israel (and Netanyahu) have a lot of room to talk. They don’t even know how to spell NPT and IAEA.

  • Pravda01

    I’m sure they will. Judea controlled USA/UK/Canada needs endless murder wars.

  • desertspeaks

    um how do they propose to undermine something that they are not a part of??? Oh, the way they always get things done, bribery, threats and blackmail!
