Jeb Bush on Iran deal: ‘This isn’t diplomacy – it is appeasement’

Jeb Bush 3By Lynn R. Mitchell

Presidential candidate Jeb Bush had some thoughts about the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran:

The nuclear agreement announced by the Obama Administration today is a dangerous, deeply flawed, and short sighted deal.

A comprehensive agreement should require Iran to verifiably abandon – not simply delay – its pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability.

Based on initial reports and analysis, it appears this agreement does not “cut off all of Iran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon” – in fact, over time it paves Iran’s path to a bomb. Most of the key restrictions last for only 10 to 15 years.  Even before the deal expires, it could allow Iran to develop an industrial-scale enrichment program and continue its R&D on advanced centrifuges and development of an ICBM.

Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu: ‘What a stunning, historic mistake’

Benjamin NetanyahuBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the Obama administration’s Iran deal a “stunning, historic mistake” (see Netanyahu calls Iran deal ‘historic mistake’ by Joshua Mitnick in the Wall Street Journal):

When you are willing to make an agreement at any cost, this is the result. From the initial reports we can already conclude that this agreement is an historic mistake for the world.

Far-reaching concessions have been made in all areas that were supposed to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability. In addition, Iran will receive hundreds of billions of dollars with which it can fuel its terror machine and its expansion and aggression throughout the Middle East and across the globe.

One cannot prevent an agreement when the negotiators are willing to make more and more concessions to those who, even during the talks, keep chanting: ‘Death to America.’

We knew very well that the desire to sign an agreement was stronger than anything, and therefore we did not commit to preventing an agreement.

We did commit to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, and this commitment still stands.

For Israel, the Obama administration has been considered a threat to their future. Today, that threat continues.
