ABC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Terry Moran appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning to break the news that diplomatic talks in Geneva between Secretary Kerry and Iranian officials had broken down. But Moran appeared more interested in telling everyone just how big of a fan he was of the deal than relating other relevant facts, like the fact that Senator Kerry appeared to be offering a deal so good for Iran that even France thought it was too soft...
...Moran would go on to note that the French wanted more restrictions on Iran’s ability to enrich uranium as well as more control over a new reactor that might produce plutonium . Moran also noted, almost as an aside, that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was also strongly opposed to the deal, though Netanyahu seemed resigned to the fact that the US would eventually strike a deal.
Terry Moran is a hard-core Leftist who seems to believe, just like Neville Chamberlain, that appeasement and weakness will lead to peace. Even Iran's military is openly scoffing at that notion.
According to Fars News Agency, the regime’s outlet run by the Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, said “America’s interests and all of Israel are within the range of the Islamic Republic and there is not the slightest doubt among Iran’s armed forces to confront the American government and the Zionists (Israel).” ...
...The general mocked President Obama’s position that the military option remains on the table over Iran’s nuclear development. “If America had the ability and the will for war, it would allow no doubt in attacking Syria. America will soon find out that Iran’s power cannot be ignored.”
Israel faces an existential threat in Iran, who has threatened it with destruction for decades.
Israelis across the political spectrum are in a state of shock over a proposed deal to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for promises to partially suspend its nuclear program and a pledge to not expand it.
Acting out of a position of self-imposed weakness, the world's democracies have effectively undermined the aim of several United Nations resolutions banning any uranium enrichment. The agreement that's currently being ironed out in Geneva will allow Iran to continue to enrich but at a lower grade.
This administration is openly hostile to Israel.
Say a prayer for Israel tonight.
