How to Measure the Arab War on Israel and Beyond


The easiest summation of intent is vocalized every Friday in the waning hours of the afternoon in Tehran and Qom, Esfahan and Bam, Shiraz and Tabriz, Mashhad and Yazd, Zahedan and Ali-Sadr when after their deep devotion sworn to Allah said in their Mosques they gather together after their prayers and as a community chant “Death to Israel” over and over and over and along with their Death to Israel, no demonstration would be complete without the accompanying “Death to America” chanted right alongside; but that is just something they chant and has no actual intent in their words, none at all as the media has quoted their leaders promising the leaders of the United States they mean them no actual harm, it is just an exercise. Unfortunately there have been no such reassurances given to Prime Minister Netanyahu or any MK in the Knesset, not even MK Tibi or MK Zoabi who one would think they might be somewhat more attuned to as they are both Arabs and anti-Zionists, but no assurances at this end. But Iran is not a problem because President Obama has addressed the possible nuclear weapons program with an inspired deal which will bring results far beyond anything his skeptics claim are the shortcomings. That will be then and I am more concerned with the now, so let the Iran deal sort itself out and allow the United States and the American electorate elect people in the upcoming 2016 election who might actually know about foreign policy and have a cogent and coherent plan and a Congress which will back that vision; until then let us address that now which I am more concerned about.


For those who are my regular readers please bear with me a moment as I review some of the things we’ve discussed this past few weeks and months. There has been a slow and steady ramping of the levels and severity of terror attacks by Arabs that the media refers to as Palestinians in the Judea, Samaria, Benyamin, East Jerusalem, Old City and let us not forget the only violence the media has cared or even bothered to report on, the Temple Mount, though their coverage has been slanted in one of the most ingenious and perverse manner possible making the victims the cause and the violent agitators the unfortunate victims with no choice beyond the route they have taken, something we will try and clarify to some extent but there are more dangerous and vitally important messages which need to be communicated as the mainstream media refuses to report the entire news. The latest development this past week was the declaration made at the United Nations by Mahmoud Abbas the day before the “Palestinian Flag” was added to the national flags raised in the front of the United Nations, the world’s highest legal body, declared that the Palestinian Authority was no longer obliged to follow or be restricted or concerned with the Oslo Accords. He then challenged the world to gift him the independent state he was all but declaring with the boundaries he will never spell out so publically but would lead to a defenseless Israel or a completely replaced Israel with the world signing off. The truth of his denial of being covered or under the obligations of the Oslo Accords may have a number of ramifications that I am hopeful there are those in the world willing to enforce the real situation of Abbas walking away from any obligations and giving up any coverage by abrogating Oslo Accords. As far as the United Nations taking any action, forget about it. The Security Council has more than sufficient veto wielding members which will desire to protect their long history of investing in Yasser Arafat and after him Mahmoud Abbas to permit anything to interfere with their influence and “friend” in the Middle East just to protect Israel, the one and only Jewish State. And as far as the General Assembly is concerned, which has in the past five years censured or condemned Israel with its own votes or the votes of its many tendrils, with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is beyond all others in these efforts; they have not even considered anything against Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, China and Russia combined. Well, so much for the objectivity of the United Nations and its tendrils.


This makes the declaration of the Palestinian Authority into existence no longer valid and the entity of the Fatah Party as nothing more than a fascinating concept used by the Oslo Accords to give the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) a political cloak of respectability and incorporated this entity as the ruling political entity in the forming of the Palestinian Authority. Finally, without the Oslo Accords there is no Palestinian Authority, no Fatah, and the PLO is now also no longer a protected and scrubbed entity and has returned to being nothing beyond what it always was, a terrorist organization, nothing less. Since this declaration of the intent to return to their terrorist past and no longer hiding behind the Oslo Accord cloak of approval there was the murder in cold blood with automatic weapons and handguns peppering the bodies of Eitam Naama Henkin with their four youngest children in the backseat witnessing the entire blood sacrifice by two Arab Palestinians who then fled into a neighboring Arab community with authorities tracking down those responsible. A witness spoke of the father riddled with bullets managing to get out of the car and open the rear door and telling his children to run before collapsing. The children aged four, seven and nine years were taken into another Israelis car and informed them of their youngest four months was still in the vehicle and they retrieved the final child.


Over this weekend there were a number of rock throwing, Molotov cocktails, fireworks fired, shootings, stabbings and other assaults too numerous to count with at least four deaths in the past week and this is just the opening few days of the final intifada which was actually declared and instigated some time back, when exactly cannot be set as it is a ramping of violence until Israel will respond and then there will be the cries of disproportional force by Israel. Well, what exactly was the situation with two young parents with a car full of young children when facing murderers with assault rifles and handguns, the stabbing victims who were unarmed and all the other victims for the past years when facing terrorists unarmed, or facing unruly mobs screaming and even striking, kicking, cursing, spiting and other insults and if they react at all the security on the Temple Mount arrests the Jews as the Jordanian Waqf has jurisdiction over the Temple Mount and they have declared that no Arab can ever commit a crime on the Temple Mount and every Jews setting foot on the Temple Mount is to be considered a criminal just because of their presence. The days after the Eitam Naama Henkin were murdered there was great commotions with dancing, candies handed out, singing and shooting rounds into the air in numerous Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem and the Palestinian areas celebrating their brave warriors and their glorious victory in their hard won fight against two unarmed Israelis as even unarmed an Israeli must be that much of a threat that they need to be shot multiple times simply driving home after visiting friends.


It is obvious even to the most casual of observers that Mahmoud Abbas used his address at the General Assembly to openly declare open warfare against Israel. The ensuing week has produced sufficient carnage and escalated violence to prove that a declaration of war was exactly what Abbas intended and is the reality Israel is facing, open warfare. Mahmoud Abbas might believe that now is the best time to attempt to ramp up confrontations with Israel as Europe will probably not be all that attentive as they are facing their own Arab refugee problem with thousands upon thousands of refugees flocking across the face of Europe and attempting to find their golden spot to settle in and enjoy all the benefits that European Socialism has to offer. The one thing which will be in the Arabs favor is that, by all appearances, Prime Minister Netanyahu appears to be overly sensitive when it comes to potentially ending up on the wrong side of President Obama and Israel defending themselves from Arab violence seems to aggravate President Obama. Perhaps Prime Minister Netanyahu should write a song of woe using the words “Rifle shots to the east of us, Rockets to the West and we’re stuck in the middle without you.” I doubt even with a song and a dance Prime Minister Netanyahu could get President Obama to sign on to any act that Israel might choose to utilize to address the heightened violence from the PLO in the east and the increasing rockets being launched from Gaza in the West.


On the other hand, this might be the perfect time for Abbas to declare war on Israel before problems get too heated in Europe as the invasion begins to explode in their faces and they start experiencing the problems which are sure to arise when the refugees realize that Europe will not be providing the panacea of privileges and support long term for them and start expecting the refugees to normalize themselves into the society. This will run afoul once the instigators who have been injected into the ranks intermingled with the refugees and what their numbers are is a complete mystery. Islamic State has announced that they intended to inject some of their own ranks to infiltrate Europe and who knows how many IRGC, Hezballah or other terror entities as this is probably the greatest opportunity as much of Europe has opened their borders or have been less than effective in keeping the refugees out of their borders, well, with a few choice exceptions who are being scolded by those nations with the open borders. It is almost like they are demanding to share the threats and misery which will result from this influx of refugees, especially when it becomes proven beyond any doubt that many of the refugees are not from Syria.


The last theory is that the Arab Palestinians are actually timing their ramping from all across Judea, Samaria, Benyamin and Jerusalem from the east with the PLO terrorists while Hamas and Islamic Jihad are escalating their rocket attacks from the west potentially in concert with directives from Iran so as to present Israel with sufficient problems while the infiltrators injected in with the refugees in order to conduct terrorist activities or even to lay wait for further instructions possibly to instigate down the road should the refugees not adjust or European hospitality not quite live up to expectations, something already occurring at some borders such as Hungary and a few other mostly eastern European nations which were originally behind the Iron Curtain. Should terrorism continue to rise in Israel including the threats be carried out for more intentional firings across the Golan Heights into the norther Galilee once again turning the heights into a shooting gallery and potentially requiring the deployment of Iron Dome units in the north. This is being threatened by the IRGC and Hezballah as a means of internationalizing the Syrian debacle and also as an attempt to force other Arab or Muslim nations to support Bashir al-Assad as he will claim that of all the forces fighting in Syria only he and his allies are attempting to fight the real enemy, Israel. With the recent news that numbers of the older T-55 and T-72 tanks, at the least seventy-five, to Hezballah presumably to fight against the Islamic State but the real target we all know is for use against Israeli armor and infantry. Add to that the latest threats from Islamic Jihad to resume suicide murders using human bombs.

Whatever happens across the world, which by all appearances has entered some alternate reality where common sense and any proportionality of problems has been skewed, it is targeting Israel, which is no surprise, but also targeting Europe and potentially the United States. As there is an abundance of refugees which will surpass the potential for Europe to have sufficient treasuries, infrastructure, housing, employment or other means of preventing the entirety of the refugees to simply settle down and live off the social safety net, a system which has served as the last ditch funding for those Europeans who have hit the hardest of times, and was not designed to accommodate tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands or even millions (that’s thousands of thousands) influx of destitute refugees. The stretching of European goodwill beyond the breaking point is likely to place Europe into an economic death spiral and sending the excess thousands or even millions to the United States will only exacerbate the problem by targeting another nation with the same social overload crisis. That leaves the question as to what will the Europeans do should the refugees become ungrateful and demand more or threaten violence which can only be pushed back for a brief period because acquiescing will only be seen as a weakness which will entice the rabble-rousers to demand more and more until they cross a line which should have never been approached and the Europeans decide it is time for the refugees to head eastward and find some accommodating Islamic nation to house them or face the wrath of a Europe stung once again leading to a greater conflagration. Once Europe explodes nobody will care what Israel must do and that is why Abbas may have had bad timing but had no choice as well. The immediate future will be reported as the caring and great Christian heart, or socialist dream being realized by all, and in a period of time the reporting will become more edgy eventually leading to reporting violence and a growing inflammation spreading across Europe aimed at the refugees demanding they return to their native lands or else, and never question a European about or else as they invented the Inquisition and specialize in World Wars. Irritating Europe has always ended poorly for all involved and with the current state of weaponry the world may not survive another world at war, honest.

Leftist Jews Refuse to Admit Jews Like Me Exist


The letter from three-hundred-forty know-it-all Rabbis just had to go and try and pretend that Jews like I and millions others just do not exist. They wrote this time to support President Obama, seemingly their idea of the perfect messiah, and to claim that any Jews who opposed his glorious Iran Nuclear Deal were an aberrant minority. Their idea that Torah instructs Jews to be socialist bleeding-hearts leftist elitists and that Tikkun Olam means to change the world to fit their leftist socialist world-views and it need start with eradicating any Jews who differ from their opinion which is simply distasteful and offensive. When a Jew such as myself would claim that Tikkun Olam actually means to repair the individual and by each person bringing themselves closer to Hashem by their daily actions and treatment of others and always giving respect and through personal fulfillment and the assisting of others in personal and communal fulfillment under Torah, they claim it means building their vision of a socialist utopia. And do not get me started on the ninety-eight Jewish Hollywood leftist extremists who speak as if their opinions should be enshrined in some holy place for people to come and find wisdom in their words because they have name recognition and popularity for their entertainment factor and this means they should lead. I would rather a hundred Kansas or other flyover country farmers lead the world than entrust it to the ninety-eight (call it a hundred for the sake of equality) Hollywood elitists who signed a letter adding their names to the din of leftist blindly supporting a deal they have been called upon to support by their infallible leader, Barack Hussein Obama.


One has to wonder how many of these wunderkind have actually read the deal and all of its accompanying documents before rushing to give support to something which is empty of any measures to judge compliance and the ones they did put in the deal may as well be voluntary as Russia, China and Iran have votes to determine if Iran is complying. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse. Additionally, Iranian security authorities have additionally insisted that all IAEA inspectors be cleared by the Iranian government. One assumes this is so if they take a wrong turn at one of the facilities and open a wrong door and spy a little something which has not been reported and signals a definitive breech of the Nuclear Agreement that they will, once instructed by the Iranian government that what they saw was a top secret experiment which has nothing to do with what they think it does and thus need not think any further of said incident and no real need to report it as it was not a part of the approved tour. What? You didn’t think that the inspectors were going to be allowed to actually inspect, did you? Of course they will have minders to assure they see all they are supposed to see and not one iota more. These inspectors will be chosen for their lack of initiative and lack of curiosity as well as their ability to follow directions explicitly and without question.



the dog and pony show, which has been the present IAEA inspections, they have been attempting for over two years to get the answer to a short list of questions pertaining to the extent of the Iranian nuclear research, enrichment and any weaponization experiments or trials. The IAEA knows that such were carried out but are unsure of the totality of the military works performed. They have also been seeking access to the Parchin military base where the IAEA knows that testing of a nuclear trigger had been carried out and the last time they inspected they found trace elements of HEU (Highly Enriched Uranium) and ever since have been attempting to return. During this time period the inspectors have been denied entrance, just as before the IAEA was permitted to inspect, the ground around the base has been replaced with fresh soil taken from a distant site. This time they have cleansed the soils twice, once more just weeks ago as if in preparation to allow inspections.

In case you may have missed the dog and pony show, which has been the present IAEA inspections, they have been attempting for over two years to get the answer to a short list of questions pertaining to the extent of the Iranian nuclear research, enrichment and any weaponization experiments or trials. The IAEA knows that such were carried out but are unsure of the totality of the military works performed. They have also been seeking access to the Parchin military base where the IAEA knows that testing of a nuclear trigger had been carried out and the last time they inspected they found trace elements of HEU (Highly Enriched Uranium) and ever since have been attempting to return. During this time period the inspectors have been denied entrance, just as before the IAEA was permitted to inspect, the ground around the base has been replaced with fresh soil taken from a distant site. This time they have cleansed the soils twice, once more just weeks ago as if in preparation to allow inspections, but we will need to wait and see. If the Iranians continue replacing the top of the sand around the buildings they might eventually bury the entire Parchin military base leaving nothing to inspect. The entirety of the nuclear agreement provides wording which calls for inspections on a regimented basis determined by the concerned nations of Iran, the United States, Britain, France, the Russian Federation, China, Germany and the European Union. There is a reference to an appendix which itself had a number of references.


Figuring the full implications and references within the agreement may all be an exercise in futility as there is, in the silenced hands of the IAEA, which the Iranians have demanded total privacy such that only those hands who drafted this second agreement are to be privy to the contents and only those select few agreed upon by all drafters would be given access to the whole or any part of the augmenting agreement, is an auxiliary agreement which modifies the currently released agreement in ways unknown and thus far undefined manner. For all anybody may know the very first line of this hidden agreement could state that it replaces the entirety of the publically released nuclear agreement and instead could add or change everything in any manner possible. President Obama has skirted any discussion of this secondary agreement which could be an alternate to or amendment of the publically released agreement. This makes any discussion of the currently debated nuclear agreement potentially a moot point as we know not what the actual agreement states and even measures or permits with its secondary augmentation agreement, though kept from the public and the Congress and even, as we were informed during Secretary of State Kerry’s testimony before the Senate, even kept from the Secretary of State who was simply not considered sufficiently discreet or necessary in the negotiations or implementation, thus left out of the loop and given a rough briefing as he had stated in testimony.


So, what could be so classified that the Secretary of State and the Congress are kept in the dark, only selected few are granted privilege to view, and a select individual or group within the IAEA are permitted knowledge and who are entrusted with guarding the secrets of the agreement II and the effects it will have on the currently debated agreement and assuring that no leaks or security breaches are permitted. So the Congress is willfully left in the dark to debate an agreement which may have been superseded by a another agreement which was molded in dark recesses and forged on a cold anvil for fear that it might see the light of day and thus be cleansed and placed honestly before the public or, at the very least, be shared with the people’s representatives who could then express their opinions. This is also a part of what the leftists claim the people must simply support on the word of the President. This agreement is to be accepted as good for Israel because President Obama, what many see as Israel’s greatest enemy to ever sit at the resolute desk and write executive orders, has stated such. One has to wonder if this nuclear deal is good for Israel in a similar manner as some of the other choice treatments the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has faced from the White House. But then some of the same people screaming against the Jews who oppose this deal calling them traitors, they were the very same ones who saw no problem when the White House arranged for the Israeli Prime Minister to enter the White House by the side delivery entrance and not the front door as the President did not wish for any to know he had met with Netanyahu.


This same President who demanded that the 1949 Armistice Lines be the basis for any border with a Palestinian government, the same President who left the Israeli Prime Minister so he could go eat dinner with his family and to even rub this in the Prime Minister’s face while demanding that Netanyahu and his advisors to do some soul-searching and to call for President Obama to return when they had changed their minds and adopted his plan where Israel simply pulled out of Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem and see if this would bring the Palestinian to cease hostilities and live side-by-side in peace and harmony. Somehow I do not see myself trusting that all is well just because the same people who have been wrong on almost every decision in foreign policy since Jimmy Carter and who have made life for Israel more difficult, even the best of the best who for Israel were actually the least worst. Every Administration since June of 1967 has demanded that Israel just surrender those small bits of land and all will be well and when that was insufficient to quiet the Arabs then it was time to demand that Israel forfeit another piece of land and when that too failed to soothe the savage beasts Israel was again demanded to withdraw from land and this would make the Arabs love Israel.


They did not. Now we are told by probably amongst the top five anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel as the Jewish state has an iron clad agreement which will prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons with which to destroy all of Israel and likely much of the United States for anywhere like ten to fifteen years as if this is supposed to make us in Israel feel all warm inside? All I wish to say at this point is if the Hollywood Jews or the three-hundred-forty Rabbis from reform, conservative and other non-Orthodox Synagogues, many in these groups care over Israel with any fervor and are more determined to grant President Obama his legacy, well, we in Israel would prefer not to become the last who resided in what once was Israel and now is used to test the lethality of the Iranian nuclear devices. But then there are those who understand that while Israel would take two and maybe three Iranian nuclear devices, it would take only one used as an EMP explosion over St. Louis at a preprogramed explosion at the height for maximum gamma radiation and EMP effect to destroy the power grid almost from coast to coast thus leading to ninety percent of the American population die from lack of food, medicine and other essentials including no clean drinking water, sewage treatment, trash pickup, and a general failure of societal structure. Even the Military, FEMA, the Center for Disease Control and numerous other agencies have all predicted such a catastrophe yet of unknown proportions after just such an attack. The lucky few will be beneath the explosion and die immediately while all the others will be left to die slow and agonizing deaths. I guess a quick flash and next thing you know you are waking up dead, a far better fate then the slow and miserable death where towards the end you are unable to move as you die from hunger, disease and declining health due to malnutrition, usually referred to as starving to death.


This, we hope, will be our final article dealing with the ratification fight in the United States as all evidence points to their potentially not having the votes to bring cloture and force a vote. This simply means those who are true believers in President Obama and his deal can simply say they wish to filibuster and the current rules of the Senate will not require them to actually filibuster but simply claim they will and the bill dies. Those opposing the deal should in this instance forget civility just as the President has done and force them to talk 24/7 until they drop or allow a vote. This will not happen and even if they manage to pass the bill President Obama has the Democrats, especially those who support Israel, especially if they are also Jewish, running scared that the entirety of the Democrat Party will come down on them and squash their reelections. The signals which have come from the Democrat leadership and many in the rank and file have indicated that those who have supported Israel may be almost beyond the cusp of acceptability as the Democrats run away from Israel seeing it as an inconvenience suffered through the past to gain Jewish votes and cash for campaigns. The Democrats have new sponsors with the monies and they wear flowing robes and look like extras from the set of Lawrence of Arabia. It was bound to happen and it only required one party to sell America out to the biggest donors and have said donor demand the death of America. The United States is now under a suicide watch just waiting for her to collapse from her own denial of her founding principles. As Jim Morrison of the Doors wrote in lyrical form,


This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes, again

Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free
Desperately in need, of some, stranger’s hand
In a, desperate land

The Best Manner to Destroy the Iran Deal


The first and most important item which our friends in the United States, and for those in the Congress who wish to oppose the Iran deal in the most effective manner still available, is they all need to understand that the United Nations Security Council Resolution has forced the hand of the United States as it passed and was enacted by the United Nations which is binding on the United States as well as the rest of the P5+1 nations and also on the European Union and all the member nations of the United Nations. Thanks to President Obama immediate actions the Congress has been basically relegated impotent when it comes to preventing the adoption of the Iran nuclear deal. Additionally, pursuing rejection of the deal against the Presidential veto, which President Barack Hussein Obama had guaranteed, is an act of pure futility and will simply open those supporting such a move to ridicule when they fail to override the Presidential veto. Even should they override the veto, the President still has the United Nations Security Council vote to implement the end to sanctions and thus again much of the media pointing out the futile waste of time and taxpayer monies by the Republicans and those select Democrats who will meet opposition backed by the party as they face what we here at BTC refer to as the Senator Joe Lieberman treatment. President Obama has taken every possible step to minimize, or even eliminate, the avenues available to the Congress or even the American people from denying the stipulation in the Iranian Nuclear Deal to terminate the sanctions placed on Iran by the United States. So, if anything the Congress can do to prevent the elimination of the existing sanctions, what should they be doing concerning the Iran Nuclear Deal and all its ramifications.


The one thing that might be to the advantage of the Congress might be instead of passing legislation killing the Iran Nuclear Deal as currently in progress, would be to allow the President to have his celebration but to not feed his triumph by passing legislation just to have President Obama veto it in an in your face mode and very publically using the media to emphasize his victory over those luddites and their feeble attempts to prevent moving forward as the Iranian Nuclear Deal allows. Simply do absolutely nothing. That is correct, nothing. Simply allow the discussion over the Iran Nuclear Deal to die a natural death and give the President a temporary victory and prepare to do something constructive and effective. Wait about six weeks until all the fervor dies down and even the longest attention spans have moved to another subject, perhaps Hilary’s e-mails, or Bernie Sanders poll numbers or whatever any of the almost dozen and a half Republican candidates have done to advance or serve a coup de grace on their campaign and may as well pack it up and better luck next time. That may not even take the full six weeks, but wait six weeks just so most everyone will believe that any new sanctions, even if they resemble the previous sanctions, as if anybody would be so knowledgeable to tell, are something being addressed over some great new information about the Iranians breaking their agreement and thus the move to new sanctions. I am sure if one were to discreetly inquire of the Israelis to provide any new information which could be used to grab the attention of the average American, something not overly technical but still a few sprinkles of scientific terms and a few ominous descriptions should be sufficient to give any hearing exactly the force and urgency required for a quick debate and vote. Applying new sanctions, not reapplying the old sanctions that the President so opposed, but new sanctions brought against new violations by Iran in their nuclear program requiring these new sanctions should be an easier sell and would also circumvent the United Nations Security Council Resolution as that was on the old sanctions and not others going forward. Then lobby and get sufficient Democrats’ votes to add to all Republican Congressional members’ votes allowing those Democrats who are hesitant to vote their conscience once there are sufficient votes assuring the new sanctions pass with a veto proof majority.


There should also be efforts to try and get the assurance from members of Congress such that if the President were to oppose the legislation and insult the Congress or otherwise be demeaning in his treatment rather than simply vetoing the legislation quietly and returning it to Congress with his reason for using his veto, then gain their assist in overriding any veto used as a weapon to insult Congress. One could even attempt to gain additional assistance in passing the legislation should the President take overt initiatives to attempt and belittle Congress or threaten any Democrat or others who are supporting new sanctions. If there has to be a fight over sanctions on Iran, make the fight about actual sanctions which are actually able to be applied to the Iranian Nuclear Program. The sanctions could even be targeted should Iran be found to avoiding IAEA inspections or seen to be utilizing every delaying tactic to deny snap inspections or otherwise working to circumvent the terms and stipulations of the Nuclear Deal, something which very likely will be suspected within a few months after the finalization and acceptance of the terms. As the Iranians pose greater and greater resistance against speedy and immediate inspections and refusal to inspection of sites despite sufficient announced inspections schedule then passing new sanctions, should “snap back” sanctions prove impossibly, should be the answer which even President Obama should support, and if not eventually public pressures will either force the President’s hand or that of the necessary members of Congress to override any veto from the White House. Forget kicking a dead horse and instead run down new threats which are sure to come from the Iranian nuclear program in the ensuing months.


Further, the Iranian nuclear program is far from the only activity being pursued by the Iranians which could bring undo attention from Congress as they arm many various terrorist or rebellious groups throughout the Middle East. Then there are the constant threats to Israel and the United States, the attempted subversions against Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, Kurdish areas, the GCC nations (Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf) and likely far more proliferate meddling once the initial inflowing of funds from the cancellation of the current sanctions and the increased income from new oil and pistachio sales. The reality may be that Iran and new Middle East turmoil may be the surprise influence on the United States elections as Iranian interference could easily begin to take violent and unpredictable turns. Iranian influence arming Hamas could result in Hamas and other supporting terror groups to be instructed to, instead of starting another rocket war with Israel, overthrow the Arab governing bodies in Judea and Samaria. Only then would they be loosed to start a terror war from both the east and the southwest against Israel. Another possibility is that Iran could place sufficient numbers of troops, predominantly from the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) in Syria and central and southern Iraq and after destroying the Islamic State then turn their forces on the Kurds or Jordan. Such an assault in any direction would depend on the United States elections and seeing if the new President will turn away from isolationist governance which would bring to an end any Islamic unfettered conquests. Only time will tell whether or not Islamic expansion will come to a definitive end once President Obama leaves office. Exactly what direction Iran will take in the next year plus until the new President is sworn into office is anyone’s guess. With a large influx of funds and their already having placed orders for the Russian S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics, two-hundred-fifty Russian highly-advanced Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 fighters as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI aircraft refueling tankers they have already bought themselves a modern Air Force. What other purchases Iran makes in the next few months may give a better lead as to what their immediate plans might be in the long run.



Pictured are the weapons systems ordered by Iran against the $150-Billion they are to receive as the sanctions are removed Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics, Russian highly-advanced Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 fighters, Russian IL78 MKI aircraft refueling tankers and Russian S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems seemingly even if the plan is rejected by the United States, Iran or even France.
