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.
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
Beyond the Cusp
