Israeli officials are currently going berserk because the Biden administration is having a change of heart with respect to the Iran nuclear deal. The administration was reluctant to take a quick step, but recently things have been moving along—with or without Israel.

The Biden administration has already planned to meet representatives of the nuclear deal in Vienna, and Israeli officials have already declared that this position “is very troubling.”[1] The translation of this is very simple: whenever Israeli officials find a position troubling, then more than likely it will be good for much of the world. Why?

Because Israeli officials have been living a dream world since the beginning of time. They are quick to tell the entire world that Iran cannot have nuclear warheads—and Iran is not seeking any[2]—but the same officials aren’t concerned about the hundreds of nuclear warheads they already possessed.[3]

In any event, US Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley declared that the United States is seeking to get back to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). “The goal is to see whether we can agree on what steps the United States needs to take to come back into compliance with the nuclear deal and what steps Iran has to take to come back into compliance with the nuclear deal,” he said.[4] If that happens to take place, then rest assured that Israeli manipulation with respect to the Iran nuclear deal is about to then.

Malley also signals that the US will have to challenge the sanctions that the previous administration had put on Iran. The US is “going to have to lift those sanctions that are inconsistent with the deal that was reached with Iran… so that Iran enjoys the benefits that it was supposed to enjoy under the deal.”[5]

Malley’s argument makes sense. “It’s not a matter of who has the greater weight,” he continued to say. “It’s whether both sides are prepared to carry the burden that they have to come back into compliance.”[6] The Israelis, of course, had to jump in and try to screw things up. They declared:

“Nowhere in the entire interview does Malley say the goal is to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Nowhere does he accuse the Iranians of any bad behavior… Nowhere in the interview does he talk about the importance of consultations with American allies in the region.”[7]

Well, why can’t they live by the same standards? Aren’t they responsible for the deaths of dozens of Iranian scientists? Isn’t the Israeli Mossad responsible for the death of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh? Who are those people really kidding here?

  1. Trumpsters on this site will never acknowledge that Trump and Christian Zionist, Pompeo, brought us the closest to outright war with Iran and almost certainly Russia, that we’ve ever been. Trump first killed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, then he murdered General Soleimani. This was all to appease Sheldon Adelson who had thrown “30 pieces of silver” at Trump in 2016.

    This was also done to appease Trump’s Christian Zionist base who have a collective hard-on for Armageddon. Much of Malley’s challenge has been to clean up the mess that Pompeo made, and at the same time to do the “little dance” to appease Netanyahu and Likud, who had absolutely owned Trump.

    • You are spot on. We came very close to a wary with Iran, and that blow hard Pompeo is bragging that killing Soleimani actually deterred Iran from aggression. Pompeo is a psychotic liar. If we elect Pompeo as President, maybe that will be God’s ironic way of bringing Judgment to the U.S. Instead of a slowly losing our power, we will suffer a terrible loss but will also drag down many others.

  2. In my opinion this change of heart has something to do with recent China-Iran long term cooperation agreement!

  3. The best course of action for Iran is to not rely on the West and depend on its internal capabilities to become self sustaining, much like its military which as led to its independence and regional influence. Iran can do the same with its economy.

  4. The goal of the sanctions to have Iran back away from it’s areas of power (nuclear, missile, regional influence), hence weakening the nation and preparing it for destabilization and eventual regime change. Same tactics the west has used in Liya, and Iraq. A Strong Iran, not dependent on the west is what will bring about peace by kicking the US our of the region.

  5. US and Israel are using the bad cop/good cop strategy, like they’ve done before. The goal of these negotiations, as has been from the Biden Administration is to lure Iran into giving up its real assets (Nuclear in this case) for promises of sanction removal. In reality, Iran no sanction removal occurs, as the deal themselves are carefully written to ignore essential aspects, such U-turn, which means transactions with Iran must go through US dollar, or removal of sanctions only applies to nuclear aspect, meaning all sanctions can be reapplied using other excuses.

  6. Here is the plot. 1. Force Iran to kick out inspectors because the U.S., EU, and SE Asia are treating them as if they have nuclear weapons, 2. then use Iran’s logical response as evidence that they are in a mad rush to develop nuclear weapons, 3. demand that the U.S. obliterate Iran with tactical nukes.

  7. Anybody paying attention, knows what’s up over there.
    It will be easy enough to see, if and when any real change occurs.
