There is no question that it has become difficult to revive the nuclear deal between the United States and Iran because one is dealing with a regime that you cannot trust. It is a regime that doesn't tell the truth. We got to get this straight that Iran doesn't play by the rules.
This is the rule according to Iran: You can lie, you can cheat, it doesn't matter. Because it's for the cause of them owing a nuclear weapon.
What must be done by the West and America is that we have to be careful. We can't be fooled by this Iranian deception. Unfortunately, too many people in the Western world desire to sit down with people with suits in Iran. They are under the wrong thinking that they're dealing with real honest people.
The Iranian regime is involved in terrorism, in murdering innocent men, and women all over the region.
It is part of their DNA and their entire philosophy that America is the big Satan, and Israel is the Little Satan. When thousands of people march in the streets under the direction of the regime and the Ayatollah and burn American and Israeli flags.We need to believe what they mean.
However,If they could get away with destroying the State of Israel, that's exactly what they would do. We are dealing with a brutal regime that has no scruples. Their philosophy and their way of doing things is to destroy what Israel represents for the Jewish people. The only way and whatever they have to do serve that goal.
Sadly, the funny thing is that the Biden administration wishes that they could make a deal with Iran. In fact, they are desperate to strike that deal . They are begging to make an agreement with Iran. Ironically, people at the end don't even realise that America and Iran are not even sitting at the same table.
Strategically, this raises a critical question: How do you deal with such an important issue? We all understand that if a country like Iran is having a nuclear weapon, that prospect endangers the entire world. Firmly, we cannot permit that to happen.
No doubt, the people of Israel, and their capabilities are quite extraordinary. There are members of the Iranian regime who are murderous terrorists since they are always planning killing. Brilliantly, Israel assassinated few of them in the heart of Tehran. This shows the incredible capabilities of Israel. Necessarily, Israel will act, and there is no question about it. Personally, I believe that the Israelis are capable of dealing with the problem of Iran.
Let us look at the Obama Administration and its approach toward Iran. The money that came as part of the 2015 deal was in billions of dollars. What use it was for? Those millions of dollars went to support the terrorist organizations sponsored by Iran throughout the region. This is the philosophy of the Iranian Government. It is their religious beliefs which is to support Hezbollah, Hamas and the Houthis. They spread terrorism throughout the world.
Smartly, there is a good reason why so many of the nations of the Middle East are friendly with Israel. Israel is not a threat. It is Iran that is the threat. That is a danger to the very existence of these countries. Diplomatically, the Abraham Accords will be expanded, hopefully. I wait for the day that Saudi Arabia and Israel are friends. Tentatively, they are already working together. But when that day comes, it will be an earthquake in the Middle East. And I predict that it is coming very soon. That will be a powerful message to Iran. Iran is about the intimidation to other peaceful people. So if you permit yourself to be intimidated, you will be intimidated.
Furthermore, the Abraham Accords are a real relationship between Israel and these nations that signed it. In the Middle East, It's not just signing a peace deal with a country like Jordan. Things did not stop at such a development. Peace is a real relation involving economic, cultural, and everything else good in the world.
Recently, Israel signed a free trade agreement with The United Arab Emirates. This is the way it should be. Because of the benefits to the world that such a deal brings. Israel is a country that is always under threat. But Israel is a very powerful country capable of being helpful to all the nations of the Middle East and beyond. In truth, only good things can come from a strong relationship between Arab nations and the State of Israel.
Thoughtfully, the Palestinian issue was important. And if only the Palestinians had leadership, there could have been peace back in 1948.
This has been a tragedy for the Palestinians. People should not blame Israel. Blame the lack of Palestinian leadership. There could have been peace after the war in 1967, or when Bill Clinton was the president.
At the end, we have to be optimistic and strong, we cannot be fooled by what Iran represents. Therefore, we need to be very clear. The nations of the Middle East, Israel, and many of its neighbours recognise that a relationship with Israel is a wonderful thing for the benefit of everybody in every single way. And that will be the most powerful message for those who are the enemies of peace, those who want to destroy us. They hate what we represent in the figure of America, Israel and the moderate Islamic gulf countries.
