Iran Deal Is "Historic Mistake"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the new agreement over Iran's nuclear program is a "mistake of historic proportions."


Negotiators officially announced a historical agreement over Iran's nuclear program on Tuesday afternoon, sparking reactions of confidence from US President Barack Obama and dire warnings from Israeli officials.

Obama addressed the nation just over an hour after the official announcement saying that he would veto any legislation aimed at blocking the deal in Congress, and continued to say that a nuclear-armed Iran was far more destabilizing than a non-nuclear Iran.

Obama also stated that the deal prevented the spread of nuclear weapons in the most volatile region in the world, the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials reacted negatively with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leading the pack. "Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons," said Netanyahu. "Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted.

"Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world. This is a bad mistake of historic proportions."

Yisrael Beytenu Chairman and former foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman also reacted to the confirmation of a deal, calling it a danger for the future. "History will remember the Iran deal just like the Munich Agreement (with Nazi Germany) and the agreement with North Korea," said Lieberman.

In a speech to the citizens of Iran President Hassan Rouhani said, "We didn't ask for charity. We asked for fair, just, and win-win negotiations."

Rouhani then added that the powers' sanctions regime never worked on Iran.

The Iranian president also had a dig at Israel, saying: "Today the people of Gaza, Lebanon, Qods (Jerusalem) and West Bank are also happy because the endeavors of the Zionist regime were defeated."

"Neighboring countries! Do not be deceived by the Zionist regime," he went on.

The Iranian state news agency reported that under the current deal, all Iranian nuclear facilities will remain up and running and research on key centrifuges will continue.

The news agency also said that bans on Iran purchasing certain dual-use machinery and technology will also end. EU and US economic sanctions are also set to be lifted with the implementation of the agreement according to report.

According to diplomatic sources, the deal includes a compromise between Washington and Tehran that would allow UN inspectors to press for visits to Iranian military sites as part of their monitoring duties.

But access at will to any site would not necessarily be granted and even if so, could be delayed, a condition that critics of the deal are sure to seize on as possibly giving Tehran time to cover any sign of non-compliance with its commitments.

Under the deal, the source said Tehran would have the right to challenge the UN request and an arbitration board composed of Iran and the six world powers that negotiated with it would have to decide on the issue.

Boruch Hashem that...
'The Eyes of Hashem your G-d are upon Eretz Yisroel from the beginning of the year until after the year.'

And of-course 'The heart of kings and ministers is in the Hand of Hashem.'

For the enemies of goodness this is the calm, the perceived safety and security for them, before the storm to come.

This is a precursor to usher in an unfolding of historic proportions to follow, which will increase goodness and security for His People especially.

Enjoy the Show!

Israel is actually safe, being small and surrounded as it is by so many countries, all of whom would be affected by any nuclear offensive against Israel c"v. Furthermore, it's anti-missile technology is hopefully equipped to send such missiles right back to their source.

Today's verses of Tehillim:
For the year [5775, being the 5th in sequences of 5] we begin from the 5th book {Chapter 107}, progressing to the 10th chapter for the month {Chapter 116} and the 27th verse for the day, bringing us to Chapter 118 Verse 6:

"Hashem is for me; I shall not fear. What can man do to me?!" - The message couldn't be clearer.

For a deeper message:

(For the year [5+7+7+5 = 24] we begin from the 4th book {Chapter 90} progressing to the 10th chapter for the month {Chapter 99} and the 27th verse for the day, bringing us to
Chapter 102 Verse 5)

"Beaten like grass and withered is my heart, for I have forgotten to eat my bread." - Strengthen yourself with Torah (exemplified by bread).

Even deeper:

(For the year [5+7+7+5 = 2+4 = 6] we begin from the 1st book {Chapter 1} progressing to the 10th chapter for the month {Chapter 10} and the 27th verse for the day, bringing us to Chapter 12 Verse 2:)

"Save, Hashem, for the pious are gone, for the faithful have vanished from the sons of men." - Pray to Hashem, for He is our protection and salvation.

Besuros Tovos.

That is unfortunately, a stupid comment. Iran doesn't really care about their own sel existence, in their eyes, a one for one - especially a nuke is WORTHWHILE! They don't care if they get hit back, nor if they hurt any of the neighbors, as long as Israel is ch"v wiped off the map. It's the same with Hamas and human shields, or suicide bombers, they don't care about their own civilians lives as long as Israel is gone ch"v.
The only good thing In this world is that we have an aibishter whih looks over us. But naturally/al pi derech hateva, the situation is pretty bad.

To follow #3
Tanya chap. 5 explains that Torah in the sense of bread refers specifically to grasp/comprehension of Halachah through Mishna, Gemoro & Poskim (and certainly Shulchan Aruch as well).

Hatzlochoh Raboh.

Not so stupid. The arabs do send suicide bombers r"l but the guys in charge like to live the good life in their palaces on a greater scale than celebrity America and they also keep up the diplomatic ties that suit them at any given time with their arab neighbors.

#6 1st of all the iranians are not arabs. 2nd Hamas are sunni muslims whereas the Iranians are shia muslims. The iranian shia muslims are more fanatical because their ideology is messianic and centred around th e coming of the 12th Imam. They are convinced that the only way this messianic figure could come is through all out war with the enemey and a subsequent armagaddon which would include their own destruction. Its a suicidal ideology that keeps israels leaders up at night

The TRUE religion

It's time for us to assert ourselves.

This is basically a religious war; who is the true religion? Is it Xianity, Islam, moral relativism, political correctness, atheism, alternative lifesyles (the new Unites States), or Judaism?
Well, it seems that Islam, moral relatavism, pc, and alternative agendas, are fighting a fierce battle for world domination. At the rate were going, the world
is in for some cataclysmic times. Already, America is in
a fast, downward spiral because, in the name of "all people are equal", some rogue "civil rights" equivalents sapped every vestige of morality that this country was founded on.

When the Moshiach comes, we are going to get back the lands of ancient Israel, and the spirit of Israel will spread around the world. Any reason not to start the process now and assert ourselves, especially being more proactive with the Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach?
I mean, say it like it is, we are the true religion, and the rest of the world should submit unto us FEW.
If that happens, finally, we will, finally, have world peace.

I remember
I remember the nuclear deal with North Korea, was so happy nuclear weapons would not get into the hands of those crazies - Oh, wait a second, they have nukes, how did that happen, after all, there was a deal in place! When I read that one of the chief architects of the N. Korea deal was involved in drafting the Iran deal I almost fell out of my chair. not sure whether to laugh or cry...
