Has Obama Cut a Shady Deal with Iran’s Ayatollah Kahmenei?
Ever since a ‘secret’ letter penned by U.S. President Barak Hussein Obama to the Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kahmenei, opinions on what should or should not transpire regarding the looming Iranian nuclear showdown have lit up news outlets. The letter’s alleged purpose was to proffer a deal for the US and Iran to work against ISIS in return for a November 24 Iranian nuclear deal. At the recent Israeli-American Council (AIC) conference in Washington, D.C., prominent Jewish leader, Sheldon Adelson, reportedly said in regards to Iran’s nuclear drive that words without action would be more costly to Israel and the US must therefore toughen its stance on Iran.
In the Jerusalem Post Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The international community faces a clear choice. It can cave to Iranian demands in an agreement that would be dangerous for Israel and the world or it can stand firm and insist that Iran dismantle its capacity to produce nuclear weapons.” Then there is this: “If Obama trades away Israeli and American security, that would leave a [Obama] legacy of the type Neville Chamberlain left at Munich in 1938 after the ‘peace’ he negotiated with Adolf Hitler.”
Cal Thomas reminded us of this on Fox News.Com. With White House officials claiming a US/Iran deal might happen by November’s end, speculation about Obama’s letter has run wild. Kerry insists ISIS was not involved yet the “Wall Street Journal” reported that clearly Obama believes Iran to be critical to his campaign against ISIS, both militarily and diplomatically. Should we be surprised that Middle East allies were clueless about the letter, including Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United Arab Emirates? Allies don’t like being in the dark especially when Kahmenei tweets, “This barbaric, wolf-like and infanticidal regime of Israel, which spares no crime, has no cure but to be annihilated.” And, “…the only means to confront a barbaric regime like Israel is arming the West Bank [of Israel].” Might Ayatollah’s tweets be a clue as to why Ron Fournier of the National Journal, a man who is known to defend Obama, said of him, “his approach scares me?” And why Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner says he doesn’t trust the Iranians?
Does he trust President Obama? Why would a U.S. president, the leader of the most powerful nation in the world, align himself with the likes of Kahmenei instead of Israel? Why would he undermine his Secretary of State, John Kerry, who assured Americans that there’s no connection between U.S. and Iranian talks about nuclear arms and other Middle East issues such as ISIS?
Allegedly, Obama penned three other letters to Ayatollah Kahmenei since 2009. Sending letters directly to the Supreme Leader, bypassing the Iranian president, is curious. However, Iran’s religious leader is the ultimate authority over Iran’s decisions and operations. He is also the man who repeatedly calls for Israel’s complete destruction and regards America as the “devil incarnate.” Is this Obama’s way of bowing to the Ayatollah as he bowed down in front of Saudi princes?
Where is his allegiance to America? Israeli officials consistently stand firm, including possible military action, against Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
Why is the Obama administration mute? Since when did America’s democratic allies become demoted to quasi-enemy status while an Islamic dictatorship appears promoted as a friend? We with our eyes and ears we have witnessed calls for destruction of both Israel and America from Iran’s leaders. Remember Ahmadinejad, Iran’s former president?
Do you recall his cry for the return of the Twelfth Imam during a speech in America? He seemed to swoon with his vision of the Armageddon necessary to facilitate the return of the ‘Mahdi’ who Muslims believe is the prophesied redeemer of Islam who will rule for seven, nine, or nineteen years before the Day of Judgment and will rid the world of evil. Nuclear weapons would provide the means to bring enough chaos, death and destruction to fulfill such desires. Yet, Obama and other world leaders have their heads in the sand regarding the messianic desires of those they are trying to appease.
Do they not hear or believe the evil intentions of Iran’s leaders as they spew anti-American, anti-Semitic slogans? Is Obama asleep? Or…? Clearly Iran must be stopped from possessing a nuclear bomb. Netanyahu is right in that the international community has a clear choice to either cave to a dangerous Iranian agreement or stand firm against a nuclear Iran by whatever means necessary. Anyone who truly loves God and who values freedom and democracy understands the correct choice; we cannot allow a nuclear Iran … period.
