Iranian Nuke Deal "Stunning Historic Mistake"

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu says President Obama's "deal" with Iran is a "stunning historic mistake."

The Prime Minister says, "While negotiators were closing the deal in Vienna, Iran's supposedly moderate president chose to go to a rally in Tehran, and at this rally, a frenzied mob burned American and Israeli flags and chanted 'Death to America and Death to Israel'."

President Obama told the world, "Iran's path to a nuclear weapon has been cut off."

Iranian President Rouhani told his nation and the world on live television, "God has accepted the nation's prayers."

Netanyahu is not the only one concerned about this "deal."

Netanyahu also said, "In a decade, this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs, in fact, an entire nuclear arsenal with the means to deliver it---What a stunning mistake."

And he added, "We will always defend ourselves."

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani told a live television audience, "All our objectives have been met" and this deal will lift "inhumane and tyrannical sanctions" that have caused years of economic distress.

Israel has every reason to be concerned, and they are not the only nation expressing grave concern.

Here in America, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) says this deal will secure Iran's pathway to a bomb and add to its capability to terrorize the West and the Middle East.

He says, "I don't know what information the Obama administration possesses that indicates this deal will actually prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon or will cause the mullahs to reduce their support for worldwide terrorism, but it sure isn't the same intelligence we're seeing from the intelligence committee."

William Kristol, with the Weekly Standard, summed it up like this:

We have a deal. It's a deal worse than even we imagined possible. It's a deal that gives the Iranian regime $140b in return for ... effectively nothing: no dismantlement of Iran's nuclear program, no anytime/anywhere inspections, no curbs on Iran's ballistic missile program, no maintenance of the arms embargo, no halt to Iran's sponsorship of terror.
It's obviously a very good deal for the Iranian regime. It's a very bad deal for America. So Congress should rise to the occasion. Congress should engage in a full and comprehensive debate; Congress should then pass a resolution of disapproval; Congress should then override President Obama's veto, and return America's Iran policy to dealing from a position of strength rather than supplication.
If this happens, historians will look back and say July 14, 2015, was the bottom, the nadir, from which America went on to recover. If Congress cannot override the president, the recovery will have to begin a year and a half from now, but from a deeper hole, a worse position for America, the Middle East, and the world.
Either way, this deal cannot stand.

Both Israel and the United States are more vulnerable as a result of this "deal."

Last Sunday, Pastor Greg Laurie shared with his more than 15,000 member congregation, "The United States needs Israel more than Israel needs the United States."

He said God has said that "He will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel."

"One of the reasons God has blessed the United States is because of our support to Israel," he added.

He said, "What is common between the enemies of Israel and the enemies of the United States is that they are radical Islamists, and their objective is to establish a Caliphate through jihad and rule through Shariah."

He discussed several prophetic biblical verses, while explaining, "The Bible prophecy is not to scare us, but to prepare us..."

I encourage you to read the overview of his sermon at the link above.

And keep in mind, everything is under His control.

Be Expectant. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful.


  1. Some men will say one thing and do the opposite. I don't believe the world is safer because of this deal.

  2. And so we will either have to look to God to save us, or to those who created this problem.

  3. When President Obama, Secretary Kerry or Clinton rave about diplomacy, negotiations, treaties for a safer world, etc when making deals, what they are actually doing is giving away the our freedom and security and the lives of Israelis. This can not be permitted to continue for another year and a half.

  4. As an active Muslim and a foreigner by birth, Obama has/is doing all he can to destroy the USA. This is just another example of what he's doing to destroy us.

    Also, let's remember that in the very end of the world, ALL nations will be against Israel. That includes the USA. As we know God will answer the prayers of Israel, His people, and miraculously defeat their enemies.

  5. Should I suppose these people can tame Iran?

    James 3:7
    For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

    Well, I don't actually see it specifically listed.

  6. If congress can defund this deal, that's what's needed. This thing sounds ridiculous.

  7. So it looks like American taxpayers are funding Iran's nuclear program. What a deal. They should have listened to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

  8. It's my prayer that every evil thing like this will be quickly washed away by the grace of God.

  9. Why are these people giving Iran 140 billion dollars? Are they just idiots? Don't they have a clue what financial irresponsibility is?
