Israel and Its Lobby Aim to Sabotage an Iranian Nuclear Deal

Israel and Its Lobby Aim to Sabotage an Iranian Nuclear Deal

by Stephen Lendman

On April, 1, P5+1 countries and Iran agreed on framework terms ahead of aiming for resolving remaining issues by June 30.

Whether possible remains to be seen. Israel and its US lobby are going all-out to sabotage talks.

A June 11 article discussed Iranian spying on hotels used for P5+1 talks - to acquire and pass on information to congressional members and others aiming to prevent a fair and equitable Iranian nuclear deal.

National security adviser Yossi Cohen heads an Israeli team including foreign ministry, defense and nuclear energy officials coming to Washington this week to meet with Obama's national security advisor Susan Rice and likely others.

CIA director John Brennan and Joint Chiefs chairman General Martin Dempsey met separately with top Israeli officials days earlier.

Israel and its US lobby want current talks sabotaged, tough sanctions maintained, and continued Iranian isolation. How things turn out remain to be seen.

Heavy AIPAC pressure may accomplish what Israel perhaps can't do on its own. It made unreasonable demands before. It’s got new ones it calls five requirements for a good deal.

1. "Unrestricted inspections and verification:" It wants them "anytime, anywhere," including military facilities no country would permit free access to.

It wants them on short-notice anywhere within Iran's borders. "No facilities can be off-limits," it says. "Iran must not be able to veto specific inspections."

AIPAC wants robust inspections continued until the IAEA verifies all Iranian nuclear work is peaceful. It want Tehran's supply chain monitored to check on whether illicit purchases are made.

AIPAC owns Congress. Any member not fully supportive of Israel is targeted for replacement.

On March 18, 2014, 391 House members sent a letter to Obama saying inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities "should include an agreement granting the IAEA necessary access to inspect all suspect sites, including military facilities."

A same day letter signed by 83 senators said "(w)e believe Iran must…submit to a long-term and intrusive inspection and verification regime."

On March 20, 2015, 367 House members wrote Obama saying "(a)ny inspection and verification regime must allow for short notice access to suspect locations."

2. "Possible Military Dimensions:" AIPAC wants Iran to explain earlier nuclear weaponization efforts whether or not any existed - including revealing documents perhaps never produced.

It claims a baseline must be established from which to judge future actions.

3. No sanctions relief until "Iran complies with its commitments:" AIPAC wants stiff consequences for any violations discovered.

It wants Western-controlled monitors to be judge and jury about Iran's well-known peaceful nuclear program.

4. "Duration: Iran's nuclear weapons quest must be blocked for decades," says AIPAC - to prevent Tehran from becoming a nuclear threshold state.

No evidence suggests its intention to develop nuclear weapons. AIPAC demands the impossible.

It wants Tehran to prove a negative - "that it no longer seeks a nuclear weapons capability" no evidence suggests it had in the first place.

It wants Iran's legitimate nuclear program hamstrung - limiting its research and other essential activities needed to operate effectively.

5. "Dismantlement:"AIPAC demands Iran eliminate its essential nuclear infrastructure "so it has no path to a nuclear weapon" it has no intention to develop.

AIPAC's notion of a "good deal" is one no responsible nation with a peaceful nuclear program would accept.

It wants unreasonable demands made Iran will reject to assure no final deal resolution - at least no fair one.

It wants continued Iranian isolation and tough sanctions maintained aiming for eliminating Tehran as an Israeli regional rival by regime change.

The whole world knows Iran's nuclear program is peaceful with no military component.

Claims otherwise are part of a longterm US/Israeli strategy to replace its sovereign independence with pro-Western stooge governance.

Iran remains resilient. It withstood imperial pressure for 36 years. It has no intention of sacrificing its legitimate rights now - nor should it.
