Video: Israel, Arabs agree on something — and you’ll never guess what it is

posted at 9:21 am on July 14, 2015 by Ed Morrissey

Benjamin Netanyahu erupted in anger after the announcement of a deal with Iran, and he was far from alone in the region. NBC’s Richard Engel tells Morning Joe that Sunni allies of the US in the region have also reacted in anger and disbelief at the deal, providing a rare moment of unity in the face of renewed Iranian power. That has these regimes looking for ways to check that power, and that almost certainly means a nuclear arms race in the region:

Morning Joe panelist Mike Barnicle asked Engel what his sense was that this deal could set off a “new and really volatile MidEast arms race.”

“It is very possible,“ Engel said. “In one sense, you have to look at this as a gamble. The U.S. is taking a gamble, and for the U.S. there is relatively low risk … For the region right now, this is not like Cuba. This is not like Myanmar. There are active conflicts underway right now, in which Iran is a major party to those conflicts, so there is a possibility that this agreement could just be adding more fuel to the sectarian fire … An arms race is possible, and a worsening of the active regional conflicts in the region is also possible.”

That is certainly one reason why the Israeli Prime Minister is reacting so harshly this morning to the news, but it’s obviously not the only reason. The Wall Street Journal reports that Netanyahu will lobby Congress to stop the bill:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday the agreement between Iran and six world powers on Tehran’s nuclear program is a “historic mistake for the world.”

“Wide-ranging concessions were made in all of the areas which should have prevented Iran from getting the ability to arm itself with a nuclear weapon,’’ Mr. Netanyahu said. “The desire to sign an agreement was stronger than everything else.” …

Israel is expected to actively lobby U.S. legislators against the deal. Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely pointed to such an effort in her reaction to the deal.

“The implications of this agreement for the foreseeable future are very grave,” she said. “The state of Israel will employ all diplomatic means to prevent the confirmation of the agreement.’’

Speaking to Israel Radio on Tuesday, Mr. Netanyahu’s former national security adviser,Yaakov Amidror, said Tuesday’s agreement lacks tough procedures that prevent Iran from violating it.

“When the foundations of a house are shaky,” Mr. Amidror said. “I don’t care what’s in the windows or doors. That house won’t stand through one storm. This agreement won’t stand through one storm. On the day the Iranians decide to violate it, there is no real mechanism that can operate against them.”

The message in this deal to Israel and its Sunni neighbors is actually worse than that. It’s not just that the US has set up a deal that won’t work — it’s that the Obama administration clearly doesn’t care whether it works or not. This is the West, signing off from the Middle East, and every other nation in the region understands that message loud and clear.

Of course he does. His specific intent is to propel Iran into the role of regional super-power. What interest he has in that aside from Valerie Wormtongue’s counsel, I’m not aware, but his intent is obvious. People say that he was willing to make a deal at any cost, but that’s not true. He was not willing to make a deal that had any cost to Iran.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but this deal is so reekingly awful, if Hillary were to come out strongly against it and somehow manage to create a media poo-storm that was seen to influence congressional Democrats to side with Republicans in opposition to the deal, she’d gain a lot of presidential cred with the LIVs. This is something no Republican could do due to the medias’ not wishing to hand them a win.

This is the West, signing off from the Middle East, and every other nation in the region understands that message loud and clear.

No it’s Barack Obama signing off from the Middle East.

True to his ideological bent, Mr. Obama’s real objective is to leave the world to their own devices. What he forgets is what he loathes: an exceptional United States who possesses the leadership and power to shape things for the better.

Rather than use that influence to help avoid dangerous conflict, conflict that will involve countries who are sworn enemies of the United States, countries that have used their assets to kill our soldiers and citizens, Mr. Obama chose to abandon common sense and make the world a much more dangerous place for our families. In the process, he’s given nuclear weapons and resources, in the form of billions of dollars, to a state sponsor of terrorism that is despotically trouncing countries across the Middle East.

There may be many people who are “friends of the United States” in Iran. But none of them exist in the power structure currently ruling that country and Mr. Obama has just rewarded their autocratic, destructive, anti-democratic theocracy with the most potent weapon on our planet. It’s a dangerous future for that region and for us. Not just because this deal guarantees a conflict, but it guarantees resources for a more destructive engagement of the parties. It’s not just Chamberlain-esque/ It’s Chamberlain meets Stalin.

In order for “dealing with Iran” to be a “big positive,” you have to do 3 things:

2. Assume Iran will actually abide by any deal, in defiance of their own history, and

3. Ignore what is actually written in the deal.

LilyBart on July 14, 2015 at 1:49 PM

It’s not just that the US has set up a deal that won’t work — it’s that the Obama administration clearly doesn’t care whether it works or not.

The deal is designed to ENABLE Iran’s development of nuclear weapons.

Obama WANTS a nuclear Iran to serve as a nuclear counterweight to Israel and the leader of Shia Muslims.

He tried to set up the Muslim Brotherhood as a unifying power over Sunni Muslims in the ME, but that plan has utterly failed due to the corruption and incompetence of Muslim Brotherhood leadership. The plan was a nuclear Iran and the Shias, and a unified Sunni Arabia under the Brotherhood would stand united against Israel and ultimately destroy her.

If the Brotherhood can’t hold up its end, Obama will go forward and give the whole job to Iran.

The man is aggressively doing incalculable damage not only to the US, but to the entire world.

Actually, this is even worse than that. The Obama administration doesn’t care if it works or not, but they will be constantly forcing the media to claim that it IS working.

What “forcing” are you talking about?
DeMedia are his biggest cheerleaders.

The world wanted Obama.

Enjoy.

This. I remember that worldwide poll and every nation except Israel wanted Obama to win. Everyone else can suck it if they don’t like the outcome. Enjoy the SuperEgoGenocidalNarcissistPsychosis you asked for.

God doesn’t have to put any effort into punishing people for their sins; He just steps back and lets them do as they wish.

I am 100% confident that Obama will be every bit as successful as Clinton.

I may misremember, but wasn’t it during the first summer of his presidency that Iran had their uprising? Those looking to create change in Iran were looking for help or at least some leadership from the US. The President said we have been getting involved in Middle East skirmishes for far too long. There was a new policy that he was following. We were staying out of Middle East affairs like this.

However, that uprising in Iran seems to be the only place he hasn’t stuck his nose into over there.

And now he was hell bent on a deal for Iran. Trying to piece together why Iran is so special to him.

This is going to embolden ISIS to do what?? Engel is a smart guy, but the reason the Arabs are pissed has nothing to do with arms races and everything to do with the broader Sunni-Shia war happening. Iran having better relations with the U.S. as well as sanctions relief upsets the Sunni Arabs who are busy funding ISIS and others against the Iranian-backed Shia.

Easing tensions with Iran and keeping our distance from the battlefield is exactly the right strategy imho.

Easing tensions with Iran … is exactly the right strategy imho.

redandexpert on July 14, 2015 at 6:45 PM

Yeah, right. Because now Iran will now be nicer to us. /

Peace in our time.
