It is common knowledge that the US is trying to restart the Iran Nuke deal that was junked by the Orange Man from Florida….and yes there is still opposition mostly from that piss ant nation of Israel.
They have ordered the US to immediately halt the Iranian talks…..
Israel stepped up its opposition to the Iran nuclear deal talks on Thursday and demanded that the US and other world powers put an immediate end to the negotiations.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett delivered the message in a call with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. “Iran is carrying out nuclear blackmail as a negotiating tactic, and this should be answered by the immediate halt to negotiations and the implementation of tough steps by the world powers,” Bennett said, according to a statement released by his office.
Israel claims that Iran has no intention of reducing its nuclear activity back to JCPOA levels and is only trying to buy time to develop a nuclear bomb. But there’s no evidence to support the claim, and Iran has only taken steps to advance its nuclear program in the face of pressure from the US and Israel, and a JCPOA revival would reverse those steps.
Iran has said Israel is spreading lies about Iran to “poison” the negotiations. When the talks first resumed Monday, Israeli media reported that Israel warned the US Tehran is about to enrich uranium to the 90 percent level needed for weapons-grade. But again, there was no evidence to back up the claim.
With the demands from Israeli officials to halt negotiations come threats. Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Thursday that attacking Iran must always be an option for Israel, even if the country has to act alone.
Israel has taken extreme measures to sabotage diplomacy between the US and Iran in the past. In April, when the first rounds of negotiations began, Israel carried out an attack on Iran’s Natanz Nuclear Facility. Tehran responded to the incident by starting to enrich some uranium at 60 percent, which Israel now claims is evidence the Iranians are racing towards a bomb.
Ordered to halt the talks?
Who the Hell is Israel?
Some little piss ant nation that loves bullying their neighbors…..and the US snuggles up to this nation all in the name of political donations.
On a side note….after decades of fear mongering about Iran by war-hawks and Israel the CIA has issued a statement….
CIA Director William Burns said the US does not have evidence that Iran has decided to weaponize its nuclear program.
The CIA “doesn’t see any evidence that Iran’s Supreme Leader [Ali Khamenei] has made a decision to move to weaponize,” Burns told The Wall Street Journal’s annual CEO Council, The Times of Israel reported.
Burns’ admission comes a week after the US and Iran resumed indirect negotiations in Vienna to revive the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA. The latest round of talks concluded Friday and are expected to resume this Thursday.
Israeli officials have been claiming that Iran is only trying to buy time with the negotiations as it secretly develops a nuclear bomb. For decades now, Israel has been making similar warnings, but Iran has always insisted it does not want nuclear weapons and Israel is currently the only nuclear-armed state in the region.
Time for the US to step up and tell Israel to STFU…

If Israel has ‘spoken’, we all know that’s all America needs to hear.
I would love to know exactly what they have on the US. I still think it is a secret behind 9/11 that they will reveal if America doesn’t toe the line.
Best wishes, Pete.
That and the cash they feed the politicians…..chuq
