Times of Israel – Despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s criticism of Washington’s handling of negotiations with Iran, Israeli intelligence acknowledges that Tehran has made no advancements during the past year and a half of talks, US President Barack Obama said Sunday.

Netanyahu has frequently voiced his criticism of what he sees as overly accommodating agreements being negotiated between world powers and Iran, both before last year’s interim accords were announced and afterwards. The Israeli prime minister has repeatedly taken to the world stage to warn about the threat posed by a potentially nuclear armed Iran.

    It is not that our esteemed golfer would lie about the Islamic bomb.He don’t know the truth so how could he spin truth into a lie? He was elected as a talker.The news clerks say that he is as Chrismatic as JFK. I think that means that he is a good entertainer. So he just gets in front of a camera to babble anything that sounds clever. Then he runs off to golf.What more do you expect an educated person that has the technical knowledge of a clerk to do? That is why Washington is surrounded by consultants at the great expense of taxpayers to back up the words of babbling idiot entertainers.


    Intelligence reports confirm the Iranian advances in missile propulsion and guidance technology and advances in warhead design and integration.

  • This is what Israelis really think:

    ‘Sunset clause’

    Yet, more than any single enforcement standard or cap included in the deal, Israel believes the Achilles’ heel of the proposed agreement is its definitive end date – the sunset clause.

    “You’ve not dismantled the infrastructure, you’ve basically tried to put limits that you think are going to be monitored by inspectors and intelligence,” said the official, “and then after this period of time, Iran is basically free to do whatever it wants.”

    The Obama administration also rejects this claim. By e-mail, the senior US administration official said that, “‘following successful implementation of the final step of the comprehensive solution for its duration, the Iranian nuclear program will be treated in the same manner as that of any non-nuclear weapon state party to the NPT – with an emphasis on non-nuclear weapon.”

    “That has in no way changed,” the American official continued, quoting the interim Joint Plan of Action reached last year.

    But the treatment of Iran as any other signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty -189 countries are members, including Iran – would allow Tehran to ultimately acquire “an industrial-sized capability,” the Israelis say. “The breakout times [to a nuclear weapon] will be effectively zero.”
