EU Claims Biden and Iran are Close to Striking New Nuclear Deal 

EU Claims Biden and Iran are Close to Striking New Nuclear Deal 

Israel’s Prime Minister Yair Lapid: Biden’s nuke deal will “give Iran $100 billion a year.” 

President Joe Biden is close to entering a new nuclear deal with Iran. European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell declared on Wednesday could reach an agreement in a few days.

The Biden administration also echoed the EU foreign policy chief’s statement, saying it was getting closer to striking the deal. White House National Security Council spokesman, John Kirby, said, “we are closer now than we were even just a couple of weeks ago because Iran made a decision to make some concessions.”

“The Biden administration is eager to restore the deal trashed by former president Donald Trump,” the TV channel France24 noted.

The French broadcaster added:

“I am hoping that in the coming days we are not going to lose this momentum and we can close the deal,” top EU diplomat Josep Borrell said after an informal meeting of the bloc’s foreign ministers in Prague.

“It’s clear that there is a common ground, that we have an agreement that takes into account, I think, everyone’s concerns,” he said.

Since November 2021, the Biden White House negotiators have participated in EU-sponsored talks to restore the Iran nuclear deal. The new agreement seeks to replace the Obama-era nuclear deal. In 2018, President Donald Trump’s administration walked away from the 2015 deal, placing strict sanctions on the terror-sponsoring regime.

Much like the 2015 nuclear deal negotiated by then-Secretary of State John Kerry, the new pact will do little to stop Iran from going nuclear and give billions of dollars to the regime. “On the table right now is a bad deal. It would give Iran $100 billion a year,” Prime Minister Yair Lapid warned Wednesday.

Israel’s Security Community Cautions Against The Flawed Deal

Former Israeli military and security officials have written a letter to President Biden asking him to reject the proposed nuclear deal. Pointing to the deal’s flaws, they state that the “agreement creates a clear legal pathway for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons by 2031.”

The Israeli TV network i24News reported the content of their letter:

Dozens of former senior Israeli defense officials sent a letter to US President Joe Biden urging him to not sign a revived nuclear deal with Iran.

“Despite your administration’s repeated declared commitment to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons, this agreement creates a clear legal pathway for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons by 2031, while denying the signatories of any tools to prevent that eventuality,” the letter to Biden reads.

It was signed by 32 former Israeli generals on behalf of the 5,000 members of the IDSF.

“The deal will unleash a regional nuclear arms race, in which states like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states will seek to either develop or acquire nuclear weapons to mitigate the Iranian threat,” the letter continues.

Biden’s Nuke Deal: A Financial Windfall For Global Terrorism, Jihad

The letter petitioning the U.S. president comes after a similar warning by former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He cautioned the Biden-Mullah deal would be Tehran’s “golden paved highway” to a nuclear bomb last Wednesday. He called the proposed agreement a “madness” and “the height of folly.”

The economic incentives offered by the new nuclear deal will be a massive boost for Iran’s global terrorist activities, Mossad Chief Dedi Barnea warned last week.

He said “that the deal will infuse Iran’s purse with billions of dollars that will be diverted to fund terrorist groups including the Lebanon based Hezbollah, the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, as well as other proxies and will pose a challenge for both the U.S. and Israel,” the Israeli news website Ynet News reported paraphrasing Israel’s intelligence chief.

It is worth noting that the U.S. classifies Iran as the biggest state-sponsor of terrorism.

IDF Ramping Up Abilities To Strike Iranian Nuke Program

While the Biden-Mullah deal looks like a real possibility, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is enhancing its capabilities to launch an air strike against Iran’s fortified and underground nuclear weapons sites.

Israel is set to buy U.S.-made refueling tankers that will extend the reach of its fighter jets, The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday. The IDF’s procurement of the four new Boeing tankers “will help it attack Iran’s nuclear sites,” the newspaper added.

Reporting the details of the latest Israeli military acquisition, The JPost wrote:

In seeking to further its reach as a nuclear deal between Iran and the United States looks more likely to be signed, the Israel Air Force has signed a contract with Boeing to purchase four multi-mission KC-46 refueling tankers in a deal valued at $927.5 million.

The four new planes that will begin to arrive in 2025 are set to replace the IAF’s aging fleet of Re’em Boeing 707 tankers, aircraft that have been flying in various guises for well over half a century. (…)

IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi has made clear that he views a rekindling of the 2015 nuclear deal as dangerous and has said publicly that he has asked for fresh operational plans to be prepared to strike Iran in order to stop its nuclear program, if necessary.

This should surprise nobody- especially after yesterday

I wonder what back channels discussions went on between Iran and Democrats prior to 2020 election?

Apparently that kind of thing was illegal not that long ago??

    They weren’t even being secretive about it. Kerry was very openly violating the law by undermining the executive at the time.

This is appeasement writ large. The Israelis realize that they are on their own and that American promises and assurances of loyalty and help are worthless

Will the big guy get his 10 percent? Papa Doc Biden isn’t lacking in chutzpah.

I like how the leader of the free world wants to dismantle his own title more than anyone else.

This is monumentally stupid.

In recent days the Iranian delegation has made significant concessions in order to facilitate the agreement. Among others they have agreed to let the Brandon administration give them the money by wire transfer instead of pallets of used bills. They also have agreed to not refer to Brandon as Senile Satan.

So, the pedophile is getting ready to hand the Ayatollah the plans to nuclear weapons, is he?

Well, it looks like Israel is going to get a chance to test a few nuclear weapons. They seem to be the only ones who understand that a nuclear Iran can’t and won’t co-exist with a Jewish state.

“EU Claims Biden and Iran are Close to Striking New Nuclear Deal”

Soon to be followed by Iran making some strikes of their own.

“It’s clear that there is a common ground, that we have an agreement that takes into account, I think, everyone’s concerns,”

“Taking into account” and actually addressing those concerns, however, are mutually exclusive.

“Do Iranian strategic missiles have the range to hit Europe?

I’m betting “no.” All else is noise.

A coup in Tripoli. A coup in Kiev, an eight year assault on the Ukrainian people, and contravention of transnational agreements in order to occupy Russian defense. Will Iran now take a knee, perhaps beg, or feel sanctioned to resume Obama’s Islamic State/Iraq War 2.0?

I have been involved peripherally in strategic matters in the past.

Israel has had nuclear weapons since the late 1960’s. Current open source estimates of the size of their inventory is 90+, some estimates way +. They have multiple means of delivery. They also have the ability to launch their own satellites, and have a bunch in orbit now. Without going into details, if you can place a satellite of a certain mass into an orbit of your choice, you also have ICBM capabilities. Even without ICBM’s Israel has the means to strike Iran to destroy it. Once again, without details. And enough left over to engage in counter-value nuclear deterrence with all other nuclear powers.

Y’all can bet that Israel is not going to let Iran get the first strike in on Israel. And they will NOT go quietly into the long night.

    … and been refining their warhead intercept capability, deployed, in practice, for what 20+ years?

    With some internal adjustments they’re energy, food, and water independent. With mandatory military service, indigenous arms industry, several invasions in living memory, and semi-mobilization for a couple generations, their durable internal capability is remarkable. You’d have to parking lot the whole place. And kill, what, half the population outright? Then there are the relatives and supporters outside of Iranian missile range. “Win” against Israel like that, and I suspect you lose.

    The “death to Israel” people have been fortunate in their failures to date. God by whatever name help them should they succeed even a bit. God by whatever name be praised, that they have as yet been protected by their own ineptitude.
