Dark day for Israel and the world?

by Heather Robinson

Today negotiators reached a much-anticipated deal aimed at reining in Iran’s nuclear program.

This agreement, the result of two years of negotiations on the part of the U.S. and others in the international community, allows Iran to continue to enrich uranium to weapons grade over the next decade.

It requires inspections, but not surprise inspections.

Also, it allows for Iran to have “peaceful” nuclear power – without requiring Iran cease incitement and terrorism.

In a rare display of consensus in Israel, politicians right and left, religious and secular, even Israeli-Jew and Israeli-Arab, agree this deal is bad for Israel. I may not be an expert on nuclear engineering, but I know that when all sectors of Israeli society agree that Israel is endangered by this deal, it is worrisome. Michael Oren, (pictured above,) Israel’s former ambassador to the U.S., wrote about this today.

Why then does most of the world support this?

Maybe no country and no people, other than a segment of Americans, really cares about Israel.

We can still act. My understanding is that if two thirds of the legislature overrides Obama, the deal can be stopped. In the U.S., power is ultimately in the hands of the people.
