Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stunned Washington on Monday when he revealed Iran’s “atomic archive.” Stolen from Tehran by Israeli intelligence, it’s a cache of more than 100,000 documents that “conclusively prove that Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear weapons program,” Netanyahu charged.
That means, “The Iran deal, the nuclear deal, is based on lies.”
+ + Powerful reactions to Israel’s findings
An unnamed senior congressional official told the Washington Free Beacon “the news has sent shockwaves through Capitol Hill. ‘Everything the Obama administration told us about the Iranian nuclear program was a lie.'”
In Jerusalem, Israel’s Deputy Minister Michael Oren took a swipe at the how the Obama administration pushed for and signed the deal that gave Iran billions of dollars and a pathway to nuclear armament. The “conduct of the Obama administration borders on criminal,” Oren told Arutz Sheva.
In a statement, the White House said Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons would trigger imminent danger to Israel and Iran’s neighboring nations.
President Trump has repeatedly denounced the agreement calling it “a bad deal for the United States.” He has until May 12th to determine the short-term future of the United States’ participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), aka the Iran Nuclear deal. Many security experts contend the JCPOA is a dangerous agreement and poses a direct threat, first to Israel, but also to the United States.
Christians in Defense of Israel is urging President Trump, along with Members of Congress, to use their constitutional authority to end the deal and re-impose stiff sanctions on Iran as a deterrent to this radical Islamic regime.
+ + “Five Hiroshima bombs”
In his presentation, PM Netanyahu unveiled Iran’s original plans to field five 10-kiloton nuclear weapons. “That’s like five Hiroshima bombs to be put on ballistic missiles,” according to the Prime Minister.
If Iran’s senior officials launched a missile against Israel, which it has repeatedly threatened to do, it would take just 7 minutes to reach Tel Aviv and raze the city.
Also contained in the documents was information on a project codenamed Amad, a “comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons.”
Iran must never have nuclear bombs but the Iran deal gives the rogue nation an eventual pathway. That’s why you and I must call now for it to end.
God bless you for joining with us in standing on behalf of our nation and the nation of Israel,
P.S. The deal with Iran that the Obama administration brokered was never in the best interests of the United States, Israel, or the Arab states. It’s time for the President and Members of Congress to withdraw from this dangerous and one-sided agreement built on lies.
