The Australia/Israel and Jewish Affairs Council has called on the Australian Government and  all responsible international players to re-double their efforts to ensure that implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran is carefully scrutinised, rigorously enforced, and  does not lead to Iran become even more of an international threat.

In a media release expressing its concerns,  AIJAC’s executive director Dr Colin Rubenstein states: “Even the strongest proponents of this agreement concede that it does no more than delay Iran becoming a nuclear threshold state, while giving Iran a major boost in its ability to pursue regional dominance, to fund extremist groups and foment international conflict.

The months since the signing of the JCPOA in July have offered no evidence that Iran is moderating its behaviour – rather the contrary, as Iran has flouted legally binding UN resolutions to test-launch nuclear capable missiles, and expanded its support for the Assad regime, Hezbollah  and other terrorists.
The implementation of the JCPOA cannot and must not lead to either complacency or a sense that “business as usual” with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism is now warranted, but rather vigilance, seriousness and a strong determination by governments to do whatever is needed to convince the Iranians that their illegal and destabilising activity must end. “

    And another thing. From my reading its entirely possible that Korea is testing Iran’s nuclear devices for them. It has been proven over and over; we are never going to get transparency in any shape or form from the Iranians. Their culture is one of manipulation; based on Machiavellian tenets – with lashings of ultra-barbarian thrown in.

    Democracy is democracy and anything else – well, it just isn’t going to be transparent. Israel needs to make better friends with her more friendlier neighbours. And do something about the NGO laws. Those two things will be a great beginning with respect to keeping Iran (and large manipulative western corporations) under control.

    “If the President is right that rejecting this deal will be worse than accepting, then he has put us in the terrible position of choosing between bad and worse” – Alan Dershowitz

    And now the deal is done, apparently. Iran has handed over some political prisoners and collected billions for their trouble.

    How much worse could things get? Has the President no moral compass? Did he once, in any of his recent speeches, allude to what could be worse? What is the threat, apart from the obvious, that Iran has over the rest of the world? What could possibly be worse than what the POTUS has done in accepting this game-changing, totally irresponsible agreement?

    Could it be that the powers and their proxies who drive Iran, and all the other despotic, maniacal regimes in the Mid East, were going to blow up our globe, in any case?
    What the hell could be worse than a nuclear-armed Iran – Iranian capacitance is as bad as it could get. This POTUS has changed the world forever.
