Debkafile: “President Barack Obama and John Kerry promised that the nuclear deal to be signed with Iran in Switzerland this week would give the world powers a year’s warning from the Islamic Republic’s break out to an operational weapon. debkafile: To clinch the framework deal in Lausanne, even this concession, which imperils Israel, the Gulf and the Middle East at large, was not enough. The president authorized the US delegation to fall back again and cut the space granted the world powers for reaction to breakthrough from a year to six or seven months.
1. Because Iran is permitted to continue running up to 6,500 elderly IR-1 centrifuges for enriching uranium to a low 3.5 percent grade, even if it is permitted to keep only 500 kilos of its stock of 7.5-8 –tons, Tehran would still be able to build a bomb in 7-8 months, i.e. a lot faster than Obama and Kerry have promised.
2. But if Tehran activates secret facilities undetected by US intelligence, it can produce a larger quantity of enriched uranium and so shrink the time between breakout and bomb to three, at most, four months, totally insufficient for the world powers to detect, step in and abort the bomb’s manufacture, in view of the following considerations.”
Opinion: With the deadline for the deal 1 day away, it is important to remember that Shia Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers in order to defeat them.
The two forms are:
Taqiyya – Saying something that isn’t true. Taqiyya holds a central place in Twelver Shi’a Islam. This is sometimes explained by the minority position Shi’ites had under the political dominance of Sunni Muslims, requiring them to protect themselves through concealment and dissimulation.
Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”
Though not called Taqiyya by name, Muhammad clearly used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans that allowed him access to their city while he secretly prepared his own forces for a takeover. The unsuspecting residents were conquered in easy fashion after he broke the treaty two years later, and the people in the city who had trusted him at his word were executed.
Here is who we are negotiating with:
Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, is a high-ranking Radical Shia cleric who fundamentally agrees with the terrorist policies of the Ayatollah Khamenei. Upon winning Iran’s election, “the President-elect thanked the Mahdi for his victory.”
Shia Islamic theologians say Muslim political leaders today are supposed to set into motion the annihilation of Judeo-Christian civilization and create the conditions of chaos and carnage to hasten the arrival of the Twelfth Imam, who has been in hiding since the 8th century AD.
Then the Mahdi and his subordinate Isa, son of Mary, are supposed to turn all these wars and killings to the Mahdi’s advantage and establish justice and peace. Shia eschatology is why the mullahs in Tehran are working so hard to pursue nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
Yes, Virginia, Shia Iranians believe that Jesus Christ is under the command of the Mahdi, and this is the nation to which the US president is trusting the safety of the world.
