A return to the Iran deal that was negotiated in 2015 seemed impossible just a few weeks ago.

After a year of claims that the Iranians had to come to some sort of an agreement or the window of opportunity would close, it appeared that the ayatollahs in Tehran were too far away from the West in negotiating the return to what is known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

However, new reports this past week claim that a final text of a deal has been hammered out.

For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. 13 All the people of the land will bury them, and the day I display my glory will be a memorable day for them, declares the Sovereign Lord.” Ezekiel 39: 12-13

Is the Iran deal finalized?

We remain skeptical about this effort to finalize a deal, but we hope that whatever is involved in the final talks and any agreement that might be made will include measures that ensure Israel’s and the region’s stability and security. Israel relies on a close alliance with the United States and good relations with the Biden administration.

We support the administration’s attempts to provide security for the region, while expecting that Iran will never be able to develop nuclear weapons.
