Rouhani mocks US claim that all options are still on the table


The Times Of Israel: “Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday called on Washington officials to stop using threatening language against Tehran, hitting back at comments by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Rouhani’s statement, published by the semi-official Fars news agency, came after Kerry said Thursday that the military option remains on the table vis-a-vis Iran, in case it does not adhere to the agreement on its nuclear program reached with world powers earlier this month.

“The US should know that it has no other option but respecting Iran and showing modesty towards the country and saying the right thing,” Rouhani told a crowd in the western Iranian city of Sanandij on Sunday.”


Opinion: The smiles are gone, the veiled threats begin and Israel is in the crosshairs.

The decision to approve the deal now lies with the Republican Congress who, so far, has given the president 100% support.
