APN Board member Mark Silverberg in the Cleveland Jewish News: Why I support the proposed Iran nuclear deal

The article states: “As a recent USA Today editorial pointed out, those who reject the proposed deal are living in a fantasy land. These opponents contend if the proposed deal fails the talks will just re-start and lead to a better deal while the international coalition and its coordinated sanctions can be maintained. Both of these conclusions are baseless and deeply flawed. They also ignore the inevitable consequence that Iran would then be free to pursue development of nuclear weapons.”

“These vital considerations are foremost in the minds of the many Israeli security, military and nuclear Israelis who support the proposed deal. Two particular voices stand out: the former head of the Mossad, Efraim Halevy, who wrote that under the pact Iran is “forced to agree to an invasive and unique monitoring regime, which is unparalleled around the world …” and the former head of the Shin Bet, Ami Ayalon, who said that “when it comes to Iran’s nuclear capability, this [deal] is the best option …” Their opinions are based on hard facts, not political posturing, and carefully weighed consequences.”

  1. Silverberg. You and your friends are idiots! NOW, there is no going back to sanctions, now that the US has given up all the hard won gains from previous efforts which brought a murderous administration to the table. Our own negotiating geniuses gave the store away. Kerry, the wuss. What a worthless blow hard. Too late! He and his handler, ob1shithead, have agreed to let Iran do what they want, to build nukes. Your contention that without this deal Iran would be free to persue nukes is laughable as a childs point of view of the world and how people think. I for one am disgusted with this outcome, but even more so because of our (US) reps are just plain worthless. The alternative explanation is that they were never out to negotiate for the US, only for their own special interests.
