Joe Biden’s decision to resurrect the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal means he is defending what is likely the most absurd and outrageous foreign policy deal of all time, says a vocal defender of the Israeli state.
The White House has announced it intends to join talks with the Iranian regime and other world powers to discuss a return to the 2015 nuclear deal, which President Trump withdrew from in 2018.
Responding to that announcement, Israel’s government has warned that returning to the old agreement will “pave Iran's path to a nuclear arsenal,” and the Jewish state vowed in a second statement that is was “committed” to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
According to The Associated Press, President Biden was expected to address the U.S. stance on the nuclear deal in a Group of Seven meeting over the weekend, and the State Department has announced it would accept a meeting with U.S. Security Council members, Germany, and Iran.
After the U.S. worked closely with Israel under Donald Trump, President Biden was raising eyebrows by failing to call Netanyahu for a formal conversation after entering the White House in mid-January. Biden finally called on Feb. 17, Axios reported, and Iran was among the topics discussed.
Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries says the original nuclear deal was an “outrageous” decision.
“Why would the world,” she asks rhetorically, “want to reward the world's number one sponsor of terrorism? Threatening, in fact, death to America?”
Yet it appears the Biden administration, just like the Obama administration, seems to be a victim of a “strong delusion” and a “reprobate mind” just as the Bible warns, she adds.
Among concessions by the Biden administration, the AP reported that strict travel restrictions have been lifted on UN-based Iranian diplomats.
