Senator Ted Cruz On The Bad Deal With Iran

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX
On Sunday, Nov. 24 Senator Ted Cruz released the following press release that I agree with about the very bad deal the United States [along with Great Britain, France, China, Russia, and Germany] made with Iran. This is not just a bad deal but a dangerous deal, especially for Israel, and the entire world.  In the press release Senator Cruz references the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu's brilliant rhetoric that "this was not a historic agreement, this was a historic mistake."

From the office of Senator Ted Cruz on November 24, 2013:
WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released the following statement on the interim agreement on Iran's nuclear program:

"According to the interim agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program that was reached this weekend in Geneva, not one centrifuge will be destroyed. Not one pound of enriched uranium will leave Iran. Not one American unjustly detained in Iran's notorious prisons will be released. But Iran will start to receive, in a matter of days, $7 billion in relief from international economics sanctions.

"All the smiling embraces between diplomats after the interim deal was signed notwithstanding, the Iranian regime remains a brutal and oppressive dictatorship that pursues nuclear weapons for the purpose of dominating the Middle East and threatening America and our allies, notably Israel. President Obama and Secretary Kerry should reconsider their policy of rapprochement with Iran that is dismaying to Jerusalem and encouraging to Tehran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu predicted this agreement would be a 'very, very bad deal' and has now correctly identified it as an 'historic mistake.' Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted his satisfaction as the 'breaking down the architecture for sanctions has begun.' The administration has gotten it backwards and it is time to reverse course before any further damage is done."

"The Iran deal is a historic mistake"
I submit we have not seen [the Barack Obama presidency] such weakness and incompetence on a foreign policy level by a president of the United States since the presidency of Jimmy Carter.  It was in 1979,  under Carter's presidency, that Iran became an Islamist state under the Ayatollah Khomeni, that would be a precursor of the Islamist terrorism that we face today.

Jimmy Carter will be known as the president who left us with an Islamist state in Iran.
Will Barack Obama be known as the president who left us with a nuclear weaponized Iran?

Do NOT tell me your an Israeli supporter if you still support this American leadership disaster. Do NOT tell me you're a Jew if you still support this WH. And this includes rabbis, and so called "Jewish " leaders.
