Israeli General Benny Gantz: ‘Rational’ Iranian leaders not pushing nuclear bomb

The Iranian leadership is intelligent enough to not start a war, they are far away from the crazy maniacs, as they are represented by the warmongering fraction:

Even Israeli General Benny Gantz sees it like that:

Meanwhile Benjamin Netanyahu ( Bibi ) continues with the fear strategy:

#Iran: We saved the Jews three times; #Netanyahu should learn history – Diplomacy and Defense – Israel News | Haaretz

Dr. Angela Joya

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s accusations in his recent speech to the U.S. Congress that Iran wants to destroy Israel.

In an interview with NBC, Zarif said that “Iran saved the Jews three times in its history,” insinuating that Netanyahu should brush up on his history lessons.

Zarif said Netanyahu distorts both the current reality and the writings in Jewish sources and the Bible.

Sanctions cannot stop the Iranian nuclear program, only a deal can

please take a close look to the graphic here and read the text below it:

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

No deal is worse for the west (no control at all, Iran can ditch the NPT at all and use its full power to go nuclear), and for the Iranian public (the only ones in Iran who are suffering):

(the 100wordz links just cite popular western or Israeli news sites – sources included)

BTW Iranians will not standup against the regime, because of hurting sanctions.
They are too busy having 3 jobs to support their family because of the sanctions.

Even if US and Israeli politicians would like to see it this way:
https://100wordz.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/netanjahu-aid-irans-citizens-should-be-starved-in-order-to-curb-tehrans-nuclear-program/

The sanctions could not stop Iran to go from approx. 3k centrifuges to 19k centrifuges, only a deal can. In the case of the deal they are willing to go back to 6k centrifuges and export enriched uranium out of the country, under IAEA supervision.

You think you know about Iran and Iranians?? Think twice:

Christian Science Monitor + Israeli sources on Netanyahu’s track record of lies and war mongering

Christian Science Monitor + lots of Israeli sources:

Netanyahu is telling the lie about nuclear weapons in Iran since 1992. He said in 92 that Iran is 3-5 years away from having the bomb:
http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2011/1108/Imminent-Iran-nuclear-threat-A-timeline-of-warnings-since-1979/Israel-paints-Iran-as-Enemy-No.-1-1992

2012 He made a big show in front of the UN that Iran will soon have nuclear weapons, already knowing the Mossad reports that were saying that Iran is not even trying to build nuclear weapons:
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/report-netanyahu-iran-bomb-claim-contradicted-mossad/

Also at home he is lying:
http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahus-said-to-keep-real-kitchen-off-camera/

Here a report on YNet (right wing Israeli news) about Nuclear Iran:
https://100wordz.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/another-expert-contradicts-netanyahu-israeli-ex-atomic-chief-iran-10-years-away-from-nuclear-weapons-and-doubts-that-iran-is-after-them-at-all/

US intelligence agencies see it the same way:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/25/world/middleeast/us-agencies-see-no-move-by-iran-to-build-a-bomb.html?_r=0

Here you’ll see a video of a presentation Netanyahu made before a congressional committee in 2002 in which he encouraged a US attack upon Iraq. “A nuclear-armed Saddam will place the security of our entire world at risk,” he says at one point. Almost the same words he used now about Iran. It seems very much as if this man has been advocating war throughout much of his adult life.

http://www.c-span.org/video/?172612-1/israeli-perspective-conflict-iraq

A war that cost the US tax payer 2 trillion dollars, thousands of dead marines, and tens of thousands with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) and or handicapped.

Why do people want an escalation with Iran? Do they want get their hands bloody on more Iranian lives?

Iranians have nothing against the people of Israel or Jews at all. Please take a careful look at these posts:

37 Organizations to Congress: Quit Playing Politics with Deal to Prevent Iran War

Washington, DC – The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) was one of 37 organizations to send a letter to Congress today regarding the roles of Congress and the President in sealing a nuclear deal with Iran. The letter was prompted when certain lawmakers reacted harshly to a New York Times report that, if there is a nuclear deal with Iran, the White House plans to initially use executive action to temporarily suspend certain sanctions.

“The lawmakers pretending to be shocked are the ones who never had any intention of trading in sanctions to get a peaceful nuclear deal,” said NIAC Policy Director Jamal Abdi. “They wanted to use sanctions to either make the standoff with Iran permanent, as with Cuba, or start a catastrophic war, as with Iraq.”

Congress has consistently provided the necessary authority for the President to temporarily suspend sanctions on Iran as necessary. Yet some of the Republican authors of the sanctions bills, including Mark Kirk and Ileana Ros Lehtinen, have been the most vocal critics of the President’s plan to use those authorities.

“If Iran upholds its commitments and the deal is working, Congress would need to authorize permanent sanctions relief,” said Abdi. “But some lawmakers simply do not want any peaceful deal and are grasping at straws to try to prevent it.”

Six Iranian Filmmakers Launch Campaign Urging Deal Over Nuclear Crisis

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

No nuclear deal is worse for the west and for the regular Iranian people

Six prominent Iranian movie directors have launched an Internet campaign saying “there is no deal that is worse than no deal” in an effort to end the crisis over Iran’s nuclear program.

Among those leading the campaign at no2nodeal.com are Rakhshan Bani-Etemad, who won the award for best screenplay for her film “Tales” at this year’s Venice Film Festival, and Asghar Farhadi, who won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012 for “A Separation.”

The other four well-known film directors supporting the No2NoDeal campaign are Mohammad Mehdi Asgarpour, Abbas Kiarostami, Majid Majidi, and Reza Mirkarimi.

There is a lot of support among Iran’s artistic community for President Hassan Rohani, who scored an overwhelming election victory in June last year partly on promises to engage with the West diplomatically in order to resolve the nuclear dispute.

http://www.payvand.com/news/14/oct/1005.html

It is the first time Iranian artists have set a Twitter campaign in motion. #No2nodeal has been welcome by foreign media and renowned journalists.

At the Venice Film Festival [August 27- September 6], after her film “Tales” was screened for the competition section, Rakhshan Bani-Etemad at a news conference pleaded for sanctions to be lifted, saying, “The economic situation in Iran is critical thanks to economic sanctions. In fact, the Iranians are paying the price for the sanctions. Having made this film, I want to show the destructive effects that Western sanctions have had on the lives of ordinary people. Our children who are suffering from diseases like cancer and multiple sclerosis are actually taking the brunt of the sanctions. I would like these sanctions to be lifted and someone should answer to people.”

US-based attorney, Thomas Whalen: sanctions on Iranian airlines are detrimental to airline safety and violate the Chicago Convention

Iran Air’s US-based attorney, Thomas Whalen from the aviation law practice of Washington firm Eckert Seamans Cherin and Mellott, argues that sanctions in international aviation are detrimental to all involved

The USA continues to impose sanctions on Iranian carriers that are detrimental to airline safety and violate the Chicago Convention.
The economic sanctions the USA has imposed against Iran for the last 25- plus years not only block trade but also prevent carriers in Iran from obtaining US-made aircraft as well as engines and parts which are needed to maintain the safety of their fleets. The sanctions are detrimental to aviation safety and are endangering the lives of passengers travelling on Iran Air, other Iranian carriers and foreign airlines which operate to Iran. As a result, these sanctions violate the commitment to airline safety made by the USA, Iran and most nations of the world in 1944 when the Chicago Convention was forged.
