ECI Statement on the Implementation Agreement with Iran

Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released the following statement on the announcement that the P5+1 had reached an agreement with Iran on implementing the November, 2013 Geneva Agreement: 

Who says President Obama isn't tough?

With today's announcement of an implementation agreement with Iran,
President Obama has shown a willingness to be tough in confronting the
pro-Israel majority in Congress, threatening to veto any legislation
that would punish Iranian deception or prevent the White House from
acquiescing to a bad deal with Iran.

With Iran, on the other hand, Obama is willing to accept an agreement
that weakens even the original bad deal he announced two months ago.
It is a deal that guarantees a permanent Iranian nuclear weapons
capability and grants a new concession by allowing Iran to continue
developing ever more advanced centrifuges during the talks. It is a
deal that, as Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister boasted today, rolls back
nothing and means Iran "can return to the previous situation within a
day."

We urge Senator Reid to allow a vote on the Menendez-Kirk bill to
ensure that the interests of America and our allies are not
subordinated to the political interests of the Obama White House.

Note ALSO how this locution from the person within the administration Obama has directed to tackle the matter COMPLETELY BACKS OFF FROM AND REVISES the administration’s prior commitment to not allowing Iran to possess nuclear weapons: " … it’s not clear why any member of Congress would support a bill that possibly closes the door on diplomacy and makes it more likely that the United States will have to choose between military options or allowing Iran’s nuclear program to proceed.”

So, here we have it. Where before stated American policy under Bush and, at least nominally/lexically as formulated under the Hussein administration, was that America is committed to preventing this, now America’s position as stated is that at some point America will or might have to CHOOSE between taking military action and allowing Iran to HAVE nuclear weapons. Can ANYONE believe that this statement and its implications have been lost on the mullahs?

Sigh. Reid will not buck the President. He will not bring it to the floor. Please, God, let me be wrong.
