I'm joking ! So happy my great brother. ';';'

There is nothing to be happy about. Iran is going to get tens of billions in cash after lifting the sanctions, which means development, expansion in all sectors as well as dramatic rise in support for it's allies in the region.

It has been always well 20 billions, 60 billions or 100 billions that is the whole story Persian against us.

At least now reciprocity we will enrich uranium too and we will harness all nuclear technologies without any losses like them.

To us not forget the great lesson, they were almost able to get the bomb.

You're exaggerating the amount of money that they will get back. Firstly, it's their money, they aren't being rewarding, they're getting access to it. Estimates claim 150$ billion will be freed or less. Which isn't much no matter how they use it. If they pump into Syria, it will cost minimum 10$ billion a year. With Lebanon/Iraq another $5 billion per year, since they pay salaries of all Hezbollah members including their normal employee services. If they use it for economic projects, it will be gone rather quickly. Then the corruption factor, some of it will be taken and added to wealth of elites.

The concern is the money they spend on promoting Shia ideology in Arab world which is probably some of their highest expenses. It includes supporting Shia militias, clerics, followers of clerics, giving money to ordinary uneducated Sunni's to become Shia, etc.... And combine that with their sectarian approach in which they act as if the Sunni Arab world or Arab world as a whole doesn't exist and it simply is Persian land they will acquire or try to acquire. Ask an Iranian how many Shia's are in Arab nations, he will tell you 40% in Kuwait, 80% in Bahrain, 30% in Syria, 90% in Iraq, 25% in Saudi Arabia, 60% in Lebanon, etc....this is their approach, its about dehumanzing and demonizing Sunni's because they hate Islam so much and have deep pride for Persian civilization. To them Shia's are Persians, and Iranians try to champion themselves as founders, developers, adherents, and victors of Islam. This is why they claim that Prophet Muhammad and his family are Persians and that Persians ran all Islamic Empires and that the evil Arab(Sahaba) try to destroy Islam through their false ideology. Obviously Iranian's recognized how great Islam is, and they want to claim it as theirs. And they're doing a very good job with sectarian agenda.

Simply because the Sunni Arab world is divided and we dictatorial yet secular leaderships that are against Islam same as Iranians but just in a different way. So they invest their time/resources targeting Muslim Brotherhood and fortyifing their power even at expense of allowing Iran to expand in the region. As long as it remains this way, nothing will change. Because Iran's target enemy are Arabs, it will obviously use this money to spread twelver ideology and try expanding more into Arab nations. Israel is not concerned about the deal, it means no harm to it. Europe is not concerned, US isn't. Because they know it only affects us Sunni Arabs. And the key to freedom is in your hands, the residents of the Arab world.

Represenatives of Ahal Al Bayt(LOL), these are the people telling us Sunni's we're Kafir:

This is what nationalism does to you.

Obama discusses Iran deal with Saudi King Salman

President Barack Obama exits Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., Tuesday, July 14, 2015. (Reuters)

By Staff writer | Al Arabiya News
Wednesday, 15 July 2015

President Barack Obama telephoned Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Tuesday from Air Force One to discuss the newly completed Iran nuclear agreement, the White House said.

Saudi Arabia expressed hope Tuesday for an end to Iran's regional "interference" after a historic nuclear deal aimed at ensuring Tehran does not obtain an atomic bomb was struck.

"Given that Iran is a neighbor, Saudi Arabia hopes to build with her better relations in all areas on the basis of good neighborliness and non-interference in internal affairs," said an official spokesman cited by the Saudi Press Agency.

Both leaders also discussed the urgent need to stop the fighting in Yemen and ensure assistance for all Yemenis through international humanitarian channels.

Obama also spoke with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan by telephone to discuss the nuclear agreement.

The United Arab Emirates welcomed the historic deal saying it could turn a “new page” for the Gulf region.

“Iran could play a (significant) role in the region if it revises its policy and stops interfering in the internal affairs of countries like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen,” a UAE official said in the first reaction from the Gulf Arab monarchies to the Vienna accord.

Meanwhile, Egypt said it “hopes that the deal between both sides is complete and prevents an arms race in the Middle East as well as ensuring the region is free of all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons.”

Obama emphasized the United States' commitment to working with Gulf partners, such as United Arab Emirates, to counter Iran's destabilizing activities in the region.

Following the calls, it was revealed that the U.S. president is sending his defense chief next week to the Middle East to reassure reassuring allies that the nuclear deal will not undermine America's commitment to their security.

U.S. defense officials told Reuters that Defense Secretary Ash Carter would travel to Israel and elsewhere within the region but declined to offer details.

The agreement between Iran and six major world powers could transform the Middle East, curbing sensitive Iranian nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief - and, in the process, upending assumptions about Tehran's isolation.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Tuesday's deal as "a stunning, historic mistake."

Offering a hint of his message to allies, Carter said in a statement about the Iran deal that the United States stood ready to "check Iranian malign influence".

"We remain prepared and postured to bolster the security of our friends and allies in the region, including Israel," he said.

The deal
Iran and major powers agreed on a mechanism under which the U.N. nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency could get access to suspect nuclear sites in Iran within 24 days, the text of the Iran nuclear agreement said.

Iran will also be allowed to conduct research and development (R&D) with uranium for advanced centrifuges during the first 10 years of a nuclear agreement with major powers, according to the text of the deal posted on the Russian foreign ministry website.

"Iran will continue to conduct enrichment R&D in a manner that does not accumulate enriched uranium," the text of the agreement said.

Tehran and the six powers had been holding marathon diplomatic negotiations at the ministerial level for more than two weeks to resolve a 12-year stand-off over Iran's nuclear program.

We only save time (20 years). We (GCC) have to use this precious time effectively, develop our own nuclear technology - uranium enrichment, plutonium -, ballistic missile - cruise missile -, space, submarine.

U.N. to vote on Iran nuclear deal ‘next week’

By Michelle Nichols | Reuters, United Nations
Wednesday, 15 July 2015

The United Nations Security Council is likely to vote next week on a resolution to endorse the Iran nuclear deal and terminate targeted sanctions, but retain an arms embargo and ballistic missile technology ban, diplomats said.

The United States will circulate the draft resolution to the 15-member Security Council on Wednesday, U.N. diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Under a historic deal between Iran and major world powers in Vienna on Tuesday, Iran agreed to long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West suspected was aimed at creating an atomic bomb. Iran has said its work is purely peaceful.

In return, the United States, European Union and United Nations would lift sanctions on Iran.

Under the agreement, any United Nations sanctions relief would be simultaneous with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verifying “implementation of agreed nuclear-related measures by Iran.”

The U.N. Security Council resolution would terminate its seven previous resolutions on Iran, but under the Vienna deal it would leave a U.N. weapons embargo in place for five years and a ban on buying missile technology for eight years.

The five permanent veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council - the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France - were parties to the deal agreed with Iran in Vienna, along with Germany and the European Union.

The U.N. resolution to endorse the deal would also enshrine a mechanism for all Security Council sanctions to be automatically re-imposed if Iran breaches the deal.

According to the Vienna deal, the six world powers, Iran and the European Union will form a Joint Commission to handle any complaints about breaches. If the complaining state is not satisfied with how the commission addresses its concerns, it could then take its grievance to the U.N. Security Council.

The Security Council would then need to vote on a resolution to continue the lifting of sanctions on Iran.

If such a resolution has not been adopted within 30 days of the council receiving the complaint of a breach, then the sanctions contained in all previous U.N. resolutions would be re-imposed, unless the council decided otherwise.

If the nuclear deal is adhered to, all the provisions and measures of the U.N. resolution would terminate 10 years after its adoption and the Iran nuclear issue would be removed from the Security Council agenda.

Iran nuclear deal should be scrutinized carefully: Khamenei

Wednesday, 15 July 2015

The text of a nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers should be carefully scrutinized and legal procedures taken so the other side does not breach it, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said in his first public statements on the accord.

Iran and six world powers reached a deal on Tuesday, capping more than a decade of negotiations with an agreement that could transform the Middle East.

Under the deal, sanctions imposed by the United States, the European Union and the United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing long-term curbs on a nuclear program that the West has suspected was aimed at creating a nuclear bomb.

In a letter to Iranian President Hassan Rowhani, Khamenei, the ultimate authority on all matters of state, wrote: “Reaching a deal is a significant step, but the text of the deal should be carefully scrutinized and the legal procedures should be taken so when the deal is ratified the other side cannot breach it.”

“Some of the members of the P5+1 are not trustworthy,” he said referring to the six world powers in the letter, published by state news agency IRNA.

He added: “I ask our dear nation to stay calm and united so we can preserve our national interests in a serene and sensible environment.”

Good joke ! As if Rowhani had accepted this agreement without the complet approval of Khamenei and his accomplices mullahs.

They did so only because they had no choice. Between that and have a mass popular revolution to lose their power because people are dying hunger, they have chosen to lower the pants.

Pro-Israel lobby backs group to fight Iranian nuclear deal

The Associated Press, Washington
Saturday, 18 July 2015
A powerful pro-Israel lobby is backing a new political group that on Friday launched a multimillion-dollar campaign to oppose the nuclear pact the United States recently made with Iran.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is supporting an independent action committee called Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, dedicated to preventing Iran from obtaining the capacity to obtain nuclear weapons.

Spokesman Patrick Dorton said Friday that the group is launching a national TV and digital ad campaign in many media markets around the country.

"Democrats should be especially concerned because the deal increases the chances of war, will spur a nuclear arms race and rewards an Iran with a horrific human rights record," Dorton said.

The group's website lists an advisory board of five former Democratic and independent lawmakers - one-time Sens. Evan Bayh of Indiana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut along with former Rep. Shelley Berkley of Nevada.

On the other side of the issue, liberal groups, such as the Jewish Middle East lobby known as J Street, also are buying national ads to shore up congressional support for the deal.

Those for and against the agreement, which gives Tehran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbing its nuclear program, are lobbying lawmakers who have not yet decided whether or not to support the deal. A vote in Congress is expected after the August recess.

Pentagon chief heads to Mideast after Iran deal

U.S. Secretary of Defence Ashton Carter visits the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, Germany June 22, 2015. (Reuters)

AFP, Washington
Saturday, 18 July 2015

U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter heads next week to Israel and Saudi Arabia -- a diplomatic charm offensives to two countries that have expressed serious concerns over the Iran nuclear deal.

Carter, who will also visit Jordan, will be renewing U.S. security commitments in the region, some of which serve as a buffer to Iran's "destabilizing behavior," a senior Pentagon official said Friday.

On Tuesday, Carter will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has lambasted the landmark agreement as a "historic mistake."

Netanyahu has also repeatedly threatened to take military action if necessary to prevent Tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

"The deal won't change radically what we do here at the Defense Department," the U.S. official insisted, dismissing suggestions of increased U.S. military aid to Israel or Saudi Arabia, or new arms deals with them.

"We are committed to maintaining a strong presence, particularly in the Gulf."

Carter's wide-ranging conversations with his counterparts and other officials are expected to also cover military and weapons procurement.

"But frankly, they are the same conversation we would have if there was no deal that had been signed," the official said.

Israel has long opposed any deal with its arch-foe Iran.

The Jewish state is believed to have the Middle East's sole, if undeclared, nuclear arsenal.

"We will be prepared and postured to support the security of our allies, particularly Israel," the U.S. official said.

Carter will hold meetings in Israel on Monday and Tuesday, before traveling to Saudi Arabia and Jordan, though the details of his schedule have not yet been finalized.

In Jordan, he will visit a military base to meet colleagues of a Jordanian pilot who was burned alive by the Islamic State group.

The base, not far from the Syrian border, is used by several countries participating in the U.S.-led anti-IS coalition

His Israel tour had been planned before the Iran nuclear deal was signed, but President Barack Obama announced the visit publicly soon after the agreement was signed Tuesday.

UK PM: Nuke deal does not mean aligning with Iran
David Cameron, pictured in the interview, added that the landmark accord would stop the Middle East spiralling into an “arms race.”

Staff writer, Al Arabiya News
Friday, 17 July 2015

The landmark nuclear deal with Iran does not represent an alignment with the Islamic republic, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday with an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya News Channel.

“Let me be clear, by signing this deal Britain is not aligning with Iran,” said Cameron.

“This deal is all about keeping Iran away from nuclear weapon and this deal is so much better the alternative. To me no deal would have meant Iran with a nuclear weapon,” he added.

Cameron said that his government remains “tough” on Tehran’s “support for terrorism” and “destabilization of other countries,” - including the Islamic republic's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

“We stand with our important Gulf allies in those views.”

He also added that the landmark accord - the final stages of which were hammered out in a Vienna hotel earlier this month - would stop the Middle East spiralling into an “arms race.”

“We have taken Iran away from nuclear weapon but of course it is acceptable to develop civil nuclear energy,” said Cameron, referring to Tehran’s long-held claim that its nuclear program is peaceful. “We can have other countries with civil nuclear energy but staying away from nuclear weapons. This is in line with the non-proliferation treaty.”

Britain and the U.S. have been keen to ease the concerns of their Gulf allies, who are worried that the deal will result in Iran gaining more power.
