DEBKAfile Exclusive Report November 25, 2013, 10:04 PM (IDT)
Tags: Barack Obama, US-Iran, US-Israel, US-Saudi Arabia, Middle East, [Iranian president and nuclear negotiators cheered at home] debkafiles exclusive Washington sources reveal exclusively: President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry secretly agreed to elevate Iran to the status of seventh world power, as a strong inducement for signing the interim nuclear accord in Geneva Sunday, Nov. 24, for living up to its obligations in the coming six months and for then signing a comprehensive agreement.
While Iran has always demanded respect and equal standing as a regional power, never in their wildest dreams had the ayatollahs expected to be granted big power standing, with an authoritative role recognized by the six big powers for addressing issues in a broad region spanning the Persian Gulf, the Middle East and Western Asia, including Afghanistan.
debkafiles Iranian sources report that President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif presented this awesome achievement Monday to their hard-line critics at home, who accused them of giving away too much in terms of Irans nuclear program for the sake of a deal with the West.
We come home from Geneva with recognition as a world power, they replied.
The small print of Irans new rating is not yet in place, but Western sources familiar with the new US-Iranian understandings say they would not be surprised to find President Rouhani sitting in future summits on the same side of the table as the six powers who faced Iran in the Geneva negotiations. Zarif would also attend future foreign ministers meetings as an world-class equal. Jerusalem and Riyadh are aghast at this development. Our Jerusalem sources report that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has kept it back from his cabinet colleagues, has been holding back-to-back confidential consultations with the heads of Israels security and intelligence services and the high IDF command to decide how to handle Obamas sudden replacement of Israel with Iran as Americas No. 1 ally in the region. Most immediately, a hostile Iran with a role in the ongoing US-sponsored negotiations with the Palestinians does not bear thinking off.
The Saudi royal house is deep in similarly anxious and angry discussions. Some of debkafiles Western and Israeli sources in the two capitals say Israel and Saudi Arabia both find Irans promotion to world status more shocking and deleterious even than its pretensions to a nuclear weapon. Neither had imagined the Obama administration capable of an about face so extreme. debkafile has obtained full details of the secret US-Iranian deal as concluded between Kerry and Zarif in Geneva and endorsed by the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers. They will be revealed in the coming DEBKA Weekly Issue No. 613 out next Friday, Nov. 29.
Always keep an eye on Israel.
I like your tag line.
Amen, God will save Israel and make His only begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord, the King of earth who will rule in Zion, the city of our God and Father, the only true God, the God of Israel.
I think the policy of the Iranian regime is to provoke enough Western hostility so as to wrap themselves up with the Iranian flag as the defenders of the three thousand year old Persian civilization against the implacable West. This distracts the public while the Tehran big shots continue to plunder the nation.
Meanwhile, al-Qaeda stands by laughing as all their adversaries fight among themselves.
The best solution, now that our oil situation has improved, is to generally vacate that region and quit being used as the perpetual pawn and mercenaries for regional politicians and royal families.
I knew two Christian USAF fighter pilots who told their superiors during a routine security check that they would not go to war against Israel.
I’m waiting and ready to be in that invasion army!
With a closet muslim in the presidency this is no surprise.
Glad I ain’t gonna be here for those 7 years. Keep looking up!!!
The O admin continues to do the work of lucifer himself
I feel we are a matter of months, maybe a year, away from a major war in Israel.
Israel HAS NEVER possessed all the land God promised. If God promised it, IT WILL HAPPEN.
Israel has been majorly attacked 3 times. And each time Israel acquired more land.
Ezekiel 28: 24 No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors who are painful briers and sharp thorns. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord. 25 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: When I gather the people of Israel from the nations where they have been scattered, I will be proved holy through them in the sight of the nations. Then they will live in their own land, which I gave to my servant Jacob. 26 They will live there in safety and will build houses and plant vineyards; they will live in safety when I inflict punishment on all their neighbors who maligned them. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God.
Israel has never lived in safety and Israels surrounding enemies have never been punished.
I believe the Bible describes 2 upcoming wars with Israel and I believe we are virtually at the doorsteps for them.
Like your profile page.
There will be a lot of chagrined people at the Final Judgement.
Israel has got God’s promise upon her. And this promise is backed by the Cross, even though that’s a Cross that the modern Jews at large don’t even believe in yet.
Israel is going to get many trials, and yet she is going to prevail, then one day it will dawn on her what God was doing. Isaiah 53 is going to make a whole lot more sense to her then.
Safety can be relative. In this mortal coil there never, ever is any lack of what we call risk.
Given how much Israel’s neighbors hate her guts, Israel has done pretty blessed well, I’d say.
mm, I do expect that it is upon us. Either in evil O’s next 3 years or possibly a Hillary timeframe. May God pour His grace upon Israel and those of us who know what lies ahead. I am chagrined and heartbroken. I have been waiting on this event for 39 years.
The four blood moons are coming.
neither would I
I would go to war against her enemies, though. without hesitation
God has Israel’s back.
