Emerging ‘bad deal’ with Iran
puts Israel on offensive

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued in private meetings on Monday to express concern about an emerging “bad deal” between the world powers and Iran, a clear sign that his discussion with US President Barack Obama in Washington three weeks ago left him unconvinced.

Netanyahu repeated in private discussions on Monday the warning he gave publicly on Sunday – that an agreement is emerging that would “leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, with thousands of centrifuges through which Iran can manufacture the material for a nuclear bomb within a short period of time.”

One government official said Netanyahu’s “No. 1 concern” is that an agreement – which the world powers and Tehran are trying to hammer out before a November 24 deadline – would leave Iran with enough centrifuges in place to allow it to hover above nuclear threshold status.

Uncertain if all Iranian nuke work is peaceful

VIENNA — The head of the UN nuclear agency Yukiya Amano sounded a note of caution about Iran’s claims that it is not interested in nuclear arms, saying he cannot guarantee that all the country’s atomic activities are civilian in nature.

Though not new, Yukiya Amano’s comments Monday are significant amid a renewed deadlock in the 12-year probe by his International Atomic Agency of suspected nuclear weapons work by Iran.

One-fifth of incoming UN Security
Council has no ties with Israel

The United Nations voted in five countries last week to begin serving two-year stints on the Security Council, beginning on January 1. Although there was some good news for Israel in the results, most of it was bad.

The good news is that the Turkey of Israel-bashing President Recep Tayyip Erdogan failed in its bid for one of the five rotating, non-permanent seats, losing in balloting to Spain. The bad news is that of the five new members, two of them – Venezuela and Malaysia – do not even have diplomatic relations with Israel.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
