America and Iran must fight together Israel`s threat to peace

The lifting of international sanction on Iran by six major global powers including the USA, Russia, UK, France, Germany and China has showed that statesmanship can thwart the specter of war and give peace to the world; particularly when such risk of war was triggering in the Gulf region centering Iran's nuclear programme. But no sooner had the announcement of the lifting of the sanction come in exchange of scraping of Iran's nuclear capacity, fresh sanction by the USA on Tehran over a missile testing has unnecessarily overshadowed the beginning of a new era of responsible and trustworthy relationship between the USA and Iran. The Obama administration may have acted under pressure from US Jewish lobbies. However, it is not an international sanction, it is a sanction by the USA alone and Iran has already denounced it. We hope Iranian government will understand the Israel's arrogance about its influence on US policy and its inability to behave sensibly with regard to Muslim countries. The Jews never handled state power and now as nuclear power it has lost balance as a country especially under the leadership of Netanyahu.  The lifting of international sanctions in Vienna at the headquarters of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by Foreign Ministers of all six countries and Iran came as a relief to the peace-loving people all over the world. Iran can come out of isolation now, enter the global market, export oil and buy necessary equipment to modernize ailing industries. It can also get back its frozen assets worth around $ 100 billion now locked in different global capitals to improve the quality of life of its people. In fact Iran has to scrap its advanced nuclear capacity, send 98 percent of its enriched uranium to Russia into a safe custody, dismantled 12000 centrifuges and cemented one of the major atomic reactors designed to produce plutonium, which is used in producing bombs to get the sanction lifted. We welcome the breakthrough hoping that the fresh US sanctions would be sorted out soon so that the Iranian nation can enjoy full freedom of its sovereignty without jeopardizing peace. The agreement is the hard work of some very highly motivated elderly politicians who sought to get it done and got it through diplomacy and not by war. We appreciate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's expectations that it would open a 'golden page' in his country's history by ending the isolation and the new breakthrough for peace in the region may also work as a model to resolve other regional issues when the war in Syria, Iraq and Yemen are ruining these nations and making millions homeless. His expectation is based on reduced hostility with Washington and better understanding between the two countries. Other than Israel, a tiny country known for its brutal violation of human rights against the Palestinians the whole world is happy about the nuclear deal reached with Iran. It is sad that a brutish country telling America what is best for America.   We know peace in the region has many enemies. Israel attempted to thwart the agreement from the beginning and vowed to use its US lobbies now to defeat the agreement in the Republican majority Congress. US Secretary of States John Kerry who led the six powers negotiation said what many had doubted would ever come to pass has come to pass and he is right when he praised the Iran leaders and particularly its Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif for taking significant steps to get it done. Israel under the leadership of Netanyahu has evil influence on the USA which cannot be good for American people or peace in the world. His threat that Israel will monitor Iran's nuclear programme despite the treaty, shows how it is ready to defy international opinion. American will have to regret giving too much importance to Israel, a country full of hatred against the Muslims. The good and sensible Jews must be ready to build for themselves the agreeable image they otherwise deserve or should deserve.  We shall expect America and Iran to act together to foil the dangerous designs of Israel's Netanyahu to involve America into a serious confrontation with Muslim countries disrupting world peace. In our view, Israel under wrong leadership with nuclear weapons is the most irresponsible country for world peace and goodwill.
