David Rubin, former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and author of “Trump and The Jews” speaks to Iran’s threat to enrich weapons-grade Uranium after July 7, and thereby developing and placing atomic bombs in their hands toward the end of 2019. It would make Iran a nuclear power on par with China, Russia, and the United States.
While former Senator John Kerry took the position that the world should allow Iran to have free reign to enrich uranium to see if they use it for peaceful means at issue is what is prudent? Senator Kerry’s ‘trust them’ approach or President Trump’s position distrustful of Iran?
With that background in mind, we make inquiry of David Rubin In answering the following questions.
1. Are we to take Iran seriously when they threaten to enrich uranium to the level necessary to make atomic bombs? Do they have the necessary expertise to do so?
2. If Iran successfully makes atomic bombs, and since they already have missile delivery systems in place to hit their targets, what targets might they have in mind?
3. How do we know if Iran would even play by the rules if Trump were to meet their demands and lift sanctions while they run the clock again on sanctions and enrichment discussions?
4. What about the possible scenario of Iran playing by the rules but using proxies / surrogates to engage in deniable dirty deeds, so Iran looks like the good guy? And have they ever done that before?
5. Iran’s ‘supreme ruler’ Rouhani tweeted that Trump is “afflicted by mental retardation” and that his new sanctions against Iran have “end the chance of diplomacy forever.” So, what exactly are these discussions he seeks if they are not diplomatic talks?
6. In the event the United States allows Iran to resume weapons-grade uranium enrichment, and if the U. S. Congress blocks President Trump from launching an air strike against Iran’s weapons facilities, do you think Israel will take unilateral action against Iran? Has Israel engaged in such conduct in the past?
7. The world now knows President Trump decided not to go forward with an air strike counter strike after Iran downed an unmanned U.S. drone. Is it appropriate to suggest that President Trump showed compassion over the estimated 150 Iranian deaths that a proposed American military strike would have caused? If so, why would Iran’s President Rouhani respond with vitriol, threatening the U.S. with their July 7 demands?
8. David Rubin discussed Iran extensively in his most recent book “Trump and the Jews”. Why ask him to share his insight into the consistently elusive albeit evolving situation with Iran.
