Now we’re paying for the Iranian nuclear program. “We will hang the capitalists with the rope that they sell us,” as Lenin is supposed to have said. “Israeli officials: U.S. admits Iran will get $20b from sanctions relief,” by Amos Harel for Haaretz, December 11 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):

Senior officials in the administration of President Barack Obama have conceded over the past few days in conversations with colleagues in Israel that the value of the economic sanctions relief to Iran could be much higher than originally thought in Washington, security sources in Israel told Haaretz.

In official statements by the United States immediately after the agreement limiting Iran’s nuclear program was signed in Geneva between Iran and theF [sic] six powers at the end of November it was said that the economic relief Iran would receive in exchange for signing the agreement would be relatively low — $6 billion or $7 billion. Israeli assessments were much higher — about $20 billion at least.

The United States had originally intended to make do with unfreezing Iranian assets in the amount of $3 billion to $4 billion. But during negotiations in Geneva, the P5+1 countries backtracked from their opening position and approved much more significant relief in a wide variety of areas: commerce in gold, the Iranian petrochemical industry, the car industry and replacement parts for civilian aircraft. But the Americans said at the time that this would at most double the original amount.

However according to the Israeli version, the Americans now concede in their talks with Israel that the sanctions relief are worth much more. According to the security sources: “Economics is a matter of expectations. The Iranian stock exchange is already rising significantly and many countries are standing in line to renew economic ties with Iran based on what was already agreed in Geneva.” The sources mentioned China’s desire to renew contracts worth some $9 billion to develop the Iranian oil industry and the interest some German companies are showing for deals with Tehran. “In any case, it’s about 20 or 25 billion dollars. Even the Americans understand this,” the sources said….

    Would it not be just like God to get the people of the U.S. to send money to their enemy, Iran, to help build the bomb which would punish the people of the U.S. for their sins? Wouldn’t it be just like God to arrange such a thing? There was the occasion in the days of the Old Testament that God gave His people a leader that gave bad advice and the result was that Israel was punished for her sins.

    Now if a nation pays money to a sworn enemy, for whatever reason, can that nation survive? I don’t think so…..
    Don’t forget, the nation paying the sworn enemy is paying them to annihilate Israel. But the devil may have other plans.
