The leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, made a speech on Wednesday from a mosque in Tehran and today posted a tweet with similar words. Those words have caused quite a stir mainly due to the fact that in each he states that the Zionist regime (Israel), "will not see next 25 years."https://twitter.com/khamenei_ir/status/641520641724780544?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
In addition to the remarks made toward Israel, which align with Iran's Mullah's barrage against Israel, he also added this: “We approved talks with the United States about the nuclear issue specifically. We have not allowed talks with the US in other fields and we will not negotiate with them. The Iranian nation ousted the Satan. We should not let it back through the window,' he said, referring to the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the US-backed shah.
This is of course referring to the negotiations between the United States, Iran and five other countries regarding Iran's nuclear program. The comments do not help President Obama's agenda of pushing this deal through congress, although he did get help today when Senate democrats blocked a resolution to stop the deal by Republicans.
The agreement involves limiting Iran's nuclear production for 10 years and Tehran's access to nuclear fuel and equipment for 15 years in return for hundreds of millions of dollars in sanctions relief. The disapproval vote fell shy of the necessary 60 required to move to a final vote, it was 58 - 42.
While that goes on in the Senate, the House Republicans have vowed to fight on. Which led to this being spoken by Speaker of the House, John Boehner: "This debate is far from over," he said during his weekly press conference. "And, frankly, it is just the beginning. This is a bad deal with decades long consequences for the security of the American people our allies. We will use every tool at our disposal to stop, slow and delay this agreement from being fully implemented."
