Exclusive: Obama’s Secret Iran Détente

As usual, DEBKAfile proves to be spot on and ahead of the curve. The deal was done months before it came to light. This is anything but a peaceful measure since the Iranians give nothing away in return for being let off the leash. As a result, war is imminent, as Israel is now backed into a corner and tasked with protecting its very own existence by means of preemptive strike, or option two, which is to get hit first. The former will likely be what happens. As also was mentioned beforehand, in order to somewhat gauge what direction things will turn, look no further than what leaves Israel with the proverbial short end of the stick. In the end, by design, its aim is to paint Israel as the neighborhood aggressor, enabling a “justified” reason to end the Jewish state’s existence.

Mystery of missing ayatollah: Ali Khamenei’s three-week seclusion for work on nuclear deal with US

Should the allegation be true, see you in December. Should the allegation be true, expect Israel to be discouraged from an attack on Iran until roughly that time as well. Then once the said deal goes through, Israel will likely see it for the farce it is and once again be faced with the inevitable decision to strike or risk annihilation by a suicidal nuclear neighbor, allowing for both Obama and Iran to portray the Jewish state as the aggressor. As a rule of thumb in these times, if you want to guage somewhat which direction the situation will turn in the Middle East, usually whatever chosen option is worse for Israel will be the most accurate. War is still on the horizon simply because Israel cannot be forced into not defending its very existence.

Spy services world wide have been mystified by the unusual absence from public view of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for nearly three weeks. He was last seen in public on Oct. 5 visiting the military college in Tehran with army chiefs.

According to one theory, he suffered a relapse from a chronic ailment and was secretly treated in the small hospital installed at his home. Another suggested he had gone into seclusion to escape the furor raging in his regime over the future of Iran’s nuclear program and relations wit the United States.

This dissonance erupted most recently in conflicting statements issued Friday, Oct. 26: One official reported that 20 percent uranium enrichment had been halted – only to be contradicted by another. Continue reading
