It’s worthwhile quoting the excellent Melanie Phillips regarding the debacle of the nuclear agreement with Iran.
After the deal was signed, the White House said that, “Israel has ‘good reason to be sceptical about Tehran’s intentions…”
Think about that for a moment. Being ‘sceptical about Tehran’s intentions’ means you think it is lying about those intentions. If the White House thinks Israel has good reason to believe Iran is lying, it follows that the White House must also think Iran is lying. If the White House thinks Iran is lying, how could it have done this ‘confidence building’ deal and part-lifted the sanctions regime imposed upon this lying, West-attacking, Jew-hating regime?
The closing words of George Orwell’s Animal Farm come irresistibly to mind: The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to big, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.’.
Animal Farm? More like a zoo, I’d say. Only it’s the political animals we call our leaders who are on the outside looking in. We ordinary folk are the poor two-legged saps behind bars, our fears fed yet again by the crass idiocy of appeasement.
