Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Thursday that the Iran nuclear deal is “in the ER room” as an agreement between the US and Iran to revive the accord seems increasingly unlikely.
Israel has ramped up the pressure on the Biden administration to harden its stance in the negotiations with Iran, and it appears to have worked. “The Iran nuclear deal seems like it is in the ER room,” Gantz said at Reichman University in Herzliya, Israel, according to Reuters.
“There’s a period maybe after the elections, we’ll see how it goes,” Gantz said, referring to the US midterm elections that will be held in November. An unnamed Israeli official told reporters earlier this week that a deal was unlikely before the US midterms.
On Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that an agreement with Iran was “unlikely,” in the clearest indication yet from the Bidena administration that a deal won’t happen. He put all the blame on Iran and accused the Iranians of being “unwilling” to negotiate an agreement.
While Blinken puts all the blame on Iran, the Biden administration has taken a hardline approach to Tehran and has continued and expanded the so-called “maximum pressure campaign” of the Trump administration. Throughout the negotiations, the US implemented new sanctions and is reportedly considering more.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the administration is considering adding sanctions on Iran over the stabbing of author Salman Rushdie, an incident Tehran has said it was not involved with. Former Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini called for Rushdie’s death back in the 1980s, but there’s been no evidence linking Tehran to his recent stabbing, which was carried out by a 24-year-old Lebanese-American.

No one can negotiate when one party is unwilling to negotiate.
Neither Biden nor the Israelis want to negotiate, they want more war and nothing else.
IsraHell is hell-bent on killing JCPOA because its implementation would give them no “excuse” to bomb Iranian targets and assassinate Iranian scientists.
Iran developing a nuclear weapon would prove an excellent way to flip off Amerikkka and IsraHell. “There. Don’t you wish you’d have negotiated the agreement?”
Yes, the Deal is in the ER, and not likely to survive.
The glee of the murderer standing at the door does not make that any less true.

But if you admit to shooting a journalist in the face, you just have to say you’re sorry and the $4 billion will still be forthcoming. I’ll be waiting for the MSM to point out the unbelievable blatant hypocrisy, but I won’t hold my breath.
I hadn’t seen this before I made my comment.
Yes, please don’t hold your breath, the MSM people are very well paid to spin the news.
Or not give it.
Not giving is lying by omission.

Election in US and Israel First… The deal Second, if ever…!
Maybe for the mid term Biden can fool the people, but a second term for him is out, not just because of age, he likes war as long as others pay the bill. His administration is really bizarre, they are as demented as the old man is.
Unfortunately, we will have one senile crazy old fucker in office come 2024. Whether Biden or Trump, we are screwed.
It would be, if that was the choice. I tend to think 2 years is a long time for ambitious politicians to leave it to two such losers.
Unfortunately, I don’t think the new replacements are likely to be any different, not any better at all.
