Israel threatens attack of Iran if Biden returns to Nuclear Deal

Several Israeli government officials have said if U.S. returns to the JCPOA agreement Israel will go it alone against Iran. In 2015 a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was agreed upon.

In 2018 the United States withdrew from the agreement because Iran failed to comply.  Critics of JCPOA claim the agreement did not stop Iran from developing weapons.  After 10 years the limit of centrifuges was lifted. In 15 years the limits on low-enrichment stock pile of uranium was lifted.  The JCPOA did not stop Iran from research in warhead weaponization or missile research.  In 2030 Iran will have a green light to build nuclear weapons. 

While the JCPOA had provisions for inspecting enrichment facilities, none existed for inspecting bomb-making sites. Intelligence sources determined that the rockets Iran has developed for its space program could be converted to ICBMs. Israel has vowed to prevent the regime from going nuclear. The Iranians have invested money to develop hardened centrifuge operations underground and difficult to destroy with Israel air raids. However, enrichment plants such as Natanz could be vulnerable to precise bunker-busting bombing. At least entrances could be closed, and delicate centrifuge machines could be damaged by shaking bunkers. 

The Jerusalem Post reports Iran is enriching uranium to a 20% level, which exceeds the 3.67% limit imposed by the JCPOA. Iran is believed to be six weeks, away if they tried to break out to produce enough 90% material for a weapon. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has chosen Robert Malley to be the point person to negotiate an agreement with Iran. President Biden has said he wants to re-establish the JCPOA. 

Persia is mentioned by name in the Bible 29 times. Persia changed its name to Iran in 1935. The Persian King Cyrus was named by Isaiah 200 years before his birth. In 565 B.C. Ezekiel 38 said in the last days the Jews would return from the sword and return to the land of Israel. In verse 38:5 Ezekiel said Iran (Persia) would attack Israel with other nations, but God would protect Israel and prove to the world he was God.
