Ex-Israeli ambassador advises Biden against re-entering the Iran nuclear deal

Ex-Israeli ambassador and World Likud chairman Danny Danon joined Fox News host Eric Shawn Sunday to encourage the Biden administration to continue the peace initiatives created by President Donald Trump in the Middle East.

“Great things happened in 2020 and we are grateful for President Trump for his leadership – moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and pushing the peace initiative in the region,” Danon said.

Danon noted how he has experienced the strengthened relationships between Israel and the Arab states firsthand.

“I flew to Dubai a few years ago and it was a very sensitive visit. Today, you have 14 flights a week from Tel Aviv to Dubai so we see the fruits of peace already and we are excited about it,” he said. “It’s peace among the people, not only among the leaders.”

Danon said he hopes the new administration will “continue the momentum” created by President Trump and not re-enter the Iran nuclear deal agreement.

“I hope the President-elect will continue with the momentum because it’s good not only for Israel and not only for the modern Arab country, it’s good for the U.S.”

“We have to work together,” he continued. “I would advise the new administration: first thing, not Iran and negotiations with Iranians, on the contrary, first speak with the US allies to speak with them about their concerns, about their approach to Iran, and then think what to do. I think that would be the wisest thing to do.”

Biden has expressed plans on rejoining the Iran nuclear deal once he takes office.

Danon advised against rejoining the deal, and instead proposed the Biden administration “not to listen to the Iranians, to apply more sanctions and not to try to appease them.”

“When you try to appease them, they take advantage of it and I think it will be bad for the U.S. to play that game.”

Danon said he would “recommend the new administration to apply more pressure, to work with the allies in the region, and if the Iranians would be willing to change the agreement which I doubt it, you can speak about it,” he said.

“But you don’t run immediately and hug them and give them what they want.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
