Will Israel Attack Iran? Impact of Iran’s Nuclear Deal With The West

By Sikander Hayat 

Finally Iran has agreed to conditions set by the West to freeze the uranium enrichment at a level which is below the weapons grade. There will be full international inspection of Iran’s nuclear plants and if Iran goes back on any of the pledges that it has made to the international community, all sanctions will come into action again.
This is wise move by Iran but this is not the final agreement and just an initial understanding. Iran also need to stop harassing its neighbours by supporting Shia groups in these countries. It also has to stop trying to export the shia revolution to other countries.
Only once these conditions are met, Iran can become a full member of the international community.
International community also needs to help Iran to move towards full democracy and loosen the hold of Mullahs on Iranian nation. A democratic Iran will be a less of a danger for the neighbourhood than the current regime in Tehran. If the West had not conspired against the democratically elected Musadiq to bring back the Shah, Iran would have been a totally different country by now.
Western nations, especially United States need to learn from the past mistakes and make sure that democratic forces in Iran are fully supported even if in the short run matters may not go in favour of the Western world.
Israel must be stopped from making any false moves as any action by Israel will put the whole region on the edge and make matters worse for everyone.
Benjamin Netanyahu is not in favour of this deal and he is pulling all levers with the help of his friends in Washington to scuttle the deal but Obama has the power to veto any such move by the Republican Congress. Iran must not let this historic opportunity pass by and make sure that it helps Obama administration in helping Iranian cause. It is now time to use this opportunity to bring about a time of peace in the middle east region.

  1. The scale of Iran's diplomatic ambition may be measured by the increasing number of stamps in its foreign minister's passport.

    Since taking the job in August, Mohammad Javad Zarif has held talks in New York; gone to Geneva three times in order to reach an interim nuclear deal with a group of world powers; and this week, on a tour of the Gulf, he gets stamps for Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.

    The message he is hoping to convey is obvious; Iran is under new diplomatic management.

    The Islamic Republic's new government, led by President Hassan Rouhani, has set out to improve the country's position in the region and in the world.

    In particular, Mr Rouhani and Mr Zarif want to drain some of the tensions built up during the eight year administration of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In recent years, those tensions were aggravated in the Gulf. In 2011, Iran even threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz.

    Iran's relationship with the Gulf has largely been overshadowed by its historic rivalry with Saudi Arabia.

    The Kingdom sees itself as the Arab and Sunni Muslim leader of the Middle East. As such, it has long been suspicious of the reach and ambition of Iran, which is largely Persian and Shia Muslim.

    In 2010, WikiLeaks released leaked diplomatic cables which suggested Saudi encouragement for a US-led strike against Iran's nuclear facilities.

    In 2011, Saudi Arabia sent forces to Sunni-ruled Bahrain to counter what the Kingdom viewed as an Iranian attempt to influence the island's Shia majority.

    What is more, Saudi Arabia and Iran support different sides in the Syrian war.

    Wisely, perhaps, Javad Zarif sidestepped Saudi Arabia and Bahrain on his tour of the Gulf.
