Debate On The Deal Continues In US Senate With Proponents And Opponents Flinging Mud At Each Other

Debate On The Deal Continues In US Senate With Proponents And Opponents Flinging Mud At Each Other

The US Senate continues debate on finalising the nuclear deal with Iran even as it rejected an amendment that required US President Barack Obama to take comprehensive responsibility of Iran not being involved in any terrorist activity. The condition is likely to have jeopardized all hopes of the deal seeing the light of the day. Obama is most likely to have vetoed the bill in the wake of the amendment being made a law.

It required 60 votes to get through the US Congress, but it fell short of 15 votes. The proposed amendment is the second in the row of failed attempts to bring the bill down.

Republican Senators are wary of the aggressive and fickle nature of the Iranian government. They are fed up of the hostile moves made by Tehran in the past. They view the deal as an instrument to put an end to all this.

There was even a proposal by Ben Carson, the 2016 presidential candidate, that Iran should give due recognition to Israel if it wants a waiver of economic sanctions. The matter is hard to swallow for the Iranian leaders.

A Democrat leader from the US Senate pointed out that it is more important to curb Iran's potentials to get hold of nuclear weapons than to check Iran's ambitions with regard to Israel.

The reaction with respect to Israel is considered a hysteria by US Secretary of State John Kerry. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the toughest critic of the deal between the world powers and Iran. The deal offers  a relief from the economic sanctions crippling the economy in Iran in return for bringing the nuclear establishment in Iran under scrutiny of the global nuclear watchdog, International Atomic Energy Agency.
