|On the left are the Sunnis such as IS and most Arab nations and on right is Shia Iran who is supporting all the terrorists except IS who they are fighting against.|
|President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran from 2005-2013 His hatred of Israel is from his religion. Under the auspices and direction of the Ayatollah, he said, "Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury." What he believed: , "Prior to the United Nations even being formed, Palestine was a country. But the right of the Palestinian people were trampled, and unfortunately, international organizations contributed to those rights being trampled." This is a false belief. There never was a country of Palestine. and "The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of the war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. Also, he said, "|

Twelvers believe that the Twelve Imams are the spiritual and political successors to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. According to the theology of Twelvers, the Twelve Imams are exemplary human individuals who not only rule over the community in justice, but also are able to keep and interpret sharia and the esoteric meaning of the Quran. The words and deeds (Sunnah) of Muhammad and the Imams are a guide and model for the community to follow; as a result, Muhammad and the Imams must be free from error and sin, known as Ismah or infallibility, and must be chosen by divine decree, or nass, through Muhammad.

|Ayatollah Khamenei wants to destroy Israel|
The panel seemed to be confused since Iran is going after IS which is something we all think is a good thing, except here, we shouldn't be relying on Iran to do this. How then, can they go after Iran for wanting to destroy Israel, they are thinking. Stephens on the panel thought that we need to back our friends, such as Israel. Vali Nasr was another panel member, is Iranian born and son of a religious scholar. Vali is an author and "is a member of the State Department's Foreign Affairs Policy Board and served as senior advisor to the U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, between 2009 and 2011. He is a Life Member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Fareed said, "Iran and the United States do have some overlapping interests in Afghanistan, for example, where we both, you know, don't like the Taliban. In Iraq, Syria, where we both don't like ISIS." Vali replied with "Well, absolutely. I think if you look at what is Iran's major headache in the region is ISIS and it's the sort of Sunni surge that they're seeing in Syria and Iraq. And that's what's going to preoccupy them."
They neglected to add that Iran is backing Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Those are direct terrorists against Israel.
The USA John Kerry-Obama plan rests on an IF, if you ask me. IF Iran changes in the future and IF the Moshiach comes and changes them. There is no indication they will change since they are ruled by an Ayatollah, which is a religious ruler, and the next one is thought to be someone even more of an ultra hard-liner than the present one.
Robin Wright was a guest on the show. They brought out that Iran wants to talk about other issues, now. I'm sure that since they think they've been successful with this deal, they will now go after Israel with the West. The panel agreed that the dominating states in the Middle East today are not the Arabs but are Iran, Turkey and Israel. Iran feels they are surrounded by Sunnis and doesn't like it. You can bet that the Sunnis don't like the idea of Iran having nuclear power, either. What they are talking about is arming themselves with the same things now. Nuclear power is wanted by the whole Middle East because of this deal with Iran.
