While critics of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action have focused on the
many days that can pass before inspectors can finally be sent, against
Iran’s wishes, to Iranian facilities, it turns out that they will NEVER be
That’s because 5 members of the Joint Commission have to vote in favor of
the move and one of those votes is held by a radical communist.
Details of the background of Federica Mogherini, who was appointed High
Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on 1
November 2014 for a term of 5 years, can be found in the article below by
Here’s the relevant part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action:
“DISPUTE RESOLUTION MECHANISM
,,, 78. … In the absence of an agreement, the members of the Joint
Commission, by consensus or by a vote of 5 or more of its 8 members, would
advise on the necessary means to resolve the IAEA’s concerns. ”
And here is the composition of the Joint Commission:
“1. The Joint Commission is comprised of representatives of Iran and the
E3/EU+3 (China, France, Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom,
and the United States, with the High Representative of the Union for Foreign
Affairs and Security Policy), together, the JCPOA participants.”
That’s right – without the vote of Federica Mogherini there will never be an
inspection that Iran opposes.
The Communist Fingerprints on Iran’s Bomb
August 24, 2015 7:32 pm Author:Michael Widlanski
A month from today or a year from today, an Iranian scientist or general
might defect to the West – and present hard proof that Iran has broken the
rules of its nuclear agreement, and is building nuclear bombs.
That’s how the West learned about some of Saddam Hussein’s weapons
programs – after his two son-in-laws defected – but such an occurrence will
have no effect on Iran.
There will be no military action and no sanctions against Iran, because of
three Communist figures that support Islamic extremists:
– Vladimir Putin, the ex-KGB official, who protected Syria’s bio-chemical
warfare program and who jumped at the chance to sell anti-aircraft missiles
to Iran’s bomb-makers;
– The Chinese Communist regime, which has helped Islamist regimes and
organizations (such as the maniacs in southern Sudan);
– And Federica Mogherini, the foreign minister of the European Union, who is
a long-time Communist and a noted sympathizer of Islamists.
Even if Barack Obama, John Kerry, or Hillary Clinton had an amazing change
of heart after seeing new evidence of Iranian bomb-making, they could not
overturn the “P5+1” accord, because three of the five – Russia, China, and
the EU – are in Iran’s pocket and bound to block action.
The neo-communist Putin and the Communist Party of China are no surprise,
but few Western analysts or journalists – let alone Obama Administration
officials – have spoken of the strong built-in Communist and pro-Islamist
tendencies of EU Minister Mogherini, who was a member of the Italian
Communist Youth Federation from 1988 to 1996.
The Italian Communist Party changed its name to the Social Democratic Party,
but Mogherini has never disavowed her Communist roots or her sympathies for
On the contrary, she has re-asserted them.
“Islam belongs in Europe,” declared Mogherini, the 43-year-old EU foreign
minister, in a conference in Brussels on June 24, 2015.
“The idea of a clash between Islam and ‘the West’,” she said, “has misled
our policies and our narratives,” repudiating the ideas of political
scientist Samuel Huntington and Islamic scholar Bernard Lewis.
Mogherini, who holds a bachelor’s degree in political science, wrote her
senior thesis on Islam, though she apparently does not read or speak any
Middle Eastern languages.
“Islam holds a place in our Western societies. Islam belongs in Europe,”
declared Mogherini, who served as the EU’s top negotiator with the Islamist
regime in Iran.
“It (Islam) holds a place in Europe’s history, in our culture, in our food
and – what matters most – in Europe’s present and future. Like it or not,
this is the reality,” asserted Mogherini, who has also been criticized
inside Europe for her lack of experience and for sympathizing with the
actions of Vladimir Putin.
“We need to show some humble respect for diversity. Diversity is the core
feature of our European history, and it is our strength. … We need to
understand diversity, understand complexity. … For this reason I am not
afraid to say that political Islam should be part of the picture.”
When President Obama and Secretary Kerry say “Europe” backs the Iran accord,
remember that it is a very small, specially selected, and very left-wing
part of Europe.
When President Obama and Secretary Kerry say the United States will be able
to “snap back” sanctions against Iran, there is good reason not to believe
