Talk about lowering the bar.

On what appears to be the eve of Washington entering into a new nuclear deal with Iran, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid urged organizational leaders of the American Jewish community on Monday to lobby the US administration not against entering into what according to all reports seems to be a shorter and weaker deal, but rather against de-classifying Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.

The IRGC is the “roof organization of Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, the Houthis in Yemen and a terrorist organization per se. We are talking to them [the US administration] about this and I think everybody in their right mind should talk to the administration about them and tell them this is just wrong – don’t do this,” he told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations meeting in Jerusalem.

In other words, as the Biden administration is about to sign on to something that Israel believes is a clear and present danger, the Israeli government has gone from screaming bloody murder against it from every rooftop and platform – à la former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu – to urging the US not to remove sanctions from the Iranian organization spreading bedlam throughout the Middle East.
