Israel

P-U.S. Obama administration is trying to convince both Israel and Iran that putting Israeli troops in what will be Palestine land in the future, on the border of Jordan, will make security better.

P-This would put limited Israeli defense near the Jordan riiver for five to fifteen years.

P-John Kerry returned there for the second time last week, hoping to see the public making progress.

P-The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes that this would not be enough to guarantee safety.

P-Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas promised to his people that there would be not one Israeli soldier in a future Palestinian state, so he is not on board either.

P-The idea was shot down by both countries, and the public media in Iran and Israel has trashed the ideas on the news.

P-Israeli generals think that this area of land is crucial to be protected so that they are not invaded from the East, especially because of terror groups.

ntk-Asymmetrical warfare? Ans: Warfare between two groups who differ widely in military power or strategy.

P-The Jordan Valley has been under Israeli control since 1967, and it is intensly guarded with listening stations, radar sweeps, thermal and night vision cameras, early-warning stations, and patrols.

E-In an earlier meeting, Abbas said the Israelis want to keep control of the area for forty more years to keep up their date palm groves, fish ponds, and greenhouse farming.

P-Abbas believes that the issue of safety is a cover up for the Israelis so that they can continue making a profit.

P-Israel corroborates their want of security by using the Gaza Strip as an example. After they vacated it in 2005, rockets and shoulder-fired missles are smuggled through it, which does not happen in Jordan Valley, with the Israeli security.

P-Israel is mainly afraid that if they vacate the land, the Hamas will take it over and put the Israelis in danger.

P-The U.S. has offered intelligence technology, but Israel already has some of the best in the world.

P-Use of international troops has been discussed, but was shot down by the Israelis.

P-A combination of Israeli and Palestine soldiers has also been proposed.

P-Iran has bought time to continue to enrich uranium by making false agreements before, and it has again, gaining six months.

P-The more advanced their nuclear program becomes, the harder it is for the West and the U.S. to threaten them and negotiateon their terms.

P-The Geneva agreement asks Iran to stop some of it's nuclear program, allowing uranium to continue to be enriched with 10,000 centrifuges.

P-In return, eight billion dollars in sanctions that have caused inflation, unemployment, and civil unrest in Iran will be lifted.

P-Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency are now allowed to oversee enrichment in Fordow and Natanz, but not other sites.

P-Iran has also agreed to stop it's work in Arak, but will not allow inspection.

P-many of the areas suspected of nuclear research will not be allowed to be inspected.

P-Iran says they are doing this research to help them be self-sufficient, but they have plenty of oil to use for domestic consumption.

P-Iran is most likely developing their program to dominate the Middle East.

P-Israel and Western-allied Gulf countries formed an alliance in opposing this agreement.

P-Negotiations with the world powers and Iran have gone on for over ten years, and, in that time, it has increased it's number of centrifuges by 126%, has greater than ten tons of low-enriched uranium, and more than 1,000 ballistic missiles.

P-Congress should have a plan by the end of the six months to crack down on Iran if they did not comply to the agreement.
