President Obama is marking the Iranian Spring holiday of Nowruz, using the occasion to promote a peaceful nuclear deal with their leaders, calling it the “the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries.”

Rather than preventing Iran’s quest for deployable nuclear arms, Obama has facilitated it.

And now he is further facilitating Iran’s ascension to regional hegemony and nuclear power by ignoring Iran’s backing of the Assad regime, Hezbollah, and the growing number of Iranian generals and military experts who are operating in the Golan Heights along the border with Israel. That is another choice in favors our allies’ enemy…
