THE NUKE DEAL - updated

This is the latest information on the US-Iranian nuke talks. This post might be updated by 5 p.m. tonite (central time), so check back by then to see if I've added any new information.

It is also being reported that a 'key point' for Iran that is NOT negotiable is Israel's destruction (H/T Steve Coerper).

Iran militia chief: Destroying Israel is ‘nonnegotiable’

Other sources besides RT look mixed with some saying that a deal has been reached, others saying not so fast. Drudge is reporting that the deadline has been missed, but that Russia is claiming 'key aspects' were agreed upon.

Speaking of France, on a separate issue, Koenig is noting the following:

France preparing draft for UN resolution on Palestine; would designate Jerusalem as a shared capital

Oh, dear!

FLASHBACK to the Old Testament prophet Zechariah:

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:3

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:9

As the nuclear talks have been going on, there have been two other 'nuclear stories' that have come into the news in the past two days.

A Russian analyst has suggested hitting either Yellowstone or the San Andreas with a nuclear attack in order to destroy the United States . . .

and the news out of Fukushima, the crippled nuclear reactor in Japan, has gotten worse.

AP: Melted fuel may have “dropped even beyond” the bottom of Fukushima plant — ‘China Syndrome’ predicted by US gov’t analysis — IAEA Expert: Pools of corium beneath reactors are up to 2 stories high

Gov’t Report: Plutonium at 1,000,000 Bq/m3 was detected in ocean off Fukushima — “Contaminated waters will be transported rapidly to east” across Pacific — This is “the most important direct liquid release of artificial radioactivity into sea ever known” — Scientists: “Remember, its not just cesium that’s released”


Note this screen capture at Drudge this afternoon of the Iran talks and California's water woes worsen as top headlines:

Here is a video of Benjamin Netanyahu's brief comments on Iran's stance that Israel must be destroyed.

And here are three cartoons about Iran's nuclear talks:

Interesting that this next cartoon links the talks with what's going on with gays' rights in Indiana.
