A comment on the historic Iran-US nuclear deal – by Ali Abbas Taj

20150227_zarif_iran_kerry2015

The Iran nuclear deal is yet another proof that I, Ali Abbas Taj, Editor-in-Chief of the LUBP blog, am a double agent working for the CIA and the Iranian Baseej, and that I am an Evangelist as well as an Ayatullah. Given that myself and my blog, LUBP, have been alleged of being several things from John Kerry’s front to Professor Vali Nasr’s activism, being a CIA-Baseej-Evangelist-Ayatullah is a good consolation prize.

With John Kerry and Javad Zarif at two different venues.

Notwithstanding the comical and farcical rubbish that is thrown at the LUBP, Pakistan’s oldest and most popular liberal blog, I urge all fellow activists, bloggers and supporters to work for true peace, and not to cow down to pressure from powerful commercial liberal mafia and vested interests of the Saudi-Takfiri-ISIS-ASWJ complex.

We are now standing on the threshold of a new world order and nothing pleases me more than the fact that my adopted country, the United States, has seized the bold initiative of a landmark peace deal with Iran. Our team at LUBP has been advocating just this deal since as early as 2012. https://lubpak.net/archives/tag/iran-us-peace-dialogue

This is the deal that has the greatest potential of marginalising those extremists and warmongers who want perpetual conflict instead of peace in West Asia, Middle East and the rest of the world. The Peace deal with Iran is a great first step.

Clearly, we have many opponents of this deal even in the United States. I want to assure my fellow Republicans and some Democrats that we are all Americans first and the best way to solve our many issues with Iran is via dialogue and not more conflict.

For too long, we are catering to external lobbies who want us to expend our resources in fighting their petty sectarian battles. These lobbies want ISIS, Al Qaeda and ASWJ to prevail all over the Middle East and bring death and destruction to the entire world.

We must not allow that to happen. LUBP has often been attacked by ISIS, Al Qaeda and ASWJ apologists and careerist liberals (paid for by the Military Industrial Complex NGOs and the Saudi-Takfiri-ASWJ-ISIS lobby) who are clearly not pleased with this landmark deal.

I also would like to request the Shia clergy to continue on the path of engagement. This is a historic moment which has the potential of the United States and Iran addressing the most pressing issues facing the region.

The most pressing issue is the continued growth of ISIS, Al Qaeda, ASWJ-LeJ and the genocidal violence that these Salafi-Deobandi groups are inflicting on Christians, Sunnis, Sufis, Shias, Yazidis, Kurds and Assyrians.

Now we must tell our so-called friends – especially Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to stop imposing their Caliphate ambitions in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Bahrain and elsewhere.

The world requires peaceful solutions and today I am a proud Pakistani-American Shia Muslim that my adopted country has taken this bold step for peace.

    ‪#‎IranDeal‬. Done.

    Quick thoughts: The world has not ended. The four bearded horsemen of the Apocalypse have yet to rise from Tehran and force koobideh down our throats. Fesinjoon and blood-red pomegranate juice do not rain from the skies (unfortunately). Netanyahu, Saudi Arabia and 47 Republican Senators, however, will have explosive diarreah and migraines for a week. Someone please go to Costco and buy Mylanta in bulk for them.

    Mubarak to Iranians and Obama – you better believe the iftar parties in Iran will be amazing tonight. I hope people can do a snapchat story capturing the celebrations. Also, impressive feather in Obama’s cap – Iran Deal, Cuba, Obamacare, Marriage Equality and the downfall of the Confederate flag. Consider his legacy cemented.

    Finally, with the #IranDeal, there’s a vacancy – who replaces them as Hollywood’s most reliable Middle Eastern villain?
