Iran Sanctions Are a Good Decision
The U.S. vs Iran


Claim No.1


Iran Is Like North Korea


Hideaki Kase

Foreign Affairs Analyst
Born in Tokyo in 1936, Kase studied at Keio University, Yale University and Colombia University in the City of New York. He was the first editor-in-chief of the Japanese edition of Encyclopædia Britannica. From 1977 he served as the special advisor to Japanese Prime Ministers Yasuo Fukuda and Yasuhiro Nakasone. He has numerous publications in Japanese.

I think Iran is the cause behind the instability in the Middle East. Just like North Korea, Iran will never stop nuclear developments. The only difference between Iran and North Korea is that Iran is in a geographically convenient place to strike.

Iran has been supporting Hezbollah, Lebanon’s terrorist organization, and has been refusing to acknowledge Israel, saying they will destroy it. The current Iranian government operates the terrifying Revolutionary Guards, similar to Hitler’s SS. Human rights are oppressed, and I think the government is atrocious.


Claim No.2


Sanctions on Iran Are a good idea

In 2015, the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council, joined by Germany, signed a Nuclear Deal with Iran, but it was a pathetic agreement. It didn’t even include a ban on missile developments. So the Trump administration withdrew from it, and has started to impose sanctions on Iran.

I agree with this move. Trump is trying to withdraw U.S. troops from the Middle East and entrust Israel and Saudi Arabia with the law and order of the region. He’s putting pressure on Iran because he doesn’t want trouble with Iranian-backed forces in Saudi Arabia and Syria.

Israel has nuclear weapons, but they use them for deterrence purposes, so they’ll never attack Iran. Israel is the greatest military power in the Middle East and they are vital in stabilizing the region.

The U.S. wants the Iranian government system to change, but I’m against that. If the current government falls there is a high likelihood that it would be taken over by the Revolutionary Guards, and that would be even worse.


Claim No.3


The problem With monotheism Is That They Think Others Are Always Wrong

Memories of the Holocaust are still fresh in the minds of the Jewish people living in Israel. And it was essentially Christianity that triggered the Holocaust. In the New Testament, Jesus says that Jews are children of Satan, (“For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does.”, Gospel of John 8:44) and Hitler decided to act on that.

The monotheistic attitude that, “only my religion is right, and all others are wrong” is the root of all evil. Christendom think of Islam as the devil’s religion. On the other hand, I agree with Happy Science: that the future of humanity rests of the friendly relationship between the many Gods.
