Secretary of State John Kerry speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei very disturbing, Hello! Duh!, Death to America and Death to Israel, You can’t make a deal with the devil
“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001
“[During negotiations,] the importance of the need to develop Russia and Iran’s cooperation in the joint struggle against meddling in the affairs of the region by external forces that are not part of it was framed,”…Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan
“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells
Where is the surprise?
The Iranians, especially hardliners like Khamenei, have been consistent with their intent to destroy Israel and defy the US.
You can’t make a deal with the devil.

“Kerry says Iran vow to defy U.S. is ‘very disturbing'”
“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing”.
“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.
“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling,” he added.
Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were “180 degrees” opposed to Iran’s, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.
“Even after this deal our policy toward the arrogant U.S. will not change,” Khamenei said.”
