An Iran Revolutionary Guard general said America is and always will be an enemy of Iran. General Amir Ali Hajizadeh reecently called out ineffective U.S. foreign policy during a broadcast on Iran’s Noor TV. This comes as the deadline closes in for Joe Biden to restart negotiations on the failed nuclear deal.
“If the enemy had had the power and ability to stop these things, it would have done so,” stated the Iranian general. “Why is the enemy begging us? Wherever the enemy can do these things rather than beg, it does so.”
Hajizadeh’s comments followed a U.S. bombing in Syria, which resulted in IRGC bomb squad casualties. He also said he hopes one day the tables will turn, so Iran could impose sanctions on the U.S.
Critics are now accusing the Biden administration of wasting diplomatic leverage as they continue to lift sanctions on Iran despite the country continuing to ramp up uranium enrichment efforts.
In early June, the Wall Street Journal reported the U.S. lifted sanctions on various Iranian officials and national Iranian oil companies, seemingly in an effort to both improve the price of oil and regain momentum on stalled nuclear agreement talks in Vienna.
With recent U.S. airstrikes against Iranian backed militias along the Iraqi-Syrian border, the White House is demonstrating it’s hard power action against the Ayatollah regime. Experts are now questioning whether the hard power actions on Iran’s proxies are enough to regain ground-lost to Iran as economic sanctions continue to be lifted.
The Biden administration’s appeasement and lifting of the sanctions ultimately is aimed at getting Iran to stop increasing uranium enrichment levels. On Tuesday, however, Iran informed the United Nations nuclear watchdog that they will be enriching uranium to 20 percent for nuclear reactor energy fuel.
The problem is: nuclear reactor fuel only requires a 3 to 5 percent enrichment, not 20. The only reason Iran would enrich to 20 percent is because they are on their way to achieving the 90 percent enrichment needed for weapons grade uranium.
Even Secretary of State Antony Blinken mentioned early in June that Iran’s nuclear weapon breakout time is only getting closer.
As it sits right now, the Biden administration continues to lift sanctions on Iran though their nuclear program seems to still be moving full steam ahead.

In a powerful speech to the United Nations in 2015, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the Iran Nuclear deal, explaining the incredible danger it poses to Israel and the rest of the world:
This deal doesn’t make peace more likely. By fueling Iran’s aggressions with billions of dollars in sanctions relief, it makes war more likely.
Unleashed and un-muzzled, Iran will go on the prowl, devouring more and more prey. In the wake of the nuclear deal, Iran is spending billions of dollars on weapons and satellites. You think Iran is doing that to advance peace? You think hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief and fat contracts will turn this rapacious tiger into a kitten? If you do, you should think again.
I have long said that the greatest danger facing our world is the coupling of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. And I’m gravely concerned that the nuclear deal with Iran will prove to be the marriage certificate of that unholy union.
Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promise to destroy my country. Murder my people. And the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here has been absolutely nothing! Utter silence! Deafening silence.
Perhaps you can now understand why Israel is not joining you in celebrating this deal. If Iran’s rulers were working to destroy your countries, perhaps you’d be less enthusiastic about the deal. If Iran’s terror proxies were firing thousands of rockets at your cities, perhaps you’d be more measured in your praise. And if this deal were unleashing a nuclear arms race in your neighborhood, perhaps you’d be more reluctant to celebrate.
Netanyahu’s words have only become more relevant today.
Israel praised the former Trump administration for its hard stance on the Islamic Republic of Iran while condemning those who continually refuse to respond to Iran’s blatant violations of the nuclear deal.
With sanctions lifted on Iran, by the Biden administration, they have only advanced their efforts against Israel through attacks, terror proxies, etc. They have been doing this increasingly by way of Syria, using the war-torn country to house weaponry to attack the Jewish State, which has resulted in multiple Israeli strikes.
In Isaiah 17, we are told that in the last days, Damascus, the capital city of Syria, will be completely destroyed. Although we are not told how this will happen or by whom, Syria has become a hotbed of activity in the Middle East that those familiar with Bible Prophecy have been watching very closely.
Damascus’s destruction could also be a catalyst to the Ezekiel 38-39 war in-which Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others come together from the north, with weaponry supplied by Russia, to attack the Jewish state.
