Agreement on Iran’s Nuclear Programme Good For Peace

The failure by Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to stop the agreement between the 5 +1 countries and Iran is a very welcome development, which breaks the daily increase in violence in the Middle East.

In practical terms it will not change a lot. Iran’s nuclear programme is for civil nuclear power and medical applications, not for bomb making. This has been verified many times by international nuclear bodies and even the CIA. The significance of this agreement is that it makes it much more difficult for Israel to attack Iran with the excuse of eliminating a nuclear bomb programme. It will also make it far more difficult for Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to demonise Iran in their campaign to use Sunni Muslims to fight Shia Muslims. The agreement provides the chance to stop the fratricidal slaughter in the Middle East and North Africa, particularly in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.

Much credit for the breakthrough must go to Russian and Iranian diplomacy, but the biggest change has been the realisation by people in the US and Europe that their soldiers and finances are being used by Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to make war on Iran to defend their own fascist aims.

In Scotland the aim must be to have a non-separatist majority who are willing to work together to prevent the SNP and allies having a disruptive second referendum.
No to the break up of Britain! Deal with this before we can rebuild.

#votelabour today to build a better, fairer future after the pandemic.

Difficult times for the unity of Britain. Stopping an overall majority for separatists depends on tactical voting by unionists & their large turnout; a lack of cohesion among the pro independence parties; & winning over undecided voters.
Vote for Unity.

Support for Scottish independence has dropped from a high point at the start of the year, and polls are showing a 50/50 split on the question. In this crucial election many workers intend to vote tactically to maintain the union & thwart the separatists.
