Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and the nuclear deal are concerns for many:

Iran’s election unsettles Biden’s hope for a nuclear deal

June 22, 2021

Biden administration officials are insisting that the election of a hard-liner as Iran’s president won’t affect prospects for reviving the faltering 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran. But there are already signs that their goal of locking in a deal just got tougher.

Optimism that a deal was imminent faded as the latest talks ended Sunday without tangible indications of significant progress. And on Monday, in his first public comments since the vote, incoming Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi rejected a key Biden goal of expanding on the nuclear deal if negotiators are able to salvage the old one.

At the same time, Raisi is likely to raise Iran’s demands for sanctions relief in return for Iranian compliance with the deal, as he himself is already subject to U.S. human rights penalties. …

Despite Raisi’s impending presidency, Biden administration officials insist prospects for reaching an agreement are unaltered. https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-joe-biden-middle-east-iran-government-and-politics-8d8f70767a80decd8a12eb0c54241ccf

Iran’s President-elect: Tehran’s Ballistic Missile Program ‘Nonnegotiable’

June 22, 2021

Iran’s new hard-line President-elect, Ebrahim Raisi, said Monday he would not negotiate over limiting Tehran’s ballistic missile program or its support for regional militia proxy forces.

In addition, Raisi told reporters in Tehran that he would not meet with U.S. President Joe Biden as the United States attempts to rejoin the 2015 international pact to restrain Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

Later, the White House dismissed any concern about not having a Raisi-Biden meeting. …

Raisi, a protégé of Khamenei, took a defiant stance against Washington, saying, “The U.S. is obliged to lift all oppressive sanctions against Iran.”

As the U.S. and five other international powers negotiate new terms of the nuclear pact with Tehran, Raisi said any discussions about its ballistic missile program and its support of regional militias were “nonnegotiable.”…

Raisi called sanctions relief “central to our foreign policy” and demanded that the U.S. “return and implement your commitments” in the deal. https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/irans-president-elect-tehrans-ballistic-missile-program-nonnegotiable

While the Biden-Harris Administration is publicly optimistic about a nuclear deal with Iran, not all in the USA are as NewsMax reports in the following:

John Bolton to Newsmax: Iran Nuke Deal Based on ‘a Fantasy’

The Biden administration is seeking to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – Obama’s Iran nuclear deal – but the connected administrations have “no idea how flawed the deal is,” according to former National Security Adviser John Bolton on Newsmax.

“Although they don’t like to say it publicly, it rests on the assumption that if they could just calm the Ayatollahs down and convince them that they don’t need to worry about the United States and Israel, they can solve the nuclear program, Iran will behave like a normal nation, and sweetness and light will break out in the Middle East.

“It really is a fantasy, and it’s a dangerous fantasy.”

President Joe Biden’s pushing to resume JCPOA talks – after former President Donald Trump decertified it – is an “extraordinarily dangerous” way to stem nuclear proliferation, Bolton added to host John Bachman.

“They think it was working, and they’re just completely wrong on that,” Bolton said. “They have no idea how flawed the deal is, and they see it as something that can be a model really for their nonproliferation efforts around the world, and it’s extraordinarily dangerous.

“Israel sees it. The gulf Arab states see it. They do not.” https://www.newsmax.com/newsmax-tv/john-bolton-secretary-of-state-jcpoa-nuclear/2021/06/21/id/1025862/

Iran is aware that the Biden-Harris Administration wants a deal.

However, the Biden-Harris Administration is likely a lot more concerned about Iran’s new president and delays in getting a possible deal are likely.

Consider the following as well:

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told NBC News that the administration hopes to negotiate a “longer and stronger” deal, but only after Iran returns to compliance.

At the same time, Tehran is telling the White House that it must drop the Trump-era sanctions first. 02/01/21 https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/iran-launches-new-satellite-carrying-rocket-biden-plan-restore-nuclear-deal-falters

Iran is trying to show the USA that it needs to drop sanctions now in order to get Iran to talk about halting (or slowing down) its nuclear program, yet the USA has said that is unacceptable.

So  while the Biden-Harris Administration believes it has pressure to act, its position and Iran’s is still at odds.

Now, notice something from my book Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction related to Iran:

Despite its posturing and relative military strength, Iran will be somehow effectively neutralized (cf. Ezekiel 32:24). This could perhaps be from an attack involving Israel and/or internal civil unrest — this could also include electromagnetic (EMP) or similar weapons used against Iran (Jeremiah 49:34-39).

It is of prophetic interest to note that the small nation of Israel is prophesied to one day be attacked by some that seem to have connection to Iran and its ally Syria (Isaiah 22:1-14). …

Iran may decide to strike out against Israel, and likely Jerusalem (cf. Isaiah 22:7-8) if it determines that it should. If it is frustrated with the Biden-Harris Administration policies or delays, that may very well be a factor in it taking prophesied military action.

Iran has weapons that can cause damage. Furthermore, the U.S.A. itself, as well as the State of Israel, are vulnerable to EMP type attacks and even items such as biological weapons, chemical weapons, terrorism, nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, etc. because of a conflict involving Iran, Syria, and/or others.

But should this attack occur, this would NOT be the final destruction of the U.S.A. Prophetically, Iran would not end up faring well (cf. Ezekiel 32:24-25). (Thiel B. Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction. Nazarene Books, January 2021)

So, with Iran getting a new president who has publicly taken a ‘hard line,’ it looks like there will be delays.

Enough delays may lead Iran to conclude that a regional war is the best way to deal with domestic and international pressures.

Such a war is consistent with prophesies such as are in Isaiah 22–and may be a factor leading to the ‘peace deal’ of Daniel 9:27.

We may be in the early stages of the ride of the second horseman of the Apocalypse–that is the horseman that takes peace from the earth.

Talks and/or lack thereof may be interpreted by Iran or Israel as reasons to attack militarily against one another.

A regional war will come to the Middle East and it could be relatively soon.

UPDATE: At 9:44 pm on June 22, 2021, Voice of America reported the following:

The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday seized nearly three dozen Iran-linked news websites, which it accused of spreading disinformation.

“Today, pursuant to court orders, the United States seized 33 websites used by the Iranian Islamic Radio and Television Union (IRTVU) and three websites operated by Kata’ib Hizballah (KH), in violation of U.S. sanctions,” a DOJ statement said.

Iranian media confirmed that several state-linked news websites appeared “seized” by the U.S. government without any clear reason or explanation.

Among the sites abruptly taken offline were state television’s English-language Press TV, its Arabic channel Al-Alam, and Yemeni Houthi rebels’ Al-Masirah satellite news channel.

The message on the websites said the seizures had been “in accordance with a seizure warrant,” and it appeared with the seals of the FBI and the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security.

Al-Masirah released a statement acknowledging its seizure, saying it would continue its mission of “confronting the American and Israeli acts of piracy against our nation, by any means.” https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/us-seizes-iranian-state-news-sites

This will NOT endear the Biden-Harris Administration to the new Iranian presidency. This act may further encourage the Iranians to conclude that they will not get what they want from the Americans. Violent conflict is something Iran must be considering.
