That pretty much says it all.
Obama said that "Iran's supreme leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, President Rouhani has indicated that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons."
~The Weekly Standard
Sorry but I can almost laugh at the utter absurdity of what Rouhani says (except it's too serious to laugh about). There's a reason why we haven't communicated with Iran since 1979. But most basic of all there's a reason for distrust. The reason is this: Islam and Islam's god are deceivers, according to the quran. Therefore any true Muslim can't even be trusted, much less their "supreme leader". Their god and their religion is full of lies and deceit.
Iran is banking on gullible Americans and Westerners like Barrack Hussein Obama to believe their word and end up doing their dirty work for them. We know that Iran was building nuclear capabilities for war while claiming it was for "peaceful" reasons, back during Clinton's administration and here we go again. Same lies, but this time with a willing believers named Barrack Hussein Obama. Ask Israel if Rouhani's claim is believable. Trust me, they aren't that stupid. They know better.
NPR reported in 2012:
In the two rounds of international talks so far this year — Iran on one side, the U.S., Europe, Russia and China on the other — Iranian officials have argued that the fatwa should persuade the world that Iran has no intention of acquiring nuclear weapons.
But this fatwa — or any fatwa — is not inscribed in stone, says Mehdi Khalaji of the Washington Institute on Near East Policy.
"Fatwa is changeable by nature and the Shia theology gives this freedom to be flexible and go for the most updated interpretation and circumstances," Khalaji says.
Iran's supreme leader understands, says Sahimi, that circumstances in the world are always changing and thus fatwas must face scrutiny.
"Once it is issued, it doesn't imply that it can never be changed," he says. "The conditions can change and therefore a new fatwa can be issued that would basically nullify the previous one regarding the same issue."
There are other concepts in Shiite Islam — lying to protect the life of Muslims or expediency to guard the interests of the state — that Iranian leaders could cite to reverse a fatwa.
I do find it interesting that the heavy role of religion that plays in Islam isn't understood by most people. It again, makes my point: Islam is not just a religion. It is a political religion. Relying on a religious proclamation (fatwa) in foreign policy, Obama seems to be giving terrorist countries more religious ground, not to mention more of an ear, than he does American Republicans. He is making political and nuclear negotiations with people based on other religious reason, who can change their minds at the flip of a switch.
