UPDATE 10:13 PM EST: President Obama will address the nation shortly about the deal with Iran.

UPDATE: 10:03 EST: AP source: Nuclear deal does not include recognition of Iran’s right to enrich uranium.

UPDATE 9;48 PM EST:  Early reports state that Iran received  a break of $4 billion in sanctions relief. Iran will get access to $4.2 billion in foreign exchange as part of an agreement under which it will curb its nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief, a Western diplomat said on Sunday.

UPDATE: 9:30 PM ESTThe French and Iranian foreign ministers said early Sunday that a deal between six world powers and Iran has been struck that calls on Tehran to limit its nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said, “Yes, we have a deal,” as he walked past reporters crowding the hotel lobby where marathon negotiations had taken place over the past five days.

Asked if there was a deal, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said “Yes” and gave a thumbs up sign.

The goal had been to hammer out an agreement to freeze Iran’s nuclear program for six months, while offering the Iranians limited relief from crippling economic sanctions. If the interim deal holds, the parties will negotiate final-stage agreements to ensure Iran does not build nuclear weapons.

The deal came after the personal intervention by Secretary of State John Kerry and other foreign ministers whose presence had raised hopes for a breakthrough.

Diplomats refused to spell out details of the talks, which dragged on past midnight and into early Sunday.

  1. your absolutely right YWN, this is shocking news.

    get ready for tzaros in klal yisroel to go from tragic to horrific as we watch tragedies happening-daily R”L-& WE still don’t wake up & start doing teshuva. How long can Hashem watch us & not do something to wake us up? i.e. how long can YOU watch your child not listen to his parents before he’s gone too far & needs to be punished?

    Klal yisroel blew it long ago, when we see tzaros happening but we don’t get together as a nation to do teshuva & beg Hashem forgiveness?

    May we all wakeup ASAP & do teshuva

    THANK YOU YWN for always keeping me posted with the latest updates in news. I’m waiting to hear good news soon

  2. CNN News 2218 EST:

    The deal with Iran halts progress on its nuclear program, provides for intrusive inspections and neutralizes Iran’s stockpile of 20% enriched uranium, a senior official in U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration said.

  3. Eis tzoroh hee leyakov. R”l.
    He’s a terrible shaliach destroying from within. Hear the call from heaven and pray to our father in heaven to have pity on klal Yisroel. He shtams from Yismoeol and is working with the Sonai hand in hand.

    May we return to Tzion through rachmim.

  4. to Metzapim & everyone else
    Yes hes a crazy shliach from Hashem & an obamanation but first you need to see the other side of the story i.e. Hashems side. below are 2 messages STRAIGHT from Hashem of why Obama is president.

    1)President Barack (Husaine) Obama is what we need for moshiach to come. You see before Moshiach comes the whole entire world is going to be against Israel & the jews. Now, you can’t just have President Bush & the United States go against Israel, you need a Muslim i.e. Bnei Yishmael to rule America & THEN go against Israel. The way Judaism works is that if your mother is jewish then you are jewish. Muslims are just the opposite, if your father is Muslim then you are a Muslim & that is what Barack Obama is. (a Muslim from his fathers side) Now with America under Muslim/Bnei Yishmael rulership Moshiach can come.

    2)President Barack (Husaine) Obama is the 44th President of the USA. The numerical value of his last name is 44. The 44th word in the Torah is Choshech (Dark). It says the word Eved (servant) 44 times in the torah & the numerical value of Dam (Bloodshed) is also 44. Now we can & should get ready for the Bloodshed of Milchemes Gog U’Magog before Mashiach comes. Hold yourselves in as he negotiates with terrorists, as the relationship between Israel & America is slowly separating (in president Obama’s inauguration speech he welcomed in every terrorist country from Iraq to Iran etc… & told them if you join America & expand the land then we will assist you in all our programs AKA Social Security, Medicaid, HUD Foodstamps etc…)

    Now you can ask yourself this question & then you will understand what a message STRAIGHT FROM HASHEM means. Do you think you can find this wake-up message-above- in a sefer? do you think you can read it in a newspaper from someone who wrote this after he became president occurred? do you think I’m a navi (prophet) that this message can be coming from me? im actually a businessman. the only answer is that it came straight down from Hashem.

    May we all do teshuva ASAP, so we won’t need any more tragic wake-up calls.

  5. not sure if anyone knows but Iran is Gog. (milchemes gog u’magog…) do your research & if anyone wants, you are invited to see the yad Hashem in everything going on today (from news to this amazing world we live in that hASHEM CREATED etc…)

    While there is every reason to be skeptical and monitor this deal carefully, your meshugana rant about “Husain” and the gematria for “44” and dragging moishiach into this shows a level of hysteria that makes no sense. Would EY be better off if Iran proceeds with its enrichment program and develops a bomb? There is no viable stand-alone military solution for EY to address the Iran nuclear progam. Tonight’s announcement should be cause for guarded optimism and not for your hateful comments about our President.
