With a shocking announcement to the world, Iran threatened to increase its uranium enrichment to weapons-grade levels, and it’s already violated the terms of its own nuclear deal.

Today on Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed major news coming out of Iran, as its President Hassan Rouhani warned Europe that it will increase its enrichment of weapons-grade uranium if doesn’t receive a new deal by Sunday.

Rouhani reportedly stated:

"Our enrichment rate is not going to be 3.67% anymore. It’s going to be as much as we want it to be.” . . .

Reports have come out this week claiming that Iran has already exceeded the uranium limits it agreed to in the 2015 nuclear deal. As our Director of Government Affairs Thann Bennett pointed out, the pace at which they’re stockpiling uranium proves they were never adhering to the deal, nor did they ever intend to.

Rouhani also reportedly made what can only be interpreted as a threat to create weapons-grade plutonium:

“From (July 7) onward with the Arak reactor, if you don’t operate (according to) the programme and time frame of all the commitments you’ve given us, we will return the Arak reactor to its previous condition,” said Rouhani.

“Meaning, the condition that you say is dangerous and can produce plutonium,” he said, referring to a key ingredient in a nuclear weapon.

Iran is changing the rules as it sees fit and it’s timeline as to when it could create nuclear weapons, from years, to a few months. This could lead to a military altercation.

Having worked with the President, serving as a junior member of his legal team, I can say I do not believe he wants a war with Iran, despite what some Democrats have cavalierly stated. But Iran is already the leading sponsor of terrorism in the world. It simply cannot have a nuclear weapons.

I asked the audience; how do you think the U.S. should respond to this clear threat?
