IS terror makes nuclear deal with Iran possible

After 13 years of wrangling an agreement has finally been reached in the nuclear dispute with Iran. Diplomats announced the deal between the UN veto powers, Berlin and Tehran on Tuesday morning in Vienna. This is only possible now because the West needs the Shiite country as a counterbalance to the growing strength of the IS Sunni terrorists, the conservative daily Rzeczpospolita explains: "So it all looks wonderful now. But one asks why an agreement has only become possible at present, and why Iran was one of the main enemies of the West - and the US in particular - for so long. The answer is simple: the situation in the other countries of the region has deteriorated considerably. Half of the Middle East is fighting against the Sunni Islamists. However Shiite Iran has already gone through its Islamic revolution. Compared with its neighbours it now seems like an oasis of reason and peace."
