Iran last week marked Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel by shooting off two missiles, each kindly inscribed with the message, “Israel must be wiped off the Earth,” in Hebrew.

The best part? Tehran says, that under its nuclear “understanding” with President Obama, it’s no longer banned from testing of missiles capable of carrying nukes — like those shot off to “honor” Biden.

Yet the tests still violate UN resolutions — and there’s a strong bipartisan push in Congress to impose new sanctions on Iran over the launches.

Word also broke last week that the nuke deal actually means the public learns less on Iran’s nuke program from the International Atomic Energy Agency. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano says the agency can’t even publicly report any potential violations by Iran.

The agency’s latest report “provides insufficient details on important verification and monitoring issues,” notes the IAEA’s recent No. 2. If Iran, for example, isn’t lowering its stockpile of enriched uranium, the public has no way to find out.

Don’t expect Team Obama to disclose any violations, either: Keeping the deal alive is vital to the president’s legacy.

Which is also why Obama will likely veto any sanctions over Iran’s missile launches: He’s committed to keep on giving.
