The Obama administration appears to be conducting a campaign of leaks to the media to stop Israel from attacking Tehran's nuclear program. It seems Obama fears an Israeli military strike more than he fears Iran achieving nuclear-weapons capability.
The Obama administration appears to be conducting an organized campaign of public pressure to stop Israel from attacking Irans well-developed nuclear-weapons program. So intense is this effort, and so determined is President Obama to succeed, that administration officials are now leaking highly sensitive information about Israels intentions and capabilities into the news media.
The presidents unwillingness to take preemptive military action against Tehrans nuclear efforts has long been evident, notwithstanding his ritual incantation that all options are on the table. Equally evident is his fixation to ensure that Israel does not act unilaterally against Iran, a principal reason why Washingtons relations with Jerusalem are at their lowest ebb since Israels 1948 founding.
Indeed, the only conclusion to be drawn from Mr. Obamas actions and rhetoric is that he fears an Israeli military strike more than he fears Iran achieving nuclear-weapons capability.

Judging from the comments over there, the CSM is read exclusively by far-left anti-Semitic loons who blame all the world’s troubles on the Joooooooooos . . . .

With Bamster in the WH and Hillary(!) running things at DoS, Israel has no friends in this administration. Worse, the whole of DoS is in the hands of pro-Arab sympathizers. PM Netanyahu and his cabinet need to steam independently and take down Iran — sooner, rather than later.
The only thing for our government to do, then, is to deliberately feed plausible misinformation to the United States. Don’t be surprised if the Azerbaijan leak was exactly that.

(End the occupation. Annex today.)
Think this point not made often enough by REpubs! It is NOT Israel, threatening by dictum/agenda to send the 'Palestinians' into the sea; nor wipe their land 'off the map'; nor address them with epithets by any and all, most heinous of names; nor educate their young to 'hate' their neighbor - and to 'want them dead'.
The threat clearly lies beyond Israel.
