Posted on 07/20/2012 8:12:19 PM PDT by Nachum
In the aftermath of the bombing of a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, the Obama administration included an Iranian-American anti-Israel group in a White House meeting and characterized the terror attack as a tit-for-tat reprisal by Iran.
Wednesday, officials from the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) attended a White House roundtable event for Iranian-American community leaders that featured Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obamas closest advisers.
NIAC bills itself as an Iranian-American community organization, but its work focuses on softening U.S. policy toward Iran. It advocates removing sanctions on Iran and attempted to scuttle Dennis Rosss promotion to an Iran policy role in the White House. A recent membership survey conducted by NIAC received only 500 responses.
The day before the White House meeting, NIACs president, Trita Parsi, who does not hold American citizenship, published an article in the Daily Beast alleging that Israeli leaders viewed the murder of their civilians in the Bulgaria bombing with satisfaction. US officials have privately expressed concern that one of the purposes of Israeli attacks in Iran has been to generate an Iranian response that could serve as a casus belli for Israel, Parsi wrote. That way, Israel could target Irans nuclear facilities without paying the heavy political cost of starting a preventive war.
While Parsi speculated that the murder of tourists marked the achievement of an Israeli policy goal, a senior American official quoted in the New York Times said the attack was tit for tatretaliation for Israels alleged assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists.

I knew the administration couldn't hide their Israeli-hate for long. Even with an election coming....
Well, of course scientists making nukes for Achmedinanutjob are exactly the same as Israeli tourists.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The bomber had a fake Michigan driver’s license with a Louisiana address.
He was an Obama campaign worker.
The scary time will be when Israelis is finally convinced that they are truly on their own. Then they will have nothing to lose and the rest of the world, I’m afraid, will discover that Never Again is a lot more than a slogan.
a bus load of Jewish teenagers is “tit for tat?
I didnt realize that Israeli inteligence targeted civilaans especially children
Does this mean obama’s children (or Jarrett’s children) would be tit for tat if al Qaeda got revenge for their terrorists killed in predator attacks that are being personally ordered by obama ?
It’s all morally relative, dear Watson. :)
You’d pretty much have to hate Israel and the Jewish people to make such an evil, ignorant comment.
AMEN! The hate is palpable.
Chickens coming home to roost, and all that rot.
“a bus load of Jewish teenagers is tit for tat?

The children of the terrorists are sometimes killed, too.
If this is the way Obama sees things, then your conclusion is very logical to me.
You got to be kidding me...
pulling the heat off his boss over the weekend after the “you didnt build that” statement..we wont know how much this turd has give away til its over.
Those who would exterminate Israel may in the end, be enlightened by “the light of a thousand suns.”. ..
Full title: Tit for Tat - Obama Admin official describes Bulgarian attack as tit for tat reprisal
Of course. It’s the same as the reason Obama’s buddy Ayers bombed and murdered. The victims had it coming.
Time for another PAC commercial against Obama.... Anti-Isreali, which by extension will definitely hurt the NASDAQ/S&P given the number of Fortune 500 companies in the Promised Land....
“Isreali leaders view the murders with satisfaction” .... What a monster.
A blood feud is OK with 0bama?
Israel is above reproach with regards to this matter, disgusting,I am convinced this administration truly hates Israel, they see Her enemies as right, for them to even associate tourists as justified targets for reprisal is, well, disgusting, and very telling, God look after Israel, the United States is in for a bumpy ride, for our leaders have turned their collective backs on Her and God’s wrath is sure to follow!
What’s Valerie Jarrett’s FR nick’?
......Whats Valerie Jarretts FR nick?.....
What put obama in the WhiteHouse and what will keep him there are Whites. White self hating Liberals and Leftists. white parasites, Whites who preferslavery to freedom. Whites who prefer cradle to grave ass wiping by the Government over freedom and personal responsibility.As 2008 demonstrated they are now more parasites that producers.
why were the children on that bus “children of terrorists”?
Did their parents work for Israeli military intelligence countering Iran’s WMD program?
Or because they were Israeli? (ergo, all Israelis are terrorist)
Or simply because they were Jews? (ergo, all Jews are terrorists)
Like the Argentine Jews killed by Iran 20 years ago in their community center? Like the French children killed at their Jewish school? Like the Russian children killed at Breslan?
Your conclusion about “the children of terrorists” beiong an entire political group, ideology, nation or religion is also logical to al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Andre Brevik and history’s apologists for genocide.
Ths is like the phrase “cycle of violence,” which anti-Israelis (or just plain anti-semties) use to talk about the terrorism and wars Israel has faced for 60+ years.
I think you have misunderstood what I was meaning.
Do I think what happened to Israelis on that bus is OK, tit for tat, whatever? Hell no and I don’t care if every single Israeli was an adult and all were over 100 years old and NO children were killed—it is wrong and I hope Israel makes Iran pay.
We know damn well that Obama wouldn’t casually say tit for tat if Muslim terrorists had blown up a bus his daughter and her school friends may have taken while visiting Mexico.
Obama uses drones that take out terrorists, whole families and then some. Obama either believes what he says and it is all fair or he is saying it is only tit for tat if it is Israelis.
This man must be voted out. I hope that I am more clear in this post.
I am NOT for the killing of Israelis at all period end of story, none, ZERO, zilch. I in NO way have ANYTHING in common with al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Andre Brevik or OBAMA. I am not an apologists for genocide and I take offense to that comment.
Yet the vast amjority of Jewish voters will donate/vote/mobilize the GOTV for Obama again. They seem to like/want this. Real head scratcher.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Even less. According to Wikipedia, Blacks make up 12.6% of the population; 1.7% of the USA is Jewish.
If this was a reprisal for killing Iranian nuclear scientists, did they believe the teenagers on the bus had assassinated a nuclear scientist, were about to assassinate a nuclear scientist, or were nuclear scientists themselves? Or was it because they were Joooooos! or something? Tit4tat has switched weapons, from a scoped sniper’s rifle to a shotgun.
The Hamas-supporting CAIR and the Iranian oriented NIAC share the same PR firm : Fenton Communications, the folks who created the Alar scare against apple farmers on behalf of a lobby, and the dairy hormone scare on behalf of ben and Jerrys’.
