U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu
Reuters ^ | Sept 11, 2012 | Jeffrey Heller

(Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said the United States had forfeited its moral right to stop Israel taking action against Iran's nuclear program because it had refused to be firm with Tehran itself.

In comments which appeared to bring the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran closer, Netanyahu took the Obama administration to task after Washington rebuffed his own call to set a red line for Tehran's nuclear drive.

"The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?'" said Netanyahu, speaking in English.

Mr. Netanyahu, America has forfeited all of her rights.

We elected a Muslim as our leader.

His party denied God.

We are forsaken.

God Speed, sir.

Yesterday was a terrible day. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran.

Yet with all this at stake, many here refuse to vote for Romney and are willing to take Obama for another 4 years as a result.

Makes you kind of sick when you think about it...

Netanyahu needs to fish or cut bait.
Time is not on the side of Israel.
Neither is Obama.
Hopefully a Jewish winter will make them wish they
never had an Arab spring.

>>Romney makes me sick when I think about him.

Sometimes, and with politicians more often than not, there are only bad options, but some worse than others.

Romney makes me sick when I think about him.If Obama wins, it will be the fault of the Republican establishment for forcing Romney on us, not the fault of those of us who are not enthusiastic about Romney.

“The Anointed One” makes me even sicker. I wish Mitt would show some spine..The problem with Mitt seems to be that he appears to be too wishy-washy instead calling a spade a spade

Obama makes me even sicker......Mitt appears to be the lesser of the two evils and at least he has some business acumen while the other one could not even run a popcorn stand even if his life dependet on it.

I hope you can take some satisfaction from that belief if Obama wins. Personally I believe in making the best of what there is to work with. Whining about how we got where we are is not going to change who’s going to be president the next 4 years.

Netanyahu has come to power for a time such as this.

He is exactly on point in the above. He is Mordecai.
