Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu dismissed as completely groundless allegations he is manufacturing a crisis with US President Barack Obama just before the November 6 American election to influence the outcome in favor of Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Netanyahu, in a Rosh Hashana interview with The Jerusalem Post that will appear in full on Sunday, said his call for the United States and the international community to set red lines for Iran was not at all connected with the US political campaign.
It has nothing to do with the American elections, because the Iranian nuclear program doesnt care about the American political calendar, the prime minister said.
If the centrifuges stop miraculously, if they stop preparing enriched uranium to make atomic bombs, then I suppose I wouldnt have to speak out.
But the Iranian nuclear program proceeds unabated and they dont care about the internal American political calendar. For me this is a policy issue, a security issue, and not a political issue, he said.
Netanyahu characterized his post-midnight telephone call Wednesday with Obama as a good conversation.
We spoke about our common goal of stopping Iran from developing its nuclear weapons program, and our desire to closely coordinate our efforts, he related
When asked whether Obama referred to his comments that those who do not place red lines in front of the Iranians cannot place a red light in front of Israel, Netanyahu replied that he was not going to get into details of this discussion.

If I was him, I’d bring two folding chairs to the sidewalk outside the whitehouse. Sit down in one. The other one empty.
The first words of Pres. M. Romney in January:
My fellow Americans, Ive signed legislation that will outlaw al-Qaeda forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.
How can Netanyahu manufacture a crisis on which Obama holds an undisputed patent?
No but we wish he would
Bullllllllllllllllshit! If I were him, that's exactly what I'd be doing. Fair play is one thing, but the survival of a great nation is another.
Bibi, PLEASE hold a presser with an empty chair!
Wish the TV pundits would wake up and realize the end game of this Muslim uprising is the destruction of Israel. With unrest across the “United States of Islam”, it would be easy for Iran to direct this rage onto Israel. And where will we stand after the first atomic bomb drops in Iran or Israel?
Thank you. I can’t believe I even dared to type that...
I can’t believe it’s still up.
I wonder who made that allegation and why. In other words, "psychiatric projection".
He should schedule a visit with Romney...the Jewsih Americans would probably appreciate it.
