Netanyahu Makes Appeal To US Voters Over Iran
Fox News ^ | September 16, 2012

Posted on 09/16/2012 6:23:19 PM PDT by possum john

WASHINGTON – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a direct appeal to American voters on Sunday to elect a president willing to draw a "red line" with Iran, comparing Tehran's nuclear program to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and reminding Americans of the devastating repercussions of failed intelligence.

His remarks were an impassioned election-season plea from a world leader who insists he doesn't want to insert himself into U.S. politics and hasn't endorsed either candidate. But visibly frustrated by U.S. policy under President Barack Obama, the hawkish Israeli leader took advantage of the week's focus on unrest across the Muslim world and America's time-honored tradition of the Sunday television talk shows to appeal to Americans headed to the polls in less than two months.

“The Hero of Entebbe has always had my vote.”

That was his brother, Yonnie (Jonathan). He was killed in the raid.

Mr Prime Minister, if obama refuses to meet with you, please, I beg of you, have a joint press conference where you very publicly meet with an empty chair.

E-mailed meme from Chicago to all our Media Comrades:

1. Bibi is an unhinged lunatic.
2. Bibi and Romney are good friends.
3. Therefore, Romney must be an unhinged lunatic.
4. Please include within all articles quotes from at least 3 prominent American Jewish politicians and community leaders who agree with these sentiments.

Can Fox News provide some video/audio of the appeal? I saw the interview from Meet The Press w/ David Gregory (punk) and Netanyahu steadfastly refused to be drawn into remarking on the election or the candidates.

Agreed. We should listen to him. They are right on the front lines in having to deal with radical Muslim madness.

There is no doubt in my mind. Romney and Bibi are personal friends. If you look at some of Romney’s national security staff, they have a deep understanding of Islam’s evil nature. Secretly, I have a feeling Romney detests the ‘religion of peace’

Netanyahu knows something about world history that Obama has failed to learn.

The Roman Republic has been the only government in recent world history that knew exactly how to deal with barbarians such as now inhabit the Muslim world. The barbarians of Carthage threatened Rome, so the Romans went to Carthage, killed all the male population, put the women and children into slavery, destroyed their cities, and then strew salt upon the land so it would remain infertile forever.

The total destruction of Carthage guaranteed peace for over a thousand years within the Roman Empire, as any of Rome’s barbarian neighbors knew what happened to Carthage would happen to them if they ever threatened Rome. It was only when Rome became too civilized to do what was necessary to survive and attempted to deal with the barbarians using diplomacy and tribute that they didn’t survive.

Netanyahu knows World History, and he knows the only way to deal with his barbarian neighbors and survive is to turn Iran into another “Carthage.” Anything less and Israel will cease to exist.

If Obama believes this is too harsh and we should deal with these barbarians with diplomacy and tribute, then I believe our country has become too civilized to survive in a world where barbarians possess nuclear weapons and we will not survive.

Any nation that becomes too civilized (soft) to do what is necessary to survive, as our country seems to have become, does not deserve to survive and will not survive.

We will find out in the November election what the future holds for the American people.

Yes Romney does love Israel and Bibi knows it. IMO Bibi also knows that Romney has the "stones" to do what is necessary.

They have known each other for some time.

I get the feeling that some Jewish voters in the USA have turned their back on Israel. Why, I don't know but I suspect they are life-long Demoncrats come what may.

God Bless Prime Minister Netanyahu.

You'd think they would take note. But, I don't understand their undying support for democrats in the first place. Doesn't make any sense.

Please consider emailing Prime Minister Netanyahu and tell him from your heart what you think. It is a very good thing to let him know that we appreciate that he spoke out.

Ok, I understand that Romney and Netanyahu are friends, that doesn’t beg the question: will Romney have the stones to draw the line?
When push comes to shove will Romney stand with Israel, and I will say again I do not know.

He knows Israel doesn’t have anything near the forces to do a successful attack. If they did, they would have done it by now. He wants the U.S. to do it.

Click Here for this excellent video as Cong. Michele Bachmann explains reality.



As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Bachmann completes a terrific presentation on the many issues that Obama is pursuing in moving the US under the influence of Islamic radicals. All of this is being completed with the silence and collusion of our major media outlets. This is a heads up presentation for those who care about free speech.

Romney has previously stated that he and BiBi were friends when they both were attending Harvard, so they have known each other as friends for many years.
