Netanyahu urges Kerry not to sign deal with Iran ("utterly rejects" "very, very bad deal")
Times of Israel ^ | November 8, 2013, 1:47 pm

“I met Secretary Kerry right before he [left] to Geneva. I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal. And the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge. But the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran for the first time after many years,” he said.

“Iran gets everything that it wanted at this stage and pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal, a very, very bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community,” Netanyahu added.

Kerry’s trip to Geneva was reportedly a last-minute decision that suggests a deal could be imminent.

Earlier Friday, Netanyahu told Kerry that Israel was not bound by any nuclear deal the West makes with Iran on its controversial nuclear program.

“I understand that the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva, as well they should be, because they got everything, and paid nothing. They wanted relief from sanctions after years of a grueling sanctions regime. They got that, ” Netanyahu said.

“This is a very bad deal. Israel utterly rejects it and what I am saying is shared by many, many in the region, whether or not they express it publicly. Israel is not obliged by this agreement and Israel will do everything it needs to defend itself, to defend the security of its people,” he affirmed.

Obama/Kerry/Jarrett promised their Iranian mullahs
that if “they wanted their nukes, they could keep them”.

The lesson to rogue States is clear; you need to get nukes for us to lift sanctions.

With swift, decisive, and overwhelming force, at a time when Israel has determined that the Iranians are close enough to completing a weapon that could destroy them. Netanyahu has to know that he (and Israel) are on their own, and will strike without informing the jug-eared muslim terrorist enabler...

John Kerry = America’s Neville Chamberlain. Difficult to believe how human beings make the same mistakes over and over even when history clearly defines the previous mistake and consequences. Kerry really believes he will outsmart history...truly amazing to watch.

“The ball is in Netanyahu’s court now. How will he respond?”

Obama has openly financed Netanyahu’s political enemies using US tax dollars as political contributions. Bibi has a lot of balls he’s juggling and he can’t afford to drop even one. Although Israel probably doesn’t really need the foreign aid we give them, there’s that to consider also as it gives Israel options.

My guess is Bibi will use his considerable assets to continue to sabotage the Iranian regime and their nuclear program. These were severely hit when Turkey gave Iran details on 10 Israeli spies. But Bibi’s next move will be to elevate his internal Iranian efforts, assuming he still can. Failing that he might hit Iran’s oil production. But Israel is equally vulnerable to a tit-for-tat in that area.

Bibi has no good options. He’s trying to avoid further conflict with his trading partners who are all politically correct diversity liberals. He’s trying to keep his own liberals from gaining power and he’s recently been hurt by political developments in his own country that have made his position weaker.

The one thing he probably won’t do is attack Iran directly. But he might encourage others like Saudi Arabia to do so. Iran is a much bigger threat to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar than to Israel.

John Kerry is no Neville Chamberlain.

Chamberlain never testified before Congress against his own country, nor did he converse with the enemy while fighting a war. Chamberlain never got 3 band aid wounds and claimed Purple Hearts for them. Nor did he have a magic hat.

Kerry is not a Chamberlain, he is more like a Quisling.

Still 96 Senators voted to confirm this traitor as SOS, that should tell you about the Good old boys club in the Senate.

“I do believe that there is a basis for a resolution [because] Iran’s Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons,” Obama told reporters.

Remember Francois’ famous words a few decades ago: “Nothing bad happened in Viet Nam after we left.”

he is laboring under the false impressions that 1- Obama loves the USA and 2- Obama is concerned for Israel.
If you dissuade yourself of those two assumptions, everything they do makes sense.

Based on news reports time is short. If Israel decides to eliminate Iran’s nuclear weapons they will do so within the month.

Remember last weeks news about the Chinese map of US military targets for a nuclear strike? It is my opinion that the Chinese were telling dear leader not to get in the way of a nuclear Iran. Now this week we have a deal. Certainly no coincidence.

Pray for Israel, pray for America.

Winning with 85% of the Jewish vote, our Muzzie POTUS is doing everything he can to undermine Israel.

Is this a great country, or what?

I say WHAT?!?

Hopefully the launch of 12 Jerico III IRBMs with x3 MIRV'd 200kt warheads and end this nonsense in about 30 minutes.

Elections have consequences. Obama’s made no secret of his fondness for anti-American regimes, and his disdain for tiny Israel. I hope the Americans who support Israel can express their rage over this sell out to the mad mullahs who’ve killed so many people, including Americans, in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. Iran is the number one country supporting terrorism. And Obama pull a Chamberlain to appease them.

I believe that Barack Obama (like his spiritual ancestor, Neville Chamberlain) believes that war is the ultimate enemy, and that appeasement is the only way to avoid such confrontation; therefore, any deal is better than no deal at all...
