Israel’s Netanyahu calls Iran deal ‘historic mistake’
The Washington Post ^ | November 24, 2013 | William Booth

Posted on 11/24/2013 7:54:18 AM PST by yoe

Israeli leaders denounced (the interim Iranian nuclear pact) signed by the United States and five world powers as a “historic mistake” that does little to reverse Iran’s nuclear ambitions and instead makes the world a more dangerous place.

Israeli officials stressed that they would spend the next six months — the time frame for the interim agreement — seeking to push their friends and especially the White House to reach a deal with Iran that not only curbs Iran’s nuclear ambitions but dismantles its program.

[snip] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed Sunday that Israel was not a party to the talks that ended with a deal in Geneva early Sunday morning...

[snip] Netanyahu repeated a reference to his own red line by stating, “Israel will not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability.”

I’m so ashamed that my country has sold out America’s best friend. Oh well. Elections do have consequences.

He is absolutely correct, and there can be little doubt that future historians will mark Obama’s election as the first step to a horrendous war in the Middle East.

One holds out the rather meager hope that the conflict doesn’t spread all around the world.

Peres gives Obama top Israeli civilian medal

By Susan Crabtree - The Washington TimesMarch 21, 2013, 03:30PM

Israeli President Shimon Peres gave President Obama Israel’s highest civilian award, the Medal of Distinction, during a ceremonial dinner held in Mr. Obama’s honor Thursday evening at the Israeli president’s residence.

The medal recognizes Mr. Obama’s commitment to maintaining Israel’s security, and it is the first time in which an Israeli president has bestowed such an honor on a sitting president. Mr. Obama gave Mr. Peres, a lifetime Israeli politician who twice served as prime minister of the country, the U.S. President’s Medal of Freedom last year.

The Jewish vote went Obama.
The Jewish money went Obama.

Liberal Jews love to go on TV and call me racist for opposing Obama.

Now they can all kiss my ass.

I hereby apologize to Israel, on behalf of all REAL Americans. Many Americans suspect President Muhummad Al-Obama is a Kenyan, but few know Valerie Jarret, who secretly negotiated this “deal”, is Iranian. PERSIAN.

Once again, asking a question so oft asked “Why do American Jews vote mostly for Democrats?”

Will this deal be a game changer for that in the next election?

I doubt it

If the Jews did change their vote on the basis of support for Israel, FR would be flooded with accusations that Jews have dual loyalties and confirm the widespread belief that they are ‘Israel firsters’.

For people that haven’t seen them, here are Netanyahu’s 2 statements from this morning. The first one given to his cabinet in Hebrew (seen here with English subtitles) is tougher sounding than the second one where he spoke in English.

How many on this board actually want to see the USA posturing for or involved in another war in the Middle East, or those currently in the military or those whose kids are serving with their boots on the ground in Iran?

I sure don’t if for no other reason we can’t afford it as a nation, and also more than very weary of seeing Americans dying for other countries. I didn’t want it when Obama wanted to involve us in Syria either. We’re pxxxxng this country away and not to defend America. Screw em.

Maybe somebody can explain this Islamic quandary. The Iranians are mostly Shiites right? The Arabs are Sunnis. Al-Quead are Sunnis. The Sunnis as a ruling minority in Iraq were predominantly responsible for killing of Americans in Iraq with IEDS. The Sunnis and Arabs were the bad guys that attacked us on 9-11.

How is it then that the Shiites have become our biggest enemy when the Arabs have been our biggest problem?

Saudi Arabian and gulf oil dollars is the reason why. An oil embargo by arab nations would be catastrophic for the stock market. There would be a significant contraction of the stock market and when you can see that the top 5% of earners in the USA own more than 80% of the equity market it becomes a no brainer that the most powerful people here would try to appease the sunni muslims(GCC countries) political desires.
Granted, we are less dependent on middle eastern oil than in the past but the price of oil would skyrocket, while having an opposite effect on the stock market. With this Iran deal I am fairly confident that oil prices will likely drop.

I certainly have no love for ValJar. However, she is not an Iranian or a Persian.

It is true she was born in Iran. But her parents were Americans. Her father was a doctor, running a children's hospital.

Unlike Barry Soetoro, Bibi will defend his country.

Bibi is a warrior statesman, elected for his skills.

He will not let his people down.

Barry will economically enable the terrorist state of Iran, and Bibi will have some very important decisions to make.

A large majority of American Jews vote primarily domestic US issues, Israel being secondary for them. And on domestic US issues, Jews are heavily liberal.

Which puts the Jewish race into an interesting spot.

Here’s my read and yes it will be controversial. Jesus’ blood covers the Jews now, those who have placed their trust in the Almighty as they best understand Him for the care of their eternal lives. They are “shown mercy” because even though they jeer at the Christian Jesus, they “act out of ignorance and unbelief.” Many will even come to recognize that the Cross has saved them, before they leave this mortal coil.

So it’s more like, who believes in the God of the bible at His promise.

First, Jews are not a race, but a part of that race.

The House of Judah has preserved the most important knowledge for our times: The keeping of Yehova’s prophetic feasts. We need Judah more than Judah needs us, ‘we’ being the entire rest of the world.

Those feasts map out Daniel’s 70th week to the day. many will “depart into outer darkness” for lack of that knowledge.

Don’t cry, Flyer. These rhings have all been written and they must come to pass. In G-d’s time, not ours. Iran is about to see prophecy fulfilled, but so is Israel. It can’t be stopped and the best we can do is hope to survive and find our way home.
G-d has already told us what we must do. If so many refuse to listen or hear, there is nothing we can do about it except pray that they hear and obey before their time is up.
But I tell you that as long as one of us is left to draw a breath, Israel lives. Am Yisrael Chai.

What was achieved last night in Geneva is not an historic agreement; it is an historic mistake. Today the world has become a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step toward attaining the most dangerous weapon in the world.

For the first time, the world's leading powers have agreed to uranium enrichment in Iran while ignoring the UN Security Council decisions that they themselves led. Sanctions that required many years to put in place contain the best chance for a peaceful solution. These sanctions have been given up in exchange for cosmetic Iranian concessions that can be cancelled in weeks.

This agreement and what it means endanger many countries including, of course, Israel. Israel is not bound by this agreement. The Iranian regime is committed to the destruction of Israel and Israel has the right and the obligation to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. As Prime Minister of Israel, I would like to make it clear: Israel will not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability."
