Binyamin Netanyahu braces for personal US backlash on Iran The Obama administration is preparing to settle scores with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, for his campaign against US-led nuclear diplomacy with Iran, by holding him to blame for the impasse in Israel-Palestinian negotiations. This will ignore the uniform assessments by US and Israeli intelligence analysts that it is the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas who is holding out against all Secretary of State John Kerrys Herculean efforts for a peace accord with Israel, say debkafiles Washington and Jerusalem sources.
Abbas (Abu Mazen) is sure that he can get more from the international community by diplomatic manipulation and effective propaganda. He believes he holds enough cards and leverage to manage without having to reach terms for deals with the US or Israel. He is only playing along with the Americans and Israelis for one purpose not to lose US and other Western financial assistance. Earlier this month, the European Union said it would discontinue the $1 billion annual contribution to the Palestinian Authority if a peace accord with Israel was not signed within a year. Abbas appreciates that the Europeans would follow the American lead for an aid cutoff. The US-EU aid packages totaling $1.5 billion account for nearly all of the PAs regular revenue. The most up-to-date intelligence data reaching Washington and Jerusalem confirm that if Abbas were to find an alternative source of income, he would grab it and drop out of the peace negotiations like a shot. But the Obama administration and Netanyahu government alike are ignoring these assessments and pressing on with the talks, mindful of the end-of-April deadline set for reaching the finishing line.
This gap between reality and wishful thinking provides fertile ground for groundless speculation, such as the conjecture which drags the long-serving Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard into the equation in the form of a rumor that Washington may consider releasing him as a reward for Israels consent to release certain convicted Palestinian terrorists, including Israeli Arab citizens.
Another such rumor is that the US will put before the parties next month a final plan for resolving the Palestinian-Israeli dispute.
According to debkafiles Washington sources, Kerry refuses to be discouraged by Abbass evasions and has indeed drafted a non-binding five-page working paper, which is not a plan. He will put it before Netnayahu and Abbas early next month without asking for any commitments for or against the outline.
Both will be invited to record their reservations and comments. This will supply the fodder for extending the negotiations for several more months after the first six-month period expires.
Sitting on Netanyahus desk too, according to our sources, is a confidential report on the Obama administrations plans for personal retribution for the offensive he pursued against the signing of an accord to provide Iran with legitimacy for its nuclear program.
Washington plans to get back at the Israeli prime minister by pinning on him not Abbas - the blame for the inevitable impasse in the talks with the Palestinians. He will be depicted as a political failure who heads a dysfunctional government and a serial denier of peace.
This smear campaign will be conducted internationally and in Israel, by rallying Israels foes abroad and Netanyahus political enemies at home.
debkafile has heard from a high-placed source in Jeruslem that these plans are viewed in Jerusalem as highly problematical. They see Israeli and American media and other personalities recruited for a personal, political vendetta against the prime minister at a level well outside acceptable bounds - even when governments disagree.
Netanyahu is well aware that the Palestinian question is not the issue. He knows he is facing the music politically and personally - from the Obama administration for his effort to sway the US Congress against the policy of US rapprochement with a regime in Tehran which is dedicated to Israels extinction. Administration sources explain that Netanyahu will be receiving a dose of his own medicine and this is legitimate.
So, as John Kerry prepares to pay his 12th or 13th visit to Israel and Ramallah, Netanyahu faces three dilemmas:
1. Iran keeps on bragging that the Geneva accord brought its nuclear program and right to enrich uranium nternational acceptance, while at the same time flouting its provisions right and left. Cutting-edge centrifuges have been installed for speeding the enrichment of uranium close to weapons-grade, and the construction of the heavy water reactor in Arak continues apace. The Iranians are capitalizing on the failure of the Geneva conference to set a date for the onset of the interim six-month period for further negotiations, and using the time to further their military nuclear projects.
The Geneva accord was designed to disqualify the military option for ending Irans chase after nuclear weapons. So what happens now? 2. The level of Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israelis is expected by all intelligence branches to escalate. However, the Israeli government and military are tied hand and foot by the formality of ongoing US-sponsored peace talks with the Palestinians. Although they know exactly who is pulling the wires behind the current violence, the Israeli military cant strike at its heart. And so Israeli officials and military spokesmen are resorting to euphemist depictions, such as popular, disorganized violence, to avoid action.
3. The US campaign of deprecation against the Israeli government and its head has begun. How to deal with it?
The Obama administration will pass into the dustbin of history. Israel will survive. Obama never understood that Netanyahu is the secular leader and defender of the Jewish people. When a bizarre theocratic dictatorship make apocalyptic threats against the Jewish state, he will react and take the necessary actions to protect his people. Netanyahu’s entire life has been affected by the Holocaust. He cannot afford to make the same mistake the German Jewish leaders made in the 1920’s. They dismissed Hitler when they had the power to take definitive action but tragically did not.
Surely Mossad has the goods on Obama; isn’t it time that they use it?
Has it been confirmed by Prison Planet and The Onion?
No, the Scriptures teach of the 7 year tribulation which is coming before our very eyes as the world leaders try to destroy Israel, the prophecies of Scriptures are not referenced by the unlearned or by the religionists as they disregard the God of Israel warnings against all enemies of the coming King of the earth to Israel, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Know this, that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again the third day to justify all sinners who believe on Him only, the only begotten son of the God of Israel who will use Israel to bring in the Kingdom by destroying all enemies at the Armageddon war in Israel. Read Psalm 2.
Ps. I notice you use the same methods the foolish and hateful left does by mocking those you disagree with and belittling those who you disagree with.
Giving up one inch of land by the Israelis will prompt a response from the big guy upstairs.Don't believe it....take a look.
Nine Major Acts Of God That Coincided With The Timing of US Pressure On Israel To Give Up Land.
Several Israeli leaders have been removed from power, assasinated or fell ill after negotiating covenant land.
Caution, this is from debkafile — and it’s also 15 years behind the times, as Bibi as well as Israel itself has been the scapegoat for decades, particularly among the Judeophobes and skinheads. Thanks kindred.
Bibi would be a fool to give up land for the freedom of one person - and he's no fool. Yes, Pollard has been treated unjustly compared to others who have committed similar crimes (solitary confinement for life - who has EVER gotten a sentence like that in the U.S.?), but to right that wrong at the expense of the safety and security of millions is simply insane.
As for Obozo's coming campaign against Bibi, the former should understand that these things work both ways. Bibi is not without a mouth or without intelligence resources that can reveal and/or plant stories. Bibi is NOT the kind of guy with whom you get into a street brawl - not if you're a sissy like Barry Soetero.
Oh, and let's not forget the biggest factor...the Lord of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. He has a covenant to protect Israel, and He is not a habitual liar like this Soetero character. Much stronger and forceful characters than Soetero have gone up against the Jews and lost...and he will be no exception.
This has happened to Netanyahu before. He got in a shouting match with Clinton; Clinton responded by sending Carville to organize the campaign for Barak and got Netanyahu voted out of office.
The Geneva accord was designed to disqualify the military option for ending Irans chase after nuclear weapons.
War comes when peace is no longer possible. Making a deal with Iran that leaves its nuclear plants in operation guarantees war. The Geneva Accord guarantees war.
Forcing a peace treaty with the Palestinian arabs similarly guarantees war.
The more Kerry and Obama work their magic, the closer we come to war. Not brush war, not in-and-out skirmishing, but ugly war.
Nuclear war on the horizon and a small petty little man by the name of obama wants to get even because Netanyahu wants to save millions of lives.
