Obama Inc. Blasts Israeli Defense Minister After He Says Israel Must Deal with Iran

Obama Inc. Blasts Israeli Defense Minister After He Says Israel Must Deal with Iran

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On March 19, 2014 @ 8:44 pm In The Point | No Comments

Ukraine may have been the final straw to convince Ya’alon that Obama is really going to let Iran go nuclear. And that if the Shiite bomb is going to be stopped, it’s going to be stopped by Israel.

Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon stunned both domestic and international observers yesterday when he signaled that he now leans in favor of a unilateral Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, according to multiple reports.

This comes in the wake of months of failed Western efforts, through the P5+1 states, to rein in the Iranian nuclear weapons project through negotiations and eased sanctions — and just two days after a senior state department official revealed that Iran was “very actively” violating UN embargoes on both its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Jerusalem could not afford to rely on US President Barack Obama to lead an action against Iran’s nuclear program, Ya’alon reportedly said. Israel had believed that “the one who should lead the campaign against Iran is the US,” but instead, “the US at a certain stage began negotiating with them, and unfortunately in the Persian bazaar the Iranians were better,” he said. Therefore, “we have to look out for ourselves.”

Obama Inc. is predictably reacting by throwing a fit. Obama inc. was furious after Ya’alon called Kerry “messianic”. And it’s even madder now.

The Obama administration is using unprecedented language to condemn Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon after he continued weeks of criticism of US President Barack Obama, and members of his foreign policy team, on Tuesday.

“We were shocked by Moshe Ya’alon’s comments, which seriously call into question his commitment to Israel’s relationship with the United States,” a senior administration official told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday night. “Moreover, this is part of a disturbing pattern in which the Defense Minister disparages the US Administration, and insults its most senior officials.”

Meanwhile Iran routinely threatens war, but Obama keeps appeasing it. Putin’s people slap them around and they ask if they can have another. The Palestinian Authority engages in vicious rhetoric, but keeps getting political support.

Expect Obama’s annual Persian New Year (Naw-Ruz) greeting to the Islamic Republic later today.

Have a dozen flashpoints and a disinterested, inept, incompetent, America hating president. That is a sure recipe for war, somewhere, sometime very soon.

Obama, Muzzie at heart, and loather of Israel and Bibi in particular, as Bibi is a real man, not a faux meterosexual.

Alon is simply stating what everybody already knows - that Obama Inc. is the most appeasing US administration in modern history. Alon (like millions of others) knows that Obama does not “have Israel's (or anybody else’s) back” regarding any threat at any time. The Israelis cannot afford to sit around and wait to be nuked. Obama has been consistent in that he is simply a stuffed shirt, grimacing here, grimacing there and this is destroying the West's deterrent capability to counter any move by the Axis of Evil. The end is near for American power projection via Obama’s “Soft Power” and “Reset” doctrines.
The Israelis (like other US allies) have sat back and watched the US put a revolver to it's temple, again and again. What can the Israelis be expected to do with the likes of Obama and Kerry at the helm? Die?

Ya’alon’s assessment may be right, but talking about it does not help. To quote Eli Wallach’s character in “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”, “If you’re going to talk, talk; if you’re going to shoot, shoot.”

These commie douchebags DON'T represent "The United States". They will be GONE in 3 years. Where are the GOP Senators/Congressmen to blast Obama and defend Yaalon who speaks the truth?

Woe to any country that messes with Israel. That’s just the way it is. Israel is God’s promised land and Jerusalem is His Chosen city. We know Who has already won the battle.

You’re thinking of Rabin, I believe. Ya’alon is current news.

Obama= mini-me Antichist.
I rank all nuclear proliferators like Obama and Bill Clinton as demons and antichrists. Include Vlad Putin too for enabling Iran same as Obama enables Iran

Bill Clinton helped China climb up the ladder of nuke miniaturization by leaving Los Almos wide open to foreigners. He also helped China get our MIRV technology
