Skip to comments.Netanyahu: Israel will act alone on Iran if necessary
Posted on 03/05/2012 1:48:55 PM PST by Marguerite
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted that Israel must remain the master of its fate as President Barack Obama urged restraint in dealing with Irans nuclear aspirations.
That's the very purpose of the Jewish state -- to restore to the Jewish people control over our destiny. And that's why my supreme responsibility as prime minister of Israel is to ensure that Israel remains the master of its fate.
Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy purposes, but most outside analysts believe its aimed at developing nuclear weapons capacity. Still, U.S. intelligence officials dont think Irans program is able yet to make nuclear weapons, and think theres still time to pressure Teheran to forgo that option.
We do believe that there is still a window that allows for a diplomatic resolution to this issue, Obama said

If Obama was unwilling to go beyond his everything on the table statement, Netanyahu was unwilling to roll back his we will act if we must rhetoric.
Don’t worry Obama has your back.
Thats what he told Larry Sinclair.
And Obama can be heard running away yelling
And Obama can be heard running away yelling
Barack will have our AWACS jam their electronics.
Yeah, who's Netanyahu going to believe, Obama or his own lying eyes?
Thanks for the laugh it is the only thing keeping me
sane the whole world has gone crazy!
“Netanyahu said nothing about the sanctions, nor diplomacy, and spoke in grave tones, looking directly at Obama.”
I waited all day to hear this.
Yasher Koach, Binyamin Netanyahu.
“None of us can afford to wait much longer. As prime minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation ... Amazingly, some people refuse to acknowledge that Iran’s goal is to develop nuclear weapons. You see, Iran claims that it’s enriching uranium to develop medical research. Yeah, right. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then what is it? That’s right, it’s a duck. But this duck is a nuclear duck and it’s time the world started calling a duck a duck” - Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu
As for sanctions..we used sanctions against N.Korea and they still got nukes and as for diplomacy? that is even a bigger joke.
Not to worry..... the Saudi Awacs will be on station

Caroline Glick: ‘Obama is Trying to Delay Israel Long Enough For Their Attack Window to Close’
While he didn’t pick a fight with Israel on Sunday, his speech did mark a clear attempt to undermine Israel’s strategic position in a fundamental - indeed existential - way. As many commentators have noted in recent weeks, Israel and the US have different red lines for the Iranian nuclear program. These divergent red lines owe to the fact that the US has more options for attacking Iran’s nuclear installations than Israel.
From Israel’s perspective, Iran’s nuclear program will reportedly become unstoppable as soon as the Iranians move a sufficient quantity of enriched uranium and/or centrifuges to the Fordow nuclear installation by Qom. Since Israel reportedly lacks the ability to destroy the facility, Israel’s timeline for attacking Iran will likely end within weeks. The US reportedly has the capacity to successfully bomb Fordow and so its timeline for attacking Iran is longer than Israel’s.
The reason this is important is because it tells us the true nature of Obama’s demand that Israel give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to work. When one recognizes Israel’s short timeline for attacking, one realizes that when Obama demands that Israel give several more months for sanctions to work, what he is actually demanding is for Israel to place its survival in his hands. Again, once Iran’s nuclear project is immune from an Israeli strike Obama will effectively hold the key to Israel’s survival. Israel will be completely at his mercy.
This part of the speech brought me to tears, to think he would actually have to say that. Picturing this great man having to deal with the humiliation of the Obama administration, or even of a Romney administration is unthinkable. How comforting it would be for him to have the peace of mind to work with NEWT.
How anyone can picture someone other than NEWT as leader of the free world is beyond me.
Basically, Newt said "NO, it would be leaked"
ROFL: and NEWT GINGRICH is right about this traitorous administration and Netanyahu knows that as well. Love it. Go NEWT, and GOD be with ISRAEL, NEWT will and I stand with NEWT.
Please Lord, let us have NEWT, a wise leader in whom I would trust a 3 a.m. phone call.
Yes. I watched Bibi’s speech to AIPAC and Newt’s wonderful interview.
He’s the only one who fully understands.
God be with Newt Gingrich.
Something has to give.
Our nation needs CIC Gingrich.
It is important to remember that Iran is ruled by the ayatollah and fanatic clerics not by Ahmadinjehad. We can't trust a madman to have so much power.
