    Times of Israel ^ | March 1, 2015, 8:43 am | Stuart Winer
    Former US labor secretary Robert Reich offered sharp criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday, saying that the premiereís intention address Congress on Tuesday, against the wishes of the White House, was driving many US Jews to speak out against Israel when in the past they may have remained silent, and that the speech was ďpoisoning the relationshipĒ between Israel and the US In a post to his Facebook page, Reich, who was secretary during the Clinton administration from 1993 to 1997, appealed not to Netanyahu, but rather to the people of Israel, and warned them that the prime...

  • Obama's "Free" Nuclear Weapon Gift to Iran : Can the U.S. Senate simply NOT RATIFY this Treaty ?

    . 2015-02-28 So the Obama Whitehouse and State Department are supposedly negotiating an agreement with Iran that allegedly gives Iran tacit U.S. approval to design, test and field a nuclear arsenal. Who knows what other gifts-concessions Obama (the stealth Islamic iman) will attempt to give Iran via this agreement. My question is: Doesn't the Constitution require that this agreement (treaty) be voted on and ratified (approved) by the U.S. Senate ? If so, then it's politically simple work for the U.S. Senate to just say "hell no" to Emperor Obama. Is this analysis correct ? Comments are invited. .

    Iran has ended its large scale Great Prophet 9 exercise in the Persian Gulf, test firing a ďnew strategic weapon,Ē which it says will play an important role in the future battle against the US. The test was performed on the final day of the exercise, staged by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, through which about one-fifth of the world's oil passes.

    Iran's top nuclear negotiator said Saturday that "scaremongering" by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won't stop the Islamic Republic and world powers from reaching a final nuclear deal. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the world should not allow the hard-line Israeli leader to undermine peace. He was referring to Netanyahu's planned speech at the US Congress next week on the emerging nuclear deal that he considers dangerous. "Through scaremongering, falsification, propaganda and creating a false atmosphere even inside other countries, (Israel) is attempting to prevent peace," Zarif told reporters during a joint news conference Saturday with his Italian counterpart, Paolo...

On the eve of Obama's meeting, Egyptian sources revealed that Qatar was providing weapons and ammunition to members of the Islamic State in Libya. The sources said that 35 Qatari aircraft were involved in transferring munitions.

    For six years, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been on a collision course over how to halt Iran's nuclear ambitions, a high-stakes endeavor both men see as a centerpiece of their legacies. The coming weeks will put the relationship between their countries, which otherwise remain stalwart allies, to one of its toughest tests. Netanyahu is bound for Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama's cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Tehran.

Critics of the Obama administration view the unanimous approval as a rebuke to the White House and Democrats, who have vowed to boycott Netanyahuís address and work to counter his warnings about the dangers of a nuclear Iran. No Senate Democrats sponsored the measure, which attracted 50 Republican cosponsors.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the midst of a heated reelection campaign. Yet he is traveling 5,900 miles to give a speech before a joint meeting of Congress on March 3 ó just two weeks before Israelis go to the polls. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), working with Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, a former Republican political operative who renounced his U.S. citizenship, extended the invitation in a clear effort to undermine the president while the United States and its five partners engage in tough negotiations with Iran to prevent it from obtaining nuclear...

Four Democratic senators, as well as almost two-dozen House members, have already announced that they will not attend Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress on March 3. By doing so, they may curry favor with the White House, but they risk sending a dangerous message to Israel's enemies -- especially Iran. As recently as November, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned that the only "cure" for Israel is to "be annihilated." Is it any wonder that Netanyahu...

Unless there's a reversal in the reported deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, all the superficial talk about this extraordinary friendship between Israel and the United States isn't going to mean much.

    Krauthammer‚Äôs Take: Iranian Negotiations Are ¬ĎSimply Catastrophic¬í On Tuesday¬ís Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said the United States¬í ongoing negotiations with Iran are misguided and make President Obama¬ís other foreign policy blunders look favorable by comparison. ¬ďThis [deal] will mean a lifting of the sanctions, so Iran will be with a very strong economy, undeterred, nothing in any way holding it back; it¬ís simply catastrophic,¬Ē Krauthammer said. ¬ďIt is an unbelievably bad deal.

    Saudi Arabia is prepared to let Israeli fighter jets use its airspace if it proves necessary to attack Iranís nuclear program, an Israeli TV station reported Tuesday, highlighting growing ties in the shadow of Tehranís nuclear drive. Riyadhís only condition is that Israel make some kind of progress in peace talks with the Palestinians, Channel 2 reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed senior European source. ďThe Saudi authorities are completely coordinated with Israel on all matters related to Iran,Ē the European official in Brussels said. Jerusalem and Riyadh do not have diplomatic ties, but unconfirmed reports have swirled for years of...

    A group of Iranian dissidents said on Tuesday that Iran has an ďunderground top-secret siteí that is enriching uranium intended for nuclear weapons and which has been hidden from the West for years, Fox News reports. According to the Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the complex, called Lavizan-3, is right outside Tehran, ďburied deep underground in tunnels and underground facilitiesĒ with ďradiation-proof doorsĒ to prevent any leaks that could be detected by the United Nations International Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors. The revelations were unveiled during a Washington, DC, news conference by the NCRI, which...

    I really feel like slamming some of the chickens**t American Jews who regularly comment - both on this blog and on Twitter and Facebook - that Jonathan Pollard should rot in jail because what he did was so terrible they're afraid of being accused of having 'dual loyalties' if they actually question Pollard's life sentence. Much of the infamous Cap Weinberger memo (that Pollard's lawyers were never allowed to see) has been declassified, and it shows that much of the US government argument for keeping Pollard imprisoned is based on lies and mischaracterizes what Weinberger (an anti-Semite in his...

    In private talks with European sources, the Saudis have expressed their willingness to cooperate with Israel on Iran, including use of Saudi air space by the IDF for a possible air strike, according to a report by Channel 2. Cooperation with Saudi Arabia would not come free, however. According to the report, the Saudi officials said they would need to see progress between Israelis and Palestinians before having enough legitimacy to allow Israel to use their air space. Arab governments, not only Israel, have been expressing concern over the development of a deal with Iran over its nuclear program, the...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog Sunday of undermining his efforts to prevent Iranís nuclearization by declining to call a potentially nuclear Iran an existential threat to the State of Israel. ďI agree that a nuclear Iran is extremely dangerous, and I believe that it must be prevented,Ē Herzog said in an interview with Washington Post correspondents William Booth and Ruth Eglash. ďNo Israeli leader will accept a nuclear Iran. All options for me are still on the table,Ē including Israeli military strikes. When they asked if he agrees with Netanyahu that a nuclear Iran would...
