    Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu should be considered the worlds most dangerous leader today. Its not because of what Bibi Netanyahu and Israel are capable of inflicting but because of what Bibi Netanyahu and Israel could ignite - a far greater conflict than just an Israel-Iran War that could extend all the way here. Alone, Israel might not even be able to defeat Iran. The Israelis should remember the heavy price they paid for the 2006 Hezbollah-Israel War that was fought in Lebanon. That was a shocking experience for Israel. A mere neighborhood bully stopped this mighty tiny Jewish...

    PM: Israel is giving the cease-fire with Hamas a chance; Barak: Truce is not an agreement but a set of understandings between Israel and Egypt, Hamas and Egypt; IDF official: Hamas will be shocked by level of damage in Gaza. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Israel is prepared to act if Hamas breaks the Egypt-mediated truce. "The operation's goals were met," Netanyahu said. "I know there are citizens that expect a harsher stand in Gaza - and we are prepared to make one. We choose when to act, against who to act and how to act," Netanyahu...

    On Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that Israel was accepting the U.S.-Egypt brokered cease-fire with Hamas, saying that it would provide an opportunity for the situation to stabilize and become calmer. But on his Facebook page Wednesday night, Netanyahu wrote that despite the cease-fire, it may be necessary for us to conduct a major and harsh military campaign against Hamas and if such a campaign would become necessary, Israel would follow through. Netanyahu was responding to thousands of Facebook commenters who slammed him, along with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, for failing to fully...

    אני יודע שישנם אזרחים שמצפים לפעולה צבאית חריפה עוד יותר, וייתכן מאוד שנידרש לה, אבל בעת הזאת, הדבר הנכון למדינת ישראל הוא למצות את ההזדמנות הזאת להשיג הפסקת אש מתמשכת. כראש ממשלה מוטלת עליי האחריות – והיא אחריות עליונה – לעשות את הצעדים הנכונים לשמור על ביטחוננו. כך נהגתי, כך אמשיך לנהוג. I realize that there are citizens who expect a harsher military action and we may very well need to do that.

    Netanyahu on Fox News Channel. Also said that the time for Israel to act is very short. I believe the re-election of anti-Israel Obama has been liberating for Israel. They know he will oppose them in self-defense and thus they have zero reason to wait any longer in saving themselves from the murderous lunatics running Iran. Yes, there will then be an oil shortage, esp. with out Obama-weakened Navy on the spot. But the alternative is an Iran with ICBMs and fission bombs. Not much of a choice.

    It's no secret that the New York Times detests Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- in its news columns as well as on the editorial page. So it comes as no surprise that, after President Obama's second-term victory, the Times relishes the prospect of Bibi getting his comeuppance, big-time, from the White House. In a post-election dispatch, Times Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren eagerly reports that Netanyahu may have risked Israel's "collective relationship with Washington" by rejecting Obama's demands for concessions to the Palestinians and by showing a preference for Mitt Romney, a long-time friend of the prime minister. "His...

When the conservative Israeli Prime Minister won the election during the Clinton Administration, Clinton used his political hit men to force him out of office. One of those hit men was Stanley Greenberg.Stanley Greenberg helped push Israels earlier version of Occupy Wall Street. Now with elections coming up, Greenberg is back in Israel to try and topple Netanyahu one more time.While Netanyahus reelection prospects are looking far better than Obamas, a major factor in Obamas Middle East policy is getting rid of Netanyahu.

The White House had earlier denied a New York Times report that Washington and Tehran had agreed in principle to hold bilateral negotiations to halt what the West fears is a plan by the Islamic Republic to develop nuclear weapons.

    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has scheduled a phone call for late morning Friday with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. President Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu on his trip to the United States, and the Israeli government presumably thought a meeting with the opposition candidate in the absence of one with the sitting president would be too provocative. But there was apparently an eagerness on the Israeli prime minister's part to talk with Romney in order to help win as broad American support as possible for the red lines he outlined in his...

    In a new presidential campaign television advertisement which starts airing today, September 20, in parts of southern Florida, theres only one person on screen and that one man isnt running for president of the United States.
