    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. But at present, the right thing for the State of Israel is to exhaust this possibility of reaching a long-term cease-fire. As Prime Minister, I have...

    President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday for agreeing to an Egypt-crafted cease-fire with Palestinian militants in Gaza. Obama, speaking to Netanyahu by telephone, also underlined America's unwavering support for Israel's security and said he hoped to "intensify" U.S. assistance. "The president commended the prime minister for agreeing to the Egyptian cease-fire proposalwhich the president recommended the prime minister dowhile reiterating that Israel maintains the right to defend itself," the White House said in a summary of the conversation.

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu invoked King David in a statement Tuesday evening signaling that he is serious about ordering an intensification of the attack on the terrorists of Gaza. "Our hand is outstretched in peace to those of our neighbors who want to make peace with us," Netanyahu said in a statement issued by his office, "and the other hand is firmly grasping the sword of David against those who wish to uproot us from this country."

    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...

    With Obama's reelection, there is absolutely no reason for Israel to wait any longer to attack Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows that America/Obama will not be there to aid them.That also means Obama will not be able to interfere with Israel's plan for a raid on Iran any longer. IDF_AirforceWe now know that -- as we reported some days ago now -- the Obama Regime has been secretly negotiating with Iran -- behind Israel's back -- for some sort of compromise deal on suspending Iran's endeavor to create the "Islam Bomb" (An Atomic Bomb).

So far, the White House won't say.But we do know one thing the president found time to do that evening: He placed a call to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to defuse a controversy about President Obama's refusal to meet with Netanyahu two weeks later at the U.N.

    The Obama vs Netanyahu political bloodbath has a sharp historical edge. 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 Labor party has hired...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he didn't know about any U.S. plans to talk bilaterally with Iran, saying tougher sanctions and a "credible military option" were the best ways to peacefully halt Tehran's nuclear program. 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. Addressing reporters at a civil defense drill to rehearse for a possible earthquake, Netanyahu accused Iran of having used talks...

    A top Iranian official says that Iran will be able to annihilate Israel within a day. According to The Jerusalem Post, Hojjat al-Eslam Ali Shirazi, representative to Irans Qods Force for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, claims that all they need is 24 hours and an excuse to attack the Jewish state. If such a war does happen, it would not be a long war, and it would benefit the entire Islamic umma [the global community of Muslims], Shirazi said, according to the Post. We have expertise in fighting wars of attrition and Israel cannot fight a war of attrition....

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming that Defense Minister Ehud Barak is trying to spark conflict between Israel and the United States. The two have been close confidants, with Barak, a left of center politician, originally giving Netanyahu legitimacy in the U.S. as a man of balance politically. Barak was Netanyahu's superior officer during their IDF service. According to Arutz 2, during a meeting Tuesday between the Prime Minister and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, Netanyahu revealed signs of mistrust and conflict between himself and his defense minister, saying Barak went to the U.S. to stir up trouble, with intentions...

    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...

    How America can stop what the New York Times calls Israels March to War is the hot topic this month. The issuefor the Timesis whether Israel is on the verge of bombing Irans nuclear sites, or can be persuaded to delay that decision and rely on the United States instead. This is what a parade of U.S. officials visiting Jerusalem this summer have counseled (and pressured) Israel to do. But the comments of Israels top officials suggest that its patience is wearing thin and that it may act soon, in weeks if not months. As the Associated Press put it,...
