    A former National Security Council official has told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that the Obama administration conducted a whisper campaign to smear Prime Minister Netanyahu and get the sellout to a nuclear Iran through Congress. According to the congressional testimony of Michael Doran — Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute and a former senior director in the National Security Council (NSC) in the administration of President George W. Bush — the White House initiated a “whisper campaign” against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cast him “as the villain of the Middle East peace process, an arch-nationalist with...

    Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged “overwhelming frustration” with Israel’s government on Monday and said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration has led Israel in the wrong direction, in an unusually sharp rebuke of America’s closest ally in the Middle East. Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said both Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahu’s government, suggested his approach raised “profound questions” about how...

    The United States does not consider the Golan Heights to be a part of Israel, State Department spokesperson John Kirby stressed on Monday, a day after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu vowed the Golan Heights "will forever remain under Israeli sovereignty." "The U.S. position on the issue is unchanged," Kirby told reporters during a daily briefing at the State Department in Washington, according to Haaretz. "This position was maintained by both Democratic and Republican administrations. Those territories are not part of Israel and the status of those territories should be determined through negotiations. The current situation in Syria does not allow...

Because, if folks imagined otherwise, perish the thought that Barack Obama’s presidency has been anything but a litany of foreign policy flunks, not that his domestic performance has been inspirational. No, whatever diplomatic disasters there have been under his feeble, two-terms reign are down to the ineptitude, cowardice even, of other world leaders and the man himself feels serially let down. In a frank and frankly churlish interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, recently published in Atlantic Magazine, the 44th US President absolved himself of all blame in steering the planet closer...

    Americans sensed there was still a bit of tension between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the latter leader cancelled their planned meeting this month. The Obama administration claimed to be blindsided by the announcement, but Israel’s government insists they warned the White House last week. Sources reveal that the prime minister decided to forgo the meeting because he was frustrated over a delay in defense aid. Yet, others say he simply didn’t want to visit during the peak of the U.S. presidential campaign. The bad blood between Obama and Netanyahu dates back a few years ago...

    The president partners with anti-Israel groups to sell the Iran nuke deal. On August 4, President Obama met with a group of Jewish representatives to warn them of the negative ramifications for Israel should congress reject what Charles Krauthammer described as the worst agreement in United States diplomatic history. Among those in attendance was Jeremy Ben-Ami of the George Soros-funded, anti-Israel advocacy group J-Street. J-Street has already pumped $2 million into shoring up support for the accord and its presence at the meeting was mystifying given the group’s consistently anti-Israel, pro-Obama positions. Perhaps Obama was utilizing Ben-Ami, whose group was...
  • WASHINGTON DIARY: IRAN DEAL COMES BETWEEN THE JEWS [Bibi to give another speech against Obama]

    Jewish leaders are targets of intense and vicious campaigns. 'This type of fight leads to divorce,' says one WASHINGTON. Almost three weeks after the Iran deal was signed in Vienna, the storm winds in Washington and Jerusalem refuse to die down. As the US Senate begins its final week of deliberations before lawmakers leave for their summer recess, both the Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu are set to give major policy speeches regarding the deal, targeting, among others, the hearts and minds of the Jewish senators who will be key to determining the outcome of the scheduled September vote on...

    John Kerry’s “don’t screw the Ayatollah” sales pitch has worked about as well as one might imagine today. One of the key figures for Kerry and Barack Obama to win on Congressional approval for the deal seems to care less about Ali Khameini’s trust in American good faith than in protecting American interests. Former DCCC chair Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) told Newsday that he will oppose the deal, despite a great deal of thought on how he might be able to support it: The highest-ranking Jewish Democrat in the House announced his opposition to the nuclear accord with Iran...

    US Secretary of State John Kerry has claimed the nuclear deal signed with Iran is “as pro-Israel as it gets,” and claims he “doesn’t know” if the Iranian leadership is serious about destroying the State of Israel. The comments were made in an in-depth interview with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, which was published Wednesday following intense lobbying for and against the deal as it heads to a fateful vote in Congress. Kerry warned Goldberg that if Congress voted down the agreement, it would “be the ultimate screwing” of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. “The ayatollah constantly believed that we are...

    It’s one thing to read extensively about the nuclear agreement with Iran and realize that the U.S. and the West come out losers in the deal.But when the details of the deal are presented using a chart showing what Iran, the U.S./West, and our regional allies get out of it, it’s very easy to see at a glance just how abysmal the U.S. fared at the negotiating table.The chart linked to below was created by American Friends of Ateret Cohanim, a non-profit organization located in Jerusalem. It was established during the Festival of Chanukah 36 years ago by Matityahu...

    Answering the top lies in the president's speech at American University. Remember President Obama’s outright lies as he was selling Obamacare? He is now lying on an even larger scale as he tries to sell his fatally flawed nuclear deal with Iran to a skeptical Congress, and to the American people, who currently oppose the deal by a large margin. In an address that Obama delivered on August 5th at American University, Obama deliberately misrepresented the terms of his deal and slurred those who dare to question it. In a highly offensive and partisan tone, he accused the Republican caucus...

    Israelis' united opposition to the Iran nuke deal isn't personal. It's about survival. It was obvious the fight over President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran would get very ugly, very quickly. And so it has. It was obvious that it would be ugly because the fight over Obama’s appeasement policy toward Iran has been going on since he took office six-and-a-half years ago. And it has always been ugly. Every time Obama has sided with the mullahs against domestic opponents he has played the Jew card in one way or another. He has blown more anti-Semitic dog whistles than...
  • Iran Threat of Genocide Against Israel Could Hinder Lifting of International Sanctions

    Iran’s threat of genocide by calling for the eradication of the Jewish state of Israel could complicate the removal of certain international sanctions against the Islamic Republic, an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal on Monday revealed. The U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide obligates signatories to prevent all forms and threats of genocide, which recent calls by Iranian military and political officials for the destruction of Israel clearly seem to contradict. And since a nuclear payload delivered by intercontinental ballistic missiles are the Iranian regime’s most logical tool to execute its apparent...

    As we learn more about the Iran deal — the side agreements, the lifting of the arms and missile embargoes, the loophole-ridden inspections regime — the more apparent it is that only people so enamored of their own work, so gullible to embrace the Iranians’ soothing words and so desperate for glory could have negotiated this deal. Rather than acknowledge the criticisms on the merits, the administration sinks lower and lower, casting aspersions on critics. When Secretary of State John Kerry announces that the world will blame Israel if the deal fails, we have left the realm of dignified debate....

    Secretary of State John Kerry sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview on Today earlier, defending the deal with Iran — and telling Israel to cool their jets, almost literally. In doing so, Kerry managed to turn Israel into the aggressor and Iran into a passive actor who might somehow decide they need a bomb only if Israel attacked them. It’s a strange reversal, and one that confirms the impression that the Obama administration has become the lawyers for the mullahs (via Jeff Dunetz): Lauer points out to Kerry that opposition to the Iran deal encompasses practically the whole...

    The United States and other world powers will help to teach Iran how to thwart and detect threats to its nuclear program, according to the parameters of a deal reached Tuesday to rein in Iran’s contested nuclear program. Under the terms of a deal that provides Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief, Iran and global powers will cooperate to help teach Iran how to manage its nuclear infrastructure, which will largely remain in tact under the deal. Senior Iranian officials, including the country’s president, celebrated the deal as a victory for the country. Iran’s state controlled media quoted President...
