The Prime Minister eloquently pointed out that inspections and talks would not stop Iran from developing a nuclear capability that could destroy Israel.
Yet after Netanyahu’s speech, our President claimed that the Prime Minister has not offered any solutions to this problem. It was quite obvious by Obama’s lame comment that he did not read Netanyahu’s speech.
Israel’s leader clearly stated, “We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home...For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves…Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.”
Those words sounded like the words of a Prime Minister who has his back against the wall and is ready for a fight. How far Netanyahu will take military conflict is not clear, but back in 1981, Israel bombed Iraq’s nuclear facility in Osirak during Operation Opera.
Considering the tone of Netanyahu’s speech, a similar operation, if not more, should be expected.
Meanwhile our naïve President is clinging to the idea that his “deal” with the Iranians will somehow give us some say in their nuclear development.
In other words, Obama is putting his faith in a worthless piece of paper to be signed by a regime that Netanyahu claims is sponsoring global terrorism and threatening to destroy Israel. It is amazing that the President would think that Iran should have a nuclear program in the first place considering how much they hate Jews.
“Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology. He tweets that Israel must be annihilated.” Said Netanyahu.
President Obama is not the only oblivious leader to put his faith in a worthless scrap of paper. On September 29, 1938, England’s Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed a non-aggression pact known as the Munich Agreement with Adolph Hitler, Édouard Daladier (Fr), and Benito Mussolini in Munich Germany.
By March of 1939, Hitler’s Nazi army took all of Czechoslovakia instead of the Sudetenland, the portion Germany wanted to reclaim as its territory in the Munich agreement. By September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland causing England and France to declare war on Germany two days later, right after Hitler ignored their three ultimatums to withdraw from Poland.
So much for the scrap of paper Chamberlain and Hitler signed a few months prior.
Not everyone was as foolish as Chamberlain in believing that the power hungry Hitler could be trusted by signing a scrap of paper. Winston Churchill stated, “You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour and you will have war.”
Netanyahu, shrewd like Churchill, understands Iran, Iraq, Hezbollah, and Isis, better than Obama because he lives on the front line between the Jewish people and the countries that would like to annihilate Israel.
Unlike Obama the book smart president, Netanyahu lives in a country where Islamic extremist rush into picnics and buses strapped with explosives detonating their payloads killing many in the process.
According to a Reuters story, on September 24, 2012, former President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the United Nations and said that Israel, “has no roots in the Middle East and would be ‘eliminated.’” Nuclear weapons in Iran’s arsenal would certainly enable them to accomplish their goal.
It’s a shame our schoolboy President doesn’t realize what Netanyahu is trying to teach him or what Churchill was trying to teach Chamberlain. That signing silly scraps of paper cannot appease genocidal dictators.
History stands with Winston Churchill and Benjamin Netanyahu.
