Israeli Vice Prime Minister: Obama Encouraging Iranian Obstinacy

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon said on Friday he feared Iran did not believe it faced a real military threat from the outside world because of mixed messages from foreign powers, including the United States.

“We have an exchange of views, including with our friends in the United States, who in our opinion, are in part responsible for this feeling in Iran,” he told Israel’s 100FM radio station.

Moshe Ya’alon is not only the Vice Prime Minister, he is also Israel’s Minister of Strategic Affairs and the former Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces. And this is the closest he has come to saying that Obama is empowering Iran by dismissing the military option. For political reasons he cannot call out Obama, but when he speaks about the United States obstructing progress on Iran, he means Obama.

    Why do the Republicans hate the Muslims so much? Well they hate the Democrats, they hate the blacks, the Latins and their own President. Maybe they are Muslims because since they are spreading the word around that Muslims are hatemongers. Be brave Republicans and allow me to ask the nation 5 questions about 911 and please encourage Robert Spinster the priest to debate me on religion. He will talk about Islam and I will talk about Christianity.

      y do people blow themselves up yelling allah ahkbar?, y is it that 95 %of all terrorism comes at the hand of Islamists? Y do muslims think they are hated when it is their religion/political system of Islam that calls them to be unkind to the unbeliever , to hate jews and infidels (any one not believing in in Allah or the prophet Mohammad ?) and since when did sharing the truth become hate ??? Jesus is the WAY , the TRUTH and the LIGHT. Nowhere n the bible does it call for enslavement , killing of unbelievers . Also I have never read anywhere in the Bible where Jesus appeased his enemies , or called his followers to appease them. He said be kind to them not appease them.,

      Robert Spencer? I'm sure he would be happy to debate you anytime anywhere if you have the courage so why don't you contact him and arrange a debate on a nationally syndicated talk show so we can all hear Robert mop the floor with you, like I've heard him do so many others that make similar assertions as yours when they actually show up to debate and don't hang up!
