Netanyahu to Obama: “No Red Lines for Iran Means No Red Lines for Israel.”

The official media narrative (TM) is that Netanyahu is either a coward who’s bluffing on Iran or a dangerous hothead who’s bound to begin bombing Iran at any minute. The nuanced reality is that the Israeli Prime Minister has done his best to do things Obama’s way and now time is running out.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lambasted the Obama administration today for its continued refusal to give Iran an ultimatum, telling reporters, “Those who refuse to draw red line to Iran don’t have the moral right to put a red line to Israel.”

That’s a clear statement that the options have been exhausted. Not the options on Iran, but the options on Obama. Netanyahu is telling reporters why Israel will have to go it alone and rejecting the notion that Obama has the right to deny Israel the right of self-defense against a genocidal nuclear program.

The source of the quotes is Barak Raavid, from Haaretz, an outpost of the far-far left, who also claims that Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu on the 28th. Meanwhile a supposed secret envoy from the UK’s Prime Minister Cameron warned Netanyahu against a unilateral strike. The ideal time for a strike is before the election. Once the election is over, Obama will be a lame duck with a free hand or a loser with nothing to lose by doing as much damage to Israel as possible.

Carter’s resentment against Jews for his defeat translated into an ugly demented career of spewing hate and enabling terrorists. Obama is likely to show even less restraint. The election is the only available restraint on Obama’s worst impulses toward Israel which creates a narrow strike window.

    The US has a moral obligation to stand with Israel against Iran. Iran is developing a nuclear weapons program and are not only anti Israel, but anti American. It will be a mistake to not take Israels side in this.

      Your comment stems from a rational point of view that this country has held since Israel was created. The problem is that Zero's objectives are not in line with your thinking or the thinking of the past. He is a Muslim and as such will seek the destruction of Israel. He may not do the attacking but he can inflict an enormous amount of harm none the less.

      And what is anyone in this country going to do about it any way??? We, the people are, still in the intellectual space of things, Zero knows this. Heck most of this country is still in denial of who Zero really is.

    this would be a better story if you'd quoted Bibi correctly. he said red LIGHTS, not lines, re Israel. "no red LINE for Iran means no red LIGHT for Israel"–in other words, if the US is unwilling to give Iran an ultimatum, they can't stop Israel from protecting itself.

    the fact that Obama is refusing to meet with Bibi is simply outrageous. to my liberal Jewish brothers and sisters out there: if you care ANYTHING about Israel, please don't vote for Obama again. you already proved that you're not a bigot by voting for him in 2008; this time, think about Israel before you cast your ballot.

      The quote comes from Barak Raavid and it's as follows " "Those who won't set red lines for Iran can't set them for Israel"

      Ravid was present when Netanyahu spoke. I was not.

        The video shows him saying red light.

    Obama has proven continuously that he will side with our enemies and throw our allies under the bus.

    Not only is Obama unfit to be Commander in Chief he is not fit to carry Netanyahu's boots.

    God bless you Bibi for standing up to the gutless traitor in the White House and rest assured Israel there are millions of Americans who support you.

    One day America will wake up and realize that Obama has been on a "Destroy the USA" crusade from the day he took office………… By sheer coincidence that was the same day he appointed Quran reciting Muslim, Hafiz, Rashad Hussain to the White House.

    One day America will wake up and realize that the biggest "racist" in America is Barack Obama who hides his contempt and hatred behind his well practiced fake smile.

    One day America will wake up and realize that Obama is the great deceiver and he does not have the leadership skills to run a chicken raffle let alone the USA.

    One day America will wake up and realize the great orator Obama is simply a fake who can read a teleprompter as he has demonstrated he is an awkward buffoon when his teleprompter fails.

    I remember Bibi Netanyahu being interviewed on camera during the first Gulf War when an incoming Scud missile exploded nearby. All of the people nearby went ducking and running for cover but Bibi simply went on with the interview without missing a beat.

    Bibi has real courage while the gutless Obama would pee himself with fear under the same circumstances.

    I still grapple with how I feel about liberal Jews. I guess I shouldn't waste the energy. One said to me yesterday "you can't mean the democrat party is bad." she did note believe the that they booed Jeruslaem &God. Or that Obama isn't a great guy. And this exchange occurred after she bemoaned that more people did not help to stop the Holocaust! Liberals are busy spewing hate at Republicans, Halliburton, fraking, and all the other false targets that distract them from facing the truth.
    Ach!

    I guess Obama is hoping to lose the election. He is trying to alienate a few more Jewish voters.
