Netanyahu at UN: Stop Iran —- or We Will

P. David Hornik is a freelance writer and translator living in Beersheva and author of the book Choosing Life in Israel. 


net5In his speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu provided a dose of much-needed realism and clarity on the Iranian nuclear issue.

After some rhetorical flourishes about Jewish history, Netanyahu began with the “charmer,” Iranian president Hassan Rouhani. Why a poker-faced Holocaust denier was found charming by so many people is a good question, but charming they found him, and there probably wasn’t a single mainstream news outlet that didn’t call President Obama’s brief phone chat with him “historic.”

So Netanyahu reviewed some hard facts about Rouhani that reality-oriented commentators have been noting for a few months now. In the past he was a sinister terror chief, head of Iran’s National Security Council in the years of the Buenos Aires bombing and the Khobar Towers bombing, which killed 85 mostly Jewish civilians and 19 American servicemen, respectively.

He’s also a seasoned con man, proud of having duped the West in the past on Iran’s nuclear program. “While we were talking to the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing equipment in Isfahan,” Rouhani wrote in 2011 about his 2003-2005 stint as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator—Isfahan, as Netanyahu clarified, being the facility where Iran turns uranium ore into uranium for the bombs it will soon be producing en masse unless something is done about it.

Still more material on Rouhani has surfaced in an overview by Steven Ditto of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. It turns out, for instance, that Rouhani blamed 9/11 on the “wrongs and mistakes of American policies,” and said Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, was “shot down by the U.S. Air Force.”

Anyone still charmed by the charmer is, well, determined to be charmed no matter what.

If the “charm offensive” is, then, a transparent fraud, and Iran remains, as Netanyahu put it, a “fanatic regime” that keeps building ICBMS that will be able to reach the U.S., rapidly amassing stockpiles of both 3-percent and 20-percent enriched uranium, and adding thousands of new centrifuges including advanced ones—does much-vaunted diplomacy still have any role to play?

Netanyahu said it did, but said diplomacy would have to “require Iran to do four things” that are, unfortunately, unimaginable:

First, cease all uranium enrichment…. Second, remove from Iran’s territory the stockpiles of enriched uranium. Third, dismantle the infrastructure for nuclear breakout capability, including the underground facility at Qom and the advanced centrifuges in Natanz.

And, four, stop all work at the heavy water reactor in Arak aimed at the production of plutonium. These steps would put an end to Iran’s nuclear weapons program and eliminate its breakout capability.

They would, but getting Iran to go through with them would, of course, require a very tough and resolute leader of the West. “Tough and resolute” are words no one would have applied to Obama’s foreign policy even before the Syrian debacle, even less after he allowed himself to be played by Russian president Vladimir Putin on the world stage.

In spelling out what shape successful diplomacy would have to take, however, Netanyahu sought to convey two things: that Israel does not oppose diplomacy in principle, in fact would prefer it if it could succeed; and that Israel will not settle for a sham diplomatic “solution” that leaves enough of Iran’s nuclear facilities in place that it will stay on its path toward the bomb.

And if Iran’s program is left standing, Israel, Netanyahu said toward the end of the talk,

will never acquiesce to nuclear arms in the hands of a rogue regime that repeatedly promises to wipe us off the map. Against such a threat, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself.

I want there to be no confusion on this point. Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons….

Netanyahu gave his talk on a day when the New York Times and others were reporting that the sanctions are taking a very serious toll on Iran’s economy; as he put it, “the international community has Iran on the ropes.” Netanyahu can take the credit for finally getting the West to relate seriously to the problem and make Iran pay a price for its blatant defiance of Security Council resolutions meant to curb its nuclear program. Netanyahu cannot, however, rest easy with the thought that a Ronald Reagan is now in the White House who would know how to exploit the situation and bring a totalitarian enemy to its knees.

Not surprisingly, since it would be impolitic especially on U.S. soil, Netanyahu did not raise the possibility of a U.S. strike on Iran. Whether or not he believes such a possibility exists is a function of his hours of talks with Obama and the impression he derives from them. Again, it seems unlikely that Netanyahu puts much stock in such an outcome.

If, then, all else fails, will Israel indeed take matters in its own hands? Given the depth of Netanyahu’s identification with Jewish history and the power of his sense of responsibility, the working assumption should be that it will.

    I pray to God he means it. We will deeply regret letting Pakistan getting nukes. Let’s not compound the problem by letting Iran do the same.

    • Bamaguje

      Netanyahu is talking too much. Israel did not make this much noise before taking out nuclear facilities in Iraq and Syria.

      • ziggy zoggy

        It was a preemptive excuse. When the mullah’s come whining to Obama and the U.N, Netanyahu will shrug and say: “I warned you.”

        • MLCBLOG

          Exactly.

    • MLCBLOG

      Of course he means it. That is why he is saying it, so that when they do take action there will be enough in print and on the air waves for people to look back. He is making the case for what obviously has to be done.

  • AdinaF

    Those of us who live in Israel, Jews around the world, plus people of good will and conscience, surely want to believe that PM Netanyahu’s soaring rhetoric will be matched by actions.

    Nevertheless, if past is prologue, there is much room for doubt. In fact, he tethered all of his tenure to the Islamist-in-Chief’s dictates, completely unable to extricate Jerusalem’s imperatives from Washington’s.

    In any case, some food for thought is found within the following commentary, and my close contact, Professor Louis Rene Beres, is of like-mind. We consult regularly.

    Moreover, as the person who was Chair of ‘Project Daniel’, the nuclear warfare study given to both PM Sharon, PM Netanyahu and President Bush, suffice it to say he is more than well informed –

  • truebearing

    Obama’s perfidy is blatantly apparent and Netanyahu has no choice but to call out the Iranians and disrupt Obama’s agenda. He knows Rouhani and Obama are cut from the same cloth. He knows both are fork-tongued charmers, and as insincere as humanly possible.

    My theory on what Rouhani is up to, most likely with Obama’s tacit approval, is grandstanding over Iran’s willingness to give up nukes — because they actually already have them — to convince the international community they are peaceful and that the Middle East can be a nuclear free zone. If that lie gains traction, their next move will be to demand that Israel give up its nukes, which will be received favorably by the mutton-headed Europeans, American Left, and the UN. Israel will then be painted as the intransigent warmongers, internationally demonized for insisting on keeping their only deterrent to genocidal attack. And of course, Obama will make all kinds of empty promises of military support for Israel….with his fingers crossed behind his back. Israel’s continued refusal will be used as a pretense for cutting off aid or military support.

    Iran’s Plan A is simple: destroy Israel with as few consequences to itself as possible. If Israel should give up its deterrent, they’d eventually be forced to fight insurmountable numbers of Muslims, from all directions, in a conventional war. Iran knows that without the US on Israel’s side, Israel can’t win against overwhelming numbers in a conventional war.

    If Plan A fails, Iran will have bought plenty of time to make more nukes and better missiles….though they promised not to.

    • ziggy zoggy

      Are you sure the islamopithecines can beat Israel in a conventional war? Conventional wars require cannon fodder.

      Islamopithecines are abject cowards who ALWAYS choose to commit any atrocity rather than stand and fight like men.

      We have known since the Crusades that they are pusillanimous.

      • defcon 4

        Suicide bombers, the 9-11 terrorists and most of the Mumbai attackers are all willing to die for allah. If it’s not courage, it’s close enough.

        • Guy

          It is anything but courage. It is conviction. They were bread to believe there is life after death and that such life are much more satisfying then their current state.
          These are brained washed people holding the original Mine Kampf in their hands and conviction in their head.

          • ziggy zoggy

            I agree. Bravery has nothing to do with it. They are deluded cowards who will never face Israelis or Americans in open combat.

        • ziggy zoggy

          I understand your point, but all those bombers are told that they will feel no pain when they detonate and that they will be transported straight to whore house Heaven and their 72 raisins.

          None of them ever stand and fight. Look at the terrorist scum in Afghanistan and Iraq. Always roadside bombs and attempted ambushes. Never direct engagement.

          Islamopithecines have always been pu$$ie$. I remember a cool story from one of the Crusades. A knight had his armor down around his ankles and was squatting to take a $hit. Naturally, a heroic warrior of the prophet chose that moment to attack him. The Knight jumped up with dropped trou and dangling turd nugget and used his sword to chop the islamopithecine to quivering little chunks. Israel has never lost a war with those pu$$ie$.

          I don’t think the islamopithecines have the b@lls to face Israel in open warfare, much less the capability.

      • truebearing

        it’s all very hypothetical, but if enough of the Muslim population, including countries like Turkey — which has a large army and modern weapons — join together to attack Israel, it is hard to imagine how a small country like Israel could defend itself successfully in a prolonged war. Obama knows this, yet continues to push Israel into what he knows will be a no win situation. The Muslims know Obama won’t help Israel. The situation is very serious, which is why Netanyahu came out throwing haymakers.

        It was essential that Netanyahu was convincing in his UN speech, which he was. Iran has to believe Netanyahu will act resolutely, and that resolute action includes the veiled threat of Israel using nukes, if forced to. Iran doesn’t want to get nuked. Obama doesn’t want his schemes disrupted by an Israeli attack on Iran that could lead to a nuclear exchange. So for now, Netanyahu’s speech will have a somewhat desirable effect on Iran and Imambama.

        That Israel is ready to do WHATEVER is necessary to defend itself will, of course, be twisted by Iran, Obama, Muslims in general, the UN, and the international Left, until Israel is made out to be the source of the problems in the Middle East. Eventually, they will use Israel’s nukes as proof that Israel is the cause of all problems in the universe. There is no easy way out of this mess, especially with Imambama siding with the Muslims.

        • ziggy zoggy

          I don’t know, Man. Do you really think the islamopithecines have the logistical ability to attack en masse? Would it work even if they could do it? You know your country better than I do but I doubt the capability and willpower of our enemies. Yeah, they want to kill us, but can they?

          I think they would have done it a long time ago if they could have.

          I don’t know. One thing I am sure of is that Netanyahu will attack Iran’s nuclear weapons factories very soon. I look forward to it.

    Again we have to thank Putin for showing what a pathetic “leader” 0′Bama is, and that defying him is no big deal. Then congress took a shot, and finally Netanyahu realized that openly defying the moronic POTUS is really no big thing outside of the minds of unhinged leftists.

  • adumbrate

    It is painful to consider how the American media covers Obama’s “negotiations/talks” with Iran as 2 divorcees talking finally after years of silence and hate (Americas reluctance is covered as “hate” by western media). This “historic” love fest for weakness – while at the same time the media refers over and over to the American right as evil doers.
    I fear what Iran has to do for the world to wake up to evil.

    Goat rodeo.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      This whole administration has been a choreographed performance designed to “make” history (as opposed to recording history as it happens). It’s all part of the show and Obama’s handlers are playing dice with the lives in Israel.

      Even without a sufficient means to deliver bunker-busters, Israel can create enough instructure damage to ensure those complexes remain stagnant or even useless for a very long time. Surely this has already been considered.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “Even without a sufficient means to deliver bunker-busters, Israel can create enough instructure damage to ensure those complexes remain stagnant or even useless for a very long time. Surely this has already been considered.”

        Agreed. Having the USA do it is a superior solution for technical and political reasons, but that doesn’t make Israel impotent in dealing with it. Not at all.

      • defcon 4

        Creating any damage to Iran from Israel is going to be a tall order. The IAF would have to fly over other islam0fascist states just to get to Iran and I’m not even sure if the IAF planes have the range to do it.

        • ziggy zoggy

          Yes. It will be difficult. We can both think of solutions to the logistical problems, though. I’ll bet the IDF has as well.

          I just hope Netanyahu does it soon. I can’t think of a better time than now, with Obama’s contemptible government shutdown. It is the perfect distraction.

          Did you read that, Bibi? Just do it.

      • Moa

        Just a note, Israel has been stockpiling bunker busters for years. They ordered a few of the really deep penetrating ones in the last few years.

        Note: the window for Israel to strike is closing. Not only because of Iranian progress, but also because the Russians have offered to give the Iranians the S-300 system after many years of dragging their feet (this is a very powerful surface-to-air missile system, at least as good as the US Patriot and possibly better).

        The US unwillingness to act in the interest of everyone, Russian meddling and Iranian determination to get WMDs is forcing Israel’s hand. Clearly the Israelis are still hoping the International Community can be convinced to act – but looks like they realise how useless the overpaid hot-air talkers at the UN really are (again! just like the League of Nations were).

        • defcon 4

          Why are the Russians still kissing islam0nazi arse? They don’t need the oil the islam0nazis pump out of the ground.

  • Chezwick

    I’m a skeptic. For one thing, even the Likud has been historically deferential to the wishes of America (at least on issues beyond Settlements)….and it’s painfully obvious where Barry stands. An attack in opposition to America’s stated goals could and probably would shatter US-Israeli relations. Will the Israeli government risk jeopardizing what is by far the most important relationship it has in the world?

    For another, the logistics and scope of the operation require capabilities (aerial-refueling, deep-penetration ordinance, a vast array of targets)….that might transcend Israel’s abilities. And finally, Hezbollah has at least 40,000 rockets ready to rain down on Israel in the event of a strike on Iran. This is not going to be some clean, surgical operation folks. It’s going to be bloody carnage and will escalate to a full-fledged regional war. Lebanon figures to be rubble afterwards.

    I’m not saying I’m opposed, not for a minute….I’m merely pointing out that the obstacles are formidable….and it will take some mighty gonads indeed for the Israeli PM to give the order.

    • wildjew

      What are Obama’s goals if not to buy time for Iran to join the nuclear club? An attack on Iran’s nuclear site might shatter US-Israel relations for a few days or weeks at the most.

      Arutz Sheva: “In general, an Israeli Air Force (IAF) strike on Iran’s underground nuclear facilities from Natanz to Fordow, in particular, might require the most lethalcombination of sophisticated precision-guided bunker-buster weapons (GBU-27 and GBU-28) that can only be carried on B-2 Spirit stealth bombers.

      “In large measure, Israel already possesses these weapons, built either on their own or sold to it by the U.S. But, it is unclear how Israel would deliver the GBUs maximum payload short of B-2s.

      “Furthermore, Israel’s possession of Jericho III intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), that can reach New York and Tokyo, are capable of striking Iran’s above-ground targets. The high speed of the ICBM makes it practically invincible for interception and will free up IDF aircrafts to focus on hardtargets.

      In absolute terms, Israel could use tactical nukes- but the IDF might opt to use the much vaunted precision guided GBU-31s which have the same warhead as Israel’s existing GBU-28s (the BLU-122 warhead)- to augment the IAF’s existing capabilities….”

      Chezwick: “And finally, Hezbollah has at least 40,000 rockets ready to rain down on Israel in the event of a strike on Iran. This is not going to be some clean, surgical operation folks. It’s going to be bloody carnage and will escalate to a full-fledged regional war…”

      Remember what British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said to George H. W. Bush in the lead-up to the Persian Gulf War: “Now don’t go wobbly on me.”

      • Chezwick

        >An attack on Iran’s nuclear site might shatter US-Israel relations for a few days or weeks at the most.”

        Don’t kid yourself, my friend. It may be a game-changer, the singular event that ends the ‘special relationship’ that has existed since ’67. My guess is that relations wouldn’t mend at least until Obama is out of office. Of course, I could be wrong.

        >But, it is unclear how Israel would deliver the GBUs maximum payload short of B-2s.

        A very major point….one that militates AGAINST attack.

        >In absolute terms, Israel could use tactical nukes…

        Never happen. Israel won’t be the first to use WMDs.

        “Now don’t go wobbly on me.”

        Oh, I’m not Amigo. I feel the urgency, just like you. I’m merely pointing out to those who think it can be done relatively painlessly that, on the contrary, it’s going to be very messy. But if or when it’s a go, I’ll be defending Israel’s actions passionately to anyone who will listen.

        • wildjew

          Who is arguing it will be painless? It’s “messiness” depends largely on Iran’s response, doesn’t it?. You wrote: “It’s going to be bloody carnage and will escalate to a full-fledged regional war.” Again, doesn’t that depend on Iran?

          I am not at all convinced Israel will act against Iran’s nascent nuclear sites before they detonate their first nuclear weapon. Then all bets will be off. I am not convinced because Israel has “been historically deferential to the wishes of America,” if not naively trusting that America has Israel’s back when clearly the United States along with the international community do not have Israel’s back. That’s been the history of the conflict. The United States acts in what she perceives to be her own self-interests in the region.

          Bush’s surrogates pressured Israel not to attack Iran’s nuclear sites. Remember Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen’s hand-wringing over a potential Israeli strike at a time when the U.S. had lots of troops and military hardware in the region? Obama and his surrogates have increased the pressure. If I were a betting man, my money will be on the prospect that Iran will become a nuclear power, multiplying nuclear weapons in preparation for the return of the 12th imam. Americans and the West in general ought to be prepared for “massive carnage” one day at the hands of Islam on a grand scale — which would make the carnage you predict (should Israel preemptively attack Iran’s nuclear sites) child’s play by comparison.

          • Chezwick

            >It’s “messiness” depends largely on Iran’s response, doesn’t it?

            I think it’s a safe bet that Hezbollah’s arsenal will be at Iran’s disposal.

            >I am not at all convinced Israel will act against Iran’s nascent nuclear sites before they detonate their first nuclear weapon. Then all bets will be off.

            Precisely why I expressed the skepticism in my original post.

            > If I were a betting man, my money will be on the prospect that Iran will become a nuclear power, multiplying nuclear weapons in preparation for the return of the 12th imam.

            I would agree….but would take it a step further. I think in a decade, Iran will have over a hundred nukes and an ICBM capability to deliver them anywhere in the world.

            >Americans and the West in general ought to be prepared for “massive carnage” one day at the hands of Islam on a grand scale — which would make the carnage you predict (should Israel preemptively attack Iran’s nuclear sites) child’s play by comparison.

            Absolutely. The proliferation genie is out of the bottle. It’s a ‘brave new world’.

          • Chezwick

            PS – There is a strong possibility that Iran’s first nuclear test will occur in North Korea, which might give the regime enough plausible deniability to perhaps stave off retaliation.

        • Bamaguje

          I don’t agree that an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities would shatter US-Israel relationship.
          It may shatter Obama-Israel relationship (if he’s still president when Israel strikes), but not US-Israel relationship.

          The U.S. will make the usual perfunctory diplomatically correct noises in event of an Israeli strike, but she will eventually come around to Israel’s side.
          Does America have any other reliable ally in the region?

          If I were Israeli leaders, I’d put survival of the Jewish nation way above friendship with an unreliable ally. Israel fended for herself without America during the very crucial 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israeli wars.

          As for Hezbollah and Iranian retaliation, I wouldn’t worry about that… they have their hands full in Syria.

          • Chezwick

            >If I were Israeli leaders, I’d put survival of the Jewish nation way above friendship with an unreliable ally.

            With you all the way. My emphasis on the point is simply that – all his tough talk notwithstanding – Netanyahu might be deterred by the desire to maintain good relations with the States.

            >Israel fended for herself without America in the very crucial 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israeli wars.

            From ’48 to ’67, France was Israel’s patron. But Israel is no longer an infant, so she’s much better prepared now to fend for herself. Question is, in the event of a break with America, how would she do in the long-run, given the costs of R7D.

            >As for Hezbollah and Iranian retaliation, I wouldn’t worry about that… they have their hands full in Syria.

            Don’t kid yourself. There are over 40,000 rockets hidden in homes and caves all over southern Lebanon and the Bakaa valley. Mark my words, should Israel attack, they’ll be unleashed

        • NAHALKIDES

          I agree with you. Taking out Iran’s nuclear capability is probably beyond Israel’s military, or indeed that of any country save the U.S. And it probably would shatter U.S. – Israeli relations until Barry is out of office. But Israel is being backed into a corner – if it comes down to risking their relationship with America or trying to contain a nuclear Iran, I figure they’ll attack.

          The wildcard here is the unknown state of Iran’s nuclear program. If it’s further along than Israel believes, they might wait too long, until Iran decides to test its new bombs on Israeli soil in a surprise attack.

          • defcon 4

            WRT that last paragraph, what a sickening and depressing thought.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Why would blasting Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities be impossible for Israel?

            They don’t have to be destroyed. Just set back. And seriously. Their stupid little underground bunkers don’t have to be destroyed. How are the mullahs going to use facilities that they can’t even access after they’re buried beneath thousands of tons of debris?

            And what if Netanyahu decides to stop the source of Iran’s islam by greasing the mullahs? Who will continue their nuclear program?

            No. Iran is about to get fucked……and it’s about time.

          • NAHALKIDES

            My concern is with Iranian air defenses, which are very good thanks to our friends, the “reset button” Russians. Iran now has very good AA capability, and might be able to shoot down Israeli F-15′s or F-16′s. To destroy Iranian air defenses prior to any bombing raids would probably require long-range missile capability of the kind Israel does not possess – the kind of thing we might do with missiles launched from the Persian Gulf, for instance.

          “Don’t kid yourself, my friend. It may be a game-changer, the singular event that ends the ‘special relationship’ that has existed since ’67.”

          Some would argue that relationship has already been altered beyond recognition.

          “My guess is that relations wouldn’t mend at least until Obama is out of office. Of course, I could be wrong.”

          That’s an “unbelievably small” price to pay for dealing with Iran’s nukes and perfidious belligerence.

          • Moa

            Yep, losing a fickle ally is better than Iran getting nukes.

            There should be no question Israel has the will and means to strike.

            This speech is all about giving the World a chance to avoid a strike. But the World will jabber and do nothing – exactly as they have been doing for the last 15 years. Our representatives across the globe are useless – I don’t know why they get paid so much of our respective tax monies for doing so little.

        Shatter what US-Israel relations? There is a relationship between an islam0fascist collaborator and Israel? Would that be like the kind of relationship Chamberlain had w/the Sudetenland?

        • wildjew

          Your question needs to be posed to Chezwick who wrote above: “An attack (by Israel) in opposition to America’s stated goals could and probably would shatter US-Israeli relations.”

          I’m with you.

          • Fritz

            Of course there is a third route, assassination. If enough of the Ayatollahs, and their inner circle should meet their maker unexpectedly, followed by a strategic strikes against revolutionary guard installations, how long would the regime last after that? You don’t need to destroy the nuclear materials or equipment if you destroy the people making them do you?

          • wildjew

            People write about the sham elections in Iran. Then there are the seas of Iranians in the streets shouting ‘death to America, death to Israel’. I wonder what percentage of Iranians do not support their leaders’ dream of annihilating Israel. After the second world war, Germans interviewed said they never supported Hitler but William Shirer, the American correspondent stationed in Germany before and during the war, wrote something entirely different; that in Adolf Hit ler Germans found their savior.

          • defcon 4

            Good point. Millions of Germans had to die to stop Nazi Germany.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “That would be ideal.”

            And a lot harder to pull off. I suppose what makes sense would be a simultaneous assassination wave in concert with the best air attack Israel can muster.

            You have to move fast once it starts and assassinations would take a while but provoke an almost immediate reaction from Iran. So it would be useful only as a supplemental tactic.

          • Moa

            Once of Iran’s cyberwar leaders was assassinated today. The run up has begun.

        • Chezwick

          Israel is still getting close to $3 billion in annual aid from the USA, (not to mention the technology sharing). Obama has yet to pull the plug, but an Israeli strike on Iran might just give him the pretext to do so.

          • defcon 4

            Has Israel actually received that $3 billion in aid? Or is the check in the mail?

          • Moa

            Usually it is a credit that allows Israelis to buy US gear. This means that US taxpayers foot a bill (not much compared to the rest of Washington’s wastage, but still taxpayer funded), that gives the money to US defense firms and the Israelis get the gear. A nifty little scheme by the US.

          If some elite Israeli soldiers cried at the end of the second Lebanon war, it was for their comrades who died needlessly in battle, because a corrupt prime minister (Ehud Olmert) was responsible for forcibly uprooting thousands of Jews from Gush Katif, Gaza the year before (August 2005) he surrendered in Lebanon July-August 2006).

    • Fritz

      With friends like B.O who needs enemies? But who says that the stated goals of “fearless leader” are those of America? What goals? First he wanted to bomb Syria after a gas attack, in spite of the fact that it was not the first time chemical weapons were used in that civil war, then he backed down after Putin made a fool out of him. Isreal is looking at it survival, it can survive a falling out with a temporary U.S administration with just over three years left on the clock, it cannot survive Iran getting the bomb and then attacking Israel with it.
      The Hezbos are involved in Syria war, and becoming more and more preoccupied with it by the day. Among the Islamists, it’s the other factions, the suni ones, who are public enemy number #1, in this case El Qaeda, and other Muslim Brotherhood offshoots. Those 40,000 rockets, and the men to fire them, are going to Syria, that’s the new holly war.

      • defcon 4

        Iran is the country that has threatened Israel directly and repeatedly and unfortunately may have the nukes to do it.

      • Moa

        Yep, the Sunnis and Shia recently released statements that their Muslim apostate opponents were bigger threats than the Great and Little Satans (US and Israel).

        If Hezbollah fights Israel it will be hurt very badly, and Assad with fall. I’m guessing the Iranians will not want Assad to fall. They can always try to get nukes again – but to lose Syria would cut Lebanon off from them too.

        • defcon 4

          Muslimes flip-flop and lie constantly, just because some insane imam, mad mullah or asinine ayatollah says the Sunnis (or Shia) are the great enemies of islam this week doesn’t mean he won’t go back to the usual Great Satan, Little Satan meme next week and it’s not like the press in any islam0fascist state is going to call him out on it either.

        • truebearing

          You may be right, at least for now, but despite the internecine hate between Muslim sects, their ultimate hatred is for Israel, their penultimate hatred is for the US, leaving their hatred of each other in third place.

    • truebearing

      Israel doesn’t have the luxury of worrying about its relationship with our Muslim-In-Chief. They face the exigencies of an oft promised nuclear genocide at the hands of the Iranians. They now know Obama is solidly in the Muslim camp and can’t be trusted. They also know things none of us, including Obama, know because they have the best intelligence in the world. If Israel can’t count on our help, and they can’t, they have no choice but to go it alone, but they may well have options we aren’t aware of…..at least I hope we aren’t aware of all of their options. That would mean Iran is aware too.

      Maybe Israel is planning an inside job that doesn’t require jets and refueling. They have been very resourceful in the past. Let’s hope they have successfully smuggled tactical nukes into every Iranian facility. I love the smell of mushrooms in the morning….

  • wildjew

    D. Hornik wrote: “Tough and resolute” are words no one would have applied to Obama’s foreign policy even before the Syrian debacle…”

    Why is it that Obama is feckless when it comes to facing off with Islamic savages and other totalitarians but tough and resolute when facing off with his domestic conservative enemies?

    Hornik: “Netanyahu did not raise the possibility of a U.S. strike on Iran. Whether or not he believes such a possibility exists is a function of his hours of talks with Obama and the impression he derives from them.”

    “…Unimaginable!”

    • objectivefactsmatter

      “Why is it that Obama is feckless when it comes to facing off with Islamic savages and other totalitarians but tough and resolute when facing off with his domestic conservative enemies?”

      1) Because we’re his only true enemies
      2) He knows in the end we’re not actually threatening to him except in refuting his unhinged ideologies. The others are the opposite. They threaten American values and assets materially but do so with subtlety, giving plenty of political cover for all parties to get what they want, except of course those that value the US constitution and the true values that flow from it.

  • Lanna

    Sobering speech by Netanyahu. “A nuclear armed Iran would be like 50 North Koreas.” The world will one day find out what Iran has in store once they have enriched Uranium and Plutonium if something isn’t done. Rouhani is a smooth operator, much more polished in his deceptive rhetoric than Ahmadinejad, but far more dangerous…as Netanyahu said, ” A Wolf in sheeps clothing.”

  • http://www.clarespark.com/ Clare Spark

    The big takeaway acknowledged that Israel stands alone. It has always been thus, notwithstanding talk of the allied America. See http://clarespark.com/2009/09/11/oil-politics-and-obamas-view-of-israeli-history/. “Oil politics and Obama’s view of Israeli history.”

    • TheOrdinaryMan

      I agree with you that American interest in Israel’s security is largely NOT based on morality. If it was, there wouldn’t have been the USS Liberty incident in the 1967 six-day war. However, while oil did play something of a role in American involvement in the region; the strategic location of the Suez canal was more important. America’s role in supporting Zionism and Israel has, since the 19th century, been ambivalent. And Traficant is well-known for his anti-Israel and anti-Semitic views.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “If it was, there wouldn’t have been the USS Liberty incident in the 1967 six-day war.”

        Johnson wanted to have his cake even after eating it. Not always possible even for POTUS. It’s still hard for me to imagine what his precise rationale was…but I think he must have been one of the bigger loons to occupy the office.

        But wait, he was white so conservatives shouldn’t mind him, according to the left.

        “America’s role in supporting Zionism and Israel has, since the 19th century, been ambivalent.”

        If you want to argue against supporting Israel, that’s anyone’s right. Expecting righteous people not to care about homicidal maniacs and their big fat lies is another matter entirely.

        • TheOrdinaryMan

          I’m not arguing against supporting Israel. There were American consuls in Jerusalem at one time. One or two had problems with Zionism…and with Jews. As for LBJ, he caused the USS Liberty incident, by allowing the ship to give info on Israeli troop movements to the Egyptians.
          My source is “The Secret War against the Jews,” by John Loftus and Mark Aarons. A great…but terrible book.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “I’m not arguing against supporting Israel.”

            I’m aware of that. I was just stating for the record.

            I really meant, “If one wants to argue against supporting Israel, that’s anyone’s right.”

    Bibi can say all the right things, appear to be w/Obama, etc..but ultimately, he is alone, no one can fool themselves the U.S will be there when they get into trouble. Israel is alone, does he have the capacity to wage a “surgical” hit, not to implode the regional economy, make the operation effective and not drive Obama up the wall? Within his own “Party” a collection of disreputable clowns he is alone, all the second hand arrogant and ignorant Herut – Likoud are angling for the leadership position hope Bibi will trip on a banana just for the sake that one of them will be able to replace him, this is no formula for a strong position to do a regional confrontation, all that he got, are words…not much else…Israel can only hope to dodge the wrath of the Mullahs and wait for another time when perhaps they have an opportunity to inflict some pain, but as it stands now-Bibi, you are on your own with Sarahle, and she is not the best thing to be with at any given day.

  • DontMessWithAmerica

    It was an excellent speech. It could have been a bit condensed but he said what needed to be said. The New York Times hit a new low in their coverage of the speech by scouring the world of academe for an authority to piddle on Netanyahu and that speech. They didn’t want the article to sound like a yellow journal editorial. They found an adjunct professor from Columbia. I wasn’t certain of the meaning of “adjunct” so I looked it up. It means: “Something added to another thing but not essential to it – or a person associated with lesser status, rank, authority, etc., in some duty or service.” That was about right. The professor’s family name was “Sick.” I kid you not. A very appropriate name for him and the Times. Let’s hope Obama doesn’t screw up this time again and lift a sanction or two – in which case Israel won’t have to deal with Iran militarily. But the kid and the warrior in me would really like to see the IAF do a big number on them. They really need it.

    Americans have to wake up to the jewish threat and kick Israel, that parsite, to the curb. Iran hasn’t started a war in hundrds of years, and there’s NO reason why the US can’t make peace with them. Israel is the biggest threat in that region, and once it’s gone, things will settle down and the US won’t have to worry about terrorism the way it does now. No more jewish wars for money and power!

      • FrontPgSubscr

        Not to completely ‘whitewash’ one side over the other,
        the Israeli government is not absolutely devoid of cor-
        ruption and graft either. The population is largely secular,
        which means the government, like the people, is also
        largely secular. This is NOT a “theocracy”. In a secular
        world, a “theocracy” (government controlled by religious
        belief) tends to be horrific in nature. Islamic republics
        are as close to that “ideal” as those who are in control
        can make them. Lord Acton: “Power corrupts and absolute
        power corrupts absolutely”. In a secular government,
        there is no unchecked, or absolute, power wielded by
        some single entity. There is a degree to which, by coop-
        erating to reach goals and accomplish important object-
        ives, a population benefits from those results, and
        unbridled ambition and lusts are, thus, kept in check.

    Potus

    It
    means Obama had Tel Aviv prior consent to court his swain Rouhani; American

    to see GCC Thugocracies faces after Obama christened Khamenei as new partner. To

    Steny Hoyer to apply pressure to continue harsh sanctions against Iran.

    ain’t use the Toilet without his masters’ permission in Tel Aviv. Khamenei is

    Ahmadinejad
    fooled the whole world to drive DC religiously to arm Israel to teeth.
    Ahmadinejad is missed by Stateless Urban-Rejects that steal and settle in the Holy

    billions of dollars worth of arms, weapons & equipment residues UHAULED
    from 88 US closed Bases in Iraq for free to Israel. Thanks to Ahmadinejad. He’s
    been good ally to Israel.

    Don’t
    you ever forget that Iran was the first country in the world recognized State
    of Israel before USA & UK 66 years ago? Recall that amidst mutual threats
    in 1980’s, Israel quietly sold Iran $5 Billion of US Arms. That’s why Iran gets

    religious edict that Iran regime ruled out nuclear weapons. Its Taqiyah alias
    art of deception and treason. The last Fatwa alas Taqiyah were issued by Sistani
    for Iraqi Shiite soldiers to drop their weapon and open your women legs for US
    Troops. Donald Rumsfeld paid Sistani $200M for that Fatwa.

      “CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller [twitted] outta Bradley’s Room that Bibi spent 4 hours counseling Potus on Iran nukes. Keep the Iran sanctions. Attaboy. Obama used Brazilian wax to shave his legs for his sweetheart, he might get lucky and pose nude for a Mugshot with Bibi. He needs it to save his tailgate if OBAMACARE renamed BOEHNERCARE and the Liberal Hippies & Black’s Liposuction is omitted from the Bill.”

      Reads like a parody, but we sense you’re not joking.

        I’m surprised he didn’t liberally throw the words Zionist and Jew in his tirade, but at least he referenced them indirectly. I’d rate his tirade a 3 on the jihadi scale of delusional nonsense.

      Assminijihad is a “good ally to Israel”? Let me guess. You’re Sunni?

    • Moa

      Iran requires another Green revolution. Then it can join its rightful place as a civilized and ancient nation. I hope the Iranian citizens can throw off their theocratic tyrants and gain individual liberty and Universal Human Rights (including for women).

      Until then, Israel is right to target it.

    Netanyahu is the only Chief of State worthy of the name among all those puppets currently babbling at the UN, the only one deserving to be heard.

  • Simon Timothy

    I pray that Netanyahu means what he says now, unlike his other statements regarding the PA peace talks and proceed in this direction believing in the G_d of Israel and not on Obama or any other country.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      I think that he probably saw the peace talk compromises as a necessary requirement to marshal support for dealing with Iran.

      I think dealing with Iran is the one end he won’t compromise on. I could be wrong, but I can see why he has done what he has. Which doesn’t mean I agree with his decisions either but there you go.

      OTOH, which is worse, dealing with the PA and maintaining the status quo while accepting a nuclear armed iran, or accepting BS compromises in the “game of peace” with the PA while getting political cover for taking out Iranian nukes?

      In my imagination I could find better solutions, but my ideas are not fully tested by reality and he has information that I don’t.

      So we hope and pray.

    The free world now depends on Israel to save it.
    If it ever does, the sell outs in the US government will certainly turn on Israel.
    “How dare the Jews interfere with Obama’s appeasement!”

  • Bob Bartlett

    What a great speech! Why has our news media portrayed Rouhani as a “moderate” and a nice guy seeking peace? Why don’t we realize that according to Bibi that in 3 years Iran could hit us with a nuke. I would trust the words of Benjamin Netanyahu any day over the words of our biased news media.

    • defcon 4

      I can’t even stand watching the enemedia anymore. Their disgusting whitewashing of islam0nazism is too much to bear. They’ve actually driven me to watching CBN, because it’s the only place I can hear the truth about Israel and the ugly truth about Islam (not necessarily in that order).

      • Bob Bartlett

        I actually watch Shalom T.V. It’s only 5 minutes a week but I get a better understanding of the world news. Foreign news is difficult to get. Our government praised the Arab Spring but look at the disaster of that. People are being slaughtered and tortured. Compare our waterboarding to what’s happening in the world and you will find there is no comparision.

  • glennd1

    Let them do it then. Just don’t tell me that the U.S. needs to back up Israel. I say let the Zionists and Muslims fight each other to the death in the Negev. Any Jew who just wants to be safe should emigrate to the U.S. – the only places Jews are really safe is in the U.S.

    The U.S. really just needs a winner in the mideast – I could care less who it is. Any moral person should anti-Zionist and anti-Islamist. And if you support either the Zionists or the Islamists you are an immoral lowlife anyway.

    • defcon 4

      Yeah, there’s no antisemitism in the USA. Cough.

      • glennd1

        Are you literally going to try and assert Jews aren’t safe in the U.S.? Because that’s absurd. All societies have some bigotry – the U.S. is no exception. But actual violence against Jews? Rare. Please, STFU now, thanks.

    Obama is and enemy of Israel and most of the American people. What is
    the point of worrying about Obama, he is not America and the people
    mostly support Israel and what ever action they take against the Islamic
    scourge will benefit the World now and in the future. Obama faces the
    wrath of Americans for his depredations and the backlash against this
    odious faker is moving ahead………………….William

      You are a lowlife. I hope you’re in Iran when Israel bombs it with enough fire power to turn that terrorist producing sewer into glass.

      • brutus

        obama gave him the ok last year,when his chief of staff made a public statement declaring “america will not be complicit” in any attack, netanyahu was silent for two days ,cowering in a corner because his true cowardice was exposed,then reverted back to the old “america is more capable than israel” line. listen clear treasonous israel firster american jews……NO MORE WARS FOR JEWISH INTERESTS…………NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!! THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

        • Hass

          WTF is wrong with you?

          You sound like you’re happy for a Terrorist State to Nuke an entire country, along with every living thing.

          You’re either a Muslime or an uneducated and extremely depraved individual.

          Personally, I think you’re both.

        • UCSPanther

          Yep. Definitely delusional. Not all delusional people are antisemites, but all antisemites are delusional.

    • UCSPanther

      The numbers don’t back your claim, but all antisemites I know of have varying degrees of delusional thinking.

      Must suck for you that the last greatest enemy of the Jewish race blew his cowardly brains out after leaving Europe in ruins…

  • Danny Caplan

    Frankly, I worry that Netanyahu is not really up to the necessary job of going against the world and taking out those uranium enrichment facilities and whatever else needs to be destroyed in Iran, in order to prevent another holocaust against the Jews (God forbid). This is the same man, after all, who allowed himself to succumb to pressure from Obama and PeaceNow and release thousands of Arab murderers from prison. Yes, the speech he gave was encouraging, however all of his speeches are encouraging. If Israel had a real strong Right Wing leader, a Kahanist, it would have been done already. On the other hand, if a Left wing leader like Tzipi Livni comes to power, then for sure nothing will be done, and that could lead to a catastrophe. Those who are the most vocal about Israeli appeasement (like PeaceNow) are very powerful and hold a lot of sway. Let’s pray that Israel acts in its own interest for once and put an end to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. At the moment, I’m pessimistic.

        I heard it’s a National Sport in Afghanistan too.

        Come to think of it’s kind of like the rest of the Muslime countries, they’re all full on with their depravity of sexualising children.

        Pmp Pedo Mo would be proud.
