Wars and Rumors of War
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to speak before Congress about the dangers, to Israel and the west, of the looming nuclear deal that President Obama is making with Iran. From recent reports, The White House seems to be making more of an effort to thwart the Prime Minister and his speech before Congress than to battle global Islamic Jihad.
The Obama Administration is considering how to best discredit Prime Minster Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress and AIPAC. Not only that but, Obama’s team have been working tirelessly, both covertly and overtly to undermine and destabilize Netanyahu’s government hoping that a more pliable left leaning government will be put into office.
The Times of Israel headline read: “White House mulling ways to undercut Netanyahu speech – Administration considering media blitz, political snubs as part of its diplomatic war with Jerusalem over PM’s address to Congress”
Researcher and author, Stephen E. Hughes, an ex-US Military, who has written extensively on the Iranian regime, has revealed some explosive information about NIAC, National Iranian American Council and their very close ties within the Obama Administration.
“In 2009 Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “widely considered the de facto lobby for the Islamic Republic Regime in America. He calls America & Israel a Treacherous Alliance, Israel is the reason there is chaos in the Middle East.”
NIAC Runs Full Page NY Times Ad on Netanyahu Visit
Thursday, February 19th, 2015, “the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) is running a full-page ad in the New York Times highlighting John Boehner and Benjamin Netanyahu’s outrageous political stunt that could kill diplomacy with Iran and start a war.”
“The U.S. and its closest allies are on the brink of a historic deal that will both prevent an Iranian bomb and war with Iran, and Congressional hawks are orchestrating political stunts with foreign leaders to try to kill it,” said NIAC President Trita Parsi. “The American people do not want another senseless military adventure and certainly don’t consider Benjamin Netanyahu to be their commander in chief.”
Glick Weighs In
Caroline Glick’s latest Jerusalem Post Article, Column one: Netanyahu’s true electoral rival, she states:
“Today Obama believes that he is in a to-the-death struggle with Netanyahu. If Netanyahu’s speech is a success, Obama’s foreign policy will be indefensible. If Obama is able to delegitimize Netanyahu ahead of his arrival, and bring about his electoral defeat, then with a compliant Israeli government, he will face no obstacles to his plan to appease Iran and blame Islamic terrorism on the West for the remainder of his tenure in office.”
As reported by The Associated Press, The White House might take the unprecedented action of not sending a top official to speak at AIPAC.
Both Vice President Biden and Secretary Kerry will be out of the country when Bibi is scheduled to be in the US, which appear to be deliberate attempts at excuses for not being at Congress for the speech or appearing at AIPAC. Obama himself has already stated that he won’t meet with Netanyahu citing that it is too close to the Israeli elections.
Lies, Damn Lies
Further in this campaign against the Prime Minister of Israel, the US admitted to keeping vital information regarding the Iran deal from Israel.
World Israel News reports: White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters that details of the negotiations with Iran were being kept secret in order to give “negotiators the room and the space to negotiate.”
State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki similarly indicated that Israel is being kept out of the loop in order to ensure that “classified negotiating details stay behind closed doors.” She added, “I think it’s safe to say that not everything you’re hearing from the Israeli government is an accurate reflection of the details of the talks. There’s a selective sharing of information.”
This onslaught against the Prime Minister is cause for alarm given Obama’s poor judgement regarding the dangers of IS and other global Islamic Jihad groups. His sympathy for the Jihadists who murder, behead and rape, as poor, downtrodden rejects of society who need our help and understanding baffles those of sound mind and reason. This penchant for sympathizing with barbarians obviously preclude him from having empathy for Israelis who would be at the mercy of the Mullahs, as well as a strengthened IS and global Islamic Jihad, or he wouldn’t be pressing so hard for Iran to get nuclear weapons. He gets the intel briefings and is well aware of Iran’s terror proxies who operate unbidden throughout the region with Israel as their main target for extinction.
It was also revealed in the Jerusalem Post on Friday February 20, 2015 that the Prime Minister of Israel has refuted a report by the IAEA. “The International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran has refrained from expanding tests of more efficient models of a machine used to refine uranium under a nuclear agreement with six world powers, allaying concerns it might be violating the accord.”
The article goes on: “Netanyahu, however, released a statement insisting that the report indicates Iran continues to be engaged in obfuscation.”
“The IAEA report again notes that Iran is refusing to reveal to the world its preparations for the production of nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said. “Iran insists on hiding this from the international community at a time when the major powers are continuing to try and allow Iran to produce the core of such weapons, enriched uranium. These do not go together.”
President Obama appears to be determined to give Iran hegemony in the region as well as giving them the capacity to get the bomb. Bibi’s speech could very well frustrate the proposed agreement and what Obama sees as his legacy. He is desperate for this deal in order to cover for years of foreign policy failures and switch the players in the region who hold the power. He doesn’t seem to mind doing it at the expense of Israel and other Middle Eastern allies.
