Barack Obama Refers to Israel Concern Over Iran as ‘Noise’ … And So Does Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
How do the sayings go, birds of a feather flock together and water seeks its own level … Obama and Ahmadinejad liken Israeli concerns over nuclear Iran to “Noise” More Obama foreign policy that America needs to take a real close look at.
Last night during a CBS ’60 Minutes’ interview President Barack Obama did the absolute unthinkable with regards to commenting on Israel who is supposed to be the United States closest ally in the Middle East. Barack Obama described Israel’s concerns over Iranian nukes as “Noise.”
STEVE KROFT: “How much pressure have you been getting from Prime Minister Netanyahu to make up your mind to use military force in Iran?”
PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Well—look, I have conversations with Prime Minister Netanyahu all the time. And I understand and share Prime Minister Netanyahu’s insistence that Iran should not obtain a nuclear weapon, because it would threaten us, it would threaten Israel, and it would threaten the world and kick off a nuclear arms race.”
STEVE KROFT: “You’re saying, you don’t feel any pressure from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the middle of a campaign to try and get you to change your policy and draw a line in the sand? You don’t feel any pressure?”
PRESIDENT OBAMA: “When it comes to our national security decisions—any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out—any noise that’s out there. Now I feel an obligation, not pressure but obligation, to make sure that we’re in close consultation with the Israelis—on these issues. Because it affects them deeply. They’re one of our closest allies in the region. And we’ve got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel’s existence.”
But wait, Obama was not the only one calling it noise. So did Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As reported at the WAPO, Ahmadinejad used the same word to describe Israel in an interview. So this is how we treat an ally like Israel? Where now a US President is sounding like a crazy Islamisofasist like Ahmadinejad?
IGNATIUS: “I want to ask as my first question the one every citizen of the world would like to ask today: What is the chance of a war in Iran that would result from an Israeli attack on your nuclear facilities?”
AHMADINEJAD: “I have spoken about this topic at length, previously. We generally speaking do not take very seriously the issue of the Zionists and the possible dangers emanating from them. Of course they would love to find a way for their own salvation by making a lot of noise and to raise stakes in order to save themselves. But I do not believe they will succeed. Iran is also a very well recognized country and her defensive powers are very clear.”
A question to all Jews in America … why are you voting again for Barack Obama?
