Did President Barack Hussein Obama Really Threaten to Shoot Down Israeli Jets if IAF Targeted Iranian Nuclear Sites
Please note the below news story is from the Israeli National News; however, with this administration and the treatment of US allies, anything is possible …
There was a time in this country when no one would have ever thought that a US President would ever think of let alone threaten to shoot down Israeli jets that targeted Iranian nuclear sites. In fact, one would have thought that US presidents would have wanted Israel to take care of the problem. That was BBHO, before Before Barack Hussein Obama. The Obama presidency has been one of the most anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic administrations in US history. As Pamela Gellar opines, “He doesn’t even pretend anymore, the Democrats have become the anti-Israel party with the anti-Semite-in-chief.”
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.
“We have to be serious about denying them that right,” he said. “If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a ‘Liberty’ in reverse.’”
Too bad that Obama could not get tough like this with ISIS and terrorism.
