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?
According to ABC News, two US hikers Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer have been freed by Iran. As per their lawyer, the two Americans held captive in an Iranian prison for over two years will be set free today. A second Iranian judge has finally signed their release order. Iran had previously sentenced Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer to 8 years in prison as spies.
Attorney Masoud Shafii, the lawyer representing the Americans, said that the only thing now keeping Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal behind bars is the $500,00 bail each, which their lawyer tells ABC News could be processed today.
“The natural path has taken its course. As I had mentioned before, I was waiting for a signature. This has now happened. There was a small problem with the bail. I requested from them to deal with this problem. I asked them to go to the Central Bank to resolve the issue. I hope that this will be resolved today,” Shafii said today.
What a shock that the release comes right before Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is set to speak in NYC at the UN in front of the General Assembly.
UPDATE I: Josh Fattal & Shane Bauer get outta Dodge after freed from prison … American Hikers Leave Iran Following Prison Release.
President Obama Wants to Negotiate with a 9-11 Truther? US Delegates Walk out of Ahmadinejad’s Stating Americans were Behind the 9/11 Terror Attacks
So President Barack Hussein Obama wants to negotiate with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a man who states that America was behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks from radical Islam, really?
How could any fool in the MSM try and analyze the comments of a crazy man?
Yesterday at the UN, the US delegation walked out on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech as he went on with his crazy rant that the United States government was behind the 9-11 radical Islamic terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3000 innocent people. The same man who President Obama wants to have negotiations with over nuclear armaments. The same man who has said he wants to see Israel wiped off the map. Ahmadinejad also suggested that there needs to be an independent commission to examine the attacks. Why do we give these nuts any credibility?
Don’t worry Israel, you are in no immediate danger, you have one year before nuclear annihilation … Great news Israel, Iran won’t have nukes for at least eight more Obama vacations and 60 more rounds of golf.
Oh this is reassuring, Obama Administration tells Israel that Iran won’t have nukes for at least one year. Are we really supposed to take comfort in such a prediction from this Administration? The same one that stated the stimulus plan would keep unemployment at 8% and Obamacare would lower health care costs and reduce the federal deficit. All of which were not true. What are we going to hear next from Obama in the prevention of Iran producing a nuclear bomb under the guise of power, that they have the right to like the Brits are saying?
“Remain calm, all is well …”
Iranian television showed live pictures of Iran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi and his Russian counterpart watching a fuel rod assembly being prepared for insertion into the reactor at Bushehr.
“Despite all the pressures, sanctions and hardships imposed by Western nations, we are now witnessing the start-up of the largest symbol of Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities,” Mr Salehi told a news conference afterwards. He described the plant as “a symbol of Iranian resistance and patience”.
