Fmr Netanyahu official: Obama more interested in stopping Israel attack than stopping Iran from getting nukes

Former Chief of Staff to Netanyahu, Naftali Bennett, says that the Obama administration seems more interested in preventing Israel from attacking Iran than in preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Bennett warns that Israel is “nearing the very last moment” and that the only thing that will stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons or stop Israel from attacking Iran is for the United States to create a plausible threat against Iran, something it hasn’t done so far and Iran knows it:

    Nor will the US, under BHO, create a threat to Iran

    “I will side with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” Barack Hussein Obama.

    It it abundantly clear by words, deeds and actions where Obama’s sympathies lie. There is no doubt about this and the Iranians take comfort and encouragement in this. There is no disputing this and all the soothing doubletalk by Pannetta, Clinton and the rest of the regime cannot plausibly deny it.

    Obama has openly spoken behind Americas back to the Russians in his infamous “…will have more flexibility…” slip and there is no doubt that behind the scenes with the Muslim world and Iran in particular that he is able, capable and probably prone towards the same duplicity with regadrs to Iran and it’s ambitions towards Israel.

      For accuracy, the statement he made was this.

      Actual quote from “The Audacity of Hope” [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

      That’s what he actually said, but I do believe he will stand against us in favor of his fellow Muslims.

      Obama’s true religion says it’s OK to lie for the sake of allah.

      • tshtsh

        Really, the things b.o. says “citizenship really means something” as he disenfranchises citizens and their rights in favor of illegal aliens and other criminal elements.

  • StrangernFiction

    And if Israel attacks and we are brought into it, which is likely, we will here John McCain call for all of us to rally around Obama.

    • sjmom

      He can call for whatever he wants, but then my question to the Senator would be:

    • And I’ll say “bite me”, I stand with Israel, not dear leader.

  • BeerPartyPatriot

    Tragically, the October surprise won’t be much of a surprise. Israel will be attacked, likely followed by several attacks on US soil as well. Can’t say we didn’t see it coming with the gutting of our military and purposeful neglect of our borders. If only Romney would be bold enough to invite Allen West as VP, these areas might get the focus they require.

    • sno_warrior

      We need West as ‘Secertary of Defense’ or ‘Secertary of State’. The VP position, IMO, is not where we need him. The VP doesn’t have any power to speak of… but if he were to walk into a room of world leaders as ‘SoS’ or ‘SoD’, then Col. Allen West would have their full attention!

  • sjmom

    I pray Israel does everyone a favor and not only take out the nuke facilities but the regime, including Achmadin………..however you spell his name.

  • 911Infidel

    The closet Muslim in the WH is no friend of Israel. The Mahdi-ists in Tehran like to make exalted claims about their capabilities. Truth is they are still several generations behind the other players in the ME. Yeah they have improved their capabilities, but so has everyone else. In Islam war is deceit. I see bluster and big talk and nothing else.

    • with aid from china and russia, they are coming along just fine. Still behind but still dangerous.

    • kong1967

      I don’t think that will stop Iran from using what they’ve got to hit Jerusalem. Iran will be nearly wiped out, but how bad off will Israel be if they cannot stop all the missiles? I know, prophecy says Israel will always stand victorious, but I don’t rely on prophecy.

      I trust Obama to take Israel’s side as much as I trust not getting eaten by a hungry lion if I’m in his cage. In fact, I think he will try to undermine Israel and not provide any aid.

  • Definition of War in The Devil’s Dictionary, first published in 1906 as The Cynic’s Wordbook:

    WAR, n. A by-product of the arts of peace. The most menacing political condition is a period of international amity. The student of history who has not been taught to expect the unexpected may justly boast himself inaccessible to the light. “In time of peace prepare for war” has a deeper meaning than is commonly discerned; it means, not merely that all things earthly have an end — that change is the one immutable and eternal law — but that the soil of peace is thickly sown with the seeds of war and singularly suited to their germination and growth. It was when Kubla Khan had decreed his “stately pleasure dome” — when, that is to say, there were peace and fat feasting in Xanadu — that he

    heard from afar
    Ancestral voices prophesying war.

    One of the greatest of poets, Coleridge was one of the wisest of men, and it was not for nothing that he read us this parable. Let us have a little less of “hands across the sea,” and a little more of that elemental distrust that is the security of nations. War loves to come like a thief in the night; professions of eternal amity provide the night.

  • From the author: Ambrose Bierce.

    Shows how old it is, this attitude we have to deal with.

    — Let us have a little less of “hands across the sea,” and a little more of that elemental distrust that is the security of nations.–

    Elemental distrust is for our traditional friends and allies, and all the Jewish-based democracies in the world, and “hands across the sea” is for everybody else…

  • Cindy09

    This is very very concerning! We already know what BHO believes in; the politic of appeasement. But it is not working! Where are John McCain and Lindsay Graham? Are they still busy defending the MB?

    • kong1967

      Can you convince yourself 100% that Obama really wants the nukes to be prevented from being built? I can’t say I can. He has sided with the enemy and has been anti-Israel the whole 4 years. He may not be able to say that he hates Israel, but that’s what I see.

      • Cindy09

        He cannot. I would argue that our last hope is that Congress springs into action to avert a catastrophe like an Iranian war but apart from Issa working at demantling Fast and Furious, I cannot sincerely see anyone in Congress – to the exception of Lt. Col. Allen West – saying anything to alert Americans of the imminent danger. I wished there was more doing but at the end of the day, Scripture will prevail and prophecies will be accomplished. It seems like right now all the countries are busy devaluating the dollar to bring in a new currency – again in line with biblical prophecies.

        Here is what the Holy Book tells us about Iran/Elam:

        Jeremiah 49:34,35 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.
        (36) And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.
        (37,38) For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them: And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.
        (39) But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.

    how sad is that , that Naftali Bennett, is right

  • tshtsh

    Fortunately, Netanyahu finds b.o. very transparent. Remember when the obama administration wanted 24 hour notice from Israel. Even if b.o. and company came up with a plausible threat, he would use the 24 hours to undo it.

    • NYGino

      24 hours notice. Israel might as well just tell Iran and skip the middleman.

      • kong1967

        Especially with the big mouth we have in the Oval Office. He has no problem leaking top secret defense and national security information.

        • sno_warrior

          Right. It’s in Israels’ best interest to keep as silent as possible. Don’t give anything to the Obummer slumdogs unless it’s ‘false’ info.

          • kong1967


    • sno_warrior

      Netanyahu isn’t the ONLY ONE who finds Obummer to be very transparent!

      • tshtsh

        LOL, you are so right everyone but fellow leftist, the media and other leemings.

  • kong1967

    “If necessary we’ll do what we have to to protect the entire world…”

    Obama should be completely ashamed of himself, along with the U.N. and all the European nations. The tiny (but powerful) nation of Israel is willing to do what the rest of the world is not….even though the stakes are high for everyone (not just Israel).

    It’s disgusting. I hope they wait until after the elections to attack (if the risk allows) because I am quite certain Obama wants the nuke to be built. He has sided with the enemy, refuses to call Jerusalem the capital, and has undermined Israel every step of the way. I honestly don’t believe Obama wants to stop Iran. Remember, it was Obama’s own adviser that said we should shoot down any Israeli planes en route to Iran.

    Israel will get more support after January 20th.

  • deeme

    Yes He is also more interested in getting four more years then he is in balancing the budget..He is also more interested in setting up staged lunacy for the media to talk about ,instead of the 15 trillion in debt and real unemployment..That’s not enough either he wants more of your “fair share” , to waste…Here are some of the highlights of the last few years…Code Pink and Bill Ayers in the Middle East, Bible Toting Gun Lovers, Removing our Missile Shield in Poland, Trumka and Muslim Brotherhood in the Whitehouse, Fast and Furious, OWS , Sueing ARizona for defending it’s borders, Sueing Texas for Voter I.D., Sandra Fluke and Women’s Health.,Gays in the Military, Gun Control, Everyone who disagrees with me is a racist, Everyone who disagrees with me wants women to die, Solyndra, 32 oz.cokes, nursing.,Your fair share, the greedy wealthy, Kiss ins, The UN having more control of this country then U.S.,Cars that can get 75 miles per hour, Regulating farmer’s children,Regulating Coal out of business, Regulating everyone out of business, advertising for Food Stamps, Nancy said you have to pass it to see what’s in it, Harry said Romney is a tax cheat, nothing about what he was hired to do,Sueing our military from voting while letting illegals get tax refunds free healthcare and vote.,Executive orders , amnesty, Unemployment checks are a job creator, You didn’t build that, GSA,NASA gifted as Muslim Outreach…Bowing to enemies snubbing allies, Obamacare.. Punishing people who are doing their jobs, protecting people who arent.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Good interview. The Lord’s return seems closer than ever before – especially with Russia and China protecting Iran and Syria.

    That being said, Obama is a disgrace. America staved off nuclear war with Russia through deterrence. Obama has shown nothing but encouragement towards Iran… he is a liar, a coward, and a wimp… and Iran knows it.

    • sno_warrior

      Remember that our Lord told us that “there would be wars and rumors of wars,…” but remember what THE sign of the end is: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations and then the end will come.” (Mathew 24:14)

      How many churches of the world are in EVERY country, teaching and preaching the gospel of Christ? I can think of only two! Is your’s one of them?

  • Orangeone

    O’Bambi is aiding Iran in return for the 3 trespasser spies that Iran released. Deal-maker-in-chief.

  • carolt2

    BHO also has Turkey in an uproar today, he had a picture taken talking to the PM of Turkey with a bat in his hand They are very upset.

  • PVG

    Great interview with an adult!

  • Yazz55

    The one who will not acknowledge that Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel will not do anything to upset the Iranians.

  • bobemakk

    I can believe this. Obama, The self proclaimed Messiah is more interested in his “Muslim brotherhood,” than he is protecting Israel, our only close ally in the middle east. Jewish people must wake up in this country and not vote for Obama, he has thrown their country under the bus numerous times.

  • capelady

    Rumsfeld just admitted that sanctions won’t work and that in light of recent comments coming out of Iran, Netanyahu must do whatever is necessary to protect his people – and that he clearly can’t trust the Obama administration with all of the recent leaks of confidential information to benefit his re-election campaign. Rumsfled advised Bibi to hold everything close to his chest and do whatever must be done! Amen and Amen!!! Obama has shown complete disdain for Israel and the well-being of the Jewish people. The only time he talks a good line is when he is campaigning! You have to watch what he does, not what he says. He circumvented Congress to give millions of taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians and the Egyptian Brotherhood without requiring anything from them. His Muslim sympathies are clear despite his rhetoric and he cannot be trusted. God fights for Israel, and it is a good thing, because they can’t depend on America with Obama in the White House!
