Israel Defence Minister hammers US for being WEAK, says Israel can’t depend on US to stop nuclear Iran



Tough words from Israel’s Defence Minister on the weakness of America, and he’s right:

obamasad

DAILY MAIL – Israel has accused the United States of projecting weakness internationally and said it could not rely on its main ally to take the lead in confronting Iran over its nuclear programme.

His latest comments, confirmed by an Israeli official who was present at a lecture Mr Yaalon delivered at Tel Aviv University yesterday, displayed deep disappointment with U.S. President Barack Obama’s handling of burning world issues.

‘We had thought it would be the United States that would lead the campaign against Iran,’ said Yaalon, who pointed to the Ukraine crisis as an example of Washington ‘showing weakness’. He added: ‘If your image is feebleness, it doesn’t pay in the world. Nobody will replace the United States as global policeman.

‘I hope the United States comes to its senses. If it doesn’t, it will challenge the world order, and the United States is the one that will suffer.’

Mr Yaalon said that although ‘people know Iran cheats’, the United States and other nations chose to negotiate with Tehran on restricting activities they fear are aimed at developing atomic arms.

‘Therefore, on this matter, we have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves,’ Yaalon said, echoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s veiled threats of unilateral military action against Iran if diplomacy fails.

‘Unfortunately, when it comes to negotiating at a Persian bazaar, the Iranians are better,’ said Yaalon, a former armed forces chief and a hawkish member of Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party.

In the Middle East, Yaalon said, he had heard ‘voices of disappointment’ over a lack of U.S. support for Sunni Muslim rebels in the three-year-old conflict in Syria.

And on a recent visit in Asia, he added, he found ‘disappointment about China getting stronger and the U.S. getting weaker’.

Standing for justice, by standing against the injustice of plunder, in no way implies that one regards advancement of the less fortunate as an unworthy cause.

The Israelis see the truth. The only ones who can’t see it are the Obamabots who think Dear Leader is arrayed in robes of purple but can’t see the reality that he’s buck ass naked, parading around the world like a fool.

Obama is a putz. It’s unbelievable how many people, including libertarians, who think this has nothing to do with us. Obama isn’t one of those people, but he is for the opposite side and wants to remove us as an obstacle to Islam.

He’s just not capable. A cool guy cannot affrod to be seen making a mistake. Rather than make a decision, about which he knows nothing, he stand by and looks cool.

He’s a fraud, a phony, a coward, a liar, a blowhard. If he’s also a victim, he’s victim of African American under-achievers syndrome, the same thought process that brought Africa into the 21st century, still barefooted.

Sadly, Israel has assessed the situation correctly! We had better find great candidates and make our votes count…at midterms especially…and then in 2016! We NEED control of Congress to have hope for the future of this country!!! A president who will respect the Constitution would be a bonus in 2016!

Israel should remember it is the American Leadership not the people. I stand with Israel and will always stand with them. I love what Victor Davis Hanson wrote this week about why the left hates, Palin, Rush, Thomas and Israel, it is priceless and so true.

Thanks again, I printed it off last night and had a great read and start on my day.
I haven’t paid all too much attention to DVH’s writings, but enjoyed the article very much, I found his writing style alittle difficult to follow because his style would be something that will take some getting used to. I’m more used to straight head on speech. I tried to see if he has a periodic column, but wasn’t successful. If per chance, would you be so kind to get me a link? Or use the one from above?
Thanks again for your help and your reply.
I ran in to this, this morning, and was glad to see there are some positive lights at the horizon.

Then O’Reilly is just parroting what the rest of us have been saying for weeks. He always adopts the positions of others then acts like they are his own.

All of the Ukraine, Crimea and vanishing airliner news is distracting the lamestream media from Iran, who is taking full advantage of the situation to work on their nukes at full throttle. Seems like only Israel is paying attention to Iran right now.

Good reason to be wary and disappointed. Imagine how we feel. It’s like we were driving the latest, most expensive sports car… it’s faster, prettier, more dependable than any other sports car in the world… And then along comes Obama in 2009 and he puts VERY inferior fuel and oil in the car. Now over time, other cars that were inferior (I don’t mean that arrogantly) are not only catching up but passing us… at an increasingly alarming rate. Our car is smoking, slowing, and running very badly. And Obama keeps putting in inferior fluids and not maintaining the car at all. Trust God and yourselves Israel! God loves you and WILL protect you – He has promised this! You cannot trust America under this current regime… you know that to be true. Our leadership is solely focused on destroying this nation and doesn’t care whatsoever about our allies or… Read more »

Roosevelt’s quote, “Walk softly and carry a big stick” cannot apply to Obama’s regime since he has cut and weakened our military to the point of it being a “small stick”. So all he has left is “walking softly”. Which is good if you want to slow dance, but not good as the Leader of the Free World!

After Putin’s mocking Obama publicly (especially today), only a fool would count on the US under Obama and Israel should have never put any faith in our feckless leader who caved in Syria as he did with Iran.

I hope Bibi still has a red line to act against Iran’s development of nukes. Saudi Arabia is proving to be a better ally to the Jewish state than America now.
