Obama Isolates Netanyahu as Head of Warmongers



In a speech that is liable to be seen as turning point in U.S.-Israeli relations, president clarified that the two countries’ security interests are not always the same.
Ha’aretz

WASHINGTON – Some 200 people gathered at a plaza named for Saudi King Salman at American University in Washington on Wednesday and waited for U.S. President Barack Obama’s address on the nuclear deal reached last month with Iran. A greater irony would be hard to imagine, unless it were a plaza named for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama, meanwhile, seemed to have adopted at least one unpleasant habit of the prime minister’s, arriving 35 minutes late.

Obama’s speech was detailed, orderly and articulate. For nearly an hour he laid out his doctrine on behalf of the agreement and tried to negate and undermine the arguments of those who oppose it, one by one. He was addressing two main groups: The Democratic members of Congress and their voters in the center and liberal left.

He used some scare tactics, warning against Republican lobbyists and organizations funneling tens of millions of dollars into a campaign against the agreement. At certain stages he reminded one of the video on Election Day is which Netanyahu warned of the Arabs streaming to the polls in buses funded by leftist organizations. But unlike Netanyahu, behind Obama’s rhetoric and exaggeration there was no small grain of truth.

Another demon conjured up by Obama was former President George W. Bush. He portrayed him as having created the Iranian problem when he launched the war against Iraq. When Bush took office, Obama said, Iran didn’t have a single centrifuge; when he left the White House they had thousands.

The most worrisome part of Obama’s address was his reference to the Israeli government’s opposition to the nuclear agreement. What he said is liable to be seen in the not-so-distant future as a real turning point in the strategic relations between Jerusalem and Washington.

Obama marked Netanyahu not as a major ally, but as his greatest political rival. While he noted that he understands Netanyahu’s concerns and believes his intentions are sincere, this expression of empathy was merely an introduction to a sharp attack on the prime minister. At times you could hear Obama’s disdain for Netanyahu, as when he unconsciously imitated the latter’s baritone from his speeches against the nuclear agreement. “It’s a bad deal, we need a better deal,” he said, as he deepened his voice.

Obama isolated Netanyahu, portrayed him and his government as the only ones in the world who oppose the agreement, and positioned him as the head of the warmongering camp that rejects any diplomatic compromise of any kind, under any circumstances. The attempt by Netanyahu to scuttle the nuclear agreement, Obama wanted to say, is a cousin to the campaign conducted by those who supported the war in Iraq in 2003. It’s doubtful there is any group of people more disliked by the American public.

What should disturb the sleep of every Israeli is the fact that Netanyahu’s battle against the nuclear agreement has pushed Obama into a situation in which he must distinguish between the security interests of the United States and those of Israel, and clarify that they are not necessarily the same. “As president of the United States it would be an abrogation of my constitutional duty to act against my best judgment simply because it causes temporary friction with a dear friend and ally,” he said, and thus delivered a clear message: Netanyahu crossed red lines in his battle against the Iran deal, when he grossly intervened in domestic American politics and tried to present himself as someone who knows America’s interests better that the president of the United States.

The wild applause from the audience following that sentence was just a small example of the serious problem Israel finds itself in; the alienation that entire populations in the United States feel for its government’s policies and their feeling that with regard to the nuclear deal with Iran they’re a tail that’s trying to wag the dog.

The consequences of this atmosphere for Israel’s national security are liable to be disastrous. Even if the agreement passes in Congress, all the more so if Netanyahu’s campaign bears fruit and Congress overrides a presidential veto and kills the deal – the residual negativity is liable to cause a serious and dangerous rupture between the liberal public that votes Democratic – which includes most of the Jewish community – and Israel.

    In regards to Iran, German banks are once again making their headway into Iran under the nuclear deal.

    “Iran says it has reached a preliminary agreement with certain German banks to open branches in the country. Valiollah Seif, the governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), has told the media that the agreement was reached during the recent visit to Iran by German Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister of Economic Affairs Sigmar Gabriel.”.

    “This has already triggered a wave of diplomatic visits to Tehran in what many see is meant to prepare the groundwork for the return of foreign companies to Iran in a post-sanctions era.”.

    and ~ ““Iran is a country with both car and oil industries, and a lot of other industrial sectors as well,” said Alrik Danielson, head of Sweden’s SKF, the ball bearings giant. “If all sanctions and obstacles to business disappear, it will naturally be a positive development for us.”

    Iran’s foreign debt is basically at zero and the foreign exchange reserve relatively large, which makes investment possible, said Stefan Karlsson, head of the country risk analysis department at the Swedish Export Credits Guarantee Board (EKN).”.

    I have long thought that the Americans would ditch Israel when it no longer was serving the US military objectives of the USA and those who own this country. That time has come.

    I seriously doubt that when Obama became president he’d thought he’d have to continue continuously with Netanyahu over who will run the United States.

    I meant, “contend continuously”

    He has finally earned that Nobel Peace Prize given to him. After voting for him the first time, I couldn’t stand him soon after that when he turned his back on the promises he made and began war mongering. Now he deserves credit for possibly preventing a war the Jews and their American lackeys want because Iran won’t bow down to Israel and the Jews the way the USA does. There should be no need for the treaty because numerous people, including CIA analysts, heads of the IAEA and weapons inspectors have said Iran has no nuclear weapons program. The treaty is necessary because the Jewish media has forced it on the US gov’t, by claiming Iran has such a program. So now the treaty, which is designed to limit or prevent Iran’s progress in its non-existent nuclear weapons program is meant to shut up the war mongers and prevent a war with Iran. But will it?

    You can be sure the Jews won’t give up. They want to destroy Iran because it supports the defenseless Palestinians and supports the Hezbollah freedom fighters that repel the Jews every time they attack Lebanon. As long as Iran opposes them they will try to force a war against Iran, perhaps with another false flag attack on the USA (911 redux?).

    It’s interesting that while the Jews in the media continue to attack the treaty and you get the impression everyone is opposed to it, many true conservatives, not the neo-con type, even including some white nationalists have praised Obama for this achievement.

    Josef Goebbels on the Jewish media and their lies. As can be seen from the speech, even after Hitler was elected chancellor the Jews didn’t cease and were now threatening the new gov’t.

    I agree Steve. I look at it though as when it no longer serves to corporatist’s objectives. The military seems to be a means to get into another country with the goal of achieving corporate interests.

    I believe it to be coming out of London then and now. Back then it was the Suez Canal, Britain, France, and shipping lanes that dominated the agendas around Israel and the Middle East. Israel / Palestine is of religious importance, but on the global scene of finance & economics within the context of global control, I think London high finance (and the monarchy) are calling the shots.

    Wonder post by Peter again. His comments reveal true understanding of the Jews.
    He has studied Hitler, Goebbels and NS.
    They y identified the cancer, and took it on successfully, until a war was forced onto Germany/Europe.

    This us why they have been demonized since. True NS ,and not the stupid Neo Nut variety was /is not an artificial political ideology but organic truth.
    Obama is representing people deep within the US political establishment /business establishment still with some independence from the Israeli Complex.

    This is not a departure from anything new,but a reignition of some sovereignty against Israel ,which as demonstrated from Eisenhower, JFK, Nixon,Ford, Carter , Reagan, Bush 1, and even Clinton.
    Truman, LBJ, Bush 2 where total stooges, along with the Democrat Party,

    The Eastern GOP establishment was a front for British/Jew interests.
    The rise ofEvangelical Christianity/ Ex War Democrat/ Dixiecrats remade the Republicans into total Jew tools…Donald Trump a bit if a question mark.

    However this us rough, and Obama with be net by a hail of attacks over this.
    I truly be,jeve he has limited power ,as all Presidents do ,as they push up against the Jews.
    Until the Righschikds US Federal Reserve liquidated and Jews purged from the media the fight will be ongoing.
    The US Republic as under threat from this from its inception.
    New Book, Washington’s Circle by David Heider alludes to this,in terms of ,’the bank’.

    Israel impertinence as Jimmy Carter once said, has reached and crossed the red line.
    I am glad Obama realized that another war for Israel is no longer viable, not supportive, not good for the US.

    Thank you Dante.

    One of very few people in this world who is despised more than President OBarnum.

    Warmongering Bibi said he has the right to threaten Iran and all our neighbors every day, but no one has the right to threaten us. Israel has a right to exist, but the Palestinians do not. Israel has a right to nuclear weapons, but nobody else does. Israel has a right to demand money from the US taxpayer, but nobody has a right to demand anything in return! Israel has a right to bribe and tell other governments what they should do, but no government has a right to interfere with Israel! All what we need from you putzes in DC are those ‘vetoes’ at the UN, that regular US aid check, and to kill our enemies for us! That is your job! Anyone who disagrees is just a filthy Jew-hating anti-Semite who wants Hitler to come back and gas Jewish babies!

    People, especially White Christians, need to really GRASP that the Jew worships a WAR GOD.
    JUDAS ISCARIOT is alive and preaching from the pulpit of many American Churches.
    Any “teacher” who diverts Christians into bowing to the Jewish Temple Priests is a JudasGoat “kissing the cheek” of Christ through HIS Flock, for pieces of silver or foul reasons.
    He who blesses Israel Crucifies Christ.
    CHRISTians should welcome any Jew that comes to Jesus.
    CHRISTians cannot support or aid Israel or the Jewish Nation that DENIES the Lamb of God.
    OLD testament / NEW testament
    WAR god / PEACE god
    OLD covenant / NEW covenant
    NEVER FORGIVE or FORGET / FORGIVENESS and LOVE
    “The new is in the old concealed, the old is in the new revealed.”
    The ESSENCE of Judaism is VENGEANCE
    The ESSENCE of CHRISTianity is FORGIVENESS.
    ANTI: a prefix meaning “against,” “opposite of,” “antiparticle of,” used in the formation of compound words (anticline); used freely in combination with elements of any origin (antibody; antifreeze; antiknock;;;; ANTICHRIST).
    “judeo-christian” or “christian-zionism” is an OXYMORON. “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” Matthew 6:24
    Judeo refuses to even ACKNOWLEDGE CHRIST. Judeo refuses to acknowledge Jesus except to INSULT him and HIS teachings in the NEW Testament. They claim Jesus was the bastard child of a Roman soldier and Mary was a Harlot ……. and “christian” preachers CONDONE this?!?
    http://theinternetpost.net/2014/08/08/how-christians-were-hoodwinked-by-the-scofield-bible/

    The LAMB of GOD was the FINAL sacrifice. Rebuilding the Jewish Temple and resuming bloody animal sacrifices repudiates the Crucifixion, the SACRIFICE of Jesus,the NEW Covenant. God chose JESUS CHRIST as His vehicle for world redemption.
    “This is my blood of the covenant….” (Matthew 26:28)
    “This is my blood of the covenant….” (Mark 14:24)
    “This cup is the new covenant in my blood….” (Luke 22:20)
    “This cup is the new covenant in my blood….” (1 Corinthians 11:25)
    The NEW Covenant replaced the OLD broken covenant.
    “No Jew accepts Jesus as the Messiah. When someone makes that faith commitment, they become Christian. It is not possible for someone to be both Christian and Jewish.” “The false gods will be eliminated” — a quote from the Aleinu prayer.
