Obama to Bibi: No Surprises On Iran

When Bibi Meets Obama by Dry Bones


Obama to Bibi: No surprises on Iran

American Thinker

Rick Moran

It may be indicative just how low US-Israel relations have sunk that Barack Obama is warning Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu not to make any military moves against Iran without telling him.

Aluf Benn of Haaretz reports:

"Barack Obama has sent a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding that Israel not surprise the U.S. with an Israeli military operation against Iran. The message was conveyed by a senior American official who met in Israel with Netanyahu, ministers and other senior officials. Earlier, Netanyahu's envoy visited Washington and met with National Security Adviser James Jones and with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and discussed the dialogue Obama has initiated with Tehran.
The message from the American envoy to the prime minister reveals U.S. concern that Israel could lose patience and act against Iran. It is important to the Americans that they not be caught off guard and find themselves facing facts on the ground at the last minute.
Obama did not wait for his White House meeting with Netanyahu, scheduled for next Monday, to deliver his message, but rather sent it ahead of time with his envoy."

The likelihood of an Israeli strike without US knowledge just became a dead certainty.

No doubt if the Israelis informed the Obama White House in advance, news of the attack would leak. And Netanyahu must have figured out by now that Obama is more concerned with pursuing his "Grand Bargain" with Iran that with the security of Israel.

What's worrisome about this is that it calls into question just what steps an Obama administration would take to "punish" Israel if they attacked Iran. Given the hostility towards the Jewish state exhibited by several of his advisors, nothing would be unthinkable as a reaction by Obama.

Wouldn't you love to be in that room next week when Bibi sits down with our naive president?


Obama puts Israel at risk

As Obama and Netanyahu prepare to meet, US-Israeli relations are sinking toward an all-time low.

The White House seems to be intentionally slighting Israel in advance of the summit, even as it raises the stakes. Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, and National Security Adviser Gen. James Jones appear to have linked US willingness to stop Iran’s nuclear program to receiving Israeli concessions regarding the two-state solution.

This is both immoral and counterproductive. Immoral, because it is dangerously close to blackmailing the Jewish state with a nuclear holocaust, planned by the Holocaust denier-in-chief, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Counterproductive, because potential Iranian nukes would threaten American interests and allies in the Middle East, including the oil-producing Gulf states.

The Obama administration is advocating steps that would jeopardize Israeli security.

There is concern that it might approve an Arab-backed plan that could compel Israel to withdraw to indefensible 1967 cease-fire lines. The late, dovish Israeli foreign minister, Abba Eban, called these lines “the borders of Auschwitz.”


Wild Thing's comment.........

If Netanyahu even wanted to tell Obama, Israel better not trust Obama nor Obama’s Administration. Obama would somehow make sure Iran found out ahead of time. Our moronic administration shouldn’t be trusted with anything.

Unfortunately, US intelligance will have a head’s up about an hour before the jets take off. On the bright side, it’ll take Obama hours to get his act together to try and figure out what to do next. Just as he held off being leader a good president during the Capatins hostage we witnessed for days , 5 days it went on.

God bless the IDF, the Mossad , BiBi and our troops as they know what these terrorists are about unlike the jerk in our Oval Office that favors the enemy.

This is going to all get very interesting - very rapidly - hoping that Bibi stands up to Obama, and informs him that Israel will do whatever is in their collective best interests .

At the Battle of the Bulge, Gen McAuliffe gave the Germans a four letter reply...”NUTS” I suspect that Bibi will also give Obama a four letter reply...”PUTZ”

Yeah, he is a putz. He has no right to tell Bibi what to do with his own UN given nation! Bibi can do as he pleases. He does not want Iran to get a bomb and if they do, he will take it out. One Nation cannot simply "dictate" terms to another, but Mahmoud and his Iranian goonies do need to be taught a lesson and it probably would be best to destroy not only the nuclear facilities but their only oil/gas refinery as well. Set them back about a thousand years. But then Russia and China would come after them and we'd have to defend them. It would be a mess, wouldn't it? Russia and China need to stay the hell out of this situation.
Obama is on the side of Satan. He is pure evil and if I were Bibi, I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit!

First, I believe Obama is a muslim. Secondly, I think Obama would be happy if Israel was destroyed. Finally, I believe that Obama is in way over his ability. He is making the world much more dangerous as he pursues his Marxist/socialist agenda and courts the dictators and thugs of the world.

Bomb Iran!! Quit kissing their asses, 30 years ago they picked this fight, 30 years of bowing to the muzzies like Obama has done openly will only get more killed on both sides. Now is not the time to abandon Israel nor dictate the terms of 'their sovereignty'. The muzzy world has grown ever more and increasingly aggressive and belligerent due to the West's acquiescence to the dictums of the Communist and Islamist's in charge of the UN and in the halls of Congress.
It's better to have the enemy at your feet than at your throat, but all those pacifists never realize that fact until their throats are being slit by the devil worshipping satanists.

Tomorrow BiBi will meet Bozo.

How much does BiBi trust obama not to inform Iran that an attack, from Israel, is imminent. I don't believe Netanyahu trusts obama at all. The Israeli Ambassador Geroge Mitchell can't be trusted either.

Obama and Emanuel are stuck on a two state solution ? This is pie in the sky rhetoric because it aint gonna happen. It is not about a two state solution and never has been about a home for the Palestinians. The Palestinians have already talked about getting Jerusalem and destroying the Holiest of places of the Jews. Obama is already financing Hamas and the Palestinians.

It they try to back the Jews into a coner they will come out swinging and Iran will be the first to be hit.

They had better not screw with Natanyahu he won't be pushed into that corner.

Only one thing matters when dealing with Israel and that goes back to Genesis 12:1-3

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great ; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed .

Lynn, oh that would be great "Set them
back about a thousand years"

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 17, 2009 06:35 PM

Tom, I think your right.Obama has made no
real attempt at being a friend to Israel.
At least not to the Jews.

Jack, well said!!! Ditto that!

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 17, 2009 06:56 PM

Mark, thanks for that, I hope they
do a lot of coverage too of BiBi's
being with Obama. Obama better show
him respect.
