Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel addressed a joint session of Congress on March 3, 2015.  

Prime MinisterHis message was simple and forceful.  The greatest threat to peace in the world is the combination of militant Islam with the technology of nuclear weapons.  Period. 

The Prime Minister puts it in the simplest terms.  Countries of the world worry about their security - Israel worries about their existence.  

His concern is serious for all of us.  There is no reason for a nation state to enrich uranium other than to create a weapon.  There is no connection to legitimate nuclear power programs. If your intent is to stop Iran from gaining a nuclear bomb - then the centrifuge operations much be stopped and dismantled.  Iran has considerable centifuge capacity and they are potentially agreeing to stop using the centrifuge systems - not to remove them.  The potential restrictions will be removed within ten years - and we are right back where we started.  Didn't we learn anything from the North Korean programs?  

Iran should not be permitted to gain nuclear weapons, according to Netanyahu, until they stop exporting terror to neighboring countries, until they stop sponsoring terror around the world and until they stop calling for the annihilation of Israel.  If they want to treated like a normal country - let them act like one.  

Finally, Iran's efforts to create intercontinental ballistic missils continues without ababement.  By the time they can produce a nuclear warhead, they will have a delivery system that will strike the US.  This does doesn't seem to enter into our President's calculus.  

I am sorry.  I do not feel that my interests are being served by Mr Kerry or Mr Obama.  I look forward to 1 year, 7 months and 29 days from now.  I hope we, as a nation, can choose wisely between now and then.  

The President said he had not watched the Prime Minister's speech.  I will post it here for his convenience and yours.  The Prime Minister is an engaging speaker and he is worth listening to.    It is approxomately 42 min.

His speech was excellent and right on point. He was concise and put the pieces together so a clear picture was created. Unfortunately I believe it was only the choir that bother to look at the picture. I believe what the 42 Republican Senators did was far more effective at scuttling a really bad deal. I believe Mr. Netanyahu said the deal as currently being considered pave the way for a nuclear Iran.

Excellent speech...if you like a 'call to arms.' So many of my right-wing friends are ready to go to war with Iran after hearing Netanyahu speak. To me, it's mind-boggling.

As Pat Buchanan wrote:

An Israeli leader told a joint session of Congress that President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is stupid and dangerous and must be rejected. Congress gave him 40 ovations.

Bibi Netanyahu then went home and told the world there will be no Palestinian state, and was re-elected in a smashing victory.

“Perhaps it’s time for Americans, especially those in the White House, to recognize this new reality of Israeli politics,” says The Wall Street Journal. We should restore “Israeli confidence in U.S. support.”

Excuse me? Who is the senior partner here? Who needs whom more? 

Israel is entitled to choose its own leaders, who are entitled to make their own policy. But that goes for us as well.

We are today headed for a collision with Israel as serious as Suez ‘56, and we are about to see what Barack Obama is made of.

The days of self-delusion are over. For was there ever a doubt where Bibi stood? In 1994, he denounced the Oslo Accords in a speech interrupted by chants that Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was a “traitor.”

Did anyone think Bibi, who opposed Ariel Sharon withdrawal of Israeli settlers from Gaza, was going to withdraw tens of thousands of Jewish settlers from Judea and Samaria, share Jerusalem with a Palestinian state, or allow the return of Arab refugees to what Bibi says is the “Jewish state”?

“Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls. Left-wing organizations are busing them out,” said Bibi on his Facebook page in Hebrew, according to a translation by Haaretz. 

That’s the real Bibi. We have clarity now. 

What should Obama do?

Drop the petulance, call and congratulate Bibi on his election and tell him we are proceeding with the Iran deal — if we conclude it accords with our interests. And if he attempts to sabotage or scuttle the deal, he should expect political and economic retaliation. 

Bibi is looking out for Israel first. America needs a president like Ike who will start looking out for America first.
