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