OBAMA COPS A NETANYAHU HAMMERING
It was a defining 40 minutes, and gripping television, when the Israeli Prime Minister received a standing ovation addressing Congress early this morning (our time). Standing ovations are to be expected on these occasions, but no fewer than 20 of them?
Netanyahu came to bury Caesar and he showed the rift between both the Senate and Congress and Obama, who was hiding under a table back at the White House.
It was a brilliant landmark speech that won’t soon be forgotten.
It highlighted how Obama has deliberately set the Middle East on fire. “Deliberately” is a bit harsh you might say? Hmmm, well Obama’s statement that, “America will never be at war with Islam” brings into focus his disastrous foreign policy ambitions and his love affair with Islam itself.
His refusal to confront the ISIS on the ground has created a new vacuum Shia Iran could only have dreamt of. It is now sweeping west, supplanting useless Iraqi troops, combating the ISIS, cementing further its dangerous influence in the region and bringing it closer to the Israeli border with only Jordan as a buffer.
While Netanyahu was delivering his watershed speech to Congress, the US Administration was busily negotiating a deal in Switzerland with Teheran that would see it eventually increasing its 19,000 centrifuges to 190,000 and its uranium enrichment to nuclear grade.
Many Arab nations are dismayed at the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran and an isolated Israel will be forced to “go it alone” in destroying its nuclear capability.
Bloody hell, two more years of this lame duck President’s Executive Orders will see the Middle East, with its myriad terrorist organisations, heading West to join their mates.
