  • Netanyahu on Iran’s Nuclear Threat

    Natanz Nuclear Facility in Iran

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared Sunday on Fox News and made it clear that he sees President Barack Obama as the key actor in international efforts to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program: “There’s only been one time that Iran actually stopped the program and that was when it feared U.S. military action. So when the president says that he is determined to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and that all options are on the table, I think that’s the right statement of policy.”

    Prime Minister Netanyahu has made halting Iran’s nuclear program his highest priority since the moment he took office last year. Although the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations received the bulk of media attention during Netanyahu’s July 6 meeting with President Obama, the Iranian nuclear issue undoubtedly was high on the agenda.

    Netanyahu knows that time is running out on western efforts to halt Iran’s nuclear program through diplomacy and sanctions. If Tehran is not dissuaded from continuing on its present path. then Netanyahu soon must make a decision on whether Israel should take military action to postpone, if not stave off, the emergence of Iranian nuclear capability.

      It seems our president B. Obama is being made in to a puppet by the rogue Zionists state or was he already one. How can he sit face to face with the rogue Zionist state, which has 200+ A-bombs in its disposal and allow them to dictate to us that we should prevent Iran from getting one or Iran should not have nuclear energy? The audacity!!

      He should not have allowed this guy in to the white house in the first place. After all they are not a signatory to the NPT and IAEA has never inspected the Demona nuclear facilities. So, what's up with that Dude? Is tail wagging the dog here? Are our policies made in Telaviv? The Iranians have not threaten us and if they want nuclear energy we should help them with it and put a stop to all this nonsense. Even if they get a nuclear weapon that does not make them the first Islamic state that has one. Pakistan has had nuclear weapons for 20 years and they have it on missiles as well. So, why the rogue Zionist state does not complain about that? The Pakistanis are more Zealot than the Iranians. A Sunni state with large population of Taliban and Al-Quida connection and contacts!! So, can some one explain that?!

      This Iran phobia is nothing but propaganda driven by the Zionists to change the subject from the two state peace treaty and they are embarrassing our country and president to get out of it. They have pegged this peace proposal to the Iran nuclear program to get out of this peace deal.

      Iran is a threat to world peace, and with a Govt that believes in fundamental islam that is more of a concern.

      They await the 12th imam which is the islamic saviour, similar to Jesus Christ, and to bring him into the world a catastrophic event has to take place.

      Either they attack or they are attacked it doesn't matter as they believe their saviour will arise.

      This is the kind of mentality we oppose and we should invade as soon as possible.

      Thats if Obama has the courage which I doubt as he is another muslim in the wrong place at the wrong time
