Bibi Joins Fellow Republicans To Save World!

I assume this week anyone who cares about Israel or the United States of America will be glued to their iPads or television sets in order to see still another Republican inform the world how to get peace in t he world. Bibi Netanyahu is here to further the work of his dad in the cause of ensuring that Republicans once again govern the nation. His father was a professor here in America who also doubled as a fervent Republican. The Israel Ambassador to the United States of America used to double as a paid Republican worker. Anyway, Bibi is here to expose American government attempts to avoid a calamity in the Middle East. Bibi will inform cheering Republicans that the only road to peace in the Middle East is to bomb the hell out of Iran. After all, Bibi is an expert on peace in the Middle East. Since becoming prime minister of Israel:

1. The former close ties between Israel and Turkey have ceased after fifty years of close cooperation.

2. Jordan used to support Israel in many situations and now has ended this support.

3. There is not a single European nation that supports the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu.

So, Americans, cheer Bibi and perhaps we can end any and all good relations with nations in this world.

Bibi Is Upset Because They Will Not Let Him Play

The White House is finally getting bored and tired of rants from the prime minister of Israel who demands that he be part of negotiations with Iran over nuclear weapons. He definitely has proved that if the world will listen to his ideas, there would not be any compromise with Iranian leaders and the only conclusion is to allow American and Israel planes to bomb the hell out of Iran. Josh Ernest, Obama spokesperson said the Israel leader was engaged in a “continual practice of cheery picking specific pieces of information and using them out of context to distort the negotiating position of the United States.” He went on to make clear “there is no question that some of the things that the Israelis have said in characterizing our negotiating position has not been accurate. There is no question about that.”

Harsh words, but accurate words. The last thing these negotiations need is a bull in the china shop whose only goal is to force the world to attack Iran and create mass destruction. The sad part of Bibi’s rants is that if he is allowed to pursue his ideas, thousands of Israelis would die. Benjamin Netanyahu is the worst nightmare for the people of Israel. Barack Obama is the man seeking to protect the state of Israel.

Bibi Continues Bumbling Along

I do not know how the people of Israel will vote in the coming weeks or whether they will continue in office Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but the world increasingly regards this man as one who speaks with incoherence. Of course, I do know that Republicans in America regard him as a sage who knows about peace in the Middle East. Well, look at his record in the Middle East since becoming prime minister:

1. When he assumed office, Turkish and Israeli military conducted joint military exercises. Today, Turkey dislikes Israel and where once this nation was a supporter of Israel, it has become its enemy.

2. Israel and Jordan had close relations. Today, Israel is not welcome in Jordan.

3. The close relationship with Egypt is gone.

Netanyahu continues to make wild statements about how the Five Powers are negotiating with that land. “Just as Iran knows that t he deal is being outlined in the negotiations, it is only natural that Israel also know. The agreement being drafted, why should it be hidden” I believe this is a bad idea.” HUH? The essence of negotiations is that talks must be private. Yes, Bibi, the Iranians know what is being negotiated. Now, if Israel would like to negotiate about its behavior to Palestinians with the EU, I can guarantee Iran will not know what is being discussed!

Iran And Nuclear Weapons

Senator John McCain is one tough dude and he is willing to draw his pistol at any moment in defense of the American way of life. He agrees with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that any and all discussion must be ended with Iran. Bibi and John insist no negotiations and the end result will be????

How about this end result after Iranian negotiations are ended:

1. Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Tehran.

2. President Putin offers to assist Iranians in securing atomic development that leads to atomic weapons.

3. President Putin and China agree to end sanctions against Iran.

4. Oh, Putin was just in Egypt where he offered to build them a nuclear plant.

The Bibi — John end result is this:

1. Israel bombs Iranian nuclear facilities.

2. Thousands of missiles wind up in Israel

3. Israel bombs Moscow to show the Russians no one messes with Israel!

John and Bibi have NO logical plan other than the end of the world!

Make A Nuclear Deal-NOW!

The Israel lobby and its cohorts in the Republican party fear the arrival of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Bibi Netanyahu will soon be in America to assure members of Congress that the worst nightmare in the Middle East would be having any nation possess an atomic bomb. OH, the ONLY nation in the Middle East that currently has atomic weapons is–ISRAEL. The only three nations in the Middle East that refuse to allow inspections by the United Nations are–Israel, Iran and Syria. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has something to offer the Republican party–gobs of money from Sheldon Alderson and Jewish voters who believe any scare story from the Middle East. Iran’s Foreign Minister Javaad Zarif warned the west that failure to work out a nuclear compromise with Iran will doom the Rouhani presidency and bring to power conservatives who WILL develop atomic weapons.

A story from the past unknown to Americans. In 2001 when US troops swept into Afghanistan the Iran reform President, Khatami offered assistance, he shut the border to Taliban soldiers who were fleeing capture and he offered the following deal:

1. Iran would allow UN inspection of nuclear facilities.

2. Iran would cease arming terrorist groups.

3. Iran would recognize the state of Israel.

In return, he wanted an end to sanctions, recognition of his government and trade.

PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH REFUSED THE DEAL!!

Demer Go HOME!

I write as an American, I write as a Jewish American, and I am sick and tired of Israel politicians and AIPAC placing the political needs of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before the foreign policy needs of the people of Israel and the United States of America. Israel Ambassador to the United States, Ron Demer, reached out to Republican leaders in order to assist their efforts to secure Jewish votes in the United States of America. If any other Ambassador has interfered with American politics he would have been declared to be person who best left this nation. A group of Jewish Democrats met in the office of Rep. Steven Israel to tell Demer to quit playing politics. As Israel noted, the nation of “Israel should never be a political football.”

What should be done?

1. The US government should send Demer back to Israel.

2. Democrats should boycott the Netanyahu speech in Congress.

3. The president should make clear to Netanyahu that if he decides to play politics in America there will be consequences. Just remember, Bibi needs the US veto in the UN Security Council!

Bad Guys Acting Like Good Guys

It was many, many years ago back in the 1950s when I first entered the field of education. I was teaching an 8th grade class of Negro and Hispanic boys in a junior high school in Harlem. One day the boys asked me to explain what the heck was happening in the world and this is what I told them:

“During World War II the bad guys were the Germans and Japanese. The good guys were the Americans, the British and the Russians and Chinese. After the war ended, we decided that the bad Germans and Japanese really were the good guys, and the good guys Russians and Chinese were really the bad guys. So now we are friends with the former bad guys who are really good and the good guys are really bad guys. Is that clear?” They gazed at me as though I was stark raving crazy. Today, in Iraq, Iranian planes bombed ISIS. You know the bad Iranians are now working with their former enemies to kill the new bad guys.

Naturally, American authorities and Iranian authorities deny that Iranian planes are working in conjunction with Americans in Iraq to destroy ISIS. Admiral John Kirby wants the world to know: “Nothing has changed about our policy of not working with Iranians.” Oh, in Tehran, authorities deny they are cooperating with the evil nation of America.

Nothing has changed in life. We are all crazy!

So, Who Are The Violent Folk In Israel?

Anyone who has studied the history of the Middle East since the creation of the state of Israel is quite aware that during the past sixty odd years, Arab nations have repeatedly muffed opportunity after opportunity to resolve their conflict with Israel on reasonable terms. Of course, there also have been groups in Israel which have no desire for peace with Palestinians unless their opponents completely accept their ideas. There is no doubt Palestinians have resorted to violence in order to end their conflict with Israel. I regret to inform those supporting the state of Israel, that violence has also been a weapon of that government. Homes of Palestinians have been blown up, campaigns in Gaza resulted in the death of thousands of Palestinians along with the death of dozens of Israelis. Neither side can bask in the glory of always being on the side of peace.

Two Palestinians brutally murdered four rabbis in a synagogue. Of course, twenty years ago a Jew entered a mosque and machined gunned to death over twenty Muslims engaged in the act or prayer. That person today is regarded as a “hero” by some Israelis. When it comes to “violence” each side has a case to be made that their opponents are violent people. The Israel Shin Bet secret service claims there is a plot to murder Avigdor Lieberman. I do not doubt the existence of such a plot. He is a controversial individual and has angered Palestinians by his violent words of anger toward them.

The time has come to cease arguing as to which side is, “violent,” and get down to the issue of how to end VIOLENCE! This would require patience, and lots of compromise on the part of both sides.

The Iranian Solution

The essence of a successful foreign policy compels a nation to do what is in its national interests, not what is necessarily popular with political leaders. At this moment, American foreign policy in the Middle East requires focusing on destruction of terrorist groups which threaten the very basis of Iraq. We all hate dictators such as President Assad of Syria, he is a vicious cruel individual who is responsible for the deaths of over a hundred thousand people. Democrats and Republicans in Congress detest the “evil” Iranian leaders who have threatened the existence of Israel. Ahmmadinejad is no longer in charge of Iran, and the current President Hassan Rouhani is a practical man who wants to end sanctions against his nation. He has never uttered threats about Israel, but he does want his nation to continue with a nuclear program.

According to Rouhani, “the stakes are high. A failure to agree to a nuclear deal” could wind up being another American foreign policy failure. Iran has to be assured that it can have a nuclear program. After all, the only nation with nuclear weapons in the Middle East is Israel. We have no problem with Israel nuclear weapons, but, most Arab nations do have a concern. It is time to support Iranian nuclear development as long as it does not entail nuclear weapons. How about Israel announcing it will destroy SOME of its nuclear bombs?

Iran Is Not The Problem, It Is Part Of The Solution

US Secretary of State John Kerry is arguing that Iran should not be invited to discussions concerning issues in the Middle East. The presence of this nation “would not be appropriate” because according to his reasoning, “Iran has been deeply involved with its forces on the ground in Syria.” How about?

1. The United States had forces on the ground in Afghanistan and Iraq.

2. European Union forces were on the ground in Afghanistan.

3. United Kingdom troops were on the ground in Iraq.

Iran’s presence is important if issues in the Middle East are to be resolved. Iran has close connections with Syria, with Hamas, and the situation in Lebanon. How about bringing together any and all nations in the Middle East who are concerned with creating stability?
