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!

Jews – Come Home To Israel!

The people of Denmark live in the hearts and souls of those who are Jewish. Denmark was the country that made certain every Jew was able to escape from the horror of Nazism. From the King of Denmark down to the ordinary Dane there was a plan to smuggle Jews out of the country to the safety of Sweden. A few days ago A Jew was murdered by an Islamist terrorist. So, what is the response to this tragedy by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu-“we say to the Jews, to our brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.” He wants Danish Jews to leave Denmark and come to a land in which violence against Muslims and Jews is the norm. These comments by Netanyahu are insulting to the people of Denmark who risked their lives to save Jews!

Danish Ambassador to Israel, Jesper Vahr spoke the truth: “Our prime minister said an attack on the Jewish community is an attack on all Danish citizens.” As a Jew, I am shocked that Bibi Netanyahu would insult people who SAVED JEWS when no one else would!!

Bibi, The Great Leader

I understand that many Americans and Israelis actually believe that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is some sort of great leader. When he assumed power in Israel, the following was present:

1. Turkey was a close ally of Israel and their troops were engaged in joint military exercises.

2. Egypt and Israel had close relations.

3. Jordan and Israel had good relations.

4. Israel still enjoyed the respect of most European nations.

5. American diplomats worked with Israel in hope of securing peace in the Middle East.

After several years of Bibi in charge of Israel this is the reality:

1. Turkey has become an enemy of Israel and has yet to get over the murder of Turkish citizens who were bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza. I will not get into the humiliation of Turkish diplomats by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

2. Relations with Egypt are formal, not close.

3. Jordanians do not seek close relations with Israel.

4. It is impossible to name a single European nation that supports the foreign policy of Israel.

5. There are NO meaningful relations with the United States of America.

Oh, Israel has good relations with the Republican party of America.

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!

Bibi Angers Democrats

Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont has traditionally been a strong supporter of Israel and one who deeply seeks peace in the world. It requires real stupidly on the part of any Israel political leader to get Leahy angry about Israel. Well, Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has accomplished his mission to anger many American political leaders who ordinarily side with Israel. Following is Leahy’s comments about the proposed Netanyahu speech to Congress. “The unfortunate way that House leaders have unilaterally arranged this, and then heavily politicized it, has demolished the potential constructive value of this Joint Meeting. They have organized a tawdry and high handed stunt that has embarrassed not only Israel, but Congress itself. It has long been an unwritten rule and practice through the decades that when it comes to American foreign policy, we speak and act thoughtfully with one voice, when we can, and with the national interests of the United States as our uppermost consideration.”

As an American Jew the national interest of the United States of America supersedes the national interests of any other nation. I took an oath to defend the American Constitution when entering the US Army, not the constitution of Israel. I believe in defending the national interests of the United States I also aid the survival of Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu is NOT my leader. Hew is an incompetent, stupid, arrogant man whose policies damage the national interest of Israel!

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!

On War Crimes

The Founders of the state of Israel were men and women who had been profoundly impacted by the Holocaust and sought to create a society that would be a shining example of justice and humanity for all. Their decisions were made within a moral context. Yes, during the fight for Israel’s independence there were some examples of war crimes, those were days when it was doubtful if the nation would ever come into reality. But, the overall belief of Israel leaders was that Israel must become a democratic society which respected human rights. Now, Israel is led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who continues to display a sense of anger and fear. The killing of 1,483 civilians in the fight against terrorism can not be ignored by any democratic society. The UN has established a commission to investigate what happened and is ready to identify both Israelis and Muslims as the ones responsible for the deaths of innocent people.

Bibi is convinced that the UN and the world is simply, anti-Israel. He described the commission as an “anti-Israel body” and charged that its head, William Schabas demonstrated “clear and documented bias against Israel.” Frankly, anyone appointed to such a commission is, by definition, anti Israel. The state of Israel has come a long way from its Founding Fathers and Mothers.

Bibi Throws Down The Gauntlet To One And All

In one sense, Israel remains among the few democratic societies in the Middle East, in another sense, Israel leaders continue to behave like every Muslim fanatic in the region. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes that each and every event must elicit angry words and threats because the only thing that Muslims understand is the sword and planes of destruction. After a Hezbollah attack that cost the lives of two Israel soldiers, Bibi has been engaged in non stop threats. “We have proven that nobody is immune from our intentions to foil attacks against us. Thus we have acted and thus we will continue to act.” Yes, those are powerful words of anger. Yes, those words will be greeted with applause for those in Israel who believe that war is the only path to peace.

The Prime Minister has never used words to present a path towards peace. Is it his assumption that for another seventy years Israel must remain armed and ready for war? Is there never to be an end to this conflict? Perhaps, he is right. Perhaps for the next seventy years Israel remains an armed nation ready for war and war and war?

How about giving peace another shot?
