In Israel, Romney talks Iran, angers Palestinians

White House hopeful Mitt Romney held top-level talks in Israel over Iran's nuclear ambitions but quickly drew fire from the Palestinians for endorsing Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state.

"We must lead the effort to prevent Iran from building and possessing nuclear weapons capability," the Republican challenger said in a speech given on a rooftop overlooking Jerusalem's Old City in which he laid out key foreign policy issues facing Israel.

"We should employ any and all measures to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear course," he said, expressing hope that diplomatic and economic measures would help achieve this aim, but adding that "in final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded."

"We recognise Israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for America to stand with you," said Romney, the Republican challenger who will face off against President Barack Obama in November's US election.

Israel, which is widely believed to have the Middle East's only, albeit undeclared, nuclear arsenal, has warned that a military option cannot be ruled out to prevent Iran from developing atomic weapons capability. Tehran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes only.

According to Israeli public radio, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Romney it was important to have "a strong and credible military threat" because sanctions and diplomacy "so far have not set back the Iranian programme by one iota."

Posting mainly for the issue that continues to trouble the world: Jerusalem. Just as prophesied; the burdensome stone for all nations (zechariah 12:1-3).

Notice also the comment by the Pali:

"They they harm **peace, security** and stability," Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat told AFP.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Thessalonians%205:1-4&version=ESV;KJV

1 Thessalonians 5:1-4

English Standard Version (ESV) The Day of the Lord

5 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is **peace and security**,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.

Hell, you could anger “Palestinians” by just waving at them.

If he angered them, I like it. Now if he could just get their heads to explode.

Yeah that was my first thought when I clicked on the link from Drudge.

What DOESN’T anger the Palestinians?

As near as I can tell, the only joy they ever seemed to express was the terrorist jihad islamic murders of nearly 3,000 Americans, etc. on 9/11/2001.

Made up people. Made up country. Neighboring Arab countries refuse to assimilate their brothers.

The mere existence Israel angers the palestinians.
The fact that Jews walk alive on this world angers the Palestinians.

It’s tough to take seriously a group of people who tolerate those among their group who try to destroy innocent men women and children.

The concept, “Oh you’ve really done it now.” fails to mean anything at all other than that the Pali saying it is a world-class liar.

You can’t negotiate with a people who operate this way. Therefore you ignore them and go on about your life.

Go Israel. And Mitt, I appreciate your take on Jerusalem.

If I recall correctly...their fellow koranimals flying planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon didn't anger them at all. In fact they celebrated with great pride and joy on 9/11. I'll always remember the video of the cheering and dancing in the streets, people giving away candy to celebrate. The Israelis can use the "Palestinians" to fill potholes for all I care.

I definitely was not pro-Romney but I definitely want Obama and his whole corrupt cabinet of Chicago thugs out of our White House.

Barry acts like a hostile muslim towards Israel.

Just sayin’

Bibi looks happier in the top picture. Looks like he’s about to pat Romney’s clasped hand.

Very much so.

Here is the headline from Monday's Haaretz:

In Jerusalem speech, it was Romney's voice but Netanyahu's words

Netanyahu embraces Romney as no Israeli prime minister has ever before embraced a candidate running against an incumbent U.S. president.

So typical of your posts. If Mitt says the wrong thing, he’s evil. If he says the right thing, he’s lying. Give it up Obamite. Romney knocked it out of the park in Israel.

"Why should I vote for Bishop Romney when he hates me because I am a Christian"

First of all, it takes about 15 seconds to learn a little it of HTML. Some very nice people have already done most of the work for you.

If you are so concerned that someone is against you because you consider yourself a Christian, then with a comment like that we would rightly assume you are a member of Rev. Wright's wonderful "Christian" church, or a reasonable facsimile thereof. Have a happy life in your delusional bliss.

Salon, the Christian Science Monitor, AP, MSNBC, DailyKos, and HuffPo are identical in that all are regurgitating White House talking points and shilling for the Obama campaign. Thanks F15Eagle.
