Skip to comments.Obama calls Netanyahu after criticism of Iran nuclear plan
Posted on 11/08/2013 9:07:31 PM PST by Innovative
U.S. President Barack Obama called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday after the Israeli leader delivered a stinging rebuke to Washington over a deal taking shape in talks between Iran and world powers seeking to curb Tehran's nuclear program.
The telephone call marked an apparent bid by Obama to tamp down growing unease over the emerging Iran deal among the United States' Middle East allies, including Saudi Arabia, as well as mounting opposition to the plan on Capitol Hill.
"Any deal that breathes life back into Iran's economy in return for token and superficial moves that put Tehran no further from nuclear breakout ... appears to be a horrific strategic error," said Josh Block, chief executive officer of The Israel Project, a non-partisan, pro-Israel organization.

Because he is a moslem.

EXCERPT:” “The deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal,’’ Mr. Netanyahu said in Tel Aviv after meeting with Mr. Kerry. “Iran isn’t even required to take apart even one centrifuge, but the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran. I urged Secretary Kerry not to rush to signto wait, to reconsider. To get a good deal.’’”
It must be frustrating to Obama that there’s no way he can get the IRS to harass Netanyahu.
I think it’s even worse than that:
Exclusive: Obamas Secret Iran Détente
EXCERPT: “The Obama administration began softening sanctions on Iran after the election of Irans new president in June, months before the current round of nuclear talks in Geneva or the historic phone call between the two leaders in September.”
More than likely the Turd told him, if you like your security, you will be able to keep it.
And we all know what Iran wants to do to Israel.
Wipe it off the face of the earth were the exact words.
Bibi is way too smart to get sucked in by the Obama lies.
And yes, Obama is siding with the Muslims.
He’s desperate for a win. If there is one thing BHO is proud of, it’s being different from GWB, and it would titillate his throbbing liberal girlie bits if he could accomplish something, anything, in fact, via “diplomacy” in Iran when mean ol’ george bush was always invading places (and deposing dictators, but that’s another story)
oh, and it would change the subject, which pretty well sucks for him right now.
Why would he even take the call? There is nothing believable that Obama could ever say.
Just to tell him to “stuff it” mayhap?
BB? Hello? BB?"
I do wish there was HARD evidence proving that. I have been ridiculed many times in polite company.
“Sir, it’s Obama on the phone. No, I know you don’t have anything to say to him. Sir, he’s still on hold, sir. The sooner you do it, the sooner it will be over. Sir!”
Don’t think it’s beyond our moronic leader to threaten the Prime Minister of Israel for criticizing him.
Eventually Israel will come to realize it has much in common with Saudi Arabia. The Saudi royal family is terrified of Iran. Publicly the royals pose as upright Muslims. The use strict Islamic rules to control their population. However privately they lead rather decadent lives especially when abroad. There is always conflict between the Sunni and Shia Muslims. The Saudis are vulnerable to being denounced as unfit guardians of Islam’s most holy sites. They are really fearful of a nuclear armed Iran. Once Iran has nuclear arms it can never be subjected a large scale conventional attack. Conversely it will be free to project its power and destabilize its Sunni enemies. The Saudis for their own reasnos fear a nuclear armed Iran.
I was just speculating base on how Netanyahu has responded in the past. Netanyahu has stated that his whole purpose in life it to protect Israel and that is what he is going to do.
The Oslama being a muslim part....
Is he muslim or not? The prick.....
“Hi, this is Benni...I’m not available to take your call right now, if you want to leave a message, press One now...If this is the President of the United States, please hamg up and try your call again, repeat as often as you wish...”
“Dont think its beyond our moronic leader to threaten the Prime Minister of Israel for criticizing him.”
That would definitely be my guess.
A short study of his history (years at a madrasa) plus his continued acceptance of moslem regimes and his overwhelming disregard of Israel’s sovereignty should be a starting point.
I just read that Egypt is giving hints that it may seek aid from Russia. That’s an ominous sign. Even though it’s a semi-bluff on the part of Egypt it still amazes me that actually made it into the media.
Syria is going to be a pawn of Russia/Iran, therefor Lebanon will too. Now if Egypt goes? That would be a serious threat to the U.S Hegemony.
The long term implications and complications from the Obama administration are going to be world changing. Makes me momentarily think “I’m glad I’m already old”.
Obama is doing tremendous damage to the civilized world, as did Jimmy Carter, who helped the rebirth of the radical Islamic terrorist nations. Now Obama is Carter on steroids.
However, he is Sunni and the Saud’s do not want Iran to have the bomb.
such a wuss.
hurry up 2016,,can’t come fast enough..hope I make it that long..
From wince does your knowledge that Obama is Sunni? I always thought of him shiite (shi’a). And always think of him as shiite(shi’a).
I could be mistaken, but most Indonesians are Sunni. Second, Barack Obama Sr was Sunni. Third, there’s that bowing incident before King Saud. I doubt anybody, who is Shiite, would bow before a Sunni.
Obviously you missed my pun. Oh well, I tried.
Sorry. As I was typing my response, I was thinking of a little joke.
When Osama Bin Laden’s body was dumped into the sea, the fish,converted him from Sunni to Shiite.
Netanyahu will protect Israel. I bet the Israelis, surrounded by enemies, feel safer than Americans.
Reminds me of a comparison of paintings on peace. One was like a Thomas Kincaid painting, the other of a little bird on the side of a cliff protected on all sides by an overhang while a storm raged all around. Which one really represents peace. Also, the bird painting, represented the peace of a child of God, knowing that no matter what, the bird was going to be protected, or at least not worried about it.
With both of them out of the picture the sunnis / saudis roll in.
It's staring us in the face.
See post #32. Please comment.

Exactly what I’ve been thinking since the Obama administration began!! Now 71, I’m thankful I’m not young.
But he’s no different than GWB.
There is a list a mile long of all the damn whining the libs did about Bush and every damn one of them is exactly what barry is doing.
It’s too late, I can’t come up with the whole list.
Those code pink aholes never said a peep when he sent troops to Libya without Congress’ approval. I know all about the time limit thing that affords him the luxury of doing it, but my Lord all we hear to this day is how Bush sent our guys to Iraq w/o approval.
barry is no different than Bush in regards to the lefts complaints. He’s just a j*off who does what he’s told.
I know. It’s all a crock, but he prides himself on being the un-bush.
The Islamic Revolution in Iran was the fusion of Islam with Marxism.
Those nuts holding our hostages in 1979 called them “imperialists” from what sounded like a Moscow script.
And why not?
The Soviets occupied Tehran and northern Iran in the 1940’s during WW 2 to provide a supply line for British and American aid.
They planted moles in there so much that a pro-Soviet government was running the country after the war and had to be overthrown with CIA help.
Then Carter cut out on the Shah that the US put in and the crazies came to power.
I think of Obama as a Marxist and helping Iran fits that theme nicely too.
I read a fascinating article once on why liberals do things that are the exact opposite of logical. The author posits its because for thousands of years people did logical things and were still not living in utopia. Therefore doing the exact opposite of logical will lead us to utopia. Nobody, other than Jimmy Carter, ever thought to give them everything they wanted and Jimmy obviously didnt go far enough.
On the other hand, it may be that our president is a traitor to America and western civilization and he wants a new Caliphate to rise up and turn us all into slaves. (Im not sure where he thinks hell be in this new Caliphate, but he sees himself in some central role. Or, he believes it will not affect him. I suspect he lives in an imaginary world where hes continuously accepting the Nobel prize.)
Having muslim daddies automatically made him a muslim too.
obama told him he had no idea any deal was made with Iran and that he was going to look into the problem. The first he heard about it was on the news.
Anything that Obama proposes should be rejected outright. ANYTHING, on any issue. “PERIOD.”
I agree. I just wish there was something concrete.
I hope Bibi hung up on him.
Iran already has a nuclear bomb, Israeli paper claimsUnnamed government analysts quoted by Maariv say Tehran has crossed all red lines and is already in possession of at least one nuclear weapon
Valerie is happy.
Now Israel feels better.
I am surprised Bibi even took the call.
“Obviously you missed my pun.
That’s OK - some of us got it right away. And you are correct. ;)
There is no doubt that most Western interests would prefer a Saudi ordered Sunni Mideast. The Saudis and the Israelis both have a common interest in Iran being weakened. Both find it intolerable that Iran has made such strategically significant inroads in Syria.Israel is terrified of Iran positioning mobile short range ballistic missiles in Syria which would hurt Israel badly if Israel attacks Iran. The Saudis unsure of their own stability cringe at the prospect of Shia strength in their own backyard. That is why both Israel and the Saudis are taking an extraordinary gamble to support al Queda led Islamists, which neither is sure they can control to overthrow Assad and throw the Iranians out of Syria. Yet none of these moves will bring long term stability to the region. It remains chaotic, backward continues to squander its resources and the masses remain impoverished. Doubt any one group, Shia, Sunni or Israel can dominate long term. BTW Russia has a severe problem with jihadists in southern Russia. It will do all it can to prevent nearby Syria from becoming dominated by political Islamists. Syria would then become a base and haven for the jihadists.
You know what I find so hilarious about that? Letting those facts fly when talking to a drone, they spin like a top at them!
