Riffing on Hanukkah holiday, prime minister says Israel will be a light unto the nations in dealing with Tehran should diplomacy fail
Melding the Hanukkah holiday and foreign affairs, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu solemnly vowed to serve as a light unto the nations and act against Irans nuclear program should diplomacy fail Thursday night.
Speaking at the Western Wall for a Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony, Netanyahu compared Irans nuclear program to a darkness that would be forced out by Israel, referencing a popular childrens song for the holiday.
We came to drive out the darkness, and the largest darkness that threatens the world today is a nuclear Iran, he said. We are bound to do all we can to prevent this darkness. If possible we will do this diplomatically, if not we will act as a light unto the nations.
Jerusalem has denounced a deal signed Sunday between Iran and six world powers that eases sanctions in return for limits on uranium enrichment and a more intrusive inspections regime.
The prime minister, however, said he had not given in to delusions that Iran would pull back its nuclear program, comparing the nuclear deal to a failed diplomatic initiative meant to stymie North Koreas nuclear program.
I believe in speaking the truth, and standing for important principles in order to ensure peace in the world and our security, and of course our peace, he said. We will continue to act in this spirit. We came to drive out the darkness, and the largest darkness that threatens the world today is a nuclear Iran, he said. We are bound to do all we can to prevent this darkness. If possible we will do this diplomatically, if not we will act as a light unto the nations.

The military window to stop Iran is quickly closing.......
You read my mind...
This is going down, and soon...
Looks like the Saudi’s are going to let them use an airstrip for a staging base for refueling, and other logistical issues...
Iran needs to be slapped down and put in their place.
I remember during the run up to the gulf war with Iraq, the media constantly reported Iraq's army being 5th most powerful in the world.
They folded like a cheap suit. That's the MO for these muzzie countries...talk tough so everyone will fear you. If that doesn't work, blow up a few buses full of woman and children utilizing your proxies.
As far as I'm concerned, Iran deserves a lil payback.
If they don’t go on the 3rd, it might push to:
January 1, 2014
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
been hearing this crap for so long I don’t believe ya any more there Bibi.
You and obammy can’t find a set of balls betwixt ya.
Just freaken nuke iran.
A part of Teheran would be sufficient, or a little dirty one on the heavy water plant.
Israel doesn’t have the will to deal with Iran. Just more posturing amounting to nothing.
Looks like “never again” is going to become “well, ok, so long as you wait 70 years.”
Looks like the Saudis are going to let them use an airstrip for a staging base for refueling, and other logistical issues...
Think about the significance of this previously unthinkable alliance ....
This is going down, and soon...
I wouldn’t bet against it.
God go with Israel and PM Netanyahu.
The less Bibi talks, the closer it gets to action.
It’s beyond time for the West to take the offensive. And we’ve never paid Iran back for The Hostage Crisis.
Less talky, more explodey. And if any snotrag liberal ‘reporter’ tries to sabotage your war efforts, strap him or her to the warhead of a follow-up cruise missile for a “first hand view of the attack”.
Here is some additional “food for thought” re Iran’s genocidal program, and whether or not Bibi will man up - http://wp.me/p2x3Fm-55L
Yeah..the only wildcard though is Russia and China, both of whom are greatly empowered by the muslim lover in the Whitehorse. Big problem.
May God be with us all, for we surely will all
feel the effects.
Personally, I think they should make a torch of Iran
to light the way.
The Israelis have a history of preemptive strikes,
their nation is so small they cannot afford to take
a first strike. History has been a harsh tutor.
Am Israel Chai!
Pro God, Pro Israel, Pro Guns, Pro what America is supposed to be, not what she has become... Yes indeed, may God be with us all. I’m thinkin’ that when hell is unleashed on earth and America’s skirts start to burn, Obama will be on a plane to somewhere in the middle east to assume leadership of the world, the man is truly demonic...
