US President Obama slams pro-Israeli AIPAC over Iran nuke deal
The Istanbul Daily Sabah ^ | August 10, 2015 | Emre Basaran

First time in US history, an American president dares to oppose the pro-Israeli lobby AIPAC. The crisis deepening day by day upon the Iran nuke deal between the US and its biggest ally in the Middle East, Israel.

U.S. President Barack Obama gave a strong message to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the pro-Israel group that has been strongly opposing the Iran nuclear deal, in his meeting this week at the White House with the two executives of AIPAC.

President Obama invited two directors of AIPAC to the White House this week and gave strong messages regarding AIPAC's cold stance on the nuclear deal. The president accused AIPAC of "spending millions of dollars against the nuke deal and spreading delusive claims regarding the agreement."

According to a report by the New York Times, the president said that he will strongly oppose the AIPAC leader's attitude regarding the deal.

Obama described the ones against the nuke deal as, "Lobbyists spending millions of dollars for the liberal hawk rhetoric that got the US involved in the Iraq war," in a speech he gave in the American University after his meeting with the AIPAC directors.

It is reported that AIPAC has spent 20 million dollars and has put aside some 25 million dollars more to advertise against the nuke deal. While hundreds of AIPAC activists are lobbying against the deal in Congress where it will be put to vote, 700 AIPAC members are working to persuade Congress members against the deal. The Republicans are expected to oppose the nuclear agreement.

AIPAC is also trying to persuade Obama's party, the Democrats against the deal. It is also important that one of the most prominent Democratic leaders, Chuck Schumer declared that he was against the deal just after his meeting with 60 AIPAC volunteers, which struck Obama.

It is said that Obama is very angry at the posters in which he is likened to the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain who signed the Munchen Agreement with Adolf Hitler in 1938. AIPAC denies that it is behind the posters.

The New York Times also reminded in the story that Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush also had some minor issues with AIPAC but never dared to oppose the lobby that is the second most effective after the gun lobby. According to the New York Times, some democrats think that Obama "has gone too far" with his remarks against the AIPAC and they are concerned about a possible permanent damage in relations between the government and the Jewish lobby in a time when the 2016 presidential elections are near.

AIPAC is considered the most powerful lobby after the gun lobby in the United States. Former president George H.W. Bush once said "I'm just a little, alone man opposing thousands of lobbyists in Capitol Hill" regarding a disagreement with AIPAC on mortgage loan guarantees to be given to Israel.

the miserable little antiAmerican nazi is attacking the damned jooooos... as a diversion, mostly....for what is trying to do to America.... placing USA under the threat of Iranian IslamoNazi nuclear ICBM’s

hey, O’s Iranian Nukes don’t have to be in Cuba these days to attack anywhere they want in America

missile technology advances now permit global express delivery

I, for one, refuse to be faked out by O’s Anti=Semitism...which has been OBVIOUS for years, anyway. Obvious.

The issue right now is... has to be...stopping Iran from getting the bombs O wants to enable them to complete. The nukes, the nuke bomb factories, and the iCBM’s

A few days work by our good USAF could achieve the desired, necessary clean=up. But no, we are stuck with an Enemy agent in charge who mis-uses our great air force to PROTECT rather than eliminate the enemy’s bomb factories

we are in some deep deep doo doo ...

When is someone going to tell the world our President is a Communist and Muslim?

Do we need more proof?

A cogent explanation for the last 6+ years:

Written by Mike Gallagher, an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Mike Gallagher Show. Many listeners have asked about the, “Obama: It Was You,” essay that someone sent me.
Here it is...
President Obama...
Isn’t this why you didn”t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists?
1. It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner - “I am one of you.”
2. It was you who on ABC News referenced - “My Muslim faith.”
3. It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
4. It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict -”I will stand with the Muslims.”
5. It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that - “I am a Muslim.”
6. It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
7. It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
8. It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
9. It was you who purposefully omitted - “endowed by our Creator” - from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
10. It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Quran.
11. It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.
12. It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
13. It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.
14. It was you who ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.
15. It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
16. It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
17. It was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
18. It was you who as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.
19. It was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the WH, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
20. It was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
21. It was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
22. It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
23. It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead you profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
24 It was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
25 It was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
26 It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.
27 It was you who embraced the fanatical Muslim Brotherhood in your quest to overthrow the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak.
28 It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
29 It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
30 It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
31 It was you who was un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
32 It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The above provides the basis for virtually everything Obama does and should enflame the anger of all
American Citizens!
Remember, Distribute far and wide.

Regarding number 32 on you list, Jarrett is not Iranian. True, she was born in Iran, but to American parents. Her father was a doctor and her mother was a teacher.

[[Pretty much signed his own political death warrant. Fool.]]

The people who support Obama also support Planned Parenthood’s illegal activities. If they are so callous, why
Would they care about the threat to Israel or even the threat to us.
They have watched, if they have been paying attention, this president turn his back on Israel and other allies.
So far, they have not cared. Many in the Jewish community have no care or concern for Israel.
This man seems to be able to do the most evil things and maintain the support of his minions.

I do not think his followers in the Senate will stop the Iran deal, if that’s what you mean. There will not be 60 votes.

Well, if I get what you’re throwing out there—finally!!
It wouldn’t help as there are enough traitors to continue the evil plan—Biden, Reid, McConnell.
