The main purpose of US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel in the spring is to warn Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu against attacking Iran, unnamed officials told Army Radio on Sunday.
According to the officials, the urgency of the trip is because in his speech to the United Nations in September, Netanyahu had flagged the spring of 2013 as a significant time in the context of the Iranian nuclear threat.
Therefore, they said, Obama is concerned that the prime minister will decide to attack Iran now when he is backed by a new government and can establish a new security cabinet, without Dan Meridor and Benny Begin, two Likud MKs and alleged opponents of such a strike who lost their Knesset seats in the recent elections.
The officials told Army Radio that the US president subsequently decided to transmit a direct message to Netanyahu: “Don’t attack Iran, let me handle matters with the Iranians according to my understanding, and if necessary I will take action, we have capabilities that you do not
Want to say that Rand Paul has introduced a bill, S.201, in the Senate to STOP the sale of the F-16s/tanks. The other was just an amendment. He said this one is currently under consideration, so THERE IS TIME to deluge the Senate with letters. It is NOT over. This information came in a letter from Paul that I received as email Monday. If you contact his office for update of the F16 sale, you will get on the list for regular updates. Here is an exerpt from the letter:
"Following the killing of my amendment, I introduced similar language as a bill in the Senate (S.201). S. 201 has placed upon the Senate Legislative Calendar, where it awaits further consideration. Rest assured as issues regarding U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East Region continue to be debated before the Senate, I will keep a close eye on each situation. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and please do not hesitate to contact my office regarding any other federal issue in the future."
Hope they will help pass this bill, very soon, as Obama PUSHED UP THE DATE FOR THE DELIVERY OF THIS SALE FROM SEPT 30, 2014 TO FEBRUARY, 2013. Obama is trying to be a big orchestrator here, and it is needed that we do anything we can to not let this sale go through.
I hope Hannity will have Paul on his show about this new bill, so many would press the senate to pass S. 201.
What was said above by 12grace is very important.
Though politically, it wouldn't be wise... I'd stand Obama up and give him the same courtesy he gave Bibi...
Notice how the parasitic Palestinian is all too eager to meet with his new ally Obama.
Nothing more than a photo op for Obama... oh, and for a chance to again abuse and bully Israel.
Pay close attention as the anti-Christ is said to have a major influence in the peace treaty between Israel and the Arabic nations that will last for 3 1/2 years.
Obama Pushing For Middle East Peace Agreement
Mid-East Prophecy Update - January 27th, 2013
AND Abbas. OK, now I understand Obama's trip to Israel. I KNEW there had to be more to it than just 'Obama going to Israel' (for the first time since he's been President) ;-) ;-)
Ahhh, great. Another beer summit. Is this one because Obama acted 'stupidly'? Will he take Abbas out to lunch afterword, sticking Netanyahu with the bill?
Let me explain something, Mr. President, as it seems your daddy didn't teach you anything other than how to hate America. You don't step into someone's own living room and demand anything. I would love to hear that Bibi had suddenly come up with pressing matters to attend to at the last minute (like getting his toenails clipped) and had to leave O'bambam standing at the empty table.
He could say something to the effect of "I'm sorry, Barry. I'd love to promote your quest for another Nobel Peace Prize, but I have to go stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons. We'll let you know what the outcome is afterwards so you can call the media for a photo-op. Shalom".
Host? How do you host a meeting in someone else's country? I don't see how any good can come of this "meeting". This is more like 2 against 1.
think of him like those "replacement refs" like we had at the NFL. Give him a job that he's never done in his life before and let him push the odds in his favor!............................oh yeah, he does that here already :/
"Host? How do you host a meeting in someone else's country?"
You don't expect Barry to play 2nd fiddle do you? ;-)
Send him to the Palestinian territory, he can take a 'photo-op' helping to load rockets ala 'Hanoi Jane', they are cut from the same cloth.
WARNING..... DANGER... DANGER.... BIBI watch your back... anything barry could say will be coming out the other side of one of his 8 lying faces....
BTW..... this would be the 1st time during his presidency he has been to Israel...
I hope Bibi treats the communist-in-chief the same way he was treated by Obama. He should leave him sitting while he goes to dinner and then escort him out the BACK door while giving him the "fickle finger of fate" as he leaves.
Well it's only been over 4 years since he's been there. Gotta admire dear leader, once he sets his mind to do something finally, he's in a hurry to do it and gets it done. Oy vey, all I can say is I'm glad Bibi won his re election and knows the dear leader's real intentions. Stand strong Mr. Netanyahu!!
What a joke. How do you host something in a foreign country? Obama has nothing good in mind when it comes to Israel. His backing of everything muslim since his becoming president should have the folks in Israel very, very wary. I have this feeling Obama is going to try and tell Bibi he needs to give half of Israel to the terrorist group the palestinians.
I so want to see Netanyahu pick up Obama and do a body slam with him.
Just like his dem predecessor!
He's gotta get those Joooos to see the light and do what he tells them to, so he can have a nice 'legacy'.
I wish he'd meed Abbas alone, and then let fate in the form of Hamas*) take its course.
*) with a tiny little bit of help from M***** - but we won't mention that, :-)
Of course the little anus will... now that he has armed their enemies with fighter jets (and other sundry top-line offensive weapons).
Obama doesn't know how to negotiate, only bully. The GOP is an example of his skill and I pray Israel sees this before Obama sets foot on their soil. IMO it would be better if Obama just stayed in DC, on a golf course or a basketball court because he's always in the way and always has to have center stage.
If Odumb@$$ likes to be center stage, I'm sure there must be some way to distract him so he won't cause any more damage than what he's done now. Oh, I know! Tell him that MSLBC will have a LIVE 24 hour feed of him shooting a basketball (or golfing, whatever he's in the mood for). Place some cameras around the area (no need to turn them on of course) and let him wear himself out for 24 hours. :P
He is quite likely to also tell him that if he dares maim and mutilate any more of his Muslim brothers (recent Iranian nuclear facility sabotage and Syrian bombing), he'll sponsor a U.N. resolution to level sanctions against them. Something tells me he'll have overwhelming support in the U.N.
