Because IsraelNationalNews.com says:
Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike
by Mark Langfan
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.
According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Obama was going to shoot down military jets belonging to the only stable country in the entire Middle East, those of Israel — a nation that has been a friend of the United States for many years.
Is it just me, or does this not border on insane? Why would Mr Obama stop the Israelis from defending themselves as Iran does its level best to develop nuclear programs — not for “study” or for “power,” but solely for conversion to offensive weapons?
Once developed, how long would it take for Iran to somehow “allow” one or several of those nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of ISIS or the Muslim Brotherhood or al Qaeda or Hamas or Hezbollah — either by “mistake” or purposely?
Please allow me to ask one simple question that I have yet to see the so-called Mainstream Media ask, a question no one seems willing pose:
With all the oil under its feet, why does Iran seem hell-bent upon developing nuclear power? Iran doesn’t physically need nuclear power or its programs. It could create tens or even hundreds of oil-fired energy production facilities around its nation, so that it could have guaranteed electric power damned near in perpetuity.
Yet, Iran cries that it must have nuclear programs in order to provide for its people. I call bullshit on that.
It’s an excuse, and a poor one at that. Read on:
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army’s chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel’s security.”
Check, please, the physical proximity between Iran and Israel:
The distance between the two nations is roughly 1,100 miles, with only Iraq and Jordan in between.
Israel is easily within striking distance of missiles currently possessed by Iran. Imagine arming them with nuclear warheads.
Clearly, Obama was raised by Communists and Muslims. Read this if you doubt me. There isn’t a Jew anywhere is Obama’s past; instead, his formative years were filled with Muslims in Indonesia and Communists.
The only Caucasoids he admired were Saul Alinsky (oddly enough, quantified as a “community organizer” by Wikipedia and the sole Jew that Obama admired), Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.
Relations between Israel and Barack Hussein Obama have always been rocky. I believe this is because Mr Obama sympathizes with Muslims and disdains Jews. This is in consideration of his upbringing and his education, amongst other things.
On Tuesday, Benjamin Netanyahu will speak before the US Congress, having been invited by John Boehner. The Spite House is doing everything possible to scandalize and minimize this speech.
I wonder: is it because Mr Netanyahu intends to reveal and lend credence to Obama’s plan to down Israel’s aircraft? Will Netanyahu accuse the Spite House of disallowing Israel to defend herself?
Ultimately, just what is the purpose behind Barack Hussein Obama choosing Iran over Israel in the Middle East?
