Netanyahu to Obama: “Stop Iran, or I will”

[b]Netanyahu To Obama: Stop Iran, Or I Will.[/b]

… just before he was sworn in as Israel’s new prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu issued a bold statement — that if Obama does not stop Iran’s nuclear program, Israel most certainly will — that seems to confirm his own hawkishness …

    Netanyahu [‘Bibi’] shares no common language with Obama. (Snip)

    … he quotes [b]president Clinton’s reaction to Bibi’s [/b] retreat from a commitment.

    “At times he was tough,” writes Ross, “yelling at Bibi when he retracted an earlier pledge on Palestinian prisoners. ‘This is just chicken shit. I’m not going to put up with this kind of bullshit.'”

    Aaron David Miller, who was Ross’ deputy, also documented the days of Bibi and Bill. In his book “The Much Too Promised Land,” Miller relates that during their first meeting in the summer of 1996, Bibi lectured the president about the Arab-Israeli issue, prompting Clinton to expostulate when it was over, “Who the fuck does he think he is? Who’s the fucking superpower here?”

    Most definite of all is Joe Lockhart, who was the White House spokesman at the time. In a recorded interview to Clayton Swisher, author of the book “The Truth About Camp David,” he [color=#FF0000][b](President Clinton) described Netanyahu as “one of the most obnoxious individuals you’re going to come into – just a liar and a cheat.[/b][/color] He could open his mouth and you could have no confidence that anything that came out of it was the truth.” …

    Israeli Nuclear Arsenal Prohibits US Foreign Aid Under Symington Amendment.

    WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) are heavily lobbying Congress for $2.775 billion in military aid to Israel. However credible reports from the US Army and a former president confirm the existence of an Israeli nuclear weapons arsenal. This could prohibit US taxpayer funded fiscal year 2010 foreign aid.

    The declassified US Army report titled “The Joint Operating Environment 2008” identifies Israel as a nuclear weapons power. Specifically the US Army highlights “a growing arc of nuclear powers running from Israel in the west through an emerging Iran to Pakistan, India, and on to China, North Korea, and Russia in the east.” Jimmy Carter became the first former President to confirm in 2008 that Israel has secretly financed, developed and deployed an undeclared arsenal of nuclear weapons.

    The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 as amended by the Symington Amendment of 1976 and the Glenn Amendment of 1977 prohibit US military assistance to countries that acquire or transfer nuclear reprocessing technology outside of international nonproliferation regimes. Israel, unlike Iran, is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. If Congress wishes to provide US taxpayer funded foreign aid to Israel in compliance with US law, it may do so only under a special waiver from the office of the President as in the case for Pakistan.
