Israel takes back promise to Obama not to attack Iran before the election


Sources from inside Washington, DC are telling the international media that Israeli leadership is upset with US President Barack Obama’s handling of Iran’s alleged nuclear threat and may take military action before the November election.

The Debka news agency quotes sources from America’s capital that say Israel has withdrawn its earlier promise to avoid striking Iran before the upcoming US presidential election this fall. The reason, reports Debka, heavily revolves around President Obama’s refusal to side with Israel’s demands in dealing with the rumored emerging threat of a nuclear program in Iran.

Previously, authorities in Israel told the White House that they would refrain from striking Iran until after Election Day as to avoid marring the race by possibly involving the US in an international war. Because President Obama has not put his foot down on Iran’s alleged nuclear warhead procurement plan, Israeli officials are not reportedly willing to attack at any moment.

“There is no need to tell us what to do, and we have no reason to panic. Israel is very, very strong, but we do know that the Iranians are accomplished chess players and will try to achieve nuclear capabilities,” reads a translated statement from Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered this week in Hebrew. “Our position has not changed. The world must stop Iran from becoming nuclear. All options remain on the table.”

Minister Barak offered his statement on May 23, less than a week after attending a meeting in Washington. On May 17, Barak spoke with US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at the Pentagon outside of Washington to discuss the ongoing conflict between Israel and Iran, at which point Debka reports he was told that Obama had rejected the Jewish state’s plea. Debka’s sources say Obama was unwilling to demand that Iran halt their “high-grade uranium enrichment, export its stocks of material enriched higher than 3.5 percent grade and shut down production at the Fordo nuclear plant near Qom.”

Debka adds that, after the meeting with his US counterpart, Defense Minister Barak spoke with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Adviser Tom Donilon over the ongoing Iran issue but was unable to have either member of the Obama administration aid in Israel’s plea to sanction Iran.

Previously, President Obama has gone on the record to say that he stands by America’s alliance with Israel and told The Atlantic earlier this year, “I think that the Israeli government recognizes that, as president of the United States, I don’t bluff.”

“I also don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But (both) governments recognize that when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say,” added Obama.

President Obama and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Washington back in March during the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference, where the Iran issue was a major topic of discussion. Despite urging from overseas, however, the White House yet refused to formally side with any military strikes on Iran.

    They’ll go it alone. I don’t speak for the rest of America, but I flatly refuse to lift a finger to help Misery-All —–they want to throw me in Leavenworth like Bradley Manning, fine, I will accept it as a personal honor. Israel is nothing but a bowel tumor for the whole world and needs to be forcefully told where the bear shit in the buckwheat. After the totally insane attack on the USS LIBERTY in June ’67, we Americans don’t owe Israel the sweat off our scrota.

    But Mobama WANTS Israel to attack Iran before the election. Then we’ll have to go protect Israel, start WWIII, and impose Martial Law, and suspend the elections. That way he gets to remain Pres without those pesky voters (who are ready to vote him out & he knows it).

    If I was Frobama, I would tell isntreal to piss off. No more TAXPAYER DOLLARS in the billions, no more weapons of mass distruction, NOTHING! You got problems with Iran, Egypt, Jordan, Siria, Lebonon, etc., YOU DEAL WITH IT.

    The isntrealis will cry and kvetch, and threaten with their Sampson option. If they pull the trigger on that, then turn that shi**y little c*try into a glass parking lot. The Russians will thank us, the whole Arab world will thank us and the US will get back to what it was supposed to be, free of the foreign influence of isntreal. And any jews here that dont want to play ball can go to that glass parking lot alive and kicking or be sent there horizontal. Im talking to you LIEberman.

    The game is up. The people know, and damn are we pissed. You’re playing with our lives and the lives and futures of our children. You will pay – one way or another – but you will pay.

    Netanyahu is a sick sadist and should be tried in the World Cort today. He is mentally unstable and should be in a psychiatric hospital.

    The Israels will not and can not go it alone against Iran as they could not against the Hezbollah in 2006. They are doing all they can to pressure the US to do their dirty work and the US knows better.For the time being! . This is however no guarantee that the Zionist lobby will not win out in getting the US involved in the near future which will in my opinion result in defeat for both the Zionists and worse still the US.
