Bibi Netanyahu

In his speech before Congress today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did what the mainstream media has failed to do: Reveal Barack Obama for the cynical coward he is.

True, Bibi’s intent was to bring attention to the Iran nuclear negotiations which he and most Israelis fear puts their very existence at risk. He called out the ruthlessness and evil of the Iranian government with a moral clarity we never hear; he praised America’s greatness while our own President prefers to chastise us for getting “on our high horse.”

Most importantly, he implored the Administration to not make an agreement that would slow down, but hardly stop, this tyrannical regime from creating a nuclear arsenal that imperils Israel and all peace-loving people by accelerating a new arms race:

“This deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade,” he said. “That’s why this deal is so bad. It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.

…This deal won’t be a farewell to arms. It would be a farewell to arms control. And the Middle East would soon be crisscrossed by nuclear tripwires. A region where small skirmishes can trigger big wars would turn into a nuclear tinderbox.”

And, of course, he is absolutely right. Iran is a terrorist nation responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans. Does any thinking adult truly believe that they will desist from their Islamist objectives after the handshakes and signatures are signed?

While Netanyahu warns of the impending global threat, Obama is spending the day launching his “Let Girls Learn” initiative. One man stands before the world, the other in front of a teleprompter. You tell me, which one of these men shows the fortitude to meet the scourge of Islamic Jihad?

We can run away and mug in front of adoring human props like the President or feel so “insulted” by the Prime Minister’s speech that we weep, like Nancy Pelosi.

Not our problem, they believe. They are dangerously wrong in their politically motivated calculation, because, as Netanyahu said, “Iran’s regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem.”
