The Foreign Press Reports On America Better Than The American Press

Yesterday Google posted an article by Agence France-Presse abount an interview President Obama gave to CBS’s Sunday’s edition of “60 Minutes.”

The article reported:

Obama, interviewed for Sunday’s edition of “60 Minutes” on broadcaster CBS, said he understands and agrees with Netanyahu’s insistence that Iran not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons as this would threaten both countries, the world in general, and kick off an arms race.

But Obama added: “When it comes to our national security decisions — any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out — any noise that’s out there.”

I’m sorry that warnings that Israel is facing an existential threat are considered ‘noise’ to President Obama. Israel is supposed to be a strong ally, and the President is treating them as if they were an enemy.

The article reminds us:

Tensions have been running high between the United States and Israeli leader, and they will not hold a face-to-face meeting this week at the UN General Assembly in New York. The White House has cited scheduling problems.

The President of Iran has called Israel ‘the little satan’ and America ‘the great satan.’ Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that after Iran goes after Israel, their next target is America? We can stop this by either supporting regime change in Iran (which President Obama has refused to do) or by supporting (and helping) an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Otherwise our plans for ‘peace in our time’ will go up in smoke, just as Chamberlain’s did.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not simply making noise–he is speaking truth that is inconvenient to President Obama’s re-election campaign. Therefore, he is being ignored.
