If and when Iran means to strike, it knows it must do it before Jan. 20, 2017.
Barack Obama made clear in his State of the Union address that he would veto any additional sanctions bill. Perhaps Congress will have a large enough majority to override the mullah's veto. But whether it does or not, it is clear: If and when Iran strikes, it will be with the knowledge that Obama will do nothing. If Israel needs emergency backup, Iran knows that Obama will not provide it.
Iran now controls four capitals in the Middle East: Sana, Baghdad, Damascus, and Beirut. None of Iran's jaw-dropping success in the region would have been possible without Barack Obama's tacit support and sanction. They have postponed "nuke talks" to the point where deadlines mean nothing. Every time Iran misses a deadline, Obama just moves it. And meanwhile, the Iranians arm, build, and enrich uranium. Whatever the U.S. asks for (begs for, cajols, suggests) is laughed off. Yet Iran is the world's No. 1 state sponsor of terror. Obama's pro-jihadist foreign policy has set the stage for the coming war.
The Washington Free Beacon reported Friday that "top Iranian military leaders promised to hit Israel with 'devastating thunderbolts' [and] vowed to effect the 'collapse of the Zionist regime' after Israeli military forces launched a surprise strike on Sunday that killed six Iranian agents, including the top-level commander, and five members of Hezbollah who are believed to have been planning an incursion into the Jewish state."
While Iran spouts this bellicose rhetoric, Obama prepares to punish Israel. Channeling his inner mullah, Obama crossed a line in his jihad against Israel last week. A senior U.S. official responded to the news that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu planned to accept House Speaker John Boehner's invitation to address Congress by issuing a threat: "We thought we've seen everything. But Bibi managed to surprise even us. There are things you simply don't do. He spat in our face publicly and that's no way to behave. Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price."
The vicious Jew-hating rhetoric coming from the White House is unusual even for an anti-Semite like Obama. Clearly, Obama is working furiously to upend the Israeli elections and hurt Netanyahu's election chances.
More than this, he is enraged at the spectacle of Netanyahu standing before a cheering Congress, reflecting the overwhelming support of the American people.
This latest attack on Israel is evil. Plain and simple.
Bear in mind that the Israeli Prime Minister addressing Congress is hardly new. I was fortunate enough to witness then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's speech to Congress in 2006. Yet, so furious is Hussein Obama at Netanyahu's scheduled address to Congress that Obama "leaked" a fictional bombshell.
Arutz Sheva reported Thursday that "a senior Israeli official delivered an uncommonly harsh attack on U.S. President Barack Obama's administration Thursday evening, following the American report that alleged that Mossad Head Tamir Pardo had warned U.S. senators against further Iran sanctions, in contradiction of Israel's official stance. 'The fraudulent claims against the Mossad Head were raised by the Americans yesterday, despite a message that had been transmitted to them on Tuesday by Intelligence Minister [Yuval] Steintz,' the senior Israeli source told Channel 2 news."
Obama administration officials had claimed that "officials from Mossad have lobbied congressional and administration officials to refrain from imposing new sanctions against Iran for fear that it would lead to a collapse of the Western powers." Obama's hatred of the Jews is so out of control, he doesn't even try to make his bald-faced lies believable.
In light of all this, it came as no surprise that Obama declined to attend the 70th anniversary ceremony for the liberation of Auschwitz. Other heads of state will be there, including President François Hollande of France, President Joachim Gauck of Germany and President Heinz Fischer of Austria, along with King Philippe of Belgium, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. But Obama isn't even sending Joe Biden – representing the U.S. will be Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew.
Remembering the Holocaust, just like supporting cartoonists, is an insult to Islam.
The mullah in the White House did not join heads of state in Paris to stand against terror and stand up for freedom of speech. So why should we expect him to join the heads of state of France and Germany and Belgium and Austria and the Netherlands and Denmark to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz, the factory of mass death?
Every day, he shows us who and what he is. Obama's Paris absence, his snubbing of Egypt President al-Sisi's speech, and now this.
The message Obama is sending to Iran and the entire devout Muslim world is, "I am with you. Allahu akbar."Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
