Israelis at a recent Iranian celebration
Barack Obama said on Thursday that just because Iran has anti-Semitism at its core, it doesn’t mean that they can’t be and aren’t rational. At the same time Obama was saying this, Iran threatened to rain down ‘80,000 rockets at Tel Aviv and Haifa’ and ‘raze Israel at the slightest provocation by the U.S. or Israel’.
It’s all good. We need that Iranian nuclear deal for Obama’s legacy.
The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran is threatening ‘80,000 rockets at Tel Aviv and Haifa’ and to raze Israel over a distorted Ya’alon comment.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon allegedly said:
“We are going to hurt Lebanese civilians to include kids of the family. We went through a very long deep discussion … we did it then, we did it in [the] Gaza Strip, we are going to do it in any round of hostilities in the future,” while speaking at an unnamed “conference in Jerusalem.”
Iran also claimed Israel would act “as the Americans did in ‘Nagasaki and Hiroshima, causing at the end the fatalities of 200,000.'”
The Israelis couldn’t find any reference to the second comment but the first one was probably referring to comments at a conference in which he said Hezbollah was deliberately putting weapons in civilian homes in Lebanon.
He actually said:
“If we don’t intercept the rocket-launchers in advance, civilians will be hurt, if not killed. If we hit the launchers, it will hurt or kill Lebanese civilians.” He said a “long, deep discussion” regarding the “moral and legal considerations” took place before the final decision to strike the rocket launcher.
Iranian Major General Rahim Safavi responded by threatening Israel with violence, saying that “the Zionists and the US are aware of the power of Iran and Hezbollah, and they know that over 80,000 (Iranian) missiles are ready to rain down on Tel Aviv and Haifa.”
They are keeping their military capabilities secret and this is the country we plan to work out a nuclear deal with.
“We have displayed part of our military capabilities while we have kept many of our achievements and capabilities hidden to outsiders,” a comment which comes just a month after P5+1 countries agreed to a framework deal with Iran. “Our response will be crushing not just to the Zionist regime, but to any other aggressor who intends to take action against us.”
According to Fars News Agency, a top official at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force warned that Tehran will raze Israel to the ground in case the US or Tel Aviv take military action against Iran.
“In case of the smallest wrong action by the US and the Zionists against Iran, we will raze Israel to the ground easily,” Shirazi warned, addressing a ceremony in the Southeastern city of Kerman on Wednesday evening.
When Iran gets the nuclear weapon, every slight will be met with threats or actual bombs. Israel is already suffering through bombs being lobbed into southern Israel on a regular basis. This is why terrorist nations can’t be allowed to get a nuclear weapon which is what the nuclear deal will do. Three days ago the Ayatollah said inspections will not be part of the deal.
On Thursday, Barack Obama said in an interview with the Atlantic that even though “the fact” is that Iran is “anti-Semitic”, it doesn’t mean they’re not rational, but he’s wrong. They’re not rational if they if they want to raze Israel.
“I think it is not at all contradictory to say that there are deep strains of anti-Semitism in the core regime, but that they also are interested in maintaining power, having some semblance of legitimacy inside their own country, which requires that they get themselves out of what is a deep economic rut that we’ve put them in, and on that basis they are then willing and prepared potentially to strike an agreement on their nuclear program,” Obama said in an interview with left-wing magazine The Atlantic on Thursday.
It’s okay for Iran to be racist too.
“The fact that you are anti-Semitic, or racist, doesn’t preclude you from being interested in survival,” Obama said of the Iranian regime during the interview. “It doesn’t preclude you from being rational about the need to keep your economy afloat; it doesn’t preclude you from making strategic decisions about how you stay in power; and so the fact that the supreme leader is anti-Semitic doesn’t mean that this overrides all of his other considerations.”
All he cares about is his legacy.
“Look, 20 years from now, I’m still going to be around, God willing. If Iran has a nuclear weapon, it’s my name on this,” Obama said. “I think it’s fair to say that in addition to our profound national security interests, I have a personal interest in locking this down.”
Obama is making a nuclear deal with people who promise to destroy Israel and the U.S. and Britain are in the mix as well.
Press TV is reporting that Iran is making a deal to drill Iraqi oil and gas fields.
The closed-door talks between director general of the state-run Iraq Drilling Co. Idriss Mohsin al-Yasiri and CEO of Iran’s North Drilling Company Hedayatollah Khademi, hope to cede “some oil and gas drilling projects” by Iraq to the Iranian side.
ISIS and Iran will control the entire Middle East under Barack Obama’s leadership. Iran clearly wants to destroy the U.S. and Israel but Obama will work out the bad deal anyway.
