Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Met met with the SCHMOTUS, Joe Biden yesterday to tell him its time to get serious about Iran. The “diplomacy” and sanctions are simply not working to stem Iran’s nuclear program.
Israel has publicly supported Obama’s outreach effort, but after two years has seen it bring nothing but the further empowerment of Iranian President Ahmedinejad who is getting credit throughout the radical Islamist world for staring down “the great Satan”
“The only way to ensure that Iran will not go nuclear is to create a credible threat of military action against it if it doesn’t cease its race for a nuclear weapon,” one of the sources said Netanyahu told Biden.
“The economic sanctions are making it difficult for Iran, but there is no sign that the Ayatollah regime plans to stop its nuclear program because of them.”
While even under the Presidency of Barack Obama the United States has declared “all options are on the table to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons, the President’s constant displays of weakness to the forces of terror make the President’s threats a bit unbelievable.
Netanyahu is not necessarily calling for an immediate attack but he is saying without a credible, believable military option there is little chance of sanctions working.
The two men met on the sidelines of the General Assembly in New Orleans, an annual event sponsored by the Jewish Federations of North America.
Netanyahu words mark a sharp escalation from his past statements on Iran, which have focused more on the need for diplomatic measures such as harsh economic sanctions, rather than military deterrence.
On Monday, the prime minister is expected to continue to raise the issue of Iran, both when he addresses the GA and when he meets with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in New York later in the day.
Striking a conciliatory pose, Iran on Sunday proposed that a new round of international talks on its nuclear program to be held in Turkey, but did not set a timetable for such talks.
In his meeting with Biden, Netanyahu insisted that although economic sanctions have made it difficult for Teheran, there is no sign that they have caused the ayatollahs’ regime to halt its nuclear program.
Sanctions have affected the regime but have not persuaded Teheran to drop its pursuit of nuclear weapons, Netanyahu said.
“The only time that Iran stopped its nuclear program was in 2003, and that was when they believed that there was a real chance of an American military strike against them,” Netanyahu told Biden, according to diplomatic sources.
“Paradoxically, only a real military threat against Iran can prevent the need to activate a real military force,” the prime minister said.
Netanyahu warned SCHMOTUS Biden that Iran is toying with the international community
“Iran is attempting to mislead the West and there are worrying signs that the international community is captivated by this mirage.”
Iran has been misleading the West especially President Obama for almost two years now, But this president seems willing to have the patience to see Nuclear Weapons hit the Jewish State.
