When I heard Netanyahu’s speech before Congress I was completely mesmerized. It was a 40 minute speech that felt like two minutes I was so enraptured by what he had to say. He detailed the dangers Isreal faces daily with the threat of rockets being constantly hurled at them on a daily basis and the threats of Iran wiping them off the map with a nuclear bomb. He also noted that the U.S. faces the same danger from Iran if this deal goes thru. “This deal won’t be a farewell to arms, it will be a farewell to arms control … a countdown to a potential nuclear nightmare,” Netanyahu said. Netanyahu is a real leader, the epitome of what we need in the white house now not like the wimpy treasonous community organizer that sits in there now.
I was appalled and disgusted at the fact Nancy Pelosi turned her back on him and released the statement saying Netanyahu’s speech was an insult to our intelligence. The unbreakable bonds between the United States and Israel are rooted in our shared values, our common ideals and mutual interests. Ours is a deep and abiding friendship that will always reach beyond party. Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with the Israeli people. The state of Israel stands as the greatest political achievement of the 20th century, and the United States will always have an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.
That is why, as one who values the U.S. – Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech – saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.
Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated something we all agree upon: a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable to both our countries. We have all said that a bad deal is worse than no deal, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons is the bedrock of our foreign policy and national security. As President Obama has said consistently, all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear-armed Iran.
How dare she call his speech an insult to us..!!!!! Other congressional dissenters said for him to go back to Isreal and called him a child. SHAME ON ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!! They are the ones acting like children and bullies in a schoolyard. I have never seen such disrespect for a world leader. As Rush Limbaugh said “Netanyahu is everything Obama is not. Limbaugh called Netanyahu’s speech “historically important” and filled with “moral, ethical and legal clarity.”
“Nothing like that combination to focus the mind,” Limbaugh said. “And this speech was all about rallying and saving Western civilization, which is what is under assault.”
” Right on Rush!!! Obama is even worse saying “His speech contained nothing new.’“Well we all know Obama stands with Hamas and the muslim brotherhood while saying he stands with Isreal. After all the billions in arms and money he gave them and it was he who is responsible for overthrowing our ally Mubarek in Egypt so the muslim brotherhood could get in.
Netanyahu also showed how gracious he is by greeting Harry Reed and asking him how he was coming along after his fall and also thanked the U.S. for being a strong ally in his speech. I was also very moved by Netanyahu introducing holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel which was very symbolic of what Isreal is facing and the U.S. too as he said “Never again.”
Below is a comment I saw which is very fitting comparing Netanyahu to Obama.
Netanyahu is not just a leader but a great leader. Obama is not a leader at all.
Netanyahu has a firm moral foundation. Obama has no moral foundation.
Netanyahu speaks with clarity and conviction. Obama speaks in meaningless, empty slogans.
Netanyahu is decisive. Obama dithers when decisiveness is called for.
Netanyahu actively engages when faced with a problem. Obama actively withdraws when faced with a problem. (Heads to the golf course)
Netanyahu loves his country and respects those countries and their leaders that have shared values. Obama has shown an inexplicable detachment from his own country and has not shown respect for those countries or their leaders that share American values.
Netanyahu is a great man. Obama is not a great man….Obama is not a man at all, but more like a petulant and immature child wearing men’s clothes.
