AFTER THE 'ACME' SPEECH

Despite Ridicule from the Left, Bibi’s Message on Iran Is Being Heard

Three leaders: President Obama, Secretary Clinton and Canadian Prime Minister Harper by the end of last week expressed both in words and deeds a commitment to the elimination of Iran's nuclear program.

Then the Israeli PM added:

“I tried to say something yesterday, that I think reverberates now around the world, as you just told me, and that is to translate the agreement and principle of stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons to practice. In practice, that means setting red lines on their enrichment process. It’s their only discernible and vulnerable part of their nuclear program.

“I think that if such red lines are set, I believe that Iran will back off, and I think this message is percolated a lot of debate and also considerable discussions between the United States and us, And I also hope to take some minutes to discuss it with you as a great champion of freedom, and a great friend of Israel.”

Prime Minister Harper responded:

“Certainly our country has not been shy about warning the world about the danger that the Iranian regime ultimately presents to all of us. As you know we want to see a peaceful resolution of all this and we work closely with our allies to try and alert the world to the danger this presents and the necessity of dealing with it.”

So, to sum up: the White House is committed to stopping Iran’s nuclear program—at all cost; the State Dept. has just unleashed an effective foe against the Mullah’s regime; and at least one powerful Western ally of Israel is totally committed to ostracizing Iran from the family of civilized nations.

Not a bad outcome to a Wile E coyote speech…

    In search for a youtube of Bibi's speech at the UN, I found nothing but videos which deleted this section on the red lines. Your full transcript article, Yori, was greatly appreciated.
    Does anyone have a link that they are will to share to a youtube which has uncensored text?

  2. Charlie Hall says:

    THIS person on the Left does NOT ridicule any Israeli who is concerned about Iran!

    MEK has a long history of terrorist activity. I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend, no matter how awful? I hope this doesn't backfire.

  3. Yori Yanover says:

    There was a NYT piece on Friday that suggested anything we do against the Iran nukes militarily will only serve to bring about a faster nuclear yield. A military action, says the Times, will unify an otherwise crumbling Iranian society. In that context, Charlie, I think unleashing the MEK on Iran's Mullahs is a smart move. It worked in Afghanistan to chase out the Soviets. But, naturally, as you will no doubt reply, it also created the Mujahedin and, eventually, Al Qaeda.

    So, for the record, I can say that it's a clever move, and that there's no doubt in the world that it will also, eventually, backfire.

    I wouldn't put too much trust in Obama's word as he has been known to lie before to further his own agenda.
