Israeli Source: Obama No Longer Committed to Iran Attack Option

Direct talks begin with "confidence building measures," and the Netanyahu government must be worried that it would be picking up the tab on the new couple's honeymoon.
It's likely that the high level official's statement is an expression of the Netanyahu government's anxiety over the glee with which the Obama Administration has welcomed the election of a new Iranian president.

So now we know why Bibi is nervous.

  1. Alan Herman says:

    How shocking it is to hear that the Muslim [deleted expletive] will not back up Israel.

  2. Batya Spiegelman Medad says:

    He never really was. The attack has been delayed much too long to use the threat of one.

  3. Herman Rosen says:

    NO ONE SHOULD BE ANXIOUS TO ATTACK IRAN. WHATEVER ONE THINKS IRAN IS NO MEAN MILITARY POWER AND IF THE U S OR ISRAEL ATTACKS IRAN THE REPERCUSSIONS FOR ISRAEL WOULD BE DEVASTATING. MANY JEWS AND ISRAELIS.
    WOULD BE ATTACKED WHEREVER THEY ARE AND NO DOUBT ISRAEL WOULD SUFFER SEVERE BOMBING. THE SANCTIONS THOUGH SLOW TO SHOW EFFECT WILL EVENTUALLY CONVINCE IRAN TO COME TO ITS SENSES…WILL THEY GET NUCLEAR WEAPONS? NO MATTER WHAT.. BOMBING THEM OR NO.. THEY WILL GET THEM SOMEDAY AND SO WILL EVERYONE ELSE…THAT IS AN EVENTUAL REALITY.

  4. Seymour Lecker says:

    Barak Obama is the perfect leader for a nation … a people …. who have lost the will … lost the strength …. to be a world power.
    I t is sad to see the end of America …. it is even sadder to see the American people embrace their own decline into third world status.

  5. Walter Richards says:

    Why did Nevill chamberlain netanyahu cave in to Hussein Obama's.
    pressure and cave in to the precondition of releaing murderes in.
    order to have talks with Abbas.

  6. Benjamin Fox says:

    He never intended to attack Iran, he is a Islamist and won't ever go against his brothers and sisters in arms.

  7. Ethan Perks says:

    I second Benjamin. He has never been Israels friend. He was never serious about stopping Iran's aquisition of nucs.

  8. Obama never had any intention of using force to stop Iran from getting nukes. I don't think he'd even lift a finger if they attacked Israel. He'd blame it on Israel not willing to make enough concessions to the Palestinians. I remember during the 2008 Democratic candidate debates, the question was asked what he would do if Iran attacked Israel, and he hesitated, he froze before answering, and only after Hillary said without missing a beat that she'd retaliate against Iran immediately, he mumbled something about also retaliating against Iran. Not that I think Hillary would really have been much better with Israel than Obama, but there was never any question that Obama would betray Israel. I am still amazed any Jew supports him. I am disgusted that so many voted for him in the first place.

  10. Obama is a hybrid,
    Is white or black,
    Is American or Kenian,
    Is christian or Islamist,
    Is a human being or a monkey,
    Is a clown or big mouth,
    but is only a hybrid.

  12. I don't belive that Netanyahu is anxius to attack Iran, allways Israel never will make a announcement before a attack, also after sometimes say nothing, so I think that Netananyahu will take so a big risk, and is to light if it was a idea, Iran will have such nuke, we ha have tolive with that, that is the reality.

  13. When you lie with vipers, you're going to get bit. I was trying to figure out why Netanyahu was being such a wimp. The only thing I could come up with is Obama might have been promised if he does what he was told, the U.S. will help Israel in dealing with Iran. Let this be an important lesson for Netanyahu. APPEASEMENT DOES NOT WORK. In the end, Israel will have to do what it has always done, go it alone. However, nobody should be naive enough to think that just because Iran has another President, they will somehow become a bastion of freedom. Iran is the same as it always was corrupt, evil, and bent on Israel's destruction. Israel will go through the same thing it did in 1981, when it conducted a preemptive strike against Iraq in order to dismantle their nuclear program. Likewise, Israel will face the same scrutiny and criticism as well. The only question is, will the international community understand and admit they were wrong and Israel was right or will they stew in their own juices.

  14. I don't believe that was it. I do not believe Netanyahu is so stupid by now as to take any promises made by Obama on Iran seriuosly, and Obama must know this. Instead, what happened was this: Remember how back in September of '11, Abbas submitted his formal application for statehood to the UNSC? IT HAS NEVER BEEN BROUGHT UP TO A VOTE. And that is what Obama is holding over Netanyahu's head. Either go along with Obama, or that application IS brought up for a vote, and Obama obstains or even votes for it, an imposed solution that instantly turns Israel into a Rhodesia-style pariah state. No, there were no "promises" here, only threats. And, Netanyahu should stand up to this, as hard as it would be. He's afraid to alienate the U.S., and is looking post-Obama in that regard. This is the only way I can explain his behavior, but this does not excuse him. He MUST stand up to Obama. Three and a half years is way too long to keep making concessions.

  15. Pray for Israel PM to get more wisdom from God to handle the situation in Israel.

  16. Remember only few people are with you Israel. Hypocrisy is letting Israel believe in some people BUT I BELIEVE YOU CAN DO WITH THE HELP OF HE WHO STARTED AND CHOSE YOU AS HIS PEOPLE.

  17. Raja Sohaib says:

    Your ignorance of basis history of Iran is by 1650 years off mark, and your posts sound even further off mark from any form of civilised, logical, factual or rational argument and my first visit is here I read all discussion of <a href="http://iranbriefing.net/">Iran Top News</a> and I will do more of reserch iran.
