Texas Congressman Says Obama Must Apologize to Israel on Iran

President Barack Obama should apologize to Israel for putting “Israel in a position of having to defend both of us” from Iran, Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News.

Israel strongly opposed the Obama administration’s recent relaxation of sanctions against Tehran, which continues to develop its nuclear program without international supervision.

Gohmert said the United States should send Israel the new F-35 steal fighter jets as soon as possible and “give them our best bunker-busters because I think Bibi [Benjamin] Netanyahu has the will and the credibility to be a threat.”

“If the United States were a credible threat to attack Iran, we would not have to attack them. But Iran knows we’re not a credible threat to attack them,” said Gohmert. “If Ronald Reagan were president, Iran would’ve stopped a long time ago. Just like Iran released our prisoners the day he took office, they knew Carter was not a credible threat but they knew Reagan was. They know Obama is not a credible threat.”

    When you look up the word idiot in the dictionary, you see a picture of gohmert!

  2. The Guardian says:

    Hey Lobel, I looked up the word idiot in the dictionary … It had your picture.

  3. Paul Hatgil says:

    What doe one expect with the pseudo attempt for peace? Kerry' roots are Jewish. If one studies history regarding peace proposals for peace they will find the Palestinians are out-voted on every issue. The present peace attempts are a sham.

  4. Myriam Obadia says:

    Yes, I was wondering why, if the truth dawned on such an imbecile, it still escapes the President.

  5. Edward Lobel says:

    Myriam Obadia I wouldn't trust gohmert to give me the right time of day!

  6. Myriam Obadia says:

    Edward Lobel Well, on that one subject, I don't know how he managed to with his single digit IQ, but he said the truth Obama and Kerry are trying their best to hide. Were you living in Israel that you would understand the wrong the US is doing its only real ally in the world.

  7. Edward Lobel says:

    Myriam Obadia You are in college and cannot write any better you should be ashamed of yourself!

    Gohmert is an evil idiot who is a big time BIGOT and Anti-Semitic fool.
    He is not smart enough to even understand what he says. You should be embarrassed about sticking up for him! Even that evil Jew eric cantor hates gohmert. Gohmert doen;t know the first thing about Jews or Israel and apparently either do you!

    I know you will love this but John Kerry's grandparents on both sides of his family were Jews and his brother is a practicing Jew. To think in any way manner shape or form he would do anything to harm Israel is not even a remote possibility. I personally know John Kerry and know this to be true! I also know Shelly Adelson and still cannot understand why he blindly supports republicans who do not give a damn about Jews!

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    apology should also be extended to the whole world since he screwed up the balance of peace by thus hoodlums.

  9. Myriam Obadia says:

    Edward Lobel this rant of yours is pointless. Truth is truth, no matter who utters it.
    BTW, I've graduated from College quite a while back.

  10. Edward Lobel says:

    Myriam Obadia The truth according to Myriam Obadia is like saying randal paul always tell the truth! And that is not true either!

    When the vast majority of people think one way then the small minority (like you) are wrong! No matter what you think, Kerry and President Obama must not only think about Israel, they also have to think about the United States and maintaining world peace! If the peace talks prove to be successful, then that benefits Israel, the United States and Israel.
    Talking trash about Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz, Kerry and President Obama have no place in genuine discussion.
