US Juggling Act: ‘Diplomacy with Iran and Censure of Weapons Ship’

JewishPress Logo

The White House finally has come out with a statement condemning the ship carrying Iranian missiles destined for Gaza, but only after it took a couple of days to figure out how  to  censure the smuggling attempt without hinting that perhaps Iran cannot be trusted in talks on its nuclear development.

“It is important to make clear that even as we continue efforts to resolve our concerns over Iran’s nuclear program through diplomacy, we will continue, in coordination with our partners and allies, to push back against Iranian support for terrorism, threats against our friends and partners, and violations of human rights,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said at a press briefing Monday.

“We were very clear about our views on the ship that was interdicted and the fact that we condemn in the strongest terms Iran’s efforts to supply terrorist organizations operating in the region with weaponry,” Carney said. “We, the United States, strongly condemn this violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1929.”

He stated, “We are not holding back at all in the steps we take and the views we hold about Iran’s continued support for terrorist organizations.

Since the Obama administration clearly states that Iran supports terror, the question remains, “Why does President Barack Obama negotiate with Tehran and not with Hamas, or North Korea?”

  2. I’m so ashamed of our President…..

  3. The White House is out of its depth and should stop fighting Israel and stop trying to be friends with dangerous treacherous murderous lying radical Islam – draw the line in the sand and incinerate anything even slightly threatening on the other side!
