Netanyahu Apoplectic about Iran Sanctions Deal, J Street Euphoric (VIDEO)

J Street blaming Israel for failure to achieve peace with the Palestinian Arabs and blaming groups opposed to easing Iran sanctions as the reason Iran might acquire nuclear weapons, is entirely consistent with J Street's "pro-Israel, pro-peace" tagline
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in a public statement, referred to the threatened deal between Iran and the west, as a "bad deal," a "very, very bad deal"

Israel is reeling from the one-two punch delivered by the United States over the past few days.

First was Kerry’s verbal abuse and threats towards Israel should the Jewish state not accede to the suicidal deal with the Palestinian Arabs being rammed down Israel’s throat by the American handmaiden. And second, news of the “deal” that the U.S. is plowing towards in which Iran gets to have its nuclear cake and be relieved of those pesky “biting” sanctions also.

Naturally, long-time cheerleader for the Palestinian Arabs – J Street – is raising its pom-poms, urging on the Iran no-sanctions deal.  They are also doing clean-up duty, trying to get those stragglers in the U.S. senate who are signaling resistance to shredding the sanctions before the Iranian nuclear threat is diminished, let alone gone.

Within hours of Netanyahu’s crystal clear speech that the deal between Iran and the west is a “bad deal, a very, very bad deal,” see the video, below, J Street sent out the message through thousands of emails, and on its website, urging Americans to tell their senators to “take a time out from moving ahead with new sanctions.”

And J Street’s phraseology is precious.  It seeks to position itself as closer to the true north of American Jewry, and points to “organizations that claim to represent the American Jewish community” as the outliers. J Street calls those organizations “hawks” who are undermining the president’s reasoned and thus far successful approach to dealing with Iran.

And in J Street’s email message, though not on its website, J Street represents itself and its ally, this administration, as the cautionary party, the one whose strategy will prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons, while those who disagree with the approach are increasing the chances of Iran going nuclear. J Street’s email message:

A nuclear-armed Iran would be a critical threat to the US, Israel, and global security.

That’s why we welcome reports of recent days’ progress in Geneva toward an agreement with Iran to begin freezing and rolling back its program.

And it’s also why reports that some in the Senate are considering moving a new round of sanctions legislation seems ill-timed and unhelpful.

What?

It is bad enough when J Street shamelessly and relentlessly push the Palestinian Arab propaganda line which claims Jews living and breathing beyond an arbitrary armistice line is the primary cause of unrest in the Middle East.

But when J Street throws its sheltering arms around the mullahs in Iran and tries to help browbeat members of the U.S. senate into easing Iran’s slide into the nuclear weapons club – a club whose doors should and must be shut to any nation that threatens to “exterminate” or “wipe off the face of the Earth” another nation, especially Israel – it makes it impossible to do anything but grimace at their tag line: “pro-Israel, pro-peace.”

  1. I feel any country who has repeatedly and directly threatened the existence of another country should absolutely not be allowed to enrich uranium because you must take them at their word.No country should assume they are just kidding!
    Israel being a very small country cannot afford to take a nuclear hit and if they do they will fire back and then what do you have… its called World War 3 !

  2. I will also ask you to remember how the United States felt during the Cuban Missile Crisis… we were ever so close to World War 3 so why assume a nation with some religious zealots heading the government of Iran would be safe to another country they view as a mortal enemy.

  3. I want to be clear on one other point… I believe in the people of Iran!

  7. Walter Richards says:

    And yet natanyahu has continually caved in to Obama's demands.
    That sickening apology to Erdogen and his relase of convicted murderers.
    Why should Hussein Obama listen to Netanyahu when netanyahu
    has made himself Obama's lap dog?

  8. It is time for us to harden our hearts and sharpen the swords for there will be a fight, a real war, and we will all be in the thick of it…islam must not be allowed to prevail or prosper at any cost and if a great cleansing is required within our walls, in our very homes, then so be it for our nation is mandated to stand in the face of all such evil. There is no room for compromise or weakness of the sort promoted by the cowardly Kerry and the ever so islamic POTUS Obama. Enough already! We must fight and fight to win…for all the world, for ourselves, and for the betterment of humanity all of which we hold dear in our hearts!

  9. God be with our Israel PM
