Saudi Billionaire Says What Kingdom Won’t Say: No Faith in Obama

Monday, November 25th, 2013

The Saudi kingdom has kept a suspicious silence over President Barack Obama and his Western allies’ deal with Iran, but one of its wealthiest billionaires princes, who owns lots of shares in Twitter, Apple and News Corp., has minced no words to express no confidence in Obama.

He also happens to be a nephew of King Abdullah.

“There’s no confidence in the Obama administration doing the right thing with Iran,” Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, told Bloomberg News.

Then he blurted out a whopper by saying. “We’re really concerned.” The “we” is “Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Middle East countries,” he said.

It is no secret that Riyadh and Jerusalem are privately in cahoots again Iran, but when the king’s billionaire nephew publicly states Israel is an ally against the White House, somebody at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue should start cleaning out his ears.

His comments came hours before the deal with Iran was announced, but he presumably figured Obama would surrender and let Iran win the bargaining session.

“Obama is in so much of a rush to have a deal with Iran,” he said. “He wants anything. He’s so wounded. It’s very scary. Look, the 2014 elections are going to begin. Within two months they’re going to start campaigning. Thirty-nine members of his own party in the House have already moved away from him on Obamacare. That’s scary for him.”

Open criticism of Obama playing politics on the life-or-death issue of a nuclear Iran is pretty harsh stuff and might have made it a bit easier for the Kingdom to refrain from saying what it really thinks – that Obama does not understand anything about the Middle East or simply could not care less.

Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan a few weeks ago said that if President Obama continues to accommodate Iran, it might make a “major shift” away from Washington. And “away” from the White House means closer to the Zionist entity. It is amazing what some people will do to survive.

Prince Awaleed’s openly lumping the Kingdom with Israel and “other Middle East countries” cannot be shooed away as a one man’s opinion. Bloomberg noted that his “public statements are often interpreted as a barometer for the thoughts of Saudi’s rulers.”

Obama may be buying off Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States by offering them more security guarantees, but after Obama ditched Saudi Arabia and backed off its threat to attack Syrian President Bassar al-Assad for using chemical weapons, who trusts Washington any longer?

It is assumed Israel has nuclear warheads, and Saudi Arabia already has not kept it a secret that it would try to get its hands on nuclear weapons via Pakistan if Iran goes nuclear, so what guarantees does Washington have to offer?

The agreement with Iran by the Western powers, headed by Obama, puts the president in the saddle for the time being.  Except for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, no one – not even Saudi Arabia – is going to second-guess Obama and not give the deal a chance.

Obama has neutralized Israel and silenced Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, and, according to Israel’s Channel 10 television, he will use the deal to promote its agenda to solve all of the problems in the Middle East.

The television station reported that Obama will now figure it can pressure Iran, and even Russia, to help solve the Syrian civil war.  With that under his belt, it is only a short hop skip and a jump to crown the Palestinian Authority as the non-nuclear weapon to destroy Israel by squeezing it into its old “Auschwitz borders” until the next step of flooding it with Palestinian Authority “immigrants.”

Given President Obama’s track record on Obamacare, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen and about every other country outside of Antarctica, it is a fair assumption that things will fall apart quickly. If it indeed is Obama’s plan to march to world peace with Iran at its side, the man forgets, or doesn’t even know, that he really does not understand the Middle East or simply could not care less.

The ink was hardly dry on the deal when U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani already interpreted it differently.

Tehran said the agreement leaves it with the right to enrich uranium, even if its low grade, while Kerry denied that the deal recognized Iran’s “right” to enrich uranium.

Perhaps a “bad deal” was better than no deal because once the bad deal is exposed for what it is, the Western powers can go back to square one and start over with common sense.

Of course, that assumes it is not too late.

Netanyahu Tells Russian Jews about the ‘Real Iran’

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Jewish community leaders in Moscow during his trip to Russia, “The Iranians deny our past and repeat their commitment to wipe the State of Israel off the map. This reminds us of the dark regimes of the past that plotted against us first and then against all of humanity.”

The Prime Minister , who has made Iran the one and only topic in recent statements, explained to the Jewish leaders, “They are also using propaganda: They are now creating a propaganda film in which hears a piano being played, and sees the Foreign Minister going through a building, talking about the need for peace in the future.

“This is not the real Iran. The real Iran is what the leader of Iran, Khamenei, said yesterday. He called Jews ‘rabid dogs’ and said that they were not human. The public responded to him with calls of ‘Death to America! Death to Israel!’

“Doesn’t this sound familiar to you? This is the real Iran! We are not confused. They must not have nuclear weapons. And I promise you that they will not have nuclear weapons.”

Iran Herds Jews with Torah Scrolls to Rally for Nukes

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

A group of Iranian Jews demonstrated in front of the United Nations office in Tehran on Tuesday to voice their support for Iran’s right to go nuclear.

They even held Torah scrolls, according to the regime’s official Fars News Agency, which added, “The Jewish demonstrators also performed mass religious ceremonies.”

The photo accompanying the blurb shows enough men, most of them apparently in their 70s and 80s and a couple of young boys with a kippa, for a minyan.

So that “mass religious ceremony” was davening the afternoon prayers? No, that won’t do because there were women, also very elderly, and there was no mechitzah to separate the sexes.

It is not Purim, so they were not reading from the Book of Esther about the Jews in ancient Iran – Persia – who were saved at the last moment from destruction by the Iranian regime’s ancestors.

The Iranian Jews obviously were praying for the government, as all Jews do wherever they live, except for certain groups in Israel who shall remain unnamed.

The Jews also issued a statement, according to Fars, to wit, “We, the Iranian Jews, announce our full support for Iran’s negotiating team in the talks with the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) and advise the other party to seize this opportunity.”

It is amazing that these people are so well-versed in current events that they can spout off “Group 5+1” so easily, but you know the Jews; we know everything.

In case you think the pro-nuke rally was sincere, the Propaganda Ministry, known as Fars, dispelled all doubts by writing that the Jews stated, “The Iranian Jews insist on standing by their Muslim brothers in defending the right to use peaceful nuclear energy for scientific and economic progress of Iran and supporting global peace.”

How do they know that the Islamic Republic has only peaceful intentions and does not want to annihilate the Iranian Jews’ Jewish brothers in Israel? They know because Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei says so. After all, he issued a  Muslim fatwa religious edict that “the pursuit and possession of nuclear weapons [is] ‘a grave sin’ from every logical, religious and theoretical standpoint.”

“The Jewish demonstrators reiterated that Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism and noted that the Iranian Jews have complete freedom to observe their religious rituals in Iran,” Fars added.

Just to make sure we are not being too cynical, God forbid, The Jewish Press checked in with a local acquaintance whose family is from Iran.

Yes, Jews have religious freedom in Iran, he said.

Yes, the Jews live in fear, he said.

And, yes, it is nonsense to believe that Iranian Jews would initiate on their own a demonstration in favor of nuclear weapons that could wipe out Israel.

But how do the Iranian Jews know that the regime wants to use peaceful nuclear energy for nuclear weapons to destroy Israel.

Of course, they know.

Jews know everything, especially those living in Iran.

Khamenei Barks, ‘Israel Is a Rabid Dog’

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Iran’s attempt to soft-pedal its nuclear program in talks in Geneva has not affected its rabid anti-Zionism, with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei now calling Israel the “rabid dog” of the Middle East.

“It came from the mouth of the rabid dog of the region – Israel – that Iran is a threat to the world,” he said in a speech broadcast on the regime’s official Press TV with an English translation. “No, the fake regime Israel and its allies are the threat,” Khamenei said.

He added, “We do insist that we will not step back one iota from our rights.”

His audience responded with the blessing, “Death to America” to  back Iran’s intentions that it wants nuclear power for peaceful purposes,  such as obliterating Western culture and making the world safe for radical Islam.

Bush Tells Jews, ‘I Don’t Trust Iran’

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Former President George W. Bush told leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that he did not trust the Iranian regime to change its intentions toward Israel, according to several people in attendance.

“I will not believe in Iran’s peaceful intentions until they can irrevocably prove that it’s true,” Bush told the 1,200 guests at the gala event at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. “The United States’ foreign policy must be clear eyed and understand that until the form of government changes in Iran, it is unlikely that their intentions toward Israel will change.”

The event, held Tuesday night, honored several past presidents of the umbrella organization and its longtime executive vice-chairman, Malcolm Hoenlein.

Bush’s appearance had not been publicized, and attendees were asked not to record or tape his comments.

The program also featured video testimonials from President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as remarks from several Israeli and U.S. politicians, and Jewish notables.

Iran calls Netanyahu a ‘Liar’ Who Is ‘’Politically Isolated’

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Iran’s charm offensive stopped at the Israeli border Tuesday with its foreign minister calling Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a “liar” who is “politically isolated.”

Regardless of nods of agreement from more than a few people in Israel who would say the same concerning domestic issues, the “call it like I see it” accusations by Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif are a bit refreshing after all of the “white lies” and charades played out by the American and Iranian presidents and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

It all started – this time around – when Iranian President Mohammed Rohani’s speech at the United Nations last week was in total contrast to the insults and arrogance of his predecessor Mohammed Ahmadinejad.

The world lost a big advantage with the end of the regime of Ahmadinejad, who at least said what he really believes, ugly or not.

Rohani’s replacing Ahmadinejad is like Mahmoud Abba’s replacing Yasser Arafat. Instead of Arafat’s hip on the holster and direct orders to carry out terrorists attacks, Abbas dresses up in a Western costume with peace-and-love dialogue in English while inciting in Arabic.

Now we have Rouhani speaking with President Barack Obama on the phone for 15 minutes, setting the foundation for “negotiations” that are going to get as far as the “peace process” while Iran continues to work its way towards nuclear capability.

Rohani sweet-talked the West, and Obama poured on the honey at the United Nations without mentioning that “all options are on the table,” meaning that military force could be used to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

He saved that comment for his chat with Prime Minister Netanyahu, who refrained from saying what he thinks by telling the president to get off his bottom and start bombing the “red line” that he drew a year ago at the United Nations.

“I believe that it’s the combination of a credible military threat and the pressure of those sanctions that has brought Iran to the negotiating table,” he said, giving up the chant that negotiations are simply a way to give Iran more time to make the red line a distant memory.

But when it comes to Iran and Israel, each country tells it as it is.

“We have seen nothing from Netanyahu but lies and actions to deceive and scare, and international public opinion will not let these lies go unanswered,” Zarif said in an interview with Iranian television broadcast on Tuesday.

“For 22 years, the Zionist regime has been lying by repeating endlessly that Iran will have the atomic bomb in six months,” Zarif added. “After all these years, the world must understand the reality of these lies and not allow them to be repeated.”

Zarif also said the Prime Minister is the “most isolated man at the UN” as he prepared to give his General Assembly.

The diplomatic deceit practiced by the United States and Iran might be a way to mark time until sanctions convince Iran to ditch its nuclear weapons program. It also might a way to mark time until Iran ditches negotiations and builds a nuclear weapon aimed at Israel.

Iran and Israel’s honest and threatening dialogue could be the prelude to war.

They also could be a healthy way to limit a confrontation to a verbal war in order to keep the peace.

Netanyahu in US on ‘Mission of Truth’

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is scheduled to land in the United States early Sunday morning “tell the truth in the face of the sweet-talk and the onslaught of smiles,” referring to Iranian President Hussan Rouhani’s “charm offensive” in the United Nations last week.

The Prime Minister said before boarding the lane late Saturday night, “This evening I am leaving for New York and Washington to meet with President Obama and afterwards address the UN General Assembly….

“One must talk facts and one must tell the truth. Telling the truth today is vital for the security and peace of the world and, of course, it is vital for the security of the State of Israel.”
