Netanyahu, Not Iran, Is An Existential Threat To Israel

One ex-Israeli official put it best. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu seems to be “going berserk.”


Reading the article stopped to look up this name:

---None of this seems to matters to Netanyahu, who acts less as an Israeli patriot than as a U.S. neoconservative. That is why he is the first Israeli prime minister not even to go through the motions of serious negotiations. He is not interested.

Fortunately, President Obama — like President George W. Bush before him — is standing in the way of an Iran war. Netanyahu’s plan requires the U.S. to jump in to bail Israel out once it begins a war it cannot finish. But Obama, like Bush, won’t permit it.

So what is Netanyahu to do? He will defeat President Obama (at least in his dreams) and bring in a Mitt Romney under the sway of Sheldon Adelson. He believes Romney would go to war and so he is engineering conflict with the America to tip the election.

Forget the fact that he can’t do it. The percentage of Jews who vote based on Israel’s perceived desires is 3% at best, and not even that 3% necessarily believes war with Iran is in Israel’s interests. Nonetheless, that is what Bibi’s whole game is about.

The irony is that it is unlikely a President Romney would go to war either. With the military opposed, one would have to imagine that Romney would risk American interests (most importantly, young lives) to please a donor and the same neocon clique that led Bush to war with Iraq.---

Sheldon Adelson:

No wonder America is up sh*t creek.
