CENTRAL VIEW for Monday, March 9, 2015

Netanyahu: Soldier, scholar, diplomat, leader

Last week, we revealed that President Obama and his closest adviser, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, are trying to orchestrate the reelection defeat of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. Recall, this is the first time the U.S. ever tried to unseat the democratic government of one of our closest allies while actively aiding and abetting a brutal dictatorship (Iran) in a way that could, eventually, lead to the total destruction of our democratic ally. Four of Mr. Obama’s top political agents are working for the "Victory 2015 -- Anybody but Bibi," political campaign.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s recent address to Congress generated a great deal of interest, not only in his condemnation of a U.S.-proposed deal with Iran that would, in effect, provide a pathway for Iran to become a nuclear-armed power, but it also generated interest in Mr. Netanyahu himself.

After attending high school near Philadelphia, Netanyahu returned to Israel to become a Special Forces Commando in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). He fought for Israel in two wars, was wounded twice, once in Tel Aviv while rescuing airliner passengers hijacked by Islamic terrorists.

Returning to the U.S., he earned a B.S. and a M.B.A at M.I.T. and also studied political science at Harvard. He worked for a time in Boston as a business consultant before returning to Israel for more government service. He came back to America in 1982 to serve as deputy ambassador to the U.S. and, in 1984, was named Israeli ambassador to the United Nations. He served as Prime Minister of Israel from 1996 to 1999, and is now serving again in that office since 2009. During his careers as soldier, scholar, diplomat, and prime minister, he managed time to author four books dealing with Islamic terrorism. In fairness, it should be noted that Mr. Obama is also an author, writing two books about himself.

Before Congress, Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed alarm that the Obama Administration’s proposed agreement with Iran includes a ten-year sunset clause at which time the Iranians would be unrestrained in their development of nuclear weapons. Interestingly, Muslim doctrine limits agreements with Infidels to no more than ten years. The "ten-year" clause suggests the language of the proposed agreement is being framed more by Iran than by John Kerry, the U.S. secretary of state.

Repeatedly, the Iranian government has announced its intention to obliterate the State of Israel. So, unless the Iranian Mullahs have a major change of heart, who would want to raise their family or even invest in a country destined to be obliterated by nuclear-missiles some ten years from now?

In 2011, President Obama pulled our troops completely out of Iraq which served to invite the Iranian armed forces into northern Iraq unopposed. Presumably, that was done to entice the Iranians to the nuclear-negotiating table. Apparently, neither Shia Iran nor President Obama saw the Sunni ISIS "Junior Varsity" becoming such an overwhelming force. Today, Iran’s top general is inside Iraq, commanding a mostly Shia force, trying to recapture Tikrit from the ISIS Sunnis. Folks, not even Hollywood could make up this kind of stuff. Is all this bloody chaos by accident or by design? We report. You decide.
