Obama to Israel, “I’ve got your back.”

Washington, D.C., March 4, 2012

11:00 Sunday morning President Obama addressed a large crowd of supporters at The American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC) in Washington. The speech reassured Israel of America’s support and commitment, and clearly sent a message that our two nations will not tolerate Iran having nuclear bombs. “A nuclear-armed Iran is completely counter to Israel’s security interests,” said the President. After a slight pause he added, “But it is also counter to the national security interests of the United States.”

That, my fellow Americans, is a warning. For any American President to publicly identify another nation as a threat to our national security is a diplomatic shot across their bow.

According to intelligence reports some time still exists for a peaceful solution. “The United States and Israel both assess that Iran does not yet have a nuclear weapon, and we are exceedingly vigilant in monitoring their program… Iran’s leaders still have the opportunity to make the right decision,” the President said.

As the speech moved on, however, President Obama sent a clear message to Iran. Their time to change course is very short. That’s because Obama knows that Iran armed with nukes represents a clear and present danger to the American homeland.

In fact two years before Obama took office, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran boasted they would soon gain nuclear capabilities and threatened that when that day comes Muslim rage would shower waves of explosions on both America and Israel. It’s taken Obama four years, but he has apparently realized he’s dealing with a madman…a madman who is within a few weeks of getting nuclear bombs.

Regarding Israel’s close proximity to Iran the President said, “No Israeli government can tolerate a nuclear weapon in the hands of a regime that denies the Holocaust, threatens to wipe Israel off the map, and sponsors terrorist groups committed to Israel’s destruction.”

The President recognized that Iran has a thirty-year-history of antagonizing the U.S. and indicated little hope for a change in attitude.  “We all prefer to resolve this issue diplomatically,” he said, and then warned the world of what is soon to come:

“Iran’s leaders should have no doubt about the resolve of the United States…I have said that when it comes to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, I will take no options off the table, and I mean what I say. That includes all elements of American power… And as I’ve made clear time and again during the course of my presidency, I will not hesitate to use force when it is necessary to defend the United States and its interests.”

In the course of his three thousand word speech the President referred twenty-six times to actions his administration has taken to insure Israeli security. Using the words I, me, my, and our sixty-six times Mr. Obama pointed again and again to himself and his actions as the evidence of trustworthiness. The speech screamed out for Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel to give him a second chance after his pre-1967 borders debacle.

It was a clear attempt to get the Jewish vote for his re-election by reassuring these American supporters of Israel that the U.S. would not tolerate Iran’s nuclear threats of Israel, and that Obama has Israel’s back.

At least one prominent Israeli seemed unimpressed as the President finished. Immediately following the speech Fox News interviewed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s former Chief of Staff, Naftali Bennett.  He is an attorney who served as a company commander in Israel’s elite counter-terrorism unit, Sayerat Matkal, and maintains connections into the highest level Israeli intelligence. For the last two weeks he has warned that Iran will soon have nukes. “President Obama is talking with big words and carrying a twig,” Bennett said.

That’s the impression the Middle East has of our President, weakness…lots of words and skillful teleprompter reading. That moved the crowds in America for votes, but Israelis view the world differently. Where the war front is on the border of Israel, leaders have steel juevos or they don’t survive. As an elite Israeli commando, Naftali Bennett led his men from out in front under fire. He doesn’t care much about Obama’s words. He wants to know if Obama really has Israel’s back.
