President Obama: Weakened Israel Would Be Failure For Presidency

Zechariah 12:3 “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

President Obama gave an interview to the New York Times that was published Sunday saying that he would consider it a failure if the nation of Israel was more vulnerable because of his actions as president.

“Look, Israel is a robust, rowdy democracy. … We share so much. We share blood, family. … And part of what has always made the U.S.-Israeli relationship so special is that it has transcended party, and I think that has to be preserved,” the President told the Times’ Thomas Friedman.  “There has to be the ability for me to disagree with a policy on settlements, for example, without being viewed as … opposing Israel. There has to be a way for Prime Minister Netanyahu to disagree with me on policy without being viewed as anti-Democrat, and I think the right way to do it is to recognize that as many commonalities as we have, there are going to be strategic differences. And I think that it is important for each side to respect the debate that takes place in the other country and not try to work just with one side. … But this has been as hard as anything I do because of the deep affinities that I feel for the Israeli people and for the Jewish people. It’s been a hard period.”

The President even said he took things personally when people would comment he and his administration were trying to undermine Israel.

“It has been personally difficult for me to hear … expressions that somehow … this administration has not done everything it could to look out for Israel’s interest — and the suggestion that when we have very serious policy differences, that that’s not in the context of a deep and abiding friendship and concern and understanding of the threats that the Jewish people have faced historically and continue to face,” the President said.

The agreement has been met with scathing criticism from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who says the deal paves the way for Iran to have a nuclear bomb.  Netanyahu also alluded to the idea that the deal was not done with Israel’s interested in mind.

President Obama acknowledged that Netanyahu and the Israeli people “have every right to be concerned about Iran. This is a regime that at the highest levels has expressed the desire to destroy Israel, that has denied the Holocaust, that has expressed venomous anti-Semitic ideas and is a big country with a big population and has a sophisticated military. So Israel is right to be concerned about Iran, and they should be absolutely concerned that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.”

The President continued to say the United States’ interest in the region is not oil but rather that all nations in the area live together in peace.

  1. Wake up America ! If we don’t Repent, we are will experience the Judgement of God for murdering 56 million babies, promoting sodomy, & casting God out of our schools & public places. obama is a muslim terrorist with a pen & phone. muslims hate Jews & Christians. He may be able to destroy America, BUT, he will Never destroy Israel. They have God on their side.

  2. ~ This is the truth ~

    Iranian Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif, expressed astonishment that some members of US Congress find it appropriate to write to leaders of another country against their own President and administration. “It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history.”

    “This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content. I admit I felt quite a bit of schadenfreude as I read the words of this obviously intelligent and well read man lecturing these moronic Republicans about their own country’s constitution and international law. It seems that the letter authors, unlike President Obama and Secretary Kerry not only do not understand international law, but are not fully cognizant of the nuances of their own Constitution when it comes to presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy. I should bring one important very point to the attention of the authors and that is, the world is not the United States, and true *conduct* of the inter-state relations is *only* governed by the international law, and not by US domestic law.

    “Unlike President Obama and Secretary Kerry, the letter authors, may not fully understand that in international law, governments represent the entirety of their respective states, and are then responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs, are required to fulfill the obligations they undertake with other states and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations.”

    “If the current negotiation with P5+1 result in a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, it will not be a bilateral agreement between Iran and the US, but rather one that will be concluded with the participation of five other countries, including all permanent members of the Security Council, and will also be endorsed by a Security Council resolution and not by the United States or authors of this letter, these moronic Republicans who don’t even understand about their own country’s constitution and international law.”

  3. We all need to keep praying protection for Israel. I believe whateve deal they came up with should of included protecting Israel, our countriy and other countires.
    Why is Iran making a nuclear bomb in the first place? Countries have given them supplies to do this and what are they going to do with it once it is build completely? The president is trusting Iran with a weak deal and to take off sanctions? Forget that! Iran will do whatever they want once that thing is complete and they won’t even care about any sanctions put upon them after they have the nuke. Can somebody tell me where I can find these answers? I am glad I am not president because I would sweep every country with violence and disarm them, take all of their weapons, United States would be the only country that would be allowed to have weapons. That’s the way it should be. lol

  4. Let’s not speak with fork tongue. Say what you mean and mean what you say….no double talking…Please continue to pray for President Obama….Love
