Bolton: Obama is Resigned to Nuclear Iran


john-boltonFormer US ambassador to the UN John Bolton expressed concern today that Washington was coming to terms with a nuclear Iran. “I very much worry the Obama administration is willing to accept a nuclear Iran, that’s why there’s this extraordinary pressure on Israel not to attack in Iran,” Bolton told Army Radio.

The former envoy claimed that this pressure was the focus of last week’s meetings in Washington between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhau and US officials, including President Barack Obama.

Bolton said that the Obama administration had embraced the view, prevalent in Europe, that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the key to the resolution of all other conflicts throughout the Middle East, including the Iranian conflict.

He added that the rift in US-Israel relations stemmed from a fundamental difference in the understanding of the Middle East and Israel’s role in the Middle East, and is not really about east Jerusalem at all.

Bolton said that the treatment Netanyahu received during his visit “should tell the people of Israel how difficult it’s going to be dealing with Washington for the next couple of years.”

  1. Let’s be blunt.

    Iran has nuclear facilities deep underground, according to all reports.

    There is no way to stop them militarily short of a nuclear first strike.

    The United States has no trade with Iran, and so cannot impose additional sanctions without the consent of Russia and China, neither of whom are inclined to support them.

  2. I assume everyone knows by now who backs Obama and is actually encouraging him to persue this approach, where israel is to blame for all the problems in the middle east, (sounds a little tiny bit like germany 1938) well its this new orginization called J-street basically a huge group of yidishi amei haratzim that dont even know what our connection to yerushalyim is, and so they of course tell Obama how israel-jews are to blame for the middle eastern conflicts, mind you the problems of the world are also blamed on the jews, by many sick people, but hey just allow your am haratzis to persue and claim to speak for the jewish people. They are eiriv rav and make meretz look like charedim, with their extreme am haratzisdigi views.

  3. Obama will do nothing to hurt arab interests. He is the prefident towards Israel and is clearly meant to be indicating to us that only by turning to Hakodosh Boruch Hu can we expect to be saved.

    We must all have greater kavono in the beracha in Shmona Esrai of V’Lirushalyim Ircha and in the birchas hashachar of Shelo Asani Aved.
