With so much that must be done at home in the United States, why does America send so much of its resources to Israel? It’s a fair question, but according to U.S. Gen Chuck Wald, America doesn’t spend enough on Israel. Watch to understand why.
The following is a script from “Benjamin Netanyahu,” which aired on 60 Minutes, Dec. 11, 2016. Lesley Stahl is the correspondent. Shachar Bar-On and Alexandra Poolos, producers.
On our recent trip to Jerusalem, we found a surprisingly optimistic Benjamin Netanyahu, who has served the longest stretch as prime minister in Israel’s history. He told us his country has never felt as secure or less isolated. But it’s been a tumultuous eight years between Israel and the U.S. over the Iran nuclear deal and the expansion of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. So part of his optimism relates to the election in the U.S. Netanyahu and his followers on the Israeli right, are greeting the idea of President Donald Trump with a resounding l’chaim.
Benjamin Netanyahu: I know Donald Trump. I know him very well. And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There’s no question about that.
Lesley Stahl: With Trump, do you think that Israel will not be as at odds with the United States as you have been under the Obama administration?
Benjamin Netanyahu: Yeah, we had differences of opinion with– I had differences of opinion with President Obama and most well-known, of course, is Iran.
A group of Iraq war veterans has launched a powerful campaign opposing President Obama’s surrender to a nuclear Iran.
The Iran deal will unfreeze billions of dollars that Iran will use for terrorism. Tell your Senator: No money for Iranian terror. No deal for Iran. For more visit: www.VetsAgainstDeal.com.
The entire melt-down between Obama and Netanyahu has been cynically manufactured by the White House in order to allow Obama to implement his delusional secret Iranian strategy.
An earlier version of this article misstated when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel accepted Speaker John A. Boehner’s invitation to address Congress. He accepted after the administration had been informed of the invitation, not before.
In short, the White House was properly informed of the invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu. But Obama offered no objection until he decided that the time was ripe to slander him.
And of course, the usual liberal Jews — stalking horses for the Democrat party — are chiming in like a bunch of eager-to-please court eunuchs.
Melanie Phillips, who defines herself as a liberal who has “been mugged by reality” takes on Obama and his disgraceful enablers.
It was inevitable.
Stepping into the snake pit that is the IslamoNazi war against Judaism/Israel, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry managed a unique feat: He united three rival Islamist war criminal networks who despise each other: The PA, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, an Iranian terror proxy.
