So nice to know U.S. has Israel’s back. Oh wait, it doesn’t

WND reports: TEL AVIV – According to informed Middle Eastern security officials, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel delivered a strongly worded message to Israel – do not attack Iran.

The officials told WND that Hagel informed the Israeli government the Obama administration will not accept any unilateral Israeli attack against Iran and that Israel must not strike Tehran without coordination with the U.S.

Hagel further told Israel that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cannot decide alone whether Iran has crossed the nuclear threshold, or the so-called Red Line previously outlined by the Israeli leader.

In a speech at the United Nations in September, Netanyahu drew a red line on a drawing of a bomb, depicting the point where he said Iran will have enough medium-enriched uranium to move rapidly toward building a nuclear bomb. Continue reading

    Obama –what is his plan? His agenda has never been to help make a safer world or to protect the US or the rest of the world, particularly allies. He seems to protect America’s enemies and the enemies of peace. He chose Hagel exactly because Hagel is a strange man with bizarre ideas who would follow directions without question and morals. Under Obama, Israel needs to know that the US is not an ally.

    Things like this make it hard to be “proud to be an American” and “proud to be Jewish and pro-Israel” simultaneously. I am so tired of the double talk..We all know that if the security of America was in question, nobody from the White House is calling to ask permission first before fighting back, so expecting Israel to do the same thing is ridiculous. One bomb can take out the country for crying out loud. That is no time to be having a strategy conversation. Besides, to be technical about it, Israel has already told the US their plan. It’s not like Israel is going to pull the war card out of their ass on a whim…I always thought political allies were supposed to have each others backs because you trust that they will make decisions in the best interest of said country when danger strikes. Silly me…

      Erin, I think that every country’s leaders put their own interests above any other, but in this case, it seems that the concerns of Israel and the rest of the world should be aligned. Iran is a threat to the free world, and so is radical Islam, but there are certainly those who do not believe that.
      I do not trust Obama at all or any of the US bureaucracies such as the FBI, State Department bureacracies or the DHS.

      I hear ya, Erin. As Lynne points out, it isn’t just Israel at risk from Iran but the U.S. and other countries as well. Just looking at how the U.S. is now ignoring its own ‘red line’ on the use of chemical warfare in Syria, the very explosive information coming out on Benghazi (and that is about to get a lot more explosive it seems), Fast and Furious, refusing to secure borders, the intelligence actions on the Boston bombers and others before the attacks and attempted attacks not to mention Holder mirandizing the surviving bomber to make sure no information could be gleaned from him just 16 hours into the 48 hours the investigators were supposed to have, attacks on the Second Amendment and the stockpiling of ammunition to be used against domestic targets, and then the economic measures being taken, to name just a few things, one would really think that the Obama admin is out to destroy the U.S., if not from without, from within and make sure its allies go down as well.

    OFFTOPIC:
    Does anyone know what happened to Sandmonkey’s blog? During the last few days, each time I check it I see the following message:

    “Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later.”

      TddPirate, I have been worried about the Sandmonkey for a long time. It is not safe in Egypt to blog as he has done. I have suggested numerous times that he leave Egypt right now (and come to Texas!). I hope that he is safe. It may be that he has himself decided it’s hopeless to try to enlighten folks.

    Another evil Muslim deed in Israel committed by another Muslim!!! This Israeli, father of 5 children, was murdered only because he was a Jew!!!
    Read “Eviatar Borovsky laid to rest” at http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4374379,00.html

    One by one, no matter how long it will take, the Israeli Jews living on the Land of Israel will be murdered AS LONG AS Israel keeps accepting to have in its midst these Muslim murderers!!! That is the reality LONG-TERM.
    I know that for many Israelis and even many liberal Jews, it is a taboo subject but that is the sad reality long-term.

    The solution: EXPULSION of all the Muslims living in Israel, including the Muslims living inside Israel as well as those living in Gaza and the West Bank!!!
    ONLY THEN will the murders of Israeli Jews on their ancestral land be eradicated once and for all, FOREVER!!! Any other placebo solution will NOT do anything to change this daily fact that Israeli Jews are regularly murdered by Muslims on the Land of Israel.

  5. WipeOutHamasOnceAndForAll says :

    About the solution that I have been advocating on this blog for eons: to expulse ALL the Muslims living not only in Israel but also in Gaza and in the West Bank, most people probably see “my solution” as a manifestation of hate against Muslims or of racism against Muslims. The truth is that I love so much the Jewish people that I would be ready to implement this solution if I was PM of Israel at the very first instance of a similar murder. Right away, you know, explaining that it was the drop of blood that overflowed the ocean of murders that the Israelis have had to bear for many decades, even long before the official creation of the State of Israel!!

    The truth is that I do not have hate against any people on Earth. Hate requires a lot of efforts and hard work for me to be put in place in my heart and in my mind. I found that I have a hard time to hate, even though from time to time when I read an atrocious story of children murdered by an evil Muslim like it happened for instance for the Itamar massacre, at that time I did have a short moment of hate against these evil Muslim murderers. Now, these evil Muslim Itamar murderers are in a vacation in an Israeli jail with TV, books, fully fed and even with the possibility to have the Israeli taxpayers finance their study for a degree!!! Is it Justice for the Itamar massacre?!!!! These Muslim Itamar murderers should have been burnt to death as an example in front of a Muslim village!!! That is my kind of Justice, not the treatment that they have received for their evil acts.

    The truth is that my solution is based only on a very strong love for the Jewish people that forces me to be hurt each time one Jew is murdered in the conditions of hate that have occurred recently with this father of five children who was murdered only because he looks like a religious Jew.
    It is even more painful when such a murder is done on the ancestral land of Israel where King David once rode his horse and King Shlomo too.
    Therefore, do not be mistaken by believing that I am another hater of Muslims or Arabs, not that the many evil Muslim deeds not only against Israelis or Jews or even Christians would not deserve, justify a lot of hate in many respects.

    BUT the truth is that my solution is in fact based mainly on the reality on the ground, on the facts related to the Muslims and their hate of the State of Israel, hate of the Israeli Jews and hate of the Jews.
    The Muslims’ hate is mainly a religious hate based directly on the evil deeds of the bogus “prophet” Mohammed against Jews when he murdered several Jewish tribes near the Mecca and the many statements against Jews that are written directly on the Koran. Such hate cannot be erased with peace treaties or a new Palestinian state!!!!
    This simple awareness has convinced me, using simple common sense, that unless the State of Israel implement my solution, unless this drastic and indispensable action is put into reality, then the Israeli Jews will be murdered, one by one, by whatever means used by the Muslims living in Israel, in Gaza (rockets) and in the West Bank. And it will NEVER EVER stop until an Israeli with basic common sense like me will say: “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”, it is time to go separate ways, you the Muslims back to where you came from that is back to the surrounding countries around the Land of Israel that the current Muslims living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank came from (their parents and grandparents) and the Israelis at last free to live among themselves without the evil Muslims living in their midst on their ancestral Land of Israel.

    Let me be very clear with the Utopian peace lovers reading this blog. NO PEACE TREATY OF ANY KIND (EVEN IF THERE WOULD BE A PALESTINIAN STATE IN GAZA AND THE WEST BANK!!), NO PEACE TREATY OF ANY KIND WOULD EVER STOP THE REGULAR MURDERS OF ISRAELI JEWS BY MUSLIMS.
    On this matter, the failed Oslo agreements and the Israelis’ withdrawal from Gaza have proved this point many times but even with a Palestinian state, it would not change the situation at all, only worsen it in the long-term for many obvious reasons that I have previously explained in details on this blog. The Palestinian state being only a Trojan Horse, a stepping-stone to implement the final solution this time against the Israelis!!

    To conclude, even though I would like to be dishonest with you, readers of Yael’s blog by showering you with grandiose Utopian promises of long-term peace, the truth is that I have to be fully honest with you and tell you the reality the way it is by giving you the only solution that will work LONG-TERM AND FOREVER for the State of Israel that is the expulsion of ALL the Muslim inhabitants living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank (and I leave the problem of Jordan aside in these comments, as I spoke of Jordan previously on this blog!!).
    For the sake of a single Israeli Jew, if I was PM of Israel, I would go to the United Nations and tell the world that “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH” and clearly put the United Nations on notice that Israel will expulse ALL the Muslims living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank forever, as did the Arab countries at the creation of the State of Israel with their Jews!!!

      Wipe Out, you are passionate about your support of Israel. It seems at times that all Muslims hate the Jewish people, but that is not the case. As in many situations, it is the loud, shrill voices of hatred that dominate and it may seem that means there is a majority of people that feel a certain way. Remember that there are many Muslims in Israel who support Israel and who get along well with their Jewish neighbors. There are Arab-Israelis who serve with honor and distinction in the military. It’s very disappointing to me when I hear of Arab-Israelis who hate Israel, because they are not thinking clearly of the life they have in Israel and all the advantages and opportunities. They have false consciousness and do not know their own interests. But just as it is the case everywhere, there are all kinds of people in Israel —good and bad.
