President Obama & Hillary Clinton – No Red Lines On Iran
One wonders if President Obama & Hillary Clinton missed the lesson about a carrot and a stick. One wonders who is being served by not “setting red lines.” A terrorist speaks of destroying a democratic nation – shouldn’t there be “red lines?”
Prime Minister Netanyahu responded quickly: “The world is telling Israel to wait on Iran because there is time and I ask, ‘Wait for what? Wait for when? Clearly, diplomacy and sanctions didn’t work. Every day that passes brings Iran closer to a nuclear bomb and that’s a fact. Those who refuse to draw red line to Iran don’t have the moral right to put a red line to Israel.”
As Likud MK Danny Danon said: “Hillary Clinton’s words on not setting red lines for the Iranians are a slap in the face to the State of Israel. This irresponsibility in handing the Iranian issue is dangerous to the Western world. On the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, there is a need to issue clear lines to the Iranians, who are threatening the entire Western world.”
Interestingly, Danon released a new book discussing the Israel-American relationship entitled: “Israel: The Will to Prevail” which can be purchased at: http://www.amazon.com/Israel-
Netanyahu’s father would be proud of him, as he was a follower of the great Zionist thinker Ze’ev Jabotinsky, who in 1911 wrote an essay called “Instead of Excessive Apology”: “We are not to sit for anybody’s examination and nobody is old enough to call on us to answer. We came before them and will leave after them. We are what we are we are good for ourselves…”
Ze’ev Jabotinsky said the Jewish people “do not have to account to anybody” – and Netanyahu today said the same thing. One would hope that there are indeed red lines for murderers, and it’s shameful the Obama administration doesn’t make it clearer to Iran that a nuclear bomb is unacceptable.
