Netanyahu Is Taking Off The Gloves over Obama’s Nuke Deal With Iran

Barack Obama, Benjamin Netanyahu

In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Benjamin Netanyahu was asked if he trusts Barack Obama. The Israeli Prime Minister, whose appearance on the show was centered around the Iran Nuclear deal, had a response that highlighted the naïveté of Obama.

President Obama’s campaign staff went to Israel in an attempt to unseat the Prime Minister in the recent election. Fresh off a win against Obama, Netanyahu was honest in his assessment of the President.

“I trust that the president is doing what he thinks is good for the United States. But I think that we can have a legitimate difference of opinion on this, because I think Iran has shown to be completely distrustful. It’s not a country that you can place your trust in. And it’s not a country that you’re going to resolve its congenital cheating. You’re not — you’re just not going to replace it by placing more inspectors there.

I think it’s not a question of personal trust. Of course we have a mutual respectful relationship. And I always respect both the presidency of the United States and this president of the United States. But, as the prime minister of the one and only Jewish state, when I see a country, a terrorist regime, committed to our destruction, and not only to our destruction, having the path, the clear path to the bomb, it’s my obligation to speak out, as I’m doing now, as I will do in any form. “

President Obama endorsed the nuclear deal with Iran claiming that it is better than the war. In dire contrast to Obama, Netanyahu said the only options are not “this bad deal or war.” He is encouraging increased sanctions and more talks to keep the pressure on Iran.

“I think there’s a third alternative, and that is standing firm, ratcheting up the pressure until you get a better deal.”


Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) came out in defense of President Obama saying that Netanyahu needed to “contain himself” even though his country is directly affected by the nuclear deal which he finds highly alarming.

During the talks, the Ayatollah led chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” after Friday prayers. This apparently did not cause much concern at the White House.

Do you believe Iran is distrustful? Why do you think Obama is siding with this nuclear deal with Iran rather than accept Netanyahu’s advice? Please comment below.
