Obama Slammed by Israel for Defending Iran Deal

Without Netanyahu’s approval, Israel Defense Ministry likens Obama to foolish pre-WWII leaders who coddled Hitler

By |

US President Barack Obama on Friday was once again insisting that his Iran nuclear deal is succeeding, and even claimed that Israel had acknowledged as much.

Israel’s Defense Ministry was quick to call out Obama’s false assertion, and to suggest the American was a fool if he still believed Iran to be a genuine partner.

“The Israeli defense establishment believes that agreements have value only if they are based on an existing reality, and that they have no value if the facts on the ground are completely the opposite of [the concepts] on which an agreement is based on,” read the Israeli Defense Ministry statement.

The Israelis went on to liken Obama’s Iran deal to the utterly nonsensical Munich agreement that failed to prevent World War II and permitted the Nazis to launch their initial assaults unimpeded.

“The Munich agreement did not prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust, precisely because their basic assumption, that Nazi Germany could be a partner to any kind of agreement, was wrong, and because the leaders of the world at that time ignored the explicit statements by Hitler and the rest of the leaders of Nazi Germany.”

The Defense Ministry noted that Iran’s leaders continue to threaten Israel and other nations in the region, and Tehran continues to be the world’s leading state sponsor of Islamic terror, as reported by the US State Department.

As such, Obama’s coddling of the ayatollahs is doing more harm than good, just as the kid-glove handling of Hitler ultimately led to the destruction of a continent and the deaths of millions.

The response caused some panic for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not made aware of the Defense Ministry statement before it was published.

According to government officials, Netanyahu quickly phoned US Ambassador Dan Shapiro to downplay the harsh rhetoric, and to reassert that despite disagreement over the Iran deal, Israel still sees America as its greatest ally.
