Obama would rather ignore Netanyahu, but a prominent Saudi journalist says that Netanyahu is telling the truth and the American leader should heed his advice.
Faisal Abbas, editor-in-chief of the prominent Saudi Al-Arabiya newspaper begs to defer and urges US President Barack Obama to listen closely to what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to say – adding, however, that “it is extremely rare for any reasonable person to ever agree with anything Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says or does.”Abbas concedes, however, that “one must admit, Bibi did get it right, at least when it came to dealing with Iran.”
As Netanyahu stood in front of a bipartisan session of Congress on Tuesday, delivering his historic address on Iran’s nuclear threat, Obama was reportedly holding a conference call with European leaders to discuss the crisis in the Ukraine.
After reading the speech text, Obama responded by saying that Netanyahu said nothing new.
“In just a few words, Mr. Netanyahu managed to accurately summarize a clear and present danger, not just to Israel (which obviously is his concern), but to other U.S. allies in the region,” Abbas asserts.
“What is absurd, however, is that despite this being perhaps the only thing that brings together Arabs and Israelis (as it threatens them all), the only stakeholder that seems not to realize the danger of the situation is President Obama, who is now infamous for being the latest pen-pal of the Supreme Leader of the World’s biggest terrorist regime: Ayottallah Ali Khamenei.”
There are terrorists in other Arab countries, Abbas admits, but they are officially outlawed and in hiding. However, “the same, sadly, doesn’t apply to the terrorists of Iran; these are in uniform, hold government positions and are not bothering to hide their evil plots anymore!”
