Netanyahu says US may not act against Iran

By Daniel Estrin

JERUSALEM (AP) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has suggested that Israel cannot rely on the U.S. to act against Iran's suspect nuclear program.

In an interview published Friday, Netanyahu hinted Israel may have to strike Iran even without U.S. support to prevent Tehran from building a nuclear weapon.

The comments indicate Netanyahu is not backing down from his thinly-veiled criticism of the Obama administration, despite a phone call from the U.S. president this week that was meant to smooth over their differences.

In the interview in Israel Hayom, a daily that is a staunch backer of the premier, Netanyahu says he has heard those "who say we should wait until the last minute."

Then, he asks: "But what if the U.S. doesn't act?"

Iran denies it is seeking a nuclear bomb.

    Don’t expect any action against Iran by the US so long as Obozo sits at 1600 Pennsylvania. With the leadership change coming on November 6th, we can expect to see some action against Tehran.

    Of course obama won’t act against Iran; obama’s closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, is a slum lord born in Iran. obama is weak and the entire world knows it.

    I think its a mistake to consider Obama weak or incompetent. I think he knows what he is doing and going about it quite well. Read Dinesh D’Souza’s book thoroughly and I think you will get a greater insight into this traitor Hussein Obozo.

    Israel, if it feels truly threatened, should go ahead and take out the Iranian nuclear program just as it did Iraq’s.

    NEVER ever mentioned, is that Israel is a NUCLEAR POWER, with an estimated 200 or so nuclear weapons. IF they need to use a nuclear bomb, we should not blink an eye. It is not if they are going to nuke a city like we did twice. If Iran wants to play in the big boy nuclear sand box, it should not be surprised by an attack by Israel, nuclear or otherwise.

    If they need, Bunker Busters, we have been dabbling with such tech for decades. SELL Israel some, with Gods Speed blessings.

    Yet, Obama seems incapable of doing even this, but is very capable of yucking it up with David Letterman, or Viva Las Vegas ra ra rallies. Bizarre and expected. What is not expected and is bizarre, just how many Israel fans, are backing Obama.

    Islam is the greatest source of evil on the face of the Earth. And they are not really rational. They are a 6th century barbaric savages. By their fruits you will know them. Murder, Death, Destruction. Slavery and Terror is all they leave in their wake. I could not think of a better analogy than Evil straight from Hell with their Apostle leading the way. If they strike Israel, I hope Israel rids the whole earth of that tribe of Islam savages.

    With all this #$@$!%#@ caused by Ocrama I’m going to have to give the Mayan Calendar theory a look-see. Something’s gotta give!
