Barack Obama with Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office (5-18-09)

(Worthy News) - President Barack Obama on Wednesday said Israel was the only country to object to the Iran nuclear deal, opposition he said was 'sincere' but 'wrong,' the Times of Israel reported.

In an address to the American University in Washington, Obama said the Iran deal was "the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated. And because it's such a strong deal, every nation in the world that has commented publicly, with the exception of the Israeli government, has expressed support."

The UN Security Council has "unanimously supported it," Obama added, as well as over "100 former ambassadors who served under Democratic and Republican presidents."

"I've had to make a lot of tough calls as president. But whether or not this deal is good for American security, this isn't a hard one, it isn't even close," he said. [ Source ]

Netanyahu is sincere but 'wrong'

"I don't doubt Netanyahu's sincerity but I think he is wrong,” the president said, noting that "with the exception of Israel, every country supports the agreement," as do the United Nations Security Council and other international agencies.

"To the Israeli people I say this: Nuclear-armed Iran is more dangerous than an Iran that benefits from sanction relief," the president stated. He added that he was "ready to discuss upgrading Israeli defense capabilities.

Addressing the argument of opponents of the agreement that a better deal was possible, Obama said that they were right. "Walk away and you will get a better deal – for Iran." [ Source ]

  1. I think our President has lost his mind, much like Nero did, but he won't fiddle while America burns, but the world. If our military leaders had any sense, they would have his mental status investigated as well as Congress. They need to step in. He really is loosing his mind.

  2. Obama is following his agenda. Eventually all nations will rise up against Israel through the deception. This is just one of the dominoes being set up for the final attack against God and His people.

    " Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon."

  3. Just because the republicans were wrong about Iraq and the presence of weapons of mass destruction, does not mean they are wrong about everything. And in this particular case, they are right. Iran is not the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was a developed industrial nation, run by European bureaucrats. Even though the Soviet Union scared the West with its nuclear brinkmanship, there was probably never any real threat that they would actually push the button. Iran is an underdeveloped Central Asian Muslim theocracy, run by a cadre of unpredictable religious despots who would dream of few things more than pushing the button on Israel. So we are really talking about apples and oranges when the President tries to compare negotiating with the Soviet Union as somehow similar to negotiating with Iran. Beware. We are forging a relationship with truly evil men. And if the defeat of this agreement means regional war, at least it will be conventional war, not nuclear war. An important distinction.
