Israelis See Obama’s Speech as a Green Light for Iranian Rockets

They have a point…
Obama delivers remarks on a nuclear deal with Iran at American University in Washington
The Israeli National News pointed out this morning that in his speech yesterday at the American University in Washington, “Obama told U.S. Jewish leaders it was likely rockets would fall on Tel Aviv if the nuclear deal was blocked and military action ensued.” Statements like this amount to dangerous verbal hostage-taking as Congress considers the Administration’s Iran deal. Saying outright that rockets would fly if Congress fails to do what he wants is nothing more than a threat, and Israeli writers like former New Yorker Batya Medad see that for what it is. In her words and the words of the INN editors, Obama was “justifying” Iranian hostilities before the fact, and giving them a clear “green light.” She adds: “… it’s very clear that the Obama government trusts and likes Iran and its leaders a lot more than it likes Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu.” Indeed.

Meanwhile, as John Kerry decides whether he thinks Iran is serious about annihilating Israel, Israel diplomatic channels were busy this morning informing the US Congress about satellite photos indicating that Iran is sanitizing the suspected nuclear military site at Parchin, in broad daylight, even as the accord was being signed days ago.
