ROMNEY – NETANYAHU 2012!
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed his good friend Mitt Romney to Jerusalem today.
The Prime Minister disputed the Obama Campaign’s talking points earlier in the day.
“All of the sanctions and diplomacy have not set back the Iranian nuclear program by one iota.”
This Morning, Obama Campaign Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs Claimed The Administration Has “Made Progress In Delaying” Iran’s Nuclear Program:
Obama Campaign Adviser Robert Gibbs: “We Have Made Progress In Delaying [Iran’s] Nuclear Program.” GIBBS: “We have made progress in delaying that nuclear program. And obviously, our goal, the world’s goal, is to prevent Iran from having a nuclear program and I think we’re making progress on that. Of course Israel has the right to defend itself.” (ABC’s “This Week,” 7/29/12)
But Prime Minister Netanyahu Said President Obama’s Policies Have “Not Set Back The Iranian Program By One Iota”:
But Prime Minister Netanyahu Says “All The Sanctions And Diplomacy So Far Have Not Set Back The Iranian Program By One Iota.” NETANYAHU: “We have to be honest and say that all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota. And that’s why I believe that we need a strong and credible military threat coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation.” (“Romney Voices Aggressive Stance Toward Iran,” The Associated Press, 7/29/12)
