On “60 Minutes” tonight Barack Obama described Israel’s concerns over Iranian nukes – “Noise.”
But he cares about Israel.
There’s more… Obama also referred to Israel as merely: “ONE Of Our Closest Allies In The Region.”
OBAMA: “Now I feel an obligation, not pressure but obligation, to make sure that we’re in close consultation with the Israelis– on these issues. Because it affects them deeply. They’re one of our closest allies in the region. And we’ve got an Iranian regime that has said horrible things that directly threaten Israel’s existence.” (CBS’s “60 Minutes,” 9/23/12)
UPDATE: Now get this… Ahmadinejad says the same thing as Obama.
Interestingly, in an interview with the Washington Post’s David Ignatius published today, Iran’s anti-Semitic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used exactly the same term when describing concerns that the Israelis have raised over the country’s nuclear program.
IGNATIUS: “I want to ask as my first question the one every citizen of the world would like to ask today: What is the chance of a war in Iran that would result from an Israeli attack on your nuclear facilities?”
AHMADINEJAD: “I have spoken about this topic at length, previously. We generally speaking do not take very seriously the issue of the Zionists and the possible dangers emanating from them. Of course they would love to find a way for their own salvation by making a lot of noise and to raise stakes in order to save themselves.
