The U.S. Doesn’t Need Frenemies

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to Democratic congressmen: “I won’t tell you how to vote on Iran deal”. This Statement by the Israeli leader is at the height of arrogance and is an insult to our governmental leaders. U.S. elected officials pledged their allegiance to the United States of America, not to Israel. If there are any questions as to whom our elected officials pledge allegiance to, we as Americans must know right now! Any decision made by any elected official must be, first and foremost, in the interest of the American people and our government.

Fact: 29 American nuclear scientists, Nobel laureates and physicists with Q clearance, who have access to top secret atomic information, have hailed the recent nuclear deal with Iran, saying that it provides a basis to curb proliferation in the Middle East and globally. ( Additionally, many Israeli ex-generals and former security chiefs have signed a petition urging Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to accept the nuclear deal between world powers and Iran.

The truth of the matter is Israeli leaders and their supporters in the U.S and others around the world are trying to convince as many Democratic congressmen as possible to oppose the nuclear deal and, essentially, vote against the United States. President Obama clearly believes that Netanyahu’s interference in U.S. domestic and foreign affairs is “unprecedented”.

I fully agree with President Obama’s his assessment; however, at this critical moment in history, the U.S. doesn’t need Frenemies, we need allies that will stand strong with us. If I had an opportunity to speak to Israeli leaders and their supporters regarding this issue; I would tell them that the U.S. is and has consistently been their strongest supporter. As far as the Iranian Nuclear issue is concern, they need to join us because we are on the right side of history.
