Transcript:

DICKERSON: I know you’re talking to lots of people. You’re talking to us, obviously. Will you lobbying members of Congress against this deal? NETANYAHU: Look, I feel it’s my obligation as the prime minister of Israel to speak out against something that endangers the survival of my country, the security of the region, the security of the world.

And I obviously make my case. I think that is important. It’s not only important for us. I think it’s important for the entire world.

DICKERSON: You have said that this is a catastrophic and historic mistake. President Obama once said that he had Israel’s back. Do you think that he’s betrayed you here with this deal?

NETANYAHU: Look, I appreciate President Obama and the United States’ ongoing commitment to Israel’s security.

That’s always something that’s important. But this deal, on this, we have a disagreement, an honest disagreement, a respectful disagreement among friends. I think that people say, well, everybody agrees with this deal except Israel. Not true.

Netanyahu’s behavior is a continuation of his treasonous relationship with Congressional Republicans. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell aren’t acting in the best interests of the American people by opposing this deal. Boehner and McConnell are pushing the pro-war agenda of Netanyahu.

The Republican Party is actively working with a foreign agent against the foreign policy of the President Of The United States. Republicans have no alternative plan to keep Iran from developing their own nuclear weapon that does not involve war.

Netanyahu admitted that he is “lobbying” members of Congress, and by lobbying he meant conspiring. For a Republican Party that many though could go no lower, this is a new low.

  1. I wonder if the leader of a foreign nation has ever lobbied the Congress of the U.S. to oppose the POTUS prior to this. I have no idea, but it seems improper.

  2. What the President needs to do is just go before the American public and say Israel wants your sons and daughters to die to save his government. That is all

  3. This is a crime of the American media to continue to put this warmonger on just to beat the drums of war. Where are the ministers of the other countries that actually negotiated this historic deal?

    Don’t we as the American public deserve to hear from at least 2 of our allies Great Britain and France who shed blood helping to defend the United States unlike Israel.

    Yesterday I posted an article on J Street a Jewish Org that wants peace tp succeed . Why arnt they being interviewed ? http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/jewish-groups-gird-for-epic-battle-over-iran-deal/2015/07/17/c5ff0f2c-2bf6-11e5-a5ea-cf74396e59ec_story.html?hpid=z2

    People better wake up! I saw this play back during the Iraq War and they are doing it again, THE SELLING OF THE GREAT WAR FOR LITTLE TRUTH NO JUSTICE AND SOME PISS ASS IDEA OF THE AMERICAN WAY

  4. I appreciate President Obama and the United States’ ongoing commitment to Israel’s security.

    But that’s not gonna stop me from stabbing Obama in the back and attempting to start another unnecessary war.

    I concur with Djchefron. It’s time to ween Israel off of our Tax Dollars. If the Republicans love Israel so much- let them emigrate there.

  5. Something John Fugelsang said the other day about this
    Iran deal stuck with me.”People who have nothing to
    offer but fear don’t like it when there’s less fear.” He
    pretty much summed it up concerning the merchants of
    war and whiny repugs.

  6. The Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu can co-conspire with Republicans to kill this deal. What the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu doesn’t seem to understand is that there isn’t a damn thing he, or they, can do to stop it.

    The President may have told the Republican congress that they can have a say in this agreement, what he didn’t tell them that their say would be advisory only.

    Only the President has constitutional authority to negotiate agreements with foreign countries. Congress can say what they want and the President can ignore it.

    I, too, concur with Djchefron. Its time to show the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that HE is dependent on OUR goodwill and NOT visa versa. We could use the money being sent to him right here at home rather than waste it on a country that seems to feel we owe them something.

    We sure as hell do NOT owe him our husband’s, mother’s, son’s and daughter’s blood for his incessant wars.

  7. Obama is more concerned about the security needs of the American people — and attaining peaceful diplomatic solutions to foreign policy problems — than he is about the political desires of Bibi’s administration … as he should be.

    Which begs the question: where exactly do the loyalties of these hawkish Congressional Republicans lie?

  8. John Bouhner needs to be INDITED,TRIED AND CONVICTED for his Unamerican treachory,,The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) is a United States federal lawthat forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.
    The Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments.[1]
    In 1984, President Ronald Reagan stated that the activities of the Reverend Jesse Jackson, who had traveled to Cuba and Nicaragua that year and had returned with several Cuban political prisoners seeking asylum in the United States, may have violated the Logan Act; but Jackson was never indicted.[1]
    In 1987 and 1988, President Reagan was furious at what he felt to be House Speaker Jim Wright’s “intrusi…

  9. The really sad about the whole situation is that the American people know what the repugs are doing and nobody in our government has the balls to call them on it. Treason is treason! If an average citizens did what they are doing they would be the first ones to want treason charges brought forth. The only way the are going to learn that just because of their hatred of our President is no reason for treasonous acts.
    Wake up people the GOP are worthless and would rather destroy this country than to compromise. If they refuse to defend our country, then let’s force them to defend themselves to the American public.

  10. Well Dan, sure wished we could do something about this. I’m told the key words are “forbids unauthorized citizens.” John Bouhner since he’s the 3rd person to the POTUS, makes him authorized.

  11. Since when did Netanyahu and his people pay taxes to the US?
    I did not know that we pay taxes to serve Netanyahu, and our government was here to be
    puppets for this man. He has no shame in taking our tax dollars while we have hungry children here, we could feed many of them with the amount this idiot spends on personal food and wine for his home.

  12. Netanyahu Wants Another “New Pearl Harbor”

    “The PNAC project set up by the men who surround George W Bush who said what America needed was “A New Pearl Harbor.” Its published aims have, alarmingly, come true.

    By John Pilger

    The threat posed by US terrorism to the security of nations and individuals was outlined in prophetic detail in a document disclosed only recently.
    PNAC wrote what was needed for America to dominate much of humanity and the world’s resources was “some Catastrophic and Catalysing Event – like A New Pearl Harbor”. The attacks of 11 September 2001 provided the “new Pearl Harbor”, described as “The Opportunity of Ages”.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Century

  13. Perhaps it is time that we re-examine just how special our special relationship is with this country that wants to take our money and then trash talk about us on the teevee.
    I agree with the sentiment that they should recognize that they are a lot more dependent on us than we are on them.

  14. I think the reason the other nations involved haven’t spoken up is because they know if they do, and the American people vote in a member of the GOPT as President, they’ll be on the bomb, bomb, bomb list.

    Just a thought.

  15. No. We are not being Anti-semite. We are being anti-asshole.

    If Israel wishes to continue to bite the hand that helps feed it, it needs to kick the Netan-Yahoo out on his keister.

  16. Well if God can be counted on to help Israel defeat it’s enemies, then they don’t need our help. It’s that simple. Apropos all of the butt-munching pro-semites.

  17. Even if the U.S. congress votes to veto, there are other countries at the bargaining table that Congress has no influence over.

    And I too think it’s Bibi taking lot for granted bad-mouthing our POTUS and our policies. He has no say in what the U.S. does and should keep his big mouth shut. If he wants to go to war, he can do it with his own people and money.

  18. This makes my blood boil. Netanyahu is a whiny little ass who has greatly diminished Israel in America’s eyes. Many more of us are aware of the amount of aid we have supplied and do not like the disrespect shown to President Obama in return. We need to reconsider the money and support that has propped them up for decades.

    And repugs are totally despicable.

  19. NO Alexander, we are not anti-Semite but PRO American. We give millions to Isreal every year while NOT taking care of our own…Netnyahoo has no business in our Gov…No one has ever cast a vote for him here. He is a taker NOT a giver. Take with one hand stab in the back with the other.

  20. …note to Clinton Alexander and other Koch-suckers…
    …back in 1983 I was in the M.E., we took liberty at Haifa Israel…even then the Likud and Nutty-Yoyo were spouting thier eternal war shit…in my logs from that period I had written that they sounded like psychotic assholes…
    Remember one thing: Israel needs us; we do NOT need Israel; if the “Republican Senator from Israel” wants to conspire with our traitors it will be remembered; and thier funding will start being decreased rapidly…
    …we here on Politicus are not Anti-Semite…assholes like you are…

  21. How can two votes be against this comment? I do not understand how? the words of this women are true. Thank you Patricia for words of wisdom.
    Our son’s and daughters are not born to fight and give all to Netnyahoooo.

  22. I still contend that Israel is lazy as all hell. If they want to fight Iran over their nuclear weapons, why don’t they do it?

    Why do they have to drag us into their fight? We want peace, not war.

    Oh and Netanyahu isn’t a Senator or a Representative of this country. Therefore, his opinion should be considered null and void because of that alone.

  23. funny how just above you said the opposite and called someone who said exactly this an “anti-Semite”? thus proving you don’t know what a Semite is. looking to get some up-votes to off-set all the downs you got for that little piece of stupid you offered?

  24. How much is he paying each republican to vote NO on the deal? Does the money come from the aid from the US taxpayers? When will Bibi do HIS share of peacemaking, rather than warmongering? He is the most dangerous demigod in the area, bar none,. He has a boatload of weapons, thanks to the US, and he does not hesitate to use them. Imagine if President Obama went to address the Israel parliament, against Bibi? He would not allow it.

  25. Wonder who the person is with the reading comprehension issue?? Hmmm!!

    More proof you’re just trying to stir the pot with — What’s called ‘BaggerBS’. You’re one that follows the leader — like those that yell ‘repeal Obamacare’ yet carry a sign saying ‘don’t touch my medicare’.

    When you hear the House Baggers being interviewed on an issue and it just so happens they all use the exact same words — more proof they too are followers in that they don’t have an original thought between them. Trying to get out of a wet paper bag would confuse them. They have to be spoon fed. Can’t even come up with their own words but have to use the provided script. It’s like listening to parrots.

    Yes — you just keep following the Klown Kar Klan — right into extinction. Bye Bye Felicia!!!

  26. IMO Netanyahu should have been put on the Terrorist list years ago.

    All the military equipment and $$ provided to Israel — stop. No more.

  27. I would like to see aid to Israel brought to a vote by the American people. Israel might be surprised at the results. Especially with Bibi trying to tell us what to do. Lots of Americans are getting very fed up with him trying to run our country.
    Many are also appalled at the way the Israels are treating the Palestinians. Even many American Jews.

  28. UN Security Council unanimously endorses deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program

    The resolution had been agreed to by the five veto-wielding council members, who along with Germany negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran. It was co-sponsored by all 15 members of the Security Council.
    Under the agreement, Iran’s nuclear program will be curbed for a decade in exchange for potentially hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of relief from international sanctions. Many key penalties on the Iranian economy, such as those related to the energy and financial sectors, could be lifted by the end of the year.

  29. The Jewish Press is also reporting that AIPAC is considering using its “nuclear option,” that is, it is considering promising (and delivering) primary challenges to democrats who vote for the deal.

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is staunchly opposed to the Iran nuclear deal and is lobbying Congress hard to reject it. Should it appear that Congress is unable to override a presidential veto on a resolution to reject the Iran deal, some AIPAC officials are contemplating a “nuclear option,” threatening to punish lawmakers who will side with the president on this issue.

  30. The traitors in Congress are taking their marching orders from the head of foreign country in direct opposition to the President of the United States.

    They should all rot in prison. Or better yet, Guantanamo.

  31. What WAR with Iran looks like: A Warrior’s perspective
    As a graduate of the warfare college, having visited Iran before the fall of the Shah, I’ve a unique perspective, deep appreciation and respect for Iran. Those who underestimate Iranian determination; their willingness to absorb immense losses; ability to adapt and overcome, should sit down, extract head from ass. And sober up.

  32. Boehner blasts UN Security Council Iran vote, vows to do … something
    http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/248510-boehner-un-vote-on-iran-is-bad-start-for-a-bad-deal

    Note to Boehner, the UN Security Council has absolutely no f*cks to give over your House vote. President Obama doesn’t have a whole lot more. Additionally, the American people actually support this deal, and have for months. So don’t go hiding behind the “American people” on this one.

  33. Phew! I was very worried that we weren’t going to war with Iran.

    And by the first day, he means on the first day he’s gonna press every red button he can get his grubby little finger on. Hell, he’s gonna have one installed on the Bible he swears on.

    I believe that a president shouldn’t wait to act until they put a cabinet together or an extended period of time, I believe they should be prepared to act on the very first day they take office,” he said. “It’s very possible, God forbid that this would happen, but very possible, that the next president could be called to take aggressive actions, including military actions, on their very first day in office.”

    Yes, sireeee. Apparently only real pussies wait until after the inaugural balls. Walker has plans to boldly invade Iran himself. Screw a cabinet, a secretary of state, a congress … Walker is gonna land on the deck of aircraft carrier with a big “Screw the Damn Mission; I’m Going This Alone” banner.

    It’ll be cool. He promises.

  34. We should lobby MSNBC to give Fuselgang a couple of hours on weekend days, instead of that ‘LockUp’ crap they show now.

  35. The President could also point out that killing the deal might be (doubtful) in Netanyahu’s interest, but it is not in the United States’ interest. If the USA turns down the agreement, the American business will remain under the sanction regime while the rest of the world gets access to trade with Iran. There is oil in them thar hills. There is an educated, cultured populace who will have money with the sanctions lifted, and will be anxious for consumer goods. American business will be left out. The rest of the world will ignore the USA’s sanctions.

  36. if it was braught to a vote whether to support israel the american people would support israel overwhelmingly

  37. politicsusa this is a warning to ur website u continue to delete my comments I will file complaint with the state gov authority against and also the fed gov and i will consider legal action against politicsusa for violating my free speech rights and im not playing

  38. and i see you all antisemites got mad cuz of me standing up for israel oh well deal with it, all ur thumbs down does not and will not change my mind one bit and yes LONG LIVE ISRAEL AND THEl MIGHTY IDF gnite

  39. Clinton,

    I agree that some of the posts against Netanyahu and Israel are over the top. Welcome to PoliticusUSA. However you can oppose some of Israel’s actions and not be an anti-Semite. Personally I don’t have a problem with Netanyahu’s opposition to the Iran deal. From his perspective it is a threat to Israel. He would prefer the US take military action against Iran. But while that may be in his interest (or even Israel’s interest), it’s not in the interest of the USA. Ultimately Israel may choose to go to war against Iran. I think that would be a terrible mistake (at this time) but it would be Israel’s blood and treasure that would be sacrificed, not that of the USA.

  40. What a moron you are!

    Free Speech is all about limiting the government from curtailing your speech.

    You wanna waste your money filing a frivolous suit? Knock yourself out. Repeatedly.

  41. You’re cranky and you need a nap!

    The more I read of your whininess- the more I understand the Victim Card of the Israelis.

    Get bent you loser.

  42. Don’t be so sure Mr.Braught.

    I am as liberal as they come, but when the Ingrate State of Israel insists on sacrificing my kids because Israel wants a war- they can take a long walk off a short pier, as far as I’m concerned.

    Into the Sea.

  43. Iran Sanctions lifted- Oil exports increase- result: gas prices drop even further. Less need (if there ever was) for Tar Sands Oil.

    Oil profits plummet. Koch Brothers and such may have to do without an extra pat of caviar to make up for the loss- much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth from Fox News about how EVIL Obama was for bringing this about!

    What’s not to like?

  44. And now you’re here trying to interfere with his free speech rights, you fascist.

    It’s spelled Y-O-U. Are all brown nosing Pro-semites so lazy?

  45. Andy thank You for being nice I appreciate that and I understand what ur saying, I gave you a thumbs up

  46. And I gave you a thumbs down for your acting like an asshole.

    Don’t like to be treated this way? Then don’t treat others that way, first.

  47. i dont care block me anti semite djchefron besides if u block me and delete my comments so what I still had my say so fo djchefron

  48. If you’re blocked then we won’t have to put up with your simple minded kvetching.

    If you wanna worship Israel- emigrate.

  49. If you’re gonna leave may I suggest you take a course of Maturity Classes?

    And may you have yourself a right Jim-Dandy day!

  50. After spending WAY too much time in the deserts of Saudi Arabia during my tours of duty whilst in the Air Farce…
    I developed a SEVERE dislike of all things Saudi as a result. And of Islam. I’ve been trying to overcome these bad feelings since then.

    But if Clinton Alexander is any indication of the kind of attitude that Palestinians gotta put up with on a day to day basis…then I’m thinking I really need to reassess my negative judgment of then as well.

    The problem with the Saudis, and Netanyahu- is that they’re both motivated with a theocratic nationalism.

    Patriotism- you’re willing to die for your country and your beliefs.
    Fanaticism- you’re willing to let others die for your beliefs.

    Israel strikes me as a Spoiled Brat of a country.

  51. FLUCK AIPAC!!!!
    This is a lobbying outfit guilty of interfering with American politics to benefit Israel, and demanding more and more every year…now they want OUR blood as well to support attempted genocide among other things…

    …imho the only difference between Nutty-Yoyo and the Nazis is scale…the Palestinians are the only group small and weak enough to bully and slowly kill off…

  52. Well whatever happens in and around the Persian Gulf states- I say we take a strict “Hands-Off” attitude.

    Let them ‘settle’ it.

  53. Netanahue should be on a “no fly list” as enemy of the USA. Charged with enemy combatant.Trying to bring down the USA
    Remember the word/,phrase
    “coup d’etat.” (a sudden decisive exercise of force in politics; especially : the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group) Is this what you are going to be responsible for.
    Imigration reform, begin with not letting Netanahue into this country and send his compadre’s back with him. They love Israel and its President more than our country and our President Send them to Israel

  54. The only treason here is negotiating with the terrorist nation of Iran that swears and promises to destroy the US even after these treasonous negotiations.

  55. Your dumbass haven’t read the agreement, what arms control experts have said about it, how sane republican diplomats have said about it, what other governments have said about it so your dumbass comment is just that. A dumbass comment
