Obama warns Netanyahu not to ‘surprise’ him by striking Iran

American President Barack Obama has warned Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu not to surprise him by striking Iran (Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit).

U.S. President Barack Obama has sent a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding that Israel not surprise the U.S. with an Israeli military operation against Iran. The message was conveyed by a senior American official who met in Israel with Netanyahu, ministers and other senior officials. Earlier, Netanyahu’s envoy visited Washington and met with National Security Adviser James Jones and with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and discussed the dialogue Obama has initiated with Tehran.  More>>

Deflecting blame:

Hussein Obama has found  a way to pass the buck to the courts. The Muslim POTUS was criticized for last month’s release of memos authorizing harsh interrogation techniques. If the photos are now made public over White House objections, the inevitable outrage might be deflected toward the courts and away from the president. More>>

Krauthammer on whether Israel will attack Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons

  • The alliance between the Western Left and Islamic anger is perplexing, writes Greg Sheridan 

  • Who knew? U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday declared May Jewish American Heritage Month, saying that the “United States would not be the country we know without the achievements of Jewish Americans.”

    It’s Jewish American History Month?! Really? I didn’t know…did you?? Did anyone?  More from

Here’s Charles Krauthammer’s take on whether Israel will attack Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons.

I think everybody understands that any Israeli government, even the previous, the more dovish, if you like, Ehud Olmert, the government in Israel, would have attacked if nothing is done by the end of this year.

It’s not about the new prime minister. It’s about Israel itself. No government will tolerate a nuke in the hands of Iran.

The only question is, does Israel have the capacity to actually destroy this nuclear capacity on the part of Iran enough to set it back about half a decade? If it doesn’t, then it would be a futile and dangerous act.

I’m going to go out on a limb and disagree with Krauthammer. Here’s why.
