Three Cheers for Bibi

Giving credit where credit is due.

I’m not in the habit of cheering Bibi, but he’s to be congratulated for infuriating President Barack Obama, the worst president in American history.

Obama, the “empty suit” in the White House, exasperates just about everyone, even the Arabs. The Sunni Muslims despise him. He behaves as a toady of Shiite Iran, whose development of nuclear weapons threatens not only Israel, but any Arab state that doesn’t genuflect to the Mullahs in Tehran. Nor is this all.

Obama has also alienated Europe, especially Czechoslovakia and Poland. He was supposed to have provided them with a missile defense system against Russia, but his attention was diverted to a more challenging game of golf.  

The only mistake he made in addressing the joint session of Congress concerning Iran is that he spoke the truth.
That’s not the pastime of Vladimir Putin, more interested in the Ukraine.

Russia’s imperialist ambitions did not end with the gutting of the Berlin Wall. Russian tanks are in the Ukraine in the Crimea. Control of the Black Sea ports of Crimea provide the Russians with quick access to the Eastern Mediterranean, the Balkans, and the Middle East – a threat to NATO’s entire southern flank.

Some experts say we witnessing a low-keyed renewal of the Cold War. 

That’s something the floundering Chicago community organizer is intellectually incapable of giving serious thought.  

Let’s face it: we didn’t need Professor Newt Gingrich in the Senate gallery to realize that POTUS is an embarrassment to the Congress of the United States, with the exception of the lachrymose Nancy Pelosi. Bibi’s speech made the poor lady cry.

The only mistake he made in addressing the joint session of Congress concerning Iran is that he spoke the truth. 

Not that Bibi’s incapable of indirection. That’s the modus operandi of Israeli leaders who speak in public about peace with the Palestinian Authority, whose Qur’an is the same as that of the Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Nevertheless, one must give credit when it’s due, in the hope that the exceptional will become the rule.

So three cheers for Bibi, and may truth become his banner!
