• Netanyahu: ISIS And Iran Are The Same

    In his much-anticipated address before Congress to today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said “Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam.”

    “One calls itself the Islamic Republic. One calls itself the Islamic State,” Netanyahu said. That Iran is helping to destroy ISIS does not make Iran a trusted ally of Israel and the West, he said.

    “When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy,” he added.

    In reference to a now-failed planned pushed by the Obama regime to have Iran halt all nuclear activity for at least 10 years, Netanyahu said, “This is a bad deal—a very bad deal. We’re better off without it.”

    “Iran’s supreme leader . . . spews the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology,” Netanyahu said. “He tweets that Israel must be . . . destroyed.”

    Netanyahu also praised Obama, saying, “I called the president, and he was there.”

    But Obama wasn’t there, at least not at today’s address to Congress. Obama isn’t even meeting with Netanyahu during his U.S. visit.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that negations on Iran’s nuclear program would continue ahead of a March 31st deadline.

    And on that point, Netanyahu said a deal with Iran would start the countdown to a “nuclear nightmare.”

    During Netanyahu’s speech, Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) appeared to be deeply uninterested and even disturbed. She was seen sprinting out of the chamber before even speaking to Netanyahu.

    Geopolitical perils–from the rise of a murderous Islamic Caliphate to persistent Palestinian-backed attacks from Hezbollah to a near-nuclear Iran–brought Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress about the dangers his country faces. And it was at the behest of the Speaker of the House.
