I’m not sure what kind of animal the namesake of ObamaCare is—he calls himself a mutt—but any animal, from the lowly rat to the lower community organizer, is dangerous when cornered:
While the EU and the United States cheered a deal that world powers reached with Tehran over its nuclear ambitions, Israel was fierce in its criticism Sunday, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling the agreement a “historic mistake” that his country isn’t bound by.
“What was achieved last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake,” Netanyahu said in a statement Sunday morning. “This agreement and its significance there of threatens many countries and of course Israel among them. Israel is not obliged to the agreement.”
His ministers went much farther in their criticism.
“If in five years, a nuclear suitcase explodes in New York or Madrid,” Naftali Bennett, the Israeli minister of trade and industry, said, “it will be because of the agreement that was signed this morning.”
To be sure, there is no love lost between Iran and Israel: neighbors and archrivals.
Iran, which in the past has questioned Israel’s right to even exist, continues to push Tel Aviv’s buttons with incendiary statements.
Archrivals? Push buttons?
You mean like this?
Khamenei said Israeli officials “cannot be even called humans” and referred to Netanyahu as “the rabid dog of the region.”
“Israel is much smaller than Iran in land mass, and therefore far more vulnerable to nuclear attack.”
— Former Iranian President Ali Rafsanjani
“Surely, the day will come when the nations of the region will witness the destruction of the Zionist regime… when the destruction happens will depend on how the Islamic nations approach the issue.”
[E]enmity toward the Zionist octupus are among the [chief] mottos of the Iranian people.”
— Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran
Israel has managed — by means of violence, force, intimidation, satanic plots and widespread propoganda — to impose itself upon the region and to create a myth that the Zionist regime is invincible. But today, the Islamic resistance [Hamas, Hizbullah and Islamic Jihad] has shattered this false myth… As Khomeini said, if every Muslim pours a bucket of water over Israel, it will be washed away.”
— Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki
“Our position against the Zionist regime is to the benefit of all nations, because this regime is a shameful stain on the body of mankind, and its crimes in Palestine are a disgrace to humanity at large. That is why we want to put an end to the [Zionists’] crimes. Today, after 60 years, the time had come to open up the black box of the Zionist regime’s crimes and expose the facts…
With God’s grace, your wish will soon be realized, and this germ of corruption will be wiped off the face of the world.”
“Israel’s days are numbered.”
“The people of the region would not miss the narrowest opportunity to annihilate this false regime.”
Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury (while) any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world….As the Imam [Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini] said, Israel must be wiped off the map.”
Those who think that they can revive this stinking corpse by celebrating its anniversary are totally wrong. … Having received a slap in the face from the Lebanese people, this regime is now coming to its end like a dead fish.
— Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran
Gosh, I haven’t heard such virulent genocidal language by a criminal regime (Iran’s, not Obama’s) run by rabid zealots (Obama’s, not Iran’s) seeking to arm themselves for Armageddon (Iran, not Obama) since … I can’t remember when!
As historians (in the shape of cockroaches, the only survivors) pick through the rubble of what’s left of civilization, they will debate which of Obama’s spasms of fear and anger did the most damage. Cornered by the dismal failure of ObamaCare (and its implications for the doctrine of liberalism), the trapped mutt has let slip the tyranny of the majority in the Senate and the demons of messianic Islam in Iran. He has used ObamaCare enrollment to register new Democrat voters, and will, by hook or by crook, turn illegal aliens into voting citizens before his time is done.
I’ve long wondered why the namesake of ObamaCare has been so hostile and divisive with his rhetoric. As a relatively young man, doesn’t he know that he’ll live to see his work undone, his vision of a diminished America painted over? It implied to me that he had no intention of leaving, that he would create a crisis to exploit, a national emergency that would render elections too dangerous to risk. What I did not understand is that he could keep his promise to “fundamentally transform America”. We are circling the drain, and we’re taking others down with us.
