Netanyahu for President (Of The United States)

… for the next President would be Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The man is not afraid to speak his mind, make unpopular decisions, and run a country the proper way.

After his speech on June 3, 2010 about the attack on the Gaza boat flotilla, he referred to this boat as a "hate boat", not a "love boat". Netanyahu's words are unapologetic. As they should be. Above all Israel has the right to defend and protect, since the Obama administration and his neo-Nazi supporters as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the Jew-hating Louis Farrakhan (Farrakhan quotes: "The Jews don't like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that's a good name. Hitler was a very great man"; "The real anti-Semites are those who came out of Europe and settled in Palestine, and now they call themselves the true Jews, when in fact, they converted to Judaism") refuse to defend or support Israel, our only ally in the Middle East, and have told Israel in no uncertain terms "togo to hell".

Given Obama's propensity to bash the United States and Israel, by virtue of his world apology tours, apologizing for this country, Netanyahu's speech is the antithesis of Obama's corrupted and demented ideologies.

These are the relevant, important portions ofthe June 3, 2010 speech given by Netanyahu:

"Under international law, and under common sense and common decency, Israel has every right to interdict this weaponry and to inspect the ships that might be transporting them.

This is not a theoretical challenge or a theoretical threat. We have already interdicted vessels bound for Hezbollah, and for Hamas from Iran, containing hundreds of tons of weapons. In one ship, the Francop, we found hundreds of tons of war materiel and weapons destined for Hezbollah. In another celebrated case, the Karine A, dozens of tons of weapons were destined for Hamas by Iran via a shipment to Gaza. Israel simply cannot permit the free flow of weapons and war materials to Hamas from the sea.

I will go further than that. Israel cannot permit Iran to establish a Mediterranean port a few dozen kilometers from Tel Aviv and from Jerusalem. And I would go beyond that too. I say to the responsible leaders of all the nations: The international community cannot afford an Iranian port in the Mediterranean. Fifteen years ago I cautioned about an Iranian development that has come to pass – people now recognize that danger. Today I warn of this impending willingness to enable Iran to establish a naval port right next to Israel, right next to Europe. The same countries that are criticizing us today should know that they will be targeted tomorrow.

For this and for many other reasons, we have a right to inspect cargo heading into Gaza."

"Once again, Israel is told that it has a right to defend itself but is condemned every time it exercises that right. Now you know that a right that you cannot exercise is meaningless. And you know that the way we exercise it – under these conditions of duress, under the rocketing of our cities, under the impending killing of our soldiers – you know that we exercise it in a way that is commensurate with any international standard. I have spoken to leading leaders of the world, and I say the same thing today to the international community: What would you do? How would you stop thousands of rockets that are destined to attack your cities, your civilians, your children? How would your soldiers behave under similar circumstances? I think in your hearts, you all know the truth.

Israel regrets the loss of life. But we will never apologize for defending ourselves. Israel has every right to prevent deadly weapons from entering into hostile territory. And Israeli soldiers have every right to defend their lives and their country.

This may sound like an impossible plea, or an impossible request, or an impossible demand, but I make it anyway: Israel should not be held to a double standard. The Jewish state has a right to defend itself just like any other state."

With someone like Netanyahu standing up for his country, I believe we need him to stand up for this country, and I wouldsubmit to the people of the United States of America to consider a moral, principled person like Prime Minister Netanyahu to run for President of the United States.Yes, he's had problems in Israel, but you can blame that on the split parties in the Knesset (legislature) there. Especiallywith the global financial problems being exacerbated by the liberal parties that have financially harmed the country with their failed entitlement policies. Netanyahu, given the massive support of conservatives in the United States would surely straighten this country out once and for all.

As of this writing, Netanyahu's speech must have made a great impact on Saudi Arabia. US defense sources speaking on condition of anonymity told The Times on Sunday that Israel has been given overflight clearance by Saudi Arabia and is permitted to use northern Saudi airspace in the event of military confrontation with Iran.

Saudi Arabia has reportedly launched a series of military maneuvers aimed at allowing Israeli jets to use the kingdom's airspace for an aerial attack on Iranian nuclear sites.
