Netanyahu won't let Israel be Pearl Harbored.

President Barack Obama managed to get himself elected President of the United States by posing as a defender of traditional marriage and the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) enacted by shamelessly lying.

Doubtless he would justify it, if he dared to admit it, by claiming to be serving a greater good.

There's no doubt that President Obama wanted Israeli's leftists who call for "social justice" to put an end to Netanyahu's prime ministership.

Standing up to the President of the United States usually would be a poor reelection strategy for an Israeli prime minister, but with the President being Barack Obama and a dubious deal with an Iran hellbent on becoming a nuclear power, it was Netanyahu's and it worked splendidly.

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is no Barack Obama and no one should expect him to let israel be destroyed by a nuclear Iran.

When Netanyahu says "Never again!", he means it.

No nuclear iran on his watch.

The Obama Administration may have expected Netanyahu not to be reelected, but the Israeli people wisely opted for security over "social justice" and the Obama administration needs to deal with the political reality in Israel, despite its frustration that kept White House aide David Simas from expressing even perfunctory congratulations to Netanyahu.

Simas: "We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And we're going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and we're not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward."

Netanyahu's trip to the United States to address Congress not only resulted in his resounding reelection victory, but publicized the fundamental flaws in the Obama Administraation's treatment of the dire threat posed by Iran.

Charles Krauthammer summed up reality nicely (www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/charles-krauthammer-do-we-really-mean-never-again/2015/01/29/25447c92-a7f4-11e4-a06b-9df2002b86a0_story.html):

"The Iranian bomb is a national security issue, an alliance issue and a regional Middle East issue. But it is also a uniquely Jewish issue because of Israel's situation as the only state on earth overtly threatened with extinction, facing a potential nuclear power overtly threatening that extinction.

"On the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz, mourning dead Jews is easy. And, forgive me, cheap. Want to truly honor the dead? Show solidarity with the living – Israel and its 6 million Jews. Make 'never again' more than an empty phrase. It took Nazi Germany seven years to kill 6 million Jews. It would take a nuclear Iran one day."

If Obama's machinations force Netanyahu to make a preemptive nuclear strike, it will be no solace when Obama's Nobel Peace Prize is rescinded!
