ALERT! America and Israel under siege!
By Stanley Zir
January 22, 2012

There are times for soft power, a process that incorporates dialogues in place of threats of military actions in order to order to reach equitable agreements between nations.

There are times for civil unrest and passive resistance in order to demoralize an enemy, change public opinion and bring the offenders to the table.

Finally there are times for sanctions, to take a more hard-line position in order to achieve such ends.

BUT when it comes to those who have chosen to praise G-d through acts of treachery and oppression, one finds the recipe for hatred that is all-consuming. It is here that you find yourself standing face to face with pure evil, when there is no choice but to stand and fight — or perish from the lethal combination of terrorism and tyranny. Negotiations are not the agent of peace.

Although the Obama administration tries to convince us otherwise, these facts remain the same:
    1. The time for regime change is long past, and Ahmadinejad considers the sanctions against Iran his badge of honor.

    2. Thinking we can get a consensus from the international community, to take action against Iran, is equally preposterous. Russia has already begun her saber-rattling against the West.

    3. The only viable option left is military and it is urgent. Yet when the American Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, says "Iran is seeking capability to build nuclear weapons, but hasn't decided to develop one" (the Senate disagrees), we must then realize that this administration has no intention of directly confronting Iran's nuclear threat.
Iran advances; Obama retreats
    1. November 21, 2012 — The Senate passed a resolution, 100-to-zero (co-sponsored by Mark Kirk, R-IL, and Robert Menendez, D-NJ), to impose sanctions on Iran's central bank and any country that does business with Iran, but Obama, for fear of antagonizing Iran, China and Russia, ignored the will of the Senate and watered down the sanctions until they were ineffective. Obama's rejection of this bipartisan bill is unconscionable. Could 100 Senators be wrong?

    2. January 11, 2012 — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly condemns the car-bomb attack that killed Iran's nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan.

    Now that Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan is gone, he doesn't get the chance to kill us, and we should be rejoicing. Rather, Hillary Clinton is commiserating with Ahmadinejad.

    3. January 11, 2012 — Hillary Clinton's reaction to the recent news that Iran had begun enriching uranium at the Fordow facility near Qom: she called on Iran to return to the negotiating table with the U.N. Security Council to find a solution that would include Iran's peaceful use of nuclear energy.

    Another stall tactic by our administration, and there is no way that Ahmadinejad would comply to negotiations. Of course, he would consent to peaceful use of nuclear energy — he gave that as his stated purpose. This administration must think they can pull the wool over the eyes of the American people.

    4. January 13, 2012 — There is general agreement that the Obama administration appears to be pivoting toward a policy of containment (i.e., Iran will get the nuclear bomb, but we can contain their use of it). The basis for this concern arose from the administration's refusal to impose stricter sanctions against Iran, which was proposed by the Senate. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), fearful that Obama will adopt a containment policy, plans to introduce a Senate resolution that declares a containment policy unacceptable, for it will not stop Iran from using a nuclear weapon. Therefore, obtaining a nuclear weapon is unacceptable.

    5. January 14, 2012 — Israel's Defense Minister Ehud Barak presented Israel's red line: from the moment most of the uranium is enriched at a protected site, Iran will have achieved a strategic advantage and Israel will have lost her option of a military strike. And already, Olli Heinonen, former Director-General of IAEA, has admitted that Iran is building a stockpile of 20-percent enriched uranium at a protected site, that could, within weeks, be further purified to the 90-percent necessary for weapons grade. WITHIN WEEKS!

    Obama has a red line too, where Iran is progressed to the point of developing a nuclear warhead rather than making do with nuclear capability. Progressed in developing a nuclear warhead? You don't need a Ph.D. in foreign affairs to understand Obama's foreign policy is more beneficial to Iran than to America and Israel.

    6 January 12, 2012 — Obama sent 9,000 troops to coordinate a defense exercise with Israel.

    9. January 14, 2012 — Obama cancelled a large, joint U.S.-Israeli military drill, scheduled to take place in the coming months, due to budgetary constraints. The drill, called "Austere Challenge 12," was supposed to be the largest ever held between the two countries — a drill that would test multiple Israeli and U.S. air defense systems against incoming missiles and rockets. Israel has deployed the Arrow system, jointly developed with and funded by the U.S., designed to intercept Iranian missiles.

    10. January 19, 2012 — U.S. Joint Chief of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey arrived in Israel to obtain assurances that she won't strike Iran.
On whose side is the President of the United States? I often wonder: is it Ahmadinejad we should fear, or is it Obama's foreign policy that enables an enemy to advance fearlessly.

And that's why we're launcing the NAINC nationwide campaign — to demand the destruction of Iran's nuclear infrastructure now. The man in the White House can no longer be trusted to do the job. Now it's up to We, the People, to make sure he does.

Denounce the "Sanction-dialogue Peddlers." Stop those who are playing Russian roulette with Israel's life.
