BOMBSHELL ALLEGATION: POTUS Obama Reportedly Threatened To Shoot Down Israeli Jets In 2014 – If They Attacked Iran’s Nuclear Facilities/Infrastructure
On the eve of Israel Prime Minister’s speech to a joint session of Congress — regarding the Iran nuclear talks — reports surfaced in the Middle East over the weekend that allege “POTUS Obama stopped an impending Israeli military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities/infrastructure in 2014 — by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets.” David Mccormack, writing on the March 2, 2015 website of London’s TheDailyMailOnline, says “the threat from POTUS Obama forced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to abort a planned attack on Iran,” according to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida.
“The Netanyahu government [reportedly] made the decision to strike Iran [nuclear infrastructure] last year,after discovering that the U.S. and Iran were involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program; and, were about to sign an agreement in that regard — behind Israel’s back,” Mr Mccormack wrote.
The Kuwaiti newspaper claimed “an unnamed Israeli minister, who has good ties with the U.S. administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry; and, that POTUS Obama then threatened to shoot down Israeli jets…before they could reach their targets in Iran. According to the Kuwaiti newspaper article, “[PM] Netanyahu and his commanders agreed, after four nights of deliberations — to task the Israeli Chief-of-Staff Benny Gantz to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Prime Minister Netanyahu and his cabinet, decided to whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between the White House and Iran — because such an agreement is allegedly a threat to Israel’s security.”
“The sources added that Gen. Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan; and, that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks — in order to make sure the plan would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out mock flights in Iran’s airspace — after they had broken through the country’s air defenses.
Needless to say, these are sensational allegations; and, ordinarily I would not have even given this article and allegation any thought — but, not with this administration. When it comes to this White House, one can’t trust, and must verify. With PM Netanyahu set to address a joint session of Congress tomorrow (Tuesday), these allegations — if there is any truth to them — could shed a whole new portrait of just how much dislike there is between the Obama administration and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
