Despite the hatred I hold for the African President of America, you gotta give it to him: he is indeed standing up against Bibi, and it is hilarious.
Remarks by US President Barack Obama about not requiring Iran to recognize Israel as part of a nuclear deal with the P5+1 is counter to the discourse adopted by the White House and other US officials since the regime came into being, says a renowned activist and radio host.
Obama said in a Monday interview with NPR that requiring Tehran to recognize Israel is a “fundamental misjudgment”.
According to Don DeBar, the president’s comments “directly” addressed a “demand” by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said earlier that Iran’s recognition of the regime must a part of the deal with Tehran.
Like other regional countries that are “under the control of their own people”, Iran would not take such a measure, DeBar speculated. However, Obama’s address “is almost mind-blowing because it is counter to the tradition of politics in Washington, DC.”
“I’m also mindful of the fact that the nature of the United States and Europe as colonial and imperial powers has not changed,” he said, warning further that it is essential to watch out as this is “not the end of the game”.
