Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

Posted by on Mar 02, 2015 at 9:23 am

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.

The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Al-Jarida quoted “well-placed” sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.

    If this report is true, in my almost sixty years, I am siding with a country over my own. I am embarrassed to be an American by this.

    Who exactly is our enemy and who is our friend?

    I would not want to be in the shoes of the U.S. soldier or airman who would have been ordered to bring down those planes.

    I pray this report turns out to be B.S.

    U.S.A. please wake up!

    Post one: You are spot on in the depths of hell this Nation has been placed under by President 44, his cabal and a willing 4th Estate.

    The real problem is that Obama has shredded the Constitution, has lied and/ or his officials so often – the current IRS, Learner et al Hillary ,”.. what difference does it make..” that this current report has currency. The damage to this Republic by this pathogen is so complete that “…I am siding with a foreign country over my own…” is the new reality.
