Iran is secretly negotiating with Obama over an arrangement acknowledging Iran’s supremacy as the regional power at Israel’s expense. Ahmadinejad is encouraged by the anti-Israeli rhetoric from President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the way administration officials link the Netanyahu government’s policies towards the Palestinians with the loss of American lives in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Muslim birds of a feather stick together.
With typical provocative arrogance, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said in a letter addressed to the US president that Barack Obama’s power and success depends on Iran. Disclosing this Friday, April 16, the Iranian leader promised to publish the letter soon. “Obama should start cooperating with us in practice,” he said. “We don’t need you to do anything for us to come out of isolation, rather we want to help you come out of isolation.”
On the US push for sanctions against Iran’s nuclear program, he wrote: “The time when they can imagine they can do Iran any harm is over.” The US cannot dominate the Middle East without Iran, he added. “The nuclear issue veils America’s real intentions.”
DEBKAfile’s Iranian sources reveal that the Iranian president’s comment on the veil overAmerica’s real intentions refers to the Obama administration’s behind-the-scenes contacts with Iran in which they are engaged in drawing the dividing lines of influence between the US and Iran in the Middle East and Persian Gulf. This is going on behind Obama’s strong public condemnations of Tehran.
DEBKAfile’s Middle East sources stress that US-Iranian cooperation is already well in progress in Beirut, where Tehran’s surrogate, Hizballah, has been co-opted to government and parliament with veto powers over their decisions; in Yemen, where Iran withdrew its backing from the Houthi rebels in a deal brokered by Syria; and in Baghdad, where Iyad Allawi, whose Al Iraqiya part won the general elections, was left no choice but to travel to Tehran to obtain Iran’s blessing for his government coalition.
While still militarily present in Iraq, Washington has come to terms with the fact that even a pro-western Iraqi ruler who won office in a US-sponsored election cannot form a stable government without presenting himself cap in hand in Tehran.
Ahmadinejad is clearly willing to expand this profitable “cooperation” with the Obama administration to other Middle East spheres and so avoid a showdown over Iran’s nuclear aspirations.
Where does this leave Israel? (Probably getting ready to launch an attack) DEBKA
I was reminded of the similar positions on Israel from Barack Obama, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Adolf Hitler in these quotes:
Jeff Goldberg:— Do you think that Israel is a drag on America’s reputation overseas?
Barack Obama:— No. But what I think is that this constant wound, that this constant sore, does infect all of our foreign policy. The lack of a resolution to this problem provides an excuse for anti-American militant jihadists to engage in inexcusable actions, and so we have a national-security interest in solving this, and I also believe that Israel has a security interest in solving this because I believe that the status quo is unsustainable. I am absolutely convinced of that, and some of the tensions that might arise between me and some of the more hawkish elements in the Jewish community in the United States might stem from the fact that I’m not going to blindly adhere to whatever the most hawkish position is just because that’s the safest ground politically.
Obama’s remarks seem to parallel those of Ahmadinejad:
In yet another verbal attack against Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Jewish state a “filthy bacteria” whose sole purpose was to oppress the other nations of the region. The world powers established this filthy bacteria, the Zionist regime, which is lashing out at the nations in the region like a wild beast,” the Iranian president told supporters at a rally in southern Iran.
The father of all Jew-haters, Adolf Hitler had some similar remarks along these lines:
Against the infection of materialism, against the Jewish pestilence we must hold aloft a flaming ideal. And if others speak of the World and Humanity we say the Fatherland – and only the Fatherland!
