Obama forewarns Netanyahu that sanctions against Iran will soon be partially lifted


Obama-NetanyahuDebkaFile: “President Barack Obama has notified Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that his administration will soon start the partial and gradual easing of economic sanctions against Iran, debkafile reports exclusively from its Washington and Jerusalem sources. The reduction would apply to “non-significant” yet “substantial” sanctions, the message said.

Israel is the only American ally to receive prior warning of this decision.”

Opinion: And who didn’t see this coming? During the Iranian revolution of 2009, President Obama chose not to meddle over the rigged election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Russian-sponsored Iranian nuclear program was open for business.

Last week the smiling president of Iran snubbed the President of the United States on 5 occasions and won the hearts of the progressive left.

Prime Minister Netanyahu knows that if Iran is to be stopped, he will have to go it alone. It will cost him. Without America’s security guarantees the Arab world will ramp up its attacks. Russia and Iran, still wallowing in the victory over Syria, see the US president as a pushover.

But Israel need not fear. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has their back. Ezekiel 38:18 “This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.”

Ouch … that’s gonna hurt.
