Netanyahu Implies Threat to Assassinate Obama in Recent Speech?
Given the reference to a “grassy knoll” in a recent speech from Israel PM Netanyahu, as noted below by writer Raimondo, we hope Mr Obam’s Secret Secret security arrangements are in much better shape than they were when another head of the Secret Service was in charge up to a few weeks ago:
“The famously combative Israeli Prime Minister went on to say:
“When there are pressures on Israel to concede its security, the easiest thing to do is to concede. You get a round of applause, ceremonies on grassy knolls, and then come the missiles and the tunnels.”
Bibi, who spent many years in the United States, is surely cognizant of what his “grassy knoll” reference connotes. You can argue it was just an infelicitous phrase, or that Bibi was referring to himself, not Obama. Maybe so. But what if, say, an Iranian official, even a low-ranking one, had said such a thing? The uproar would be deafening. And so the question must be asked: was Bibi threatening the President of the United States? If we take seriously Goldberg’s depiction of the poisoned relationship between Bibi and Obama, the possibility can’t be completely dismissed. The Chickenshit Lobby, otherwise known as Israel’s amen corner in the US, is mad as hell – but just how mad are they? I don’t know the answer to that question, but as the prospect of a peace agreement with Iran looms larger, those whose job it is to protect the President need to take this potential threat seriously. As we’ve seen recently, the White House isn’t exactly an impregnable fortress. In the meantime, it’s time to start reevaluating the “special relationship” in light of an Israeli leader who talks about the “grassy knoll” while denouncing an American president.
Phi Beta Iota: Both George Bush Senior and Rabin are known to have been in Dallas and strongly suspected (indictable but not proven in a court of law) of being parties to the JFK assassination. The Israeli Zionist government and lobby (not to be confused with loyal American or Israeli Jews) has previously threatened Barack Obama with assassination, in writing, in public. Obama is at a fork in the road — he can finish his term quietly, take the money, and retire to make tons more money — or he can reconnect with his integrity and the US Constitution, and use the last two years of his term to push through Electoral Reform, Intelligence Reform, and Open Source Everything. We are not holding our breath. All indications are that 2016 will be Hillary Clinton against Jeb Bush, Jeb will win and Hillary will take the massive bribe to do another “Al Gore” (roll over and play dead) and American will decline even further.
