ANALYSIS/OPINION:

House Speaker John Boehner was wise to have Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak to Congress in order to address the truth about Iran’s evil designs to rule the Middle East (“Obama strikes back, scolds Netanyahu for offering ‘nothing new,’” Web, March 3). Prime Minister Netanyahu displayed candid courage in the face of being snubbed by President Obama and Mr. Obama’s Democratic minions, while Secretary of State John Kerry was busy capitulating to Iran’s one-side negotiations.

Indeed, President Obama’s passive legacy is on a reckless course to disarm the United States in the face of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s aggression, a rapidly expanding Islamic terrorist movement and hapless negotiations with Iran (regardless of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s warnings). All of this threatens to annihilate Israel, America and the West.

Surely Mr. Netanyahu is well known as a fearless defender of his homeland. And certainly Israel will know if and when it’s time to strike Iran to prevent it acquiring nuclear-weapons capability, even though Mr. Obama has wrongly warned Israel against unilateral action.

Iran is a clear and present danger to Israel and our national security. The president and Congress must take decisive action or the consequences will be ours. Anything less is unacceptable. Alas, though unthinkable, there is nothing to prevent Russia or North Korea from providing Iran with nuclear weapons.
