On Election Eve Netanyahu Boasts Trump Designated Iran’s Guards At His Request

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

We noted Monday that just hours after President Trump formally designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as a terrorist organization, Iran’s foreign ministry responded in kind, immediately put forward a bill placing US Central Command on a list of organizations designated as terrorists, akin to Daesh.

On Election Eve Netanyahu Boasts Trump Designated Iran's Guards At His Request

A number of analysts were quick to point out how this sets the stage for further unnecessary tit-for-tat escalation inevitably making things messier for US forces in the Middle East, and significantly increases the changes of direct war. Soon after the White House’s IRGC designation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked President Trump in a tweet, the Hebrew version of which bragged it was all the prime minister’s idea.

Netanyahu said in the Hebrew-only tweet that he was glad Trump “answered another one of my important requests” which will keep the world safe from Iran. It’s unclear what the prime minister mean from “another” of his requests, but less than two weeks ago Trump made a dramatic decisions to overturn decades of official US policy and bestow formal recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights after receiving a “quickie” history lesson.

It’s well known that Netanyahu had personally lobbied for weeks and months for that decision, and on Monday appeared to be touting both as his initiative on the eve of Israel’s election.

According to The Intercept’s translation the statement said: “Thank you, my dear friend, President Donald Trump,” Netanyahu tweeted in Hebrew, “for answering another one of my important requests.”

Likely the statement was not made in English in order to avoid making President Trump look weak in front of US political leaders and the American public, while at the same bolstering (in Hebrew to Israel’s domestic audience) Netanyahu’s ability to immediately make Washington bend to Israel’s interests.

Though Trump has clearly thrown his full support behind a Netanyahu victory, it doesn’t bode well for “America First” having the Israeli leader essentially bragging that Washington policy can be dictated from Jerusalem.

On the further significance of the statement, The Intercept observed:

Joe Dyke, an Agence France-Presse correspondent, pointed out that Netanyahu omitted the claim that Trump’s move was made at his request in a subsequent tweet in English. That left the prime minister open to the charge often leveled at Palestinian leaders by Israelis, that they placate the international community in English and then say something quite different for domestic consumption in their native tongue.

Israelis head to the polls to elect a prime minister on Tuesday, and one key feature of Netanyahu’s campaign — lately beset by no less than three corruption charges as prime minister — has been his warm relations with the American president and close cooperation.

I thought it was Tommy J that first proposed this idea?

“…and one key feature of Netanyahu’s campaign … has been his warm relations with the American president and close cooperation.”

Bad strategy. While Israelis find the US a useful tool and are constantly surprised by the truckloads of US tax dollars handed over to them, they generally despise us. We’ll know soon enough how well this ‘warm relations’ campaign feature went for the war criminal’s re-election. In the mean time, Bibi’s Plan B to win the election is apparently to go down to the beach and yell at the sunbathers to go vote for him – Israelis are using the day off of work to relax at the ocean. I wonder if dual-citizens like Trump can vote in Israeli elections?

“Get out of the water, get out of the malls, get out of the houses. Vote for Likud. The gap must be closed. The right must be saved. Wake up,” demanded the prime minister.” F’king psychopath.

Netanyahu to beachgoers: Go vote http://ch7.io/c-4O$Fw

You really are a vile, deluded hateful little man aren’t you?

Hasbara Hunter

Nope….wrong Psychoanalysis…I’m a very Warm, Open & Friendly Person…come as a friend and I’ll shake your hand….I can get a little Emotional and all that….but I pretty much got my deepest inner feelings under control….

When I smell Hasbararats I often have some difficulties to control myself….is that Strange Dr. Ed?

Ed

So, you’re a very warm, open and friendly person but you hate all Jews, Americans, British and French and would be happy to see them all suffer and wiped off the face of the earth?
And who is my ‘team’ supposed to be? America? I’m actually not American nor do I support their actions in the Middle East.

Hasbara Hunter

You are probably from Great Britain…is my guess…
I do not hate All Jews, Americans, British & French…I hate the Elite…they are Evil Folks

Ed

Yes, I am British but I’m no longer proud to be as I despise my fucking Government for reasons too numerous to list here. They’ve turned the country into a fucking joke.

Shalom, my Jewish sister. Clearly you don’t understand what psychoanalysis is. Your self analysis, about your inability to regulate your hateful emotional self, is psychological gold dust.

Hasbara Hunter

Thanks…I feel a lot better….

verner

and rightfully so, you prime idiot. israel must be destroyed to the core – palestina returned to the rightful owners and that the squatters evicted all the way to hell – you can’t allow the squatters to exist as they

a) are operating a DEPALESTINATION-program aiming to make the palestinians extinct (just like hitler aimed to make germany judenfrei, the squatters aim to make the land they occupy palestinenfrei) and

b) running a LEBENSRAUM-program on the westbank (just like hitler did have a lebensraum-program) and

c) operating CONCENTRATION CAMP GAZA starving and maltreating the approx 2 million palestinians to a slow death (just like hitler did operate a number of concentration camps with that exact purpose)..

otherwise using snipers to shoot kids throwing stones and causing mayhem in the entire middle east and thus the only solution is to send them to hell or to moronistan (aka usa) if they were to be granted green cards there (which I seriously doubt) so its helllllll ! is that clear enough!!!!

When Jews look into the mirror, they do not see the devil inside staring back at them, they see themselves as gods.
When Jews stair at Goyim’s following God, they see a threat to their self delusions of themselves.comment image

Somebody did a photoshop of the picture and not a good one either.
It does not serve our cause when people alter pictures for whatever
reason. The original picture is much more powerful, it is much
more clear and I see no reason whoever did this felt the need to
alter the picture.

Hasbara Hunter

They probably altered the Picture in the Hope people would use it….so that they can say it is Fake and be able to discredit the person who posted it…?

Guess what, nothing will change between the US and Israel even if Gantz wins. And the Jerusalem Post is already predicting a tie between Likud and Blue&White. I would say the relationship between the two countries, for better or worse, very stable with or without these symbolic moves.

verner

please note – israel is not needed by anyone and that is why israel must be destroyed forthwith, before the squatters cause the world to be destroyed.

This man is Netanyahu’s father known as Mileikowsky, a
Lithuanian Jew who came to Palestine in 1920 at the age of 11
with his 40 year old father. Netanyahu’s grandfather could dare
to come to Palestine only after the Ottoman government had
collapsed. Netanyahu is known to brag that he had been in
Palestine for generations. Netanyahu always makes sure to talk
about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and how he’s related to them.
None of us make it an obsession that we must mention how we
are related to some biblical figures. But for the European Jews,
they have no other claim to Palestine except what is written in
the Bible. It does not occur to the Netanyahu’s how they look
completely alien to the region but not to Europe. Should that not
be enough to make them question if they really have a
connection to the Middle East?
