Christie on Ahmadinejad: ‘Bring Down the Craziest Man in the World’

April 9, 2012 5:25 pm 7 comments

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on his first trip to Israel, outlined his views on the Iranian nuclear threat in an interview with Israel Hayom.

“First of all, my position is that Iran must not be permitted to acquire nuclear capability because then it would acquire nuclear weapons,” Christie said. “That would permit it to influence the entire region, and potentially, the entire world.

“Second, Israel’s foundation rests upon its ability, and actual right, to defend itself without relying on any other nation in the world to guarantee its existence,” he continued. “I think that the U.S. must respect the fact that the State of Israel has the right to determine how it will defend itself. You’ve got an Iranian president who wants to wipe Israel off the map. I think we have an obligation to bring down the craziest man in the world.”

  • who are all these crazy israel haters that read israeli news; i wonder if they spoke out against israel’s neighbors for ‘honor’ killing their women for walking in the streets by themselves if the free press of iran would let them post their ridiculous statements.
    hopefully christie will become the vp and romney adopts newt’s educated position that there is no such thing as a palestinian people. unless you consider the indigenous jews who always lived in israel to be palestinians.

    Uh yeah… how much in billions does Israel get in aid from the US again?

    Israel has no ability to do anything for itself save make bad situations worse (Hey I know, invade Lebanon again! That always works!).

    But it’s cute that the mayor of New Jersey thinks he understands the Iranian situation, I know he watched Fox News, it tells him all he needs to know; Israel are the good guys Muslims are always the bad ones.

    And if you say otherwise than you must be an antisemitic hater.

  • Would some please inform Christie of the utter irony of his statement?

    “First of all, my position is that Iran must not be permitted to acquire nuclear capability because then it would acquire nuclear weapons,” Christie said. “That would permit it to influence the entire region, and potentially, the entire world.”

    Does that also correlate to the nation in that region that does possess upwards of 200 nuclear weapons, and that does influence not only said region, but the entire world?

    Just an observation.

    Iran NOT having a nuclear weapons program is influencing the world. The world of lies, the world of greed, and the response is worse for the world.

  • First of all, my position is that Iran must not be permitted to acquire nuclear capability because then it would acquire nuclear weapons,” Christie said. “That would permit it to influence the entire region, and potentially, the entire world

    Man did he sell out quick! “Influence the entire region”, oh you mean the way Israel and the US does? Yeah I forgot we HATE competition.

  • weareawakening

    Do you know why they call New Jersey the Garden State? Because there is a Rosenbloom on every street… Christie is a vile,disgusting excuse for a human-being.If you ask me he should have done us all a favor and stayed in israel with the rest of the psychopaths.Maybe some day Americans will pull their heads out of their arses and take back our government from Z.O.G. and legally try these scumbags for treason.

  • Gross obesity is hardly a sign of mental stability. That aside, ALL Nations have a RIGHT to defend themselves. It is Israel that has a “bible” that celebrates the genocide of it’s PERCEIVED enemies.

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the moral of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry has [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
