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.

    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.

    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.
