    So much for US democracy, when genuine debate is purposely shut down by the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration. What are they afraid of?

    But more to the point, Us and Israeli citizens need to understand that there are no winners if Iran gets a nuclear device. Iran will use it and probably not in a conventional delivery system – they are after all, the worlds leaders in terrorism support.

    Think about it; a ship sails into New York harbour and detonates a small nuclear device enough to flatten the city. How many dead? How many injured? there won’t be any immediate response from the US and probably not at – world opinion (particularly the EU) won’t let the US nuke Iran.

    So, a wonderful scenario courtesy of Mr Obama’s bad deal!
    And debate is being shut down – that’s the scary part.

    Why are Jews donating to these demogogues.They get the Jewish vote without earning it.Groucho Marx had a line in a movie which sums up Obama” Who yo gonna believe ,me or your own eyes?Winston Churchill said”You have chosen dishonor,you will have war.
    Israel will take Iran down after an Obama sellout.They will have to use nukes ,as they will be taking on Iran and Hezbollah without US permission. King obama will have a fit .
