    Obama on nuke deal: I’ll ‘stand by’ Israel

    Apr 06, 2015 2 Comments
    US Pres pitches for Iran deal in interview with New York Times Saturday. He acknowledged legitimacy of Israel’s concerns about Iran. Noting Iran’s leadership’s Holocaust denial & repeated threats to eliminate Israel, Obama reiterated that a negotiated agreement was the “best bet” to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. “There is no formula, there is no option, to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon that will be more effective than the diplomatic initiative & framework that we put forward - and that’s demonstrable,” Obama said.

    Bibi slams Iran nuke deal on US news

    Apr 06, 2015 2 Comments
    “The entire world celebrated the deal with North Korea," Bibi told NBC’s Meet the Press. It was deemed to be a great breakthrough. "It would bring an end to North Korea’s nuclear programme; you’d have inspectors. That would do the job. And of course everybody applauded it," he said. But it turned out to be a "very, very bad deal & you know where we are with North Korea. I think the same thing would be true in the case of Iran,” he said, “they just chanted ‘Death to America’ a few days ago on the streets of Tehran, the same streets where they’re rejoicing right now.”

    “Like most New York Jews, I love “The Daily Show,” and so I was very sad to hear that Jon Stewart would be moving on. This past Monday morning, Comedy Central announced 31-year-old Trevor Noah as The Daily Show’s next host, and I thought, “OK, I don’t know him or his comedy all that well, but good for him. I hope he does well,” writes Geoff Mitelman on My Jewish Learning.

    Obama and Bibi dig in over Iran deal

    Apr 06, 2015 Go comment!
    For President Obama, the framework agreement reached last Thursday with Iran is an “historic understanding” that does more to roll back Tehran’s nuclear programme than any possible alternative and avoids the risk of a destructive war in the Middle East. But to Israeli PM Netanyahu, it’s the complete opposite: a pact that “threatens the survival of Israel” and would “increase the risks of nuclear proliferation in the region and the risks of a horrific war.” Read what else was said...
