On Friday, the day after Barack Obama openly lied about Israeli support for his Iran nuclear deal -- which grants the Iranians hundreds of billions of dollars with no limitations on terror funding or ballistic missile testing, and a clear path to a nuclear weapon after a decade - the Israeli Defense Ministry sounded off:
The Munich Agreement didn't prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust precisely because its basis, according to which Nazi Germany could be a partner for some sort of agreement, was flawed, and because the leaders of the world then ignored the explicit statements of Hitler and the rest of Nazi German's leaders. These things are also true about Iran, which also clearly states openly that its aim is to destroy the state of Israel.

The Defense Ministry continued by stating that the Iran deal "only damages the uncompromising struggle we must make against terrorist states like Iran."
Thursday, Obama fibbed that "Israeli military and security community...acknowledges this has been a game-changer, the country that was most opposed to the deal."
Obama has been lying about the Iran deal all along, of course. His White House now brags that they crafted a fictionalized account of the deal wherein the "election" of "moderate" Hassan Rouhani ushered in an opening for diplomacy - even though in truth, Obama had been pursuing a deal long before Rouhani's election. The White House lied throughout the Iran deal process on the elements of the deal and its secret side-sections. They lied that it wasn't a treaty. They lied that it would contain Iran's nuclear ambitions. They lied that Iran hadn't captured American sailors to humiliate the United States. This week, they're lying that they didn't pay a $400 million ransom to free American hostages.
Israel's already been screwed by the deal, of course. Iran is using American-freed money to pay off Hezbollah and Hamas, terrorist groups who will use that cash to kill Israeli children. And Obama's bragging about it. No wonder Israel's ticked.
Sadly, the Iran deal is significantly worse than Munich. First, when Munich took place, there was no Munich precedent - there was no model of diplomatic appeasement failure. Second, Neville Chamberlain was at least arguably attempting to buy time to allow Britain and its allies to build up their own militaries to fight the German war machine. In this case, America could step on Iran with its pinkie toe, or let Israel do it - but instead, Obama chose to cave to the Iranians.
In any case, this is just the latest proof that Obama's not only a horrible liar, but that he has no interest in any of our allies, especially the Israelis. They know it.
