Speaking today at the dedication of Jerusalem’s Road Number 9, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the opportunity, as he so often does in public appearances that have nothing to do with Iran, to talk about Iran.
In the comments, Netanyahu railed against the ongoing nuclear negotiations, saying any deal that ended with Iran being allowed to keep its uranium centrifuges would leave it “much worse than the threat of Islamic State.”
Iran has had the centrifuges for years, and has been using them for their civilian nuclear program, enriching uranium to the low levels needed for power generation, they’ve never even attempted to enrich anywhere near the levels required for nuclear weapons.
But this is Israel we’re talking about, and the nation has made a political industry out of overplaying the Iranian “threat,” and has also been keen to downplay the ISIS takeover of northern Syria, with officials repeatedly insisting that ISIS is preferable to the Assad government, because the later is an ally of Iran.
Though one might figure Israel to be rethinking this with al-Qaeda fighters now on their Syrian frontier, it seems that the preference is still toward hyping the Iranian “nuclear threshold,” and alarming claims that Iran is within however many months of building a nuclear bomb, claims that have been ongoing for decades at this point without ever coming to pass.

S.T.F.U netenyahoo. At least Iran isn't worse than Ebola for him. Yet…
But how many North Koreas is Iran again?

Most Americans (63.9 percent) believe Israel has an arsenal of nuclear weapons. This belief may make them resent costly demands to buy weapons to maintain Israel's so-called "qualitative military edge" since Israel has long possessed the ultimate military deterrent.
A majority of Americans (58.5 percent) mistakenly believe that Iran also has nuclear weapons. No western government or intelligence agency claims Iran has built a weapon. However a sustained campaign by anti-Iran groups in the U.S. and news media failures have apparently led most Americans to believe an Iranian bomb already exists.
And that's obviously what he's after. There's at least one likely purpose. Israeli activity against the US since at least the 60s has left quite a trail, some of that is evidence of their theft of US nuclear material, and at least one item leads specifically to Netanyahu. Imagine the backlash if it hit a lot of people at once: not only was it their enthusiasts (and perhaps agents) that lied you into Iraq, they're also the 'wmd' / CBR kings and it came from you without your consent.
Netanyahoo and the zionists are playing the long game. It's clear that they are lying about Iran and want the U.S. to fight their unnecessary wars. They and their neocon filth succeeded in using using our military to create chaos in Iraq and based upon that success and their control of Congress they are confident that eventually Iran will be next. The neocons have manuevered U.S. policy to militarily confront Russia, which had the temerity to stop Obama from bombing Syria, an Israeli target. Unless the neocons are purged or marched to the gallows, we are headed to even more serious problems.
Bibi Bonkers has an endless supply of existential threats. They are interchangeable. As the first of the month approaches the real question is who will be the newest Hitler-of-the-Month winner – Rouhani, Obama, Abbas, Ahmadinejad or that old standby, Ron Paul. Rumor has it that there are two newbies on the list of potential nominees, John Kerry and Jason Ditz. Gentlemen, place your bets.
Don't you know? Putin=Hitler, at least for the uneducated.
i.e. the rogue state is happy with IS
STFU baby killer. I do not understand western media and even people. How the hell does this proven criminal have ears to listen to him. Only option is the ICC
Since the world has largely decided the ISIS is far more horrible than Iran, Netanyahu puts Israel even farther outside the world's mainstream, isolating themselves. Next step: overt pariah.
We should be so lucky.
This war criminal takes us all for fools.
Most Americans are.
This butcher of Gaza has the temerity to condemn Iran when his hands are covered with the blood of over 500 Gaza children.
I am Jewish and a defender of Israel's right to exist. However this sick evil twisted little man, Netanyahu is far more dangerous to world peace than ISIS or Iran could ever dream of being.
The Palestinians have a right to defend themselves and a right to exist. To borrow one of the dumb phrases of the radical Israelis, Israel wants to "push them into the sea".
Send him more money, overtly and covertly, and see how fast he shuts up! He is the US dog on leash!
"i'm Bibi and i'm here to tell you to avert your eyes from me flattening Palestinians with all manner of modern weaponry and look at those shifty looking Iranians, i think they are up to something"
What is it that ICC is waiting for, this man needs to be handcuffed and police escorted to jail last week. Israeli government is as fascist as ISIS is, as rascistic as ISIS is, as idiot as Saudis, Turkish and all other that helping ISIS are, Israeli government is one of those.
"What is it that ICC is waiting for"
Among other things, jurisdiction.
Okay, even if we accept the premise that Iran is worse than ISIS, that still doesn't answer the question: Who is worse than Hitler this week?
And I'm still a bit confused by the whole 'worse than' accusation- Stalin was far worse than Hitler, yet he's hardly ever mentioned in the 'worse than' articles and speeches. Mao, too, yet he's hardly ever mentioned.
Instead of saying "So-and-So is worse than Hitler" maybe we should stir things up and say "Well, even Hitler was better than So-and-So" and see how that goes down with The Lobby.
