Bibi’s Dilemma — and Barack’s

“Bibi” Netanyahu was disgusted.

“My initial reaction is that Iran has gotten a freebie. It has got five weeks to continue enrichment without any limitation.”

The Israeli prime minister was referring to Saturday’s meeting in Istanbul of the P5-plus-1 — the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — with representatives from Iran.

Subject: Iran’s nuclear program. After a “constructive” meeting of one day, all agreed to meet again in Baghdad, May 23, and departed.

For Bibi, it was a strategic defeat.

For Israel’s goal is a halt to Iran’s enrichment of uranium and the removal of enriched uranium from that country.

But Catherine Ashton, the foreign minister for the European Union who is leading the P5-plus-1, stated that the West accepts Iran’s position that, as a signatory to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, she has a right to a peaceful nuclear program and nuclear power.

“Iran’s right to the peaceful use of nuclear power” must be fully respected, Ashton said. No one dissented.

If the United States assents to Iran’s enrichment of uranium, and Iran gives assurances that the Ayatollah’s fatwa against the acquisition of nuclear weapons is being observed, a Washington-Tehran deal may be in the offing.

What would be the elements?

You're welcome.... the answer to Pat's question is as one commented at the original post:

{“Israel cannot do to Iran what Bibi wants done to Iran. Only Obama can.
But how does Bibi get Obama to do it, before November?”

The answer, Pat, is that Bibi and Ehud will mastermind ANOTHER”catalyzing” event, this time (not in NYC but) in Barack’s Chicago – if nothing else work for them.}

Bibi is frustrated!

"No wonder Bibi is frustrated. If there is no U.S. attack on Iran by November, and Obama wins, there may never be a U.S. attack on Iran. Israel cannot do to Iran what Bibi wants done to Iran. Only Obama can. But how does Bibi get Obama to do it, before November?"

Thanks for posting it here.
