Netanyahu Seeks Dirty Harry Moment With Iran as Trump Arrives

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to persuade President Donald Trump to impose tough new sanctions on Iran for threatening Israel with ballistic missiles and bankrolling terrorism, a close adviser said.

The restrictions would aim to inflict damage in the same way that blocking money transfers did before Iran signed the 2015 agreement to curtail its nuclear program, said Michael Oren, a deputy cabinet minister to Netanyahu and his former ambassador to the U.S. The Israeli leader was among the most outspoken opponents of the deal and relishes the prospect of renewed confrontation if Iran violates its terms, he said.

“That’s a ‘Dirty Harry’ moment,” Oren said in an interview on Thursday in Tel Aviv, referring to the style of brinkmanship adopted by Clint Eastwood’s detective in the 1971 movie. “You have to exact a price for Iranian behavior.”

Trump is flying to Israel on May 22 from Saudi Arabia, which is also pushing the president to get tough on Iran. Trump has described the nuclear deal as a “disaster” and this week imposed new sanctions on Iran over its missile program -- ahead of the country’s presidential election on Friday.

1. Netanyahu was a Commando in ''Sayeret Matkal''( the Delta of the IDF) for 5 years

He took part in dozens of cross border raids in 1967-70, Wounded in action multiple times. After getting out of the Active Israeli Army he returned in 1973 to fight Egyptian Commandos along the Suez Canal, and a Long Range Mission into Syria that is still classified today. Bibi IS "Dirty Harry"

2. Well one thing for certain, he certainly knows how to do "apartheid" in fine fashion, indeed.

The entire bastard state you call israel was founded on many acts of terrorism against many innocent people.

I recommend, for those interested, the book and the dark history of israels creation, "By Way Of Deception: The Making Of A Mossad Officer" that the israeli gov't attempted to have banned in the USA as they successfully did in Canada.

Check it out: By Way Of Deception: The Making Of A Mossad Officer by Victor Ostrovsky .

The # 1 New York Times best seller the Israeli foreign intelligence agency The Mossad tried to ban. The making of a Mossad officer is the true story of an officer in Israel's most secret agency. The first time the Mossad came calling, they wanted Victor Ostrovsky for their assassination unit, the kidon. He turned them down. The next time, he agreed to enter the grueling three-year training program to become a katsa, or intelligence case officer, for the legendary Israeli spy organization. By Way of Deception is the explosive chronicle of his experiences in the Mossad, and of two decades of their frightening and often ruthless covert activities around the world. Penetrating far deeper than the bestselling Every Spy a Prince, it is an insider's account of Mossad tactics and exploits. In chilling detail, Ostrovsky asserts that the Mossad refused to share critical knowledge of a planned suicide mission in Beirut, leading to the death of hundreds of U.S. Marines and French troops. He tells how they tracked Yasser Arafat by recruiting his driver and bodyguard; how they withheld information on the whereabouts of American hostages, paving the way for the Iran-Contra scandal; and how their intervention into secret UN negotiations led to the sudden resignation of ambassador Andrew Young and the downfall of his career. By Way of Deception describes the shocking scope and depth of the Mossad's influence, disclosing how Jewish communities in the U.S., Europe, and South America are armed and trained by the organization in secret ?self-defense? units, and how Mossad agents facilitate the drug trade in order to pay the enormous costs of its far-flung, clandestine operation. And it portrays a network that has grown dangerously out of control, as internal squabbles have led to the escape of terrorists and the pursuit of ?policies? completely at odds with the interests of the state of Israel. This document is possibly the most important and controversial book of its kind since Spycatcher.

5. And that is a Lie, plain and simple, but hey I do understand WHY you need to say things like that

there's always that fringe element like daily stormers and extreme lefties who hate jews and wish the Holocaust was successful.

Since earlier this week you questioned the Loyalty of Jewish Americans but not Catholic Americans or Irish Americans, etc. you gave yourself away as an anti Semite

6. Is there a special "dress code" I should adhere to when wearing that label?

Would hate to be out of compliance and since you seem to be an authority on antisemites, I suppose you are a good one to ask.

Might have to go shopping tomorrow...just for you.
