Al-Arabiya editor endorses Netanyahu
In a piece published before Prime Minister Netanyahu's address
to a joint session of Congress, al-Arabiya editor Faisal Abbas argued that President Obama should listen to Netanyahu on Iran
Abbas, it should be clear, is no fan of Netanyahu, beginning his
column by saying that “It is extremely rare for any reasonable person to
ever agree with anything Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
says. However, one must admit, Bibi did get it right, at least when it
came to dealing with Iran.”
Abbas noted that the Iranian threat is perhaps the “only thing that brings together Arabs and Israelis.”
His main theme, one that Netanyahu would also concentrate on in his
address, was that Iran is a major sponsor of global terror and cause of
instability in the Middle East.
The Israeli PM managed to hit the nail right on the head
when he said that Middle Eastern countries are collapsing and that
“terror organizations, mostly backed by Iran, are filling in the vacuum”
during a recent ceremony held in Tel Aviv to thank outgoing IDF Chief
of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz for his role during “challenging” times.
In just a few words, Mr. Netanyahu managed to accurately summarize a
clear and present danger, not just to Israel (which obviously is his
concern), but to other U.S. allies in the region.

What is absurd, however, is that despite this being perhaps the only
thing that brings together Arabs and Israelis (as it threatens them
all), the only stakeholder that seems not to realize the danger of the
situation is President Obama, who is now infamous for being the latest
pen-pal of the Supreme Leader of the World’s biggest terrorist regime:
Ayottallah Ali Khamenei.
