Obama Gets It Right

Credit where credit is due. Breaking with its usual habit of bending over for the ayatollahs in Iran, the Obama administration has denied a visa to the man Iran had named its next ambassador to the United Nations. Link here.

The man’s name was Hamid Abutalebi. He had been part of the student group that held Americans hostage at the U. S. Embassy in Iran for 444 days in 1980.

Rational beings had pointed out that Abutalebi’s nomination was a slap in the face to America. For once, the Obama administration rejected humiliation.

As I say, credit where credit is due.

Yet Pollard the scumbag goes free though his betrayal actually cost the lives of people behind the Iron Curtain.

We shower Netanhayu with billions even though he praises rabbis who say gentiles are cattle who exist only to serve Jews.

Wasn't a slap in my face. But then I don't recognize the US government as representing me. If the Iranians had refused visas to the war criminal Dulles brothers, would you have supported that?

Peace and free trade with Iran are in America's best interests. This constant picking of fights where none exist is not in our interests.
