President Obama threatens Iran and Syria: "I will always stand with Israel"

by Cem Ertür Friday, Apr. 27, 2012 at 5:38 PM

Ever since the 2008 presidential campaign, President Obama has been using the Holocaust to justify his his war threats against Iran and “unshakeable commitment to Israel's security”. Mr Obama's latest Holocaust remembrance speech on April 23rd targeted Syria as well as Iran.

President Obama threatens Iran and Syria: “I will always stand with Israel”

excerpts from: Remarks by the President at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

by Barack Obama, The White House website, 23 April 2012




"Never again" is a challenge to defend the fundamental right of free people and free nations to exist in peace and security -- and that includes the State of Israel.  And on my visit to the old Warsaw Ghetto, a woman looked me in the eye, and she wanted to make sure America stood with Israel.  She said, "It’s the only Jewish state we have."  And I made her a promise in that solemn place.  I said I will always be there for Israel.
 
So when efforts are made to equate Zionism to racism, we reject them.  When international fora single out Israel with unfair resolutions, we vote against them.  When attempts are made to delegitimize the state of Israel, we oppose them.  When faced with a regime that threatens global security and denies the Holocaust and threatens to destroy Israel, the United States will do everything in our power to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. [...]

Three years ago today, I joined many of you for a ceremony of remembrance at the U.S. Capitol.  And I said that we had to do "everything we can to prevent and end atrocities."  And so I want to report back to some of you today to let you know that as President I’ve done my utmost to back up those words with deeds.  [...]  

We recognize that, even as we do all we can, we cannot control every event.  And when innocents suffer, it tears at our conscience.  Elie [Wiesel] alluded to what we feel as we see the Syrian people subjected to unspeakable violence, simply for demanding their universal rights. [...]  

And so with allies and partners, we will keep increasing the pressure, with a diplomatic effort to further isolate Assad and his regime, so that those who stick with Assad know that they are making a losing bet.  We’ll keep increasing sanctions to cut off the regime from the money it needs to survive.  We’ll sustain a legal effort to document atrocities so killers face justice, and a humanitarian effort to get relief and medicine to the Syrian people.  And we’ll keep working with the "Friends of Syria" to increase support for the Syrian opposition as it grows stronger.  

Indeed, today we’re taking another step.  I’ve signed an executive order that authorizes new sanctions against the Syrian government and Iran and those that abet them for using technologies to monitor and track and target citizens for violence.  [...]  And it’s one more step that we can take toward the day that we know will come -- the end of the Assad regime  [...]
