Iran pans Netanyahu speech as Sunni Arabs support

Pre- and post-speech reaction to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to congress so far has fallen along sectarian lines with Iran negative and Sunni Arabs uncharacteristically positive.

Iranian media was quick to broadcast negative reactions to the speech by US politicians and the EU.

"The speech today by the Zionist regime's prime minister was boring and repetitive ... and part of the hardliners' election campaign in Tel Aviv," said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham as reported by Iranian news agency IRNA. Iran says its nuclear energy program is solely for civilian purposes, not bombs, and it is in talks with six world powers with an end-June deadline.

Iran’s Press TV ran a number of headlines such as, “Pelosi slams Netanyahu ‘insult’ to US,” “I didn’t watch Netanyahu speech: Obama,” and another from the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini who said “spreading fears” about Iran’s nuclear program was “not helpful.”

Speaking just before Netanyahu's address, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in Switzerland for talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, said the Israel leader was "trying to create tension" in the negotiations, which face an end-of-March deadline to reach a framework accord.

On the other hand, the Saudi-backed Al Arabiya ran an extremely pro-Israel article by Faisal J. Abbas, the Editor-in-Chief of its English website on Tuesday titled, “President Obama, listen to Netanyahu on Iran.”

“It is extremely rare for any reasonable person to ever agree with anything Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says or does,” he began, then adding, “However, one must admit, Bibi did get it right, at least when it came to dealing with Iran.”

“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: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Although, the latter never seems to write back!).” said Abbas.

In a separate article on Monday in the Saudi daily Al-Jazirah that was reported on by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), columnist Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj supported Netanyahu’s decision to speak at the US Congress against a nuclear deal with Iran.

"I will conclude by saying the following: Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the US's longtime allies in the Gulf,” said the Saudi writer, according to the report.

“I am very glad of Netanyahu's firm stance and [his decision] to speak against the nuclear agreement at the American Congress despite the Obama administration's anger and fury,” said Faraj, going on to conclude, “I believe that Netanyahu's conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents. Do you agree with me?"

Here's my speech to Iran and its leaders.

May you be sexual assaulted syphilis ridden wolverines and all your sons' testicles wither up and all off. And with a bit of luck, herd of live camel spiders will make their home up deep inside your nasty little brain cavity.

Love, Uncle Danny
