As Relations With Israel Plummet To New Low, Obama Cuts Video To Iranian People Praising Ayatollah Khamenei… reads the headline. Almost beyond the scope of believability. He trashes our ally and threatens to go to the U.N., disregarding our Congress and sucks up to the very terrorists that kill and maim our men and women in uniform.
President Obama on Thursday encouraged Iranian leaders to take “the best opportunity in decades” to improve ties with the United States and strike an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.Obama’s comments came in a message marking the Persian New Year celebration of Nowruz as nuclear talks between the U.S., Iran and other world powers enter a critical stretch.
Mr. Obama alluded only obliquely to the Republican letter, saying that “there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you — the people of Iran — is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.”
“This moment may not come again soon,” he says. “I believe that our nations have a historic opportunity to resolve this issue peacefully — an opportunity we should not miss.”
He quotes the 14th-century poet Hafez, whose work is taught to every Iranian schoolchild, citing him writing “be joyful in spring,” for “many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”
