If only he could be president of the United States. “Netanyahu: Militant Islam threatening the world,” from AP, May 24 (thanks to all who sent this in):
WASHINGTON (AP) “” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is telling Congress that militant Islam is threatening the world.
Netanyahu urged the U.S. on Tuesday never to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. He said Iran would be able to put a bomb anywhere, from an Israeli subway to a missile that could one day reach Washington.
He called the threat posed by militant Islam the “greatest danger of all.”
UPDATE: Here is what Netanyahu actually said:
When I last stood here, I spoke of the consequences of Iran developing nuclear weapons. Now time is running out. The hinge of history may soon turn, for the greatest danger of all could soon be upon us: a militant Islamic regime armed with nuclear weapons.
Militant Islam threatens the world. It threatens Islam.
“It threatens Islam” — i.e., the real Islam is a Religion of Peace that has been Hijacked by a Tiny Minority of Extremists. This unreality is disappointing to see, and will not bode well for Israel insofar as it continues to translate into policy. Nonetheless, even to acknowledge that the threat has any Islamic character at all is a huge advance over Obama, George W. Bush, David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, et al.
