NEW YORK, March 30, 2012 / Christian Newswire/ — A prominent national human rights organization is calling for Congress to open an inquiry into allegations that Barack Obama has leaked information to the press in order to pressure Israel into not defending itself against Iran’s nuclear program.
he American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and its Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) program deplored reports that Obama was moving to prevent Israel from acting in its own defense. ABC News reported Thursday: “Two reports today about Iran’s nuclear program and the possibility of an Israeli military strike have analysts in Israel accusing the Obama administration leaking information to pressure Israel not to bomb Iran and for Iran to reach a compromise in upcoming nuclear talks.”
AFDI/SIOA Executive Director Pamela Geller said in a statement: “Obama’s policies compromise American security. Iran is clearly a threat to America. They have been at war with us since 1979. Israel was willing to do the heavy lifting because our reckless and feckless president was too weak, too compromised. But to betray an ally like this? This leak is part of an ongoing campaign to thwart Israeli defense strategy against the Iranian genocidal threat.”
AFDI/SIOA Associate Director Robert Spencer: “We call on patriotic members of Congress who respect Israel as America’s most reliable ally in the Middle East to launch an immediate full-scale investigation into Obama’s efforts to undermine Israel’s security, and the larger implications of those efforts for our own national security.”
