During his powerful speech at the Iranian-American Community symposium “Countering Islamic Fundamentalism, and a Nuclear-Armed Iran” on February 13, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani excoriated the president for his weak and feckless foreign policies.
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Giuliani this animated:
“My 343 firefighters who died on September 11th, my 2700 citizens who died on September 11th, and soldiers of Forth-Hood who died by a man yelling “Allah Akbar” or the Jewish people just setting there, being shot and killed just a few weeks ago in France because they are Jewish. You know what they have in common?”
“They have in common a movement the president of United States will not recognize.”
“They have been murdered, they have been slaughtered, they have been raped, they have been tortured , they have been beheaded, they have been burned by a movement the president of United State will not recognize!”
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?!”
Giuliani noted the current leader of Iran’s long record of duplicity in regards to nuclear power.
“And we’re NEGOTIATING WITH HIM!’ he bellowed. “This is like playing poker with a guy who has cheated you twice before. You know who does that? A MORON!“
“An agreement with Iran with regard to nuclear power is very simple,” he continued, “Iran should not be allowed to get any nuclear power.”
He said that Obama should not be able to come to an agreement with Iran without the consent of Congress.
Giuliani tore into Obama for dishonoring the protected Iranian dissidents at Camp Liberty in Iraq – which he called a virtual concentration camp – thanks to Obama’s neglect.
He lamented that instead of embracing moderate reforms in Iran, Obama is “selling us out” to the Islamic State.
“It must be stopped. It has to be stopped. Our last resort is our Congress, Rudy declared. “And I implore this Congress to stop this weak president from doing things that will be so difficult to reverse!”
“We will not sell out to Iran the way Chamberlain sold out to Hitler!” thundered “America’s Mayor.”
Via Iran Liberty:
Nearly 3,000 Iranian dissidents residing in Camp Liberty near Baghdad airport, MEK opposition members and “protected persons” under the 4th Geneva Convention, have for five years been under bloody attacks and an inhumane medical and logistical siege imposed by Iraqi forces loyal to the Iranian regime.
The deteriorating medical situation resulting from the imposed medical siege has raised the attention of international human rights organizations and dignitaries about inhumane conditions in the camp. Numerous international calls for measures to provide care for the patients in the camp have been made by many from numerous countries, inviting the UN and the Obama administration to take urgent action to save the lives of the patients of this camp.
Signatories of the statement emphasized that: “From 2009 when the protection and security of Ashraf residents was transferred to the Iraqi government, the residents have been gradually placed under a cruel and deteriorating logistical and medical siege.”
Because Obama is so desperate with a nuclear deal with Iran, these poor people have been forsaken.
