What's Going On???

This past week:
  • (A few weeks ago) Obama removed Iran and Hezbollah off the United States' terror list. 
  • Obama is negotiating with Iran, while its leader, Khamenei, vows to fly the flag of jihad over the white house. 
  • Obama congratulated the Israeli people on having a democratic election, but seems to have forgotten to congratulate Netanyahu on his win. Congratulating an ally is standard practice in politics, but it seems that Obama want to waste his time. 
  • Obama has spent US tax dollars through the State Department on V15, an organization that brings Israeli Arab voters to polls so as to overthrow the current right-wing government. 
  • The US is pushing for a UN resolution on a two-state solution 
All of these facts are unbiased. They are simply facts. 
1. A few facts about Iran that everybody should know about:
It has been accused of funding, providing weapons and equipment of, and training terrorists by the international community.
It has trained and armed terrorist groups such as Gama'a al-Islamiyah, the Egyptian Al-Jihad, and the Algerian G.I.A.
Iran has strong ties to Al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization that was responsible for the 9-11 attacks.
Iran's government had been extremely unreliable in the past. Iran's former President Hassan Rouhani boasted about Iran using sanctions as cover to advance it nuclear program, stating that "While we were talking to the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing [nuclear] equipment in... the facility in Isfahan... In fact, by creating a calm environment, we were able to complete the [nuclear ] work in Isfahan."
Current president, extremist Ali Khamenei, is responsible for Iran's human rights violations, sponsorship of global terrorism, and violations of the UN's nuclear non-proliferation treaty. 
2. Hezbollah’s origins and ideology stem from the Iran. Hezbollah believes that the US is to blame for many of Lebanon's problems. Israel is seen as an extension of the US and a foreign power in Lebanon. Hezbollah has funded the Palestinian Authority, and collaborated with other terrorist organizations, such as Hamas, to conduct attacks against Israel. It even improved its recruitment so as to more efficiently infiltrate Israel’s international borders. It also continued to smuggle arms and advanced weapons into Lebanon from Syria and Iran and the PA.
While many believe that the US is tied up in a mess with the Middle East because of its supporting Israel, this is simply not the complete picture. These are radical Islamist militant groups we are talking about. They despise western culture and anything that does not conform to their ideology. So wether the US does or doesn't support Israel, these barbarians are aimed towards getting rid of all western culture. 
3. Why would the leader of the US, the man who has the strongest voice on earth, even consider negotiations with a leader who has been untrustworthy in the past, and the cause of terrorism and human rights violations? Not only that. If Iran gets nuclear power, all of the other countries in the Middle East will want the same + more because none of them trust Iran. Conclusion: an already unstable region fighting with nuclear weapons. This won't be good for anybody- not just Israel. 
4. Obama may be frustrated with having to deal with Netanyahu and Israel, but Netanyahu is doing what he believes is right for his country. Israel is a tiny state- smaller than NJ. The Jewish people have been threatened to be annihilated many times throughout history. Netanyahu worries for his country and, if anything, is a strong leader for speaking out despite the international community's constant judgments of him. What is his other alternative. Negotiate? Come to terms? Hasn't Israel done that already? Many times over. And it is still struggling because people simply do not want it to exist. And as the leader of the only democratic country in the Middle East, the US should show more support for it, rather than foolishly negotiating with Iran. All the signs are written on the walls, but they are being ignored. 
5. Obama did not meet with Netanyahu before the Israeli elections because Obama did not want to effect another country's elections. However, he payed an organization to try and get Netanyahu out of office. No further comments needed. 
6. Obama wants a two-state solution? Great. Israel has tried to discuss negotiations many times before. Israel has given up land in the past. However, according to Obama and his administration, Israel isn't doing enough. Meanwhile, the PA and Hamas use money given to the Palestinians by the international community, to build terror tunnels and cause destruction in Israel. If anybody needs to be told how to negotiate deals, it's definitely not Israel. Israel is no longer a tiny, dependent country. It is one of the most advanced economically in the world. It is also one of the top investors in the American Economy. Israel and its leaders need to stop being treated like fools. Especially for the sake of the US- its leaders and its people are being taken as fools by the leaders of the militant groups that the Obama Administration seems to be trying to appease. 
In conclusion, things don't seem to be adding up properly.
Some people seem to be confused about why Israel is being treated differently lately, and why on earth Obama and Kerry would want to give nuclear power to Iran. I really try to see both sides- honestly, to the best of my ability. However, it doesn't really make sense to me either.
