According to reports, Obama had offered Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu weapons in exchange for them waiting to attack Iran until after the election.
The weapons that were offered would be: bunker busting bombs and refueling planes.
This deal was reported by the Israeli newspaper Maariv and reported on Thursday March 8, 2012.
It is clear that Obama believes talks will work between Iran and Israel. And if this story is true, he believes the weapons would hold Israel off to give time for the talks to work. But unless Iran agrees to halt their nuclear desires, there will be no success in this. Obama should allow Israel to handle their own affairs according to their own safety.
In other news, Palestinian foreign minister had said Obama promised he’d work towards Palestinian statehood after he is re-elected.
