Buttigieg: Netanyahu is ‘turning away from peace’
Buttigieg said he would also rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, from which Trump withdrew last year.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana who has emerged as a strong contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, said there are signs that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “turning away from peace.” “Just as an American patriot may oppose the policies of the American president, a supporter of Israel may also oppose the policies of the Israeli right-wing government,” Buttigieg said Tuesday at a speech at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, unveiling his foreign policy. “Especially when we see increasingly disturbing signs that the Netanyahu government is turning away from peace.”

Buttigieg said “the security and survival of the democratic state of Israel has been and continues to be an essential tenet of U.S. foreign policy” but said he would be willing to use economic leverage to pressure Israel. “If Prime Minister Netanyahu makes good on his promise to annex West Bank settlements, he should know that a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure that American taxpayers won’t help foot the bill,” Buttigieg said, referring to Netanyahu’s pledge before April 9 elections to extend Israeli sovereignty to some Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Netanyahu has said he would welcome the as-yet-to-be-unveiled peace plan drafted by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, while the Palestinians have preemptively rejected it. There are signs that the plan does not point towards Palestinians statehood, and would allow Israel to maintain security control of the West Bank, Netanyahu’s bottom line for any peace plan.

Buttigieg said he would also rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, from which Trump withdrew last year. “As even this administration repeatedly certified, it was preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons,” he said. “It has helped constrain the military threat that Iran poses to Israel and Europe without leading us down a path to another Middle Eastern war. This agreement was concluded not to do Iran a favor, but because it is in our national security interest—just as a parallel policy of confronting Iran’s support for terrorism and abysmal human rights record reflects our values and security interests.”

Trump and Netanyahu believe the plan has loopholes that would allow Iran to launch a nuclear weapons program in the next decade. The crowded field of Democratic candidates in general tend to be critical of Netanyahu, although to widely varying degrees.

Buttigieg makes me glad I don’t live in Indianapolis anymore. It was a “progressive” city during the first election of Obama, and has gotten worse. Finding a solid church there was INCREDIBLY difficult. Even Notre Dame is a bastion of liberalism.

What is the motivation for the globalist (Buttigagged included) for appeasing the muslims?? Not just in Israel but everywhere?

Satan must have big plans for them in his final push to defeat God. I can see no rational explanation for the world's rulers to slobber all over islam?

One of the things is that the muslims are totally against Judaism and Christianity.

At the grocery store yesterday, I was disturbed to see a young woman wearing a Buttigieg for President t-shirt. Afterwards, I thought I should have asked her why she supported him.
As disturbed as you were to see her wearing the t-shirt, you would have been equally, if not more, disturbed by her response, which certainly would have been lacking intelligence. "news" is the garbage that flows in and through social media and is the primary source of information to the youngsters too dumbed down by their progressive educations to recognize what's really happening and/or at stake. ButtBoy is a social media darling and will likely grow in stature amongst a populous stupid enough to support Socialist Bernie and Occasional Cortex, who, by the way, is simply an idiot. She really is as stupid as she sounds.

He would become the first president assassinated by a foreign country by being thrown from the top of a building.
I just cannot see the muslim countries giving him any respect.
But maybe not. The Muslims don’t seem to have a problem with the leftist Muslims in Congress, who have at their core promoting deviant lifestyles?????

Not at the moment, no. Everything that promotes their goal is fine by them.
Until they are in power, than they’ll whistle anoher tune: Death to the infidels! :banning
