Representative Franks Says Obama Wants Iran To Threaten Israel

Arizona Republican Representative, Trent Franks, made the claim recently that President Obama is allowing Iran to threaten Israel with the possibility of a nuclear weapon.

These bold statements from Franks were issued during the Family Research Council’s radio program, which is hosted by Tony Perkins, the president of FRC.

Perkins and Franks discussed a potential pre-emptive strike from Israel going against Iran, as well as Obama’s touted failure to provide support for Israel.

In a statement Franks said, “I sometimes, Tony, do not have the intellectual wattage to overcome the bewilderment in my heart when an American president stands by and lets Israel, our most vital ally in the world, be threatened by a dangerous, hellish regime like exists in Iran today and allows the potential of jihad, jihad to put their finger on the nuclear button. It is a disgrace that literally defies description in the English language.”

In 2008, the then Senator Obama stated to the AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) that he would be ready to “implement a Memorandum of Understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade -- investments to Israel's security that will not be tied to any other nation."

Obama has kept his word in terms of aid. It was noted in 2012 that Obama has given plenty of financial aid to Israel during his presidency.
