-- -- back to the special -- audience edition of Hannity now while Israel's President Shimon Peres says that President Obama would attack Iran in order prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Is that really the case unfortunately we may -- find out sooner than later.
Now earlier this week Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Iran.
Would need about one year to build a nuclear -- join me now with how this would all affect the US and would -- and should we confront this rogue regime.
Dario congressman Peter King John great -- -- thank you what do you think.
I think first well as an American you want to prisoners you -- you want to take the right action against Iran but I just think you view his actions OS four years an apology tour.
-- moral equivalency between Israel and the Palestinians.
The refusal to call -- Islamist -- jihadist.
It just creates doubt and that fact and did nothing during the summer of 2009 in the was a chance to really move against Iranian government.
And the fact that he treated Israel worsen any ally worsen any enemy has been treated and Israel Netanyahu came to the -- White House he was treated like -- -- It was -- this is all true and for those that this why why would Israel by with the prime minister who's a very Smart man and I've interviewed him many many times.
Why would he should he trust Obama because I wouldn't trust -- thousand.
Or he feels he has still we should probably does matter what's going on behind the scenes that's all Republicans -- myself.
Well I think that.
Again Netanyahu is very Smart guy and I'm hoping -- behind the scenes his -- pressures making the case what has redone and also I think he's made it clear that he has to we will act unilaterally.
And that could be enough to bring pres Obama rent rather than having Netanyahu going author's own but I again I'm sure -- I was very concerned.
-- three instances though he left Netanyahu in the White House and decide you change your mind come get me right and he -- right that's a way to treat even.
An enemy Hebron a foreign state for the second was something in the US so we would never do and that's ask Israel to go back to 67 borders and then we got the whole incident -- Nicholas Sarkozy.
Who says so and Netanyahu is a liar I got to deal of them every week.
I mean I was pretty rude to.
Odds against a whole pattern of rudeness and -- Netanyahu is a big boy.
I think he personally might have voted I think what concerns Jim is what does that show about President Obama Israel and six what his feelings is -- going -- Go to war with a ran.
In defense of a country.
Who feel so bad -- reported sort of prime minister.
And that's when that our story about if the president was wound to publicly -- that now that way he was sending you -- let's also well -- opposition the Middle East.
Now because -- our enemies our allies the Middle -- see how we treat our main allies.
And that encourages the enemies -- discourages allies are.
If you're Netanyahu -- you see Obama given F sixteen's.
Tanks one point five billion to the former head of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Who thinks the Israelis are descendants of apes and pigs what do you what do you think and I know I'd be taken.
I that's because you're the only rational federal as we can control with the Egyptian military.
That's the only element -- we can try I just asked ambassador Bolton that the military leadership has been changed by -- he is puppets are now in charge of -- -- -- control and otherwise is no -- affiliated.
And more seem colonel Y we go our way to be -- -- -- with -- The fact is things that he's said the insults he's thrown toward the Israelis into a -- And -- -- all -- -- and ask you for the release of the blind -- all of that to show over the top and it goes back to when we again through work.
Mubarak under the bus and I was determined to -- Net amount of what happened in the Arab Spring it was an Arab nightmare right how can he can couldn't see this -- and I was on the air.
Every night ambassador Bolton was on -- we go home -- was there there were some of -- very few -- And articles -- written that set I was Muslim Brotherhood obsessed as I predicted they would be in charge how come I could see that -- and Obama -- -- intelligence couldn't see this coming.
There's a position you Brad and I have been -- ball when we go armor had.
What is inimical to everything Barack Obama stood for he came -- with -- believe there's -- moral equivalency that the US had better allies the Middle East.
US was too aggressive the US was responsible for a lot of the bad actions by the yeah.
That Islamist terrorists and so this was his way.
So -- I think generally believed that this was a real people speaking member he went to release an apology tour almost encourage support is there any evidence -- Obama has evolved out of man caused disaster.
Overseas contingency operation and America's arrogant and he any evidence that he's changed his views and -- -- I will give -- credit for taking -- a number of the top al-Qaeda leaders that he's willing to do.
And but again it's -- -- -- foreign policy.
Because the other hand is still putting Islamic terrorists in civilian courts.
So apologizing for America many ways so no idea I'd say he -- it's gotten so the message we're not all of.
And what and what if you're at it in Israel and you look at at the nomination of of hate goal.
And the nomination of Brendan Brendan said the Jihad is -- legitimate tenant of Islam is is Jihad your interpretation as Jihad a legitimate Tenet and as well and the fact is you kind of different turf.
-- and anyone who ops for the wrong interpretation is gonna -- problems for us.
I thought was naive president and said -- and I find Chuck Hagel more troublesome now.
Because and he was a really hostile toward Israel borderline anti us and yet really what you're out of that would the other way around that involves some of the religion -- some other race nationality.
I was somehow in yen in in the liberal mindset that fits into their view of the world of Israel would just wasn't so dogmatic if they didn't believe so much -- -- -- last important question.
Hamas Hezbollah the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Jihad.
Or ran -- at night I thought it was a geo political earthquake when Auckland any -- went to Cairo and the world and pay attention to what.
Is Israel at risk of being annihilated like they say they want to happen.
Absolutely Israel every day.
It was a -- I think -- were huge day that's why.
Congress and Netanyahu -- so -- Do -- elect yeah Daschle I mean Israel against -- small mistake New Jersey if we wiped out a few nuclear weapons.
And they surrounded by enemies in the worst neighborhood in the world really bad all right congressman thanks for you don't normally he'll be here.
