I wasn't sure what Benjamin Netanyahu would say. Some are disappointed that Netanyahu didn't come out forcefully against President Obama.
I'm glad he didn't. By not doing so, Netanyahu gave Obama no reason to retaliate against him or his people, to cut the Israelis off. Details of Obama's Iranian deal seem safe, for now.
The word that I believe that is prophetic that came from Daniel at Prayers for the People (and referenced in yesterday's post), Collapse, Destruction, and our Back against Israel, says the following (emphasis mine):
Israel and the Obama administration will begin to strain ties, the ties will come to a breaking point. The pride of the Obama administration will be the cause of the split and the trigger for America's fall. She (Israel) will act without the consent of the Obama administration, thus causing the prideful administration to cut her off. She (America) will have lost her saving grace; she will be now as another nation who curses the apple of God's eye. This will be the beginning of her tragic collapse.
I wondered yesterday if Netanyahu's speech was the acting 'without consent of the Obama administration.'
Yesterday, while reading at various sites to see what the reactions were to Netanyahu's speech, I found the following that really caught my eye.
There are two reports indicating that in retaliation for Netanyahu speaking to Congress Obama has (1) CUT OFF any further intelligence cooperation with Israel, and (2) indicated on MONDAY that he will CUT OFF any further defense aid to Israel.
That this occurred on Monday indicates that even the DAY BEFORE Netanyahu's speech (and AFTER his arrival here in the United States), President Obama was still threatening Netanyahu not to speak or else. Obama did not even wait to hear what Netanyahu had to say, which means he didn't care. It was enough that Netanyahu defied his wishes, so now it is time to make Netanyahu, thus the Israelis, pay.
“Report: Obama Has Cut Intelligence Cooperation with Israel,” Israel National News, March 2, 2015
Excerpts (emphasis mine):
In response to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s opposition to the nuclear deal he warns threatens Israel’s very existence, US President Barack Obama’s administration has reportedly cut American intelligence cooperation with Israel.
According to senior Israeli sources cited in the report, Obama has not only made clear he will not meet with Netanyahu, but is even refusing to talk with the Israeli prime minister on the telephone during his visit.
The report is not the first indicating a harsh backlash by the Obama administration against Netanyahu’s opposition to the nuclear deal.
On Monday the US denied Israeli reports that it plans to cut defense aid to Israel over the disagreement.
If this is the event and the cutting off that Collapse, Destruction is referencing, then watch the economy.
Collapse, Destruction excerpt:
The economy will soon collapse under the failed bailouts and trillions that were thrown to the swine.
And along the lines of the principle 'as we do unto Israel,' then I would suspect that we may encounter a notable security event here in the U.S. since we 'cut off' intelligence sharing and promised to 'cut off' defense aid.
Something to watch.
THE SIGN OF MONICA:
Also in yesterday's post, note was made of 'the sign of Monica.'
. . . Monica is a sign, a sign of ruin. Monica is about secret sexual indiscretion and marital infidelity and lying and perjury and scandal and impeachment and disbarment . . .
Three interesting stories occurred yesterday on the SAME DAY as President Obama turned his back on Benjamin Netanyahu, all involving lying, scandal and even ruin.
1. Hillary Clinton, :

2. David Petraeus:

3. President Obama:
This one is interesting -- the man who gave President Obama his Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, appears to have lost his job over it. The first sign of ruin?

It would seem to me that an interesting sign also occurred yesterday.
Here is a screen capture from Drudge.
Benjamin Netanyahu stated in his speech that the current deal that President Obama is offering the Iranians DOES NOT prevent the Iranians from having a bomb, but PAVES THE WAY for them to have a bomb.

It is interesting, therefore, that Jon McNaughton would release the following painting of President Obama. Please click on to see.

THE ESTHER STORY:
I have posted several links to those who thought there was a parallel between Benjamin Netanyahu coming to speak to Congress and the story of Esther. I've been asked which roles I thought Obama and Netanyahu represent.
In his speech Netanyahu referenced the Esther story and made plain that he believed that the Jews were facing a similar situation with a similar Persian king, so that's clear who the king is.
I believe Benjamin Netanyahu is similar to Mordechai, who learned of a plot to kill the Jews and made the necessary moves to expose it and stop it. It seems to me that President Obama is very similar to Haman. Haman is the one who had a plan back then; Obama is the one who has the plan now.
Haman hated Mordechai, that's why he hatched the plan that he did -- Haman did not feel that Mordechai showed him the honor that he felt he deserved. Obama hates Netanyahu; and like Haman does not feel that Netanyahu (Mordechai) shows him the honor that he believes he is entitled to.
Haman's plan involved the Jews WITHOUT their knowledge. Obama's plan involves the Jews WITHOUT their input. In fact, as noted several days ago, Obama was no longer allowing information about the discussions to be given to the Israelis, AND now we learn that on Monday, Obama CUT OFF any intelligence sharing.
And one additional parallel that perhaps should be noted: wives aren't often mentioned in the Bible, but Haman's wife is. In the story of Esther, Haman consulted his wife about his plan against the Jews. Obama is similar in that he also has a woman he consults, perhaps even more so than his own wife, and that's Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. On the day of Netanyahu's speech, it was JARRETT not Obama's wife, who offered a statement to the media about what Obama would be doing while Netanyahu was speaking.
Valerie Jarrett: Obama Won’t Watch Netanyahu Speech Because He Is Too Busy, Has A “Full Day”…
We know from the story of Esther that Haman was exposed and hung from the gallows, by the PERSIAN king. It is highly unlikely that will happen to Obama.
He actually did -- on Iran's Revolution Day. Obama was paraded thru the streets in effigy, HANGING FROM GALLOWS.
Interesting timing, no?
Gesenius gives us an interesting note about the meaning of Haman's name in Sanskrit -- it is associated with the planet Mercury.
Mercury, as we have seen in past posts, is the Roman form of Hanuman, the Hindu monkey god that Obama carries in his pocket.
Overall, it did not end well for Haman. It did for Mordechai.
MY PERSPECTIVE ON THE SPEECH:
The Full Profound Speech From Israeli PM Netanyahu
For me, Benjamin Netanyahu's speech can be summed up in one question. Benjamin Netanyahu laid out his case then asked President Obama (albeit without specifically addressing President Obama) with this question:
Are you sure you want to do this?
Other perspectives on Benjamin Netanyahu's speech:
From Ralph Peters:
“I thought it was pretty damn sad that the American people have to hear the truth from the prime minister of Israel about Islamist fanaticism and the struggles we’re seeing in the Middle East,” Peters said. “And our own president won’t even call Islamist terrorism ‘Islamist terrorism.’ Martha, there is no question the vituperative, vicious Democratic reaction to the speech … was because Benjamin Netanyahu told the truth and Obama has not. Netanyahu called him out. And this is a president who still has levelled with the American people about why he is doing the deal, what the deal contains — the Iranian nuke deal — and what the threat is and it is not. So again, I thought Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech was needed. It was masterful. It was honest. It was inspiring. And Democrats in response, including the president, acted like snitty, bitchy high school girls.”
