After a senior Obama official threatened Prime Minister Netanyahu with “a price to pay” for accepting an invitation to address a joint session of the US Congress, my friend Falafel wanted to meet the Threat Czar of Barack Obama to interview him.
He got his wish. Two days later, Falafel Meets Obama’s Threat Czar.
Falafel arrived on time, but Ben Rhodes, the 37-year old genius behind all the turmoil in the region, was about 30 minutes late.
Falafel: “Thanks for the interview. Inside the Beltway pundits refer to you as the Threat Czar of Barack Obama. Are you comfortable with the title?”
Rhodes: “I am just a civil servant who takes orders”
Falafel: “Are you saying your president ordered you to threaten Netanyahu?”
Rhodes: “Next question”
Falafel: “Do you regret issuing the threat?”
Rhodes: “This administration is above regrets”
Falafel: “Many I talked to think Obama is acting like a child? Do you think it has to do with your age?”
Rhodes: (No answer)
Falafel: “What is the mood like inside the White House? Is it true Barack Obama is jumping up and down? Pulling his hair?”
Rhodes: “Nonsense. Valerie is calming him down”
Falafel: “What price will Netanyahu pay?”
Rhodes: “First, we are going to ask Iran to mobilize Hezbollah to strike Israel”
Falafel: “This may backfire”
Rhodes: “Then Obama is going to ask Iran to fire some of its Shahab and Fajr missiles on Israeli cities”
Falafel: “Israel can defend herself with its Iron Dome?”
Rhodes: “Israel will need Obama to replenish some of the materials. Our supreme leader Barack Hussein Obama has been offended and Netanyahu is going to pay for it”
Falafel: “Is this not illegal?”
Rhodes: “Not in our books”
Falafel: “Why does the president hate Israel so much? What gives?”
Rhodes: “For that, you have to ask Valerie. Or better yet, check her secret bank account in Iran that grows with every pro-Iran decision. I am NSC, I should know”
