Warmonger Rupert Murdoch says that Obama is a “Nightmare for Israel” if elected
Murdoch: Obama 2nd term, Israel’s nightmare

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has minced no words in mauling US President Barack Obama and his running mate, US Vice President Joe Biden’s electoral campaign over a tweet attack.
“Nightmare for Israel if Obama wins,” tweeted the chairman and CEO of the sprawling News Corporation media conglomerate on Saturday.
“Biden outright lied about personal relations with Bibi (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu),” Murdoch said after the VP called Netanyahu “my friend for 39 years.”
“Biden threw CIA under bus, now WH throws State!” he wrote.
Listed three times as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, Murdoch is known for exploiting his vast media empire to push for war in Iraq, former US President George W. Bush’s election, spreading resentment of Muslims and immigrants, and blocking global action on climate change.
The verbal attack followed Obama’s calling a September 2 demand by the Israeli premier for the international community to set a “clear red line” for Iran to halt its nuclear energy program, just “noise,” he tried to ignore.
The United States, Israel, and some of their allies have accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program with the Israeli regime repeatedly threatening to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities based on the unsubstantiated allegation.
Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
