Newsmax: D'Souza Says Netanyahu Is Like Reagan; Better Informed Than Obama

Originally published at Newsmax.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s warning to Congress about the nuclear threat of Iran shows he is a “better judge” of the impending menace than President Barack Obama, conservative writer and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza says.

“Netanyahu to me is the closest resurrection that we’ve seen to Ronald Reagan. In other words, if there ever had been a campaign between Reagan and Obama, it would look a little bit like the showdown we’re seeing now,” D’Souza said Wednesday on The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV.

“You’ve got a guy who’s extremely self-confident, very well informed, and quite frankly, obviously a better judge of what poses an existential threat to Israel than Obama is.”

“When Obama patronizingly says, of course, we all have the same goals, the truth of it is, Israel is right there. The mullahs have said we vow to eradicate Israel and … want to get an atomic bomb. You put those two facts together and I can see why Israel is rightfully nervous.”

D’Souza — director of the acclaimed films 2016: Obama’s America and America — said Israel is now in a “precarious” position.

“Israel, going back to the 1940s, had a lot of friends in the world. The Europeans, for example, are very active in the establishment of the Jewish state,” he said.

“The Europeans, for the most part, have become alienated from Israel and America has been Israel’s one stalwart ally, but now the Israelis look to our side and to their dismay they see Obama.

“From the point of view of Netanyahu, the troubling fact is that he faces now two challenges: one is the Iranian mullahs, but the second one is the liberal Democrats, U.S. Congress, and Obama.”

D’Souza said the revelation that Hillary Clinton used a personal email address to conduct government business proves she and other Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, “feel that because they are lawmakers, they are somewhat above the law.”

“Here’s Reid taking money from his campaign program and using it to spend on his daughter or his granddaughter’s wedding; here’s Hillary maintaining private accounts and receiving money from foreign governments,” he said.

“There’s a kind of lawlessness that seems to be at-large here and the real question is that at some level, will this party and will this government be held democratically accountable for that, or is this going to be now seen as part of the way of doing business in America?

“By the way, I come from a country, India, where this kind of lawlessness is pervasive, but I thought one of the special things about America is that here the same people who make the laws have to live under the laws. They don’t get special treatment and that’s what seems to be at stake here,” D’Souza said.

D’Souza also commented on potential presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s declaration that people are not born gay, but become gay by choice.

“This is a case where really both things are true because we’re talking about an orientation on the one hand and conduct on the other,” D’Souza said.

    Dinesh, Keep up the not just good but great work. As you know a large group of legislators boycotted Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to our Congress. Of course, they were all Democrats. This didn’t surprise the great National Review writer, Kevin Williamson. In an article in the current issue of NR, he referred to the criminal enterprise known as the Democratic Party. Yup, guess that fits pretty well! Quite a shame that you go to prison for helping a friend who didn’t have a chance of winning and Barack Hussein Obolo-Measle lies almost daily to the American People and breaks some law whenever he needs to do something that is usually to the detriment of the nation. You’re going to have millions of like minded citizens sitting by your side in that jailhouse. Sincerely, Bill Hershey

    Obama is trying to clear the way for Islam to take over America. That is part of his “Fundamental Change in America”. He isn’t going to side with Israel because he is the West’s insider to help bring about Islamic United States of America. He is working with Iran and the rest of the Arab states to overthrow the Christian/Jewish states. He knows exactly what he is doing. Well to all those who voted for him, I hope you are going enjoy what is coming: women treated as property, wearing a hajab every time you leave your home, no physical contact between a man and a woman in public, women are not to touch men when in public, period, not being able to go shopping in another city without a letter signed by your husband approving the trip, being driven everywhere by a male because your drivers license will be revoked, and on and on. Say “thank you Mr. President” when he turns us over to the Islamic Khalifate. Why else would he be doing a “secret deal with Iran” that will not be brought before Congress to be approved until AFTER the fact.

    We knew his agenda attempting to change the AMERICAN way of life under Islam, since OBAMA continues to lying to the people saying it is a peaceful religion, and hoping skeptics will swallow this garbage as the truth. When it comes to something this important, it is worse than trying to sell OBAMA-Care all over again. Obama is trying to set up the AMERICAN people with the biggest lie of his Presidency, and again if the people fall for this Satanic Lie they might have just sold their fate into a Communist stricken nation. Our FREEDOM as we know it will disappear for ever. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS AT STAKE HERE, HOW MUCH LONGER ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW THE LIARS AND CHEATS GET AAY WITH DESTROYING OUR COUNTY??????? WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO OPEN YOUR EYES AND MIND TO WHAT IS GOING ON BY OUR GOVERNMENT, IS NOT FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE???

    Americans had better awaken from their dream sleep, because this so called peaceful religion will become a nightmare that will drive people crazy trying to combat it after the fact. The changes once implemented will cause the women of this great nation, to actually go off the deep end with the Restrictions Sharia Law will bring to them. Living in today’s soceity as a free female, with liberties they have always had, then all of a sudden pull a plug on those liberties will cause them to take up arms. Once Sharia law is installed it will take a revolution to prevent it from being the law of the land. SHARIA LAW WILL MAKE SLAVES OF THE FEMALE AGENDA IN AMERICA.

    Anyone with a half of a brain can see Obama despises Christianity and adores Islam….he doesnt even try to hide it now because Americans have elected him President TWICE. Only two things can change the slide into the pit..1: a charismatic conservative leader who is pro Israel pro Judeo/Christian principles 2:A revolution with the backing of the army Navy and airforce…unless at least one of the above happens America will go past the point of no return.

    I pray that God would raise you up to president! We need a man like you to stand against the enemies and expose the truth of what is going on behind the scenes. I praise God for your boldness and courage. Please continue to do what you have been doing. Not everybody in America is blind to what is going on. Thank You for putting the truth out there! God Bless!
