With friends like Obama why does Israel need enemies?
I subscribe to the Econ101 theory of international relations. It is just basic economics. Whatever you subsidize you get more of. Whatever you penalize you get less of.
So if you reward your enemies, you get more enemies. And if you punish your allies, you get less allies.
Israel is directly in the sights of a regime that has pledged publicly countless times to blow if off the face of the map. So what is Israel to do? Its leaders primary responsibility is the protection of its citizens. Having lost 6 million in the genocide of World War II, I have no doubt that Israel will do whatever it takes to survive as a nation.
"His (Obama's) refusal to commit left Israel on its own while Iran continues on the nuclear path without fear of American intervention as it develops the components for a bomb. This is far too terrifying for Israel, so, with Obama clearly not at his back, Netanyahu declared: 'The world tells Israel, Wait, there’s still time. And I say, Wait for what? Wait until when? Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.' "
In the meantime, Obama turns down a request to meet with Netanyahu but has time to invite Egypt's Muslim Brothehood president to talk and books an appearance on the David Letterman show after doing a radio interview with the Pimp with a Limp. And he always has unlimited time for countless campaign appearances and fundraising events.
By appearing to do all that he can do to avoid any possibility of a war with Iran, it is possble that Obama is making that war inevitable.
