Life Lessons with Judy Simon
If Israel is America's closest ally in the region, then why is Obama trying to tie the Jewish state's hands in the face of an existential threat?
Even as the would-be Hitler of Persia, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, races towards the nuclear finish-line, the man sitting in the White House is doing little to stop him.
Indeed, as the Financial Times reports today, the Obama administration seems more concerned about Israel defending itself against Iran than about the Ayatollah's atomic ambitions.
According to the FT, CIA Chief Leon Panetta paid a secret visit to Israel two weeks ago. His goal was not to reassure the Jewish state or even allay its fears of a second Holocaust. Instead, his primary objective was to make sure that Israel does not attack Iran's nuclear installations without notifying the US in advance.
Doesn't the head of the CIA have better things to do with his time?
It seems that Washington is beginning to panic over a possible Israeli response much more than over the likelihood of Tehran being able to pull the nuclear trigger. Does this make sense?
If Israel is America's closest ally in the region, then why is Obama trying to tie the Jewish state's hands in the face of an existential threat? Whose side is Obama on?
