Washington Times to Obama: Stop Iran Not Israel

In an editorial, the Washington Times newspaper has slammed the Obama administration for pressuring Israel while ignoring Islamic extremists and Iran.

“Ultimately, the more serious problem for the United States is not a distancing between us and Israel but a failure to grasp that the shared threats to both nations -- the Islamist totalitarianism that has flourished in the oxygen-free environment of the Arab world and the rise of the Revolutionary Guard class in Iran -- will not be mitigated with the resolution of the Palestinians' fate. That President Obama misses this key point is troubling indeed.”

The paper also noted that “Israel has a higher approval rating these days than does President Obama.”
