Melanie Phillips over on the Speccie has a most telling article about Obama, Israel and Iran.
In essence, she rightly says that Obama is largely ignorant that Israel existed with a Jewish population long before there were Arabs in the way we understand them, and his "policy" in the middle east is to live with a nuclear Iran and let Israel go hang.
Make no mistake: Obama is using Israel for Iran in the same way that Czechoslovakia was used for Hitler. As I have said elsewhere:
"Obama may be sweeping up the image of America, but he may also be laying the foundations for its future disaster. The ” Talk softly and carry a big stick” works extremely well - provided you are willing to use the stick, and Obama shows no sign of being able to do so."
And don't forget - as most people do - that Israel is only some 290 miles long and 85 miles wide at its widest. Aggressors hardly need missiles. They can simply shell the country.
Which is why Israel will never give up the Golan Heights.
