There has been a marked downturn in the rhetoric on war with Iran. Israel is talking ‘give diplomacy a chance’. The US is talking ‘give diplomacy a chance’. The world breathes a sigh of relief.
So… What has changed?…
Well, a few things have changed. Barack Hussein Obama is a week closer to reelection, and Prime Minister Netanyahu is meeting with the US President. THAT is all the change that you need to know to understand the change in rhetoric.
It should be clear to all of us that Obama said something to Netanyahu that either confirmed America’s willingness to defend Israel or scared Netanyahu into changing his tone. Or, both.
The problem is that the US is quick to threaten her allies and is very, very slow to defend them. Israel knows this and must therefore be cynical about trusting the United States. And, since America has betrayed Israel in the past, Israel cannot depend on American promises.
After three years of the Obama administration, you can almost be completely certain of what has happened leading up to the Obama/Netanyahu meeting. Barack Obama undoubtedly promised Netanyahu the sky and everything underneath and issued a threats that any Israeli could believe in.
How do I know this? Well, it is clear to me (and others) that it is more important for Obama to get reelected than for Israel to avoid being annihilated. In fact, the political establishment in America is riddled with psychopaths more than willing to sacrifice six million Jews, if it means another term in office.
But, maybe you don’t see it quite the way that I do. Maybe you believe the promises that have been made. Maybe you even think that President Obama is somehow pro-Israel and would never threaten a country that is near and dear to our hearts. For those of you who still view Obama in a favorable light, let me remind you of the recent past via this important video:
If I had to guess, I’d say that the Obama administration wants to delay war until January, and will throw anyone, and any country, under the bus to make that happen.
