Last week in a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the Obama Administration promised the PA that, “the US foresees the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.”
The Administration went on to tell the Arabs that, "The American administration was very friendly to the position of the PA," reversing all American Policy since 1947. Obama also informed Abbas that, “he would not let Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "get in the way" of normalizing U.S. relations with the Arab and greater Muslim world.” the balance of Middle –East relations will change for at least the next four years.
This latest turn of events states the very obvious, at least to conservatives. He promised his support to Israel during his campaign, and therefore garnered campaign funds from the Jewish voters. Obama had surrounded himself with Muslims before, during and after his campaign, and now another lie has been perpetrated on the American Public. This latest stance will not only change the balance of power in the Middle-East, but will only serve to increase the chance of increased violence if Israel sees no support from the US.
Israel, although small in size can certainly handle itself, as they proved in the Seven Day War in 1967. While their win was more than decisive, it was somewhat reserved in the goals of their Administration. Nobody can compare one war to another, but their resolve and ability to overcome enormous odds can’t be discounted, and their military hardware is not only the best in the world, but the stockpile is huge.
I think Obama underestimates Israel’s abilities and resolve to exist against terrorism. Their models of how to treat terrorism are used worldwide, and their intelligence agencies are second to none. When we see repeated air drills and war games, you can bet NOBODY will catch them off guard, including the newest Muslim supporter Barack Obama.
