START WITH THIS TRUTH . . . POLITICIANS LIE – THE BIGGER THE POLITICIAN – THE BIGGER THE LIE.
Then there’s another TRUTH . . . ALL DEALS between nations are based upon individual national benefits, and in the end, DEALS between nations are not necessarily worth the promises or the paper they’re drawn upon.
The problem with what I’ve just written . . . is that most of the politicians KNOW IT, while MOST of the people DO NOT . . . and that’s a tragedy in-waiting.
If George W Bush really had Israel’s BACK when he kept saying he did, George W Bush would have either taken out Iran’s Nuclear Program – or at the very least, he would have helped Israel to do so. Which doesn’t mean that I have reason to believe that George W Bush was NOT supportive of Israel, which I believe he was.
But he certainly didn’t have Israel’s BACK . . . at least not all the way.
My late and very SMART Mother, used to say: YOU CAN KNOW ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A PERSON, JUST BY THE FRIENDS HE OR SHE KEEPS.
And we all know . . . who the closest friends were, whom Obama kept – right up till his entry into the White House. AND THEY WERE ALL BAD ACTORS.
There was a man the age of my LATE Father (Ivor McLeod), who was an incredibly interesting land-developer, and WWII veteran, who lived in the semi-rural community (St Lazare), where Anne and I had our first Horse Farm North West of Montreal.
For some fortunate reason, he took a shine to Anne and myself . . . and we mutually enjoyed long conversations together. And during one of those long talks, he said to me about a local builder, who I was thinking of hiring to do some work, who was RECOVERING from a serious past problem with his reputation . . . “BORN A LEOPARD – DIE A LEOPARD”.
This conversation took place more than 25-Years ago, and as I’ve matured and learned more about what I don’t know, I realize that this developer’s years of knowledge and observation did not go STALE with time, and generally . . . TRUISMS simply do not become LESS TRUE.
Even though the VAST number of Americans SUPPORT Israel . . . THE ONLY AMERICAN WHO COUNTS IS THE PRESIDENT. And if the President will not go to war for Israel – America won’t go to war for Israel, and Israel will be on her own.
And that’s exactly where the United States of America and Israel stand right now.
I know enough Israelis, and have enough Jewish friends and relatives to be able to say with confidence – THAT NEITHER ISRAEL, NOR THE JEWS I KNOW expect Americans to fight for the Jewish State.
That said . . . NEITHER I, MY JEWISH FRIENDS, NOR ISRAELIS I know, expect the USA to stand AGAINST Israel EITHER.
The FACT that Obama’s White House has PUSHED Israel to go back to suicidal pre-disengagement (1949) lines, as if these pre-1967 lines were legitimate borders, which they are not . . . is disgraceful.
It is also no less disgraceful how Obama’s White House has been publicly INSULTING Israel, threatening Israel with less . . . to no support at the UN, and how Obama has treated Israel’s Prime Minster Netanyahu . . . the way Obama should have treated the President of Iran.
THE MOST EGREGIOUS EXAMPLE OF TURNING ON ISRAEL . . . is Obama’s promotion of the contemptible IRAN DEAL, which FREES as much as $150-BILLION Dollars, for Iran to finance all the hatred and violence possible against Israel, and Secular Western Societies Everywhere.
Israel and the Jewish people have survived 5,776 years of hatred . . . at the hands of the Philistines, Persians, Pharaohs, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Inquisitions, Pogroms, and the Holocaust . . . AND ISRAEL WILL ALSO SURVIVE OBAMA AND THE IRANIANS.
I watched the 45-Minute Speech delivered by Netanyahu at NOON (October 1, 2015), in a word – it was FABULOUS, delivered from a Statesmen, who looked into the DEVIL’S den, which the world calls the General Assembly – and made it as clear as possible, ISRAEL WILL NEVER GET ON HER KNEES.
But perhaps Netanyahu’s strongest statement, which was also directed at Obama was this:
The United Nations can sign all the documents it wants to . . . BUT ISRAEL WILL DO WHATEVER ISRAEL HAS TO . . .
“Am Yisrael Chai” . . . Long Live Israel.
