The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
Not for the first time, Carter-era National Security Advisor (and anti-Semite/anti-Israel) Zbigniew Brzezinski advised shooting down Israeli aircraft to prevent them from striking the nuclear facilities of a mortal enemy that has vowed the destruction of the Jewish state. It appears, if this report is true, that Obama actually agreed to such a notion.
Israel is far from a perfect ally, and they can be a thorn in the side of America even at the best of times. But they are the only western-style free democracy in the Middle East. They are also a valuable friend. Conversely, Iran is an oppressive theocracy that has promised the destruction not only of Israel but of the United States, as well. They are a destabilizing force in a strategic region, hostile to American interests and to those of our allies.
That Obama chose to heed the advice of the National Security Advisor of a pathetic weakling of a President speaks volumes (though Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Bismarck). That he chose to make such a strong threat against an ally rather than our myriad Islamic fundamentalist enemies is positively thunderous. Obama hates American power and influence, just as he does that of Israel and the UK. He is an Islamist sympathizer and a statist communist, just as Rudy Giuliani had the courage to say publicly. Obama is positively hot for a deal with Iran that would cede to them the ability to develop nuclear weapons, which they have promised to use against Israel.
The notion that the US would threaten an ally who wanted to strike Iran would seem preposterous under any other President. I don’t know if it is true now, either, but such a thing is much more plausible with an anti-American, anti-Western communist in the White House.
What would have been the effect if Ronald Reagan had made a similar threat and stifled the Osirak strike? Or George W. Bush had threatened Israel into canceling the attack on Syria’s nuclear facility in 2007?
There are 600+ days left of this malignant cabal of anti-American ultra-liberals in the Executive Branch. One hopes there remains something resembling the United States of America on Inauguration Day, 2017. And that our credibility and relationships with our allies around the world have not been irreparably damaged. On Tuesday I will listen to Benjamin Netanyahu carefully. I hope others do, too.
