The Rapid and Harsh Turn Against Israel

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel

Submitted by Dan Rusen (Canada), Jun 3, 2009 at 23:13

Dr. Pipes is quite correct in his warning of American policy failure. Obama has already pushed a few too many buttons in the US and the west with his egregious reinvention of America (talk about the tyrrany of the majority!) and his callous disregard for the Constitution. He ought to respect what everyone knows - that the vast majority of Americans side with Israel. Clearly his ignoring of that fact is bound to backfire on his America. But if he thinks that he now can dictate domestic policy - indeed national suicide - to the Spartan-like and stubborn Israelis he will have totally misread the Jewish nation.

An unintended result of this would be a great boon to Israel. Forced to rely on themselves Israel could mature, and finally give the middle finger to America and plot its own destiny. America and the rest of the world doesn't realize yet that we need Israel more than we do all the oil and all the Muslims in all the Arab countries put together.
