The Point is: Israel's Destiny is Already Set -Neither Obama nor Romney Will Get It Right...

Reader comment on item: Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: The Point Is?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Aug 1, 2012 at 19:30

Just as the Hebrew Holy Scriptures indicate, Israel is caught between the rock and the hard place, to use the Americanized version of that colloquialism. If candidate Obama remains head of the American state, Israel will be lulled into the socialistic progressive mentality that keeps social activists content, for a while. But be wary of promises being made, but not being handled with truth.

If candidate Romney is elected, it is true that Israel will find itself maybe slightly better off from a defensive perspective; but not for long. Gov. Romney's perspective of the Russian CIS and its intentions in the Middle East do not bode well for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the Russian disrespect and distrust of the American political motivation, centered on the Russians wanting to protect their own political advances since the collapse of the communist regime. The old ghosts are still there.

Either way, Israel is likely to end up on their own defensive and the world will be more than glad to see the advantages of that. Too bad for the globalists it will be short lived – Israel will still come out on top.
