in response to reader comment: Prescience

The exchange between authors Stein and Brandstetter, MD, carry certain implications (though not exclusive to their own views) that America has been blindsided so many times in trying to defend against the Islamists' threats that a real consequence of the supposed engagement of jihadist forces is actually being missed. As is implied, the threat is no longer from abroad, but within even the facades of government. And do not think this is being missed from outside the veiled enclaves of America's bureaucratic labyrinth.

From the time of the Cairo 2009 invitation to Islamists' sensibilities, the venue of America's relations to the Middle East took a turn for the worst, as it relates to America once being the bastion of freedom. Even as America once had joint aspirations of democratic liberty with the only major alliance in the Middle East that America once called friend, Israel, that is in extreme jeopardy with the American Administrative Chief Executive's fawning over the newly reformed 'Palestinian Association' of Hamas and Fatah. Israeli PM Netanyahu has nothing good to observe about that.

This will prove to be the undoing of many who think that something good will come out of paying any tribute to forming the new 'Palestinian Alliance' against the security of Israel's sovereignty. With all other elements of America's foreign policies falling short of any ambition to keep America strong, it is only a matter of time when the true prescience of the Middle East's future is exposed as being the truth all along; that you cannot mess with Israel and, as it is written, expect not to pay dearly for it.

Jihad in America(?); not necessary with a dhimmitude attitude like so many in the American government.
