Reader comment on item: Why Palestinian Delusions Persist

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Nov 13, 2017 at 10:20

9/9/2040----I wonder whether those numbers have a meaning? A while back I said it would be ironic if a US president with a middle name of Hussein would become instrumental in the demise of Israel. Barack Obama has come very close and the story is not over. By failing to intercede militarily in the Syrian rebellion and allow the Russians the opportunity to do so, Israel has been placed in a precarious situation.

Hezbollah is now a seasoned army and greatly strengthened even with Israel bombing supply routes. Iran, an ally of Russia, is building military bases in Syria, while they continue to expand their nuclear knowledge base.

Obama was betting on a regime change in Iran that would be more prone to a peaceful resolution, but Iran now has delusions of an Iranian empire.
