Saudi Arabia is afraid. It’s afraid enough to give Israel a safe corridor through their airspace. The prospect of a nuclear armed Iran has not only the Saudis, but virtually every other country in the region in a panic. Clearing the way for the Israelis, the Saudis ran several drills to ensure that their air defenses would stand down in the event the Israelis decide to go.
The question would be whether Israel wishes to waste valuable time waiting for Washington’s latest lame foray in placation policy. Israel may not want to give the go to the operation to remove Iran as a nuclear threat without the blessings of Washington, but the way Obama drags his feet, the Israelis should really consider going with or without Washington’s approval. Lead, follow, but get the hell out of my way. Maybe if Israel goes ahead they’ll drag the very timid Barack behind them. Not a likely scenario. What is apparent is that Obama will favor Islamists over his allies and countrymen. In fact it just begs the question again, just who or what is Barack Hussein Obama working for?
I heard Tom Marr of WCBM, Baltimore, refer to Obama as having to defer to his ‘inner muslim’. Sadly, I think it makes a lot of sense in view of Obama’s barely concealed dislike of Israel and Jews.
Regardless of what Mr. Obama wants Israelis to do, they must do what they have to do to ensure the survival of their nation.
We owe them that. The world owes them that.
