CANDIDLY SPEAKING: The US and Europe are desperate for a face-saving situation to avoid confrontation with the Iranians.

One might have hoped that Obama’s calamitous mishandling of recent Middle East crises, climaxing with his disastrous response to the Syrian use of chemical weapons, would have taught him a few lessons on regional politics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regrettably his address to the United Nations General Assembly last week proved otherwise. By reverting to his original Cairo speech – insisting that resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian peace “would have a profound and positive impact on the entire Middle East and North Africa” – Obama has caused many Israelis to question not merely his competence, but also his real intentions toward Israel.

 

The notion that the stability of the entire Middle East region hinges on the resolution of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict is utterly absurd. Our conflict has no bearing on the complex and far more problematic conflicts and pressure points surrounding us: the struggle between Sunnis and Shi’ites; the resurgence of al-Qaida; the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood; the persecution and murder of Christians throughout the Muslim world; the threat of a nuclear Iran; the chaos in Libya and Yemen; the upheavals in Egypt; the global Islamic terror attacks extending from New York to Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Mali, and most recently Kenya; and above all, the carnage in Syria. To place responsibility for regional stability on Israel in the midst of this chaos is a terrible misreading of reality.

 

To compound matters, Obama linked the Iranian nuclear threat and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, treating them with equal importance – a clear signal that the US expects Israel to make major concessions to the Palestinians in return for “undertakings” to prevent the Iranians from obtaining a nuclear bomb.

 

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu must have been bitterly disappointed. He has bent over backward in efforts to please…………………………………..

 

EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
