Caroline Glick blogged it appears that as his critics warned, Obama's moves toward the center on issues relating to the Middle East were little more than campaign tactics to obscure his true policy preferences.
I am afraid many of his moves to the center were the same thing.Two days after his election, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius gave a sense of the direction in which Obama will likely take US foreign policy.... Obama, he claimed, will want to push hard to force Israel to come to an agreement with the Palestinians as soon as he comes into office.
Like forcing them back to the indefensible pre-67 borders.... WHAT IS most alarming about Obama's emerging foreign policy toward Iran and its proxies on the one hand and Israel on the other is that it will cause actual harm to the Jewish state.
I wonder what the 77% of Jews that supported bama will have to say about that.... As for direct talks with Iran itself, the question immediately arises, what could Obama offer Teheran in exchange for an end to its nuclear program that Bush hasn't already offered? What it can offer is Israel.
And it appears he is perfectly willing to throw Israel under the bus. Despite what Genesis 12:3 says.... The Obama team's pre-inaugural signals indicate strongly that Israel's next government will need to strike Iran's nuclear installations before two rapidly approaching deadlines.
Thankfully they took out Saddam's reactor, and now it looks like they will have to deal with Iran's, since they can't count on us to help them.The strike will have to occur before the mullahs enrich sufficient quantities of highly enriched uranium to produce nuclear bombs. And Israel will need to neutralize Iran's nuclear program before the Obama administration begins implementing America's new foreign policy.
