Obama may actually be handed a gift in October, and depending upon what he does with that opportunity, it may provide him with a guaranteed win on November 6. The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that according to U.S. intelligence experts, Israel is gearing up for an October attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. And while Obama has done everything in his power to prevent Israel from conducting a military strike, including leaking various national security secrets pertaining to such an attack, affording Iran time to further its goals through prolonged and ineffectual diplomatic games, and withholding sophisticated weaponry that would increase the chances of a successful Israeli strike[i], Israel may not have a choice but to proceed without a nod or assistance from Washington. But why October?
Anyone who has been following Barack Obama’s record on the U.S.-Israel relationship understands that Obama is the least supportive president when it comes to this strategic and longstanding relationship than any of his predecessors, including Jimmy Carter. For anyone who questions this statement of fact (and the Democrats are doing their best to lie about its veracity), Discover The Networks has produced an extensive list of Obama’s “words, actions, and key affiliations vis à vis Israel not only during his first 32 months in the White House, but during the two decades preceding his presidency as well” which support the “perception that Obama is not seriously committed to protecting Israel’s welfare.” And the Emergency Committee for Israel has produced a short film entitled Daylight: The Story of Obama and Israel that further illustrates the reality that Obama has been anything but a friend to our strongest ally in the Mideast.
And certainly the Israelis do not need to be told that the U.S. president will not have their back when the chips are down. After all, Obama has shown their prime minister complete disrespect, blamed the problems in the Mideast — and certainly the lack of peace agreement with the Palestinians — on the building of settlements rather than Palestinian intransigence and violence, facilitated the takeover of the Egyptian government by the Muslim Brotherhood and hosted that terrorist organization in the White House, and sat almost completely idly by while Iran marches to nuclear capability as it simultaneously calls for Israel’s annihilation.
