Fiddling on the Roof, While Iran Goes Nuclear

With regards to Iran, the United States is reverting to its pre-World War II isolationist mode.

It has been clear to me for a long time that the United States is just posturing and not a real world power.  It has no do or die principles and its recent military successes were a long time ago or not worth bragging about.

Most worrisome is the fact that instead of eliminating the Iranian nuclear industry American officials at best  just mumble about letting Israel, one of the smallest countries in the world, “take care of it” if Israel really feels in danger.  Duh!  Iran is anti-American even more than anti-Israel.  For Americans to rationalize that and lie to themselves that Iran would only use weapons against Israel is totally unrealistic and very dangerous.

In Israel Hayom, David Weinberg wrote of how the Americans are hoping to ignore the dangers of Iran to world peace.

Now, Pickering is back at the head of a panel of former senior U.S. officials and outside experts called “The Iran Project,” urging U.S. President Barack Obama to drop sanctions and covert action against Iran, and instead negotiate more intensively with Tehran.
“I fundamentally believe that the balance between sanctions and diplomacy has been misaligned,” says Pickering. He and his colleagues (who at the time included Chuck Hagel, now defense secretary) write that the sanctions policy seems to be backfiring and has “contributed to an increase in repression and corruption within Iran.” They worry that sanctions “may be sowing the seeds of long-term alienation between the Iranian people and the United States.”
In an interview with The New York Times, Pickering also contends that Obama should review the covert program against Iran — which reportedly has included computer sabotage of its nuclear facilities — to “stop anything that is peripheral, that is not buying us much time” in slowing Iran’s progress.

The United States is reverting to its pre-World War Two isolationist mode.  The United States had hoped that it wouldn’t be “dragged into” war with Hitler.  It tried being accommodating, and there were many prominent Americans who didn’t find Hitler problematic.  They certainly didn’t mind his anti-Semitism.

At the Jerusalem Post’s NY Conference, Former Mossad Chief Meir Dagan stated that:

To threaten an immediate attack on Iran is not beneficial to Israel… It transferred the Iranian issue from a worldwide issue to an Israeli issue. I would have been happier had [U.S. President Barack] Obama made his announcement that he would not let Iran get nuclear weapons in Riyadh and not in Jerusalem.

I must admit that I don’t agree with much else that Dagan stated.  He’s total unrealistic when it comes to the chance of “peace” with Arab terrorists.

When you look at the big picture, it’s clear that the Arab terrorism that targets Israelis is also related to the Arab and Islamic terrorism that can be found even in the United States, such as the Boston Marathon bombing.

It’s a very dangerous mistake that Israel is accepting foreign advice/instructions/ideology to do everything it can to make peace with the Arab Terrorists.  It is totally impossible to make peace with terrorists.  Consider it against their religion!

The bottom line is that the world is in big trouble!

  1. By Todd Starnes.

    The Jewish Federal of Nashville and a group of outraged parents are calling for a school district to pull a high school textbook they believe promotes bias against Israel.

    The book, “The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography,” is used in Advanced Placement classes in Williamson County, south of Nashville.

    A section titled, “Terrorism by Individuals and Organizations,” asks students to ponder the following question:

    “If a Palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen Israeli teenagers in a Jerusalem restaurant, is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against Israeli government policies and army actions?” RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  2. The word "Taqiyya" literally means: "Concealing, precaution, guarding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

    Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur'an and Sunna, including deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. he Recently an IMAM WALKED OUT BEFORE THE SInging OF HATIKVAH at an holocaust interfaith service. I refused to attend and resigned from the organiztion. I created the holocaust service and formally served as president of the organization. The Iman promised me he would have a press conference with me declaring in America we will not listen to Morsi and others who call Jews Apes and ask for our destruction. The press conference was never held. Jews wake up and stop being such liberals. Parts of Europe are becoming Judenrein RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  3. This U.S. Administration does not understand foreign affair. It just making things closer to War World III. Allowing Iran to get the bomb is not going to help the Middle East. Practicing an Isolationist policy to keep the U.S. from foreign intervension is not going to help anybody. The world needs the U.S. to keep it under check. No other great power will be able to do it. China is going to provoque a clash with the U.S. in the near future, and nuclear weapons will be used. The Russians were smart enough to avoid a nuclear war, but the Chinese will cause one. The Iranians will try to use the bomb, and in the process, the whole Middle East will be involved in a catastrophic nuclear war; just because, the current U.S. Administration has not brains, no experience whatsoever in dealing with foreign affairs, and not guts. Their progressive mentality is just about walking away, and do nothing. Disarming American is not the way, and in the end, more Americans will die….. You blamed President Bush for all the bad things in the past, and now, we are going to face a real war, and in the end, Israel survival will be at stake. But it was the stupid Americans who voted for Obama; those who just looked for hand outs and free meals. I am an American, and I did not vote for this President, but I truly care about the American Military, and I hope, they have the needed equipment and support to deal with these catastrophic events….

  4. I did not vote for Obama either and I do not trust him and the people he surrounds himself with. Israel should be ready to stand on her own. God bless Israel .A great and courageous country.

  5. I am jewish, and I cannot see that Israel get involved with Iran or Syria, I think it is time that Israel and Iran get together and speack, this unfriendship will go to nowhere, loosing so much energy, the best they have to loock the future in education, health, energy, etc:, this will bring peace in Midle East.

There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack, and that is allowing those who attacked you to do it again!

Smuggling Gazans into Europe is cheaper than fighting with Gaza, and then rebuilding all the destruction.
