Rubin Reports: Obama’s ‘Secret’ Plan on Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Issue and Why (Even the Saudis Tell You) It Will Fail

Let me stress that point. Obama’s strategy makes war–including the chance of an Israeli attack some day–more, not less, probable. Incidentally, forgive me for adding that my argument that Israel was never going to attack Iran at this time has been increasingly shown to be accurate.

At any rate, Obama’s strategy will fail to do anything but possibly look good to his domestic audience.

What then is the alternative? Not war, but a comprehensive strategy designed to contain and weaken Iran that goes beyond sanctions to political action. This means undermining Iran’s allies, Hizballah in Lebanon and the Syrian regime, and giving strong support to the Arab states of the Persian Gulf so that they feel the United States is really going to protect them. These people don’t want an American president who panders to what he thinks Arabs and Muslims want but a president who is tough in protecting U.S. interests – interests that include their own survival.

    Hard problem.
    Don’t forget that Obama is a muslim even if he says not.
    Dont forget that the Gulf states are arabs and, as arabs, they are traitors. Now they say they are friends and cooperate with Euroope and Artzot Habrit, but when they will decide, they will be enemies. Teheran is saying yes yes, but the only thing they are doing is to loose time and in the meanwhile they are progressing with their nuke bomb.
    Obama knows it and this is his will. Forget plans and nonsenses. We don’t want a nuke war. So it’s necessary to act now. Israel has radar invisible planes. It’s not difficult to eliminate nuke installations before is too late.
    We know that the stupid international community will blame Israel, but that will be the same. Let them say like stupids. The Israel safety is first.
    Shalom.

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Ayatollah Hossein-Kazamani Boroujerdi, in better times (left) and in his prison cell (right).

Boroujerdi was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed.”

Senior Hamas and Fatah leaders in Gaza City on April 22. Hamas and Fatah signed a deal to establish a unity government, but since then little progress has been made.

Fatah: Hamas stole relief aid for Gaza and distributed it amongst its followers in mosques.

Can teenagers seriously be expected to behave properly when they are surrounded by so much suggestive material? Is it fair to expose them (and ourselves) to so much temptation and then tell them, “Just say no”?

Washington remains ignorant of the need to dismantle alliances with various Muslim countries.

Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority cannot even agree to move their clocks back on the same day.

Shemita is about relating to each other by temporarily eliminating gaps of wealth power & status

Last week the president announced a four-point plan. Unfortunately, there’s little buy-in from our European and Middle Eastern allies. Here’s my own four-point plan that may be more palatable to our allies.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]

Yes, God judges, but His judgment is that of a loving father who longs for his child’s quick return.

Anti-Semitism has returned to the mainstream of European society and Israel has become its focus.

If the Obama/Kerry peace deal does go through, what would the risks be?

Let me make it plain. There will be mass murder, even genocide in Syria.

A large number of pro-Obama and radical or even anti-Israel cadre are Jews.

Does anyone think the Palestinian Authority will resist daily attacks from Hamas and Fatah radicals?

Secret Service security arrangements were overruled.

The Obama Administration plan is very simple, assuming that everything goes smoothly–which of course it will not.

The less you know about Islam, the better. Ignorance is strength.
