Many Jews feared Obama’s reelection because of his stance toward Israel and Iran’s nuclear ambitions. What’s your opinion? Is Iran America’s problem? Israel’s problem?
It’s the world’s problem. It’s a more immediate problem for Israel, more longer term for America – which is why their timetables are in such conflict.
What do you envision happening?
Well, everybody hopes sanctions will work. I’m very skeptical. If they don’t, I think there’s a very high probability that Israel will act. Whether America will support the act, I don’t know.
What do you think America should do?
I think the duty of an ally is to allow an ally to defend itself.Elliot Resnick
