Do Israelis Really Think the U.S. Will Come to Their Aid?

Many Israelis seem to think that if Iran does acquire nuclear weapons, if Israel could just offer up a more friendly face, the current U.S. Administration would, in a crisis, come to their help. They could not be more wrong.

Many Israelis seem to be counting on some deeply wished-for love from the current U.S. Administration. What they may not want to see is that their unrequited love for the U.S. runs far deeper than any disagreement with Israel’s current prime minister. Just ask Syria, ask Iraq, ask Yemen, ask Libya, ask Saudi Arabia, ask Kuwait, ask Egypt. The current U.S. Administration does not even send weapons; it sends meals-ready-to-eat. Israel and the rest of us in the region — as Iran has already encircled all the oil fields and is now taking over Iraq — have no more to look forward to than that.

    A recent poll in Israel said that 75% of enlistees and conscripts in the IDF want combat assignments. Israelis may be “tired of war,” but they will do what they must to defend themselves.

    “…ask Syria, ask Iraq…” Ask Canada, too.

    Do Israelis Really Think the U.S. Will Come to Their Aid?

    Few people on earth are as pragmatic as the Israelis, and of course they know they’re on their own or at least that Obama won’t lift a finger to help them. That’s why Bibi made his speech to Congress, who have the power to declare war.

    Buckwheat and Lurch hate Israel. Only an idiot would think America with Obama as POTUS would help Israel.

    Obama is planning on being the American president who killed more Jews than Hitler.
