US fumes over Israeli home building while Iran builds nuke
Latest from the Jerusalem Post :
WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sharply admonished Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over the Interior Ministry's approval of new building in East Jerusalem in a phone conversation Friday.
The Obama administration has completely lost it. They are engaged in rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Here we are, months away from Iran acquiring nuclear weapons and potentially starting a nuclear war and what the administration is complaining about is Israel building apartment blocks in Jerusalem which would supposedly jeopardize the peace process.
What peace process?
Oslo I, Oslo II, Taba, Wye, Tenet, Mitchell, Zinni, Sharm El-Sheikh, Roadmap, Annapolis all failed for one and the same reason and it has nothing to do with building in Jerusalem and everything to do with the ideology of jihad. Only yesterday the Palestinians have dedicated a public square to the memory of a woman who in 1978 helped carry out the deadliest terror attack in Israel's history.
Instead of apartments in Jerusalem what Americans should be concentrating on is what Bernard Lewis, the West's foremost scholar on Islam, said about the Iranian regime: "In this context, mutual assured destruction, the deterrent that worked so well during the Cold War, would have no meaning. At the end of time, there will be general destruction anyway. What will matter will be the final destination of the dead--hell for the infidels, and heaven for the believers. For people with this mindset, MAD [mutual assured destruction] is not a constraint; it is an inducement."
It is time to explain to the American people that the Obama administration with its appeasement policy towards a nuclear armed fanatical regime is endangering the lives of 7 million Israelis. For heaven's sake Americans, get your priorities straight!
