Last fall I published a short “Broadside” entitled Obama’s Betrayal of Israel, in which I made a point that seems as important today as it did then:
As he pushes Israel away from the American embrace, Obama has undertaken to make peace with Iran, whose genocidal hatred of America and Israel and bloody war against both requires a very different policy. Sensible Middle East experts understand that there cannot be peace between Israel and the Arabs as long as Iran exercises a decisive influence over the key terrorist organizations. But Obama has willfully ignored this connection in designing his Mideast plans.
You can’t even begin to address the Arab-Israeli thing until and unless you’ve defeated Iran.
