When he first got word of Israel’s sneak attack on the Iraqi atomic reactor in 1981, U.S. President Ronald Reagan privately shrugged it off, telling his national security adviser: “Boys will be boys”

Would Barack Obama be so sanguine if today’s Israelis made good on years of threats and bombed Iran’s nuclear facilities, yanking the United States into an unprecedented Middle East eruption that could dash his goal of easing regional tensions through revived and redoubled U.S. outreach?

For that matter, would Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu readily take on Iran alone, given his country’s limited firepower and the risk of stirring up a backlash against the Jewish state among war-weary, budget-strapped Americans?

  1. Israel is a danger to almost everyone including themselves. Will the zionist influenced Obama administration control Israel’s aggression or encourage it?

  2. As a d’jew: Were I an Isroaeli? I would leave, never go beck.

    You who stay in that godforesaken desert, and agree to fight the indigenous people, you will fail, and it will be, as it has forever been, a mess.

    Exodus. Movement of Ja peoople.. for real.

    Come home america. They don’t have so much trouble with djews here any more, and trees and plants actually grow because we have rain in some parts (though Semites seem to love desrts, and god knows we have lots of those!)

    C’mon folks, we have better mounts to build temples on!

    You just have to re-write the scriptures to make it originate in the new world… simple!
