Is there activity going on that points to the possibility that the White House is attacking Israel? For example, in the past we’ve heard words from President Obama that appear to present a favorable stance toward Islam.
The Jerusalem Post notes that the Obama administration has agreed to give Iran 80% of what they want in the ongoing nuclear arms negotiations and Israel is concerned that the administration could be ready soon to strike a deal with Iran.
News sources are indicating that the State Department appears angry that Speaker of the House John Boehner invited Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress. It’s also alleged that the State Department is funding a political effort to influence the March 17th elections in Israel in order to remove Netanyahu from office.
Is all of this due to the idea that international respect for the president has created the perfect setting for the establishment of a new world order? This is an idea that was mentioned in the past by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
Whatever the underlying causes are for President Obama’s attitude toward Israel, numerous listeners called to provide some possible answers during this vital edition of Crosstalk.
