Nuclear Holocaust in the Middle East?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Is it just me – or does Gaddafi, of Libya, strike anyone else as a living, breathing, cartoon character?
The guy is LOONIE! Or, perhaps, he just WANTS us to THINK he is a NUT! Well, he convinced me rather a long time ago.
When Ronald Reagan sent him a message, via a bomb dropped in the front yard of his tent, Gaddafi suddenly quieted down, at least for a while.
Now, however, he seems intent on rattling cages in the Middle East, Europe, and at the Obama White House.
Do you honestly think that if Reagan, or George Bush, were still in the White House Gaddafi would be shooting off his mouth and egging on the Palestinians to revolt against Israel? Not hardly!
Dear readers, it is called R E S P E C T! It is that thing Mr. Obama is not accorded by the “Middle Eastern Madmen.” They don’t respect him -- and they do not fear him.
Just look at Gaddafi’s ill-advised suggestion to the so-called “Palestinians.”
He reportedly said: “"We need to create a problem for the world.” (SOURCE) Gaddafi was suggesting that “Palestinian refugees should capitalize on the wave of popular revolts in the Middle East by massing peacefully on the borders of Israel until it gives in to their demands, …” (SOURCE)
In an article by Reuters, Gaddafi is quoted as having said: "All Arab states which have relations with Israel are cowardly regimes." (SOURCE) He went on to issue a call to Muslim countries to join forces against Western powers.
Now, ordinarily, this would not trouble me a great deal. But, I must tell you, with Obama in the White House, I am convinced the Middle Eastern Madmen feel they have not just an extremely weak, indecisive, leader of the west but, I am also convinced they see Obama as a friend and an ally.
All the while, Israel, the only county in the Middle East the US can actually consider a friend, is being hung out to dry by the Obama Administration. Obama’s conduct towards Israel is shameful.
At the swearing-in ceremony for Israel’s new army chief Major General Benny Gantz, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister said: "An earthquake is shaking the whole Arab world and a large part of the Muslim world and we don't yet know how these things will turn out.” Netanyahu went on to say: "We are ready for all eventualities because we know that the foundation of our existence, and our capacity to convince our neighbors to live in peace with us, is based on the Israeli army," (SOURCE)
Over the past weekend, Egypt’s Defense Minister, Hussein Tantawi, acting as the head of the Egyptian government, spoke with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Tantawi reportedly told Barak that Egypt remained committed to their bilateral peace agreement. Israeli officials reported this. They said it was the first high-level contact between Israel's government and Egypt's new rulers. (SOURCE)
If true, that would take SOME pressure off Israel’s southern border.
Look. Everyone in Israel understands that once the bloodlust of their Muslim enemies is whipped up sufficiently, Israel is going to be attacked. They might not know when, exactly, the attack is coming, but they KNOW it IS coming.
The three AM phone call to the White House has come – and nobody answered!
The Obama Regime is so far behind the curve on this entire Middle Eastern conflagration that, well, honestly, as an American, I am embarrassed. Obama’s ineptitude in managing foreign affairs is on a par with his ability to manage domestic affairs – and we all know he has failed, utterly, on the home front.
And so, our only friend in the region, Israel, is on her own. The US no longer has Israel’s back. She is exposed to those who have vowed to wipe Israel from the map.
How serious is this? Most Americans cannot even imagine the magnitude of what may happen if the Islamic thug nations gang up on Israel and Israel cannot count on the US for support. Let me spell it out for you: ATOMIC WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST!
Israel will have no choice but to loose her “Atomic Arsenal.” No choice ... unless … you consider complete annihilation of Israel some sort of choice.
Make no mistake. Israel will be fighting for her life, for her continued existence as a country. She WILL do whatever it takes to survive. There can be NO Question, whatsoever, that she will use her ultimate weapons to destroy the capital cities of her enemies and, most likely, the holy places of Islam will be caught up in the nuclear holocaust, as well.
I don’t think the Obama White House understands the gravity of the situation in the Middle East. The old hands at the CIA, the NSA, and the other intelligence agencies do, I believe. But their bosses, Obama’s handpicked political hacks from the left, have the screws on tight.
The Middle Eastern powder keg, we have so often warned about in the past, now has a lighted fuse. If that fuse is not snuffed, and snuffed soon, it is going to blow.
It has become abundantly clear that Obama is simply not up to the task of dealing with anything more serious than a teleprompter with a blown fuse. As I said above, I am embarrassed that my fellow Americans could have been so blinded by political correctness that we insisted on electing such an awesomely unqualified person to lead our country.
Obama is leading America to economic disaster, while allowing Israel, our friend, to face annihilation … alone.
