Barack Obama spent eight years enabling Iran through a nuclear deal which guarantees them a nuclear device within 10-15 years, and by showering them with money, several million in hard cash — money laundering, anyone? For this America has earned the well-deserved contempt of not just Iran, but Israel and the Sunni states.
Of course, Israel called Obama out for his stupid if not treacherous Iranian deal right from the start.
No lover of Jews or Israel, Obama, a man who spent his entire life in the cheerful company of Jew-haters and leftist fellow travelers, will, to his dying day, maintain that the capitulation to Iran retroactively justifies his dopey Nobel Peace Prize.
Which just goes to show that that prize should be relabeled The Neville Chamberlain Prize for Appeasement.
In Riyadh, President Trump began to turn the disastrous Obama years a full 180 degrees.
He named Iran as the greatest threat to the region, and called for that terrorist state to be isolated.
In addition, President Trump let loose one sentence which has never been uttered anywhere in the Arab Muslim world:
That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews and the slaughter of Christians.
This is beyond refreshing. This is actually an honest expression of the multiple pathologies that rule and ruin the Muslim world, Sunni and Shia.
Of course, speeches do not make policy, and it remains to be seen how the Trump administration will proceed in the Middle East.
I’m sorry that Trump remains boyishly optimistic about bringing peace to the Israelis and the IslamoNazi leadership of the so-called Palestinians. This effort is doomed by their openly and proudly genocidal intentions.
But I am heartened that President’s Trump’s reception in Israel was fulsome and genuine. After eight years of the openly anti-Israel Obama, Israel is anxious for an America President who is ready to resume America’s special relationship with the Jewish state.
It’s also a sign of the times that President Trump is visiting the Kotel, the Western Wall. Presidential candidates like the poisonously cynical Obama make the pilgrimage in order to secure the secular Jewish Democrat vote. But Donald Trump is the first POTUS to visit the Kotel. This sends a powerful message of support, especially to Torah Zionists and our Christian Zionist friends.
President Trump’s visit to the Kotel further puts the so-called Palestinians (the KGB dreamed up the faux Palestinian identity) on notice that their industry of historical lies denying Judaism’s birthright to Eretz Yisroel will find no traction in the Trump administration.
