President Obama: I’m sure that in the next few hours, as you visit Israel, you will say many nice things, that you will receive a warm welcome, and that everyone you meet will speak of you as a wonderful president and a great friend. That’s fine.
But here’s what you need to know, what’s of the greatest importance that nobody is going to say to your face….
One Middle Eastern saying that has become widely known in the West is that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. In the Obama era, this has been transmuted into: The enemy of my friend is my friend. No, wait! U.S. policy has gone even further than that to: The enemy of myself is my friend!
Here’s a perfect example for understanding that point.
Today you give them guns; tomorrow they use those weapons to murder the U.S. ambassador when he tries to get them back.
