Ilana Freedman on the Gatestone Institute’s “After Geneva, ‘The Islamic Bomb’“
If nothing else is clear following the so-called ‘deal’ that the US has rushed to craft with Iran, one thing stands out clearly in the debris of America’s appeasement: Israel is in a more dangerous position now than at any time in recent history. Despite articulate but meaningless assurances from senior figures in Washington, including Secretary of State John Kerry and the President himself, Israel has never stood more alone in the face of such an implacable enemy – Iran and its jihadi surrogates – who have sworn to wipe Israel off the map, and are developing – with our assistance – the weapons to do it.
What are we thinking as we throw Israel to the wolves of Islamist madness? How dare we spit in the face of our ally, and reach out to our enemy at Israel’s great and existential expense?
Iran has declared victory even before the documents are drawn and signed. They grin like the Cheshire cat, having given up nothing in their quest for a seat at the nuclear weapons table, while we have given up our power to stop them, and what little remains of our leadership in the world. We have been out-negotiated and weakened yet again by those whose greatest wish is to destroy us and impose their tyranny on us.
