Now consider today. Well, it’s the same thing. It is obvious that despite the thinnest veneer, it is pretty much the same thing as 1929, 1941, 1948, 1979, 2000-2004, etc. That is a terrible and sobering situation, but it is true. Maybe not inevitable, but it is based on leadership. Remember Iran (34 years) and Turkey (about 12 years) are relatively new additions to existential conflict with Israel.

When asked by a recent poll if Israeli-PA negotiations would ever lead to peace, 25 percent of Jewish Israelis said yes, while 73 percent of them said no. Remember, many of those Jews who were against still–or used to–vote for the left. It is angering that Israel and PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s “hard line” are being blamed for this, but it should be obvious that the conflict will not end.

In the meantime, Iran is getting nuclear weapons while Israel is getting nothing but insults from Kerry as the–wait for it–“bad” guy after 65 years. He is unintentionally encouraging murders (two of four Israeli soldiers killed in two weeks were not killed in the territories–one was killed while visiting what he thought was an Arab “friend” and another while sleeping on a bus bench).

Or as former U.S. Secretary of State Shultz explains what is really happening: Iranians will “cut your throat.” He is really encouraging this Iranian throat-cutting.

But no doubt Kerry knows better. On Palestinian television (which incidentally is under protest for censorship by Palestinian journalists who have at times been arrested), he stated,

Failure of the talks will increase Israel’s isolation in the world. The alternative to getting back to the talks is a potential of chaos. I mean, does Israel want a third intifada? I believe that if we do not find a way to find peace, there will be an increasing isolation of Israel.

Two intifadas? Is he going to do something about this if there is a third intifada? Is Kerry going to protect Israel? Because there will be cross-border attacks, and they will only be covered in one-paragraph shorts, while any photos will be of Palestinian terrorists’ grieving families.

So what is Iran doing in the meanwhile? Here are some public statements by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Dr Rubin, can you please explain why Iran " can win " with conventionnal weapons ? hezbollah is no match for a full-scale confrontation with IDF.
And I do not see the current israeli govt.weak or stupid enough to evacuate areas B+C in Judea-Samaria and give them to hamas.
Which brings to my 2nd demand : Why do you see Iran nuclear arsenal as purely defensive ?
On the israeli perspective There is a linkage, a rational escalation, between a tactical defeat of hezbollah at the hand of IDF - followed - by a nuclear attack from Iran on Israel .If hezbollah is crushed by IDF then Iran can send dozens of missiles including many dummies to wear out the israeli anti-missile defense, then one iranian nuke can go through.
On the saudi arabia perspective , there are no questions about the OFFENSIVE nature of Iran nuclear weapon.That is the logic behind the saudi position; As soon as Iran reaches a nuke Saudi will get one .
Saudi arabia nor Egypt never looked for nukes despite 4 wars against a nuclear-able Israel.Because they clearly perceived the israeli nukes are purely defensive.Right now Saudi arabia perceives the iranian nukes as offensive weapons. I think it is exactly the same OFFENSIVE threat wich is pointed at Israel.

I've read articles which suggest America is withdrawing from the Middle East -- abandoning the region. But is this the case? Others say that Obama, far from withdrawing from the area, is actually re-aligning existing powers. Thus he is promoting the rise of Turkey, Iran, Syria, while abandoning Israel. This reminds me of a book Fareed Zacharia promoted back in 2010. It was "Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America's future" by Kinzer. Is Obama (a fan of Zacharia) doing what Kinzer advised? Dump Israel, support Iran?

International readers are not impressed with the unprofessional air Kerry wafts on the Middle/Near East - Israel issues. He treats the personalities involved on issues as school boys whom he rather hush the aggrieved to appease the bully. He is known as traitor in Vietnam, and look what he's doing now? He is elevating his traitorous endeavors. Ohhh, how sick ...
