The report that President Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli jets attacking Iran may or may not be true.
But the fact is, the president has surrounded himself with people who have no love for the Jewish state. And the idea of the president attacking an ally is a plausible scenario.
One of his closest advisors, Samantha Power, actually suggested back in 2002 that the U.S. invade Israel to impose a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
I had forgotten how truly radical Samantha Powers is. Her casual mentions of “human rights abuses” and “genocide” mark her as an anti-Israel zealot.
