The Lack of Trust

Poll: Israelis Want to Reduce Dependence on US

Most Israelis view America as a diminishing ally for two reasons:

  1. The Obama Administration is viewed as overtly hostile toward the Jewish state, a perception only enhanced by Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent remarks that Israeli concerns over Iran’s nuclear deal were secondary to America’s agenda; and
  2. Washington’s failure to correctly gauge the “Arab Spring,” punish the Assad regime for using chemical weapons against Syrians, and leverage economic sanctions to bring an actual end to Iran’s nuclear program make America look weak in the Middle East.

Over the past year, Israel has been seen cozying up to Russia, which has been all too happy to fill the void left by America, not only in Israel, but around the region.

To be perfectly honest, I don’t trust the government of the U.S. either, so I can’t say as I blame the Israelis, however, turning to a country that was famous for it’s progroms is a little disturbing.

I would hope that the Israelis know that just because that jackwagon in D.C. and his minions appear extremely anti-Israel, the majority of U.S. citizens are VERY PRO-Israel!
