Israel: Unleashed or Under Foot?

With the perception of a weak President-elect, and Iran's continuing threat to peace in the Middle East with its development of nuclear weapons, look for Israel to assume a more hawkish position with regards to her enemies and her friends. Obama is not a strong supporter of Israel and dare I say he really isn't a supporter of the Jewish state at all. If Israel senses that they are going it alone, they will more likely take an aggressive posture. For the past several years, Israel has been somewhat restrained by policy in Washington and a liberal named Olmert as Caretaker Prime Minister of Israel and in all honesty, with regards to the Iran question, Israel has been suspiciously silent as well. With elections coming up in February, and depending on who gets elected, look for this acquiescence to end. 

Thank you for reading this blog.
