Alan Hart wonders whether President Barack Obama
“is aware that Israel’s existence has never been in danger
and chooses to ignore the truth of history for self-serving political reasons,
or whether he is ignorant”.
Unless it provokes a confrontation – I am sure it will at some point –
there is no prospect of Arab attacks on the nuclear-armed military superpower of the region.
Yes, missiles might be fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip prison camp,
but they do not and will not constitute a major or serious threat to Israel’s security.
And they would not be fired if Israel’s leaders were interested in peace
[ … which they’re not ]
on terms which would provide the Palestinians with an acceptable amount of justice.
