LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obama’s poor Middle East policy
If there were ever an administration that could mess up foreign policy, it is the current one. Under President Obama, it has been a disaster as we have continued to try to negotiate with the most autocratic, theocratic and dictatorial regimes while ignoring or deprecating our democratic allies (“Recognizing Palestine,” Comment & Analysis, Tuesday).
We have made a difficult situation impossible by first trumpeting the importance of keeping Israel from naturally developing the cities and towns outside of the temporary pre-1967 armistice lines and then arming the Palestinian Authority, supporting the return to the long-extinct pre-1967 lines and feeding billions of dollars to an organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. Our role in Syria has not been much better, as we have encouraged Bashar Assad to retain power in that nation.
It is time that we exercise what little economic clout we have left by no longer funding the Palestinian Authority and withdrawing military cooperation with its security forces. In Syria, it’s time for sanctions that will bite. Unfortunately, it may be too late to clean up the mess that we have created.
