ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I have received many emails from friends and organizations asking me to “stand with Israel.” And yet I have heard little from Israelis or even American Jews about the way President Obama has put Israel in jeopardy.

Thanks to Mr. Obama, Israel has been transformed from being in the middle of a dangerous but manageable situation to being surrounded by hostile Islamists. Mr. Obama essentially has sealed Israel’s fate. Though I am an American who recognizes the importance of the survival of the state of Israel, I’m even more concerned about the economic survival of America. Mr. Obama has done everything in his power to sabotage our energy resources and spend money we don’t have. About 40 percent of our budget is financed and some of that is aid given to Israel. Unless Israel and prominent American Jews help make Mr. Obama a one-term president, why should I agonize over Israel’s fate?

If the president is re-elected and carries out his promise of bending over backward for the Russians, he will then make even more deals that weaken both Israel and America. America will be so debt-ridden that we won’t be able to help Israel at all. Now is the time is for American Jews to fish or cut bait. If Mr. Obama gets four more years, America and Israel both will be toast.
