Wall Street Journal: Israelis are right not to trust Obama on Iran

In an editorial Friday, the Wall Street Journal says it is no wonder Israelis are upset when President Obama who is fond of saying he “has Israel’s back” tries to sell “a make-believe world” of peaceful Iranian nuclear intensions, working sanctions and successful diplomacy. This “head-in-the-sand performance” is why many Israeli decision-makers believe “they had better strike sooner than later.” The WST says a president who really had Israel’s back would publicly contradict the Dempsey warning against an Israeli strike and his comment “I don’t want to be complicit if they choose to do it.”
