Feiglin: Obama to pay for Syria complications with Israeli concessions
Knesset member Moshe Feiglin (Likud) worries that any complications from an Obama-initiated attack on Syria will be paid for with Israeli concessions
In my evaluation, America's anticipated strike in Syria is part of a long-term US plan. If it wanted, America could have continued to blur the Syrian use of chemical weapons. Massacres happen all the time throughout the world; some are intentionally ignored while others are amplified. The President of the United States is eager to bolster his image in the aftermath of his resounding policy failures. To stabilize his relations with the Arab world and Russia after expected complications set in, Obama intends to pay in Israeli coinage. Israel must urgently formulate a strategy - and not suffice itself with mere tactical positioning. In the Middle East, either you sit down to the dinner - or you are the main course.
Does anyone else wonder whether he means concessions to the 'Palestinians' or concessions to Syria? I suspect both....
