The Tour of a Madman

After the fiasco and embarrassment of his London “tour”, Romney's next stop was Israel. While in Jerusalem he gave a Press Conference where he offered to back up the State of Israel in ANY way necessary against Iran, if he was to become president of the United States. In other words, he is serving our youth on a silver platter to engage in yet another war, one perhaps more dangerous than any we’ve been involved before and with catastrophic consequences not only for our young men and women, but for the people of Israel, the people of Palestine, Iran and the world: a nuclear war.

That Romney is so irresponsible as to make these type of assertions, doesn't surprise anyone.  That the Jewish people in America can see through him and this speech will not make them change their minds, it is also known.  But we all know that Romney is willing to sell his soul to the devil if by doing so he would get a chance to be in charge of the most powerful country on earth.  Romney has no limits to his ambition, and if "a little nuclear war in the Middle East" will get him elected... then so be it!

However, in a town hall meeting in Ottumwa, Iowa during his presidential campaign in 2007 Romney was very “appreciative” of Hezbollah and their democratic ways, so much so that he though that Hezbollah was an example of diplomacy and couldn’t praise them enough.

It is sad that Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu believes all that Romney is promising. Promises he is making to get the Jewish vote in America. It is sad the PM Netanyahu publicly said: “Mitt, I couldn’t agree with you more and I think it’s important to do everything in our power to prevent the Ayatollahs from possessing that capability. We have to be honest and say that all of those sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian program by one iota. And that is why I think that we need a strong and credible military threat coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation. We’re going to discuss all these issues and the turbulent region that the Middle East has now become in our talks. I want you to know that in this great convulsion, there is one stable democratic ally of the United States here in the Middle East and that is Israel; and that is why I think its strengthening the relationship between America and Israel is in the interest of peace and benefits both our countries and I believe your visit it’s an expression of that desire on both of our people. So, I welcome you here on behalf of the State of Israel, the champion of democracy in the Middle East as a representative of the United States the greatest champion of freedom in the world. Welcome to Jerusalem. “

We all know the relationship between PM Netanyahu and President Obama has not been the best, but for Netanyahu to be discussing in private with none other than Romney about Israel’s state matters is not only inconceivable but quite honestly, irresponsible. After Romney announced to the world that he met with MI6 (which is supposed to be top secret) how can any head of state confide anything to this idiot is beyond me!

While in Israel Romney is using the Israel’s conflict with Iran as a ploy to get what he wants, the American Jewish votes. By offering our full support if Israel is to go to war with Iran he is hoping that the State of Israel will support him, if not financially with their votes. PM Netanyahu and obviously Romney (who really doesn’t care what happens) have ignored warnings from two former Mossad Directors, Meir Dagan and Efraim Halevy.

Efraim Halevy goes as far as suggesting that the constant mention of the Iran nuclear threat is a fear tactic from those in power to arouse the people, both domestically and internationally.

These two experienced men are basically warning the world of the consequences of provoking Iran and yet, that is precisely what Romney and PM Netanyahu are doing. If Iran is at the early stages and years away from acquiring nuclear weapons… do we truly believe that with these threats they will stop or speed up the process to “defend” themselves? I think we all know the answer to that question.
