"I don't think there's a sense that I've been successful."-- President Obama, in an interview with Colorado 9NEWS, when asked if he's been effective at changing Washington, D.C.
Let's just hope and pray that Obama isn't successful in his quest to establish a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic State!
And about Kissenger...
There's nothing more dangerous than a self-hating Jew. Dry Bones' Yaakov has been in Israel about the same time as me, and anyone who was here during the 1973 Yom Kippur War must have noticed how Henery Kissenger did nothing for Israel. Yes, that's right. He and Nixon pushed Israel to the edge, hoping that Israel, fearful of defeat would ask the United States to step in. With G-d's help we defeated the Arabs.
A number of years later, friend told me that she had heard from someone who had been in the United States Military stationed in Europe that summer. Unexpectedly, they were put on alert, supplied with desert gear and waited. They waited until Israel defeated the Arabs. In retrospect it seems pretty obvious that the United States knew (or seriously suspected) that Syria and Egypt would be attacking Israel.
And according to Carl, Richard Holbrooke was relatively good to Israel. Baruch Dayan Ha'emet.
