Misreading the Mideast

Security analyst Caroline Glick argues here that the Obama administration has completely misread the situation in the Mideast. Egypt and Jordan, far from ostracizing Israel for not dismantling its settlements in the West Bank and pursuing a separate Palestinian state, are telling the Netanyahu government that they agree with its policies.

Indeed, she presents evidence to show that throughout much of the Mideast, Arab governments are hoping that Israel will knock out Iran's nuclear weapons program before it succeeds.

Critics of the Bush administration charged former Vice President Cheney and former Defense Secretary Rumsfeld with living in the past and failing to understand the nature of today's threats. Looks like that criticism applies in spades to the Obama administration.
