Even if as we speak American aircraft are preparing to attack the nuclear facilities in Iran, and even if as we speak American Tomahawk missiles are searching for the chemical weapon storage facilities in Syria, the truth should not be concealed: In this war, we are (almost) on our own.
America will only go to war for its own interests. In the current atmosphere in the United States, as it is withdrawing from its current wars, Washington will not go to war for Jerusalem.

They are not alone. Christians are praying for them. God is with them. They are never alone.
In 2008, a new pharoah arose over “Egypt” that did not know Joseph....
Heck, if I were him I'd say they were spraying Sarrin like it was Brawndo!
The media still tell us that Obama is the most pro-Israel, pro-Jewish American leader in history, quoting pro-Obama sources within the Democrat Party establishment to prove their point. Our Dear Leader is not even more pro-Israel than Jimmy Carter!
No President Has Ever Been as Pro-Israel as Obama ...
- Joey Biden
In addition to having a 100% pro-Israel voting record at the UN - a first for an American president - the Obama Administration has stood up for Israel . . .
- Marc R. Stanley
Obama simply does everything Israel asks for . . .

Good, as it should be.
All fine and well until you realize you need allies.
Joel Rosenburgs take:
Tzachi Hanegbi — a close, trusted, long-time personal friend and confidante of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — made remarks on Tuesday at a security conference in Tel Aviv that did not make news in the U.S. But they should have.
Hanegbi explained that the time for sanctions and diplomacy and covert options to neutralize the Iranian nuclear threat is over, and the time for Israel to use it’s military option has come.
Its now or never, said Hanegbi, “and the option of never does not exist.
Hanegbi formerly served as the Minister of Intelligence and as Justice Minister in previous governments. He is currently a Member of Knesset (Likud).
“Israel has to act according to its own imperatives,” he said.
Given how close Hanegbi and Netanyahu are — and given how sensitive the current moment is — it is difficult to believe Hanegbi spoke without knowing the Prime Minister’s mind, and without having his blessing to make such ominous remarks.
Indicators that an Israeli first strike may be increasingly close at hand:
At the same conference,
Israeli Major Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, said..... for all intents and purposes, Iran has crossed Israels red line in the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from deciding about a bomb.
Netanyahu and his inner circle are watching how Iran has been accelerating its building of uranium centrifuges, expanding its nuclear facilities, and possibly building secret new facilities.
President Obama is doing Nothing after the Assad regime in Syria crossed the Obama “red line” by using chemical weapons against the rebels, killing and wounding many. Are they concluding the White House is serious about dealing with Iran if and when Tehran crosses the “red line”? Hardly.
Netanyahu and his inner circle are watching how President Obama is doing nothing to stop North Korea from building — and testing — nuclear warheads and the ballistic missiles to deliver them. Are they concluding the White House is serious about preventing nuclear proliferation? Again, hardly.
Netanyahu are his inner circle are watching how President Obama has pulled U.S. military assets out of the Persian Gulf region, claiming budget cutbacks.
All this suggests the Netanyahu team believes it is all alone to deal with the Iran problem.
Was a good read too..thanks...excerts:
The announcement that the US has agreed to sell Israel advanced weapons specifically geared towards attacking Iran should also be seen in this light.
Israel reportedly spent a year negotiating this deal. But immediately after its details were published, the US started backing away from its supposed commitment to supply them.
The US will NOT provide Israel with bunker-buster bombs.
It will not provide Israel with the bombers necessary to use the bombs Israel isn’t getting.
And anyway, by the time Israel gets the items the US is selling - like mid-air refuelers - it will be too late.
