Yaffe: Israel betrayed by world powers, says scholar
Some interesting bits.

---

Rubin says the American government has betrayed Israel's interests.

The director of the Global Research for International Affairs Centre and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs wrote this week: "The Obama administration has openly sided with Israel's enemies.

I don't mean the Palestinian Authority or Saudi Arabia.

That would be tolerable. We're talking here about openly genocidal, anti-Semitic groups . . . the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah and the Taliban (moderate wing)."

Israel shocked by Obama's "betrayal" of Mubarak

If Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak is toppled, Israel will lose one of its very few friends in a hostile neighborhood and President Barack Obama will bear a large share of the blame, Israeli pundits said on Monday.

Political commentators expressed shock at how the United States as well as its major European allies appeared to be ready to dump a staunch strategic ally of three decades, simply to conform to the current ideology of political correctness.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told ministers of the Jewish state to make no comment on the political cliffhanger in Cairo, to avoid inflaming an already explosive situation. But Israel's President Shimon Peres is not a minister.

"We always have had and still have great respect for President Mubarak," he said on Monday. He then switched to the past tense. "I don't say everything that he did was right, but he did one thing which all of us are thankful to him for: he kept the peace in the Middle East."

7. He's a terrorism expert? I wonder if that's a self-bestowed title...
Anyway, no surprises there about him saying that Obama sides with 'openly genocidal, anti-Semitic groups'. He's said some pretty bizarre stuff about Obama before, and this is the person who thinks that Muslims are over-running Europe.

8. You too can be a terrist expert.
I understand the compensation can be spectacular.

I thought the Nostradamus stuff at the bottom was interesting, reminded me of Revelations a little.
