Israeli Columnist: “Start Filling Your Sandbags, We’re in For a Rough Ride”
Weekly Standard – In reaction to President Barack Obama’s reelection, a top Israeli newspaper is warning, “start filling your sandbags. We’re in for a rough ride.” The column, written by David M. Weinberg, is published today in Israel Hayom.
“I’d like to believe that President Barack Obama’s re-election means nothing significant for U.S.-Israel relations, since “all Democratic and Republican presidents over the past four decades have been solidly pro-Israel” — as Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom argued on Israel Radio this morning. But Shalom is putting a pretty face on a forbidding situation,” writes Weinberg.
