Romney or Obama: Israel's Bosom Buddy

Who Is Friends With Who?

Who is Israel's true friend? Whoever "it is" will be receiving the Gog hype - soon enough. Don't forget the next visit by either "friend" will be his second time in the Land...for which the Zohar states that from the second and third [and final visit] the Geulah takes place as a proper Gog V Magog.  So hype is a guarantee once the next friend takes office, and it seems certain either of them would visit Israel in these next 4 years.

Ironically, Bibi may not even be PM after the shakeup here -  is Livni or Olmert in the cards?
Remeber the famed "Sefer Eliyahu" predicts Olmert is PM, while Rav Kaduri spoke of the Sharon Gov't being the last [enter Olmert and Livni, and voila!]

Oh yes, the bosom buddies are getting comfy. Hold on to your saddle!

And the last Debate is tonite - look for more NWO allusions mixed with scolding questions concerning China, Iran, and Libya. Will these two be even more candid in their schemes?

The United States elections won't change much as far as Israel's relations with Washington are concerned, a former advisor on Middle East affairs to six secretaries of state asserts.

Barack Obama may not be the best US president for Israel, Dr. Aaron Miller says, but he is definitely pro-Israel. Mitt Romney will not offer any real change, he claims.

Having spent 24 years in the State Department, Miller has witnessed countless high-stakes meetings between US presidents and Israeli leaders. A fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Miller has written four books, the most recent of which discussed US efforts to negotiate peace between Israel and the Arabs.

Miller claims that even should Romney be elected president, he would adopt the traditional US foreign policy stance and will not risk antagonizing the Arab world by moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. As president, Miller claims, Romney will no longer need to pander to anyone, so such a move would not be in his interest.

A day before the two candidates face-off on foreign policy in the third and last presidential debate, Miller tried to put things in perspective.

"Too many Democrats want to pretend that Barack Obama is the most pro-Israel president in American history. And too many Republicans want to believe that Mitt Romney is Israel's salvation and will rescue the Jews from the clutches of a sitting president," he says.

"There's no sense at all that Romney has any better ideas on Iran or certainly the peace process than Obama."

Asked how Romney would handle the Iranian threat, Miller says that the Republican candidate is unlikely to give Israel the green-light to attack Iran in one year's time nor is he likely to order a US offensive in the country.

According to Miller, Romney will reconsider any plan to attack Iran once his military advisors explain to him the consequences of such an operation, including its effect on Afghanistan. The last thing a new president wants to see is stock markets plummet and oil price soar, he says.

According to Miller, there's only one country in the world that believes that an attack on Iran is necessary – Israel.

Miller will concede however that Romney is likely to have a better personal relationship with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu than Obama.

Like Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr., Romney has an emotional attachment to Israel, Miller says. His instinct will therefore be to give Israel the benefit of the doubt.

"Obama wasn't raised on the Paul Newman Exodus movie trope in which the Israelis were the brave cowboys and the Arabs were the hostile Indians. His penchant for nuance, complexity, and detachment drives him to avoid seeing matters in black and white.

No emotional connection "His inability to connect emotionally as Clinton and Bush did may make it harder for him to get there in the first place."

"Obama clearly doesn't like Netanyahu's bravado or what he believes is his callous disregard for American interests. In this regard, Obama probably fits somewhere between Carter and Bush Sr. when it comes to how frustrated they were with the Israelis.

But Obama is not an enemy of the state of Israel."

Miller further believes that the incumbent president will not get back at Netanyahu is and when he is reelected. According to Miller, a US president locks horns with Israel for one reason only and that is if he believes he can achieve something in the process.

As far as Miller is concerned the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is dead and as long as it is, it will not be a subject of any power struggle between the US and Israel.

Miller also does not foresee any additional crisis between Obama and Netanyahu "unless the Israeli prime minister does something insane to undermine American interests" which he believes is highly unlikely.
