A New Churchill and Roosevelt?
After Iranian forces in Syria launched a rocket attack on Israeli army bases in the Golan Heights early Thursday, the Israeli Defense Forces attacked more than 50 Iranian targets in Syria in one of the largest operations of the Israel Air Force since 1973. This was the first step Israel took immediately after President Trump embraced its alliance with Israel withdrew from the nuclear deal, in the process untying Israeli hands and freeing them, following the eight years of the Obama Administration, to defend Israel against its enemies with devastating military power.
In analogy to the events that led up to World War II, history will show that Netanyahu has been a Churchill, Obama was a Chamberlain, and President Trump is a pro-Israel Roosevelt.
For the last 10 years, Netanyahu has been like Churchill of the 1930s, acting as a voice in the wilderness warning a complacent world against a gathering storm, which in this case is an ambitious Iran intent on acquiring nuclear weapons and creating regional instability. As a result, the Israeli prime minister was ridiculed, threatened, boycotted, and isolated by the Obama administration, the Democrats, and the world.
Now Netanyahu sees Trump as a partner for broader change in the Middle East, just as Ronald Reagan sought to change the then existing order in Europe. For the first time, there is an American president who sees the danger of Iran just as Netanyahu does and realizes that the ultimate goal should be regime change.
