    "Obama has in recent months begun to make it clear to Israel that the United States would not get involved in a war started by Benjamin Netanyahu without preliminary US approval.

    Indeed, on January 20, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, informed Netanyahu that the US would not defend Israel if it launched an attack on Iran that had not been coordinated in advance with the US.

    In May 2008, Netanyahu’s predecessor, Ehud Olmert, had requested the approval of George W Bush for an air attack on Iran. To his credit, Bush had refused to countenance any such move.

    Netanyahu has since defied the US administration by refusing to assure Washington that he would consult them before making a decision to attack Iran.

    Other US officials have apparently made it clear to Netanyahu that the US, unless fully consulted, would refuse to come to Israel’s aid in the event of Israel declaring war on Iran unilaterally.

    If Israel did that, it would be on its own.

    It would be a mistake for Israel to assume that America is under obligation to protect it from the consequences of its own folly.

    Writing in the Huffington Post, political commentator MJ Rosenberg advances the audacious theory that Israel has no wish to go to war right now, but is more interested in flexing its muscles and playing cat-and-mouse games with America. It wants to show everyone that Israel is now the Cat and America the Mouse: “Netanyahu and his camp followers do not really want a war now. They just want it understood that they can dictate whether there is one or not. And when. In other words, they want to show who is boss.”

    It’s time for a showdown.

    The capital of America needs to be moved back to Washington. Tel Aviv is too far away."

    Something I just came across:

    "The battle of Good and Evil has come to our corner of the universe. This planet and all evil is scheduled for demolition.

    Evil does have some powers of creation, but only can do this by stealing energy from True Beings.
    The elaborate vehicle to achieve this is our existence in this 3D world. Evil has created false beings in human form. It is basically a programmed meat sack. The current ratio is 70% false and 30% True Beings.

    You have the same programming for evil as the false beings. The big difference is that you contain the Divine spark of creation within. The challenge for the True Being is to overcome the “monkey mind” or yourself, and let this Divine spark manifest."

    Interesting times we live in!

    "Obama has in recent months begun to make it clear to Israel that the United States would not get involved in a war started by Benjamin Netanyahu without preliminary US approval"

    Translation: Israel, we own you.

      Obama's is right in his motive (to stay out of war) but wrong in his intention (to hold Israel back). What he should be saying is "We're not going to sanction a war with Iran right now or maybe never. If you (Israel) feel the need to go, go on your own. Don't expect anything from the US and don't drag us into it.
