Israel Worries Obama “Cannot be Relied Upon”

Ironically, Isreal is condemning its ally Swiss President Hans Rudolf Merz over his scheduled meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the same day that president Obama shook hands with a man that has called for “Death to America, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez….

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton said on Fox News Saturday, “I wouldn’t put anything past President Obama.”

Asked about speculation that Israel is preparing to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, Bolton said on Fox News on Saturday, “Isreal has to make a decision soon because Iran is improving its defenses…”

Nobody that has worked with the Israelis will tell you that they were impressed when President Obama released the so-called “torture memos” this week ….
