LISTEN NOW! John, Greg, and Pat discuss how Israel is not afraid to take action towards Iran even if they have to stand alone. They continue to discuss how over a year President Obama was too busy to meet with the Prime Minister of the only ally the United States of America has in the Middle East. However, just a few months ago the White House did meet with P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu before he spoke at the United Nations. The Prime Minister made it very clear that if Israel has to they will strike Iran alone and prevent them from having nuclear weapons. Israel’s statements should not be taken lightly as they often deliver on what they say they will do as this is true when in 1981 Israel took out Iraq’s nuclear reactor,Osiraq. Of course the world and even the U.S. condemned their actions. Israel cannot afford to tolerate cognitive dissonance on their behalf which is the holding of two or more conflicting cognitions; ideas, beliefs, values, or emotional reactions. They cannot lie to themselves and be divided from the truth. However, almost ten years later this is what President Clinton had to say about Israel’s actions “everybody talks about what the Israelis did at Osiraq, in 1981, which, I think, in retrospect, was a really good thing. You know, it kept Saddam from developing nuclear power.” As believers it’s important to stand with Israel when even when standing with Israel will not be a popular thing to do.
