U.S. House’s Only GOP Jew Pens Devastating Letter To Obama Over Israel Position

The U.S. House has a lone wolf running loose, but he isn’t shy. In fact, the wolf is the only Jewish Republican- and he has written Obama a succinct letter detailing to Mr. President just what he is doing by arming Iran and ignoring Israel. Read more from Western Journalism:

In a recent editorial published on The Journal, New York Rep. Lee Zeldin took Barack Obama to task for his position regarding America’s closest Middle Eastern ally, Israel. Zeldin’s perspective is particularly relevant given his status as the only Jewish Republican currently serving in the U.S. Congress.

The military veteran began by pointing out that threats against Israel are also an inherent threat against the U.S.

“If a nation like Iran was to receive nuclear capability,” he wrote, “America’s security would be immediately weakened. That’s why we must do everything possible to stop Iran from ever having nuclear capabilities.”

It is that Iranian threat, Zeldin pointed out, that prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to America to share his concerns in an address before Congress.

During the speech, he explained, Netanyahu affirmed that “he does not oppose an agreement with Iran; he opposes a bad agreement.”

Zeldin echoed Netanyahu’s remarks, writing that a “bad deal with Iran is worse than no deal at all” and lambasting the idea that America would be best served by “making a slew of permanent concessions on our side in return for temporary concessions on the part of Iran.”

It is incumbent upon legislators, he wrote, to “work together to strengthen our relationship with Israel and protect both of our nations against those who want to harm us.”

In his concluding sentence, Zeldin addressed the Obama administration’s reluctance to join in that effort.

“It is my hope,” he stated, “that the Obama administration will start standing with our allies in Israel and stop protecting our enemies.”

Ok, Obama, How many reality checks are you going to need before you get a clue? The people have spoken. The Jewish community has spoken. How do you still think that these are good foreign policy moves? When will you start protecting the country you were elected to lead and stop aiding our enemies? Zeldin speaks the truth, Mr. President. Take note.
