You don't learn from history we're destined to repeat it.
I fear that's exactly what's happening right now on the stare down between Iran and Israel.
It appears that Barack Obama is Neville Chamberlain to Benjamin Netanyahu's Winston Churchill.
One man thinks we can reason with maniacal -- the other knows that playing with a snake leads to snake bites.
For those who think this this is just some mere political gamesmanship.
I assure you -- while it might be for the White House for Israel it is most certainly not.
The president is often spoken.
Of his familiarity with Muslim countries for having spent some of his growing up years and them and having family members who are -- I visited in numerous Muslim countries myself.
Including Egypt in Jordan Kuwait.
Iraq Afghanistan Turkey Syria Lebanon Pakistan and some brief stops in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
I confess that my experience with Muslim countries while reasonably -- is not as extensive as that -- President Obama.
But then his experience with -- Israel is nowhere close to mine.
-- having made some twenty trips there many of them extensive dating all the way back to 1973.
He's visited once very briefly for about a day mostly to Jerusalem when he was a candidate and even then spent part of that day meeting with Palestinian leaders.
I say that because I understand something.
That I truly don't think the president does.
That is that Israel is not fighting for a few extra acres or even square miles of -- -- It's not in a battle to get more foreign aid from us -- to protect its exports to the United States.
It's not merely fighting for its life is a sovereign nation at a protects its economy its borders or its way of life.
It is literally fighting for the very existence of the Jewish people.
Jews had been hunted in March for annihilation for over 2000 years within the lifetime.
-- many of the present day Jews.

Who are still alive.
Many Israelis are one generation away from parents and relatives who were murdered.
In an attempt to do what Iran has -- it will do -- -- from the face of the earth.
Having been so close to extinction.
No rational person could doubt that Israel has the resolve to deny a -- mad dog leader to secure nuclear weapon.
Israel has been our only reliable ally in the Middle East.
It's the only nation in that part of the world.
Whose democratic government and -- celebrities come close to mirroring hours.
We have far more than an organizational relationship with natural.
We have an organic relationship with them.
A threat to Israel.
Is a threat to the United States.
When an Israeli soldier sworn into the military he -- she is taken to the Judy and desert fortress of Masada -- to the western wall for that ceremony.
Those soldiers swear their allegiance at Masada will not fall and the wall.
Which was there in the time of the ancient temple will not be lost again.
I wouldn't bet on President Obama to stand with visual.
But I would bet my life that Israel will not surrender.
It can't it has no place to go.
We can elect a new president.
But Israel can't find a new home.
And they can't lose the one to which they are biblically.
