Gingrich: Obama Endangers Israel

Sunday, 03 May 2009 09:30 PM

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that the Obama administration is endangering Israel through its reckless engagement with Iran and the Arab world.

"There's almost an eagerness to take on the Israeli government to make a point with the Arab world," he said just before his speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's annual conference.

"They are systematically setting up the most decisive confrontation that we've ever seen," Gingrich told the Post, referring to news reports about the administration's approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He called the administration’s efforts to engage Iran a "fantasy," that would set up a foreign policy conflict with the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He summed up Obama's approach as "the clearest adoption of weakness since Jimmy Carter."

The U.S., he said, should be sending the message to Israel that "we are for the survival of Israel" and that "we are not going to tolerate Iran getting nuclear weapons."
