Once again, Obama is on the wrong side of history and is increasingly looking the fool. US foreign policy is in a shambles. As the free world scrambles to fill the vacuum left by Obama's abandonment of American hegemony, US officials are pitching fits over new alliances made without US sanction or involvement.
....one of the U.S. sources said, “We’re watching what Iran does closely. But we’re now watching what Israel is doing in Azerbaijan. And we’re not happy about it.”
The United States now believes that Israel has been granted access to air bases in Azerbaijan, which shares a border with Iran. Bravo! If Obama is not "happy about it," what is his objective? A nuclear Islamic regime bent on destroying "the big satan" and the "little satan?"
Obama's hostility towards Israel is hardly surprising. I warned of his policies towards Israel and the Jewish people in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America. His ugly alliances and troubling relationships are meticulously documented. What wasn't knowable was just how hostile Obama would get with the Jewish homeland. If his anti-Jewish mentors and advisors are any indication, Israel would be wise to realign with other freedom-loving nations as quickly as possible.
Israel will save the free world without American assistance (if it must).
Foreign Policy quotes U.S. diplomats as saying “We’re now watching what Israel is doing in Azerbaijan. And we’re not happy about it” • A series of quiet political and military understandings have won Israel access to these air bases, senior U.S. sources explain.
Senior American diplomats and military intelligence officers have told Foreign Policy magazine that the United States now believes that Israel has been granted access to air bases in Azerbaijan, which shares a border with Iran. “The Israelis have bought an airfield,” a senior official told Foreign Policy in early February, “and the airfield is called Azerbaijan.”
According to the Foreign Policy report, Israel’s embassy in Washington, the Israel Defense Forces and the Mossad spy agency were all contacted for comment but did not respond.
The Azeri Embassy in the U.S. also withheld a response, but a U.S. military intelligence officer has noted, according to Foreign Policy, that when posed with the question in the past, Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Safar Abiyev had not explicitly said his country would bar Israeli bombers from landing there after an attack on Iran. Nor did he rule out granting Israel permission to station search-and-rescue units in the country, according to the report.
Israel’s ties with Azerbaijan, a Muslim country that became independent with the disintegration of the Soviet Union, have grown as its once-strong strategic relationship with another Iranian neighbor, Turkey, has deteriorated. For Israeli intelligence, there is also a possible added benefit from Azerbaijan: its significant cross-border contacts and trade with Iran’s large ethnic Azeri community.
Speaking to Foreign Policy, one of the U.S. sources said, “We’re watching what Iran does closely. But we’re now watching what Israel is doing in Azerbaijan. And we’re not happy about it.”
