Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu marked the sad occasion with a speech in which he likened the United States' tentative deal with Iran to the European appeasement to Hitler which let to World War II and the Holocaust.
Or perhaps "Holocaust I" as it may be known after "Holocaust II" occurs on Barack Obama's timetable (i.e., "not technically on my watch - but pretty soon afterwards").
Russia is already preparing to ship "defensive" missiles to Iran as soon as sanctions are lifted, and those mischievous psychopaths in North Korea are planning on selling missile system parts to Obama's pals as well. And even the president acknowledges that the "best case" scenario for his deal will only forestall the possible incineration of the Jewish state for 10 years. And that's assuming that Iran - for the first time ever - lives up to their word.
In fairness, B. Hussein did put on his frowny face long enough to read a few platitudes off a teleprompter on Holocaust Remembrance Day, reminding one and all that it was a day "to reaffirm our responsibilities to ourselves." Vague, self-referential word salad which doesn't mean a thing.
Or maybe it does...
Because if that's what the president of the United States thinks we should "Never Forget," it means Israel is in even worse trouble than we thought.
