FROM ONE OF MY MOST TRUSTED E-PALS…..I, like many others, think that Israel cannot rely on the U.S. Past experience, like the eve of the 1967 6-Day war was the same.Resupply of weapons and ammunition during the 1973 war happened only after Israel made drastic threats. Remember the nuclear alert during the war?My own worst fears are that the U.S. would aid the enemies of Israel under this administration. It already has in the promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Mideast and within the U.S. The Bush administration also gave the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR) unprecedented access to the inner workings of the U.S. Government.As most of you know, all this has been well documented.

Chairman of US Joint Chiefs of Staff reveals he and Israeli counterpart Benny Gantz in constant contact on Iran, admits “clocks ticking at different paces,” reach “different conclusions” from intelligence reports.
Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said on Sunday that Israel and the United States view the Iranian nuclear threat differently.
Speaking to reporters on his arrival to Afghanistan, Dempsey said that the US and Israel have a different interpretation of the same intelligence reports in regards to Iran’s nuclear program.
“Israel sees the Iranian threat more seriously than the US sees it, because a nuclear Iran poses a threat to Israel’s very existence,” Dempsey said.
“You can take two countries, give them the same intelligence and reach two different conclusions. I think that’s what’s happening here.”
He also acknowledged that he and his Israeli counterpart, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, regularly confer on Iran. “We speak at least once every two weeks, we compare intelligence reports, we discuss the security implications of the events in the region.”
