As our president embarks upon his travels to the Middle East this week, one could only pray that he will speak the cold truth to his Arab partners.
The situation in the Middle East is about to reach a tipping point. In May 2009, Iran launched a missile capable of striking Israel. In defiance of U.N. resolutions and sanctions, Iran has been developing the capability to make a nuclear bomb for years. It is not an unreasonable inference that if Iran, under the leadership of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had the capability, it would destroy Israel.
