Currently, we are witnessing the first time that President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have achieved precisely what they detailed, described and worked on in the realm of foreign policy. With terrorists attacking Israel by the minute, the international world condemning Israel, and the Obama Administration’s (now-lifted) decision to ban flights to Israel, while simultaneously continuing to fund Hamas, a terrorist organization, the words described by America’s leaders have indeed come true.
