Well, I’m not sure how else to put it.

According to this article in the Jerusalem Post, Rahm Emanuel, who is Obama’s Chief of Staff, warned hundreds of top supporters of Israel that stopping Iran’s nuclear program is conditional upon Israel making “progress” in its “peace” negotiations with the “Palestinians”.

Essentially, Emanuel is using third-party nuclear blackmail, implying that if Israel doesn’t do more for the Gazans — you know, the people that all the Arab countries wring their hands over but want nothing to do with themselves — then Obama will sit back and let Iran blow up Tel Aviv with a nuclear weapon. Naturally, the Israelis will not let things go that far but will target Iran’s nuclear facilities themselves if necessary…at which point, Obama will join the chorus of pious denouncers of Israel’s “aggression”.

Politics may suck, but Rahm Emanuel sucks the worst.
