A leader of weak character
Noah Klinger

Op-ed: If Putin and Assad succeeded in fooling Obama, Iranians will most certainly do the same.

“To tell you the truth, I believe Obama is not interested in an Iranian nuclear weapon. I also believe that he understands the imminent danger to the world in light of the Iranian nukes. But with President Obama there is still a big gap between good will and action – as we have already seen recently. When he vows to take firm action on a critical issue, there is no doubt he means it – the problem is he finds it difficult to keep his promises.

“When he vows to take firm action on a critical issue, there is no doubt he means it – the problem is he finds it difficult to keep his promises.

Obama, it appears, is a leader who capitulates often and falls prey to foxes like Putin and Assad. They simply deceive him. The result is that the leader of the free world is incapable of keeping his promises.

Take, for example, Syria. But he was also the one who refused for a long time to believe that the tyrant had attacked his own people with chemicals weapons. When he finally accepted the world’s outcry and decided on a strike – he fell for the shady plan concocted by Putin, an agreement devoid of any meaning which gives no peace or stability to the region. To put it simply, Obama did not keep his promise regardless of all explanations and interpretations surrounding that capitulation. It’s clear to all that Assad will not give away all the chemical weapons in his possession.

If Putin and Assad are successful in fooling the American president, the Iranians will most certainly succeed in doing the same thing. Indeed, it is a grim reality when the man heading the strongest power in the universe is revealed as a person with excellent speaking skills but a weak character.

The only conclusion from all of this is that Israel must be concerned about Obama’s promise. Unfortunately, the problem is not the American president’s intentions. It’s just his character which fails over and over, for “the spirit is willing but the body is weak.”
