I have the TV audio on in the background and I just heard Andrea Mitchell ask Ambassador Michael Oren (paraphrasing) why Israel's opinions are more valid than those of the US in re the Iranian menace. Praise the Lord!
Oren was startled by the question and mumbled their usual talking points. Among them was the idea that "Iran is next door to Israel." Say what? By my calculation we are talking a range set of at least 1,000 miles. That is about as far as - what in the US?
I guess Oren thinks his former American countrymen are even more ignorant of geography than they are. I had a workman here in Alexandria ask me last week how close Iran is to Israel. He was amazed and "gobstruck" when informed of the distance.
Is this something new that "they" have been up to? pl
"right next door to us"
