* ChinaView.cn brings us the following report...
There are no real differences between viewpoints of U.S. President George W. Bush and his new successor Barak Obama over the Iranian issue, Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Thursday... "There is a slightly different attitude between the president-elect and the outgoing president, in regards to how the world relates to extremism in the region," she said... "There are those who think that (America) has to be aggressive, and there are those who think that there has to be dialogue. Obama falls into the second group," Livni was quoted as saying in an interview with Israel Radio...

Though the Prime Minister and other Knesset Members welcomed Obama's win warmly, some expressed the fear that Obama might lead policies that would leave Israel isolated... MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said, "We must be very concerned about Obama's victory. He plans to quit Iraq soon, and this will endanger Israel, and he is liable to pay in Israeli currency for various agreements with Arab countries. His declaration that he will talk with Iran essentially means that Israel is left alone on this front."...

Israel left uneasy by Obama victory

* IsraelNationalNews.com has the following editorial posted on their website today, Friday November 07, 2008... The election of Barack Obama, an epochal event in America’s history, nevertheless fills many people with trepidation... At a time when America and its allies face their greatest international challenge since the passing of the Cold War, Obama comes to his office with limited experience of international affairs. His perception of the field, insofar as he is known to have expressed it, seems informed partly by na├»ve and ideologically motivated preconceptions: to solve a conflict, sit down with an adversary, decide on a bargain, implement it, and then go home. This seems to be his approach to adversaries like Iran...

In a meeting with visiting US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Friday, Barak said Israel is 'convinced that Iran continues to try to build a nuclear weapon'... Tehran, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), denies the Israeli claim and insists that its enrichment program is solely directed at the civilian applications of the technology... Senator Barack Obama, the 44th president-elect of United States, has vowed to engage Iran with dialogue to resolve the nuclear dispute... "We don't rule out any option. We recommend others don't rule out any option either," Ehud Barak said after the meeting with Rice in regard to Obama's Iran policy...

*************************

If you ask me... get ready to pay $7.00 - $10.00 a gallon for gasoline at the pumps in the next few months.

Israel cannot afford to wait for this weak Obama President to take office in January and depend on him for any kind of STRONG SUPPORT after they take down Iran’s many nuclear facilities.

In short, Iran will likely be near to having a Nuclear Bomb by the end of next year. If Iran is to be STOPPED from the path it is taking on Nuclear Weapons... Israel will have to do something before Obama takes office. Simply put... Israel KNOWS President Bush has got their back... Obama has nothing but words, just speeches.
