Victor Davis Hanson: Israel’s Good and Bad New Realities
New alliances with Arab nations are positive but unstable, and old enemies are most dangerous when in a weakened state.
The Middle East...interprets a volatile, mercurial Trump as a more reliable ally than a predictable, smarmy, and elegant-sounding Obama, and so feel they can be more overt in their new realignments. To the Arabs, Israel may be an SOB, but it is now perceived as one of their own SOBs. @ThomasWic
