The Watchman: Israel and America: Where is the Alliance Heading?- May 12, 2015

In this week's edition of The Watchman, we sit down with former Israeli Ambassador Yoram Ettinger and Sarah Stern of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) to discuss the future of the America/Israel relationship and what to do about Iran. Read Transcript


Erick: AND WELCOME TO

"THE WATCHMAN."

WELL, IRAN NOW EFFECTIVELY

CONTROLS FOUR ARAB CAPITALS,

BEIRUT IN BE LEBANON,

DAMASCUS, SAMAAN IN SYRIA,

AND BAGHDAD.

AND IT IS DEVELOPING NUCLEAR

WEAPONS AND LONG-RANGE

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILES, ICBMs THAT COULD

BE DELIVERED TO THE U.S. ONE

DAY.

AND WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS

MEAN FOR OUR GREAT FRIEND

AND ALLY, ISRAEL.

JOINING ME TO DISCUSS IT ARE

TWO OF MY FAVORITE MIDDLE

EAST EXPERTS, URAM EDAM IS A

FOREMOST AUTHORITY ON THE

U.S.-ISRAEL RELATIONSHIP.

YOU CAN FIND HIS WORK AT THE

EDINGER.COM.

AND SARAH STERN IS WITH A

TOP NATIONAL SECURITY THINK

TANK HERE IN WASHINGTON.

SARAH, URAM, GREAT TO HAVE

YOU.

URAM, I WANT TO START WITH

YOU.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

PRESSURING ISRAEL, AND ONE

OF THE LYNCH PINS OF THAT

PRESSURE IS IRAN.

I WANT TO START ON A

POSITIVE NOTE.

I DON'T WANT TO SAY WE'RE

GLOOM AND DOOM WITH

EVERYTHING GOING ON IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, BUT WE HAVE TO

BRING THE TRUTH TO PEOPLE.

BUT TELL ME THE GOOD THINGS

IN THE U.S.-ISRAEL

RELATIONSHIP.

YOU'VE HIGHLIGHTED IT OFTEN

IN YOUR BLOG AND IN SOME OF

YOUR ARTICLES.

TELL ME ABOUT SOME OF THE

GOOD THINGS HAPPENING

BETWEEN THE U.S. AND ISRAEL

AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP.

STILL, THE REALITY IS

THAT UNIQUELY IN THE U.S.

ROLE IN THE WORLD, ITS TIES

WITH ISRAEL ARE NOT TOP TO

BOTTOM, BUT BOTTOM TO THE

TOP.

NAMELY, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE

BAD CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THE

PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A. AND

THE PRIME MINISTER OF

ISRAEL, RELATIONSHIPSAND

CORPORATIONS HAS NEVERBEEN

ASROBUST AS IT IS TODAY.

AS WE SIT HEREIN THIS

STUDIO, AMERICAN SPECIAL

OPERATION UNITS ARE TRAINED

IN ISRAEL O ON THE WAY TO

AFGHANISTAN, AS THEY WERE ON

THEIR WAY TO IRAQ, BY

ISRAEL'S TOP EXPERTS ON

SUICIDE BOMBERS, CAR BOMBS,

AND IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVE

DEVICES.

AS WE TALK HERE, THERE ARE

250 TOP AMERICAN HIGH-TECH

COMPANIES, GIANTS LIKE INTEL

AND MICROSOFT AND APPLE AND

GOOGLE, AND THE REST OF

THEM, WHICH DO HAVE RESEARCH

AND DEVELOP CENTERS IN

ISRAEL, WHICH DEVELOP THE

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGIES OF

THOSE BIG-TIME AMERICAN

COMPANIES, WHICH HAS

ENHANCED AMERICAN GLOBAL

COMPETITIVENESS, HAS

INCREASED AMERICAN EXPORTS,

EXPANDED AMERICAN

EMPLOYMENT, AND AS WE SIT

HERE, ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE

IS PROVIDING THE U.S.

INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY WITH

MORE INTELLIGENCE ON ISLAMIC

TERRORISM THAN ALL NATO

COUNTRIES COMBINED, WHICH

SPARES THE LIVES OF MANY

AMERICANS AND MAKES HOMELAND

SECURITY THAT MUCH MORE

ROBUST THAN WITHOUT ISRAELI

INTELLIGENCE.

Erick: AND THAT'S JUST

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.

IF YOU WANT MORE, IT'S THE

EDINGERREPORT.COM.

IT IS AN UNBREAK BELIEVE

BOND OUR TWO COUNTRIES

HAVE.

AND SARAH, YOU'RE DOING

GREAT WORK ON CAPITOL HILL

WITH EMMETT.

YOU SEE BIPARTISAN SUPPORT

ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE.

IN CONGRESS, BOTH SIDES OF

THE AISLE, AND POLL AFTER

POLL SHOWS THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, VERY IMPORTANTLY,

OVERWHELMING SUPPORT

ISRAEL.

TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU SEE ON

THE HILL IN TERMS OF SUPPORT

OF ISRAEL.

THAT'S TRUE, ERICK.

70% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

ACCORDING TORECENT POLLS,

WHICH DO SUPPORT ISRAEL.

ANDTHAT IS IRRESPECTIVE OF

WHO THE OCCUPANT IS IN THE

OVAL OFFICE.

HAVING HAD SAID THAT, I

THINK WE ALWAYS HAD A

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT.

I HOPE IT CONTINUES.

I HAVE TO SAY THAT PRESIDENT

OBAMA HAS BEEN FLEXING HIS

MUSCLES, AND HE DOES WANT

PARTY DISCIPLINE, SO IT IS

VERY DISCIPLINE, ESPECIALLY

AFTER SENATOR ROBERT

MENENDEZ HAD CROSSED HIM,

AND YOU SEE THE INDICTMENTS

THAT ARE COMING DOWN.

AND I THINK IT HAS PUT A

LITTLE BIT OF FEAR OF THE

OFE OVAL OFFICE -- THE

REPERCUSSIONS FOR STANDING

OUT ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE

OF THE AISLE.

Erick: WE SAW THAT IN

THE SPEECH BACK IN MARCH,

WHERE SOME DEMOCRATS DIDN'T

ATTEND.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Erick: AND YOU THINK IT

IS AS A RESULT OF THE

PRESSURE FROM THE OVAL

OFFICE?

ABSOLUTELY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS ABLETO

MANIPULATE THIS INTO MUCH

MOREA BIG DEAL THAN IT

EVER HAD BEEN.

Erick: YEAH.

AND IT'S VERY SAD.

I HOPE -- I THINK THAT THE

SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL

THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES

IS ROBUST AND SOUND, AND

PEOPLE WILL LISTEN, AND

LEGISLATORS WILL LISTEN TO

THE WILL OF THEIR

ELECTORATE.

Erick: AND THAT'S WHY

IT IS SO IMPORTANT, WHAT WE

ARE DOING HERE TODAY, URAM

AND SARAH, WE'RE GETTING THE

WORD OUT TO PEOPLE AT HOME,

AND WE'RE ENCOURAGING PEOPLE

WHO ARE SAYING, THE

U.S.-ISRAELI RELATIONSHIP IS

OVER, BUT THE TIES REMAIN

VERY STRONG, BUT WE HAVE TO

REMAIN VIGILANT AND EDUCATE

PEOPLE AND SOUND THE ALARM,

AND I BELIEVE HOLD THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION ACCOUNTABLE

FOR THE WAY THEY'RE TREATING

ISRAEL.

URAM, SPEAKING OF THE WAY

THEY ARE TREATING ISRAEL,

THE WAY THIS OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION DEAL IS

DISASTEROUS.

SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING,

WHAT'S IN THIS DEAL?

I KNOW IT IS BAD, BUT WHY?

CAN YOU TELL OUR VIEWERS WHY

THIS DEAL IS BAD NOT ONLY

FOR ISRAEL, BUT FOR

AMERICA?

I WOULD SAY PRIMARILY FOR

THE U.S.A. BECAUSE AS FAR AS

IRAN IS CONCERNED, THE U.S.,

AND NOT ISRAEL, IS THE PRIME

TARGET FOR POTENTIAL NUCLEAR

CAPABILITY.

Erick: THE GREAT

SATAN.

THE GREAT SATAN.

AND ISRAEL IS THE SMALL

SATAN.

MORE THAN THAT, THE AIM OF

IRAN IS TO DOMINATE THE

GULF, AND TO DOMINATE THE

MUSLIM WORLD WHERE ISRAEL IS

NOT A PLAYER.

THEY ARE A MAJOR OBSTACLE ON

THE WAY TO DEMOCRAT NATION

HAS BEEN THE U.S.

PROJECTION, AND THEREFORE

THEY WANT TO DEVELOP THE

MEGA CAPABILITY IN ORDER TO

REMOVE THE MEGA AMERICAN

OBSTACLE, AS THEY VIEW IT.

SHOULD THERE BE A NUCLEAR

IRAN, WE DEFINITELY ARE

GOING TO WITNESS AN

AVALANCHE OF THE

PRO-AMERICAN ARAB GULF

COUNTRIES, AND THEN FURTHER

ARAB COUNTRIES, JORDAN AND

EGYPT, WHICH WOULD SEVERELY

UNDERMINE AMERICAN INTEREST,

AND WOULD CAUSE HAVOC, AS

FAR AS THE SUPPLY OF OIL,

THE PRICE OF OIL, AND

THEREFORE ALSO WOULD DAMAGE

SEVERELY THE AMERICAN

ECONOMY.

A NUCLEAR IRAN WOULD

RENDER -- WOULD LEND A MAJOR

TAIL WIND TO THE FEW HUNDRED

ISLAMIC SLEEPER CELLS IN

THIS COUNTRY, WITH IRAN

BEING THE CENTRAL BANKER OF

GLOBAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

AND CERTAINLY A NUCLEAR IRAN

WOULD MAKE THE PROBLEMATIC

ANTI-AMERICAN REGIME IN

VENEZUALA THAT MUCH MORE

AUDACIOUS ANTI-AMERICAN.

AND WHAT WOULD STOP THE

REGIME IN VENEZUALA TO ASK

THE IRANIANS TO DEPLOY A

NUCLEAR SUITCASE TO CARACAS,

AND HOW DIFFICULT WOULD BE

IT TO BRING IT FROM CARACAS

TO ONE OF THE METROPOLITAN

AREAS OF THE U.S.?

THE PROBLEM WITH THE CURRENT

DEAL IS THAT THE CURRENT

NEGOTIATION IGNORES

COMPLETELY THE IRANIAN TRACK

RECORD.

WE HAVE A TRACK RECORD OF

THE NUMBER ONE ANTI-AMERICAN

ROGUE REGIME, THE NUMBER ONE

TERRORIST SUBVERSIVE HUMAN

RIGHTS VIOLATOR, OPPRESSIVE,

NO HUMAN RIGHTS IN IRAN, AND

THEY HATE EDUCATION --

ANTI-AMERICAN AND THEY HATE

EDUCATION -- YOU HAVE

NOTHING OF THAT IN THE

AGREEMENT.

NAMELY, THE U.S. TREATS IRAN

AS IF IT WAS A

LEGITIMATE --

Erick: ECONOMIC

BROKER.

-- PARTNER TO THE

NEGOTIATIONS.

Erick: THE BEIRUT

BOMBING IN '83 NEVER

HAPPENED.

OR CURRENTLY TRYING TO

TOPPLE THE AMERICAN-SAUDI

REGIME, THE POTENTIAL

BLOCKING OF THE OIL ROUTES

TO THE PERSIAN GULF.

Erick: A PLOT AGAINST

THE SAUDIS HERE IN

WASHINGTON IN 2011, AND IT

GOES ON AND ON.

AND YOU EXPECT THE U.S.

TO PRE-CONDITION ALL SORTS

OF GOODIES TO IRAN ON THE

DRAMATIC CHANGE OF THE

NATURE OF THE REGIME.

THAT, BY THE WAY, CALLS EACH

ONE OF THE VIEWERS HERE,

BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL

CONSTITUENTS, TO IMPRESS

UPON THEIR REPRESENTATIVES

IN THE HOUSE AND IN THE

SENATE TO FERTILIZE AND

WATER THE SEED, WHICH WAS

PLANTED BY THE CORKER

AMENDMENT.

NAMELY BETWEEN NOW AND JUNE,

WHEN THEY MAY CONCLUDE AN

AGREEMENT, THE THERE SHOULD

BE A SERIES OF HEARINGS ON

THE HILL, DISCUSSING THE

NATURE OF THE IRANIAN

REGIME, AND INTEGRATING IT

INTO THE FINAL AMERICAN

POSITION ON IRAN.

AND NOT LESS IMPORTANTLY,

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN

SUCCESSFUL IN

MISREPRESENTING THE MILITARY

OPTION AS IF IT IS AT WAR.

BUT, IN FACT, ANYONE WHO

REMOVES A MILITARY OPTION

FROM THE TABLE IS INVITING A

NUCLEAR WAR.

Erick: WE'VE LEAVE IT

RIGHT THERE, URAM.

I HATE TO CUT YOU OFF.

SARAH, WE'RE GOING TO GET TO

YOU AFTER THE BREAK.

WE'RE TALKING IRAN.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: WELCOME BACK.

WE'RE TALKING TO FORMER

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR, URAM

EDENGER, AND SARAH STERN.

WE'RE TALKING IRAN, THE

MIDDLE EAST, ISRAEL, AND

AMERICA.

SARAH, THIS CORKER MENENDEZ

BILL -- SOMETIMES AMERICANS

GET LOST IN THE WEEDS WHEN

IT COMES TO BILLS BEING

MADE.

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT THAT

BILL.

AND YOU HAVE AN INITIATIVE

WITH EMMELT, THA EMMETT,

WHICH YOU HAVE, AND I WANT

YOU TO TELL US HOW WE CAN

TELL YOU?

THE CORKER MENENDEZ WAS

BECAUSE OF SENATOR

MENENDEZ'S LEGAL ISSUES, AND

CORKER CARDON.

IT BASICALLY GIVES THE

UNITED STATES SENATE 30 DAYS

TO REVIEW THE DEAL.

Erick: THE IRAN NUCLEAR

DEAL?

YES.

AND THAT MEANS ON

JUNE 30th, WHEN THEY

FINALLY DO HAVE SOMETHING

COMMITTED TO PAPER, BECAUSE

THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE

FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT THAT WAS

WRITTEN DOWN, THE U.S.

SENATE HAS ITS

RESPONSIBILITY THAT WAS

GRANTED BY THE FRAM MERERS

OF THE CONSTITUTION TO

BASICALLY REVIEW AND ASSENT

TO IT.

UNFORTUNATELY --

UNFORTUNATELY, I DID NOT

BELIEVE, AS MANY OTHERS DO

NOT BELIEVE, THIS IS

ENOUGH.

BECAUSE WHAT WE NEED RIGHT

NOW IS FOR THE CORKER CARDON

BILL -- IT WAS A START

BECAUSE PRESIDENT OBAMA

REALLY WANTED TO TOTALLY

IGNORE THE U.S. SENATE AND

CONGRESS AND OUR ELECTED

OFFICIALS.

WHAT WE NEED IS TO LOOK AT

THE IRANIAN NUCLEAR DEAL AS

A TREATY.

IF THERE WAS EVER ANYTHING

THAT WOULD AFFECT NOT ONLY

OUR LIVES HERE IN AMERICA,

THE LIVES OF OUR ALLIES IN

THE GULF STATES, AND IN

ISRAEL, BUT ALSO THE LIVES

OF OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN, IS THIS

DEAL.

AND WE NEED, AS THE FRAMERS

OF THE CONSTITUTION HAD

ESTABLISHED TWO-THIRDS OF

THE SENATE TO RADIFY IT.

SO THIS IS EXTREMELY

IMPORTANT.

I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD

CALL INTO THEIR ELECTED

OFFICIALS.

YOU CAN GET TO THE SENATE

SWITCH BOARD BY DIALING

202-334-3121, AND ASK THAT

THIS BE REGARDED AS A TREATY

BECAUSE IT IS.

IF ANYTHING SHOULD BE

REGARDED AS A TREATY, THIS

IS.

AND IT REQUIRES TWO-THIRDS

OF THE SENATE TO REVIEW AND

FOR ITS ADVICE AND CONSENT.

Erick: IT IS EMMETT

EMMETTONLINE.ORG.

YOU CAN FIND OUT WHY THIS IS

IMPORTANT AND DISASTEROUS,

IN MY VIEW.

URAM, BEFORE THE BREAK WE

WERE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF

TIMES PRESIDENT OBAMA,

WHETHER HE IS TALKING ABOUT

ISIS OR IRAN, HE SAYS

AMERICANS ARE WAR WEARY.

HE DOESN'T SAY HE DOESN'T

WANT TO USE THE MILITARY

OPTION, BUT, HINT, HINT,

WE'RE NOT GOING TO USE THE

MILITARY OPTION.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KEEP

THAT OPTION ON THE TABLE,

WHEN IT COMES TO IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM?

AND WHY IS THAT A LOT MORE

DOABLE THAN THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS LEADING

ON?

FIRST AND FOREMOST, IT IS

VERY IMPORTANT TO DESIST

FROM MISREPRESENTATION.

AND MILITARY OPTION IS NOT

NECESSARILY A WAR.

THERE IS A LITANY OF

OPTIONS.

FOR MILITARY OPTION --

BEFORE YOU GET TO A WAR.

FOR INSTANCE, SURGICAL

BOMBING.

WHEN YOU SURGICALLY BOMB

SOME INSTALLATIONS WITHOUT

GROUND TROOPS, YOU ARE NOT

INVOLVED IN A WAR.

THIS HAS HAPPENED MANY, MANY

TIMES.

MORE OVER, IN 1988, AFTER

EIGHT YEARS OF WAR BETWEEN

IRAN AND IRAQ, WITH IRAN

REFUSING FOR A CEASE-FIRE,

THEY FINALLY AGREED.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEN PRESIDENT

REAGAN BOMBED A NUMBER OF

IRANIAN INSTALLATIONS, AND

IRAN ASSUMED THEY WERE

DEALING WITH AN AMERICAN

DOBERMAN, NOT WITH AN

AMERICAN POODLE.

Erick: I HATE TO CUT

YOU OFF AGAIN, MY FRIEND,

BUT WE'RE GOING TO PICK IT

RIGHT UP AGAIN AFTER THE

BREAK.

DON'T MOVE.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WE'RE TALKING TO URAM

EDINGER AND SARAH STERN.

URAM, I HATED TO CUT YOU OFF

BEFORE THE BREAK.

WERE YOU MAKING A CRUCIAL

POINT.

PICK UP ON THAT POINT.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SHOWING

STRENGTH TO THE IRANIAN

REGIME.

WHEN YOU CARRY A BIG

STICK AND SHOW WILLINGNESS

TO USE IT, YOU PREVENT WAR.

WHEN YOU DO NOT CARRY A BIG

STICK, OR WHEN YOU REMOVE

THE BIG STICK, A MILITARY

OPTION FROM THE TABLE, YOU

ONLY INTENSIFY -- YOU FUEL

AGGRESSION.

YOU FUEL RADICALISM, IN THIS

CASE ON THE PART OF IRAN.

AND, THEREFORE, THOSE WHO

REMOVE A MILITARY OPTION

FROM THE TABLE, THEY ARE

GOING TO BRING ABOUT A

NUCLEAR WAR.

AND A MILITARY OPTION MEANS,

FOR INSTANCE, A POTENTIAL OF

BOMBING OF URANIUM

INSTALLATIONS SURGICALLY

WITH NO TROOPS ON THE

GROUND.

Erick: THAT'S THE KEY

APPOINTMENT YOU DON'T NEED

GROUND TROOPS TO DO THIS.

DURING THE 1980s,

PRESIDENT REAGAN BOMBED

LIBYAN INSTALLATIONS.

THAT PUT AN END TO LIBYAN

ACTIVE ROLE IN INTERNATIONAL

TERRORISM BECAUSE THE

LIBYANS REALIZED WE'RE

DEALING WITH AN AMERICAN

MARSHAL WHO IS WILLING TO

USE HIS GUN, NOT WITH AN

AMERICAN POLICEMAN WHO IS

RETIRED, HIS GUN.

THE SAME THING WITH THE

ASSUMPTION THAT THE WHITE

HOUSE HAS REFLECTED THAT

SUPPOSEDLY THE IRANIANS,

JUST LIKE THE SOVIETS, ARE

AWARE OF MUTUAL ASSURED

DESTRUCTION.

THEY MAY HAVE 10 NUCLEAR

WARHEADS, AND AMERICA HAS

THOUSANDS, AND THEREFORE

IRANIANS WOULD BE DETERRED.

THE SOVIETS WERE DETERRED BY

THE MUTUAL DISTRACTION.

THE APOCALYPTIC IRANIANS DO

NOT CONSIDER IT AS A

BURDEN.

THEY CONSIDER IT AS AN

INDUCEMENT TO GET FASTER TO

THE GOAL TO MEET WITH THEIR

GOD AFTER BRINGING HAVOC

UPON THE SO-CALLED IN

INFIDEL AMERICANS.

Erick: A KEY, KEY

POINT, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THE IRANIAN IDEOLOGY IS WHAT

FUELS THIS AT THE END OF THE

DAY.

IT IS A MESSIANIC IDEOLOGY,

AN END-TIMES IDEOLOGY THAT

THEY SHAPE POLICY AROUND.

SARAH, YOU'RE ON THE HILL

FREQUENTLY, AND YOU'RE

AROUND LAWMAKERS.

IS THERE A LACK OF A GRASP,

I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY, OF

THE IDEOLOGY?

PEOPLE KNOW TERRORISM IS

DANGEROUS, BUT DO PEOPLE ON

THE HILL, OUR LAWMAKERS,

REALLY GET THE IDEOLOGY THAT

FUELS IT ALL?

SOME DO AND SOME DON'T.

IT IS REALLY HARD TO

GENERALIZE.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO DOVE

TAIL ON TO SOME OF THE

THINGS THAT URAM SAID SO

WELL.

EVERY SINCE APRIL 2nd,

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA

APPEARED IN HIS ROSE GARDEN

AND TOOK THE OFF THE TABLE,

WE HAVE SEEN HOW IRAN HAS

BEEN FLEXING THEIR MUSCLES.

WE SAW HOW THE MAERSK

TIGRIS, THE MARSHAL ISLANDS

CARGO SHIP WAS CON MAN

COMMANDEERED BY THEM.

HASSAN FALAMI, WHO IS THE

DEPUTY COMMANDER JUST SAID

BASICALLY WE WELCOME THE

OPPORTUNITY -- WE WELCOME

THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEAT

AMERICA.

WE ARE AT WAR WITH AMERICA.

Erick: AND THIS IS A

TOP OFFICIAL OF IRAN'S ELITE

REVOLUTIONARY GUARD'S

CORPS.

RIGHT.

THE RECENT ARREST OF HUMAN

RIGHTS ACTIVISTS -- THERE IS

A WONDERFUL WOMAN, MOHAMEDI,

WHO HAS BEEN IN CHARGE OF

HUMAN RIGHTS, AND SOCAROFF

ALWAYS SAID, IF YOU WANT TO

KNOW THEFOREIGN POLICY OF

ANY COUNTRY, LOOK AT THE WAY

THEY TREAT THEIR

DISSIDENTS.

AND JASON RAYSON, A

"WASHINGTON POST" COLUMNIST

WHO RECENTLY HAD CHARGES

TRUMPED UP AGAINST HIM, AND

THEY SAY HE HAS BEEN SPYING

ON IRAN BY THE UNITED

STATES --

Erick: AND PASTOR

SAEED --

YES.

Erick: AND THEY'RE

BASICALLY MAKING YEMEN A

VESSEL STATE THROUGH THE

HOUTHIS.

RIGHT.

WHAT WE'RE DOING IS

EMPOWERING THE BEAST.

I WOULD LIKE TO QUOTE

WINSTON CHURCHILL WHO SAID,

HE WHO FEEDS THE CROCODILE

IS ONLY EATEN LAST.

Erick: I THINK THAT'S A

GREAT WAY TO END IT.

SARAH STERN AND URAM

EDINGER, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I LOVE QUOTING CHURCHILL.

THAT IS A MAN WHO REALIZED

AND SAW THE GATHERING

STORM.

WE NEED THAT TODAY.

SO EMMETTONLINE.ORG AND THE

EDINGERREPORT.COM.

AND GET IN THE EAR OF YOUR

LAWMAKERS.

THAT'S ONE BIG LESSON

TODAY.

AND AFTER THE BREAK, FIND

OUT HOW YOU CAN JOIN "THE

WATCHMAN" IN ISRAEL LATER

THIS YEAR.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: I'LL BE HELPING
