Will the U.S. turn on Israel

When Israel started to bring in the approximately million Russians, many of whom are not Jewish (to say the least), people asked Saba what it was all about, and Saba reputedly answered that the Russians are big and make good soldiers, and in the future the U.S. would turn on Israel, and they would be scared because of the Russian soldiers.

So it's interesting that a conservative radio host, Glenn Beck has recently began to suspect that the U.S. is up to no good.

Beck And Right-Wing Media Have Repeatedly Pushed Theory That Obama May Attack Israel

Beck Claims United States Will "Mount A Campaign Against Israel." On his radio show, Beck discussed the situation in the Gaza Strip, claiming that the Muslim Brotherhood is "taking over the military in Egypt" and forming what he called a "mammoth protection force for the Palestinians." He then said: "I'm telling you, Israel is being set up." He continued: "And you watch, you mark my words, responsibility to protect will be used to go and mount a campaign against Israel. Please, I am begging Jewish-Americans to wake up. Please, wake up." [Premiere Radio Networks, The Glenn Beck Program, 3/25/11]

Frank Gaffney: "The Gadhafi Precedent: Could Attack On Libya Set The Stage For Action Against Israel?" In a Washington Times op-ed, Frank Gaffney commented on the U.S. decision to join a multilateral effort to establish a no-fly zone over Libya, writing that the "Gadhafi Precedent" could be "used in the not-too-distant future to justify and threaten the use of U.S. military forces against an American ally: Israel." [The Washington Times, 3/21/11]

Fox Nation: "Could Attack On Libya Set State For Action Against Israel?" The Fox Nation website highlighted Gaffney's article, using the headline: "Could Attack on Libya Set Stage for Action Against Israel?":

WorldNetDaily: "American Military Targeting Israel?" In a column referring to Gaffney's article, WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein wrote: "Could President Obama's decision to sidestep Congress and strike Libya as part of an international coalition put the U.S. on a military collision course with Israel?" He further stated: "While the prospect of American or Western forces confronting Israeli troops may seem remote, one Middle East policy expert is warning the precedent set by Obama in agreeing to target Libya opens the door to other possible United Nations-backed confrontations, including perhaps one day with Israel." [WorldNetDaily, 3/22/11]

Just to clarify: personally I have almost no interest in predicting the future and trying to decide questions that aren't practical - I have a hard enough time dealing with real life decisions. the reason why i posted this was because Saba supposedly said it and having bumped into that article I put the two together just to get people a little excited, and only because I thought that it can have a positive effect on people helping them realize that they can only rely on H"Y through Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.
