ROSENBERG What Bush Should Do
by Joel Rosenberg
[novelist] 7/17/06

The rapidly intensifying war against Israel -- funded, fueled and driven by proxies of Iran and Syria -- poses a critical test for President Bush at the G8 Summit in St. Petersburg. The leader of the free world must make it crystal clear that Vladimir Putin has an urgent choice to make: Russia can choose free markets, free elections, open trade and a peaceful and positive relationship with the West....or it can choose to side with dangerous and diabolical regimes such as Iran and Syria. It cannot do both.

The Ezekiel Option

The Last Days

The Last Jihad


Over the past year:

  • Russia has signed a $1 billion deal to sell missiles and other weaponry to Iran, despite the fact that Iran has called on the Muslim world to envision a world without the United States, repeatedly called for Israel to be "wiped off the map," and denied the Holocaust ever happened.
  • Russia has continued to sell nuclear technology to Iran, despite the fact that much of the West is convinced Iran is trying to build, buy or steal nuclear weapons.
  • Russia has agreed to sell missiles to Syria.
  • Russia has resisted U.S. and European efforts to place sanction on Iran (or North Korea) for threatening to annihilate sovereign nations and for repeatedly lying about the development of its nuclear program.
  • Russia has agreed to sell arms to Hamas, and Mr. Putin has denied that Hamas is a terrorist organization.
  • Russia has sat by passively as Iran and Syria have created a formal defensive alliance against the U.S., Israel and moderate Arab regimes in the Middle East.
  • Such behavior is absolutely unacceptable. As the Bush Doctrine states: in the War on Terror, you're either with us, or against us. If you aid and abet terrorist groups or terrorist states, then you must pay the consequences. Thus far, Russia has sided with the forces of terror, not the forces of freedom.

The U.S., therefore, should reverse course and refuse to approve Russia's bid to enter the World Trade Organization (WTO) unless and until Russia demonstrates conclusively that it has stopped selling missiles, nuclear technology and other weapons systems to the terror masters in Tehran and Damascus and until Russia proves willing to challenge these rogue states (and Pyongyang) forcefully and decisively in the U.N. Security Council. As of right now, the U.S. is set to approve Russia accession to the WTO within the next few days.
President Bush should also:

  • Publicly question whether Russia should be a member of the G8 given its increasingly close ties to terrorist states like Iran and Syria, not to mention Mr. Putin's aggressive attacks against free markets and free elections within Russia.
  • Use the bully pulpit to highlight Iran and Syria's complicity in this unfolding new war against Israel.
  • Publicly and vigorously defend Israel's right to self-defense.
  • Veto any and all U.N. resolutions that would condemn Israel for trying to defend herself.
  • Make sure the Pentagon is fully prepared with contingency plans to launch a massive air attack against Iran to destroy her nuclear program if diplomacy fails.
  • Call on Congress for a dramatic increase in funding to complete a workable missile defense shield to protect Americans and our allies, particularly those in the Middle East and East Asia.
Iran and Syria's two-front war against Israel is quickly spinning out of control. Hundreds of thousands of innocent Israeli, Palestinian and Lebanese families are suffering because of it and the apocalyptic events I wrote about fictionally in The Ezekiel Option suddenly now look increasingly plausible.

It is time for President Bush to draw a line in the sand with Mr. Putin. The President should truly challenge the emerging political and military alliance Russia is making with Iran and Syria. Russia is helping make the Middle East a very dangerous place, and let's be clear: if the Kremlin doesn't reverse course immediately, the worst may be yet to come. CRO
