Obama Enigma: Four More Years of Him?

Sir, - Martin Sherman presents us with a most sobering challenge concerning the behavior of Barak Obama as a second-term president. "The prospect of a White House incumbent with an inherent affinity for Israel's adversaries and unshackled by considerations of reelection is one that must be considered with the utmost seriousness."

Sherman impeccably presents both sides of the Obama enigma by noting the fact that his administration has acted forcefully and frequently to preserve critical Israeli interests, while also reminding us of his initial outreach to the Muslim world and his belligerence toward Israel and its prime minister. Martin Sherman possesses rare analytical skills and the ability to present his arguments with linguistic precision and unassailable logic. These qualities serve to reinforce his thesis and should cause both Americans and Israelis to carefully weigh the risks involved.
