The full text of this week’s message follows:
The media is focused on the secret U.S. documents WikiLeaks made public.
There are many revealing items.
One stands out – Iran.
What’s new, you might ask.
It turns out that Arab countries have begged the U.S. to do something about Iran.
In public, they’ve remained largely silent, pretending Iran only poses a threat to Israel.
But, in private, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and others have sounded the alarm bells, urging tough action.
Also, Iran has more advanced missiles than previously thought, thanks to North Korea. Those missiles can now reach Europe.
Further, Iran has abused its ambulances to smuggle personnel and weapons into war zones. That totally violates Red Cross rules.
And Iran supports murderous anti- U.S. terror groups, including the Taliban.
Washington has been mobilizing the world to adopt tougher measures against the Iranian threat. With each passing day, it becomes still clearer why.
This is David Harris of AJC.
