Caroline Glick is an Israeli-American writer, senior editor, and columnist for The Jerusalem Post. While visiting the U.S., she joined Federalist Radio Hour to discuss America’s current relationship with Israel and the greater Middle East, the Israeli reaction to Donald Trump, and the propaganda stunts of Hamas.
Glick addressed some of the critiques of President Trump’s foreign policy and his meeting on Wednesday with PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas at the White House. “I think that there’s been a romanticization of American foreign policy that it’s about saving the world,” Glick said.
Russia is back as an important player in the Middle East and a heavy influence in Iran’s regime. “They are the North Korea of tomorrow. They are the Kim Jong Un of tomorrow but with jihadist aspirations and world imperialist aspirations,” Glick said. “The only way you can overthrow the regime in Iran…is to get the Russians to stop protecting the regime.”
