Atlanta Jewish Times' publisher, Andrew Adler, penned "What Would You Do," an allegory intended to illustrate the security dilemma that President Barack Hussein Obama's pacificism towards apocalyptic Iran poses for the leader responsible for the safety of Jews. (Read editorial below).
As a potential strategy under consideration by Israel's Prime Minister seeking to pre-empt an Iranian initiated nuclear exchange, Mr. Adler references the "almost unfathomable" option of the authorizing the Mossad to neutralize Obama and threaten the Vice President. Members of the Jewish establishment, such as the Jewish Federation of Atlanta, the A.D.L., the A.J.C., and Rabbi Abe Cooper of the Simon Wisenthal Center were quick and harsh to discredit and ostracize Mr. Adler. He was put under investigation by the US Secret Service. The Atlanta Jewish Federation pressured him to resign editiorship and put the paper up for sale. You can see how they broke Mr. Adler's spirit entirely in this pathetic mea culpa video with the Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters.
Rabbi Moshe Parry comments (in this exclusive video) that the Jewish "establishment" in North America "served Mr. Adler up" out of fear from perceptions of Jewish dual-allegiance to Israel. He alleges the largely secular Democrat, Jewish establishment prioritized their comfort in America over their Judaic obligations to protect and guarantee Jewish dominion of the Holy Land, Israel.

"President Netanyahu: What Would You Do?" by Andy Adler, publisher- January 13, 2012
"You are President Benjamin Netanyahu. You are responsible for 7 million Israeli citizens who comprise the State of Israel. You wake up one morning, and the Israeli Defense Forces' military commander hands you a detailed report regarding what to expect during a major conflict with Hezbollah and Syria five years from today.
The report states that Israel will come under fire from 15,000 rockets and missiles, and that casualties will be in the thousands. That's thousands - not hundreds - thousands.
Simultaneously, another IDF military commander strolls over while you are finishing your first cup of coffee and hands you a report that Iran has reached nuclear launch capabilities.
If that's not enough, an Israeli diplomat informs you that you cannot expect much help from the United States due to its newly implemented military budgets and the administration's never ending "Alice in Wonderland" belief that diplomacy is the answer.
To all the Netanyahus out there, what do you do? Well, here are your "Kobayashi Maru" options. ("Kobayahi Maru" is a term used in "Star Trek: The wrath of Khan" to describe a no-win situation or facing a solution involves redefining the problem).
One, order a pre-emptive strike against both Hezbollah and Hamas knowing that military and civilian casualties will be high, but not as high as they would be in 2017.
Two, go against Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta's wishes that Israel take a lethal bullet in the name of preserving a healthy, worldwide economic climate, and order the destruction of Iran's nuclear facilities at all costs.
Three, give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate the United States' policy includes its helping the Jewish State obliterate its enemies.
Yes, you read "three" correctly. Order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel's existence. Think about it. If I have thought of this "Tom-Clancy" type scenario, don't you think that this almost unfathomable idea has been discussed in Israel's most inner circles?
Another way of putting "three" into perspective goes something like this: How far would you go to save a nation comprised of seven million lives ... Jews, Christians and Arabs alike?
You have got to believe, like I do, that all options are on the table.
With this in mind, I again ask you, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, what would you do?"
