Bolton however intimated that  the current American leader and his party, are virtually lame, suggesting that it was  through their struggling economy or lack of interest in overseas support for their allies abroad.

It would seem as though Israel would have to act alone,doing whatever it deems necessary to secure its borders,and risk whatever criticism comes her way.

The former ambassador said that America will only step in if it becomes absolutely necessary. He intimated that the Arab world perceived the current US administration as being weak referring to the actions taken after four Americans were killed in Benghazi in  September 2012.

Bolton was thanked by Dvir Abramovich, chairman of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Committee.
