Award-winning American journalist Dr. Mike Evans, one of the world’s leading experts on the Middle East and author of the book Game Changer, visited Israel’s Knesset on Thursday.
During the visit, Evans told Israel National News TV’s Hezki Ezra that he wrote Game Changer after President Barack Obama said that nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists would be a “game changer.”
He explained that the book, a fictional story, revolves around Iran smuggling nuclear weapons into the United States using proxy organizations such as Hamas and Hizbullah, and then attacking major American cities using these weapons.
Evans emphasized that Israel is not in the book and added that the Iranian threat which he describes in Game Changer, is something which is “highly probable” according to former CIA Director James Woolsey.
According to Evans, “the core issue” for President Obama “has nothing to do with the Palestinians. It has to do with the ceremony in the White House in which he can get another agreement.”
Obama’s agreement, says Evans, can only be achieved if Israel’s current government is brought down, which he claimed Obama is trying to do “so that he has a partner in peace for his objectives, not your objectives.”
Evans emphasized that Israel “has enormous support” in the U.S. in the form of what he called “Christian Zionists. There’s more than 52 million of them and they’re uncompromising, unapologetic supporters of the State of Israel, and they will take out any American president who reaches a finger to touch the city of Jerusalem or to take the land away from the Jewish people.”
Evans has served as a confidant to leaders in the Middle East for more than two decades. He has met with 52 world leaders, including former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, to whom he recommended Binyamin Netanyahu for his first political appointment. He has appeared on hundreds of network television and radio shows, including Good Morning America, Crossfire and Nightline. His articles have been published in The Wall Street Jorunal, USA Today, The Washington Times, and newspapers worldwide.
