During this Christmas Season, one cannot celebrate without reflecting on the story of the Magi — the Wise Men. They traveled a great distance, following a star, and carrying treasure chests filled with gold, frankincense and myrrh. They stopped at Herod’s castle on their journey to Bethlehem to pay their respects to the king. The demented, demon-possessed Herod attempted to trick the Magi. They had their agenda, and the king certainly had his. Israel’s newest wise man bearing gifts is US President Barack Obama. Much as did Herod, he also has his own agenda—to find a way to push the Iranian crisis into the hands of the next president. Mr. Obama would then be able to go down in history as an anti-war president no matter the cost.
