Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin broadcast his radio show from Israel Wednesday night. Live from the Middle East, he didn’t pull any punches in a blistering critique of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s questionable foreign policy views.
He slammed Tillerson for holding the bizarre worldview that solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would miraculously create peace in the entirety of the Middle East.
Levin quoted Tillerson, who said, “We solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace dilemma, we start solving a lot of the peace throughout the Middle East region.”
“Does he really believe this Obama position? This European position?” Levin asked.
“So in other words, there wouldn’t be an ISIS. There wouldn’t be an Al Qaeda. There wouldn’t be a Hezbollah. There wouldn’t be a Hamas. There wouldn’t be an Islamic jihad,” he commented, mocking the Tillerson plan.
“Is this Tillerson serious? Sounds like an idiot,” Levin said bluntly.
“He goes right from the oil company, right into the midst of this stuff, and he makes no sense,” the Conservative Review editor said of the secretary of state’s inexperience.
