In his speech, Obama revealed himself as an enemy of the Jewish people. But he is more than that: he is an ally of America’s enemies. President Bush stated in 2004, “We fight the terrorists and we fight all of those who give them aid … If you harbor terrorists, you are a terrorist; if you train or arm a terrorist, you are a terrorist; if you feed a terrorist or fund a terrorist, you’re a terrorist, and you will be held accountable by the United States and our friends.” Obama gives terrorists aid, both in American taxpayer dollars and in world authority. He arms them, feeds them, and funds them. He does so purposefully and proudly.
As a fig leaf, he hands us Osama bin Laden’s body. But it is probably no coincidence that the president has announced his surrender to Hamas within weeks of authorizing bin Laden’s killing. It is no mere accident that Obama began his back-stabbing of Israel by citing bin Laden’s death. He wants us to believe that he is a man of strength and conviction when it comes to terrorism, even as he hands the keys to the Temple Mount to the enemies of freedom.
Obama’s is a “soft” capitulation to terror. He is not Hitler or Stalin. He would not carry out a Holocaust himself. But he would willingly accept a Taliban-led regime in Afghanistan, with all the attendant bloodbaths, if it meant achieving his re-election. He would stand by and watch the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, even if it meant the wholesale slaughter of Coptic Christians. And he has now shown that he would breathe a sigh of relief if Israel happened to disappear.
Jews in particular must decide where they stand – with an anti-Israel president, or against him. Any Jew who contributes to or votes for Obama in 2012 is a JINO – a Jew in name only, a bagels and lox non-entity without the backbone or the intestinal fortitude to stand up for his or her brothers and sisters who now stand a little closer to destruction thanks to a vain and careless speech by our president.
I fervently pray each and every day that Obama should discover a functioning moral compass. I pray, but I do not expect these prayers to be answered.
