Listening to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak to the House of Congress on May 24th made me wish we could share him with Israel—as our U.S. president—and leave Obama in Europe where his leftist/socialist internationalist thinking belongs. Netanyahu is a far better friend to America than our president is to Israel.
Prime Minister Netanyahu gets it. He wants peace for all, not the select radical few Obama is enabling. America cannot abandon Israel or make the insane demands Obama is forcing on Israel with his pre-1967 Israeli borderline slap-in-the-face. That stipulation is no different than telling black Americans to return to the pre-Civil Rights Act era, or Ireland to its British Landlord era. Imagine the uproar if Obama were to make those insidious orders. Envision the pandemonium if Benjamin Netanyahu suggested Americans ought to return itself to Great Britain and forgo the Constitution and Amendments? That condition is no different than Obama’s appalling declaration against Israel.
Now who’s the better friend and leader to the free world?
Netanyahu comprehends Israel’s best ally cannot reject the only stable democracy in the Middle East. Don’t assume Obama is oblivious to such facts. He gets it. But, like all leftists, his socialist philosophy rejects Israel’s existence on the grounds that government knows what’s best for all human beings—statist control without Jews having a nation. To push that belief, Obama declared the Arab Spring violence is “an extraordinary thing, ” saying “The people [of these Arab nations] have risen up to demand their basic human rights.”
That’s quite an odd statement to make when Arab Spring is not about basic human rights. Israel is the only nation in the Middle East that promotes liberty and human rights. Israel seeks peace with Arab nations, but those nations do not attempt peace accords with Israel. What is sought is the extermination of Israel and Jews. Thus, when Obama praises Arab Spring as an “extraordinary thing,” he is demonstrating admiration for Muslim Brotherhood supporters and other groups who supported Hitler. Those are not the friendships America wants.
“Israel has no better friend than America, and America has no better friend than Israel. We stand together to defend democracy. We stand together to advance peace. We stand together to fight terrorism…In an unstable Middle East, Israel is the one anchor of stability. In a region of shifting alliances, Israel is America’s unwavering ally. Israel has always been pro-American. Israel will always be pro-American. My friends, you don’t have to—you don’t need to do nation-building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. And you don’t need to send American troops to Israel. We defend ourselves.”
What more can this nation ask for than an ally who proudly declares America as their friend and says they will always support us “unwaveringly,’ because, they are “pro-American.” When was the last time you heard Europe say that? Better yet, can you name a time when Arab nations referred to America in such a way? The reference to America from the Middle East is “Death to America.” You’ll never hear that from Israel.
Netanyahu’s loyalty and patriotism to America is extraordinary. His country does not inhabit violent protesters committing rape and murder. Our nation has no better friend than this man, who stood on our Congressional House Floor recently and swore unconditional friendship to America. Yet, Obama wants this Netanyahu and Israel to go back to a vulnerable borderline that would cause insurmountable bloodshed of Jews. But this coincides with Obama’s leftist beliefs of course. And his convictions grinds against the existence of Israel.
