Barack Obama’s Top Ten Insults Against Israel

Pages: 1 2

Reprinted from

Last week Israel celebrated its 62nd year as a nation, but there was major cause for concern amid the festivities as the Israeli people faced the looming menace of a nuclear-armed Iran, as well as the prospect of a rapidly deteriorating relationship with Washington. The Israel-bashing of the Obama administration has become so bad that even leading Democrats are now speaking out against the White House. New York Senator Chuck Schumer blasted Barack Obama’s stance towards Israel in a radio interview last week, stating his “counter-productive” Israel policy “has to stop”.

At the same time a poll was released by Quinnipiac University which showed that US voters disapproved of the president’s Israel policy by a margin of 44 to 35 percent. According to the poll, “American voters say 57 – 13 percent that their sympathies lie with Israel and say 66 – 19 percent that the president of the United States should be a strong supporter of Israel.”

I recently compiled a list of Barack Obama’s top ten insults against Britain, America’s closest ally in the world. This is a sequel of sorts, a list of major insults by the Obama administration against America’s closest ally in the Middle East, Israel. As I wrote previously on Obama’s treatment of both Britain and Israel:

In the space of just over a year, Barack Obama has managed to significantly damage relations with America’s two closest friends, while currying favour with practically every monstrous dictatorship on the face of the earth. The doctrine of “smart power” has evolved into the shameless appeasement of America’s enemies at the expense of existing alliances. There is nothing clever about this approach – it will ultimately weaken US global power and strengthen the hand of America’s enemies, who have become significantly emboldened and empowered by Barack Obama’s naïve approach since he took office.

The Obama presidency is causing immense damage to America’s standing in the free world, while projecting an image of weakness in front of hostile regimes. Its treatment of both Israel and Britain is an insult and a disgrace, and a grim reflection of an unbelievably crass and insensitive foreign policy that significantly undermines the US national interest.

So here’s my top 10 list of Obama administration insults against Israel after just 15 months in power:

1. Obama’s humiliation of Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House

In March, the Israeli Prime Minister was humiliated by Barack Obama when he visited Washington. As The Telegraph reported, “Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family”, after being presented with a list of 13 demands. As I wrote at the time:

This is no way to treat America’s closest ally in the Middle East, and a true friend of the United States. I very much doubt that even third world tyrants would be received in such a rude fashion by the president. In fact, they would probably be warmly welcomed by the Obama White House as part of its “engagement” strategy, while the leaders of Britain and Israel are frequently met with arrogant disdain.

2. Engaging Iran when Tehran threatens a nuclear Holocaust against Israel

In contrast to its very public humiliation of close ally Israel, the Obama administration has gone out of its way to establish a better relationship with the genocidal regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which continues to threaten Israel’s very existence. It has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.

3. Drawing a parallel between Jewish suffering in the Holocaust with the current plight of the Palestinians

In his Cairo speech to the Muslim world, President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:

“On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.”

4. Obama’s attack on Israeli “occupation” in his speech to the United Nations

In his appalling speech to the UN General Assembly last September, President Obama dedicated five paragraphs to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, without once referring directly to Palestinian terrorism by name, but declaring to loud applause “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza. The speech served as a ghastly PR exercise aimed at appeasing anti-Israel sentiment in the Middle East, while bashing the Israelis over the head.

    Let's just admit it. Obama is unqualified for the job of President. He is leading "from behind," which is kind of like walking a tiger on a leash.

    He isn't competent for the job and was elected because of the nation's fatigue with George W. Bush. He has surrounded himself with like-thinking ideologues, most of whom are academics with similarly no real world experience.

    It's my fervent hope that like Jimmy Carter, he is decisively dumped after one term.

    • Angel

      Oh, I disagree completely! He knows exactly, what he is doing. This is not incompetence this is a willful attack by the president. An agenda that destroys this nation prestige while at the same time, destroys little Satan. Look all he has accomplish in 2 1/2 years! Destroyed our economy, virtually destroying our security, putting Israel in clear and present danger. Who is to say what this SOB can accomplish in his remaining time in office. Obama only failing is that when comes to covert action he sucks. But maybe there is no way to be a SOB without making it look like you are not.

  • IamJoseph

    Omitted are two of the worst deeds by Osama – oops I mean Obama. Remember these beauties:

    1. Declaring before Regimes in Egypt that every one knows Israel was a result of the Holocaust. The reverse applies: the holocaust was a result of Jews displaced from their homeland.

    2. That Allah Akbar is the most beautiful sound Obama has ever heard. Not so for those who's families' throats were cut while they slept.

  • StephenD

    IamJoseph, Good points!
    Tell me one thing this Administration has done that a Socialistic, Anti-American, Islamic ideologue would not have done.
    EVERYTHING he does tells us who he is. "You shall know them by their fruit."
    Truer words were never uttered.

  • Rev. Roy Trepanier

    "There is nothing clever about this approach – it will ultimately weaken US global power and strengthen the hand of America’s enemies, who have become significantly emboldened and empowered by Barack Obama’s naïve approach since he took office"……"Barack Obama's naive approach"….When will you Americans learn ??? What will it take?? Obama is not "naive"…He is doing EXACTLY what he said he would do, bring change to America…except it is not the CHANGE YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GETTING.
    Open your eyes…everything the man has done and is doing is designed to destroy the good old U.S.A. and bring in the Socialist/Marxist government his handlers want…but even they are being fooled by this Islamic wanna be Caliph of the coming new Islamic Caliphate. Islam will chew them up and spit them out when they have served their purpose. (see part 2)

  • Rev. Roy Trepanier

    How far God will allow this to go is the only uncertainty in this whole issue. I am speaking of the one true God, by the way, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel and the Christians, through inheritence in those who believe in the deity and atoning death of Jesus Christ. All signs point to a very immediate conclusion of these events, preceded by the disappearance of millions of believers…"As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the son of man"… Are you ready for what is coming ??? Read John 3, verse 3, and Revelation 20, verse 15. It's not too late…………. yet.

    Rev. Roy.

    • Fred Baehr

      Rev baby, let me help you out with this. God, you see, will do nothing. Its what he does best. Its really just people like you who do things and then say God did them. If it weren't for God the world would be a more peaceful place. But since you believe in prophesy then you must believe God has always known how everything is going to go down anyway. But if God knows about all the evil to come and can't stop it then he is an impotent god. If he could stop it but chooses not to, then he is a malevolent god. So whence cometh evil Rev.? Not from God you bet. It comes from all the wide eyed believers who act in his name. But God isn't telling who's team he's really on. Everybody has a holy book. Everyone hears God's directions. You. Qaradawi. The Dalai Lama. Obama. Osama (in some better world). The evil among us is all you believers who lie to yourselves so much for so long that you become convinced of your own lies and call them truth. It is thus you are "saved". Good luck.

    Before the election America saw him with the preacher Wright, then America put on its blinders and voted for the s.o.b., just the same. We shouldn't be surprised. Two of the first things he did after getting into office is to send ten or twenty million to the Palestinians through an executive order which lets him bypass Congress. These are the folks who danced in their streets in celebration of 9/11. God, knows, maybe Obama was dancing in Chicago, too.
    Then he shipped to England a bust of Winston Churchill that had been in the White House for ages. Anyone with any foresight could get an idea of where all this would take us.

  • LindaRivera

    No innocents on earth should be prevented from living and building on their own land or forcibly removed from their homes and land because they are not Muslim!

    It is a crime against humanity that Obama is determined that little Israel should surrender half her highly cherished Biblical homeland and half of Holy Jerusalem to Islam. To barbaric, implacable enemies bent on Jewish genocide.

    • mrbean

      The Arab curse on Obama, May the fleas from ten thousand camels make their home in his crotch.

  • mrbean

    Barack Hussein Obama was a practicing Muslim throughout his entire youth through high school, as an undergraduate at Occidental and Columbia where he studied under his selected Marxist professors, at Harvard law school, after graduating Harvard Law School and even after passing the bar, and only converted for political reasons to the Marxist based Black Liberation Christian crackpot sect under the anti American, openly racist, anti-semite Reverend Jerimiah Wright when in his 30's. He is a clandestine Muslim and a vile Marxist anti-semite.

  • Ghostwriter

    Most Americans support Israel. It's a shame President Obama doesn't see that.

    • Patty B

      BHO believes and stated "We are no longer a Christian nation."
      Funny, I never seen that memo. Maybe 'he thinks' since he is president,
      he speaks for the entire country, and we all know he is muslim. He quotes, 'the HOLY Koran" and says "Bible". He is up the butts of all the arab countries, and turns his back on Israel. Times are getting close to the end conflict. It will be great to see Jesus rip into these ungodly people.

  • Asher

    Barack Obama is on God's list of those who want to destroy Israel…His Day of Reckoning is coming like All of Islam!

  • SavetheRepublic

    Barack Haman Obama

    The proper way to spell the betrayer's name.

  • polyspheric

    Let’s hope that after the 2012 election, we have enough inertia to reverse all the foulness he and his Democrat friends perpetrated.

  • steve

    All the U.S. ever gets with Israel and the Arab Nations is put in the middle, I say we should wash our hands of them all, pull all our troops home, stop all foreign aid, and worry only about us-AMERICANS!!! And let me just go ahead and stop all the "anti-Semite-anti-Islam" comments, because, I dislike everybody equally!!!

  • Steve Chavez



  • Geddy

    BHO is a muslim. He acts it, does not deny it. (saying he is Christian is not the same as denying he is muzzie) America is finished. Over. Dead. The corruption of Bush, Clintoon, and BHO have placed the final nails in the coffin of freedom. Soon it will be the USA of UN. May God forgive me for serving in the military and helping reid, pelosi, BHO, dead kennedy, frank and murtha become billionaires.

  • Dispozovdaburka

    Bill Clinton says that Obama needs 4 more years in office to complete his plan.
    The "capstone" on the "pyramid." one might say.

    Obama and Hilary were furious that B.Netanyahu embarassed the President on National Television.
    Israel and a strong leader like Bibi are the real the enemies to them.
    No doubt they will go to any lengths to destroy the character of Bibi to weaken his creditability in the world.

  • Wayne Johnson

    So what have you done? I see a lot of belly aching but have you spoken to a voter every day about this? Have you made phone calls to your family and friends? What have you done? Just complain and sound like you are part of the good crowd? In our family all of whom were democrat until we realized that OUR party was co-opted by the American communist party are now all Independent TEA Party people…. our extended family is 250 people and if any vote for any demo rat or RINO anywhere that person is disinherited and disowned. Are you doing that ? Or do you just like to complain and sound big? Each family member is assigned to "convert" ten democrats to sanity before the election in 2012… What are you doing, just complaining and sounding big?

  • FriendofGaryCooper

    We have made plenty of telephone calls to our Congressmen and Senators; and
    for our efforts have received answering machines at their offices. However, no one
    is going to mount an effort to impeach Barack Obama,(as he should be) for crimes against the American people, against our faithful allies(Israel and England), and against world peace. If Obama is defeated in 2012, as he most likely will be,
    he should be prosecuted for these crimes, and denied his Presidential pension.

  • Patty B

    I am beginning to wonder how much do we really know about BHO. He fumbles with his birthdate, he has many names on documents, were still not sure where he was born, nobody has come forward knowing him in school or college. No friends to mention their relationship. This man came out of the blue, secret past, and he is doing everything he can to take America apart brick by brick. Its so dark and sinister, gives me chills.

  • FriendofGaryCooper

    And why won't Barack Obama release his educational records? Probably because
    they would show that as an Affirmative Action student, he got through Harvard Law
    School without the hard work and uncertainty that is normally associated with a
    degree from that institution. And why does he have a phony Social Security number?
    THAT's certainly strange. And didn't Wayne Allyn Root say that no one at Columbia
    remembers Obama? Hmmmm…..

    And Wendy Deng is a great lady.


    What can we expect from a Muslim/Marxist named Barack HUSSEIN Obama…

  • Fred

    And just think that many Jews voted for this dangerous clown.

  • Flipside

    I think Nile should clarify here whether or not he is issuing a fatwa against the President of the United States. It looks like it.

  • Michael Richards

    But Obama’s right. Why should we pander to Israel regardless of their reckless policies?

    • Under Dog

      Because they’re our ally.
      Because all of their military operations are completely defensive.
      No one in the ME fears an invasion by Israel – they only wish to be left alone.
      Because they’re a democracy that is living under continual daily threats.
      Oh, and because their scientists create valuable products and research that make our lives better.
      We don’t pander to Israel – we have disagreements. Their interests are only concerned with their survival. Obama has done more to threaten that than any other US president in that country’s history. He supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for heaven’s sake – the population had to riot in the streets and toss out the leaders after they forcibly imposed Shara on them. Regular Egyptians will remember that for a long time. Egypt is an ally, and we helped put them under sharia law. Isn’t that a wonderful way to treat an ally?
