Barack Obama’s Top Ten Insults Against Israel

Pages: 1 2

5. Obama’s accusation that Israel is the cause of instability in the Middle East

As The Wall Street Journal noted, “the Obama Administration seems increasingly of the view that Israel is the primary cause of instability in the Middle East”, citing a recent press conference where he stated:

“It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them. And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.”

6. The Obama administration’s establishment of diplomatic relations with Syria

While actively appeasing Iran, the Obama administration has also sought to develop closer ties with the other main state sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East, Syria, establishing diplomatic relations with Damascus in February. Syria remains a major backer of Hamas and Hizbollah, both responsible for a large number of terrorist attacks against Israel.

7. Hillary Clinton’s 43-minute phone call berating Netanyahu

As The Telegraph reported, Hillary Clinton sought to dictate terms to Israel in the wake of Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Jerusalem:

“In a telephone call, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, ordered Mr. Netanyahu to reverse a decision to build 1,600 homes for Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem that sparked the diplomatic row. She also instructed him to issue a formal pledge that peace talks would focus on core issues such as the future of Jerusalem and the borders of a Palestinian state. In addition, the Israeli prime minister was urged to make a substantial confidence-building gesture to the Palestinians. Mrs. Clinton suggested this could take the form of prisoner releases, an easing of the blockade of Gaza and the transfer of greater territory in the West Bank to Palestinian control.

Last time I checked, Israel was still an independent country, and not a colonial dependency of the Obama White House. Yet that still hasn’t stopped the Secretary of State from acting like an imperial Viceroy.

8. David Axelrod’s attack on Israeli settlements on “Meet the Press”

It is extremely unusual for a White House official to launch an attack on a close US ally on live television, but this is exactly what the President’s Senior Adviser David Axelrod did in an interview in March with NBC’s Meet the Press, designed to cause maximum humiliation to Israel, where he stated in reference to new settlement construction in East Jerusalem:

“This was an affront, it was an insult but most importantly it undermined this very fragile effort to bring peace to that region. For this announcement to come at that time was very destructive.”

9. Hillary Clinton’s call on Israel to show “respect”

As The Telegraph revealed, the Secretary of State lectured the Israelis at a dinner attended by the Israeli ambassador and the ambassadors of several Arab states in mid-April, urging Israel to “refrain from unilateral statements” that could “undermine trust or risk prejudicing the outcome of talks”. In Clinton’s words:

“Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has embraced the vision of the two-state solution. But easing up on access and movement in the West Bank, in response to credible Palestinian security performance, is not sufficient to prove to the Palestinians that this embrace is sincere. We encourage Israel to continue building momentum toward a comprehensive peace by demonstrating respect for the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians, stopping settlement activity and addressing the humanitarian needs in Gaza.”

10. Robert Gibbs’ disparaging remarks about Israel

Not one to shy away from criticizing America’s friends when the opportunity arises, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs entered the fray in an interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace in March where he attacked the Israeli government for weakening “the trust that’s needed for both sides to come together and have honest discussions about peace in the Middle East.” In condescending terms he stated that Benjamin Netanyahu should start “coming to the table with constructive ideas for constructive and trustful dialogue about moving the peace process forward.”

    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?
