Obama Throws Israel to the Dogs


Pages: 1 2

Whatever Obama meant about Israel’s borders, the establishment of a Palestinian state will come at the expense of Israel’s security. It will not make for peace any more than the withdrawal from Gaza did. In those days the learned analysts were predicting that a withdrawal from Gaza would pacify the Palestinians and normalize their sick society. I said, in contrast, that it would just be another jihad base for more attacks on Israel. That’s what it became. And that’s what a Palestinian state would be also.

The Kuwaiti MP Jama’an Al-Harbash summed it up on Al-Jazeera on March 29, 2010. First he quoted the notorious genocidal hadith in which Muhammad predicts a Muslim genocide of Jews: “Allah willing, a war will be waged between us and them – the war foretold by the Prophet Muhammad: ‘Judgment Day will not come before you fight the Jews – with them on the west bank of the river, and you on the east bank – and the trees and the stones will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him.’ This war is drawing near, Allah willing.”

With eerie prescience, al-Harbash then declared of the now-toppled regimes in the Middle East that “the countries of surrender and appeasement, and those who have forsaken the holy places and the land, in their efforts to cling to their seats and pass them on [to their sons] – they will be trampled underfoot by the mujahideen.”

Finally al-Harbash explained the nature of the conflict: “This is a war of religion, not just a war between Arabs and Israelis, or a war between liberators and occupiers. This is an ideological war, an Islamic war, which will end in victory only under the banner of Jihad.”

Those who believe that will not be pacified by the creation of a Palestinian state. They will not lay down their arms and accept Israel’s existence, even its truncated, bisected existence, because the Palestinians have statehood. Not only will they not be pacified; they will be emboldened – emboldened to fight on against their bloodied and weakened adversary. Emboldened to move in for the kill.

Obama’s Thursday address thus amounted to a betrayal of Israel, and an attempt to sign its death warrant. Binyamin Netanyahu immediately issued a statement saying that he was going to seek “a reaffirmation from President Obama of U.S. commitments made to Israel in 2004, which were overwhelmingly supported by both Houses of Congress,” including commitments about Israel “not having to withdraw to the 1967 lines which are both indefensible and which would leave major Israeli population centers in Judea and Samaria beyond those lines.”

Will Obama honor this request? Unlikely. But it is good that it is going to be made. Netanyahu has made clear that Israel will not acquiesce to Obama’s betrayal and go gently into the night.

And so now more than ever, all free people must stand with Israel.

    "You could open a burka factory with all those veiled threats."
    You take offense where none is meant,ziontruth.Another sign that maybe you are a tad bit too suspicious or maybe even paranoid.Of course,given your and our history to your people,maybe that's understandable.Still,it remains problematic if not a barrier to understanding,intentions and trust.You know of course I lived and fought in Rhodesia.Even so,I was observant enough to know that change was necessary and imminent.Indeed,all Zimbabweans were let down by the ruling black elite lead by Prime Minister Robert Mugabe.Not the outcome that Israeli's and Jews want to hear.But then Palestine was largely occupied and colonized by the Diaspora,followed by de facto ethnic cleansing.We can of course argue these points,but I stand by my accusations,more or less,and with important qualifications.i.e.the continuous Jewish Palestinian presence since Roman times.

    " survival of Israel to human beings rather than to Him."
    Your religious beliefs are of interest and relevant only in my understanding your motives and actions.Otherwise,like the Muslims and their beliefs,I mostly respect them
    where they do not conflict with my core human beliefs,but otherwise they are irrelevant to my opinions.

    "Let the Arabs with their over 20 states and the Muslims with nearly 60 states, in both cases covering a huge mass of land on the globe, ponder the true meaning of "land greed" (and paranoia as well–every children's doll from the West is a "Zionist conspiracy" with those guys) before they accuse anyone else of that."
    One could say that about any one people in say,Africa,Asia or Latin America.The truth is that we are talking about the Palestinian Arabs,not the Egyptians,Libyans,Saudis,etc.Your argument may be sincere but serves merely as a red herring and does not address the Palestinian issues.To be fair,we would have to make the same argument for the Jews,where they were citizens of numerous countries.The idea of a homeland for Jews (as for Palestinians,by the way) is not unreasonable,but when it came to the practical aspects of implementing that idea or dream,maybe it was unreasonable,given the impact on the Palestinians and the neighborhood and region.Unless,of course,you claim a God given right,but that argument will fall on deaf ears with me,ziontruth.muchiboy

      "Of course,given your and our history to your people,maybe that's understandable."

      You keep claiming empathy with the Jews, yet you still exhort them to concede land to a society of savages. Yours are empty words.

      "The truth is that we are talking about the Palestinian Arabs,not the Egyptians,Libyans,Saudis,etc."

      All are Arabs. All are part of one nation, and one nation deserves only one state. This one nation has more than one state, meaning more than it deserve. Therefore, all grievances on the part of this nation are by nature illegitimate.

      "Your argument may be sincere but serves merely as a red herring…"

      My argument is the only one the anti-Zionists deserve. It is unjust and illegitimate to propose taking away portions of the little land the Jewish nation has.

      "The idea of a homeland for Jews (as for Palestinians,by the way) is not unreasonable,…"

      The Jews are the Palestinians, the only true Palestinians. Your so-called "Palestinians" are Arabs, part of the Arab nation, indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula, settler-colonist land-grabbing invaders everywhere else.

    its not courage its money obama get over $500,000,000 From the muslims. he has been well paid off.

  • Larry

    You have to be kidding. Obama claims to be A Christian but acts more like a Muslim. He will stand by or help in the destruction of Israel. He is the very worst American President Israel has to contend with. I can only pray that he will be a one term President.

  • Rosine Ghawji

    you are right ….. Obama is speaking what is the best interest of all middle eastern countries and helping them to make their dream of an islamic world come true. I thought he was the president of the US and looking for the best interest of the US and so far the islamic way of life and the Sharia are totally opposed to the US constitution

  • Stephen_Brady

    Courage? Did Hitler need courage to kill the Jews?

  • sodizzy

    how can it bring peace when israel always keeps its part and the arab world goes back on its word every time?

  • Jeff

    Are your crazy? Israel has restored the land and it is now productive. It was a waste land nobody called home before they returned. Besides, there is already a Palestine state, it's called Jordan. That land was given for peace with the Arabs in 1925 and how well has that worked?

  • DAVID

    Hey Jim….your no too bright are you?

  • Viktoria

    jim
    how misguided car you be? there can never be peace with a group of people who want to wipe you out. It's their faith tradition that has them all blinded to actual truth.
    these poor fools have been brainwashed to hate almost from birth. they will never, ever give in. Wake up before its too late cuz they're coming here next! Do you even know what Islam is? What they believe? Get equipped for the big battle buddy cuz no one's gonna get left out of this one.

  • generalissimo

    Are you refering to that peace process that has been thwarted many times before in history? I know you don't care about it, but the state of "palestine" has been offered many times to the arabs and always rejected. They don't want a 2 state solution; they don't want Israel to have a state. All they do is bellyache about phoney grievances of apartheid and genocide from the Israelis, when it's their arab and muslim "brethren" who never even grant them citizenship on their countries and constantly remind them that palestinians are a "minority" even in other muslim countries.
    muslims never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. The only thing that will ever pacify the middle East is the destruction of islam as a political construct, that denies alliances between muslims and non-muslims. Until those people shake off those ideas and become properly educated human beings, civically responsible and culturally responsible, then no peace will ever exist. Islam is a cancer that must be irradiated before it metastisizes to the rest of the world.

  • nocal

    Uh, no its not!

  • mhojai

    You should clarify that as "all MUSLIM countries"… don't expect Israel to expedite a "peace process" (read suicide pact) with anyone who openly advocates their ultimate extinction …
    How stupid do you have to be to think Obama has anyone's interest in mind but his own?!

  • Larry

    Just wondering if you happen to be an Arab or just a run of the mill anti-semite?

  • scum

    your'e so funny

  • MixMChess

    The truth hurts, huh?

    Obama spent 1.3 Trillion in the first month of office. That's more than Bush spent in 8 years with two wars running. The fact that the 1.3 Trillion is still being spent on many things that have nothing to do with rejuvenating the economy leads me to believe that the 1.3 Trillion dollar bailout was a fraud and waste of money for the US Taxpayers.

    Now Geithner is scaring Americans again into believing that not raising the debt ceiling will cause of greivous harm. Meanwhile Obama is telling taxpayers we need to turn over our hard earned money to the people of Egypt so they can take their viva la revolucion and shove Islamic theocracy in our faces. The obama-trons just jump in line for more hope and change. Can it get any better than this?

    Now who's the idiot?

    "I’ll sign off on the Palestinian state (something that’s taken me a while to come around to) and I’ll sign off on the ’67 borders…"

    Appeasement of the Arab imperialist aggressor, in short. Why not? If it worked with the Sudeten-Germans, surely it's going to work with the Sudeten-Arabs.

    "…not for large settlements of right-wing extremists…"

    There are no settlements in Palestine except Arab settlements (Tulkarm, Bil'in, Umm el Fahm etc.). "Jewish settlement in Palestine" is a contradiction in terms, because the Jews are indigenous Palestinians. It'd be like saying "Dutch settlements in the Netherlands."
