Obama’s Mirage in Israel

Larry Greenfield is fellow in American studies at the Claremont Institute and Senior Fellow of the American Freedom Alliance.


Before clicking Like of President Barack Hussein Obama, who seeks a public relations benefit on the eve of Holy Week and Passover, Israel and its supporters might consider how much Obama has UnLiked them to date.

Obama’s background, worldview, and policies make him no friend of the Jewish state.

Obama’s boyhood in Indonesia brought him to Islam, the religion of his controversial father, step-father, and half-brothers in Kenya, and he retains warm feelings toward the Muslim faith.  Obama has fantasized wrongly that the American Founding Fathers read the Koran in sympathy, rather than for clues, during our military wars against the Mohammedian Barbary Pirates, who rejected peace entreaties from the infidel.

Americans proudly affirm religious pluralism, and admire Muslim reformers and moderates, but most insist on truth telling about the third Jihad, violent assaults on Americans at Benghazi, Al Qaeda’s resurgence, and homegrown Islamic terrorism at Fort Hood and elsewhere.

Obama has been in denial about all of this, and about the brutality of Sharia governance, the Islamic culture of oppression of women through honor killings and female genital mutilation, and the continuing Muslim assaults on Christians throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa.

Mr. Obama has not led on human rights, failing to act against Arab torture and slavery, or against the use of child soldiers. Dissidents desperate for moral clarity from the White House, in 2009, chanted in Tehran: “Obama, Obama, are you with us our our dictators?”  Neda died, Obama denied.

So, while most Americans cherish Israel as a free, pluralistic, dynamic, and noble moral and strategic ally, Obama asserts a neutrality between the threatened Jewish state and those who reject the “Judaization” of Israel, and who fight an unrelenting war of terrorism, economic sanctions, and public abuse against the “Zionist”/“Apartheid” state.

From where does this mindset arise?

Obama received ideological training as a youth in Hawaii from radical communist, Frank Marshall Davis, who detested Western colonialism. Obama inhaled a virulent anti-Americanism that led him to attend Socialist conferences as a college student, and to seek out academic mentors like the late Orientalist Edward Said and the radical Rashid Khalidi, two impassioned Middle East specialists hostile to the Jewish state.

As a community organizer, Obama served on the Board of the Woods Fund of Chicago, which made large grants to Khalidi’s anti-Israel Arab American Action Network.

Absorbing years of anti-Israel hate speech from his spiritual mentor, Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Obama deepened his family involvement with Wright’s Church, and donated personal financial support. For over 20 years, Obama was close to one of the leading anti-Semites in the United States, naming him to the African American Religious Leadership Committee, before public outcry caused Obama to cut him loose from his Presidential campaign.

Earlier in his political career, Obama was close to another radical friend, Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the Electronic Intifidah, with whom Obama castigated Israel’s successful anti-terror security fence as “a wall dividing the peoples.”

Although Palestinian leadership for years encouraged and rewarded terrorists who butchered families, and blew up buses full of old women, discos full of young people, and Passover Seders that included American tourists, candidate for President Barack Obama counseled pro-Palestinian Abunimah that  “I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race. I’m hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.”

During his campaign for President, in 2008, Obama publicly picked a fight with Israel’s center-right Likud political party, then out of power, but known for making past painful territorial compromises such as withdrawal of Israeli authority over the Sinai and Gaza.

Rarely do American politicians pick sides in the internal party politics of allies, but President Obama has been regularly hostile to and dismissive of Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, a leader robustly applauded across the American political spectrum by both the U.S. Congress and citizenry.

Agreeing with French President Sarkozy’s nastiness towards the Israeli leader, President Obama famously said: “I have to deal with him every day.”

Initial Obama foreign policy made the classic mistake of linking the Palestinian-Israeli dispute to larger U.S. foreign policy interests in the Middle East.  By focusing on Israeli “settlements,” including second story apartment building in areas of Jerusalem that even many Palestinians never claimed as disputed territory, Obama essentially doomed possible peace negotiations. Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton then famously dressed down our ally over its own housing policies.

Once the Palestinians saw the Obama Administration beating up on Israel, they dismissed Netanyahu and re-continued educating their children toward hate, violence and traditional Palestinian irredentism.

Early in his first term, Obama visited Egypt, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, offering effusive praise and bows.  The downgrading of U.S. special alliances and friendships with England, Poland, the Czech Republic, and the people of Honduras, who opposed a would be dictator; the clamoring for engagement with U.S. enemies; the unreciprocated re-setting of relations with Russia; all sent signals of an end to the long tradition of American resolve in standing with close allies.

Islamists, authoritarian allies, and friendly monarchies in the Middle East all noticed Obama’s weak foreign policy.  So did revolutionaries plotting their day in an Arab Spring.

In Cairo, Obama went so far as to draw parallels between Palestinian suffering and the genocide of the Jews of Europe. Obama abandoned centuries of American support for a restored Jewish sovereignty in their ancient homeland by adopting the Islamist narrative that the only reason for a modern Jewish state was recompense for the 20th century European Holocaust.

Note to Obama: Arab regimes were complicit in the Holocaust, and some state-run Arab media, madrassas, and mosques continue the Nazi campaign to this day.

Obama’s policy advisers have been a disaster for regional peace, security, and human rights.  They encouraged the overthrow of U.S. ally Muburak, resulting in instability on Israel’s border and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, who have moved Egypt from peace partner to enemy of Israel, destroyed the Egyptian economy, oppressed Coptic Christians, and challenged over 30 years of U.S. – Egyptian political-military alliance.

Obama officials have argued in favor of the burka, for bringing terrorists to trial in New York, and for a Grand Mosque to be built near Ground Zero, site of the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center.

The recently confirmed CIA director calls Jerusalem, Al Quds.  The new U.S. Defense Secretary opposed naming Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Council as terrorist groups, and claims U.S. foreign policy is dominated by the Jewish lobby. And the new Secretary of State continued a long history of foreign policy blunders by seeking engagement with Syria’s Assad, who has murdered tens of thousands of his own citizens.

The Obama Administration consistently shows respect for the United Nations, dominated by the Arab League and its third world allies, featuring selective demonization of Israel while ignoring human rights abuses by nations such as Sudan, Iran, North Korea, et al.  The Obama Administration pressured Israel to answer to the kangaroo court that is the U.N. Human Rights Council, and did not act to support Israel’s admission to an international conference on counter-terrorism.

All of this only encouraged Palestinian efforts toward seeking unilateral declaration of statehood, violating previous agreements with Israel.

Obama’s Middle East policy has been to lead from behind, or simply watch stability collapse in the region.  And, against Congressional will, to send unconditional monies to the Palestinians, massive amounts of monies and F-16s and Abrams tanks to the anti-American and anti-Israeli Morsi government in Egypt, and to sign off on the largest U.S. weapons sale ever to the Saudis.

The revolutionary Republic of Iran, the sworn enemy of the United States, funder of Hezbollah, and supporter of Hamas, combines eliminationist rhetoric toward Israel with a previously clandestine nuclear weapons programs.  Yet, Mr. Obama has repeatedly sought engagement and negotiation with this regime, and watered down and waived Congressional sanctions.

Responding to Israeli hopes for allied unity, Obama advisers have kept Israel at arms length and leaked Israeli cooperation with Azerbaijan, on Iran’s border.  The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff publicly announced that the U.S. would not be complicit in any Israeli pre-emptive strike on Iranian weapons of mass destruction facilities.

Iran therefore fears neither a credible threat of military force, nor U.S. support for Israeli decision-making, making a military confrontation more likely as red lines are approached.

Israel is a nation surrounded by 1.4 billion Muslims in 57 countries, and some 400 million Arabs in 22 states.  Israel is so small that it comprises half of one percent the land mass of the Middle East, with a mere .1% of global population.

But Israel has 8 borders to defend: Syria, collapsing into chaos and with potentially loose chemical weapons; Lebanon, home to Hezbollah which has a massive arsenal of delivery systems capable of reaching all of Israel’s homefront;  Jordan, nervously eyeing Arab revolution and Syrian refugees; the West Bank, source of terror; the Gaza strip, source of terror; the Red Sea;  the long Sinai Peninsula border with Egypt; and now Israel’s extended Mediterranean coastal energy assets off shore.

Israel has repeatedly made wildly imbalanced trades of committed terrorists for IDF soldiers, or even the dry bones of its dead warriors.  Yet Obama publicly criticized Israel as not taking bold measures for peace, and insisted that Israel negotiate without any preconditions, such as Palestinian renunciation of terrorism and recognition of Israel’s very right to exist as a Jewish state. The Obama administration has encouraged Palestinian radicalism by advocating that Israel return to indefensible pre-1967 (1949 Armistice) borders.

Insulting American supporters of Israel, Obama declared, “For eight years [i.e., during the Bush administration], there was no light between the United States and Israel, and nothing got accomplished.”  Obama suggested Israelis engage in serious self-reflection.

This lecture to a nation which has been repeatedly attacked, by multiple enemies who do not exactly follow humane rules of engagement, from a man with no executive experience, and no military background, and who called U.S. troops CORPSEMEN.  How about some serious humility of your own, Mr. President?

Obama’s political team oversaw a 2012 Democratic Party convention whose platform removed previous language in support of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital, against Hamas as a terror organization, and against Palestinian refugees right to return to Israel proper.

Obama’s Democratic Party has firmly abandoned the tradition of JFK, “Scoop” Jackson, and former Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman.

In Israel, Obama will not speak at the Knesset (Parliament), for fear of being challenged by articulate Israelis who know their own history, and who seek to defend a population that is stunned and bruised by Obama’s leftism.

Instead, Obama will visit a gathering of university students, and receive an award from his ideological comrade, Israeli President Peres, who is reciprocating his own recent honoring at the White House. This is a cleverly orchestrated dance for those who applaud the Nobel Prizes won, without peace, by Shimon Peres, Barack Obama, and Yasir Arafat.

Obama doesn’t like the real Israel or its real, re-elected leadership.  So he completely avoided visiting Israel during his first term.  His visit now invites honesty about the mirage of friendship he will proclaim.

  • rivkah f.

    Excellent. We just had elections here and have a new government — of the people in a democracy. Let the President address our democratically elected government at the Knesset. It is not only an insult. It sends the same message as the ill-conceived Cairo speech of 2009. He is going behind the elected parliament and "to the people", cherry-picked "students" and wants an Israeli-style Tahrir Square demonstration against our elected government & Knesset. And he will cause traffic jams and chaos in Jerusalem and riots and worse among the Palestinians. Obama, please stay in the U.S. and deal with the economy and North Korea. Those should be your priorities.

    • EarlyBird

      Too effing bad, Rivkah. Your creepy PM, Netanyahu, insulted our president by openly interfering with our recent elections and openly backing Romney, and going "over the head of the president" to Congress, to further attempt to tighten the grip on American Middle East policy.

      Your country's entire interaction with the US is an "insult."

      Bibi and Barack do not like each other. That shows some very good taste on behalf of President Obama.

      • defcon 4

        "Interfering with our recent elections"? What by offering an opinion? Of course for fascists (incl. the islamic kind) any opinion counter to theirs is interference, or criminal.

        • EarlyBird

          No, by actively campaigning for a candidate (Romney), which was what his little trip to Congress on the eve of the election was all about.

          • stern

            But it was quite okay for Obama to interfere in Israel's elections? With his snide, sickening little "leak" to the Atlantic? That doesn't bother you?

          • Drakken

            You missed the huge fact that your hero Obummer is an open MB supporter along with that snake advisor, where Romney at least made an attempt to be on Israels side, the same thing can't be said of your hero.

  • AnOrdinaryMan

    At the intersection of Jaffa Road and King George St., in Jerusalem, there's a building that was the scene of the August 9, 2001 Sbarro restaurant suicide bombing, by which 15 innocent Jews were killed. Obama should be escorted to that building, to spend an hour or two there, and answer questions about his Israel policy. He might not feel like giving any anti-Israel speech afterwards. By the way, excellent article.

    • EarlyBird

      Perhaps he should be thanked for being an important part of the Iron Dome project which protected Israel from the latest barrage of Hamas rockets?

      • dartson

        This project will also be used by the US military, since Israel will transfer the technology to the US in exchange for partially funding the project. So Obama did it for the US national interests as well (at least, I hope that he will not share the technology with his Muslim buddies around the world).

        • EarlyBird

          My point, Dartson, is that this is surely some proof that Obama is not some wicked enemy of Israel, or "waging a malicious war on the Jewish state."

          Understand that you are reading a Jewish supremacist hate speech site. This place is the Jewish-Israeli equivalent of an Aryan Nation site. It simply vomits up hateful slander incessantly, day after day, to confuse people.

          • gee59

            Except for the minor fact that Odumba CUT all funding for Iron Dome, the US Congress overturned his cuts and increased the spending over Odumba's objections.

            So giving the Racist-in-Chief any credit is way out of place.

            He also opposed all sanctions on Iran – again Congress over-ruled the President and now that racist takes credit for what he opposed

          • Drakken

            There ya go again, using libtard words like hate speech and supremist. You go ahead and live in that delusional world that thinks that your hero Obummer is a friend and ally of not just Israel but the rest of western Europe as well. Your absolute refusal to see facts over your precious feelings and wishful thinking would be amusing if it wasn't so dangerous.

        • Cylia

          More like stealing the technology since the pentagon decided to start from scratch. It is verboden to let Israel profit at the expense of the U.S. military. The rules of the game have changed.

      • defcon 4

        But TurdlyBird, Obama asked Israel to unilaterally return to the pre-1967 borders, you know, the indefensible ones.

        • EarlyBird

          Gee, like every single American president before him. But NO! Obama's an "Islamist!"

        • EarlyBird

          By the way, your neocon hero, W., went a lot further than Obama ever did. He managed to get Arial Sharon to send the IDF into the illegal settlements and haul out Orthodox Israeli settlers. Some how Bush isn't an Islamist, though every single foreign policy decision he ever made simply empowered Islamists and Israel's enemies.

    (Interview of Brezezinski by David Ignatius) America and the World , conversations on the future of American Foreign Policy by Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft

    Ignatius: Doesn't America have a special relationship with Israel, a special commitment to Israel's survival that means that the kind of evenhanded policy you're both talking about leaves Israel at a disadvantage?

    Brezezinski: Exuse me. I don't buy that at all. The notion that we have to prove our friendship to Israel by starving the people in Gaza I just find immoral in content, and not practical politically.

    • reader

      Good example of demagoguery: instead of answering the question, Zbig dismisses it and brings up a meaningless red herring.

      • EarlyBird

        How in the world is this not answering the question? The question is (and I'll add the sub-text):

        Ignatius: "Isn't it every American policy maker's job to fall all over themselves in unquestioning support of every action by Israel, for fear of being slimed as anti-Semitic?"

        Brezinski: "Yes, unfortunately US policy makers have been put in that position. However, the US is based on the appreciation of some pretty basic human rights, like not having masses of Palestinians starved to death by a cruel and unnecessarily tight Israeli blockade of Gaza. It's not going to hurt Israeli security by allowing food into Gaza, and ending what the Israelis gleefully call the 'Gaza Diet'."

        • reader

          That would be a different question, genius. Of course, demagoguery is the same: Gaza blockade did not starve anybody, because it never precluded any food or medical supplies to be delivered through. I know Zbig to be smart enough to know that Gaza inhibitants don't feed themselves by hunting with Kassam and Grad rockets for fish and snails. So, he is a demagogue. Are you? Or you're just an idiot?

          • EarlyBird

            Oh, I'm sorry, it's possible that nobody in Gaza actually fully starved "to death."

            Now go away.

          • reader

            I'm neither a troll, nor an idiot. You are.

          • Drakken

This statement was made on a low-rated cable news channel. The two co-host dopes, sitting next to Ziggy, just sat there and didn't say a word. One of those hosts, a female, who, unfortunately, looks just Ziggy, just smiled.

    Obama is disaster for our own country US, disaster for all our allies and first of all the most reliable and only ally in the ME Israel and …actually he is disaster for all Western civilization. He encourage their enemies Islamists who are proclaiming "Islam will dominate in the World". He is complicit of their invasion and conquering our country and all the world. Wake up conservatives!

  • Marty

    I just returned from Israel after speaking with both arabs and Jews. Neither community trusts obama. Israeli arabs are afraid they'll end up under the jurisdiction of the palestinian authority and live in the hellhole known as the west bank. Israeli Jews are concerned that the anti-semitic administration the president leads will insist on making them defenseless. The mayor of a Druse town in the Golan Heights stays awake at night worrying that the syrians will return.

    • EarlyBird

      "Insist on making them defenseless?" How exactly, by pulling out our $3+ billion dollars a year? Other than that, the US doesn't have much ability to make them defenseless.

      Poor, pitiful Israel is the region's super power, with a massive and excellent military and about 100 nuclear weapons. It's hardly going to be "defenseless," whether or not the US continues to be its lap dog.

      • defcon 4

        If Israel is the "region's super power" why is it subject to regular, sustained barrages of rockets and mortars from places like Lebanon and Gaza?

        • EarlyBird

          Uh, so…the fact that Israel has enemies means it's not a super power? Okay. I thought things like massive military might, economic might, a 100 missile nuclear arsenal and the ability to wipe out any neighbor kinda meant something.

      Very intersting, thanks for the information. We know Arabs who want to live in Israel because they are genuinely being helped with food and aid. They do not want to live in a Palestinian State under Sharia Law. The Jews have helped non-violent Arabs who just want to raise their families, and grow a business, they are now accustomed to living under the Israeli government, not a violent Arab State. People grow used to freedom…it is very catching and hard to replace! Perhaps part of the Muslim nations will wake up and recognize it….Hatred and violence breed poverty, dispair, and unhappiness. Obama is a divider, not a uniter…he has enabled worse dictators than Mubarak, or Qadaffi.

    There is an explaination for all Obamas' actions. He is not an American. The US Constitution was written the way it was to prevent this from happening – that is a President that shows allegiance to something other than the United States.While we grew up playing baseball and football he was in a madrassa on a prayer rug. While we recited the pledge of allegiance he was being mentored by Com-munists. While we worked hard at real jobs Obama was a community organizer learning how to scam , control and manipulate people. Everything about Obama is foreign and this explains his behavior.
    Obam is not a "natural born citizen" as required by the Constitution and should never have been able tor become President. Why was he never challenged over this by anyone in Congress ?

  • Bert

    This article is flawed because it tells only half the story. It takes two to tango. The missing part is Jewish moral rot which invites Obama and his ilk to take advantage. in 2008 3/4 of U.S. Jews voted for a racist anti-Semite with Islamic leanings over a decent alternative. In 2012, 2/3 of U.S. Jews escalated their insanity by re-electing this criminal in the face of his attacks on America and Israel. The Israeli government too is corrupt and afraid to tell the truth in their own defense. If Jewish leaders would finally stand up for Jewish rights they would find many gentiles willing to publicly stand with them. But why should gentiles support Jews who are too craven to even stand up for themselves.

    • Rev. Roy

      Bert says.."But why should gentiles support Jews who are too craven to even stand up for themselves".
      Rev. Roy says…Because the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobe commands it in Gen. 12;3, Gen. 27:29 and Numbers 24:9.
      Because the New (er) Testament commands it in Romans 15:27..
      Because the Christian Gentile world owes the Jewish people an enormous debt for preserving the Word of God and producing the lineage through which Messiah Jeshua could enter the world as the final "Sacrifice", the final "Lamb" whose blood was shed for the remission of sins, once and for all.
      There is your answer, Bert. And He is coming back soon to Judge the nations. Read Joel and call upon the only name that can save..Jeshua Hamashiach, Jesus the Messiah. He is about to do what the IDF cannot do.

      You should not mix the Israeli Jews with the US Jews (or Jews outside of Israel in general). The majority of Israeli Jews with American citizenship voted for Romney (and the support for Romney outnumbered the support for Obama in polls among the Israeli Jews in general). Anyway, do you really think the Jewish votes in US could make a difference between Obama and Romney even if all the US Jews voted for Romney?
      Re the Israeli government, it is doing its best to resist the pressure from Obama for more concessions, considering the circumstances (the government of a tiny country against the sole superpower in the world). Yes, it would have been easier for Israel if the majority of Americans (yes, that includes the 2/3 of US Jews) had demonstrated their support for the Jews by not electing Obama for the second term.

    • Omar Kahlid

      The Bible speaks plainly about the rot in Jewish society during these times. His correction is about to start being applied to us, (a direct tribe of Israel) as well as the State of Israel itself. As Obama turns away from Israel he loses our protections applied by God himself on our behalf. Watch, my friend. As a former muzlim I see clearly what is happening and pray all will come to follow Christ and his teachings.

    President Obama's perfidy is endless. He has now decided not to give Poland and Romania anti-missile defence against Putin's Russia, in deference to Putin.

Islamo-fascists kill each year 100,000 Christians in the world. Supporting Israel we support ourselves and our children future. Liberal/leftists Jews are not worse than Liberal/leftists Christians or Buddhists or…Leftists are leftists. Liberalism is mental disorder. 55% of Catholics voted for Obama, much more in absolute numbers than Jews. This country was built on Judeo-Christians values. Pilgrims named this country "New Israel". We must think about our survival. That is why I stand with Israel, our only ally in the ME and probably the most reliable ally in the world as well.

      "That is why I stand with Israel, our only ally in the ME and probably the most reliable ally in the world as well."

      Are you kidding?! How Britain, Canada, Australia, and yes, even France. They are at least on the first rung of "reliable allies." Israel has done nothing but take from us and manipulate our foreign policy on its behalf. We have poured billions of dollars every year into Israel to subsidize its security since '79. We have taken so much hatred for our reflexive support of every aspect of its regional policy. They have had spies steal secrets from the US (Pollard is just the most infamous), and they killed over 30 sailors on the USS Liberty.

      Allies? I don't think so. That implies real trust and friendship. We have mutually used each other, mostly Israel wagging the American dog.

        "We have poured billions of dollars every year into Israel to subsidize its security since '79."

        Actually, we have poured billions of dollars to subsidize Pentagon contractors, because Israel is obligated to either buy from them or refrain from selling its own military technology that may take away some market share. What we don't get any positive return on is the billions poured into muslim brotherhood.

        • EarlyBird

          Oh I see, so because American contractors benefit, that doesn't equal support for Israel, and it refutes everything I wrote.

          Gotcha.

          • reader

            I certainly prefer for American contractors to benefit over islamonazis. You?

            By the way, I don't ever hope to refute anything you wrote. 'The difference between genius and stupidity is that even genius has its limits." You don't, quite obviously.

        We've poured more billions to support islamofascist theocracies in Egypt and Pakistain — and Pakistain was harboring OBL, a factoid that doesn't seem to bother you in the slightest.

        • EarlyBird

          First of all, dolt, the subject here is Israel, not every other country we send money to. That you would assume I would be happy about supporting Pakistan shows what a simpleton you are.

          Secondly, Israel has been the #1 recipient of US foreign aid since Camp David Accords in '79. Egypt is second.

          And, idiot, Morsi is barely in control of Egypt, and it has not suddenly, over night become an "Islamofascist theocracy." Serious nations don't suddenly upend its security treaties, which is what the money is all about, the moment someone gets into power who we don't like.

        Your effing hero isn't standing to well with our European allies dumbazz.

  • EarlyBird

    Just when I thought I was unable to be shocked by the hate and lie factory which is Front Page Magazine, I read this load of garbage. Obama has wage a "malicious war on the Jewish state"? What?!

    Remember you fascist nutbags, Obama is anything but universally reviled in Israel.

    Of course, this article fails to mention that Obama will be receiving Israel's Presidential Medal of Distinction while he is visiting there. Strange, given his "malicious war on the Jewish state."

    Simply because Obama recognizes that he is the President of the United States, not the Prime Minister of Israel, simply because he recognizes Israel as an important ally but not the 51st state, he is some evil, enemy of Israel.

    Unf**king believeable! If you want people to really start hating Israel, keep up with this filth.

    Barry Soetoro isonly fit to be President of a small chain of coin laundromats. He and his crew likely never had a newspaper route or a sidewalk lemonade stand. They are all doctrinaire Communists with strong Islamist leanings. Even so, The G-d of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. Ivy League elitism
    is no threat to Him. By the way, I understand that the current State of Israel consists of only about 10% of the Land promised by G-d to Avraham and to his seed forever so watch out, U.N.

    • EarlyBird

      Go get 'em Moishe! Surely God wants you to continue to push Palestinians out further and further, maybe nibble at Egypt and Jordan and Lebanon because the Bible tells you so.

      Loved your statement, "Obama and pals only fit to be President of a small chain of coin Laundromats..Bravo!

    Israelis are quite aware that President Obama supports the most virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American Muslim Brotherhood. As Barry Rubin put it yesterday in his article Note to Obama:
    http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/The-Regio… “ The problem Israel has with the Obama administration is mainly about a US policy of helping radical Islamists who are anti-Semites and openly call for wiping Israel off the map to get into power."

    But even more puzzling is how is it possible that Americans are indifferent to their President supporting these ugly movements whose values are diametrically opposed to American values? Is it just ignorance, or has America changed so drastically?

    The Muslim Brotherhood. Is this what Americans stand for? http://www.madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2012/11/the-m

      America is at the mall and worried about the bloody Kardasians, they won't get uppity untill it directly effects them personally.

  • Asher

    The Back Ground checks should have been performed on Obama by the media to save Mankind. Israel has bent over backwards to have peace with its neighbors, giving Land for peace does not work. There is no way to satisfy a maniacle enemy that hates for no reason. Obama had better not ask Israel to stop building settlements either…he wants to stop the Jewish population, just like Hitler and the Anti-Christ.

  • Omar Kahlid

    Please, PLEASE, Tell me that I am incorrect in my understanding. I understand that 1 person has the power STOP all of this in it's tracks. No weapons or funds to our sworn enemies. No more plans forced on Americans to pay for. No more 20 million dollar vacations for the first farce.
    Does John Boehner not have the power to stop everything the Muzlim-in-Chief wants to do by refusing to fund it??
    To me, everything that is damning America today can be laid at the feet of John Boehner. Instead of playing the fiddle he cries for Obama to pat his head and tell him, "hey, you really are a nice guy".
    There seems to be 2 classes of politicians. Liberals and RHINO's that wish they could be liberals.
    May God forgive us for trading his blessings and protections away for abortion on demand and proclaiming God is wrong in that saying two men having anal sex is not equal to family and marriage.
    How could God have been so silly to want to protect the most innocent and condemn playing in waste matter.

    • Neils60

      Boehner is only a member of Congress, he's not the most powerful man in the world.

      • Omar Kahlid

        Congress provides the funds and can refuse tofund anything it desires to defund. I disagree. Boehner can stop it all, he is just on his knees to the muzlim monster.

  • Ghostwriter

    I don't think President Obama really cares about Israel. He feels that since many Americans are pro-Israel,he has to go there to appease them. And then we have the rank anti-semites like EarlyBird who believe that Israelis should be killed for the sake of his beloved Palestinians,the same ones who celebrated 9/11.
