The Truth Hurts


pic-bOriginally published by the Jerusalem Post

To hear it from the White House, and from Israel’s leftist media, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon is a major liability. As half the planet now knows, Ya’alon is harshly critical of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s persistent efforts to force Israel to surrender its land and ability to defend itself to the PLO.

In a private conversation that Ya’alon did not expect to be made public, he criticized Kerry’s so-called security plan that offers Israel advanced technology in exchange for PLO control over its eastern border. Ya’alon also rejected the notion that the PLO is interested in making peace. And he stated the inconvenient fact that PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas is only in power because Israel has security control over Judea and Samaria.

Ya’alon also said, again in a private conversation, that Kerry’s razor-sharp focus on Israel and the PLO owes to an “incomprehensible obsession,” and that by neurotically pushing for a deal that has no chance of being concluded or achieving peace, Kerry is exhibiting “messianic” character traits.

Ya’alon’s private statements about Kerry were no harsher than public statements that the Saudis have made regarding the Obama administration’s regional policies. Last November, journalist Jeffrey Goldberg interviewed Saudi Prince Alaweed bin Talal. According to Goldberg, the Saudi royal attacked US President Barack Obama “with a directness that would make Benjamin Netanyahu blush.”

Among other things, Alaweed said, “There’s no confidence in the Obama administration doing the right thing with Iran. We’re really concerned – Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Middle Eastern countries about this.”

Alaweed questioned Obama’s motives in negotiating with Iran, saying the president is “wounded,” and appeasing Iran in order to win back the support of Democratic lawmakers who oppose Obamacare. In his words, “Thirty-nine members of his own party in the House have already moved away from him on Obamacare. That’s scary for him.”

It is hard to think of harsher criticism than Alaweed’s. And yet, the administration had nothing to say about it. Neither he, nor his fellow Saudi prince Bandar Bin Sultan al-Saud, the Saudi intelligence chief who said last month that he is scaling back intelligence cooperation with the US, was personally attacked by the administration.

No umbrage was taken at their statements.

And again, their public statements were no less harsh than what Ya’alon said in a private conversation about Kerry.

Neither the Israeli people, nor the US’s traditional Sunni Arab allies support Obama’s policies in the region. They believe Obama’s policies are dangerous for them, and antithetical to US interests.

Indeed, Ya’alon’s assessments of the administration are not only in line with regional opinion, the vast majority of Israelis share his views.

According to a poll published last week by Makor Rishon, 80 percent of Israelis think that Kerry’s peace plan has no chance of bringing peace. Seventy-three percent oppose his security plan for the Jordan Valley. And 53% object to the entire premise of his talks – that Israel should surrender almost all of Judea and Samaria to the PLO.

Moreover, the average man on the Israeli street sees the destruction wreaked by the Obama administration’s policy throughout the Middle East, and he cannot figure out what Kerry wants with us.

Syria is a humanitarian and geopolitical nightmare with global implications.

Rather than do everything possible to strengthen moderate forces in Syria, like the Kurds, and cultivate, train and arm regime opponents who can fight both the Assad regime and al-Qaida rebels, Kerry has devoted himself to demanding that Israel release more Palestinian terrorist murderers from prison.

Rather than protect Lebanon from the predations of Iran and Syria to ensure its independence, Kerry is holding marathon meetings with Netanyahu to try to coerce him into helping the PLO build another Jew-free terrorist state in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

Rather than try to blunt the growing power of Hezbollah – Iran’s terrorist army – in Syria, the US’s policy is inviting Iran, the party most responsible for the war, to join the phony peacemakers club at Geneva.

As for the rest of the region, from Tunisia to Bahrain, from Egypt and Libya to Iraq, and Yemen, Kerry and the Obama administration as a whole are content to watch on the sidelines as al-Qaida reemerges as a significant force, and as Iran undermines stability in country after country.

Then of course, there is Iran itself, and its nuclear weapons program.

After the six-party nuclear deal with Iran was concluded on Monday, Iran’s leaders declared victory over the US. They boasted that the most dangerous components of their nuclear weapons program are unaffected by the deal they just concluded with the Americans. They laid a wreath on the grave of Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh, who masterminded the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut that killed 243 US servicemen. And they forced Lebanon’s Sunnis to accept a Hezbollah-dominated government.

For its part, the Obama administration continues to insist that the greatest threat to peace is the US Congress, because its members wish to pass an additional sanctions bill against Iran that would only come into force in a year if the Iranians do not abide by the agreement.

The only parties whose lot is improved by the Obama administration’s Middle East policies are Iran, the PLO and the Muslim Brotherhood. But none of them will praise those policies, because they all hold the US in contempt.

This is why the Palestinian leadership continues to incite against Israel and reject the Jewish state even as the US is acting as their surrogate in talks with Israel.

This is why the Iranians mock the US, even though the White House just cleared the way for Iran to develop nuclear weapons, and develop its economy and has allowed it to take over Iraq and Lebanon, and defend its puppet regime in Syria.

This is why the Muslim Brotherhood condemns the US even as the Obama administration upended the US alliance with Egypt in order to support the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Obama administration has responded to these demonstrations of contempt and bad faith with extreme reticence. Either it issues written, general condemnations, or it claims, as in the case of Palestinian incitement, that it doesn’t believe it is productive to publicly criticize the Palestinians.

Given this behavior, the Obama administration’s response to Yediot Aharonot’s publication of Ya’alon’s private statements can be fairly describe as apoplectic. It was also mean-spirited.

Shortly after Yediot published his private remarks, the administration launched a full-bore public attack on Ya’alon, and by implication, the government. As White House spokesman Jay Carney put it, “The remarks of the Israeli defense minister, if accurate, are offensive and inappropriate, especially in light of everything that the United States is doing to support Israel’s security needs.”

In other words, the Obama administration just accused Israel of ingratitude.

But there is nothing ungrateful about Israel’s treatment of the US.

Americans are getting the same message from allies throughout the Middle East. Under Obama, America’s regional policies are so counterproductive that the US has come to be seen as the foreign policy equivalent of a drunk driver.

As the US’s strongest ally, and also as a country that has depended for decades on US support, Israel is a passenger in the back seat of the car. On the one hand, we are happy for the ride. On the other hand, the administration’s driving is endangering our survival.

It is only because our leaders are grateful to the US for its support that the government is going along with Kerry’s ridiculous peace-processing.

More important, what is gratitude, exactly? Is it shutting up and watching your closest friend drive both of you over a cliff? Of course not.

To be a good ally – and a grateful one – requires you to warn your ally when his actions are ill-advised and dangerous. And that is precisely what Israel has done. Israel’s behavior is the definition of proper behavior.

Aside from being dead wrong, the anti-Semitic undertones of the administration’s castigation of the Jewish state as ungrateful are hard to miss.

State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki lashed out at Ya’alon saying, “Secretary Kerry and his team, including General John Allen, have been working day and night to try and promote a secure peace for Israel, because of the secretary’s deep concern for Israel’s future.”

These words, and nearly identical ones intoned by Carney, play into the anti-Jewish stereotype according to which Jews are quarrelsome but hapless wretches.

The flipside of this stereotype is the all-powerful Jewish conspiracy that manipulates non-Jews into doing its dirty work. That slur reverberated strongly in the administration’s condemnations of Netanyahu and US Jewish groups for advocating the passage of additional sanctions against Iran.

In both cases, the White House’s message is the same. Unlike other groups critical of US policies, Israel and supporters of the Jewish state have no right to speak.

Presumably the administration’s resort to these anti-Jewish tropes is inadvertent, but the fact that they have been used repeatedly is deeply disconcerting, and bespeaks, at a minimum, alarming insensitivity.

Under tremendous pressure from the administration, Ya’alon apologized for his leaked remarks and Netanyahu took to the Knesset podium to praise Israel’s ties to the US and thank the US for its support for Israel.

But this was not enough for the Obama administration.

They want Netanyahu disavow Ya’alon’s thoughts and withdraw the defense minister from the negotiations.

According to AFP, a senior State Department official said, “We expect the prime minister to put this right by expressing publicly his disagreement with the statements against Secretary Kerry, the negotiations with the Palestinians and Kerry’s commitment to Israel’s security.”

For his part, Kerry said he will only speak to Israeli leaders who agree with him. In his words, “I will work with the willing participants who are committed to peace and to this process.”

In other words, the Obama administration is using Ya’alon’s private remarks, leaked by an unidentified source to a newspaper with an anti-Netanyahu editorial agenda, as a means to neutralize the most powerful voice opposing Kerry’s obsessive, messianic behavior in the Israeli government. They want to use American umbrage at the tone of Ya’alon’s private statements to upend Israeli policy and force Israel to embrace the substance of the Obama administration’s delusional and destructive actions. And to advance this goal, they are using anti-Semitic signals to castigate Israel and deny it the right to speak on its own behalf.

Israelis love America. And for that reason, it is compelled to do what anyone strapped into the back seat of a car driven by a drunk would do: try to convince him to stop driving. As a grateful ally of the United States, Israel should publicly tell the Obama administration that what Ya’alon said in private is the truth.

And yes, sometimes the truth hurts.

    “strengthen moderate forces in Syria, like the Kurds, and cultivate, train and arm regime opponents who can fight both the Assad regime and al-Qaida rebels”

    Zero chance of that ever happening.

    • JoJoJams

      The Kurds should have been given their own country when the western powers divvied up the remains of the Ottoman empire.
      However, with the current administration and it’s affinity for strengthening those who avow themselves to be our enemies, and the snubbing – often in direct and dramatic ways – of our allies, you just may be right….

      • defcon 4

        Yeah a Kurdish islamic state will be so much more tolerant, fun loving and free than any other islamic state.

        • Heval Azad

          Dumbass… you don’t know what a Kurd is, do you ?

          • Gee

            The Kurds were used by the Ottoman Empire to murder 2 million Armenians. They too have a lot of issues

          • Heval Azad

            Yeah… Kurds (a minority) killed Armenians (but alévi kurds took no part in it, they hid them and helped them out, that’s why they were targeted afterwards…)… Turks murdered Armenians too… i’m really sorry for that.. but Germans gassed millions of jews… as you said Kurds were used.. so no point in using this against us all the time.. no point in punishing and comparing the kurds of today to those in the past.. kurds are one of the most oppressed people in the world.. therefore I believe they know more about Democracy and are more civilized than the Turks or the Arabs…
            Again i’m truly sorry.. my ancestors were also massacred.

          • defcon 4

            Kurds are muslimes, I don’t give a FFF what happens to them.

          • Heval Azad

            Not all Kurds are Muslims… and not all Muslims are terrorists… not all Christians, Jews and etc, are peace lovers.. but we are all human.

          • defcon 4

            FO, muslimes subscribe to an intolerant ideology of death. They’re no better than nazis.

            Heval Azad: Welcome to crazyland. They dont know what a kurd is, and they dont care, they only hate people of a certain religious culture. Ra Ra, etc.

            I wonder what christians like these would do in the situation of the good samaritan.

            I’ve heard their were Jewish Kurds, but they have ALL made Aliyah, I don’t have to wonder why either slave of allah.

          Arm up the Kurds and let them go to town on the arabs, turks and Iranians. Then sit back with cocktails and watch them kill each other to their little jihadist hearts content, just make sure we keep out refugees from the area.

  • LibertarianToo

    I laughed out loud when I read the reported comments of Defense Minister Ya’alon, especially the part about hoping that Kerry ‘wins the Nobel peace prize so he’ll leave us alone’ or words to that effect. I hope the Israelis understand that the Obama administration does not speak for America. Mr. Obama can’t seem to stop inviting members of the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House -maybe that’s where he refines his anti-semitic attitudes. We all just have to wait him out. Remember also that John Kerry is the man who believes John Edwards was the person best suited to be a heartbeat from the presidency. The current administration are clowns -dangerous clowns, but clowns nevertheless.

    • Izzy

      We understand perfectly that he does not speak for you, but would prefer that he not serve his full term in office.

      • Gee

        I 2nd that thought.

        Odumba has been out to harm Israel from the beginning. If we listen to Kerry we will not survive.

      • Bamaguje

        You think Biden would be any better?

          Remove Them ALL! Problem Solved!!

  • The Facts

    This is a pretty seditious article from an American standpoint. It seems like a veiled death threat, like those that appear in the Old Testament. America is destroying itself because it won’t do Ms. Glick’s bidding? Kerry is a “messianic” because he doesn’t waver in a particular point of negotiation? This makes Israel look nothing but stubborn, ungrateful, and even menacing. This business about talking about our destruction warrants an investigation.

    • Susan

      Seditious? Seditious? No, the author is the voice of wisdom. Kerry is oblivious to reality, Yes, this is serious. America really is destroying itself, starting with the election of BHO (who wasn’t eligible for the job anyway, not that the DNC cares about the law, about merit, etc). And speaking of merit John Kerry was in the senate for a long time, but is he qualified for the job of Sec. of State? Is he loyal to America? hardly.

    • oneteedoffpatriot

      Since you’re so worried about America’s destruction, I guess you want to start investigating your little tin pot belly dictator Kim Jung Obama.

    • Dirka Dirka Dirka

      America is destroying itself because of Americans like you and will save itself accordingly.

    • Doger Trader

      well- looking at obama-kerry fruits of forigen policy it is hard to think something else. more than that, israelis face terrifying fact- our best ally has turned against us and doing its best to undermine our existence.
      worse than that- it is doing that using the rhetoric of same old friends we use to be. obama is dedicated to destroy the only state in the ME where amarican flags r not being burned.
      http://www.israellycool.com/2014/01/16/who-loves-you-america/

      • Gee

        Israel has not turned on America, nor is doing anything to undermine anything about America.

        We really really like America and Americans. Honest we do. We don’t like your Department of State nor a lot of your leaders. But we know the difference.

        What you call undermining America – is not willing to die while you appease our enemies at our expense. We refuse to die for Kerry’s opportunity to a Nobel Prize. We warned America that Iran was lying and cheating because we know the facts. That is not undermining you either.

        • BagLady

          Excuse me for commenting, but sometimes you behave less like a close ally and more like the 51st star. A little more distance and fewer attempts to control American policy would be more seemly.

          • defcon 4

            “control American policy”? Thinly veiled antisemitic delusions don’t become you.

          • Gee

            Control American policy? Since when? The only time we comment is when American policy throws us under the bus.

            Yes we will say something when your policies aimed to have us killed to advance some American leader’s policies – don’t like that TFB!

    • justquitnow

      They are just writing cover for Israel….as always. FPM and the Freedom Center get tons of money from the jewish lobby.

      • defcon 4

        Yeah, it’s always the Jews isn’it?

      • Painted Horse

        Who is the jewish lobby again?

        • justquitnow

          The Israel lobby (at times called the Zionist lobby or sometimes the Jewish lobby) is the diverse coalition of those who, as individuals and as groups, seek to influence the foreign policy of the United States in support of Zionism, Israel or the specific policies of its government.[1] The lobby consists of Jewish-American secular and religious groups. The most famous and visible group within the Israel lobby is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). AIPAC and other groups within the Israel lobby influence American public policy in a variety of ways such as through education, responding to criticism of Israel, and putting forth arguments in support of Israel. The Israel lobby is known for its success in encouraging U.S. lawmakers to support the policies that it supports, such as the right for Israel to exist, and vetoing the recognition of Palestine.

          I wasn’t making some conspiracy theory statement…I was pointing to these groups and saying…them. If the freedom center, FPM or Horowitz have never received money from an organization run of by or for the Jewish people, then I apologize for besmirching his reputation in this ugly manner?

            That’s called sarcasm you idiot…of course FPM gets money from the “jewish lobby”…that’s a pretty broad term…

            This site is the absolute dead end alley of thought. Articles written about how white people get a bad wrap for slavery but using the word jew is racist. Just incredible. If you can’t stomach the facts about where your media comes from and why, that is not my problem.

            If you think this site is a balanced look at anything having to do with Israel then you are the delusional one. Most of the time it’s over-the-top hysteronics and fear which is bad for America regardless of the source.

            Any other minority groups in America that you think should have equal rights? There is a term for that it is called RACISM and because it is only directed at Jews that is also known as ANTI-SEMITISM. You are an anti-Semite

  • Texas Patriot

    Unfortunately, it is now obvious to the whole world that Obama’s strategy for the middle east was blown out of the water on September 12, 2012. With the massacre of our diplomats at Benghazi and the simultaneous worldwide chants of “Obama, Obama, We’re All Osama”, there can no longer be any rational hope of peace with Islamic radicals. But old ideas die hard, and it would appear that Obama is incapable of adapting to the new reality of the middle east today.

    However, I think it would be a mistake to characterize Kerry as the prime mover and scapegoat in this process. Kerry works for Obama, so he dances to Obama’s tune, and at this point Obama is like a gyroscope that has been knocked off center and is now spinning around wildly all over the board in a frantic effort to stabilize a situation that is now completely out of control. If another American embassy is overrun by Islamic jihadists because the administration fails to prepare or fails to act, it is highly likely that Obama will be forced to resign or face impeachment. The bottom line is that if Obama is unwilling or unable to discharge his constitutional duty to defend our embassies and protect the lives of our embassy personnel, he should step down.

    For Israel, it must seem like riding in a carload of drunks. To be sure, the President and the Secretary of State seem addicted to the discredited formulas and empty rhetoric of the past and the impossible dream that Israel and the Palestinians can live side by side in peace, and are now mindlessly looping talking points that ceased to make sense a long time ago. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid.

    • justquitnow

      So now it was a massacre? Wow…I can only imagine how pissed you were about the embassy attacks and deaths of foreign diplomates under Bush…your cries for impeachment must have been deafening.

      • Texas Patriot

        I don’t think Obama should be impeached over Benghazi. What I’ve said is that if it happens again, he should step down or face he likelihood of impeachment. At this point, all bets are off for peace with Islamic radicals anywhere in the world, and we should regard ourselves as being in a state of war with them.

        In fact, they have been in a state of war with the West at least since the Munich Olympics of 1972, but we haven’t recognized it. All that changed on September12, 2012 with the assassination of our diplomats at Benghazi and the worldwide Muslim chants of “Obama, Obama, We’re All Osama.” We now have fair notice of what we’re up against, and if Obama fails to prepare for it or fails to defend against it, he should step down or be removed from office.

        Personally, I like Obama, but he has dropped the ball big time, and he’s run out of excuses.

        • justquitnow

          Huh? So are all the attacks that occurred under Bush just unfortunate tragedies but this one attack in Libya is a failure by Obama unparalleled in American history?

          • Texas Patriot

            They are all unfortunate tragedies. But Benghazi was a wake up call. There is no room for pretending at this point.

          • justquitnow

            Really….9/11 wasn’t a wake up call? All the incidents under Bush…none of those deaths mattered…just this attack, just these deaths. Gotcha.

          • Texas Patriot

            JQN: “Really….9/11 wasn’t a wake up call?”

            Obviously not. As of the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Islam was regarded by most Americans and even the president of the United States as a “religion of peace” which had been hijacked by a group of radicals under the leadership of Osama bin Ladin. September 11, 2012, changed all that. With the assassination of our diplomats in Benghazi and the simultaneous worldwide chants of “Obama, Obama, We’re All Osama”, there is no longer any rational basis for pretending that Islam is a religion of peace. The truth of the matter is that not even Muslims think that.

    “…53% object to the entire premise of his talks – that Israel should surrender almost all of Judea and Samaria to the PLO.” Only 53%? Has the other 47% not noticed that the land for peace deals have never resulted in peace? Peace as in absence of islamic attacks against Israel.

    President Barack Hussein Obama is anti-Israel and possibly anti-semitic. For 20 years he was a member of the church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright in Chicago, anti-semitic as well as anti-white. He is also associated with the Muslim Brotherhood: (1) his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had as her closest aide, Huma Abedin, whose family are Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Sisterhood; (2) his half-brother from Kenya is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. See Michelle Bachmann on how the Muslim Brotherhood has gotten into the U.S. government.
    Note also how President Obama snubbed Prime Minister Netanyahu when he visited Washington.
    Secretary of State John Kerry is just doing Obama’s bidding, as is the State Department. Ya’alon’s comments were right. Obama’s forcing Israel to release Arab terrorists is par for the course. And, of course, his not opposing Iran’s development of nuclear weapons – which are to be used against Israel – while he claims to have Israel’s “back” is par for the course.

    The socialist/islamophile Obama administration lies in wait for any Israeli government official to say the wrong thing as an excuse for Obama pulling the rug out from under Israel. Obama would like to remedy the civil war between Shiites and Sunnis so there would be a united Islam to get rid of Israel and further Islamist advance on the West. If it wasn’t Yaalon it would be somebody else. The Obamanoids are determined to destroy Israel to impress their Saudi paymasters. They like to be even handed and suck up to the Iranians too. All Israel can do is try to hold out till 2016 and rely on its own resources. Luckily the Muslim hordes are determined to remain divided and incompetent, in their current condition of being at each other’s throats they shouldn’t be too hard to keep at bay. Ther may be some temporary relief in November 2014 if the Democrats lose the US Senate if the Republicans scrape up enough courage to rein in Obama. It might help if Israel should be seen to care a bit about the plight of their Christian neighbors.

      We did and the United States condemned us for that, remember Lebanon?

      The Christians in Arab countries hate us just as much as the Muslims. The Coptic Church was very supportive of the Egyptian government ethnically cleansing all the Jews.

        Do you have any proof that the leaders of the Coptic Church supported the ethnic cleansing of Jews by muslimes from Egypt?

    Another emotional outburst by Ms Glick. I prefer to think (hope) it is just another undulation in the never-ending Israel/Iran saga and will die down for another ten years or so. Sanctions? Pah. Nothing was ever gained by sanctions except to weaken the enemy prior to the attack.

    Wrong, when you are in the car with a drunk driver and repeatedly keep getting into the car with same driver, you do not try to convince him to stop driving, you jump out and refuse to ever get in again.
    America needs to be reminded that Israel was here long before them. They have had many countries who have tried to destroy them, yet they exist today and all their enemies are only to be found in history books.
    Obama and Kerry it is plain to see do not like Israel, they are not friends and Israel are considered more a nuisance to be gotten rid of rather than an ally.
    Wake up Israel, you cannot bargain with these people who only want your destruction
