(Not) Trusting Obama on Israel in Term 2

(Not) Trusting Obama on Israel in Term 2

From Seth Mandel:

When foreign policy “realists,” pseudo-realists, and leftists claim that the pro-Israel establishment is preventing an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, their argument fails to account for one aspect of recent Mideast history: During the administrations of American presidents seen as favoring Israel, the Jewish state’s leaders made serious offers for a final-status agreement.

So the argument that more “daylight” is needed between the U.S. and Israel is generally met with proper skepticism. So is the declaration that President Obama is just as pro-Israel as his predecessors, he’s just showing his friends a bit of tough love–heavy on the tough, light on the love.

From Yossi Klein Halevi:

Nor does Obama’s record in the Middle East more broadly reassure Israelis. Perhaps the worst moment of his presidency was turning his back on the Iranian anti-government demonstrators in 2009, who chanted “Obama, are you with us or with the regime?” Obama’s silence was a historic missed opportunity. So is his current inaction on Syria, Iran’s most important ally. There appears to be no strategic coherence in his Middle East policy. Why, for example, help bring down Qaddafi, as odious as he was, after he had abandoned his nuclear program and his support of terrorism—while allowing Assad a free hand?

From Adam Kredo:

“If you’re a non-Jew, as is the case of President Obama, and you’re in the progressive movement and meet progressive Jews who are ready to throw Israel under the bus, it can be hard for you to realize how pathological these people are, how out of the mainstream they are, how damaging they are even to non-Jews in their pursuit of moral perfectionism at any cost, including their own people,” explained Richard Landes, a historian and professor at Boston University….

“There are grave concerns that during his second term, when he no longer has to worry about mundane matters of electoral politics, that the real Barack Obama will come forward,” said the source. “Bibi Netanyahu better watch out.”

From me:

The threat of an Obama unrestrained by the need to be reelected is a theme I’ve hit on repeatedly with regard to Israel.  There is no doubt that but for the need to keep Jewish votes and money coming, Obama would have lowered the hammer on Israel even more than he has.  Obama will force his vision of a settlement on Israel in a second term.

After the RAFT of new Obamic LIES in just the last two days…

how would ANYBODY believe ANYTHING this guy says???

Jeebus…

More people may be focusing on the horror of a President Obama unfettered by reelection concerns. It should be a concern regarding every aspect of his presidency. We have, to this point, seen the damage Obama is doing to our country even while he recognizes he has his reelection to keep in mind. Once free of that burden his actions to destroy our once-great country will increase exponentially.

Professor J a second term? Please no, don’t even say that.

With the way that Obama has treated Netanyahu already I don’t have any hope there will be any civility towards Israel if God forbid there is a second term.

When Netanyhu came to the US just before Purim, he gave Obama a very appropriate and meaningful gift, a scroll of Scripture containing the book of Hadassah or Esther.

In the story of Queen Esther and Mordecai her uncle, the evil Persian official Haman plotted to destroy Mordechai and the Hebrew people, because they would not bow to him and worship false god/s of Persia.

At the end of the story, Haman was hanged on his own gallows. Moreover, the Children of Israel were warned and allowed to arm themselves against the attack plotted by Haman to destroy them and ended up winning a great victory.

This story has many parallels to Israel’s situation with Obama, Iran and the Middle East. The gift issued a warning to Obama, Iran and the Islamists.

“Obama’s silence was a historic missed opportunity. So is his current inaction on Syria, Iran’s most important ally. There appears to be no strategic coherence …”

Sure there is, Assume Obama is a tyrant who hates Israel.

Then look at a map and ask yourself if the surrounding countries are becoming more liberal or Islamist in nature.

Then, ask yourself is if Obama could possibly be a tyrant who hates America…

It’s too bad that Obama wasn’t hanging around Caroline Glick in Chicago.

“If you’re a non-Jew, as is the case of President Obama, and you’re in the progressive movement and meet progressive Jews who are ready to throw Israel under the bus, it can be hard for you to realize how pathological these people are, …”

I grew up with Jewish friends like this.

“There appears to be no strategic coherence in his Middle East policy.”

IMO Obama’s puppet masters have a clear plan built of many pieces that can be as elusive as putting together a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle that is a maze of seemingly unrelated colors but when complete becomes a clear picture.

Here is another piece:

    Or…”follow the money”. Watch where Obama puts treasure. That is where his heart is.

Is by-passing congress to give money to the Muslim Brotherhood an impeachable offense as the commenters at Breitbart claim?

As for the lame duck issue – I don’t think Obama thinks of 2012-16 as his last term in office. Marxists, Islamists, and ‘chosen ones’ do not give up power willingly or peaceably.

It is not coincidence that PM Netanyahu gave Obama the scroll of Esther for therein lies a warning:
Esther 4:14
For if you fail to speak up now, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from a different direction; but you and your father’s family will perish. Who knows whether you didn’t come into your royal position precisely for such a time as this.”
