Obama's War On Israel

But those that tell lies, that seek my soul to destroy it,they shall go into the nethermost parts of the earth; they shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes -Psalm 63.

The mask has come off...if indeed it was ever on.

For those of us who were always aware of whom Barack Obama really is and whom his mentors were and are, this is hardly a surprise that Obama would seek an opportunity to start a war of words with our ally Israel.

It is a war largely built on lies.

The pretext was a supposed 'insult' by Israel over what amounted to a zoning decision to OK building 1600 new homes in Jerusalem while Vice President Biden was on a state visit there.

Biden's ostensible mission in traveling to Israel was to talk the Israelis into playing ball and warn them that they had better not do anything about the genocidal maniacs in Iran, who threaten to annihilate the Jewish State just about every other day and continue to advance steadily towards possessing the means to do it.

Meanwhile of course, the West is doing absolutely nothing about it except demanding that Israel sit quietly and not defend herself.

In the meeting, it was leaked that Biden supposedly told the Israelis that General Petraeus, commander of CENTCOM had made the implausible link between Israel building homes for Jews and endangering US troops.In other words, the vice president told the Israelis that any decision about building that affects 'Palestinian rights' in East Jerusalem affects personal safety of American troops.

"This is starting to get dangerous for us," Biden reportedly told Netanyahu. "What you're doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace."

As if stopping Israel from building a few homes in its sovereign capital ( something they specifically said they were never going to halt anyway) is going to stop the Taliban from killing Americans in AfPak, cause al-Qaeda to close up shop,Hezbollah to disarm or the Iranians to end their quest for nukes!

When this first broke, I doubted Petraeus said anything of the kind, simply because he's not a stupid man. And as it turns out, I was right.

As a matter of fact, Joe Biden didn't even say it

Only an idiot deficient in critical thinking or a deliberate liar would would come up with this kind of linkage. And with that, allow me to introduce you to Mark Perry, an ex-adviser to Yasir Arafat who put this out to wide circulation in Foreign Policy....who of course mentioned nothing in the piece about Perry's old boss and have yet to issue a retraction.

Yes, just another piece of successful pro-Arab disinformation, and one seized on as proof by 'anti-Zionists' that Obama's tactics towards Israel are entirely justified.This one is being repeated ad nauseum as one looks at the sort of comments that news articles and blog pieces on the subject attract from the sort of creatures dwelling underneath various rocks in cyberspace.

As for Biden, once he found out about the homes to be built in Jerusalem,he essentially threw a tantrum, holding up a state dinner in Israel for ninety minutes and then issuing a statement harshly 'condemning' the planned housing in language more suited to an enemy than an ally.

Netanyahu, in an effort to keep things civil issued an apology, at which point Biden declared himself mollified. But the Obama White House had other plans.

It started with Obama unleashing Hillary Clinton to scream at Netanyahu over the phone for forty five minutes, and continued with White House adviser David Axelrod ranting on the Sunday shows about how this was a 'deliberate insult' by Israel.

You might remember that it was Hillary Clinton who praised Netanyahu's earlier agreement to a building freeze that explicitly did not include Jerusalem as an unprecedented concession.'

Not that any of that matters. At this point, the White House is keeping the pot boiling by presenting what amounts to an ultimatum to Israel, demanding a total freeze on building in East Jerusalem, the mass release of Palestinians convicted of terrorism in Israeli courts and the cancellation of the proposed housing project in Ramat Shlomo as 'proof of Israel's peace commitment.'

Along with Obama's demands that Israel forbear seeking to protect it's religious shrines as part of its heritage, these are deliberately calculated as demands no Israeli government could fulfill and still stay in power. The Israelis have held the position that Jerusalem is Israel's indivisible capitol for over forty years, and there's no support in Israel for crossing that particular red line. And for Netanyahu to overrule a local zoning board is about as plausible as Obama stopping a housing development in Fairfax County, Virginia.

Like the Obama Administration's earlier unilateral trashing of the agreement under which Israel signed on to the Road Map and its de facto arms embargo on Israel, this will once again be taken by the Israelis as proof that the current regime in the White House is not to be trusted one iota. And that realization is by no means limited to Israel.

Barack Hussein Obama's main foreign policy goal is to ingratiate America with the Muslim world, no matter what that entails. And part of that involves destroying America's relationship with Israel.

The day after Biden left, the 'Palestinian Authority' held a ceremony in Ramallah to rename the main public square in honor of Dalal Mughrabi, the woman who in 1978 helped carry out a deadly terrorist attack that that left 38 Israeli civilians dead, 13 of them children as well as several Americans. Mahmoud Abbas was present, and he and his Fatah henchmen made speeches honoring Mughrabi.

That's something the White House didn't see fit to condemn.

please helps me write more gooder!

I still think the Jews of America are still deaf and dumb except for a few like us freedom fighter. But then like you I actually listened to what Obama said, read his books and saw who his friends were. I am not surprised except that I thought it would happen alot sooner than it did.Also not surprised by the spineless Jewish democrats in Congress a snively bunch of kapos if there ever were.
Hope Bibi stays strong. Heard he actually did in front of the knesset today.

Freedom Fighter said...

Well, not all the Dems in Congress are spineless..Nita Lowey and Anthony Weiner have spoken out, and perhaps a few others I haven't heard about.

But yeah, a lot of Jews have 'leftism' for their actual religion and that's where their allegiance lies.Sad.

Thank G-d for Christians like Sarah Palin and Pastor John Hagee among many others.

I think Bibi actually will stay strong. There's no placating Zero, so he doesn't have much choice.

And this may actually be a blessing in disguise...more on that later.

This is not the first time Petraeus has politicized his role as a general. He virtually endorsed Obama in the last election, but stopped short of actually endorsing him.

Freedom Fighter said...

Hi M!

Considering that General Petraeus is a Republican, I certainly never heard of him even coming close to endorsing Obama..especially given Obama's treatment of him as a senator on Capitol Hill. Do you have further info on this?

I also don't consider that this is an example of 'politicizing'.

If you read the link I provided on what he actually said when he testified before Congress, he merely stated the obvious, that a lot of Muslims resent America's support for Israel. He never said that our support for Israel was endangering US troops or anything close to it.That's a lie that came from Mark Perry's piece in FP.


yzernik said...

He endorsed the idea of "talking to your enemies", which was a major plank of Obama's platform. I remember it gave Obama a pretty big boost at the time, less than a month before the election.

Freedom Fighter said...

Hi M,
Thanks for the link.

You have to keep in mind that this came from the pen of uberlefty Fred Kaplan...and IMO this is pretty far from an 'endorsement' of Zero, although I could see where lefties desperate for some kind of foreign policy cred for Obama would seize on it.

In fact, it's a pretty major spin job on Kaplan's part.


Freedom Fighter said...

Oh, and let's also remember..Zero pretty much had this won by October. McCain's people ran one of the most inept and silly campaigns in modern times.

If this is starting to get dangerous for us as Biden suggests, then it appears the best course of action for us would be to get all of our troops out of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan and redeploy them to defensible positions in America. This would also limit some of the friction between us and Islamic countries. After all, we would no longer be in their countries.

Actually I think it is coming to this point any way. We can't afford it and we under a virtual siege from the south of our borders. At some point, I would expect Americans to fight vigorously for their country. Those troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere in the Middle East are needed here and we can't really afford the deployment any way.

Of course when we withdraw from the Middle East, this means no more foreign aid for countries like Egypt. It means no more aid for Saudi Arabia. Also, it means when Iran or some other nation or terrorist entity attacks Israel the Americans will not act to restrain Israel.

After America's withdrawl one of three things will happen. 1.)After the next Arab attack on Israel the Arabs will come to the realization that they are facing a situation where America is not acting as a restraining arm against Israel and they will further realize that they are facing complete and utter annialation for their actions. When this happens they sue for peace. Bottom line: we can't have peace in the Middle East because Israel has never been allowed to fully defeat its enemies. 2.)The Arabs and the Iranians don't come to their senses and are utterly defeated. 3.)Russia, China, or both get involved on the side of the Arabs. This is probably the biggest risk for Israel. The risk from Russia is especially acute. Having to face Russia the most powerful military on the planet or China the second most powerful is not a pleasent thought. The worn down American forces don't pose a significant threat to Israel. A better led, technologically superior, and generally smarter Israeli forces would easily defeat the Americans. I'm sure American military planners are aware of this and hopefully will be advising the appropiate leaders accordingly.

Finally, defeating Russia on the battlefield will probably require something along the lines of parting the Red Sea or the collapse of the walls of Jerico. There is precendent of God intervening on behalf of His people in this manner. It may be needed again. Russia is poised to become a world dominating colosus. Right now I don't see anyone who can stop them and they don't particularly like Israel that much.

B.Poster said...

Russia does not particularly like America very much either. Since the US military is no match for a better led, better trained, technologically superior, and generally more motivated Russian force nor does America have the financial capacity with its massive national debt and struggling ecomony to engage in the kind of massive military build up or the military upgrades that would be necessary to challenge Russia, America's best chance and perhaps only chance for survival will probably be to negotiate some type of deal with the Russians that acknowledges this reality. A simillar type of deal will probably be needed with China as well.

Also, once the troops are redeployed to defensible positions along the borders, I would expect morale among the troops to increase substantially. After all, they will be doing what most of them signed on to do. That is to defend America. This should help troop retention and recruitment as well.
