Skip to comments.More Obama Doctrine in Action: Attempt to Undermine Tourism to Israel
Posted on 10/03/2009 10:19:44 AM PDT by Amerisrael
The Obama State Dept. wants to discourage American citizens from traveling to Jerusalem, Israel this week during "Sukkot", also known as the "Feast of Tabernacles."
This is the largest tourism event in Israel. According to this report in Jpost:
"In an unusual move, the US State Department on Friday called on American citizens to avoid Jerusalem's Old City during the week of Sukkot, warning citizens of increased violence, crime and heavy traffic."
Jews and Christians from all over the world have come to Jerusalem for decades to join in the Biblical celebrations without a problem.
It is an occasion in which many thousands of Jews and Christians also show their solidarity and support for Israel. Certainly this is well known by the Obama State Dept.
In this context the State Dept.'s "warning" to Americans to stay away from Jerusalem must be seen as an underhanded "snub".
The Obama Doctrine: Embolden America's enemies, diminish America, and undermine our allies.
A deliberate attempt by the Obama State Dept. to undermine tourism to Israel by scores of American citizens during Israel's largest tourism event.

Do they issue the same warnings for Chicago?
And one of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s most famous statements, yelled at a Jewish person who was handling major campaign functions for the Clintons back in Arkansas years ago was, “You f’ing J*w b*****d!”
Yup, this is in character.
Coerce Americans out of their cars, Coerce American Energy way from CLEAN COAL, Coerce American’s from patronizing Israel.
Do you all see the prevalent trend with 0bama Strategy?
The overall policy seems to be this: Do COERCIVE things that achieve unspoken goals, but NEVER-EVER admit that any such targeted ENDS are wanted or even being considered.
That means LIE early and often as to your real (stealth) intents and just DO those things that get the ENDS your passionately desire.
Don’t watch what 0bama ever says, watch who and how he’s COERCING people to achieve his ENDS.
Sigh, I see the coercion. The coercion (just try to watch TV - sitcoms or talk shows or news) that any who disagree are surely ‘haters’ and ‘extremists’.
B the Cat, I wish I could take credit for that! That was DuncanWaring, thanks, DW. It is an excellent point! It's like that everyday in Chicago, there ought to be warnings.
This is the power the Left has in it’s corporate pay-offs, board memberships and political threats.
They are going to do this to Americans over employer provided health care. Even if they fail to get their beloved centralized health care, they will start pushing employers into droping their health insurance coverage.

It won’t work; G-d is watching. Zechariah 14 predicts that the day will come when those who don’t keep the Feast of Tabernacles will not get any rain.
