Obama Prepares to Throw Israel Under the Bus
The Jerusalem Connection ^ | By: Melanie Phillips

Posted on 05/09/2009 1:40:21 PM PDT by Iam1ru1-2

As predicted here repeatedly Obama is attempting to throw Israel under the Islamist bus, and he’s getting American Jews to do his dirty work for him. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel reportedly told the Israel lobbying group AIPAC on Sunday that efforts to stop Iran hinged on peace talks with the Palestinians. General James Jones, National Security Adviser to Obama, reportedly told a European foreign minister a week ago that unlike the Bush administration, Obama will be ‘forceful’ with Israel. Ha’aretz reports:

Jones is quoted in the telegram as saying that the United States, European Union and moderate Arab states must redefine ‘a satisfactory endgame solution.’ The U.S. national security adviser did not mention Israel as party to these consultations.

Of course not. If you are going to throw a country under the bus, you don’t invite it to discuss the manner of its destruction with the assassins who are co-ordinating the crime. As I said here months ago, the appointment of Jones and the elevation of his post of National Security Adviser at the expense of the Secretary of State was all part of the strategy to centralise power in the hands of those who want to do Israel harm.

Yesterday Vice-President Joe Biden and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry turned the thumbscrews tighter, telling Israel to stop building more settlements, dismantle existing outposts and allow Palestinians freedom of movement.

This is all not only evil but exceptionally stupid. The idea that a Palestine state will help build a coalition against Iran is demonstrably absurd. The Arab states are beside themselves with anxiety about Iran. They want it to be attacked and its nuclear programme stopped. They are desperately fearful that the Obama administration might have decided that it can live with a nuclear Iran.

The idea that if a Palestine state comes into being it will be easier to handle Iran is the opposite of the case: a Palestine state will be Iran, in the sense that it will be run by Hamas as a proxy for the Islamic Republic. The idea that a Palestine state will not compromise Israel’s security is ludicrous.

It is of course, by any sane standard, quite fantastic that America is behaving as if it is Israel which is holding up a peace settlement when Israel has made concession after concession giving up Sinai, giving up Gaza, offering all the territories to the Arabs in return for peace in 1967, offering more than 90 per cent of them ditto in 2000, ditto again to Mahmoud Abbas in the past year -- only to be attacked in return by a Palestinian terrorist entity, backed in its continued aggression, let us not forget, by the countries of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, which has made no concessions at all and is not being pressured to do so.

It is not the aggressor here but the victim of aggression that America is now choosing to beat up. In any sane world, one might think the Americans would be piling the pressure on the Palestinians to renounce their genocidal ambitions against Israel, to stop teaching and training their children to hate and kill Jews, to adhere to the primary requirement in the Road Map that they must dismantle their infrastructure of violence as the first step in the peace process; one might think, indeed, that they would view Mahmoud Abbas’s repeated statements that the Palestinians will never accept Israel as a Jewish state to be the main impediment to peace.

But no. The repeated professions that America will never jeopardise Israel’s security are stomach churning when Obama is actually blaming Israel for measures it has taken to safeguard its security the settlements were always first and foremost a security measure, and the travel restrictions are there solely to prevent more Israelis being murdered and trying to force it to abandon them. Today comes further news that Obama will also try to force Israel to give up its nuclear weapons which it only has as a last ditch insurance against the attempt to annihilate it to which several billion Arabs remain pledged.

Of course Obama doesn’t care that Hamas would run any Palestinian state. Of course he doesn’t care that Israel would be unable to defend itself against such a terrorist state. Because he regards Israel as at best totally expendable, and at worst as a running sore on the world's body politic that has to be purged altogether (see this bleak assessment by Sultan Knish: http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2009/05/obamas-plan-to-destroy-israel.html). His administration is proceeding on the entirely false analysis that a state of Palestine is the solution to the Middle East impasse and the route to peace in the region. What that state will look like or do is something to which at best the administration's collective mind is shut and at worst makes it a potential cynical accomplice to the unconscionable. So Israel is to be forced out of the West Bank. Far from building a coalition against Iran, Obama is thus doing Iran’s work for it.

None of this, however, should come as the slightest surprise to anyone who paid any attention to Obama’s background, associations and friendships before he became President and to the cabal of Israel-bashers, appeasers and Jew-haters he appointed to his administration, with a few useful idiots thrown in for plausible deniability.

American Jews, meanwhile, are reacting as predicted with a total absence of spine. As IsraelMatzav reports, AIPAC was sending delegates to visit Congress to 'convince' Representatives and Senators to sign a petition calling for a two-state solution. Inspired! Almost eighty per cent of American Jews voted for Obama despite the clear and present danger he posed to Israel. They did so because their liberal self-image was and is more important to them than the Jewish state whose existence and security cannot be allowed to jeopardise their standing with America’s elite.

But the ordinary American people are a different matter. They do value and support Israel. They do understand that if Israel is thrown under that bus, the west is next. And it is they to whom Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu must now appeal, over the heads of the politicians and the media and certainly America’s Jews and everyone else. He must tell the American people the terrible truth, that America is now run by a man who is intent on sacrificing Israel for a reckless and amoral political strategy which will put America and the rest of the free world at risk.

This is shaping up to be the biggest crisis in relations between Israel and America since the foundation of Israel six decades ago. Those who hate Israel and the Jews will be gloating. This after all is precisely what they hoped Obama would do. To any decent person looking on aghast, this is where the moral sickness of the west reaches the critical care ward.

Why is anyone suprised?

Obama is a black man and shares the black disdain of Jews and Israel.

American Jews are mostly leftist and will side will a Marxist dictator over the Jewish homeland.

Stated differently, it is easier to espouse liberal rhetoric in the face of oppression and not stand up.

Many Jews did not learn from the Nazi and Soviet murders and deathcamps.

“White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel reportedly told the Israel lobbying group AIPAC on Sunday that efforts to stop Iran hinged on peace talks with the Palestinians.”

Let’s see...Hamas has said they will accept no two-state solution. That makes this extortion ALSO functionally impossible.

When will the US Jewish population realize that the occupant of the White House and his henchmen are no friends of theirs?

The sad thing is, the US is coercing Israel simply because the Israeli people are sane, rational, and urban, thusly such threats carry weight with them, the degenerate Palestinians on the other hand, are reaping benefits from behaving terribly, in fact, the worse they behave, the more support they receive.

It’s insane, but it is what it is, when GWB was running things such nonsense would not have been considered for .003 seconds...

You know, the relationship between the U.S. and Israel is a bit complex. Sometimes, yes, they need our aid in the region.

Other times, I think that it's more like they need the U.S. to restrain them from an alternative course of action....

If Obama is throwing them under a bus ... whooo boy....

“History will not look well on a United States that abandons the Jews to a second holocaust.”

What these misguided backstabbers, from Pres. Obama on down, don’t realize, is that when you mess with Israel you are messing with the apple of God’s eye!

To paraphrase the late Evangelist, Oliver B. Greene: It would be safer to go out on a hilltop and wave a lightning rod around above your head in the middle of an electrical storm than to deal treacherously with Israel.

While initially, the likes of Obama, Immanuel, et al, may be able to throw Israel under the bus and cause some injury to her; the judgement of God will fall on each of those individuals just as sure as the sun is going to rise tomorrow. I hope I am around to see it and say, “I told you so.”

God’s promise to Abraham has never been rescinded:
“Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, But I will curse those who curse you. And through you I will bless all the nations.”

Israel will never be destroyed but Barack Obama and America certainly can be destroyed and will be.

To attempt to harm Israel in any way is to declare war on God and that is a war has never been won and a war that cannot be won.

When this "president" places himself and this country in the position of forcing Israel to do something that will cause her injury, America will suffer profoundly more than whatever hell Israel goes through because of our siding with Israel's enemies.

Barack Obama is playing a dangerous, deadly game.

Of course.

The "Arab states" use the Palestinian cause as an emotional issue with their people. Standard stuff for despotic regimes. But ... whodathunkit ... along comes Obama who actually believes that these little kingdoms give a hoot about the Palestinian people. They don't, of course, and now when they really want him (or Israel) to bomb Iran they are trapped in the antisemitic hole they have dug for themselves. Give me a break. There is (pardon the pun) ZERO CHANCE that Obama will do anything with Iran except sit back and watch them develop the bomb. He will always take the easy way out even if it kills us and it may. Either Israel will do it or it won't get done. And Obama is going to do everything he can to stop them from doing so. After all what's worse - a nuclear Iran or Obama's peace loving image besmirched?

“Jewish American’s need to stand up, you might have voted for the man but you do not have to accept what he is doing to Israeli!”

The vast majority of Jewish Americans are liberal, and don’t give a rats ass about the Nation of Israel. They think that as long as Israel exists, it’s a thorn in their flesh because it fulfills prophecies that Israel will remain a nation forever once it is re-established after the regathering from the Diaspora. Liberal Jews hate God, and as long as Israel exists as a nation, it’s a constant reminder to them that God exists, and He keeps His promises, and that drives them to near insanity.

"Sad, we are turning into the UK part 2".

And remember what happened to UK Part 1 when they renigged on their promise to give all of what is now Iraq as a homeland to the Jews. The English Empire began to crumble as nation after nation declared independence from England so that the saying "The sun never sets on the English Empire" has disappeared, and Britain is just a pebble of what it use to be. It ruled the sky, the sea, and land from many years until it spat in God's face, just as Barack Hussein Obama's America is doing right now.

Israel will never be destroyed but Barack Obama and America certainly can be destroyed and will be.

I hate to disagree with you, but I believe that The Lord will allow Israel to be destroyed (as He's done over and over again, throughout history) as punishment for abandoning Him, though He won't allow the Jewish people to be completely destroyed. But I also believe that America has held a special place in The Lord's heart, and has been used as His instrument a number of times in the past. And I have no doubt that America has been blessed by The Lord in so many ways, over and over again. But I'm also aware that America could very well be angering The Lord, and we could find that we're losing those blessings, based on what we do, and who we (collectively) elect to guide our country.

I do fear for Israel, and I fear for the USA.

Not surprising, Obama is Muslim, he is still alive so that means he has not disavowed Islam, he will serve Islam not the God of our fathers and we should expect Islam to get preferential treatment by our government and make headway toward becoming the dominant religion in the US. Scary stuff coming.

Still unbelievable but I think Israel can handle this kid in the Whitehouse. I’m sure Israel is arming themselves to the hilt and if they really got tough with Obama he’d fold in a second. Israel will not commit suicide and if Israel goes so does the entire middle east. Let Obama weigh that threat and try to vote present. Israel hasn’t really flexed it’s muscles yet. No country can be expected to toss their national survival into the hands of a naive bully who will promise anything without any intention of honoring those promises. Israel can not and will not put their lives into the hands of Obama.

Unfortunate, he may be just the person who allows a peace treaty with "The One" which starts God's Wrath to come upon the Whole Earth called the Tribulation. He may forced into this, not willingly, for the survival of Israel. There might be something that is brewing among the heads of state that will force Netanyahu to sign a peace treaty in the not to distant future with "The One" so that great bloodshed can be averted. Remember Jesus' words: "These things MUST COME TO PASS, but the end is not yet. These are the BEGINNINGS OF BIRTH PANGS." Then the "Tribulation" that Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and the "minor" prophets spoke about will come to pass, AND THEN THE RETURN OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, IN GREAT GLORY TO RULE FOR A 1,000 YEARS upon the Earth!!!! MARANATHA - OUR LORD, COME, COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS!!!!

I think this is exactly God’s plan.

To force the Jews to turn to him, to make them realise they only have Him to rely on, not their wallets and not the U.S.A.

To force them to become the People of the Book, as in the Bible.

Apparently never. The libtard Jewish groups were given a fig leaf of support for Israel from the Obamanation during the campaign then they dutifully lined up to vote dim. They are worse than damn fools. They truly are dangerous, to us, Israel, and the world.
