Obama's Anti-Israel Collaborators
The Bulletin ^ | Wednesday, May 20, 2009 | Joan Swirsky

Posted on 05/21/2009 3:46:08 AM PDT by IbJensen

Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, has long and deep ties with the enemies of America and Israel. This is what Dick Morris, former advisor to President Bill Clinton, and his wife, Eileen McGann, wrote last year:

“[Hillary’s] relationship with terrorists began in the mid-1980s when she served on the Board of the New World Foundation, which gave funds to the Palestine Liberation Organization [when] the PLO was officially recognized by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization. In 1996, the First Lady initiated an outreach program to bring Muslim leaders to the White House. But, as terrorism expert Steve Emerson noted in the Wall Street Journal, ‘Curiously, nearly all of the leaders…came from Islamic fundamentalist organizations … Among these radical groups was the American Muslim Alliance (AMA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, both groups that support Hamas…The Palestinian terrorists know that Hillary hears their point of view … Abu Hamed, leader of the Al Aqsa Brigades in Gaza, [said], ‘We just hope that she will go until the end and change American policy.”

Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has advocated ending all U.S. military aid to Israel. Ed Lasky at AmericanThinker.com writes that “Rice was John Kerry’s chief foreign policy adviser when he ran for President. One of the major steps Kerry suggested for dealing with the Middle East was to appoint James Baker and Jimmy Carter as negotiators. When furor erupted at the prospect of two of the most ardent foes of Israel being suggested to basically ride ‘roughshod’ over Israel, Kerry backtracked and blamed his staff for the idea. His staff was Susan Rice.”

Lee Hamilton, as Mr. Lasky writes, is a key Obama adviser on Middle Eastern affairs. A former Indiana representative, Mr. Hamilton led the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group, which concluded, among other things, that the withdrawal of troops from Iraq should be coordinated with Syria and Iran! And that the U.S. should develop Syrian “goodwill” by pressuring Israel to surrender the Golan Heights and leave the West Bank — but not a word about dismantling Hamas or Hezbollah! Mr. Hamilton wrote in the New York Times that Hezbollah’s “hatred was created by Israel; it wasn’t there at the beginning.”

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Mr. Carter’s National Security adviser, has been one of Israel’s most consistently hostile critics and Hamas’ most ardent supporters, as well as a staunch admirer (both in writing and verbally) of Stephen Walt’s and John Mearsheimer’s virulently anti-Israel book, The Israel Lobby, which, among other things, contends that Jewish pressure, and not shared values, binds America and Israel together.

James (“F… the Jews”) Baker, among the harshest detractors of Israel, has often engaged in raw anti-Semitic remarks, is known for coddling Middle East dictators (including Syria’s Assad), and has been heavily invested (through the Carlyle Group) in the Israel-hating country of Saudi Arabia. In fact, Mr. Baker’s law firm defended the Saudi Defense Minister who was sued for alleged complicity by the families of the World Trade Center victims.

Samantha Power, now on Mr. Obama’s National Security Council, has advocated ending all U.S. military aid to Israel and written of her willingness to “alienate a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import [American Jews] … it may more crucially mean sacrificing … billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the state of Palestine.”

Believe me, the above is the short list. As Glick has written: “In the past, while anti-Israel politicians, policy makers and opinion shapers were accepted in Washington, they would not have felt comfortable brandishing their anti-Israel positions as qualifying credentials for high position … today in Washington there are powerful circles of political players for whom a person’s anti-Israel bona fides are his strongest suit.”

Obama’s Court Jews

Oh, I can hear the blather as I type: But what about all the Jews who voted for Mr. Obama and are in his cabinet and among his advisors? Make no mistake — Mr. Obama’s Court Jews are identical to those of the past who financed, supported, licked the boots of and sold out their people in order to gain the personal influence, privileges, wealth and protection that the “nobles” afforded them. They helped Roman emperors kill Jews. They helped Hitler kill Jews. But after their groveling and traitorous service, they were blamed for economic downturns and used as scapegoats to explain away the failures of the evil regimes and leaders they abetted. Fools and dupes, to a person!

Journalist Melanie Phillips writes: “Obama is attempting to throw Israel under the Islamist bus, and he’s getting American Jews to do his dirty work for him … none of this, however, should come as the slightest surprise to anyone who paid any attention to Mr. 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.”

In an article titled “THE FINAL SOLUTION – What Hitler didn’t finish,” Mr. Obama will, blogger Daniel Greenfield (Sultanknish.blogspot.com) explains:

“Mr. Obama has been clever about putting his Jewish appointees front and center. Like many minorities, some American Jews suffer from self-esteem problems that are soothed when they see a seeming acceptance. Of course what they fail to realize is that exploitation is not acceptance. And that Mr. Obama’s appointees are creatures of his backers, Nazi collaborators like Mr. Soros, who have nothing but contempt for Jews, individually or collectively.

“While outwardly courting Jews, Mr. Obama’s people have also been quietly shoving Jewish organizations and their leaders into a corner. Within the Jewish organizational world there has been a silent but deadly takeover of major Jewish groups by left wing radicals. Former alumni of the far left wing and anti-Israel groups like Breira or Coname in the ’70s have been elevated to key positions in such organizations as the UJA Federation. Behind the scenes any Jewish leaders who expressed even doubts about Obama during the primaries were intimidated and silenced.”

The overall idea is to keep a happy face pasted on American Jewry while the knives are out in the dark.

But why would people who hate Jews surround themselves with so many of them? As Don Vito Corleone warned his son Michael, “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” As much as the enemies of Jews hate them, they also fear them. They can’t figure out how a historically besieged people — whose population today is about 14 million, as compared to, say, Muslims, whose population is 1.3 billion — have not only managed to survive the Jew-targeting Inquisition, Crusades, pogroms, concentration camps and pandemic outbreaks of anti-Semitism, but to flourish and rise to the top echelons of any community they’ve ever lived in. In short, they want the brains of the Jews and also the ability to blame them when things go wrong.

But don’t these smart Jews know they’re being used? Yes and no. They’ve studied history, but they think that the passage of time has made them immune from mistakes of the past. Of course they’re wrong. Fools and dupes always get fooled and duped. Unfortunately — actually, stupidly — too many Jews, over the ages, have been seduced by the hope-and-change rhetoric of the left, so yearning are they to be “included” and “accepted” into cultures that have ultimately rejected them.

Just Who Are Obama’s Court Jews?

Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff and, in my opinion, Chief of Dupes. As writer Judith Apter Klinghoffer reminds us: “By choosing a Jewish chief of staff to do the dirty work, Obama showed himself a ‘worthy’ successor to LBJ. Arthur Goldberg was LBJ’s point man to read the riot act to Israel. It was his Jewish U.N. representative that was charged with berating Israel for daring to retaliate against Palestinian acts of terror in 1966 and to inform Israel that it should not rely on any American assistance against Nasser in may 1967.” And now Mr. Emanuel is taking the bait, currying favor for his figurative 10 minutes of fame, the better to sell out his Israeli-born father and the land his father heroically fought for in the early years of Israel’s existence.

David Axelrod, the chief strategist and media advisor for Mr. Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and now a White House insider, is not front and center about his hero’s antagonism toward Israel. But as the old chestnut says: Silence is Consent!

Robert Malley is another fan of Hamas and Hezbollah. According to Wikipedia, Mr. Malley is the son of Simon Malley, an Egyptian-born Jewish journalist, and Barbara Silverstein, a New Yorker who worked for the U.N. delegation of the Algerian National Liberation Front. Both loathed Israel and apparently passed their toxic DNA onto their son. Mr. Malley has often called for an end to all aid to Israel.

Dennis Ross, Mr. Obama’s special adviser for the Persian Gulf and Southwest Asia, which includes Iran, participated in 12 years of failed Israeli-Palestinian “peace” efforts. In 2001, he suggested that future negotiations ought to be based on “something the parties have put on the table, and not [what] the United States has put on the table.” Translated today, that would mean listening to the 22 hostile states that surround Israel and saying “majority rules!”

George Soros, the Budapest-born multibillionaire (and Nazi collaborator) has devoted his entire life, as writer Srdja Trifkovic points out, to supporting “increased government spending and tax increases, drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders and immigration, immigrant entitlements, feminism, free abortion-on-demand, affirmative action, and gay rights” and “remains primarily committed to destroying the remaining bastions of the family, sovereign nationhood, and Christian Faith …” He is also devoted to vilifying Israel and funding numerous groups that work unstintingly to bring about its destruction.

Again, this is the short list. But the entire list of Obama “advisers” on Middle East affairs is comprised of hard-core leftists who want nothing more than to see America humiliated and Israel destroyed. As Mr. Lasky has said, “This is the company Barack Obama keeps.”

Consequences Be Damned

Melanie Phillips calls the Obama administration’s “malice” toward Israel “incomprehensible in its suicidal stupidity.”

It is trying to make Israel play the role of Czechoslovakia in 1938, when Britain under Neville Chamberlain told it that if it didn’t submit to the Nazis it would stand alone — with the result that the following year, Hitler invaded Poland. Determined to prove that history repeats itself the second time as tragedy, America is trying to force Israel to destroy its security by accepting the creation of a terrorist Iranistan on its doorstep, under the threat that otherwise the U.S. will not help protect its security by de-fanging Iran … but in doing so, the Obama administration is jeopardizing the security of America itself and the free world, not to mention the Arab states which have good reason to fear Iranian regional hegemony.

Indeed. As DEBKAfile reports:

• Tehran itself will not let Washington dictate the limits of its expanding influence (or) nuclear aspirations.

• Cairo and Riyadh will resist with all their might the U.S. bid to anoint Iran the crowning Middle East-Gulf power [and are] extremely concerned by Mr. Obama’s public endorsement of Turkey as the senior Muslim power in the Eastern Mediterranean and Central Asia, a boost for Ankara’s aspirations to resuscitate the Ottoman Empire.

• Jerusalem will resist being cast into a peripheral role in the strategic and military processes going forward with regard to Iran, the Palestinians, Syria and their terrorist arms, Hezbollah and Hamas, all of which bear pivotally on Israel’s future existence.

Like Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the Netanyahu government may not accept being crushed between two hostile regional powers, Iran and Turkey, whose aggressive pretensions Washington is promoting.

Amil Taheri points out: “Convinced that the Obama administration is preparing to retreat from the Middle East, Iran’s Khomeinist regime is intensifying its goal of regional domination. It has targeted six close allies of the U.S.: Egypt, Lebanon, Bahrain, Morocco, Kuwait and Jordan, all of which are experiencing economic and/or political crises … Khomeinist propaganda is trying to portray Iran as a rising ‘superpower’ in the making while the United States is presented as the ‘sunset” power.’ The message is simple: The Americans are going, and we are coming … with pro-American and other democratic groups disheartened by the perceived weakness of the Obama administration, Tehran hopes its allies will win all the elections planned for this year in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.

And writer Tom Gross says that “the threat of a nuclear arsenal in the hands of the only government in the world (Iran) that promotes suicide bombing as a matter of state policy (by its client militias in Gaza, Lebanon, Iraq and elsewhere), and celebrates `martyrdom of its fellow Muslims’ in such attacks, is a threat quite unlike any the world has ever seen. The combination of weapons of mass destruction and jihadist ideology poses a problem of much greater magnitude than that when secular dictatorships and semi-dictatorships, such as Russia, China and North Korea and Pakistan, possess nuclear bombs. In addition to posing an existential threat to Israel, a nuclear Iran could mean the end of American influence in the Middle East. Tehran, not Washington would dominate oil in the region.”

But none of these threats, not only to the Middle East but also to America, are of any import to President Obama. In his single-minded obsession to appease our enemies and get rid of his “Jewish problem,” he is willing to sacrifice the safety and security of America, the country he can’t stop apologizing for. Or is that he has a Muslim problem and the Jews and Israel are simply in the way?

The problem is that Israel is our best - and virtually only reliable - ally in the Middle East. To alienate Israel leaves us reliant on the character and integrity of the Moslem people and their rulers, and that’s not something you want when you’re attempting to formulate an effective Middle East foreign policy.

In this, as in so many areas, the current administration strikes out on common sense.

The Obama administration should do so, as well. They’re gonna find out the hard way that relying on the integrity of Moslem rulers in the region when formulating foreign policy is a formula for betrayal and disaster. It’s only a matter of time before events wise up the policy-makers in the White House.

I have always supported Israel.
I just wish American Jews would.

As for Israel being our ally? We’ll see here in the near future if Israel attacks Iran and how we react.
Do you have ANY confidence in obamma lamma ding dong doing the right thing and supporting Israel?
I rather believe that if Israeli jets enter Iraqi airspace obamma lamma will have our air force go after them.
No confidence in obamma .

This weekend, in my town, during Memorial Day Weekend in the United States of America, there is to be a re-dedication of the Honor Roll of local Jewish men who have served their country. I will, sadly, not be there.
To attend will be to stand with people who betray that for which these heroes served, suffered, and in some cases gave their all.
I will NOT stand with people who laud, applaud and celebrate HE who is ready and willing to betray not only his own country, but he who overtly acts to betray what is NOT my country, but the country of my people, my religion, and my own admiration.
I will NOT make further donations those groups, cloaked in the mantle of “Judiasm” whose very leaders join those who would destroy me.
And it is not ME, at my age I realize that it is 5 minutes to 12, rather it is my FUTURE being betrayed, in the lives of my grandchildren.
When the desired result does occur, there will be a cry across the land, “How did..how could...this happen AGAIN.”
How tragic to know the answer..”It is what YOU asked for. It is what YOU voted for. It is what YOU refused to see coming.”

And yet, America’s Jewish population is overwhelmingly for Obama, nevertheless. Go figure.

How about figuring out why 54% of Catholics and 45% of Christians voted for Obama?

Out of his 66 million vote totals, 53.5 million of them are Christians and Catholics, and only slightly more than 1 million are Jewish. Basically, a 50-to-1 advantage.

Historically, going back to 1920, around 75% of American Jews voted Democratic, with the exception of Reagan in 1980 and George Bush in 2004, who polled 36% to 44% of the Jewish vote.

Also, historically speaking, liberal Democrats have not always been the universal pariahs that they are today nor have conservative Republicans always been the clear-headed, righteous, and American patriots of the Reagan era.

About 78% of American Jews are liberals, but they don't vote like other groups of liberals. Believe it or not, America's policies towards Israel and her enemies are what drive their choices.

Reagan's strong stance on Israel as an ally, before and after the election, is what drew him so much support from the Jewish community. Conversely, Reagan alienated a lot of the Jewish population by casting his lot with the Christian Right and inviting them to join in making policy decisions about domestic issues.

Wherever and whenever religion and politics mix, Jews are the ones made to suffer the consequences. That's why whenever conservative Republicans get too chummy with Evangelicals, Jews on both sides of the political spectrum head Left.

Unfortunately, being liberal means listening to liberal programming in the media and public broadcasting that has become decidedly anti-Israel, but it has done so gradually and over time as Arabs and Muslims became more involved in acedemia and politics, using the paucity of Middle Eastern history that all Americans have to push their own revisionist versions.

Those who are ignorant of the truth are more prone to believing lies and being manipulated by those who practice lying as an integral part of their religious and/or political ideology. The shift away from Israel and towards the Arab countries was all part of a carefully calculated effort to revise all aspects of Middle Eastern history to where the Muslims were seen as the extant founders and dominant contributors to modern civilization, and to use this faux renaissance to shape public opinion about Christian "imperialism" (aka, the Crusades) and Jewish "Zionism" (aka, the "Occupation").

I was taught in public school that the Crusades were all about Christian aggression towards nonbelievers, Jews and Muslims alike. It wasn't until I read Robert Spencer's "The Politicially Incorrect Guide to Islam," did I realize that I had been sold a bunch of Leftist/Marxist/Muslim bullsh*t. The first thing I did after reading it was to give it to my daughter to read. Boy, were her eyes opened!

I'm hoping that more American Jews will start reading about the true history of the Arab-Isralei conflict so that they will see on which side of the fence sit the Jew haters.

“Believe it or not, America’s policies towards Israel and her enemies are what drive their choices.”

Sorry, I don’t buy it. Obama’s position is clearly a denigration of American relations with Israel to the extent that Israel could cease to exist within the coming four years; nevertheless, Jews voted for him in huge numbers.

As to why Catholics (who ARE Christians, by the way) and Protestants voted for him, that’s another story for another day.

I’ve been hearing that Liberal Jews are not happy campers with Obama and his policies towards Israel. The assumption and percentages cited that claim Jews still support Hitler Jr seem distorted.

I’ve said this before and I will continue to state that the GOP has done very little to expose the RATs anti-semitic views and they’ve done nothing to increase the numbers of Jews voting Republican. The leadership of the GOP, at this point, are spineless, gutless SCHMUCKS.

I pray that Bibi has contacts within the American Jewish communities to inform American Jews about what Hitler Jr. is up to with regards to Israel and her security.

IMO you're wrong about voting, American Jews vote largely on domestic issues. The fact is there is very little difference in the parties policies toward Israel, thus far Obama is following in GWB's footsteps, and liberals who think America can successfully negotiate with her enemies will support the idea that Israel can and should do the same. Hostility toward Jews, as expressed by the Carter and Bush I administrations, yes, that can change the vote, but at this point we're in the post Bush I period. The Crusades, lot's of aggression, but it was about maintaining the right of Christians to revisit the Holy Land. Some things don't change.

Robert Spencer is a real hero along with Pam over at Atlas Shrugs - they are friends. As far as Evangelicals and Jews, I am neither. I think Evangelicals support Israel more than liberal American Jews who voted for Obama.

In addition, Bibi Nethanyahu did his “wilderness” tour in the United States a few years ago. I say wilderness because his situation was a bit like Churchill before WW2. They were called Churchill’s “wilderness years” before WW2. He was booted out of office by a populace that scorned him for being a hawk.

When Bibi came to America he gave speeches at large Evangelical churches which also had Jews in attendence and he pulled big crowds. I think they may have been speeches to help him raise money. I think he also spoke at synagogues but he pulled smaller numbers.

I think the frustration has to do with conservatives are dumb founded that (liberal) Jews would vote for O due to the serious risks for Israel and that (liberal) Catholics would vote for him due to partial birth and post birth murder.

I do not think it is anti-semitism or bigotry but just anger at the stupidity. I have more in common with conservative Jews and Catholics than other groups. I know conservative Jews and Catholics who were apoloplectic about the prospect of you know who.

I am also angry and have some pity for African Americans who were duped by this half African Arab. Most AA are Christians and O’s islamo relatives/tribe in Kenya and Sudan are killing African Christians. Dafur genoice is Muslims killing Christians but the media never mentions that. Rev. Manning in Harlem tried to warn African Americans.

Jews voted for Reagan in 1980 and against Carter because of Jimmy’s anti-Israel policies. Jews voted for Clinton over Bush Senior in 1996 because of Bubba’s Oslo “Peace” Accords (in addition to his economy fix). Jews voted for Dubya in 2004 because of his strong support of Israel, his smackdown of Iran’s and Iraq’s state-sponsored terrorism against Israel, and for his removal of Saddam from power — a major, existential threat to Israel.

So, why did Jews not vote for Dubya in 2000?

Your call.

Jews voted for Dubya in 2004 because of his strong support of Israel, his smackdown of Iran’s and Iraq’s state-sponsored terrorism against Israel, and for his removal of Saddam from power — a major, existential threat to Israel. So, why did Jews not vote for Dubya in 2000?

Jews were not supportive of the Iraq war, in most polls at the time they registered the highest levels of opposition amongst religious and demographic groups, in the mid to upper 70% disapproval range. And Jews didn't vote for Dubya in 2004, he got 24%, a slight increase over his 19% in 2000. In 2000 you had on the one hand the VP of a President popular in the Jewish community, on the other the son of the man who took the GOP share of the Jewish vote from 35% in 1988 to 11% in 1992. Based largely on his anti-Israel policies, this pro-Saudi "fuck the [American] Jews, they don't vote for us anyway" SOS, and his choice of Pat Buchanan, perceived by many as antisemitic, as the moral voice of the Republican Party. All legitimate reasons, imo.

Sorry, I don’t buy it. Obama’s position is clearly a denigration of American relations with Israel to the extent that Israel could cease to exist within the coming four years; nevertheless, Jews voted for him in huge numbers.

Obama's position was not "clearly" and widely known BEFORE the election. Who, exactly, hammered this point home? Not the media. Not the GOP. Who revealed Obama's promises about Israel for the lies they were? None of the above.

Where among the Jewish groups were the alarms being sounded BEFORE the election? Who was providing the specific evidence to Jewish groups, like AIPAC, that Obama would throw Israel under the bus AFTER the election?

Even the nontraditional media, like WND, shied away from pointing the finger at Obama before May of last year. It's only now, after his first 100 days, that the truth of Obama's "final solution" is coming to light. But as a prior poster had indicated, "McCain and the GOP did nothing to DOCUMENT and EXPOSE Obama's true intentions and his active anti-Israel associations." Heck, even FOXNEWS failed to make the security of Israel a national issue in the Presidential campaign, let alone a Jewish one.

Jewish groups were sold a "better batch of goods" by Obama and the 'Rats than by McCain and the Dumbos. Obama lied through his teeth, and no one made any concerted effort to strip them bare with a history of documented facts about ZERO's anti-Jewish/Anti-Israel associates and behaviors.

ALL of the political, fact-checking entities were liberal shills for Obama. There were no Conservative fact-checking sites to counter them. Obama's Campaign held full sway with their "Fight the Smears" website -- which was never called onto the carpet for all of its lies and distortions. There should have been been a Jewish counterpart to it, like "Fight the Shmucks," to put Conservatives and Pubs on the offensive.

So, what group or individual was able to get the attention of Jews and to debunk Obama's promises to them about Israel? (the sound you hear are crickets).

Obama would say, "America will not change her strong relationship with Israel. Israel will always be known as the Jewish state. Jerusalem will be the undivided capital of Israel."

What did McCain say in response? "Me, too!"

The GOP thinks that all they needed to do was to raise doubts about Obama as a leader and doubts about his ability to follow through on specific promises, and that alone should have been enough to sway Jewish opinion away from Obama. They could not have been more wrong if they tried.

None of the politicians this year had the cajones to talk the talk: to say why any and every "land for peace" deal is a sham; why the US will not support the creation of another terrorist Palestinian mini-state, nor will it condone having it ripped from Israel's own land and placed on its border; why the creation of another Hamasistan is also a threat to America, and not just Israel, and finally, why the Arab states, along with the UN, are solely responsible for creating the "Palestinian problem" 60 years ago and perpetuating it today, and that they are the only ones who can solve it and should solve it -- by resettling them in the same countries that expelled 1 million Jews from their homes after 1947.

Yeah, that would p*ss off a lot of Lefties and Muslim-Americans, but it's the truth and there is no substitute for it.

Seriously, how many people knew what would be the full extent of Obama's Socialistic blitzkreig on America and Israel BEFORE the election? The answer is "Not many at all." Of these few, how many devoted their time to convincing Jewish voters of it? The answer is, "Was there one?"

Where was Joe Lieberman?
Busy endorsing Juan! Lieberman has made no effort whatsoever, in convincing Jewish people about Obama’s hidden agenda. Lieberman covered his own A$$ in switching parties. Lieberman is an embarrassment and a coward.

Thank you for exposing the truth; one, that I’ve been trying to post as well (but not as well as you).

Now what??? How does the message get out to American Jews and the GOP leadership to publicize the truth; to expose the anti-semites within the RAT party and Zero’s henchmen?

I, for one was told when I brought up concerns about the anti-Israel folks he had on staff (Samantha Powers,Susan Rice, etc.) ...assured by Freepers even...that because Rahm Emmanuel was on board, Israel was not an issue. It appears they were dead wrong, just as I suspected.

No question that Obama has shown his contempt for Israel. He hates Jews and intends to destroy Israel.

But that’s not all he hates. He also hates the UK, and he hates Europe, and he hates real Christians, both Protestant and Catholic, and he hates America. He would be happy to destroy them all.

I think there is a solid conservative core of Catholics, Evangelicals, and Orthodox Jews who understand the need to work together to fight these cultural enemies of civilization, who are promoting their Culture of Death. Death to babies, death to Jews, death to Christians, death to families, death to western civilization—the heritage of Jerusalem, Athens, and Rome.

Unfortunately, the election of Obama, in part because the Republican leadership seems unable to understand what is at stake here and how to fight it, is a major setback. I would say possibly a fatal setback, if I were not confident that in the end G-d will prevail. But we are more and more in need of some kind of miracle of divine intervention.

That doesn’t mean that we sit back and wait for it, but we should certainly be praying for it. Because the subverters and the destroyers have been winning the battle for control of western culture, undermining it from within. And Obama is now their chief instrument of destruction.

I can see you’re passionate on the subject. Personally, I would argue that Obama’s radical agenda should have been apparent to all with eyes to see from the tone of his pre-election rhetoric. As for his posture toward Israel, his use of the name Hussein should have been something of a tipoff, IMHO.

Freepers knew before hand, there is just not enough of us and we have no mouthpiece.

Jews did know most of the extent of this guy. For the first time in their 3/4 of a century +++, many were going to vote for a candidate with an ‘R’ next to his name. They had wanted Hillary, and had been aware of the implications of the dark horse, early in the race.

Then he announced predictions of who his key advisors and who the cabinet people would be. The Jews found Rahm Emmanuel and the rest of the Clinton-redos, very reassuring. He sent his surrogates to their communities, including Slick Willie. He tricked them and misled them in the last 2 weks of October. Jews that cast their vote early for McCain were being harassed by their neighbors and feeling guilty. Now they are the ones with a clear conscious that can say, “ OMG, look what you have done to us now!”

The Jewish vote was a shame, but it was not a geat enough number of votes to have been a decisive factor in the election of 2008. Other groups that don’t vote a straight D ticket historically are much more to blame, IMHO. Evangelicals & Catholics voting for a man that promotes and votes for infanticide, now that is unexplainable, beyond shame. Abortion is not a deciding factor that draws the Jewish vote to Republicans (like support of Israel). Abortion is supposed to be a huge factor on the sanctity of life among Christians. They disregarded their faith or have a lack thereof to have voted for this guy. They should be aching with guilt and remorse.

And lets not forget our fellow FReepers that refused to vote for the Rino on principal. I kept warning people that it is not the way to teach a lesson. Look how well the the 2006 lesson they taught in Congress has worked out for us. It has pushed the country on a fast dark train to hell. Votes and non-votes and not campaigning (cause he is not a Conservative) have serious repercussions and implications. Conservative people are generally well-informed on the issues, but stubbornly refused to compromise. We could have had a piece (small-one) of the pie with McCain/Palin. Now we have nothing and no meaningful elective voice. We can only sit back and watch the country be dismantled.

Hopefully, for Jews, it is an opportunity to learn a lesson about fraud and deceit within party politics. Hopefully they will realize they should have followed their gut instincts and rejected this guy. Hopefully, there will still be an Israel and there will be a chance to make amends for the damage that occurs.

And I hate Obomba and everything this evil, narcissistic, imbecilic marxist stands for.

I even despise his pedigreed pooch.

They had wanted Hillary...

Why they wanted this fatso in a pants suit makes no sense whatsoever.

She's dictating to Bibi what Israel can and cannot do.

She is beyond trailer trash and the Kenyan-African who is her boss is hell-bent on destructing this nation.

...and he's succeeding in spades.

I don’t understand their logic. In the areas I am familair with, older Jews rely very heavily on the local party bosses and the Jewish newspapers they recieve to guide their vote. Only the Orthodox vote is strongly concerned for Israel. The others prioritize their liberalism before their Judaism. catholics (small c) did the same. Evangelicans were just plain stupid and read the Word lacking comprehension. Conservatives buried their collective heads in the sand, put their fingers in their ears, and sat on their hands. And here we are!

I agree with you, Hillary is now his hand puppet. Whatever she dictates to Bibi is directed and controlled by the man from Mombassa. She has no policy of her own. Had she won, I think things would have been different. OTH, let’s not forget that checkered head scarf creeping about the Lincoln Bedroom umpteen times during the ‘90’s or her reptilian kiss to Susa Arafat.

The Republican Jewish Coalition campaigned against Obama in the Jewish community, engaging in a series of debates with Jewish 'Rats around the country as well as other partisan activities, pointing out the obvious problems with Obama's ideas, supporters and background re Israel and the Middle East.
