Sources: Obama Administration to Support Anti-Israel Resolution at UN Next Week
Weekly Standard ^ | June 11, 2010 | William Kristol

Posted on 06/11/2010 8:33:03 AM PDT by Al B.

THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that senior Obama administration officials have been telling foreign governments that the administration intends to support an effort next week at the United Nations to set up an independent commission, under UN auspices, to investigate Israel's behavior in the Gaza flotilla incident. The White House has apparently shrugged off concerns from elsewhere in the U.S. government that a) this is an extraordinary singling out of Israel, since all kinds of much worse incidents happen around the world without spurring UN investigations; b) that the investigation will be one-sided, focusing entirely on Israeli behavior and not on Turkey or on Hamas; and c) that this sets a terrible precedent for outside investigations of incidents involving U.S. troops or intelligence operatives as we conduct our own war on terror.

Not that he’ll listen, but the occupied Whitehouse needs to hear from millions of us about this. We need to support Israel.

Bastards. The only thing that explains it in my mind is one (or both) of two things:
1. A genuine pro-Arab/Muslim preference on the part of Obama; or
2. A desire to continue to create distance between the U.S. and Israel in order to avoid U.S. blame in case of an Israeli attack on Iran.

Barack Hussein Obama can't be seen to support any military action against Muslims. He is the son of a Muslim father, and is technically an apostate from Islam. Essentially, he is on his good behavior. He would be in personal danger if he were to side with Israel.

Why does it perplex you so? All jews are not Zionists. Wouldn't it make sense that fervent Israel supporting jews would want to move to Israel already?

And that the remainder of the jewish diaspora could be more or less indifferent to Zion, but still be good jews.

Given a choice between loyalty to Israel and loyalty to the Democratic Party, most American Jews would gladly send Israelis to the gas chambers.

There is a rationale that applied to presidents in general, and Israel in particular, states that one appearing to be an Israel supporter would bend over backwards for the Arab countries so as to not appear to be favoring one side or the other... and thus, the worst thing for Israel would be a jewish president.

Who would have thunk that this president, who clearly showed prior signs of being pro-Arab, would defy this rationale... and actually be extremely anti-Israel, to the point of undermining them and almost openly plotting for its destruction (and moving its citizens, to their arab neighbors delight, into the Mediterranean).

That's not what I said.

Some American jews think that Zionism reduces the safety and security of the Israeli people.

Liberal American jews agree with Helen Thomas, and they don't like conservatives who are sympathetic to the National interests of Israel.

It's surprising that so many people are so ignorant of this distinction, and always seem to be mystified by the apparent contradictions in American Jews' political leanings.

It's not contradictory at all. Liberal American Jews don't think like we do.

Anti Israel Resolution = Anti democracy, Anti European, and Anti American resolution.

Whatever happens to Israel happens to us!

Israel , the ONLY democracy in the mideast, surrounded by ISlamic Tyrants, thugs, monarchies and mullocracies needs to be supported, NOT destroyed, let alone by the US who pushed hard for the return of Israelites to their homelands, (as did Europe).

My oh my, what happens when we have our own mullah in chief!

You mistake posts of astonishment for ignorance.

Most here know that liberal Jews are hostile towards the State of Israel. We know that liberal Jews believe if Israel was “pushed into the sea” all would be well in the Middle East, and that Jews worldwide would then be safe from the Islamic headchoppers.

We also know that is pure balderdash.

And that anyone believing that way is most definitely not a “good jew”.

I pray the Lord frustrates the ways of those who are wicked conspirators against Israel.

This administration does not represent those who support and pray for Israel and Jerusalem in this nation. They do not represent what we believe.

Israel has a right to existence and to self preservation and self defense.

Never Forget.

It's time to stop paying attention to acts of pretended legislation from a nonexistent World Legislature.

Unfortunately, the State of Israel has been one of the leading champions of "UN resolution this, Security Council measure that".

Ignore them. They have no authority, represent nobody, and should dry up and blow away.

There are a lot of events in Revelation that have yet to be fulfilled but I believe they will be fulfulled in rapid suscession. 7 years to be exact. That still doesn’t change the fact that Satan and his minions have been trying to kill the Lords people since the Exodus and even furthur back. All the way back to the Garden of Eden.

If you think what Obama is doing vis a vis Israel is limited to damage to Israel, you are sadly mistaken.

If you think any of this is cause to discuss the opinions of far Left American Jews vis a vis Israel you couldn’t be more wrong. It’s not about them. It’s about all of us.

What Obama is doing is encouraging deranged people who don’t think clearly under normal circumstances.

Where Obama encourages Iran, and if they act, or if Israel is forced to act preemptively, and if Turkey is encouraged further to Islam, you will pay near $10 for gas, the economy will make the Depression seem like happy times, and all will result is societal upheaval.

Hitler had Jews on his mind, but WWII was more then the Holocaust.

Obama is playing with fire. All of us -not just Israel and the Mideast- will, in one way or another, burn if it ignites.

You stole my words; thank you. He is indeed and the jackals with red eyes who are part of the regime. There is a link to Bibi where you can email him. I don’t have it but I encourage everyone to email him with support saying you are a US citizen who supports him and not our president.

One more reason for him to do so. Then his paranoid fantasies of being oppressed might actually acquire some foundation.
