Obama vs. Israel
The Moral Liberal ^ | May 15, 2011 | Alan Caruba

Posted on 05/15/2011 1:35:40 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

Is Obama a Muslim? Does Obama hate Israel? Will Israel be attacked again? Will Iran nuke Israel? Has Maghreb and Middle Eastern turmoil flummoxed the White House? Why did Obama bow to Saudi Arabia’s king? Questions, questions, questions?

Watching President Barack Hussein Obama try to pick winners and losers in the Middle East would be amusing if it were not so deadly serious. Not a word about Syria’s slaughter of its protestors. A demand that Libya’s Gadhafi step aside and a quick retreat behind NATO’s skirts. Throwing Egypt’s Mubarack under the bus when saying nothing would have sufficed. And then there was the infamous and inauspicious start to his presidency with the “World Apology Tour” that included a stop in Cairo.

A May 11th Reuters news article published in the Jerusalem Post was titled “Obama may preempt PM’s speech to U.S. Congress.” Benyamin Netanyahu, at the invitation of Speaker John Boehner, will address the Congress on May 24. If President Obama delivers a speech about “political change in the Middle East and North Africa” prior to the PM, it will be impossible to deny that it is a deliberate effort to rebut in advance anything Netanyahu says.

Call me a cynic but I believe that the decision to kill Osama bin Laden was not taken until the 2012 elections became a priority. Why? Because three terrorist attacks, including the Fort Hood murders, had previously been swept under the rug by the Obama administration. Moreover, the Obama Justice Department continues to threaten CIA agents with jail for the aggressive interrogation techniques that led to finding bin laden.

The Obama administration’s hostility to Israel and the rush to preempt the Israeli Prime Minister’s speech is a reflection the 180 degree reversal of all previous administration’s relations with Israel.

Osama might be dead as of that date but Al Sharpton is still running his mouth and the very first thing Dear Leader does to kick off his campaign is to align himself with a racist.

If I didn’t know that Obma was the wisest and smartest President to ever hit the White House I would be tempted tyo say, he doesn’t have a friggin clue.

In fact I WILL say it. He hasn’t got a friggin clue.

He has no more business having the job as President than would Rodney King. (another lotto winner).

Yes, definitely; yes, of course; probably and no.

Well, 180 degree reversal from most earlier Presidents. LBJ was not really Israel-friendly until the political realities forced him to be, and Jimmy Carter was a walking disaster.

Let me start with this. Whoever and whatever you are is meaningless to me. So, therefore, your opinion of me although unmerited and irrelevant, is also meaningless to me.

If you have something to say on the subject matter, fine. If not, then resolve your hostility in a more honest way.

This stuff makes me laugh. The Liberal Jews I know, Democrat/Socialism/Communism/Secularism/Humanism is part of their soul. They could never stop voting Democrat any more than they could cut off an arm.

It is amusing that they were so freakin ‘gaga’ over Obama, and he turned out to be just another Black radical hippy communist. He is anti-America, anti-Israel, and from is own words, anti-Christian(clinging to their God and their guns).

I don’t think he is entirely antisemitic, but he only likes Jews that support his anti-America/anti-Israel policies (believe it or not there are a lot of them).

But yeah, the Liberal American Jews have really dug themselves into a hole with this guy. He is clearly pro-Muslim in everything that he says and does. Unless they are retarded, they must realize that it is only a matter of time until he turns on them, regardless of how Liberal or ‘enlightened’ or pro-obama they are.

Great question.

I have looked at whether he eats pork for 3 years. Have yet to see it.

“The history of a distinct Palestinian national identity is a disputed issue amongst scholars.[19] The prevailing view is that Palestinian identity originated in the early decades of the twentieth century.[19] The first widespread use of “Palestinian” as an endonym to refer to the nationalist concept of a Palestinian people by the Arabs of Palestine began prior to the outbreak of World War I[20] The first demand for national independence was issued by the joint Syrian-Palestinian Congress on 21 September 1921.[21]

PMID 11543891. Retrieved November 10, 2010. “The genetic profile of Palestinians has, for the first time, been studied by using human leukocyte antigen (HLA) gene variability and haplotypes. The comparison with other Mediterranean populations by using neighbor-joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses reveal that Palestinians are genetically very close to Jews and other Middle East populations, including Turks (Anatolians), Lebanese, Egyptians, Armenians, and Iranians. Archaeological and genetic data support that both Jews and Palestinians came from the ancient Canaanites, who extensively mixed with Egyptians, Mesopotamian, and Anatolian peoples in ancient times. Thus, Palestinian-Jewish rivalry is based in cultural and religious, but not in genetic, differences. The relatively close relatedness of both Jews and Palestinians to western Mediterranean populations reflects the continuous circum-Mediterranean cultural and gene flow that have occurred in prehistoric and historic times. This flow overtly contradicts the demic diffusion model of western Mediterranean populations substitution by agriculturalists coming from the Middle East in the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition.”.

The Moral Liberal

Liberals today are incapable of getting past a discussion of abortion, therefore, having any discussion of morality with them is only out of politeness.

Those who will throw their own children under the bus will easily toss Israel alongside them.

Interesting non-trivial detail. It'd be worth someone's doing a FOIA for WH menus used by the Obamas since Jan 2009 and running a little check to see if WH menus are, mirabile dictu and "just by coincidence", halal-compliant.

Or maybe they did a sneaky by calling for a kosher kitchen instead.

Well, we know he sips beer. Of course, it is allowable for a good Moslem to fool the infidel by adopting his habits. Let’s send him a kielbasa and see if we get a thank you note.

It's okay for a president to be clueless as long as he is surrounded by bright people. Obama has mostly appointed the weak and the corrupt.

Or, lest we be accused of pulling a "Jew trick" on him, we could enlist the Germans instead, next time he visits Europe, to plunk down a plate of Eisbein in front of him and see what he does. Let's see if he insults the national delicacy of Germany.
