Obama's Israel Surprise
Wall Street Journal ^ | 5/19/11 | Jay Solomon & Carol E. Lee

Posted on 05/19/2011 10:21:16 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama, seeking to get ahead of historic changes rolling through the Middle East, promised support for democratic uprisings in the Arab world and called for the first time to begin negotiations for a Palestinian state based on Israel's pre-1967 borders. Mr. Obama, in a wide-ranging speech on the Mideast, stressed to a global audience—the speech was broadcast in English, Arabic and Farsi—that with the fall of governments in Tunisia and Egypt and the death of Osama bin Laden, the era of al Qaeda and Islamist militancy is giving way to an age of popular rule.

I am sure that God has a surprise for Obozo.

He is not deceived or mocked.

“The Book” is clear about what he does to those who would make war on Israel.

These morons should be careful for what they wish! Those who are involved in these Arab uprisings are NOT friends to the U.S.

“Rabbi: ‘The President of the United States is Asking for Ethnic Cleansing’
Thursday, May 19, 2011
By Fred Lucas

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama has made an unprecedented demand on Israel, Jewish leaders said today after the president called for Israel to redraw its borders to where they were in 1967 before the Six Day War. One rabbi said Obama was, in essence, asking for “ethnic cleansing” of thousands of Jewish families.
snip

Rabbi Spero. “It’s ironic that the president, who speaks in humanitarian tones regarding the Palestinians, doesn’t have any humanitarian concerns toward 500,000 Jewish people and families that will be uprooted and deported from their homes.”
snip

“Every time Israel relinquishes land on the altar of peace, it gets not peace but rockets,” Spero said. “This has been played over and over by the Palestinian Authority, then with Yasser Arafat, with Hamas. He knows what will happen with the Israelis, and yet it doesn’t seem to bother him.”’

Barack Hussein Obama seems to have the mentality of radical Muslims.

Tell that to the Coptic Christians in Egypt, Christians in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq, aside from the Israelis. (Sarc)

This is pure unreal fiction.

The Moron-in-Chief doesn't have the best interests of the U.S. in mind either.

That goes without saying. I recognized that during the 2008 campaign.

I’m seeing more and more comments on articles about the none in main-stream articles that Americans aren’t enamored with his decisions. He at least won’t be re-elected. Save a FDR attempt for a third term.

How can this be a surprise. The moment the _resident announced a major foreign policy speech on the eve of Netanyahu’s visit I knew he was going to do something exactly like this. I believe I even posted it. There is no surprise here for anyone who has been paying attention to this administration. (even thought I said I three times ... whoops, now make that four. It’s not all about me, just that this was a predictable as the sunrise).

He’s either a fool or a liar. The fallen regimes will only be replaced by fundamentalists spoiling for jihad.

It's not fiction if Ubama believes it.

Popular Muslim Theocracy rule. This is more proof that Liberalism is a severe mental disease. Therapies need to be developed to fight it. Maybe the resources we put in the CDC could be used to research curing Liberalism. It is doing more damage to us than Cancer or Heart Attacks. Instead of Obamacare maybe a company could come up with insurance to cover the ill effects of Liberalism and Socialism. This mental illness may be airborne or passed down through defective genes. Infected people in groups seems to make the symptoms even worse.

Ah, but don’t you know our Poser in Chief is a Christian? Certainly he knows where this particular, anti-Israel national strategy leads, eh?

I would not be at all surprised if Obama were to organized some form of reward to Jewish people like free travel tickets to America.

To take a guided tour of Obamaland.

To enjoy the thrills of a theme park ride that will have a surprised ending in in the main chambers rebuilt upon the plans of Auschwitz.

I certainly pray he doesn’t get re-elected. My fear is that Zero sees the writing on the wall and has stepped up his efforts to transform the USA and Israel/Mideast into Zero’s own vision. He is doubling down on doing as much damage as possible in the time he has left in office.

G-d bless the USA and Israel.

That is what he told people. But if you look at his "church" it reveals something few Christians understand. Black Liberation Theology- Communism in a thin "religious" wrapper. And they accepted Muslims in their church without conversion. Is that not revealing.

But, God is not deceived. We are all responsible for our actions. This will play out by his rules.

Interesting that his speech was translated into English, Arabic, Farsi, and —NOT— Hebrew. Why not go the extra mile for Israel and honor their native tongue?
