Posted on 05/22/2011 5:28:20 PM PDT by Zionist Conspirator
Seventy-eight percent of American Jews voted for Barack Obama, and in the wake of Obamas betrayal of Israel, Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League is trying to keep them on the reservation.
One wonders why Foxman even bothers with this dangerous fools errand. Obama has associated with antisemites and Palestinian jihad sympathizers throughout his political career, such that the Jews and supporters of Israel who voted for him in 2008 should be in full backpedal mode by now, apologizing for their earlier support for this clear enemy of Israel and dedicating themselves to defeating him in 2012.
But apparently Foxmans pride is more important to him than the survival of Israel as the Jewish homeland and the sole bulwark of freedom and human rights in the Middle East. And so instead of renouncing his earlier support for Obama and taking a stand for Israel when that embattled country needs it the most, he has opted to pretend that Obamas statement really wasnt all that bad, and that Jews and all supporters of Israel should relax and keep on loving Barack Hussein Obama.
I dont see this as the president throwing Israel under the bus, Foxman told Greg Sargent of the Washington Post. Hes saying with `swaps. Its not 1967 borders in the abstract. Its not an edict. Its a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.
Foxman was referring to Obamas statement that the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.
Foxman apparently believes that Obamas statement about the 1967 lines is the core of the problem that those who are appalled by Obamas speech have with it thus his emphasis that its not an edict, but simply a recommendation. He added that there is a danger that the 1967 marker, which was always there but has never been stated so directly, may become this years settlements issue. But, he repeated, its not an edict its not what he did with settlements.
In this Foxman overlooked what most mainstream media reports about Obamas speech also overlooked: that he wasnt calling for a return to the pre-Six Day War borders at all, but to new borders based on the 1967 lines, and creating two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine.
This would be even worse for Israel than a return to the 1967 lines. A Palestinian state that bordered on Israel, Jordan and Egypt while Israel bordered only on Palestine would mean a substantially reduced Israel, having been forced to cede much of its core territory to the Palestinian Arabs in exchange for the chimera of peace with what are in fact implacable and unappeasable jihadis. Abraham Foxman should have learned from the disastrous aftermath of Israels withdrawal from Gaza that territorial concessions to the Palestinian jihadis do not bring peace and never will bring peace. Instead, Foxman declared Friday that Obamas speech indicated to me that this administration has come a long way in better understanding and appreciating the difficulties facing both parties, but especially Israel in trying to make peace with the Palestinians.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu disagreed. Meeting with Obama at the White House on Friday, he emphasized that while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace it cannot go back to 1967 lines, because these lines are indefensible. Netanyahu didnt say it, but clearly he was not going to accept anything worse than the 1967 lines, either.
Apparently sensing that Obama was also preparing to back the spurious right of return for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Palestinian Arab refugees (who were not offered citizenship by any of the neighboring Arab states except Jordan), Netanyahu declared: The Palestinian refugee problem will have to be resolved within the context of a Palestinian state but certainly not within the borders of Israel. Thats not gonna happen. Everybody knows its not gonna happen. And I think its time to tell the Palestinians its not gonna happen.
Its noteworthy that Netanyahu thought it necessary to say this even though Obama did not mention the refugee problem in his Thursday speech. Netanyahu, unlike Foxman, can tell which way the wind is blowing in the White House, and has no illusions. But Foxmans persistent self-delusions showed through again in the statement he issued through the ADL, along with Robert G. Sugarman, the ADLs National Chair. Foxman and Sugarman declared: We welcome President Obamas compelling speech on the priorities for American policy in the Middle East. We applaud his strong outlining of the principles which motivate that policy, including supporting the universal rights of free speech, equality and religious freedom, opposing the use of force and political repression, and promoting political and economic reforms. These are a reflection of American values and promote American interests.
There is, however, no indication that the revolutions in the Middle East, which Obama spent quite some time hailing, will lead to regimes that will have any interest in protecting free speech; the freedom of peaceful assembly; freedom of religion; or equality for men and women under the rule of law. Instead, in country after country pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists seem to be gaining the upper hand, just as I predicted.
With similar blinkered vision and naivete, Foxman and Sugarman stated: We support the Presidents vision of a negotiated Israeli-Palestinian settlement with strong security provisions for Israel, and a non-militarized Palestinian state. We appreciate his direct rejection of a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state and his understanding that the Hamas-Fatah agreement poses major problems for Israel.
They didnt seem to notice or care that Obama had not made the dissection of Israel or the creation of a Palestinian state contingent upon the dissolution of the new ties between Hamas and Fatah, or their acceptance of a non-militarized state. His statement about their need to acknowledge Israels right to exist was ambiguous enough to satisfy (or enrage) both sides.
And so if the aftermath of this speech follows the pattern of earlier attempts to bring peace to the Middle East, the Israelis will be forced to make genuine concessions in exchange for Palestinian promises that will quickly be broken although no one will be holding them accountable for that.
So it goes, and so it will go, until the jihadis destroy Israel utterly, or someone in Washington gets a clue. Whichever comes first.
Abe Foxman should have noticed the pattern of Israeli concessions and Palestinian broken promises years ago, and started alerting the Jewish people and all friends of Israel to it. Then he would never have issued his statement of support for Obama Friday. Indeed, he never would have supported Obama in the first place.
Torah Jews will replenish the Jewish population while these wing nuts sing paeans to moslems.
Foxman’s Obama Tingle is really flaring up! The boy needs to do something to take care of that.
We should be no more surprised than Catholics who support democrat abortionists. Most American Jews and many Israeli Jews do not support Israel, and if they do it is a far second place to their true religion of liberalism.
“One wonders why Foxman even bothers with this dangerous fools errand.”
He’s buddies with the US envoy negotiator paired with Mitchell, trying to save the guys job.
0bama is actually being Great to Israel... he is so enamored with Israel, that he is advocating for two of them! What’s better than one Israel? Israel North and Israel South!
Liberalism is mental disorder. Liberal American Jews would freely walk into the ovens if Obama demanded it of them and they would likely insist on paying for the gas as well.
True liberals support Israel, leftists don’t.
Foxman: The “Uncle Tom” of liberal Jews.
I’m a conservative Jew and I despise liberal sell-out Jews like Foxman.
Join the Republican Jewish Coalition:
Anyone who wishes to send a message of support to Netanyahu and the Brave Israeli people in this moment of grave danger and betrayal by Obama may do so via:
The same rationale applies to liberal plantation blacks and the third world mindset of most Hispanics.
For the leftwingers, liberalism trumps ethnicity.
You mean, “Stay in the ghetto.”
Liberals are pathetic—no matter their religion, ethnicity, sex, height, weight, hair color, eye color...
Liberal Jews who vote for Obama deserve the Sharia Law he intends to bring about.
Thanks for posting this. Foxman is really getting on my nerves. How did he get this position, as head of the ADL? Does he hold it for life? Is there any chance of replacing him? It’s hard to believe this is the best the ADL can do.
The liberal Jews in America will never turn away from liberalism because they dispise Evangelical, Conervative Christians more than anything. Pity, because we Bible blatherers mean them no harm. Obama, on the other hand, means Israel much harm.
That isn’t true. They could care less about Evangelicals exceptfor their support of Israel. They don’t care about Judaism either. They consider right-wing Jews to be their enemy as much as any other right-wing group.
Kapo Abe Foxman
I just tried (unsuccessfully) to use the internet archives to confirm, but I am 99% that the ADL’s FIRST response to Ø’s 1967 comments was to applaud AND mention their support for the pre-1967 borders.
After I (and I am sure hundreds if not thousands of others) contacted them to find out if they would also be marketing yellow stars, the statement was revised and there is no literal mention of 1967 in the one currently online,
Foxman is quite the capo. The man has shi’tre for brains. He would’ve said in 1935, “Give Hitler a chance”..
I dont see this as the president throwing Israel under the bus, he told me. Hes saying with `swaps. Its not 1967 borders in the abstract. Its not an edict. Its a recommendation of a structure for negotiations.
Foxman said that the broader characterization of the speech as anti-Israel by some on the right is also off base, citing its insistence on Israels right to self-defense, its opposition to the Palestinian statehood at the United Nations, and other matters.
The speech indicated to me that this administration has come a long way in better understanding and appreciating the difficulties facing both parties, but especially Israel in trying to make peace with the Palestinians, Foxman said.
Foxman did offer a nuance: He said he doesnt fault Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for raising concerns about Obamas decision to articulate the 1967 lines as American policy.
There is a danger that the 1967 marker, which was always there but has never been stated so directly, may become this years settlements issue, Foxman said. By this he means that he worries that making it central to official U.S. policy could turn it into a core make-or-break issue, just as settlements were, which could make peace tougher to attain.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a vocal defender of Israel, commended Obama in a statement for his his strong affirmation of the deep and unshakeable relationship between the United States and Israel, and expressed support for his vision of a negotiated Israeli-Palestinian settlement with strong security provisions for Israel and a non-militarized Palestinian state. Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director stated, We applaud his strong outlining of the principles which motivate that policy, including supporting the universal rights of free speech, equality and religious freedom, opposing the use of force and political repression, and promoting political and economic reforms. These are a reflection of American values and promote American interests.
Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), for example, strongly condemned what it regards as forcing Israel to retract to Auschwitz 1967 indefensible armistice lines. The statement added, President Obama is either extraordinarily naïve or extraordinarily hostile to the Jewish state of Israel, despite his claims of commitment to Israels security. One cannot claim to care about a neighbours young children while renting out rooms to child predators.
ADL and NJDC: Obamas Anti-Israel Garbage Doesnt Stink
Abraham Foxman, Democratic Party Judas Goat, puts Obamas Re-election Above ADLs Mission
National Jewish Democratic Council (National Judenrat Democratic Kapos) Join in Whitewash
by Bill Levinson
A Judas goat is a tame animal whose function is to lead other herd animals into a meat packing factory to be processed. A Judas goat has no choice but ADLs Abraham Foxman and the NJDCs David A. Harris and Marc R. Stanley are in contrast shameless political prostitutes who place the well-being of the Democratic Party above that of the United States, its allies, and even the Jews they claim to represent. We have four words for you, Harris, Stanley, and Foxman: NOT IN OUR NAME.
Abraham Foxmans Anti-Semitism enabling and Denial League (ADL)
(1) In 2006, Abraham Foxman used ADLs Jewish identity to rescue MoveOn.org from what would probably have been total destruction (it was crippled by having to take down its prized Action Forum) for welcoming anti-Semitic and other forms of hate speech at its Action Forum. Even though it was proven to ADL that Eli Pariser lied about MoveOn not knowing about the hate speech and even about removing more than a small fraction of it, ADL allowed the following statement to stand:
ADL is pleased with Mr. Parisers responsiveness to our concerns and believes the matter has been resolved satisfactorily.
We still have on record our E-mail to ADL that proved MoveOn lied about removing the hate speech, but Foxmans ADL made itself a party to MoveOn.orgs lie by continuing to post the statement shown above. In other words, it was more important to Foxmans ADL to protect a Democratic anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic hate group than it was to oppose anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry.
(2) Abraham Foxman legitimized the vicious racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton by issuing a joint statement with him. There are dozens of respectable African-American civil rights leaders with whom Foxman could have issued this statement but he chose instead the leader of an organization that shouted racial and anti-Semitic epithets along with arson threats at a Jewish-owned store (Freddys Fashion Mart), and also the same individual who falsely accused white people of raping Tawana Brawley the way the Ku Klux Klan once falsely accused Black men of raping white women so it could lynch itself a few Negroes.
(3) We cannot say that Abraham Foxman engaged in outright denial of the Armenian Holocaust because he acknowledged that Armenians were in fact murdered by Turks but he nonetheless did his best to prevent Congress from speaking of the annihilation of the Armenians.
National Jewish Democratic Council aka National Judenrat Democratic Kapos
(1) NJDC also used its purportedly Jewish identity to whitewash MoveOn.orgs hate speech against Jews, Catholics, and others. Jewish voters should take comfort in knowing that MoveOn.org is not a haven for anti-Semitism and the organization will renounce and remove any postings of the sort. Leave it to Republicans to not allow the truth to get in the way of campaigning. Sincerely, Ira Forman Executive Director National Jewish Democratic Council. Ira Forman and the truth have very little in common, and his successor David A. Harris seems to be following right in his footsteps.
(2) NJDC published an anti-Christian hate video that portrays Christian ministers, Jesus, and the Cross in a This is the Enemy context.
(3) NJDC published anti-Semitic Jews as Christian-haters material to further undermine relations between Jews and Christians.
(4) NJDC published a blood libel of the Christian computer game Left Behind: Eternal Forces. The blood libel consists of the knowingly false accusation that the game encourages players to kill anybody who wont convert to Christianity.
(5) NJDC condemned Mitt Romney for appearing at the museum of a long-dead EX-antisemite (Henry Ford, who retracted and repudiated The International Jew) while saying nothing about Barack Obamas ongoing appearances with a live and unrepentant one (Al Sharpton). NJDC in fact accused those who call Obama out for the latter are engaging in sinat chinam (baseless accusations):
http://www.coachisright.com/while-american-jews-cheer-him-on-obama-is-killing-israel-they-love-socialism-more-than-israel/ Next Foxman will DEMAND Obama install working toilets on “the trains.”
Real Jews (not the JINOs at “All Democratic Liberals”) to Foxman: Go to Hell!
Obama (may his name be blotted out) has staked out the Paleoswinian’s negotiating position as our official policy - this is not something that even a neutral mediator (which implies moral equivalence between the parties to a dispute) would do, let alone a supposed friend. But since Foxman and the other worshippers of Leftism cannot betray their false god and its current prophet, he and they continue what they have always done, betraying the Jewish people. He would have made a very good Kapo.
Foxman is a little fat putz.
I increasingly relate to conservative blacks who watch wuth horror as self-appointed crooks like Al Sharpton claim to represent the black peoples.
Thanks (that wasn’t it - will teach me to save / copy / screen shoot the enemies’ first responses...).
