Israel can't trust Obama
YNet News ^ | May 29, 2011 | Shoula Romano Horing

Posted on 05/29/2011 12:04:13 PM PDT by UniqueViews

When President Obama announced his support for the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines as the starting point for negotiations, he in effect adopted the PLO Phased Plan for the gradual destruction of Israel.

While Hamas adopted the position of destroying Israel in one step through constant armed struggle, the PLO, led by Fatah adopted in 1974 a new political method of achieving that goal through two steps. According to the plan, the first step is the establishment of a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders; the second step is the liberation of all of Palestine by destroying the Jewish state through armed struggle or through the "the right of return" of millions of Palestinians to Israel, thus demographically and democratically causing Israel to lose its Jewish majority and character.

Prime Minister Netanyahu came to Washington hoping to get Obama's help in derailing the upcoming vote in the UN in September recognizing a Palestinian state. But Obama's decision to publicly confront Israel again, with only few hours warning on the eve of Netanyahu's visit, further weakens and isolates Israel internationally, which in turn will help fast forward the vote at the UN General Assembly.

By now, most objective observers would agree that Obama‘s heart and sympathy lie with the Palestinian cause and if elected to a second term he will work hard to be the “father” of the Palestinian state at Israel’s expense.

Neither does Berlusconi

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/27/berlusconi-obama-g8-summit_n_867985.html?ncid=txtlnkushuff00000001

ROME — Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi has taken his claim that he is being persecuted by leftist judges to the G-8 summit, telling a clearly perplexed President Barack Obama that in Italy they represent “almost a dictatorship.”

His comments carried on Italian TV news broadcasts from the summit in Deauville, France, set off a barrage of criticism Friday from Italian magistrates and his political opponents.

Italians are used to such statements from Berlusconi, but Obama seemed surprised when Berlusconi approached him and said through an interpreter that his government has proposed a judicial reform because “we have almost a dictatorship of leftist judges.”

Well, in 2008 78% of Jewish voters said "screw Israel we don't care."

Thanks UniqueViews.
When [Zero] announced his support for the establishment of a [terrorist Arab squatter] state along the 1967 lines as the starting point for negotiations, he in effect adopted the PLO Phased Plan for the gradual destruction of Israel.
And the Hamas/PA alliance rejected what Zero offered, to boot!

It's not the number of voters-relatively small segments of population concentrated in relatively small areas-that are mostly safe for democrats. It's the vast $ they contribute to campaigns.

They have ushered in the destruction of Israel. Guess they got what they wanted. Their utter self-loathing of Israel and the USA never ceases to amaze me.

Good editorial, except that the writer gives too much respect and attention to what the UN may do in September. It's no secret that the declaration of a "Pali state" by the UN would not in of it itself change anything, other than perhaps cause even greater belligerency on the part of the Palis. But Israel will rightfully not give up any more land without a comprehensive negotiated peace, regardless of what the UN may declare. As there is no "peace partner" at present, such a UN resolution would only be used for propaganda purposes by the Palis and their Islamist terrorist allies.

Yes, it goes without saying that we will be voting Republican against Obama next year, but not all of the Republican presidential wannabees are exactly the same on their attitudes toward the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

I have been in Europe the past 3 weeks so what I have seen and heard of this is all from CNNinternational and what I could read when I had time.

The more I think about it, I have come to realize what about Obama’s speech bugs me the most. It is that he ‘gave’ something to the Palestinians and took from the Israelis, without taking anything from the Pals. To have been more balanced he could have added something about resettling Arab refugees outside of Israel. That would have helped push the two parties together.

Instead, he took from Israel, twice. First he took the settlement issue (last year) and by insisting that Israel stop building, for the first time the Pals took the issue as a precondition. It had never been a precondition before, for 20 years since Oslo, but then Obama made it one. He is more Palestinian than the Palestinians! Now he took from Israel a bargaining chip on the territory. He took nothing of any substance from the Pals other than complain about their deal with Hamas, which means nothing to them and only encourages them to take their case to the UN.

He is more Palestinian than the Palestinians!

That shouldn't shock anyone who knew about his background growing up in Muslim Indonesia, and later in Chicago hanging out with the likes of Rashid Khalidi and making alliances with Chicago's Arabs as a community organizer and state senator.

A good book about his Arabist sympathies and much more is Radical in Chief by Stanley Kurtz.

Obama's strategy [again and again] is to raise the stakes higher for Israel so he can do a "favor" and back down, while Israel "begs" him [and he's stuck with his arrogant hand-on-chin shi--ty attitude] to.

Obama's attitude toward Israel is a natural consequence of his biography:

(1) Lived four years in Muslim Indonesia as a boy with a Muslim stepfather.

(2) Attended a Muslim school for two of those years.

(3) Had Muslim roommates in college.

(4) Visited Muslim countries while in college, then Muslim relatives in Kenya.

(5) Law school admission at Harvard pushed by wealthy Muslim donor.

(5) Close personal relationships with the likes of Edward Said and Rashid Khalidi.

(6) Listened to Rev. Wright's anti-Israel pro-Pali sermons for 20 years.

(7) Etc., etc.

All quite natural. Then there’s power politics. There are more Arabs and Muslims than Jews in the world, and more Arab and Muslim countries belong to OPEC than Jewish countries, and Jews are relatively powerless, so you can do anything you want to them, and say anything you want about them, so long as you don’t upset the people who matter who like them, such as Christians, rich Jews of the non-self-hating variety, Hollywood types who don’t follow intellectual fashion and hate Israel or secretly hate Jews for various reasons to do with Hollywood culture, and people of good will and basic decency. On the other hand, you can’t leave them alone either. The Crocodiles might eat you second to last instead of last, if you don’t feed somebody to them, so why not hate Israel. Crocodiles just can’t get enough of us.

His association with the Muslim Brotherhood can be added to the list, in my opinion. His campaign association with Hamas; e.g., call centers in Gaza in 2008??

Yes. Obama is owned by Arab Muslims and is doing their bidding. We must not let him get another 4 years.

...Obama hates Israel because he IS a Muslim.

I would quibble with that characterization, since in the United States, a person's religion isn't determined by law, but rather by what a person says he or she is.

The only downside to this is that an American is not only free to follow whatever faith he professes to practice or none at all, but is free to deceive others as to what his faith is. Most often, deceiving others about one's faith is harmless to the society as a whole. But when the electorate is choosing among political candidates, especially the President of the United States, it has a right to know the truth about about all candidates' religious preferences, because of the possible impact that might have on the candidate's policy positions.

Obama said and still says he's a Christian. Since he has lied about so many other aspects of his personal life, many doubt him on that. But still, out of respect for the American tradition of religious freedom, we have to accept him at his word - but only in so far as that issue is concerned.

It's still be possible for one to be a Christian yet have an unusual affinity for the Muslim world.
