Obama's Other 'Part-Time Foreign Policy Consultant' NYT's Thomas Friedman Mocks Israel,
Newsbusters ^ | 5/31/11 | Matt Hadro

NewsBusters previously reported that CNN's Fareed Zakaria had met with President Obama face-to-face to discuss foreign policy. Obama's other reported "source" of information on foreign policy, New York Times foreign affairs columnist Thomas Friedman, mocked Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday on CNN, and added that he should have dutifully obeyed the demands Obama outlined in his recent Mideast speech.

According to a May 11 New York Times article, Friedman was one of two foreign policy journalists "sounded out" by President Obama for information on foreign affairs. The other, CNN's Fareed Zakaria, has previously criticized Israel's prime minister for not agreeing to the Israeli-Palestinian borders laid out by Obama in his Mideast speech.

As an evangelical Christian, I’d expect a special place in hell for turncoats against God’s chosen people.

Well, Zacharia and Friedman have a lot in common: both are globalist liberals; neither has ever done anything of note; both are sophomoric writers; in each case their knowledge base is hollow and superficial. Neither one gives a shit about Israel.

Both have sold out. Probably more, but that about sums up their miserable existences.

“The World is Flat” Thomas Friedman is a flat head, or a flat tire, not sure which.

The thing that is both the most pathetic, while in the same instance, the most dangerous, is that these bat-guano crazy jackwagons actually believe this. Not going to end well at all, barring Divine intervention...

Perhaps so... There could easily be more than one fulfillment of "And I shall curse those who curse you"...
