Obama in NY says Israel is most important ally
Politico ^ | 11/30/11 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 11/30/2011 5:12:14 PM PST by ColdOne

The AP reports that President Obama tried to assuage Jewish supporters during a fundraising stop in New York hosted by a prominent Jewish donor, who had been billed among prospective fundraisers ahead of time as a chance for a "substantive and candid" discussion about concerns in the Jewish community.

Chief among them has been Israel and lingering questions among some Jewish voters about the administration's commitment to Israel. Continue Reading

When the fundraiser's host, American Jewish Congress chairman Jack Rosen, mentioned "concerns" about the ties between Israel and the U.S., Obama declared, "We don't compromise when it comes to Israel's security."

According to the AP report, Obama said no ally surpasses Israel in importance to the U.S., which Rosen followed up by saying the president's administration has been the most supportive ever of Israeli security.

Obama says to Egyptian Foreign Minister Abul Gheit "that he would show the Moslem world what he would do with Israel." Source.

And with the Arab Spring...he is doing just that!

Perhaps they should get Netanyahu's or even Shimon Peres’ opinion on Obama being a strong ally of Israel.

Democrat Jews need to face the sad reality that the group now controls the Democrat Party, the New Left, has left the Jews behind and turned their backs on them.

In fact, a plurality of the virulently anti-semtic New Left agrees that “the Jews” are in need of “iFinal Solution V2.0” and agree that the Palestinians are just the group to get the job done

Israel is Obama’s most important ally the same way that Reverend Wright was his spiritual mentor - as long as convenient and no longer.

The man is an idiot. Even when he tries to outright lie to ‘be nice’, he is still a fool.

And the Jews supporting this grinning jackal are bigger fools, no matter how rich, and elite, and superior, they think they are.

Canada? Heck, last year it was FRANCE that was our greatest ally.

There is nothing that this guy would not say to gain money, power and votes.

Hussein: Wolf in Sheep's Clothing!

No, really, Israel...I am your friend. What? Supported the overthrow of your ally and neighbor Mubarak for the Muslim Brotherhood? Well, sure, but...what? Engineered the overthrow of the tired old bastard Qadafi for the mobs? Well, sure, but...what? Gave money to Hamas as one of my very first acts in office? Well, sure, but....what? Condemned you for building apartments in Jerusalem? Well, sure, but...what? Attended the party of a Jew hater? Well sure, but....what? Went to a church that honors Louis Farakhan? Well, sure, but....what? Demanded you go back to the 1967 borders, when you were attacked by the Arab world? Well, sure, but...what? Did nothing when terrorists blew up a gas pipeline going to your nation from Egypt? Well, sure, but...

How much proof do you need, Israel? Barack Hussein Obama is not your friend. He will turn his back on you and in fact give aid and comfort to your sworn enemies.

If Hussein had his way, Saddam Hussein would still be paying terrorist bombers $25,000 to kill Israeli teenagers eating pizza. If Hussein had his way, the nation of Israel would have indefensible borders.

Hussein gives lip service to our friendship. Just like, two or three weeks before the uprising in Cairo began, he sat with Mubarak in the White House and spoke of friendship. He will throw Israel under the bus, too, if given the chance.

Next November, we hope to defeat him and not allow him to hurt our alliance any more.

Well, Israel is not an “important” ally. Much too small for that. Obama, as usual, is pandering. That said, Israel is a state that shares our values and that can be very helpful in the struggle against Islamist terror.

Yesterday there was another thread started with a short NY Post article referencing this fund raiser hosted by Jack Rosen. You didn't have to be clairvoyant to predict that Obama would say there what Politico now reports him as having said.

These Jewish 'Rat fatcats in attendance are so darn gullible and naive, if indeed they really care about the future of Israel. They are probably more interested in crony capitalism and benefit financially from a cozy relationship with Obama's administration.

Democrat Jews need to face the sad reality that the group [that] now controls the Democrat Party, the New Left, has left the Jews behind and turned their backs on them.

Well put. And this is nothing new, it's been becoming more and more apparent for decades.

Just compare the current crop of Republican presidential candidates (except Ron Paul, who is a neo-isolationist) with Obama on Israel. Or compare the two major parties' platform planks on the Middle East over the last several presidential election cycles.

The logical thing for these Democrat Jews to do is to quit the 'Rat party and come over to the GOP. But, like drug addicts, too many find it impossible to kick their habit of supporting a party that could ultimately destroy them.

Hopefully, the election of a Republican to the House in a historically Democrat district with a large Jewish population (NY-9) might be the beginning of a long overdue shift.

In the first pic, what do you think he’s looking at with the properly head covered Hillary? Not to suggest that a covering would be worn by Obama as a mark of respect. As I recall his campaign sold Obama kipas, doesn’t mean he wears one.
