Skip to comments.Israelís worst frenemy (Obama, of course)

Woe is me. President Obama claims he is the best friend Israel ever had in the White House, yet doesnt get any respect. This is no Rodney Dangerfield act. He is deadly serious.
Every single commitment I have made to the state of Israel and its security, I have kept, he told The Atlantic magazine. Why is it that despite me never failing to support Israel on every single problem that theyve had over the last three years, that there are still questions about that?
The question deserves an honest answer, though the truth is not likely to cut through the fog of presidential self-pity. A man who compares himself to Lincoln, Gandhi, King, Mandela and FDR isnt the sort to welcome disagreement.

And that is the heart of his problem. Obama is certain he knows whats good for Israel. Given his record and the Iranian threat, its an impossible sell.
He came into office thinking Israel was the obstacle to Middle East peace; three years later, his policies are producing more signs of war than peace. The Palestinians wont negotiate for their own state because the president foolishly urged them to make a ban on Israeli settlements a precondition.
He was wrong from the git-go, and still is. But facts dont stand a chance. As a Democrat who speaks to Obama about the Mideast told me, he has a stubborn worldview.

Obama’s claim to be Israel’s friend after betraying it again and again would be comical if it weren’t such a destructive lie.
Obama is one sick and evil bastard.
You just know Netanyahu has to have a barf bag handy in his back pocket every time he has to meet with Obummer.
He’s no more and no less Israel’s friend than ZBigniew Brzezinski and Jimmuh Carter have been over the years.
How’s that been working out?
With a friend like Obama, who needs enemies?
As usual, Obama - the worst and most medacious president in the entire history of the United States - is once again fulla sh*t.
As a Democrat who speaks to Obama about the Mideast told me, he has a stubborn worldview.
As they say, you can deny reality but you can’t
deny the results of denying reality.
Yes he does. I would add that his stupid, stubborn worldview is getting Americans killed.
