Obama Turns His Back on Israel at the U.N.
Natinal Review Online ^ | 7/2/12 | Anne Bayefsky

Posted on 07/02/2012 1:54:27 PM PDT by Nachum

Today, at the United Nations, the Obama administration is turning its back on Israel. For the very first time, the U.N. Security Council has invited the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights to “brief” the Council specifically on the subject of Israel and the commissioner’s list of trumped-up sins. Though the U.S. is a veto-holding power, the extraordinary move has full American approval, despite the fact that the global soapbox will be handed to Navi Pillay, a notorious anti-Israel partisan.

Moreover, the American-backed action exposes President Obama’s profound weakness on the international stage. It turns out that the deal to sponsor an Israel-bashing session at the highest levels was a trade-off for having the high commissioner brief the Council on the subject of Syria.

The Security Council has not acted on Syria since an April 21, 2012, resolution, which sent unarmed observers over to watch the bloodshed. France wanted a high commissioner briefing on Syria to generate more noise. Council member Pakistan said no, unless Israel was on the chopping block, too. The Russians also said no, unless Libya was on the table. Russia seeks to use the mess in that country to obstruct stronger measures on Syria.

At this point in the diplomatic game, the Obama administration could have insisted that Israel not be sacrificed as the quid pro quo for paying due attention to the Syrian carnage. Instead, they caved, agreeing to a spectacle which casts Syria and Israel as moral equals.

Obama has always had his back to Israel. That should be obvious to anyone paying attention.

Yes, and everywhere else, too.

He is the only anti-Israel occupant of the Oval Office since the nation’s re-institution in 1948.

Ever wonder why video of his remarks at the birthday party of that spokesperson for the PLO wasn’t released by the L.A. Slimes?

Me too.

I still don’t understand this and doubtless never will; all I can tell you with certainty is something I noticed a couple decades ago: there’s a disproportionate number of Jew haters among people of the lie, and a disproportionate number of people of the lie among Jew haters.

Sounds like our Zero is feeling pretty frisky after his big win. So he's going to top it off with a round of one of his favorite games: humiliate and delegitimze Israel. Before the UN, if possible.

Considering that the lights have gone out in Washington, which I daresay would seem to indicate to me a certain amount of divine displeasure, a prudent man wouldn't tempt fate in this way.

But the prudent way isn't the Zero way. I'd say he's under the sway of another power.

If he turns his back on Israel he will discover that sin has consequences.
Last August DC had an earthquake
This week a giant wind blew out the power the same day as the SCOTUS ruling
And God says he is in the earthquake, wind, and fire.

If he was a true Christian he would know Jehovah God’s feelings about Israel. Christians better wise up. Obama is doing the devil’s work. God help him on the last day.

I do believe that Heaven was very, very displeased by the USSC ruling of this past Thursday and it is not surprising that the storm was very, very massive.

Doesn't matter. The Liberal Jew in this country HATES Israel and would be willing to shut the door on the gas chambers themselves right after they pull the lever and vote for his imperial majesty Comrade President Sheik Caliph Obama the First.

I had a strong feeling on Saturday morning that the devastation Friday night across the nation had something to do with Barack Obama doing something to harm Israel.

I'm not the least bit surprised at this article.

A lot more, IMO, than most Americans are willing to even admit to themselves or even consider about the need for this nation to repent and turn back towards GOD, before He decides to bring judgement on this rebellious country.

You have to wonder if maybe America’s Jewish vote will plummet to only 70% or so for Ubanga in the November election.
But then, there’s no accounting for collective IQ.

Ah yes, that vaunted ‘smart power’ they extolled that would make our enemies love us and flock to our side like groupies at a concert.
Can anyone tell me if it has worked yet?
Anyone?

Veto power applies to the substantive resolutions that the Security Council makes -- the things that "get voted out of committee" as it were and represent public judgments of the UN.

I'm not sure it applies to everything the Security Council does. Inviting or not inviting a speaker, hearing or not hearing a report, debating or not debating a resolution -- I don't think those are things one power could veto.

It’s time for the US and Israel to walk out of the UN. It’s obvious that the commie dirtbags want to destroy both nations.

“The American Jews will still vote for him.”

Not this one, and certainly not the ultra-Conservative Orthodox who have a serious problem with Obama’s homosexual agenda. (See the Bob Turner election in the New Yawk Collective.)

Liberal, secular Jews are no longer Jews. They’re Pseudo-Jews. You can’t be Jewish and cheer for homosexual “marriage”, abortion, or the rest of the Liberal Menu of Destruction.

In exchange for helping the Muslim Brotherhood take Syria and thereby surround Israel for the next war, we need to first screw Israel.

I hate Obama voting Jews. Seriously. I actually put up on a dating profile that I will not go out with any. I don't care who attractive or otherwise competent one may be.

“Obama has always had his BACKSIDE to Israel”
