Why Israel Doesn't Trust Obama The U.S. is harder on its ally than on Iran's nuclear program.
WSJ ^ | 9/2/12 | editor

Posted on 09/02/2012 1:52:15 PM PDT by Nachum

Barack Obama is fond of insisting that he "has Israel's back." Maybe he should mention that to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

In remarks to journalists in London quoted by the Guardian, General Martin Dempsey warned that any Israeli attack on Iran would "clearly delay but probably not destroy Iran's nuclear programs." He also said economic sanctions on Iran were having an effect and needed more time to work, but that the good they were doing "could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely."

That’s because Iran would be doing the work that Obama agrees with.

His muslim, anti-Jew, anti-Christian agendas are quite obvious to anyone with their eyes open.

He wasn’t a member of “Trinity Church Chicago” for nothing.

There was a reason they celebrated 9/11, Jew-hating, promoted Calypso Louie and NOI, etc. etc.

But, a good portion of America is quite stupid when it comes to these things.

No wonder Netanyahu is actively trying to prepare for the worst.

Obama doesn't have their back - he has them by the back - and he's fixing to corn-hole them in short order!



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I am a great admirer of Netanyahu and the Jewish people. I work for a company headquartered in Israel after all.

I just hope Bibi holds off for a couple of weeks as I’m flying there on business tomorrow.

I am with Netanyahu on this one though. UP YOURS OBAMA!!!

Sure he has Israel’s back. He is painting a bullseye on it.

Israel attacking Iran prior to our election would be a huge mistake. First of all, Israel would not get a full force commitment by the U.S. during a strike (and possibly resistance from the U.S.). Secondly, 0bama could gain in his re-election bid which would be disastrous in the long term for Israel.

Not really. 0bama’s ideology requires only two jackasses coupled to the wagon and no one steering it.

Good point. The convention will be a showcase of misfits pimping for the regime. How anyone can fall victim to their psy ops is beyond my comprehension. Thank the schools for intentionally dumbing-down our youth. I for one, will remain wise.

When Israel takes out Iran’s nuclear facilities, it won’t be carried live by the media.

And, afterwards, Iran is unlikely to make a major public announcement of what happened, just as Iraq and Syria didn’t when THEIR nuclear sites were attacked by Israel. Why call attention to such embarrassing setbacks?

And Israel will not announce its successful operation, because Israelis are adults; they don’t do ‘’Mission Accomplished!’’

Several days after the operation, the news will leak out. But if it happens while Obama is in office, don’t expect the MSM to carry it widely, because it will be an embarrassment for Obama, and our anti-Israel MSM does not want to dwell on good news for Israel.

For all we know, Iran’s nuclear sites have already been hit by now.

If that were true, Obama would want them to attack.

Not true. 0bama's religion (Islam) trumps his successes. In 0bama's world, here are his priorities:

1) Islam
2) Himself
3) United States

Come on. Nothing is more important to Obama then Obama. You should know that by now. And that will become more apparent as we get closer to his losing election.

Domestically, you are correct. On world issues, Islam trumps himself. Fair?

When Obama has exasperated all other possibilities for winning this reelection, Islamism and Marxism will take a back seat. His handlers all know he will lose badly, but Obama still thinks his superhuman skills will save the day. His handlers are trying to prevent the landslide and save some of the Democratic Party. He will be approached with a last minute gambit that will cater to his immense ego.

At any rate, the House of Saud wants Iran gone. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is normalizing relations with Iran. So Islam itself is split.

There was also a good reason the Israelis were celebrating the attacks on us on 11 SEP 2001. Jews are not universally our friends, or hadn’t you noticed how many of the people causing our nation problems are jewish? Many of them hold dual American-Israeli citizenship. Had you not noticed how many people in Obama’s administration are jews? Had you not noticed how much of the MSM is owned and controlled by jews? Had you not noticed how much of Hollywood, Wall Street, and the “too big to fail” financial institutions are run by jews? Had you not noticed how the Federal Reserve is run by jews? Had you not noticed that the largest lobby in American politics is AIPAC? Had you not noticed that jewish organizations are at the forefront in the fight to open our borders and grant citizenship universally to anyone? Barbara Spectre is pleased that you did not notice. Are you noticing a trend here? I sure have. But, speak out and you are labeled. I’m too old and pissed off to care what label some jackass wants to attribute to me.

Regarding Israel as a state, apartheid was “bad” in South Africa, but it is “good” in Israel. How’s that, again? Have you actually read any of the history of the founding of Israel? Thanks to the internet, we can now read those documents. I especially like the one wherein the author specifically states how they stole land from the Palestinians. Most Orthodox jews will tell you Israel should not exist as a state at all.

I was talking about Obama’s “pastor” and buddies celebrating 9/11, not Israelis.

You are correct. However, I chose to read your entire post, which contained references to others, specifically jews, as if jews are somehow victims in current events. Since most people seem to universally give jews a pass for anything they do today, however nefarious, I choose to comment on that segment of your post as relates to your assertion that muslims were cheering for terrorism, as if they were the only ones. I further chose to expand on that idea and tried to get you and others to think and look beyond the deeply-ingrained pro-jew propaganda being spewed from every avenue.

If a man is kicked out of one bar, the problem may lie with the bar. If a man is kicked out of 100 bars, it probably is not the bar that has a problem.

The truth is often unpopular.

I will not wage war on the Jew nor the nation of Israel that God has restored by His hand.

Doesn’t mean everything they do is correct but God has already warned that those that war against them He will cut into pieces (Jerusalem) and then He will fight against the nations that come against Israel in the Last Days.

That’s good enough to tell me to keep my hands off Israel and the Jew.

No, you came onto the thread and started hammering Israel and the Jew in your first post to me.

That’s where Obama and Jeremiah Wright are.

Yes, I will have obedience to God regarding Israel.

Don’t try to sell Israel-9/11 to me.

You’re pinging the wrong guy for that.
