Obama to Israel: You're On Your Own
wsj.com ^

Posted on 09/11/2012 8:24:44 PM PDT by tsowellfan

Does President Obama want Israel to bomb Iran before the election? If we had more faith in this Administration's competence, we'd be tempted to think so.

Both publicly and behind the scenes, Administration officials have insisted they oppose a unilateral Israeli strike for many reasons...

Barry’s buddy, Dave is more important to him than the people of Israel.

Someone years ago told me that the end would be nigh when the last country turned against Israel, God’s chosen.
It appears the USA elected a president that has turned against Israel.
God have mercy on those who are in His care and those who hopefully can be brought into the fold before the end.

Israel’s on her own - Russians make threats about situation and Russian ships are shown at the DNC Meeting in Charlotte - as a salute to vets. Check out the Russian ships:

I’m not one of those who suspects every democrat or evil leader in the world to be the anti-christ but I’ll tell you lately I’ve wondered about Obama.

Obama has turned against Israel....On Nov. 6 the American people will decide if the USA will turn against Israel.

A vote for 0bama is vote against God and Israel.

To tell a small but extremely well armed nation, that is surrounded by enemy states and has been under attack since its inception, that they’re on their own is tantamount to painting them into a corner. They’ll take out the threat because they have no other option. Consequences? At least they’ll still be around to address them as they arise.

Even this administration isn’t so idiotic as to not understand this. They want it to happen.

Hear, hear.

I’m TRULY frightened. Frightened for my children, frightened for our nation.

My elderly, wise mother keeps reminding me that “it is written” and “beyond my control”. It’s tough, though, with uncertainty. I just hate that she has to witness what we are going through (and who she knows is left behind). I hate to say it.......but I’m glad my father is not seeing what this nation is becoming....as he passed when I was in college. He worried THEN about some of the “warning signs” he was seeing.

Claiming to have converted from Islam to Christianity MUST only be a front. He’ll come out with the truth after he retires from this present job.

He will claim that he had to do it in order to get this job in “islamophobe” America. I think the muzzies already know this to be true. Conversion is just NOT accepted in their culture and one who has done so does not travel in those areas because of that lack of intolerance.

Obama keeps poking the voters in the eye; like the Catholics with the HHS mandate;the Jews with his open hostility and anti-semitism; and Christians of all stripes with his support for gay marriage. The ridiculous platform fiasco in Charlotte last week is another one.

Last Wednesday evening I saw a response on this board by a Christian man who had just returned from a meeting at his church (bible study, perhaps). He said everyone there who had seen the DNC vote on the platform was angry with the insult to God and to Israel over the Jerusalem plank. He mentioned that they all said they were going to tell their friends, especially when they met them at church on Sunday!! So, if that in fact happened, we ought to see Obama’s numbers begin to sink as the people become more acquainted with Obama’s true beliefs.

I really cannot for a minute believe Obama will win this election.

Obama is not the Anti-Christ, but he could be the precursor to him, by making world conditions so bad that only an outside power would have hopes of trying to fix things.

How does one with such a high profile position explain their “conversion” from Islam to Christianity and avoid the lack of intolerance from those people who cannot even tolderate a cartoon?

What a despicable excuse for a leader! He's not only in over his head as POTUS, he'd be in over his head as the County Dogcatcher.

This is one of our major allies we're talking about here. Of course, he hasn't treated the Brits well either - the longest standing democracy in the world, our "cousins" in WWII and the Cold War, and our staunchest allies over the last century, a century of cataclysmic conflict.

When the Israelis are gone, who will be left to stand for Freedom and the values of Western Civilization?

No one! Show me it will be otherwise! With this batch of Commies and appeasers in power we're doomed! Turn their asses out this November or kiss your Freedom goodbye!

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)

Obama will simply not allow Israel under any circumstances attack Iran prior to the election. There is simply no consensus for another Mid East conflict for the war weary American people who simply do not believe that Iran is a real threat to the United States. Obama knows that in the event of an Israeli attack, the big blue water ships of the American navy are at grave risk in the narrow confines of the Persian Gulf. It would be a political and possibly a strategic disaster if any of those ships were to be lost. Despite sanctions and rhetoric, Obama has concluded that Israel will just have to live with a nuclear Iran and hope the mullahs are as deterred by mutually assured destruction as the Russians were. This defacto American policy as one may imagine is immensely disconcerting to Israel. It is very doubtful that Israel acting alone could be strategically effective and there is no doubt that Obama is making it very clear that the US will not get involved in a unilateral Israeli attack.

You are making two assumptions:

That there will be a fair election.

Yes, this is fulfillment of prophesy. All the nations of the earth will turn against Israel.

Now that Husein had turned our nation against the Jews everything is set for nuclear Armageddon.

This is what I’ve been thinking, too. If he isn’t the AC, then he’s preparing the way for him. That’s not a far-fetched idea, either; he goes against God, Christianity, and Judaism while staunchly standing by Islam. If scholars are right and the AC comes out of the ME, then this guy’s carrying the water for him.

“Obama To Israel: You’re On Your Own”

It’s worse than that. The scuttlebutt is that he’s getting ready to write the Egyptians a check for either one billion:
http://www.caintv.com/EgyptneedssubmarinesObamawants-395
or 1.5 billion American tax dollars: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/03/screw-democracy-obama-administration-will-give-muslim-brotherhood-1-5-billion-in-us-aid/
so the Islamic Brotherhood can buy two German U-boats. And Zero just can’t spare the time to meet with Netanyahu ...

If it’s true, Israel should be worried. With friends like us, who need enemies?

In the news reports on FOX, they kept repeating the phrase that the mob was chanting, “There is no other God but Allah,” and I kept thinking of the Democrat convention and the delegates voting against God and Israel three times.
