Skip to comments.Obama’s Real Record On Israel
Posted on 10/23/2012 6:05:30 PM PDT by markomalley
Wormwood and ashes; thats what it must be for Barack Obama to run for re-election under false pretenses. Barack Obama, friend of fracking! Apologize for America? No way! Wheres my lapel flag pin? Israel? Im her greatest supporter!
Obama has come a long way from the days when he palled around, as Sarah Palin put it, with Rashid Khalidi, delivering a tribute so explosive that it must never see the light of day. But what does Obama really think about Israel and her enemies? Actions speak louder than words. Anne Bayefsky of Eye on the U.N. went to the trouble of tabulating the real Obama record on Israel. And, no, it isnt just that he wouldnt meet with Netanyahu:
President Obama has never visited Israel during his time in office, despite having been as close as thirty minutes away in Egypt, and managing to go to Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Iraq.
President Obama told Jewish leaders in July 2009 that he was deliberately adopting a policy of putting daylight between America and Israel.
President Obama has legitimized the UN body most responsible for demonizing Israel as the worlds worst human rights violator. The president joined the UN Human Rights Council in 2009 and is now seeking a second 3-year term, despite Israels requests that he do the opposite.
President Obama made Israeli settlements the key stumbling block in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Starting in 2009 he chose to castigate Israel publicly, often, and in extreme terms at the General Assembly and the Security Council. The Palestinians took the presidents cue and ended direct negotiations until such time as Israel capitulates, even though the subject is supposed to be a final status issue.
President Obama treated Israels Prime Minister to a series of insulting snubs during his visit to the White House in March 2010.
President Obama cut a deal with Islamic states at a May 2010 meeting of parties to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, contrary to assurances given to Israel. He agreed to help convene a 2012 international conference intended to pivot attention towards disarming Israel and is currently negotiating the details of this diplomatic onslaught.
President Obama introduced in his September 2010 address to the General Assembly, a September 2011 timeline for full Palestinian statehood and membership in the UN, thus encouraging Palestinians to push the same unilateral move.
President Obama suggested in May 2011 that Israel use the 1967 borders as a starting point for negotiations knowing full well that Israel considers those borders to be indefensible, and that agreements require the border issue to be determined by the parties themselves.
President Obama created a global counter-terrorism forum in September 2011 and invited eleven Muslim states to join on the grounds that they were on the front lines in the struggle against terrorism. At the insistence of Turkey, he then denied entry to Israel.
President Obama told French President Nicolas Sarkozy in November 2011 when he thought he was off-mike that he regretted having to deal with Israels Prime Minister.
President Obama asked Congress in February 2012 to waive a ban on American funding of UNESCO. The ban had been imposed following UNESCOs recognition of Palestinian statehood and was consistent with U.S. law denying funding for any international organization that recognized Palestinian statehood in the absence of a peace agreement with Israel.
President Obama has indeed put daylight between American and Israeli policy on Iran. In August, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Dempsey said: our clocks are ticking at different paces and he wouldnt be complicit in an Israeli effort to destroy Irans nuclear facilities.
In September Secretary Clinton explained this divergence. In her words, the Iranian threat is existential only for Israel; only Israel is right in the bulls eye. President Obamas pro-Israel policy, therefore, is to wait past the point that the intended victim of the planned genocide believes is safe.
President Obama denied Prime Minister Netanyahus request to meet with him in September, despite the Iranian peril.
President Obamas UN ambassador, Susan Rice, didnt even attend the Israeli Prime Ministers speech to the UN General Assembly in September during which he made a plea for global attention to the Iranian threat.
And on Monday night, at the final debate, Governor Romney answered the question he was asked about what poses the greatest threat to our national security with a nuclear Iran, while President Obama responded terrorist networks.
Iran is the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism. An Iranian nuclear weapon will result in a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region of the world. And it will make the chance of nuclear weapons ending up in the hands of terrorists all the more likely.
So thats Obamas record so far. It is frightening to contemplate what he might feel free to do in a second term, when he has more flexibility.
And the Jewish vote still goes left. I just don’t get it. :-(

Pretty shameful of Obama who repeatedly snubbed Israel. I have a HS classmate who is Jewish and I saw on his FB page that he is supporting Obama for a 2nd term. But yet, he is fully Jewish but he supports a person who has a hatred towards Israel and I am 1/16th Jewish and I fully support Israel.
I’d say Obama is about halfway between the Russian Tzars and the typical “self-loathing Jew”. Just a guesstimate.
I’d say Obama is 100% a Muslim terrorist playing President and that Americans are the biggest fools in history.
Obama is doing all he can to shift the political winds in an ugly direction. The Muslim's playbook has been to enable the radical left and sit and watch the resulting carnage.
The REPUB's response has been to let Obama run on his record. Only a true liberal idiot would fail to see that Obama is a disaster.
If you wanted to destroy the United States, you could attack it in a Pearl Harbor style attack and get your rear end kicked
You could elect a game show host fraud as a liberal President.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The estimate here is that the national Jewish vote will be Obama 60%, Romney 40%. Romney, in other words, could wind up with a greater percentage of the Jewish vote than any Republican presidential candidate since Warren Harding in 1920.

Heck, I've got some US born cousins who live in Israel, and their parents who still live in the US, and the whole family is absolutely in love with Obama. I can't figure it out for the life of me.
