Obama Attempts to Justify Not Visiting Israel as President
Arutz Sheva ^ | 28/10/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 10/28/2012 3:48:58 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

In an interview with NBC News late last week, President Barack Obama attempted to justify why he has not visited Israel since becoming president.

"The truth of the matter is, there are a number of countries I didn't visit,” Obama said. “I visited Israel just a couple of months before I was president."

"Given how important I think the situation in the Middle East is and our partnership with Israel, which is stronger than it’s ever been, when I go to Israel, I want to make sure that we are actually moving something forward,” the president continued.

While Obama did not elaborate on what he meant by “moving something forward,” it is likely that he was referring to peace negotiations, which have been deadlocked during his presidency.

The Romney campaign fired back with a statement calling Obama's Middle East foreign policy a "failure."

"After promising to make peace a top priority, the president sought to place ‘daylight’ between the United States and Israel, and failed to engage in the peace process," said Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg. "His excuse for not visiting Israel is that ‘there are a number of countries’ he ‘didn't visit.’ But President Obama fails to recognize that Israel isn’t just any other country — it is our closest ally in the Middle East. As President, Mitt Romney’s first overseas trip will be to Jerusalem, and under a Romney Administration, the world will never question America’s solidarity with Israel.”

Most muslims in leadership positions don’t visit Israel to show support for Israel and the Jews.

Just sayin’.

What? Move what ‘something forward’?

Like a 7-year peace deal dividing Israel which allows for a 3rd Temple in Jerusalem?

Sorry /rant

BS Obama. Why don’t you just go ahead and tell the truth for once and admit you’re Muslim, hate Israel, and are an ally of the very nations that commit terrorist acts against them and the U.S. Obama is a traitor!

What? He never visited "Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". Or Equatorial Guinea. Or St. Kitts & Nevis (birthplace of Alexander Hamilton). Yeah, golfing and partying were higher priorities.

BTW has this schmuck uttered a single peep about all of the Christians getting killed in Nigeria? Or would that upset CAIR?

He didn’t go to Israel because he favors standing with the ME instead of our true ally there.

He didn’t go to Israel because he treated BiBi with huge disrespect and he knows it.

Obama got on his pulpit in Cairo and let the Muslim world where he stood.

Glad he didn’t come after what happened in Egypt. He would have destoryed Israel.

"Given how important I think the situation in the Middle East is and our partnership with Israel, which is stronger than it’s ever been, when I go to Israel, I want to make sure that we are actually moving something forward,” the president continued.

So he openly admits that he moved nothing forward in the Middle East in four years. Funny how the MSM missed that. Hm.

He doesn’t want to take the chance, now, of Netanyahu being able to reciprocate the treatment he received from Obama. Obama can’t take it...he’s a wimp.

“when I go to Israel, I want to make sure that we are actually moving something forward,”


Following that logic, the reason he did not go to Israel is that in 3.75 years, he has not been able to move anything forward.

This from the same man who claims our relationship with Israel is better than it’s ever been?

Just another lie.

Keep this in mind regarding Obama - Benjamin franklin is noted for this quote - “he who is good at making excuses is seldom good at anything else”.

obama never intended to visit Israel, it is against his Muslim values and it would offend his Muslim supporters and made him a critic for being an apostate muslim. It is bad enough he claims he became a christian. but christians can see the fruit that he is not bearing because of his false allegations that he became a christian at reverend Wright’s church. The oddity is that reverend wright is not a christian but a black liberation theology adherent which is based upon marxism.

The Kenyan traitor hates the state of Israel as much as he hates the British. It is disgraceful for a U.S. President to stab longtime allies in the back like he’s done.

Election day can’t come too soon.

I doubt the sincerity of any alleged convert from Islam to Christianity who keeps his Muslim name. The same holds true for the “Green Prince”. Not meaning to dictate Christianity to Christians, but some things should at least not be ignored.

He hates Israel, and he hates Jews( Black Liberation Theology syndrome for two decades) and in his wet dreams VERBALIZED back to 1967 borders. Obama has a lot of hate inside him for a Nobel Joke whiner.Heck he hates his half white body.
