Skip to comments.Obama and Israel: Carom Shot?
Posted on 12/04/2012 7:55:45 AM PST by Nachum
The Israeli press is reporting that The United States was behind the summoning of Israeli ambassadors by several European nations, Israeli sources with close ties to US administration officials said Monday. The European move is essentially an American move, one official said. The Brits asked the Americans how to act. The same story quotes an Israeli official saying The Europeans got the green light to respond with extreme measures . . .
No proof is offered and proof in these circumstances will be hard to produce. But the story has a great deal of logic behind it. The Obama administration has denounced the Israeli decision to build several thousand additional housing units in Jerusalem and the West Bank. In my experience, when we distance ourselves from Israel the Europeans distance themselves more; when we criticize Israel, they double down and criticize more, and more harshly. Is there any sport that most European foreign ministries enjoy more than denouncing what they view as Israeli aggression, expansion, discrimination, persecution? If they perceive the dimmest green light from Washington, they are off to the races.
The White House will be more restrained, at least in public. In private, the real emotions about Prime Minister Netanyahu and the government of Israel emerge, as they did last weekend in widely reported remarks by Rahm Emanuel to the U.S.-Israel policy conference called the Saban Forum. (Yes, the mayor of Chicago is no longer White House chief of staff, but literally no one believes his remarks were distant from the opinions of his former boss.) One can just imagine what is being said to egg on the Europeans.

The One “summoned”, and now they ask his opinion before acting.
And Mayor Emmanuel acting in concert on behalf of the Power of Cook County.
Not to mention the Obama Admin scheming to get rid of Netanyahu in the upcoming elections
Europeans as a whole, loathe and despise the Jews who were so much a part of their national fabrics for centuries before the formation of the nation of Israel in 1948, and thought themselves well rid of those Jews who had not been sent to extermination camps, by displacing them to Israel.
Actually, this became the formal end to the diaspora that had been directed at the Jewish people a couple of millennia before. Wherever they went, Jews were treated as second-class, and little more than servants in many walks of life. But there were legions who broke out of the constraints of the societies into which they were born, and managed, by sheer dint of will, to enter and excel at many professions and busimess enterprises, eventually becoming the “bankers of Europe”, putting up funds for various princes or kings to undertake enterprises of their own. On many occasions these banking houses would be funding BOTH sides of a border conflict, not because they wanted one side or the other to win out permanently, but because kings and princes had such magnified egos, they did not question the sources of the funding for the wars in which they engaged, which was ultimately quite profitable for the banking house.
Because of these banking houses, “money-grubbing Jew banker” became the stereotype for ALL Judaism, whether the simple common Jew was part of it or not. Most of these more modest Jews thought themselves to be good subjects of the country of their nativity, and honestly believed in its aims and objectives as congruent with their own. But the great breakdown of the economic order following the First World War sent the defeated countries scurrying for a scapegoat, and as the citizen Jews looked a lot like the anarchistic Jews and the wealthy remote heads of banking houses, and were also much easier to capture and hold, the wrath of virtually all of Europe was turned on the resident Jewish populations, almost as strongly in Poland and France as it was in Germany. Less publicized, but just a virulent, was the anti-Jewish sentiment in what became Bolshevik Russia, where even under the Czars, the Jewish minority had suffered endless persecution. Stalin turned them into a slave race, their very existence dependent on his whim.
This last is surprising, in that a good many of the theorists that expanded and developed the International Communist movement were themselves Jews, though not religious practicing members of that community, but thoroughly secular. This cadre probably worked as hard to place their fellow Jews and many times, blood relatives, as much under the Soviet yoke, as the most militant of Cossacks. But by running under such protective coloration, they could and did penetrate much further into other nations as “refugees”, including the United States, thus the great number of Russian Jews in this country who are predisposed to the spread and adoption of Communist rule.
Communism has diminished, but it has been replaced by Islamic militant jihadists, and curiously enough, there is a strong appeal to the Europeans for this new movement, in no small part because of the invasive occupation of European countries with the Muslim minorities.
The Europeans had always held contempt for the Jewish people, and here, suddenly there was a whole new population in their midst that shared their fear and loathing of the Jews.
The rest of the equation is easy.
They won't be minorities long. Demographic trends in Europe are patently clear. Indigenous populations, through birth control, abortion, and choice are rapidly reaching negative population growth. At the same time, Muslims are immigrating to Europe in greater numbers than before and they are reproducing like bunnies.
Eurabia is just a matter of time.
Hope all Israeli Ambassadors were briefed on the message to be returned to BO!
“Please tell your puppet master that we see his hand in this.”
Of course. Israel is in the way of the new world Islamicist caliphate obama is trying to build.
The complete Muslimization of Europe, short of a miracle, will be achieved within a generation.
They may connive a way to have Bebe voted out, but they’ll still have the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel to deal with.
And as the late Evangelist Oliver B. Greene from Greenville, SC used to say, “I’d rather stand on a mountaintop and play with forked lightning than to ever do anything hurtful to the Nation of Israel!”
Hashem willing for me !!!
“Israel accuses US of backing European settlement backlash”
In Kerala in southern india Jews have been there since 300 BC or so and were never treated as second-class citizens, leave along servants
Also, note that the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth, while not up to the same standard of welcoming as Kerala, did invite Jews in and granted them equal rights -- in fact more, because they were under personal protection of the King.
true -- and in England too.
Not completely true. Under the Czars the Jews had suffered endless persecution, but under STalin, they were not treated any worse than Stalin treated Russians or Poles or even his own Georgians -- the Bolshevik system advocated demicide just as much as the Nazi system advocated the genocide of Jews and Gypsies
