Op-Ed: Obama's True Colors
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/1/13 | Ron Jager

Posted on 01/12/2013 3:09:26 PM PST by Eleutheria5

....I depart and return to Israel with a sense of sorrow and dismay. For many, Israel remains a focal point of their lives enriching their collective sense of responsibility and Jewish identity. For these American Jews their frustration has only been reinforced by Obama's reelection only to be followed by him turning his back towards those very American Jews aligned with the White House, those Jews who wholeheartedly supported Obama's reelection yet now find themselves unable to defend his latest betrayal.

Two major supporters of Obama, former NY Mayor Ed Koch, a life long Democrat and Prof Alan Dershowitz have recently come out public and responded to Obama's intention to nominate former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.

Former Mayor of New York, Ed Koch, expressed deep disappointment with Obama's decision; to nominate former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense; “Frankly, I thought that there would come a time when he would renege on what he conveyed on his support of Israel,” said Koch, adding, “it comes a little earlier than I thought it would. “It’s very disappointing, I believe he will ultimately regret it,” Koch said, “and it undoubtedly will reduce support for him in the Jewish community, but I don’t think he (the President) worries about that now that the election is over.”

Koch stated that he believes the appointment will embolden Islamists and will be damaging to the U.S.-Israel relationship. Boker Tov! (You've seen the light, ed.)

Just a reminder, here's what Koch said in an election endorsement for the Obama campaign in October; " I am confident that President Obama will continue his unambiguous commitment to the Jewish state in his second term, building on his record of leadership by preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon."

Koch has gone senile. Dershowitz was born senile. I'm not disappointed in the least. Had negative expectations, and they've all been fulfilled even before the inauguration.

Dershowitz is a jerk. But I missed that endorsement statement of Koch’s when he made it. I would have thought he already knew better than that. There was plenty of evidence that Obama loves Muzzies and hates Jews and Christians.

I told people I knew in Israel in early 2008 that Obama would be bad for Israel. I think they assumed I was some kind of closet bigot.

Well, I'm not. I just paid attention to what Obama actually did and said, and the company he kept. His attitude towards Israel was obvious to anyone who looked past the toothy grin.

Koch used to call himself a “sane liberal”. Now he’s just a liberal.

Before I retired, I had many business associates who are Jews.

All of them were/are very smart when it comes to business or money.

But their politics has always been a mystery to me. How anyone can be that smart and at the same time so gullible is beyond my understanding.

That said, they voted for him even though his agenda as a Marxist/Islamic was obvious and so they deserve what they will get.

The problem is that the rest of us don’t deserve what we will get as the result of the fallout from the war that will soon occur in the Mid East.

I would also point out that all of the commotion over taxes, the deficit, the 2Nd Amendment, Israel, etc., no one is talking about what is about to happen between China and Japan.

And we have a treaty with Japan that requires that we be involved.

The Koch and Der Showbiz have always been droolers..
as are most of New York City Jewry..

They have always loved the very people that despise them...
Being Jewish is not about what you believe its about who you think you are..
Even if you aren’t..

Most blacks have been infected with this disease as well..
Many blacks are no blacker than they are white.. like Colon Bowle.. Obama.. Rev. Wright.. Alicia Keys..
and a few million other so-called blacks..

then you got yer so-called hispanics..

I love Israel but this is not only about Israel. This is about to be a national security nightmare.

I believe he will ultimately regret it,” Koch said, “and it undoubtedly will reduce support for him in the Jewish community, but I don’t think he (the President) worries about that now that the election is over.”

What a pathetic statement. The next time the socialists/communists put up another candidate they will be able to count on overwhelming Jewish and Black support.- tom

Hahaha How's that support workin' out for ya Ed?

Funny, we on the so-called "fringe right" saw this coming in '08 when the Kenyan ass-hat first ran.
How is it a veteran like Ed Koch is just waking up to the truth about Hussein now?

You’re the only one laughing. The only thing funny is Koch’s crass stupidity and fecklessness, and his genuine surprise that Obama is not what he thought he was. But we will all live with the consequences thereof, and that’s not funny.

That’s the way it always works. Everyone imagines that they’re only attacking the Jews/Israel. Then it turns out that they’re really after everyone. Too many examples in recent history alone.

"And we have a treaty with Japan that requires that we be involved."

I don't think any defense treaty would compel Obama to help Japan unless he otherwise wanted too. I think we are reaching the stage where Obama will only obey laws that he wants to and will make his own as he goes along.

What unambiguous committment to the Jewish state? Koch is just a party-line jackass, as is Dersh.

Anyone who supported and voted for 0bamugabe a second time deserves whatever misfortune it brings them. Unlike the rest of us.

Sounds like the people you knew had quaffed deeply from the cup of Communist quaquaversal lying .... lie to everybody, about everybody else, turn them all against each other.

You bigot, you! What are you, a southern-fried redneck chicken farmer? What ...... ? Well, you must be one of Them, the bigoted people who oppose Good People and Vanguard Comrades who Lead the People's Advance. FORWARD!

Except he doesn't want to stop at "just two" white people. Oh, no. Not with the vision of his buddy Bill Ayers's concentration camps dancing before his eyes.

Other than that, you just about nailed it. This guy is a can of maggots.

Since brevity is the soul of wit, here are some articles to assist in defining "WHO" and "WHAT" Obama IS.
But I disagree. No.
CORRECTION: Barack Obama, the first black Arab-American -Kenyan pResident of the United States.

“Frankly, I thought that there would come a time when he would renege on what he conveyed on his support of Israel,” said Koch, adding, “it comes a little earlier than I thought it would.“

That means the following was a big fat lie.

” I am confident that President Obama will continue his unambiguous commitment to the Jewish state in his second term, building on his record of leadership by preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.”

Amazingly, he isn’t even ashamed of his own perfidy. Koch now has zero credibility.

Koch? Koch can barely make it to the bathroom anymore. And Dershowitz? He’s just a moron. He actually believe that American Jews should be disarmed so that the next tyrannical government that decides they’re bad for business can herd them into the boxcars without a fight. No joke! Alan came out for big time “gun control” just a couple of days ago.
