Obama to Israelis: 'Put Yourselves in Shoes' of Palestinians
Breitbart ^ | 3/21/13 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 03/21/2013 4:28:34 PM PDT by Nachum

On Thursday, President Barack Obama spoke in Jerusalem – a city he once promised would remain undivided – about all of the shortcomings of the state of Israel. Lecturing Israel about its democracy, economy, foreign policy, and basic humanity, Obama harangued the Jewish State while stumping for a “possible” two-state solution.

Obama led off with the usual bevy of platitudes, plus a few cultural jokes. “This is a nation of museums and patents, timeless holy sites and ground-breaking innovation,” he gushed. “[A]ny drama between me and my friend Bibi over the years was just a plot to create material for Eretz Nehederet,” he continued, referencing a popular Israeli television show.

He paid tribute to the need for Israeli security without offering any solutions. He stated, “I also think about a people who have a living memory of the Holocaust, faced with the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iranian government that has called for Israel’s destruction.” Obama obviously had no problem with his administration repeatedly leaking Israeli security information that could have allowed Israel to launch a strike to prevent that second Holocaust. And in Jerusalem, Obama continued to insist that negotiations would be the real solution, despite all evidence to the contrary.

I wonder if this is a major insult to Israelis. The death cult has a thing about feet and shoes. Muslims throw shoes at people as an insult. If you really want to get their goat, you rub a goat ... (it is exciting to them ... well you get the idea).

Lefties always talk about being reasonable and seeing things from both sides but Obama would NEVER go before a group of Palestinians and ask them to put themselves in Israeli shoes and ask them to stop their indiscriminate attacks on Israelis.

Feck You!!

Message to Israel: Kill the ALL!!

So Obama wants Israel to put themselves in the Palestinians shoes?

Am I to take that as Obama instructing Israelis to shoot thousands of rockets into Palestinian cities, to send terrorist cells and suicide bombers against the Palestinians, and to have flash mobs beat and kill Palestinians?

Sure sounds like it

Yeh Bammy when Palestinians recognize Israel as a sovereign nation and quit threatening them with extinction. Until then take a shoeless hike on the hot desert sands.

Palestinians are the parastites of the ME. They have no real home, left Israel when they were told to do so by their muslim “masters” and have never been self sufficient. Rather like the welfare parasites that inhabit the US, they depend on welfare and love being stirred up by “racists” to riot over inconsequential matters to help gin up spathy from the West.

If the Israelis put themselves in the shoes of the Paleostinians...

... they would be blowing up school buses, restaurants and grocery stores with suicide bombers;

... they would be launching dozens of rockets per day at urban centers and residential neighborhoods;

... they would be breaking into houses and murdering whole families.

... they would be riddling cars with automatic weapons and mortar fire, killing infants, toddlers, parents, grandparents;

... and they would be doing these things while hiding among their own women and children and seniors in order to maximize civilian casualties resulting from any response from their opponents.

Did I leave anything out?

In order for the Israelis to put themselves in the Paleostinians’ shoes, they would have to become pure EVIL.

Like 0bumga.

How about O put himself in the Israeli’s shoes, starting when the Egyptians enslaved them, we can then proceed through history...one evil after another. I have no interest in putting myself in the Palestinians shoes. for goodness sakes they have their mosque, the Israelis have a wall. The Arabs have en entire region, and they want it all. Sorry, I don’t have a drop of sympathy for the Palestinians people who occupy Israel.

Put the socalled ‘palestinians” or arabs into those shoes and send them to the two-thirds of “palestine” that’s already under arab rule. (My Lord, what a complete embarrassment this guy is to the United States of America! And no doubt he’ll succeed in stirring up more trouble over there, too, let’s not discount his “community organizer” abilities just because its so hard to discern any others). Confession time: I’ve wanted so much to be able to support him, its a crying shame he’s so completely misguided)

Put themselves in the shoes of a “people” invented from whole cloth for the express purpose of delegitimizing the existence of Israel? Why would they ever do something so stupid as that?

Which shoe would that be, Barry? The shoe where the Israelis sneak across the border, and slaughter an entire family while it sleeps, including an infant child?

Or would that be the shoe where the Israelis stop a car with a family in it, and machinegun (no "assault weapon there!") the family to death, then taking extra delight and bragging about how they shot the pregnant mother in the belly "extra."

It's really hard to come up with examples, because there have been so many, so many that the media simply stopped reporting them. Daily rocket attacks just to fill in the blanks...

I've decided that the best thing to do would be to move the media offices to Sderot, and any time Barry or pali-supporters come to Israel for their photo ops, the government be officially moved there as well. I'd love to see Barry whimper in fear as the rockets that school children have to live with fall in his lap...

It's hard to keep up!

Put yourself in their shoes,” the President condescendingly urged, to a population assaulted with rockets and suicide bombs for decades. “Look at the world through their eyes. It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, and lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements of her parents every single day.” Obama did not mention the basic fact that the Palestinian leadership has repeatedly denied every multilateral and Israeli offer for a state; that they have stolen hundreds of millions of dollars from economic development; that they have channeled cash toward funding a low-level terror war with Israel; that Israel has handed over vast swaths of land to Palestinian Authority control. And Obama didn’t bother to explain how justice requires the creation of a terror state that would murder gays and condemn women to second-class status. No, Obama said, it was Israel’s lack of understanding that was the chief barrier to peace.

One variant of this is the Sword of Damocles, which is used to describe a sense of foreboding and might translate into English idiom as "walk a mile in my shoes." Here's the story about Damocles' sword:

For some reason, it reminded me of a very old joke...

An Israeli was sitting in the aisle seat with two Palestinians on a flight from Tel Aviv to London. It was tense. The Israeli removed his shoes and was trying to relax. Not a word was spoken.

About an hour from landing, the Israeli thought he would try to break the ice.

"I’m going to get some orange juice. Would either of you like some?" They said yes.

When the Israeli was gone, they each picked up a shoe and spit into it repeatedly. The Israeli brought back the juice.

After landing, the Israeli put on his shoes and realized what happened. He stoop up and shouted at the two – “There will never be peace in the Middle East until the Palestinian stops spitting into the shoe of the Israeli!” turned and walked away. And in a whisper, he said, “And, until the Israeli stops pissing into the OJ of the Palestinian.”
