Sarah Palin Criticizes Obama over Israel Relations, Calls it 'Junior High Diplomacy'
All Media New York ^ | February 6, 2014 | Alex Mangini

Posted on 02/06/2014 2:35:35 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin lashed out at President Barack Obama’s administration today for its handling of relations with Israel, taking to Facebook to air out her frustrations over what she called “junior high diplomacy.”

“What is this — junior high school diplomacy? What next — using Facebook to ‘unfriend’ Israel? Isn’t it about time for the Obama administration to remember who our friends are and to treat them like friends?” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “Israel is once again feeling the brunt of the Obama administration’s enemy centric foreign policy.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, who has been a target of Palin's in the past, also came under fire from the former governor for putting Israel in “an untenable position” over the Iranian nuclear deal as well as recent comments he made in Germany.

“You see for Israel there’s an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up,” Kerry said earlier this week. “People are very sensitive to it. There are talk of boycotts and other kinds of things.”

“The Israelis are quite appropriately upset about the treatment they’ve received from Kerry,” Palin responded.

The "thrilla from Wasilla" strikes again. The Muslims, be they the Arab Muslim Brotherhood, or the Persian "Hidden Iman" types, are the cool kids while the Israeli Jews are the outcasts who deserve bullying and derision.

This whole world diplomacy does very much remind me of the bad social order in Junior High School, too.

I’ll bet you’ve also noticed that she is ALWAYS right. Right on the issues, and “right”.

Here's her full statement:
Israel is once again feeling the brunt of the Obama administration’s enemy centric foreign policy. First, Secretary Kerry put our ally Israel in an untenable position with the deal he brokered with Iran over its nuclear ambitions, then he suggested that Israel could face “delegitimization” and “boycott” campaigns if it didn’t agree on the Obama administration’s idea of a peace deal with the Palestinians, and now he’s denouncing Israel for building homes in a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem. The Israelis are quite appropriately upset about the treatment they’ve received from Kerry. And how has the Obama administration responded? Well, National Security Advisor and former UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on Twitter to chastise Israel for criticizing Kerry! What is this – junior high school diplomacy? What next – using Facebook to “unfriend” Israel? Isn’t it about time for the Obama administration to remember who our friends are and to treat them like friends?

Isn’t it about time the Obama Administration grows up. It’s an adult WORLD out there, and Sarah’s right. They act like Jr. High Schoolers....the lot of them.

You know, we have this conversation at home over dinner more often than one would think. Beau thinks like you do as far as Israel is concerned.

But GOOD GOD - siding with Palestinians and the EXTERMINATION of Israel? I just don’t get it.

Sarah is right on the mark.

Junior high school diplomacy is the trademark of 0bammie and the inept people he’s surrounded himself with for his foreign policy since he took office.

Kerry threatened Israel with boycotts if it didn’t accept Kerry’s plan.

Go to www.jpost.com and read all the articles and citizen feedback. This is an all time low in USA to Israeli relations.

Kerry overlooks the fact the the PA and Hamas are reuniting and both will not accept his framework either, but he only pressure the Israelis. Israel wants recognition as a Jewish state , just like the 22 Arab states are officially Muslim.
Also, Israel has 1.25 million non Jews, mostly Muslims, and the Palies won’t allow any Jews to live in their state.
Lastly, Israel’s capitol of 4,000 years, Jerusalem will stay united like Berlin under Israeli sovereignty and the Obama
administration isn’t allowing 535 public housing permits in east Jerusalem, where there are already existing Israeli public units. Israel has to build housing for Jewish immigrants leaving France and other country’s with anti Semitic violent attacks.

America still hasn’t recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol. Israel is the only country I can ever remember that hasn’t the right to name its country’s capitol.

Israel is the victim of unprovoked attack on a daily basis even during this so called peace process cease fire.

10,000 missiles have landed in Israel since this peace process started. If you don’t have sympathy for the people of Israel having to deal with people who several times turned down deals that gave them 98% of what they wanted and have incited hatred, attacks every day for over 60 years your an Anti Semite.

Excellent, thanks for the heads up onyx! Obama, Kerry and Rice...speaking of rice, isn't that how Kerry got one of his purple hearts--a grain of rice stuck in his butt? (oh the irony)...act like they have no idea who they are dealing with.

And I'm not talking about Palin but God's COVETED land of Israel and his people.

God has a plan for Israel and these three and the other lackeys are poking Him in the eye. Can't end well for them...

Good for Palin for keeping the reality front and center!

Sarah Palin's absolute, loving and genuine SUPPORT for Israel is why I WILL vote for her as POTUS!

But Then I shouldn't expect someone who's screen name is the founder of the country who sacks and burned our most holy temple!

Being Pro-Life and Pro-Israel are the primary reasons I support Sarah Palin.

But this issue goes far beyond her.

All I needed to know about the Ubama Regime's Attitude towards Israel is his Friendship with the Anti-Semitic Bitch Mrs. Cass Sunstine (Samantha Power)

Cass Sunstine has wet dreams over the power the Regulatory Branch of Government has.

And the Holocaust was Carried out by a Bunch of Bureaucrats!

And these people would do it again too! Mrs. Cass Sunstine wants the UN or US to "protect" the Palestinans by waging war against Israel.

This isn't Bad Diplomacy, this is outright Antisemitism.

Sarah - An old biblical name of honor.

Obama - an old Arabic word for “shit”.

Kerry - a French word for “traitor”.

God blesses Israel and all who stand with her.

Amen to that my friend!

And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.--Genesis 12:31
America at it's heart knows that Israel is important to the future of the world and supports it 100%

The "squeaky wheels" are getting a lot of attention now, but will reap the whilrwing (see bolded area) in the end.

Again, to quote my previous post "Can't end well for them..." Hmmmmmm, quite the understatement!
