For Netanyahu, a bombshell battering by Obama
Times of Israel ^ | March 3, 2014, 4:18 am | David Horovitz

Posted on 03/07/2014 10:22:45 PM PST by Olog-hai

… Until he read the breaking news of President Obama’s earth-shattering interview with Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might have anticipated that Monday’s meeting was going to be one of his less confrontational and unpleasant sessions of frank, allied diplomacy with his good friend Barack. […]

For one thing is certain, the president’s resort to a newspaper interview on the eve of their talks to issue near-apocalyptic warnings about the disaster Netanyahu risks bringing upon Israel is just about the last thing likely to bolster the prime minister’s confidence in their alliance, and just about the last thing likely to encourage Netanyahu to further alienate his hawkish home base by taking steps such as halting building outside the settlement blocs. …

Unless it is the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama doesn’t have your back.

How American Jews remain Democrats is beyond me.

Oh, I don’t think Bibi is surprised at all.

Did he truly expect a Marxist Muslim to watch his back or even help protect Israel? I don’t think so.

I believe he should be relieved. It means he can unleash Hell on enemies in the Middle East.

IMO if BHO2 knows what is personally best for he and his family, he does nothing to help those who attack Israel.

Any comments are welcome.

Bibi should contact Putin—and maybe seek a way to fix the Syrian Question. Obama is worthless.

To be clear I wish nothing but good for Israel and it’s people.. But I think that many Jews HERE will have to have pain inflicted on their families THERE before they turn on the Dems.

I do not want that to happen. But I’m afraid that it will. Because until now, the Dems know they have a near monolithic lock on them ‘no matter what’. Sounds familiar actually.

Bebe should have just sent a spokesman from the Israeli embassy instead of meeting with Obama in person. It would have demonstrated how little he respects Obama, Kerry and others in this regime.

How can Obama continue to object to Israel building on its own land and then threatening Israel unless it gives in to a group of terriorists that call themselves Palestinians and claim they own the land?

I’ve no idea why American Jews don’t support Israel instead of the terriorsts and Obama, who backs such everywhere.

In my eyes, Netanyahu is a bigger man than Putin who is a bigger man than Obama.

Israel has plenty of friends in America. Unfortunately, not many of those friends live in D.C., teach in our universities, or work in the media.

Our foreign policy is in shambles. I am not sure we will ever regain the trust we had only 5 years ago.

Egypt and Saudi Arabia view the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and have banned it in their countries. Obama being a friend of Mr. Khalidi of the Brotherhood, can’t seem to stop supporting them and alienating the only long term Arab allies of the USA.

Now that Egypt is back buying Russian arms, and Saudi Kingdom requires a visit by Obama for his failure to disarm the Iranians which frightens the Royal Saudi family, let see if he plays hardball with them like he does with BB.

That is why I call them JINOs. I just remember when they recklessly said His blood be on us and our children. He marveled at their unbelief too. There has been a veil of blindness over their eyes ever since, so I am not surprised too much, by some of the things that go on today.

Bibi knows Obama is a major enemy of Jews and Christians. We are infidel. Obama has made that crystal clear for years. Bibi and Israel can get by. The trouble is that Obama makes the chance of a super- sized war much more likely. Bibi knows Israel has to remain strong and be seen and understood to be strong to prevent Obsma’s islamoNazi comrades from trying another one ( war against Israel). Just as soon as the Muslims think Obama has weakened Israel, they’ll try another war. Bibi is not blind, everyone knows all this and so Bibi keeps Israel as strong as possible while always searching for any chance of real ( not pretend ) peace. Chances of any real peace are almost zero so long as Obama- Kerry are proposing the islamoNazi agenda to dismember and destroy Israel. So Bibi realizes that he has to wait Obama’s regime out. Bad situation for Israel but they can handle it. Christians and other good people need to help Israel now because too many American Jews are in with the enemy Obama camp. Some are blinded others are victims of Jewish Suicide Syndrome and cannot be relied on sorry to have to point out. It’s quite tragic, as many here have observed.

Exactly, although this is not what you may have intended to say:.......The Mossad does not play around. Obama is likely just a few steps down from the top of their “most likely to disappear list.”

As a supporter of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood,Obama has been trying to violate Israeli Sovreignty from the day of his 1st inauguration, by dictating ordnance supply from 3rd parties, by dictating where Israel can build housing on Israeli soil, by interfering with national legislative process, by interfering with Israeli elections, by supplying arms to Hamas from the “conquered” Libyan Arsenal through Benghazi,( its a long list). If Jews in America knew the half of it, Obama would not still be in office, he would have lost his re-election bid.

Indeed our foreign policy sucks. Electing the right conservatives with the resolve to face the rest of the world head on will eventually get that policy and more importantly RESPECT (see, I can spell it correctly) back. It may well take some years to achieve but it CAN be done but NOT with the present administration losers.

“How American Jews remain Democrats is beyond me.”

Remember Israel is a socialist country. Also, at least the Jews I knew and know, were all involved with academia. An academic lives in a world like an orchid. The orchid can only see its hothouse filled with other orchids. Its world smells sweet and it sees nothing of the real world. It sees no war, no pestilence, no starvation, no striving, nothing the outside sees. The outside doesn’t exist for the academic orchids. So, they vote for that which enforces their view. And, if you’re not an orchid, but you live off the orchid’s inflated salary and sup the nectar thus provided you too see only the world of the orchid.

Sarcasm, OK. Seriously, after Crimea, NOBODY trusts or wants to be around Russia.

Israel has always been somewhat independent, and will stay that way. Obama can buster & threaten all he wants, but Israel still has strong support in Congress, and they're the ones that cut the cheques.

Thanks Olog-hai.
Surviving Obama Caroline B. Glick
Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg minced few words in discussing the interview that President Barack Obama gave him on the eve of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's latest visit to Washington. Speaking with Charlie Rose, Goldberg equated Obama's threat to stop supporting Israel in international forums to the talk of a mafia don. Obama told Goldberg, that if Israel doesn't cut a deal with the Palestinians soon, "our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited." He added, "And that has consequences." That statement, Goldberg noted, was a "veiled threat" and "almost up there with, 'Nice little Jewish state you've got there. Hate to see something happen to it.'" Goldberg saw the interview as Obama's way of showing that he is beginning to abandon the pretense of supporting Israel, now that he no longer faces reelection.

They might be JINOs. Just like we have Americans who hate America, there are so called Jews who hate America and Israel too. I don't get it either, but that is reality.

I view it as an obvious spiritual thing. Observing the politics of the American Jew left me puzzled for the longest time. But this demonstrates a pattern that has repeated for centuries. Approximately 80% of the Jewish population is politically aligned against the rest of the population.

The most prominent example is Nazi Germany around 1920-1930's. The "native" Germans were for a National socialist government centered around Berlin and most (80% ?) of the German Jewish population were for an International socialist government centered around Moscow. The native German probably got tired of scratching his head as to why the Jews do not embrace the country that they were born in. Hitler took full advantage of this sentiment, of course.

As I believe that the Jews are the chosen people of God, and Israel is a chosen land, I also see that they are (mostly) rebellious against the Lord in Heaven. And so it goes on and on. Through this view, I can see why the Jewish people had their butts kicked in every decent and not so decent country. Because they kept aggravating the native people.

I am prepared to have anyone disagree with me on this and enlighten me.

The problem seems to be something other than incompetence actually. A charge of incompetence implies an effort to do something positive while lacking the ability to do so and thereby producing a negative result that was UNINTENDED. Ask what our eared leader would do if he were deliberately trying to create havoc or was acting as the puppet of those who were deliberately trying to create havoc. Would he do anything differently than what he does or do his actions appear to be exactly what you would expect in such a situation? My own opinion is of course implied by the question.

Are we in fact witnessing a display of competence rarely equalled in the history of the world if we assume evil intent, either self directed or by the direction of controllers? Which of those two possibilities seems more likely, self directed action or puppet action?

As low information as many voters are I honestly believe that we are probably at the point where the voters count for nought, it seems likely that only the vote COUNTERS matter. We may very well have reached the time when you CAN CHEAT if it is not close. Technology which not only adds votes to one party but takes those same votes away from the party for which the votes were intended is vastly different from just simple ballot box stuffing.

I thought BO was the smartest person on the planet? Can't he see, when Israel gave up Gaza, dragging Jewish settlers from their homes to give "land for peace" and the result of that "deal" was the ultimate death of Aerial Sharon and Gaza being used to launch rockets and attacks on Israel almost reaching TelAviv?

So now the Palestinians want to be a little closer to Tel Aviv and now they must give up the West Bank? The Israeli army just busted an Iranian ship full of long range rockets bound for Gaza!!! My God what is wrong with these people?

Deu 11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

Deu 11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.

Deu 11:25 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

The only nation on earth that was given the title deed to land from the creator of that land.

Everyone has suspected this for some time. Proving it when the benefactors are the ones guarding the “ballot box” is the problem. Until someone can step forward and prove it without getting assainated by the 0 regime is the hard part. As to my comments on his incompetence - do you think he could really do the job on his own without Satan Soros support?

Hopefuly Bibi has come to understand that he is dealing with a closet Muslim who occasionally forces himself to church to maintain a facade of christianity. After 5 years of watching and listening to BHO it should be clear to everyone that he considers himself a Muslim. When you bow to the King of Saudi Arabia what more is there to say?

Israel has no friend in the Whitehut and they will have to hang in there for another 3 years til we get rid of Barky.
