Skip to comments.Center Field: Obama’s callousness toward the ‘kidnapped’ kids… and Israel

Yes, I remain disgusted by the Hamas terrorists and by Palestinians nihilistic political culture that repeatedly chooses violence over negotiations. But as an Americanand a presidential historianI am also furious at President Barack Obama. His seemingly heartfelt comments when the boys were found dead came two weeks too late. His aloofness from the three families during the search exposed a callousness toward Israel which goes far beyond the episodic Netanyahu-Barack follies. Just as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbass quick condemnation of the kidnapping meant a lot positively, Obamas emotional miserliness meant a lot, negatively. [ ]
Of course, Obama and his acolytes will blame George W. Bush. While Bush reflects Republicans excess faith in American power, Obama reflects Democrats intemperate retreat from it. Words matter. Leadership counts. Strength breeds strength while weakness breeds weakness. Americas enemies smell Obamas softness, his ambivalence, his tentativeness. Like unruly kids torturing an ineffectual substitute teacher, they have learned you can push his buttons, cross his red lines, dare to defy, without suffering serious consequences. Strategically, Obamas longstanding critique of American power and primacy has handcuffed him while, tactically, his inexperience in executive leadership roles has him flummoxed.

They were Jews and he is Muslim or at the very least, a Muslim sympathizer.
Obama getting more and more like Robert Mugabe every day
Regarding the Pali kid who was found burned:
I’ve never heard of Israelis burning another person to death. I HAVE heard of Arabs burning enemies to death multiple times.
My guess is the Pali’s burnt their own teenager to death and then left him so as to start a confrontation with the Israelis. Sick? I agree but that’s the way they are!
That’s plausible. There is, in addition, the suspicion that his death was an honor killing due to him being homosexual.
IMO both views aren’t mutually exclusive. his family killed him for being gay, and then they or someone else decided that they may as well take the opportunity to blame the Jews.
That’s why I said “in addition”.
The last time I saw Obama REALLY warm with an American family was when the creepy deserter was ‘coming home’... THAT family he liked.
A word of warning to Obama, America's Islamic Sultan in Chief. Don't mess with Israel, it doesn't pay to fight God's chosen people because when you fight Israel you're fighting Him.
There are rumors that this kid was killed as part of an “Honor killing”, that he was Gay. Jews are not known for the unbridled cruelty Arabs show towards Jews, Christians or even there own Muslim brothers. It might be a revenge attack by Jews but I doubt it because if true, it would be a precedent. Jews MIGHT kill but torture and burn the body? It sounds like Arabs, not Jews. In any event, the truth is irrelevant for Arabs in the entire region. The important result are riots and that is good for HAMAS and the PLO (PA).
Israel has shown restraint since 1948, time and time again.
This brings us back to the old question: Are the Arabs revolting? Answer yes...
Obama is a Turd World president.
