A good beat and you can kill to it

Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama draws on the deep well of his wisdom and his foreign policy successes to instruct Israelis on the path to peace in today’s Haaretz column “Peace is the only true path to security for Israel and the Palestinians.” Warning: Reading may induce nausea.

“In President Abbas, Israel has a counterpart committed to a two-state solution and security cooperation with Israel,” Obama writes. Benjamin Netanyahu? The observant reader — such as Josh Lederman, the author of this AP story — will note that Obama offered no parallel praise for Netanyahu. He also omits any mention of the peaceniks in Gaza barraging Israel with rockets.

Because of the ludicrous timing of Obama’s column, Haaretz emphasizes: “This article was written for Haaretz’s Israel Conference on Peace before June 30, 2014.” Obama’s wisdom, however, is timeless. It can’t have proved obsolete in a matter of days, can it?

Obama has not yet publicly embraced Hamas. He simply ignores it. Hamas doesn’t rate a mention. Obama’s silence regarding Hamas is the midpoint on his journey toward the post-presidential phase of Jimmy Carter’s career as a Middle East peacemaker.

Abbas is such a peacenik that the media under his control via Fatah or the Palestinian Authority regularly call for the extinction of Israel. Palestinian Media Watch makes the work of the Palestinian media accessible in English and interested observers can witness the phenomenon for themselves.

Only a proselyte can miss, or choose to ignore, the fact that he is an anti-Semite. Then again, what Muslim isn't?

I’m pretty sure that Arabs are designated as Semites also.

Please... stop this nonsense. Whilhelm Marr designated the term antisemite (one word, for him) as applying only to the Jews. He wanted the a term more elegant than judenhass; i.e, Jewhate, and he thought he found it in antisemitism.

The Jewhaters invented the term antisemite and now they try to run away from the term they invented? Most obnoxious.

Perhaps Obama could take his “Minstrel Peace Show” to Chicago. I hear there are a lot more killings there than in Israel and a lot more people who look like his sons, if he could have sons.
