Skip to comments.Former New York Mayor Ed Koch: Obama is willing to 'throw Israel under a bus to please Muslims'
Posted on 04/03/2010 1:51:47 PM PDT by opentalk
One of New York Citys most famous and influential Jews, former mayor Ed Koch, longtime Democrat and longtime mayor (he governed New York for eleven years) is showing distinct signs of buyers remorse. And anecdotal evidence gathered by him and me in my sojourns around New York and New Jersey suggest that Hiz Honors emotional trajectory is fairly representative of a growing disenchantment among Jews who voted for Obama.
The falling out of love, the term Mayor Koch used in an August commentary where he began expressing doubts, has been gradual. First there was the handling of the health care bill. Then the Presidents failure to extract quid pro quos from Russia and China, then the underwear bomber affair. But it was Obamas recent treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House (refusing to allow photographs, sequestering the world leader in a room and then leaving him there while he went to have dinner with his family with the instruction call me if anything changes) that seems to have pushed the rambunctious former mayor over a kind of edge.
Several days ago Koch, who is still a practising lawyer, caused a media stir by publishing a commentary titled Never Again Should We Be Silent. The essay, which declares that President Obamas abysmal attitude toward the state of Israel and his humiliating treatment of Prime Minister Netanyahu is shocking was widely reproduced in other media. He received about 500 emails (overwhelmingly supportive of his point), and then there was the kicker, on April 1, (and, no it wasnt an April Fools joke). He went on the Fox Business News network where he told host Neil Cavuto, I believe the Obama administration is willing to throw Israel under the bus in order to please the Muslim nations.

America won’t be there for Israel and people like Koch are to blame...hell, America is not even there for it’s own people anymore
This is from a lost time...and hopefully we can gain some of what we lost after this nightmare wannabe dictator gets voted out of office
Liberals are liberals first. They bow to their gods Abortion and Sodomy.
For sure Obama will throw Israel under the bus. Yet people are missing the big truth - all the Arab nations want Iran destroyed and they pray the Israelis will do this. They will angrily scream in the streets but then thank Allah in their homes that the Iranian menace is finally dead. Why is this not reported in America?
What is even worse. He is trying to throw America under the bus to satisfy his huge ego.
They don’t know such history, and it wouldn’t change their mind if they did. They are “D” first.
Are you sure that picture is not from a Toilet Paper Bride Contest?
Look - ObamaKhan is setting the stage for another holocaust. The world needs to destroy Iran’s ability to wage war - and I don’t care about the Russians and Chinese. Frankly - even the Arab world wants Iran destroyed, they are all afraid. Hamas is running around planning the murder of millions of Jews, and Iran sending arms - this has got to stop.
ObamaKhan’s weak leadership is destabilizing the Middle East.
When W Bush left office - Libya had surrendered its nukes, Iraq would no longer pursue them and Iran had none. Had Bush not waged the pre-emptive war, Libya would have become a full fledged nuclear power, Saddam would have clearly re-armed and Iran would be on the brink as it is now. It would be the flash point for WWIII with three freakin nutjobs each with an atomic bomb. That would be the world of Kerry-Gore-MichaelMoore. Bush did the world a huge favor - saving potentially millions of lives - now watch ObamaKhan let these Iranian psychos get the bomb and undo the work. Great leadership!
he he he he
I am not 100% sure so I will take a wild guess. Remember, it is only a wild guess. Perhaps many Jews in Israel are liberals like American liberals, who are ashamed of their own counties. Many American liberals would like to see America reduced to a 3rd world country. Is it possible many liberal Jews in Irael also want their own country to become a 3rd world country as well?
Don’t expect much from an immoral homosexual.
Very well said!!
Jews that voted for Obama must not know the history of other Fascists. They are Fascists number one most likely group to be exterminated by them.But he's black. He can't be a Hitler if he's black. /sarc
Why does it take the Jews so long to figure out who are their friends and who are their enemies?Because so many of them love Socialism more than they love life. Literally.
Well, he is the “Great Uniter”, right??? /s
How stupid he was. All the evidence was there showing his roots with Jeremiah Wright...an American Hater and a Jew hater.
