Statement By Liz Cheney On President Obama’s Response To The Flotilla Incident
Keep America Safe ^ | June 4th, 2010 | Liz Cheney

Posted on 06/04/2010 8:52:28 PM PDT by Ooh-Ah

Today, Keep America Safe’s Liz Cheney released the following statement on President Obama’s response to the flotilla incident:

“Yesterday, President Obama said the Israeli action to stop the flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip was “tragic.” What is truly tragic is that President Obama is perpetuating Israel’s enemies’ version of events. The Israeli government has imposed a blockade around Gaza because Hamas remains committed to Israel’s destruction, refusing to recognize Israel’s right to exist and using territory under their control to launch attacks against Israeli civilians.

The Israeli blockade of Gaza, in order to prevent the re-arming of Hamas, is in full compliance with international law. Had the Turkish flotilla truly been interested in providing humanitarian aid to Gaza, they would have accepted the Israeli offer to off-load their supplies peacefully at the Israeli port of Haifa for transport into Gaza.

President Obama is contributing to the isolation of Israel, and sending a clear signal to the Turkish-Syrian-Iranian axis that their methods for ostracizing Israel will succeed, and will be met by no resistance from America. There is no middle ground here. Either the United States stands with the people of Israel in the war against radical Islamic terrorism or we are providing encouragement to Israel’s enemies—and our own. Keep America Safe calls on President Obama to reverse his present course and support the state of Israel immediately and unequivocally.”

“Keep America Safe calls on President Obama to reverse his present course and support the state of Israel immediately and unequivocally.””

What’s to prevent any, or all of us from stating to Israel our unequivocal support on our own?

To Hell with Obama.

Liz has summarized Obama's strategy toward Israel.

Liz is the most articulate, succinct conservative in the movement today. This statement really goes right into the gut of the Obama administration. Any administration or liberal media flunky reading this can’t help but get a sick, nagging feeling that their leader isn’t worth squat. I know that there has got to be someone in Obama’s administration or in the lapdog media who quietly thinks that Obama is destroying the country.

Thanks for the link to the video. Sorry that Bill Clinton’s face is included, but others are too. The point is made: only Israel has ever wanted peace.

Compare Liz Cheney’s analysis of the situation to Hillary Clinton. What a joke is Hillary Clinton. She has also been feeding misstatements out to the world press for the gratification of Israel’s enemies and the enemies of Capitalism.

I agree with you. He is a rabid Jew hater. He has filled his administration with other anti-semites, and is setting Israel up, along with the Jewish people, world wide, to be destroyed and butchered. That is his intention.

Anyone who will vote for this evil being, or his party, will bear the blood on their hands of every Jew that will die.

I would not want to answer to G-D for that sin.

REPORT FROM INSIDE ISRAEL:

I have just received this from my friend in Israel who moves in high circles there. No attribution possible. It’s from a very trustworthy source who was himself the recipient and knows these people. They send him information clandestinely and they remain incognito, so that they can safely inform Americans of what is actually happening. I’m sure that they would be pleased to have the information disseminated.

Incidentally, in my opinion, this is what appears to be happening. Obama has made secret deals with the Iranian mullahcracy to facilitate the weakening of both the USA and Israel, even the planned destruction of Israel, in exchange for promises from Iran and now the Turkish leadership that ‘all they want’ – à la Munich, 1938 – is their individual MidEast Sudentenland, each of them.

Turkey and Iran have decided to split the ME between them – East and West. Turkey will recreate a new Sunni-controlled Ottoman Empire, and Iran will be allowed its own ‘greater Iran’ hegemony…i.e. a new Shiite Caliphate stretching beyond its current borders.

Obama, who is a Muslim, agrees with this plan and has pledged to help throw Israel – along with all American national security interests – to the wolves.

This appears to me to be what is currently happening, and Americans had better awaken to this reality long before November, 2012, or we won’t have a country, or an Israel, to save any longer.

She has that gravitas just like her parents. I'd like to see her in a major cabinet post at a minimum after 2012.

She also does a very good job of standing up to Juan Williams.

No matter the topic—Juan comes back with statements that sound like a trained parrot.

No thinking—just speaking. He really seems to be stuck at about a 13 y/o level—and just cannot get unstuck.

I cannot see why anyone keeps signing a paycheck for that man. Another reason why PBS should not be supported with American tax dollars.

it should only be supported by those who wish to sponsor such drivel from such a simpleton.
