He makes no apologies for pursuing the policies of Islamic Jihad. Honestly, I can’t understand the depravity of these MSM and Democrat sychopants that think this Halfrican Muslim is going to do them any good. He wants to convert them to Islam or enslave/kill them.

Peace and safety !
“While people are saying, “Peace and safety”
destruction will come on them suddenly,
as labor pains on a pregnant woman,
and they will not escape.”

I was there about 25% of us were not too taken by his words. He put a lot of red meat out there. But the winds will change next week after AIPAC.

He’s running for re-election, so he’s pretending to care about Israel.

He can’t apologize for something he hasn’t done or doesn’t feel.

The only thing the constant campaigner has pursued is the destruction of America.

“no apologies for pursuing peace” between Israelis and Palestinians. Israel’s own leaders, he said, understand the importance of peace.”

The time approaches. Not saying he is this guy but this is coming.


Daniel 8:23-25 King James Version (KJV)

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, ***and by peace shall destroy many***: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

US President Barack Obama said Sunday that he "make[s] no apologies for pursuing peace" between Israelis and Palestinians. Israel's own leaders, he said, understand the importance of peace.

@Here are President Obama's prepared remarks to AIPAC's policy conference this morning.

Of course, there are those who question not my security and diplomatic commitments, but my Administration’s ongoing pursuit of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. So let me say this: I make no apologies for pursuing peace. Israel’s own leaders understand the necessity of peace. Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Barak, and President Peres – each of them have called for two states, a secure Israel that lives side by side with an independent Palestinian state.

Speaking at the AIPAC Conference in Washington, the US president said he believes "peace is profoundly in Israel's security interests."

I believe that peace is profoundly in Israel’s security interest. The reality that Israel faces – from shifting demographics, to emerging technologies, to an extremely difficult international environment – demands a resolution of this issue. And I believe that peace with the Palestinians is consistent with Israel’s founding values – because of our shared belief in self-determination; and because Israel’s place as a Jewish and democratic state must be protected.

"I have kept my commitments to the State of Israel," he said. "At every crucial juncture, at every fork in the road, we have been there for Israel every single time."

AIPAC’s work continually nurtures this bond. And because of AIPAC’s effectiveness in carrying out its mission, you can expect that over the next few days, you will hear many fine words from elected officials describing their commitment to the U.S.-Israel relationship. But as you examine my commitment, you don’t just have to count on my words. You can look at my deeds. Because over the last three years, as President of the United States, I have kept my commitments to the state of Israel. At every crucial juncture – at every fork in the road – we have been there for Israel. Every single time.

Again the word “peace” is substituted for “surrender”.

As the saying goes, you can’t un-ring a bell. One suspects that Mister Obama’s true feelings about Israel have been aptly demonstrated by the actions of his and also his buddies.

Can we forget that Prime Minister Netanyahu was snubbed by Mister Obama's childish and undignified behavior? At least it apparently illustrated his true feelings toward Israel.

But wait, there’s more. How about Obama’s (alleged) BFF Bill Ayers association with the Free Gaza Movement?

I suspect that Mister Obama fools few with the gratuitous overture, and what precisely does he mean by "peace"?

No surprise that the Kowtower-in-Chief will present the Medal of Freedom to Shimon Peres, consumate pacifist and the precise opposite of Benjamin Netanyahu who should be getting the medal instead.

Shimon Peres is first cousin to actress Lauren Bacall (nee Betty Perske)......a consumate leftist, pacifist, anti-McCarthyite, speech giver for Adlai Stevenson and later, Robert Kennedy.

In 2005 she described herself as "anti-Republican" and went on to say, "the best thing on earth is being a liberal. You do not have a small mind."

Our esteemed Pres**ent has said that he makes no apologies for pursuing peace.

That would be fine if he wasn't so ardently pursuing surrender.

Obama to AIPAC: I make no apologies for pursuing peace... -Translation = makes no apologies to 'The Jews'.

*******

2008 videotape of Obama at Muslim dinner: Have we forgotten that controversial videotape of Obama at a Muslim dinner that was talked about during the 2008 presidential campaign and that the LA Times has in its possession but won't release to the public?

1. As I understand it, some of Obama's speech at the Muslim dinner leaked out, and Obama supposedly said some questionable things against Jews and Israel.

2. But at the time, LA Times officials---under tremendous pressure from the public---said that they would not release it to the public, because they said that they promised the owner that they would not release the videotape or his name unless the owner said it was alright.

3. As I recall, the owner supposedly told the LA Times that he would not let them see it unless they promised not to release it to the public.

4. To this day, it seems that the owner has not given his permission to LA Times to release the damaging videotape of Obama at the Muslim dinner.

5. My question is this: What right did LA Times have to make such a terrible promise in the first place?

6. I thought that newspaper people were morally obliged to seek the truth wherever the trail might lead, good or bad.

7. My point is this: LA Times officials had no right to promise the owner that it would not release the videotape if he would let them look at it.

8. I say this: We the public should put continuous tremendous pressure on LA Times officials until they see the error of their ways and release the videotape.

9. As I recall, LA Times gave a bizarre reason why they were not releasing the videotape to the public that went something like this: The release of the videotape of Obama talking about Jews and Israel at the Muslim dinner might influence the presidential elections in an unwanted negative way, and by negative way, the LA Times was referring to possibly affecting Obama's campaign in a negative way.

10. Again, I say that LA Times officials abandoned their moral duty as newspaper people when they refused to release the videotape of Obama speaking at the Muslim dinner.

11. Who do LA Times officials think they are when they suddenly take the high moral road and dare to tell us the public what is good or bad for us to read or see?

12. The LA Times should stop trying to play God, and they should release the Obama videotape so that we the public can decide for ourselves if we approve or disapprove of what is on the Obama Muslim dinner videotape.

13. LA Times: Stick to reporting the news and stay out of the area of what is moral or not moral.

14. If Obama said something at the Muslim dinner that might cause him to lose votes and the support of the Jewish community, then so be it. Obama will have only himself to blame for what happens, because nobody forced him to say critical things about Jews and Israel at that Muslim dinner.
