Report: Obama Blaming Israel for Rising Fuel Prices
www.israelnationalnews.com ^ | 4-3-12 | Elad Benari

Posted on 04/03/2012 8:04:24 AM PDT by rawhide

The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.

The report cited a leading U.S. analyst, Robert Satloff, who returned from talks with Israeli officials.

Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said, according to The World Tribune, that the Israeli leadership saw Washington as attributing the higher gas prices to “Israel’s posturing” on Iran.

“They think the Iranians should be held responsible for the higher gasoline prices,” Satloff was quoted as having said.

He added that the officials told him the Obama administration was staging a campaign to undermine Israel.

“I cannot underscore how deep and visceral the [Israeli] comments of the leaking that came out of Washington were,” Satloff said, noting Israel is alarmed by what officials determined were leaks by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama of purported Israeli preparations to attack Iran.

It’s a good strategy, I have to admit.

Always pointing the finger at someone else. Has he ever accepted responsibility for anything?

Nope. He is certainly the most immature brat to ever occupy the Oval Office.

“So blame all of your economic woes on those darned Jooooooos again!”

The last time we heard that the messenger was quite a bit shorter. And he wasn’t clean shaven.

In the book “Left Behind,“ a snake-oil salesman named Carpathian brings the World to ruin.

Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is our Carpathian as he tries to bring America to ruin.

Ah yes. Blaming the Jews. The last resort for Fascists, Bigots or both. Will anyone beyond FR be offended by this?

More and more Obama is sounding like the smart-a$$, loud-mouth kid on the playground whose mouth constantly writes checks that his body can’t cash.

For me, the fingernails on the chalkboard get more and more annoying every day.

Israel should consider the present administration of the US as an enemy.

Its scripture that he won’t take responsibility for anything. And every time he tries to blame Bush, the oil companies, specualtors, etc, he gets shot down.

So, he has to blame someone and the Israelis are as good as anyone. Plus, he hates his enemy, like most of his cohorts.

Just amazes me that Israeli intelligence doesn’t have or can’t come up with, something to ruin the guy.

It’s always somebody else’s fault for three-year-old children and Marxists. The difference is the vast majority of three-year-old children grow up.

I think Israel is aware that this administration is not an ally. If things were not so touchy at this time with Iran, Israel might even vocalize that there are some giant rifts in the relationship with US.

Obama is not a fool. He’s a very dangerous demagogue playing race politics in an explosive situation. Those who underestimate this fiend do so at their peril.
