“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.”—John Kennedy [Italics added]
We seem to have come a long way from Kennedy’s supposed policy of defending any friend, to Obama saying, “hey you have the right to defend yourself, on your own, as in if all those crazy Islamic countries I’m so in love with want to attack and slaughter you, I really won’t raise a finger. But you have the right to give it the old college try at defending yourself.”
Now should the U.S.’s policy be unconditional support of Israel? No. I’m not thrilled with the lack of capitalistic protections in Israel, and there are other little things I think Israel could make serious improvement when it comes to their system…and you know, someday, when they’re not having their very existence threatened by every country around them they might get around to making those improvements. However, while the U.S. should not unconditionally support Israel in everything it does, we do have a moral responsibility to help support every democracy against terrorism.
“But, but” the liberals whine, “Palestine is a democratic government.” Palestine is a government where Hamas, a terrorist organization whose charter calls for destroying Israel and killing the Jews, is in the majority, and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, whose has always called for the destruction of Israel, exists under their new name of Fatah. So the majority government calls for the destruction of Israel and killing all the Jews, and the opposition party calls for the destruction of Israel and killing all the Jews. One has to wonder where these two groups actually disagree on anything. Using ovens or just shooting them? Does it surprise anyone that this part of the world was having excellent diplomatic relations with Germany in the 30’s and early 40’s? So while this government may have been elected democratically, just as Hitler was, it is by no means a democratic government. It’s a terrorist organization. The popular vote just makes the people of Gaza and the West Bank as morally guilty as those of Germany in the 30’s. And anyone who dares to call Palestine a democratic government defiles the term suggesting that democracy is not a set of classically liberal principles set up to protect and defend the natural rights of humanity, but rather just a form of theater, that so long as the public forums are continued, any atrocity may be carried under the name of that show.
Anyone with a brain and conscience can see who deserves most, sorry ALL, of the blame in this conflict: The people in the West Bank and Gaza. When you act like terrorists, elect terrorists, hide terrorists, and support terrorists, you are a terrorist. And you don’t deal with terrorists diplomatically. You kill them.
Perhaps if we demand anything of Israel we could demand that the Palestinians get a real government and not a terrorist organization. That would only be fair. But not for an anti-Semite like Obama, who I am sure in his heart of hearts wouldn’t mind seeing the furnaces started up again.
But that might be asking a bit much of Obama. Perhaps my claim of his anti-Semitism is unfounded.
After all this is a man who sat for years in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic screeds without once being offended.
This is a man who called Israel defending itself by stopping a weapons shipment reaching the West bank “tragic.” …That’s how I’m sure we all usually respond to the killing of terrorists hell-bent on genocide, “tragic”…oh wait, no most of us smile when terrorists die. If you watch the clip also he blames Israel for Palestinian economic problems…and not, you know, the Palestinian desire to elect a terrorist organization.
How about backing that wacky Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, and Libya? A group, which as its name suggests, is not going to be friendly to Israel because they have a long standing history of talking about how evil the Jews are (or maybe the Muslim Brotherhood just believes in showing both sides of the argument, that’s why they distribute copies of Mein Kampf and Protocols of the Elders of Zion in Arabic wherever they can…no, they’re about as Anti-Semitic as you get). What’s really interesting here is that Obama can’t help the anti-Semitic rebels enough…but remember a year or so ago when he let the Iranian protesters just get killed without doing much of anything…maybe it was because they were protesting against Ahmadinejad, a devout Holocaust denier.
I could go on, but you get the point.
One piece of evidence could be written off as a fluke or random chance, as something where we didn’t see the larger picture that Obama did. But when every single action that directly or tangential deals with Israel or the Jewish people, Obama is dead set against….well the conclusion becomes all too clear: Barrack Obama takes his place among other such names as FDR and Carter as an anti-Semitic President of the United States.
