I listened to literally three seconds of Obama’s speech yesterday. I couldn’t take anymore than that without risking either a) Going brain dead from the weighty mixture of propaganda and inaccuracies or b) screaming at my computer and foaming at the mouth.
Considering that I was at work and needed to retain some semblance of professionalism, I listened to Rush Limbaugh instead, thereby managing to maintain my sanity.
I’m sure that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wishes he could have done the same. Judging by his comments afterwards, I’m sure he had one huge headache after Obama was done talking.
Israel was under attack from multiple fronts just a few days ago. But far from condemning that anti-Semitic military action or even bothering to acknowledge it at all, Obama singled out our greatest ally in the region as the problematic one.
As Linda Chavez at the Washington Examiner acknowledges, the PotUS’s words were not those of any friend worth having:
“With this speech, Obama became the first American president to require that Israel accept its pre-1967 borders as a starting point to negotiations with the Palestinians.
“This is a dramatic departure from U.S. policy, which recognized that agreed-to final borders would be the end product of negotiations between the parties, not a precondition to starting talks. In essence, what Obama has called for is unilateral concessions from Israel without a single concrete concession from the Palestinians.”
Chavez then goes on to detail Israel’s historical right to the land in question… facts the mainstream media is usually all too happy to ignore. Clearly, President Obama has no problem rewriting the records as well.
This all begs the question of why? Why is he so set on alienating our allies while embracing our enemies?
After all, why can’t he take such tough stances on China… instead of throwing them elaborate and costly state dinners?
Or Iran… which he kowtows to, barely uttering a peep of protest as they build up dangerous nuclear capability?
Or Russia… rather than signing dangerous treaties with the clearly hostile country that’s just itching to return to its soviet days of the last century.
Only Obama knows the real reasons behind his dangerous actions. But one thing is for sure, this is not a President the United States can afford to have.
