Obama Claims Kinship to Israel
Obama's actions speak much louder than his words when he professes a closeness to Israel.
Obama ignored the fact that Iran’s antisemitism and hatred of America are fundamental beliefs that guide the regime’s approach to foreign relations and even domestic policy.
His answer to antisemitism is another committee–at the UN General Assembly, an incubator of Jew-hatred.
In his speech, Obama also mentioned his 2009 visit with Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel to the Buchenwald concentration camp, which his great-uncle had helped liberate.
He neglected to mention that he had also made a special visit on the same trip to the German city of Dresden, which was firebombed during the war, in an odd gesture of moral equivalence.
Moreover, Obama had been on his way home from Cairo, where he delivered a speech to the Muslim world but made no effort to visit, or even reach out to, Israelis–a gesture widely recognized as the beginning of the deterioration of relations between the two governments.
A year ago, Obama minimized the antisemitic nature of a terror attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris, calling the killings “random.”
At one time, Obama made the following flabbergasting statement:
“You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office,” the president stated, according to Axelrod. “For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.”
In a rational world, the media would have hooted that statement down and shamed the president back to the White House. In fact, the president has done whatever he could to show that his sympathies lie with Islam and apologizing for the world reign of terror it has launched, although he has always tried to disassociate the connection between terror and Islam in spite of the fact that 95% of the terror attacks in the last few years have been perpetrated by Islamic terror groups.
In fact, the president is not only antagonistic and dismissive of Israel and prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he has done severe damage to the close relationship our two countries once had. Hopefully the incoming president will recognize that Israel truly is the only friend in the Middle East that we have, and that Islam has essentially declared war on the West and the United States. The real questions is if Obama recognizes that, and in fact, if he even welcomes that.
