“Obama’s hostility to Israel has deep roots extending all the way back to the years he took his family to Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago to hear the sermons of the Jew-hating, Israel-despising, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
Obama’s hostility to Israel was evident when he took office and made it clear he wanted to reset our foreign policy to be closer to the Muslim world. He has worked to do just that for nearly six years, and the result is a Middle East in flames.
Remember March 2010? Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived at the White House for talks on the issue of Israeli homes in Judea and Samaria. When Netanyahu didn’t cave, insiders say Obama walked out on him to have dinner in private. No photographs of Obama and the prime minister were allowed. Is that how you treat an ally?
In 2011, an open mic at a G-20 meeting picked up then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy telling Obama that he could not “stand” Prime Minister Netanyahu and calling him a liar. Did Obama defend our ally? No. Obama reportedly said: “You’re fed up with him but I have to deal with him every day.”
In 2012, Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu on the Iranian nuclear threat when both men were at a U.N. conference in New York.
This year, just days after three Israeli teenagers were murdered, Obama penned a guest editorial for an Israeli newspaper. In it he strongly and repeatedly praised Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas’ commitment to peace. Netanyahu was mentioned once and only in passing.
Obama and Kerry have repeatedly leaned on Israel while they appeased the Muslim Brotherhood and the mullahs of Iran. It is difficult to take their “hurt feelings” over criticism from Israel seriously.
Obama Writes New History Of America
Sunday, the White House released a statement from the president celebrating Eid-al-Fitr, the end of the month-long Ramadan fast for Muslims. In the statement, Obama said, “Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”
I wonder if the president could nail down for us when all that “fabric building” and “democracy strengthening” took place. From 1776 until recent decades, there were very few Muslims in America. The vast majority of mosques in the country were established in the last 30 years.
I am sure many of these folks are good people, but it is silly to suggest that they have been central to the American historical experience. Someday perhaps we will see hundreds of thousands of Muslims marching in New York and Washington, D.C., against Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS and Iran. Then we can talk about fabric building.
I’m also still waiting for Obama to deliver a speech singing the praises of the Judeo-Christian contributions to the fabric of our society. The Founders were reading the Torah and the New Testament on their way to Constitution Hall, not the Koran. But I won’t hold my breath.”
