Israeli bomb hits Hamas PM’s office.
Rockets are raining down on Israel and they are on the brink of war. President Obama said nothing in support of Israel until late Thursday, after every European leader offered support. Obama’s anti-Israel, anti-Semitic sentiments have empowered her enemies.
White House coordinator for the Middle East Philip Gordon spoke at the Israel Conference on Peace in Tel Aviv, July 8, 2014 casting undue blame on the tiny country of Israel as the rockets rained down on them from Gaza, as reported by Pamela Geller.
Gordon was chosen by Obama and is his special assistant. When he speaks, it is as a representative of Obama’s views.
Drawing moral equivalence between the actions of the two countries, Gordon appealed to Israel and Palestine to make the compromises needed to reach a peace agreement, even though one of the countries has formed an alliance with a terrorist group.
Gordon claimed that Israel is occupying Palestinian lands in the West Bank and by doing so is dehumanizing Palestinians.
As a representative of “Israel’s closest friend” he wondered aloud, “how will [Israel] have peace if it is unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation and allow for Palestinian sovereignty, security, and dignity?”
He apparently didn’t notice the rockets from Gaza (Hamas) and Lebanon.
This is the man Obama chose to represent our country. Obama is a supporter of the U.N. and everyone anti-Israel. He is himself anti-Semitic.
Gordon, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Barack Obama want Israel to pull back to 1967 borders and allow a two-state solution, though the borders will be indefensible. To those three, all will be right with the world if they do. They think this is the case while rockets bombard Israel, hundreds daily from the country they freed.
Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said unbelievably.
Abbas if reliable?
Only 30% of Palestinians want a two-state solution while 60% want Palestine fully restored and Israel gone.
He wants Israel to negotiate with the Palestinian Authority (PA) under Abbas who has formed a unity government with Hamas-Fatah, terrorists who have sworn to destroy Israel. Hamas recently celebrated the kidnapping of the three murdered teens.
This month, Jen Psaki, State Department spokesperson, remarkably said that there is no evidence the PA is working with Hamas as she explained away our continued funding of the PA and their terrorism to the tune of $500 million a year.
ISIS has declared a caliphate in Iraq and Syria, countries that are now without borders, like the U.S. Our withdrawal from the world stage has allowed Islamo-Fascists and communists to run amok in the Ukraine and the Middle East. The one democracy in the Middle East – Israel – should be garnering sympathy and support but instead, we demonize her and betray her at every turn in favor of the Fascists.
There is little resolve to fight the threat of jihadi Islam in the United States or Europe. Europe has absorbed millions of destitute and uneducated immigrants from Africa, the Middle East, Ethiopia, and the former Soviet Union which has left them with national security and financial problems. The US is now doing the same with refugees from around the world and an invasion by illegal immigrants on the southern border.
The EU is in so much financial trouble that they are going to count “sinful behavior” as part of their GDP. The sex and drug trade are all revenue generating enterprises for the EU according to an article by the NY Times Thursday. EU statisticians have been calling sex clubs and asking them if they knew the average price of a session with a prostitute in Spain.
Several of the EU countries including France have fallen behind Israel economically. Their success is shared by the 25% Palestinians and others in their country but it is ignored by Western countries and the media.
Our media along with our administration has a strong anti-Israel bias.
The governments of five of the largest EU economies: Germany, France, Italy and Spain, UK, as well as the Netherlands have urged businessmen nationwide to stop investing into Israeli settlements in eastern Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and the West Bank. Jerusalem was never supposed to be in consideration and settlements are nothing more than apartment buildings. This is the direct result of a campaign by terrorists who are infiltrating EU and US campuses.
John Kerry warned Israel to watch out if they fail to go along with the bad deal for peace he was offering. His veiled threat against them was of a boycott, insinuating the U.S. would also boycott them.
Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin is making a fool out of Obama. He’s been making overtures to Israel and in the last few days, in a meeting with rabbis, he said that he supported their right to defend themselves.
Our president has repeatedly chimed in with the EU in criticizing Israel and constantly rails against “settlements” but has said little about attacks on Israel.
Most frustrating is when Israel is attacked, what he does say is that both sides have to “show restraint.”
The NY Times had a deplorable anti-Israel piece today titled, Killing of Palestinian Youth Puts an Israeli Focus on Extremism. Never mentioning the brutal killing of three Israeli teens last month, they demonized Israel and Israeli youth, portraying them as right-wing extremists.
When the three Israeli teens were murdered, Psaki told both sides to show restraint.
Gov. Huckabee had the best comments on that:
Israel enjoyed popularity after the Holocaust and up until the Exodus and the 1967 war. Since then it has been a continual eroding of respect and a complete disregard for their worth.
The Arabs refuse to recognize Israel as a state and the world is going along with them, seemingly unaware of the natural order of things – they will be next. Supporting those who only think of destruction and annihilation bears a heavy price to be paid at some later date.
Israel has never stopped a Palestinian state. They gave back Gaza and have been subjected to ongoing bombings from Gaza. Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, Israeli prime ministers, both offered the Palestinians a state, only to be rejected by first, Yasir Arafatm and then Mahmoud Abbas.
Israel’s enemies want her to return not to 1967 borders but to 1948 borders. They want them destroyed.
Palestine wasn’t a state to begin with. It was a transit point between countries.
Obama has offered to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza while saying at the same time Israel’s security rests in their accepting a two-state solution. He is saying this as the rockets batter the Iron Dome from the country that was supposed to be a free Palestinian state.
His last brokered deal was between Hillary Clinton and Mohammed Morsi. It was a fiasco. The peace lasted mostly a month. Israel has since then had to take daily poundings and has not been able to defend herself. She is alone.
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister told a news conference Friday that Israel will continue its offensive until rocket fire out of Gaza is halted.
He says he has had “good conversations” with a number of world leaders in recent days, including U.S. President Barack Obama and European leaders, but”No international pressure will prevent us from acting with all power,” he said.
According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove. His approval rating is highest among Muslims. A recent survey by Sov Hashavua found that 70 percent of Jewish Israelis do not trust Obama to safeguard their nation’s vital interests in negotiations with the Palestinians.
