President Obama is demanding Israel stop their offensive against Hamas and limit themselves to destroying tunnels, even as missiles are being lobbed into Israel and even though Israel is the victim. This is at the same time that Israel’s mortal enemies are calling for her destruction.
Since the Morsi-Clinton faux peace deal, Israel has suffered through more than 2,000 missile attacks.
Iran’s revolutionary guards announced Wednesday that they have missiles that could destroy Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, but that has not deterred Secretary of State John Kerry. He is in Israel forcing himself on Israel as a negotiator as if Israel were the ones in the wrong.
Hamas is Israel’s imminent threat, but there is a more serious threat. Iran presents an existential threat in the region as they move towards having the bomb.
The people Kerry is negotiating with in Iran seek the destruction of Israel. They support Hamas and Islamic jihad. Once they have the bomb, there is little doubt that they will use it against Israel.
Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, speaking to Iranian college students on Wednesday, said that the only solution for the region is the destruction of Israel, and that the armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza.

“These crimes which are beyond imagination and show the true nature of the wolfish and child killer regime, which the only solution is its destruction,” the ayatollah declared.
“The only way to deal with this savage regime is to continue resistance and armed struggle and extend it to the West Bank,” the official IRNA (FARS) news agency quoted Khamenei as saying.
Referring to Israel, Khamenei added, “This event is a sample of the ‘violent policies with iron fist’ which the fake and illegitimate regime [Israel] in its 66 years of existence has repeatedly and proudly conducted.”
He then emphasized, “As said by Imam Khomeini [the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran] Israel must be destroyed…However, until that time with the help of God for this cruel and murderous regime to be destroyed, strong confrontation with steadfast armed resistance is the only solution against this destructive regime.”
“We believe that the West Bank needs to be armed just like Gaza and those interested in the future of Palestine must become active in this field [guerrilla warfare] so that the suffering of the Palestinian people through their strength and their weakness due to the Zionist regime is reduced,” he said. “Some Western countries including America and filthy England defend with clarity the crimes that no ordinary person would. The President of America in the face of these child killings, destruction, torture and suffering of the people in Gaza, with a comical logic states that Israel has the right to defend itself! Don’t the Palestinians have the right to defend their lives and security?”
In June, Barack Obama told graduates of West Point that the real war was the war on climate change. The Ayatollah responded by saying America hasn’t the guts for battle and “America cannot do a damn thing”. That is the ongoing message they get from Obama.
Can you imagine if Egypt was still under the dictatorship of the Muslim Brotherhood and Mohammed Morsi as Obama had hoped? Israel would be in far worse shape.
During a 2010 interview, Morsi said this about peace with Israel: “No reasonable person can expect any progress on this track. Either [you accept] the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war. This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”
Barack Obama will give another $47 million to Gaza for “humanitarian” aid which they will undoubtedly use for rockets. He is giving $11 billion in military equipment to Qatar, a sponsor of terror. He negotiated with Qatar for the release of the Taliban terrorists and they clearly support Hamas.
What message is he sending to Israel’s enemies?
At least two U.N. schools in Gaza hold Hamas missiles and Obama has said nothing. Obama fully supports the U.N.
Mr. Obama has empowered Israel’s enemies through his policies.
