So it has come to this. Obama has notified Iran that an American “military option” is off the table, as long as Iran negotiates. I, for one, always knew that Obama wouldn’t use the military in any form. But being the blustery coward he is, Barack had to make the American people believe it was possible. The next step is to agree that there will be no inspections, probably in about two weeks. He’ll say we can keep an eye on what the mullahs are doing by satellite.
This is, of course, self-defeating. Perhaps Barack doesn’t understand that the Iranians will know when our satellites pass over their nation. It probably wouldn’t be hard to schedule necessary work around those flyovers. Keep in mind Islamic law permits lying to non-believers in order to attain Allah approved goals. But who should understand subterfuge and Islamic law better than Barack Obama!
So how far will Obama go in giving the Iranians what they want? In June 2010, word was leaked from the Defense Department to the Times of London that Israel had negotiated with Saudi Arabia to use their airspace to strike targets in Iran. Once word got out, the attack was aborted. If Israel had struck then, things may be totally different today in relation to Iran nuclear weapons.
And it goes even further. The United Nations, that bastion of Anti-Semitism, has received word from Iran that it will not allow inspections. Does anyone really think the UN will do anything? It has never enforced sanctions in the past, preferring to look the other way any time sanctions have been ignored. Should the United States expect different behavior in the future?
Showing a clear contempt for Israel, Obama agreed in part with the UN Human Rights Council when it declared Israel the world’s leading human rights violator. Israel does not ban headscarves or minarets as certain other countries do. She welcomes Arabs who want to remain peacefully in Israel, bestowing upon them all the rights of an Israeli citizen. And contrary to what has often been alleged by the mainstream media, Israel allows all citizens to vote, including Arabs.
We now have Juan Williams attempting to ramp up animus between Jews and African Americans in the United States. In my mind we have already had enough of that. Leave it to Jesse and Reverend Al. Both the African American and Jewish people know that there are more agreements than disagreements. And as in Ferguson, outside agitators are there to spark unrest and lead it in the direction they want it to go.
The next step, and it didn’t take long was to blame Black anger on Republicans. I know it makes no sense, but that is to be the next talking point. Because John Boehner invited Israeli PM Netanyahu to speak to Congress and Republicans agreed, as they should have, Israel’s government is now an extension of the Republican Party, according to Williams. After all, it makes the security of Israel a partisan issue. I am still waiting for Williams or any other Leftist spokesman to explain why Obama had his people in Israel, busing in Arabs to vote against Netanyahu. ANYONE?
This administration has called Benjamin Netanyahu “chickens**t and lazy.” Obama has complained to Putin about having to deal with him, The Regime also called the Israeli PM “offensive and inappropriate” for slamming Kerry for being messianic, a word not used lightly in Israel.
And yet in Afghanistan, where we have spent more blood and treasure over that last three years than anywhere else, former President Mohammed Karzai accused American troops of the indiscriminate killing of civilians. He also claimed his country had gone backwards in the 12 years American and NATO troops have been present. Was there anyone in this Administration that condemned THAT speech? ANYONE?
And is it POSSIBLE that a nation stuck in the 8th century could even GO backwards?
Not a peep, not even a twitter.
Will anyone in the Obama Regime have Israel’s back, or will the only democracy in the Middle East have to go it alone? Can we get an answer on that from anyone? ANYONE?
