Obama the Jew

Obama the Jew
by JOSH GELERNTER
On Jewish matters, comparing Obama with his predecessors.

Last week, President Obama said that he is “the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat” in the Oval Office. Which means, he said, that when people say he’s “anti-Israel,” “it hurts.”

Since taking office, Mr. Obama has said many noxious things. Mostly overlooked was something he said at a meeting with Senate Democrats early this year: that he understood why the senators were opposing his deal with Iran, because (according to the New York Times) “he understood the pressures that senators face from donors and others.”

Mr. President, You are NO Friend of Israel

Mr. President, You are NO Friend of Israel
By Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison , CP Op-Ed Contributors

President Obama, you recently gave an interview to Israeli television claiming you are “the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office.” That’s so far from the truth even a GPS cannot find it.

First, there was George Washington. His address to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport in 1790 was the first time in history any national leader spoke to the Jews as fully equal fellow citizens. Then, there was Thomas Jefferson, who thought the Great Seal of the United States should have been the Children of Israel and their Exodus from Egyptian bondage. President Lincoln was so beloved by American Jews that they called him “Rabbi Abraham.”

Then there was FDR. President Roosevelt met the first King of Saudi Arabia. He didn’t bow to him, Sir, as you did to that desert despot’s son. But President Franklin D. Roosevelt insisted on holding Divine Services on board his warship, the USS Quincy, before his Sunday meeting with the Saudi king. Roosevelt got nowhere pleading with King Adbul Azziz for a homeland for the Jews. But at least he maintained his dignity and our national honor. . .

GOD’S NOT DONE WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE

GOD’S NOT DONE WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE

It’s no secret. The President of the United States, Barack Obama, despises Israel. But what is even more apparent is his hatred for Israel’s leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. We now know that Obama did everything possible behind the scenes to sabotage Netanyahu’s recent re-election. Fortunately, Obama’s attempts to undermine Netanyahu’s campaign backfired. When Israeli citizens saw Obama’s open disdain for their Prime Minister, it turned the election — which had been a tight race — into a landslide victory for Netanyahu.

In my opinion, Israel’s decision to re-elect Bibi Netanyahu may have been as much a vote against Obama as a vote in favor of Netanyahu. Even when Barack Obama first ran for the office of US President in 2008, polls showed that a vast majority of Israelis opposed him. Unlike a majority of American Jews at the time, Israeli Jews did not trust Obama. His very pro-UN positions on Israeli/Palestinian issues deeply concerned them. Yet, despite his well-known positions Americans voted him into power; then elected him a second time, fully aware of what he stood for.

Never forget… Never again

Obama decries anti-Semitism in Remembrance Day message
‘Never forget. Never again,’ US president says, joining European Union in call to combat ‘far too common’ Jew-hatred

US President Barack Obama called for a forceful stand against anti-Semitism in a message marking Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“It is incumbent upon us to make real those timeless words, ‘Never forget. Never again.’ Yet, even as we recognize that mankind is capable of unspeakable acts of evil, we also draw strength from the survivors, the liberators, and the righteous among nations who represented humanity at its best,” Obama said.

“With their example to guide us, together we must firmly and forcefully condemn the anti-Semitism that is still far too common today.

Netanyahu to Obama: Iran deal threatens Israel’s survival

Netanyahu to Obama: Iran deal threatens Israel’s survival
PM tells president agreement based on new framework would ‘legitimize Iran’s nuclear program, bolster its economy, increase its aggression and terror in Mideast and beyond

A nuclear deal with Iran based on the political framework reached in Switzerland between Tehran and the P5+1 world earlier Thursday “threatens the survival of the State of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told US President Barack Obama during a phone call to discuss the accord

Obama phoned Netanyahu hours after the framework was struck. Netanyahu has been strongly opposed to the emerging deal, arguing that it does not have the necessary safeguards and will pave the way to a nuclear Iran.

Official: White House was part of bid to oust Netanyahu

Official: White House was part of bid to oust Netanyahu
Senior Jerusalem source says administration wanted ‘revenge’ over Congress speech; declares there’ll be no Palestinian state ‘in our generation’

The White House was directly involved in an attempt to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last week’s general election, during a nadir in ties between the Israeli leader and US President Barack Obama, a senior Jerusalem official said Tuesday

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election, having been partially motivated by a desire for revenge over Netanyahu’s polarizing speech before Congress earlier this month, which sought to undermine the president’s key foreign policy initiative – a nuclear deal with Iran.

Obama Plots Revenge Against Israel

“…we’re on the precipice I think of real danger here. These next two years, there are no impediments, there’s nothing stopping him. This stuff is really, really scary. This is the stuff that Saturday Night Live skits are made of, except this is as real as anything. We have the leader of the free world, Barack Obama, the president of the United States, actually now planning on going to the United Nations to undermine our ally, Israel, in favor of our enemy, Iran, and I would dare say our other enemies, Hamas and Hezbollah.”
