Obama supports radical Islam in the Middle East. There is no other way to explain Obama’s bizarre behavior in relation to Libya:
June 2011: “President Obama’s decision to involve U.S. military forces in an unconstitutional, unexplained mission in Libya has left many Americans seeking answers and action from Congress.” Although Obama had previously shaken hands with Libya’s dictator Gaddafi, Obama ensured Gaddafi’s demise and opened a window for radical Islamists to take over Libya.
September 2012: The U.S. Consulate in Libya was destroyed by radical Islamists who killed 4 American diplomats on the 9/11 anniversary— it turns out that Obama’s State Department had credible information that the attack was going to happen 48 hours prior, but didn’t warn the American diplomats they were in danger. During the attack, there was an urgent request for military assistance that the Obama Administration denied. After the attack, Obama and his administration lied to the American people and said the attack occurred because of spontaneous mob reacting to an anti-Islam youtube video, and was not a terrorist attack. Obama also referred to the deaths of the 4 American diplomats as mere “bumps in the road.”
October 2012: A known ringleader of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya walks freely in the streets of Libya without fear of arrest. The only person arrested was the creator of the anti-Islam youtube video.
February 2013: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has now testified that Obama was absent and didn’t communicate with him at all on the night of the Libya terrorist attack— and the next morning, Obama was figuratively absent, leaving “operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, “up to us.”” While Americans were under attack in Libya, Obama– with his priorities completely out of whack– was making a 1-hour call to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu “to defuse a controversy about President Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu two weeks later at the U.N. General Assembly.”
Obama apparently felt that his lengthy anti-Israel record wasn’t long enough: he has nominated anti-Israel pro-Iran pro-Hezbollah pro-Hamas former Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
- The head of the Anti-Defamation League has this to say about Hagel: “What I find more troubling is, he had sufficient time to distance himself from the ‘Jewish lobby’ quote, to explain, and he hasn’t… He let it stand. I find that more troubling than the original statement. He sees it out there, he sees it being seen as this truly conspiratorial view, that the Jewish lobby controls foreign policy, and there’s no comment.”
- Hagel has called for “direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks with the Government of Iran.” This indicates that he believes the genocidal terrorist regime of Iran, with its leaders in power because of a fraudulent election, is a legitimate “Government.” Hagel has a long record of opposing sanctions on Iran– “he was one of two senators to oppose the Iran-Libya Sanctions Act in 2001.”
- Hagel was “one of only 12 Senators who refused to write the EU asking them to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization.”
- Hagel called for direct talks with Hamas (which is already designated as a terrorist organization by the United States).
- In 1999, Hagel “was the only member of the Senate who refused to sign a letter opposing growing anti-Semitism in Russia.”
- In October 2000, as terrorists attacked Israel during the Second Intifada, Hagel “was one of only 4 Senators who refused to sign a Senate letter in support of Israel.”
Hagel, being a “Republican,” should inflame the opposition of liberal American Jews even more. Yet, Jewish groups are “softening resistance” on the Hagel nomination after the fact. American Jews who support Obama’s bad decisions more than they support the existence of Israel are violating the First Commandment.
Update: “Chuck Hagel said Israel is on its way to becoming an apartheid state during an April 9, 2010, appearance at Rutgers University… Hagel also accused Israel of violating U.N. resolutions, called for U.S.-designated terrorist organization Hamas to be included in any peace negotiations, and described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “radical”.”
It’s easy to lose count of how many times Obama has insulted Israel (America’s #1 ally in the Middle East) and its Prime Minister Netanyahu. Here are only the latest stories:
- Obama snobbishly stated that “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu does not understand what is in Israel’s best interest.”
- After Netanyahu won re-election in Israel, Obama didn’t congratulate him for almost a week.
Update: “John Kerry will skip Israel as part of his first trip abroad as secretary of State, the Obama administration announced Tuesday… Kerry will instead visit nine nations in Europe and the Middle East – Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qatar.”
Apparently, Iranian diplomats don’t like hot dogs– Obama’s “diplomacy” strategy against the genocidal/terrorist regime of Iran is officially a complete failure. Not only is Iran ramping up its nuclear program and proxy attacks against Israel, but now Iran is threatening to conduct kidnapping attacks on American diplomats and religious leaders. Obama’s pseudo-intellectual elitist opinion that “talking” to Iran’s radical leaders would solve this U.S./Israel national security threat deserves an “F” grade.
Obama won re-election with 69% of the American Jewish vote, despite the very long list of Obama’s anti-Israel policies and actions during his first term. After hundreds of rocket attacks from Hamas, Hillary Clinton has now announced that Israel has a “lack of generosity” and a “lack of empathy” for Palestinians. Israel, which drops Arabic leaflets warning civilians to get out of the heavily-populated civilian areas where Palestinian terrorists purposefully place their rocket launch pads before attacking– Israel, which voluntarily withdrew from Gaza in 2005 without any concessions from the Palestinians and received nothing except rocket attacks in return– Israel, which offered Palestinians 91% of the West Bank, all of the Gaza Strip, and half of Jerusalem while Arafat was in power despite the fact that Israel legitimately acquired the territory in a defensive war– is not “generous” or “empathetic”?
Apparently Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Obama Administration would have us believe that the Palestinian culture and government are “generous” and “empathetic”:
The “Arab Spring” soon revealed itself to be the “Arab Winter” under Obama’s failed foreign policy. As we recall: Obama openly supported Morsi by encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, and then invited the virulently anti-Semitic Morsi (the Muslim Brotherhood’s new leader of Egypt) to meet with him. Now, Morsi has seized “absolute power” in Egypt and is being dubbed the “new pharaoh” by rioters. But Egyptians aren’t the only ones who now live in a more dangerous world: some believe that Egypt has become “the new Iran” constituting a huge threat to both U.S. and Israeli national security.
1 week after Obama got re-elected, Israel was attacked by hundreds of rockets from Gaza. There is a report that at least one rocket was fired from Egypt into Israel– Egypt, which Obama helped turn from a relatively pro-U.S. regime that supported Israel’s efforts to defeat Palestinian terrorists into a Muslim Brotherhood radical Islamist regime that now attacks Israel in an act of war. The Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has even visited Gaza to condemn Israel for defending its borders from these terrorists’ rocket attacks.
We have learned that Iran now “has finished installing nearly 3,000 nuclear-fuel production machines at its underground military facility near the holy city of Qom, providing Tehran the capability to double its production of medium-enriched uranium in the coming months.” So this is the result of Obama’s “diplomacy” and “tough” economic sanctions on Iran: IRAN CONTINUES TO GET CLOSER TO ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. And, how predictable: Palestinian terrorists are currently firing Iranian-made missiles into Israel. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons: you can bet that terrorists around the world will acquire them too.
This photo from Drudge Report says it all:
The only thing between total destruction and the Jewish people– an ancient, long-persecuted religion and culture (which has been the object of repeated attempts at genocide)– is modern military technology: the “Iron Dome,” a device that intercepts the terrorists’ missiles in mid-air.
November 6, 2012: Obama is re-elected.
November 14, 2012: More than 200 Palestinian rockets explode on Israeli territory, and “Israel moved closer to an all-out ground war with Hamas Thursday, as Israeli planes, tanks and gunboats pounded suspected militant positions in Gaza in retaliation for another day of Hamas rocket attacks that left at least three Israelis dead.”
Conclusion: Obama’s re-election has emboldened radical Islamic elements in the Middle East. And terrorists are continuing to propagandize Israel’s efforts to protect itself.
