Obama in the Funhouse
If Palestine were to lay down their guns tomorrow, there would be no war. If Israel were to lay down theirs, there would be no Israel – Benjamin Netanyahu
Watching Beaurat Obama work the Middle Eastern diplomatic scene is like watching a fat man cruising the funhouse arcade and finding himself before a distorted mirror. In it the fat man sees his dreams come true; he’s slenderized to the point of anorexia and he grows in height and stature. This is what Obama is experiencing right now as he makes unbelievable statements concerning Israel and its relations with the Arabs.
Obama said during his trip to Israel that: “As long as there is a United States of America, you are not alone.” But, it’s Obama’s stance Israel must make peace with its Arab neighbors and expatriate population chose to leave Palestine in 1948 under pressure from the Arab community. These people were not driven out. They left voluntarily.
“Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land,” Obama said. “The Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and their justice must also be recognized. Put yourself in their shoes, look at the world through their eyes. It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own, living their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements … every single day.” (Associated Press)
The Israelis have tried to make peace on a regular basis. They’ve been extorted and bombarded with missiles and negative press because they respond to homicidal attacks with a firm and equivalent response noted in the biblical sense as an “eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”; that a punishment should be a worthy equal to the crime committed. Where the PLO and Hamas have tried committing genocide in their attacks, Israel has surgically struck the combatants where they live.
Hamas’ spokespeople decry the deaths of innocents in Israeli counterstrikes. There’s NO outcry from the world community when Hamas kills Israeli innocents with rocket attacks and suicide bombers. The world community needs to remove its head from between its loins and catch a breath of fresh air involving integrity and honesty.
Beaurat’s ability to smile duplicitously in Netanyahu’s face is the stuff of legend. Obama said Israel would have to return to pre-1967 levels. Netanyahu was far more diplomatic and measured in his rejection of the premise, but it politely and sincerely showed Obama to be the stupid, incompetent fool and Islamophile he is.
Obama needs schooling on the natural topography of the region and its effect on strategy and tactics in war. To return the Golan Heights to Arab control would be SUICIDE YOU IDIOT! It’s the one place overlooking Israel allows the entire landscape to be bombarded with artillery.
Now Obama wants Palestinian children to have their own home. They had one in 1947. It was described as a goat path by the Balfour Declaration of 1917 and showed little advancement until 1948 when the independent state of Israel was created by United Nations mandate. Then, and only then, after the Jews developed and irrigated paradise, was Palestine considered desirable by Arabs.
Obama has had a chance to understand personally what Israelis endure on a nearly daily basis. He was in town when Hamas started driving missiles into settlements in Israel not far from where he spoke. Israel is, 2½ times the size of Rhode Island. It’s only 260 miles at its longest with a 112-mile coastline. Israel is 60 miles at its widest, and less than 9 miles at its narrowest!
Hamas has called Israel the “aggressor” against all Arab peoples. If fighting a people killing my children makes me an aggressor then so be it.
For Obama to seek the post-masturbatory glow derived from catering to Arabs and Islamists is stupid and dangerous. It endangers how the world sees America. It shows American policy as uninformed, duplicitous and treacherous. This is because Obama is duplicitous and treacherous.
Dismantling Israel isn’t the way to earn that next Nobel Prize dummy.
Thanks for listening
