Obama Visit ‘Strangles’ Israel

Now on the Eve of Passover we should be remembering that our salvation will come only from God, not the President of the United States.

Hundreds of thousands of Israelis will be adversely affected by United States President Barack Hussein Obama’s visit to Israel.  The Israeli media and political bigwigs may be all gaga with excitement, but most other Israelis are filled with total dread.  The main road from Ben Gurion International Airport a.k.a. Natbag (Ben Gurion Airport) will be closed for hours today and when he finally leaves.

The King David Hotel has been brimming with activity, getting dozens of suites ready for the “royal” entourage; the 15,000-strong police detail is gearing up to guard against security breaches; streets and highways are being cleared of cars and closed off; the foreign press is descending en masse from all corners of the globe and provided space in which to set up their computers, microphones, and cameras; the local media have been promoting the coverage they will devote to the hot event; menus are being planned, speeches crafted, and the newly crowned Miss Israel — an immigrant from Ethiopia — is excitedly awaiting the gala dinner at President Shimon Peres’ house, where she will be introduced to her counterpart, Mr. America.

And all this is in spite of Obama’s decision not to address the Knesset. Indeed, he claimed that the purpose of this trip was to “connect with the people.”

To this end, the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv invited college students from around the country to submit essays on why they should be selected to attend the president’s large-scale “meet and greet” at the Jerusalem Convention Center. Given Obama’s insistence on being surrounded by sycophants, one can only imagine the syrupy content of the chosen applications. One can also figure out why Ariel University students were told they may not enter the competition. (Ruthie Blum)

Many, many Jerusalem roads will be closed off periodically during the too long visit, as will roads going from his hotel, The King David, which is in the center of Jerusalem, to all of the various buildings he’ll be entering in addition to the south of Jerusalem when he goes to a from Bethlehem and the north of Jerusalem when he goes to Ramallah.  And that Ramallah visit means that the large, normally bustling commercial-industrial center Sha’ar Binyamin will be closed off from its only access road.

This visit, on the Eve of the Passover Holiday is so horrendously timed that all involved would be totally condemned for their incompetent thoughtlessness and selfishness.  I know that I have been blogging an awful lot about it issue, but I’m not exaggerating one iota.

We Jews are an ancient and distinguished people.  We should have the confidence to remember that.  We also must remember that our help and salvation comes from God Almighty, not from the United States.

What is the theme of Passover?

עבדים היינו לפרעה במצרים, עתה בני חורין Avodim hayinu liparoah bamitzrayim, atoh bnei chorin We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt; now we’re free men

Yes, that’s it in a nutshell.  It’s derived from the Bible,

Deuteronomy Chapter 6 דְּבָרִים. This is the time we’re supposed to remember that everything, including the State of Israel, our security, economic success and more are the gifts from God.  There is no human who can save us or help us.  This Obama-worship is a danger to the Nation, the People of Israel.

Davka, now on the Eve of Passover we should be remembering that our salvation will come only from God, not the President of the United States.

  1. Must reading here for EVERY crazy Jewish liberal who voted for this Moslem enemy!

  2. Except for the fact that a lot of help does come from the US in $$ and weapons, lol.

  3. Betty Ames says:

    GOD lead Israel out of Egypt, thru the red sea and drown their enemies behind them… GOD is still on the Throne. O is a pawn in the war between satan and GOD… but GOD is in control… and in the end satan will be thrown in the bottomless pit of fire for all eternity… stand up, call on our GOD who is GOD alone… plead the blood of YESHUA over O… it will change him or put him down as Nebuchadnezzar who was sent to the fields to graze wiht the cows for 7 yrs… Only GOD can do that.

  4. You know this Pesakh I wish Israel and Jews everywhere gain liberation from the US, and all the gentiles. It’s like we cross the sea of enemies on the back of a Christian crocodile.

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    Since Miss Israel was rescued from Eithopia and knows what hardship of being a Jew there, she can speak in her native tongue that Obama should understand from his Grandma and grandpa and ask Obama pubiclly to free Pollard since she knows what it is like to be incarcerated as murders of Amercians run around the world celebrating freely as a disparity of justice.

Unlike many Likud (including Yisrael Beitenu, Israel is Our Home, which ran with it as a unified party in the last elections) voters and most who voted for Naftali Bennett’s NRP aka Bayit Yehudi, Jewish Home Party, I’m not at all surprised that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has done what he swore he would never […]

My good friend Ruthie Blum and I don’t agree about the value of Bibi’s speech; she’s too optimistic.

Bibi speaks resolutely in forums like the UN but we don’t see that strength on the ground here.

Last night I attended the big festive celebration of ten years of Menachem Begin Heritage Center and Museum. Security was tight, almost like at a foreign airport, because both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Ruby Rivlin were to be there. And yes, they were and yes they spoke.
