Then in the Spring of this year, the Obama Administration began rapidly  revising  federal counter-terrorism training materials in order to eliminate references to Jihad and Islam. The Islamists, it appears have used their influence to bring about this dramatic change.  They even have succeeded in limiting what the FBI can say to its agents.

In the first three years of his administration, Obama has openly undercut Israel in the peace process and showed great disrespect to PM Netanyahu.  He cancelled the assurances given by Pres Bush to Israel in 2004 which included secure borders, no right of return to Israel, and no return to ’67 lines.

He came out strongly against all settlement construction, demanded a construction freeze, and refused to acknowledge that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel or even that Jerusalem was in Israel.

Finally, he proposed that the settlement be based on the ’67 lines with minor mutually agreed adjustments. This was totally in line with the demands of his new friends headed by Saudi Arabia.

Having gotten away with all this with little political damage, thanks in part to J-street and the main stream media, he instigated a change in the Democratic Party platform.  The new platform, was silent on Jerusalem, silent on where the refugees must return to and silent on Hamas, The previous platform provided “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel…It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths,” “refugees” should be settled in a future Palestinian state, not in Israel and “The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements.”

The new platform also removed the commitment to maintain Israel’s military superiority.

In effect these omissions removed traditional support for Israel’s positions thereby aligning the American position with that of the Palestinian Authority.

The new platform also removed reference to God.

So loud and angry was the reaction expressed by the media and ordinary Americans that Obama did damage control by asking that the wording on God and Jerusalem be restored. Such  amendment required a 2/3 majority vote. The Chairman had to put it to a vote three times in the hope of getting it passed. He finally declared it passed, though the lack of a 2/3 majority was clearly evident. The Democrats reacted with a chorus of boos.

What remained of the original amendments was that there were no longer assurances about what Hamas must do before acceptance, that the Palestinian refugees need not return only to Palestine and that the Democrats were no longer prepared to ensure Israeli military superiority.

The most threatening of these omissions was the one on refugees. Israel has long maintained, with full support from left and right, that there will be no return to Israel by the refugees. She considers it an existential threat and thus non-negotiable. The Democrats, led by Obama, couldn’t care less.

Finally, Obama has opposed Israel in every way possible to prevent her from attacking Iran. In the latest outrage, Obama assured Iran that if Israel attacked, the US would not be complicit and that if Iran would not attack US forces, the US would not join Israel in the attack.

As a result of Obama’s policies, Israel finds itself surrounded by countries ruled by a hostile Muslim Brotherhood from Tunisia to Turkey which are supported by Obama, alone in its fight against the Iranian bomb and friendless in the peace process.

It seems the anti-Israel constituencies in the US are making progress.

It takes great optimism or belief in the Almighty to be confident that Israel, a nation of seven million, can stand up to the hostile forces arraigned against it, including this administration, and avoid its eradication.

But confident, I remain.

  1. Good analysis, I read this earlier at Arutz 7. Unfortunately, most American Jews are politically naive & woefully uninformed & continue to support this enemy of Israel & the Jewish people, Obama. Nothing bothers Leftists as much as the American people's overwhelming support of Israel.

  2. As long as I can remember…the NY Post has been pro Israel.

    Some salient facts: The State Dept has been opposed to Israel since DAY 1; 'j'udenrein street founder ben ami is recorded giving a speech calling the founding of the State of Israel the "greatest single tragedy of the 20th century"; obama's security adviser powers has called for a "US led NATO invasion of Israel to return the lands to the indigenous Arabs and return the Jews to Europe"; The publishers of the NY Times converted away from Judaism years ago when Jews finally started taking them to task for their repeated AntiJew postings and giving both self-hating Jews (ie:Friedman, Kissinger, and Chomsky) as headliners while refusing to publish articles that push the debate to the center – the publishers are Episcopalian NOT Jewish!; no one has ever questioned chairman barack's hatred of Jews and Israel, using the nazi soros as his personal paymaster and puppet-master; The DNC platform – the original – was written and presented by obama personally – the DNC admitted that when it was released; the "revised" platform still calls for the eradication of Israel!

    All that said – and there being more – this is an excellent analysis. While all polls show close to 80 % of the US public support Israel (an all time high) and consider the palis amongst our 5 top enemies, a great deal of money is being infused to change that. LIke the last nazi, obama is surrounding himself with a few kapos to appear being legitimate. The Jews today are different – we ARE prepared to stand up, we ARE prepared to fight back and defend ourselves, and we are prepared to deal with kapos like the traitors they are.

    BOTTOM LINE: Any Jew voting Democratic this year should read Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion first. At least be educated as to what to expect under a second "g-d in his own mind" obama term. soros has already made the black shirts and swastikas (this time it is combined with the creescent of islam) readily available to join the obama 'cleansing' of Jews!

    "Contrary to the wishes of Mubarak, Obama insisted that the Muslim Brotherhood be invited notwithstanding that Mubarak had banned them. Mubarak himself chose not to attend. A year and a half year later, Obama threw Mubarak under the bus and supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover of Egypt."

    Multiple lies here. The MB won over 80 seats in the 2005 (rigged) parliamentary elections in Egypt. It had come to a *modus operandi* with the military long before Mubarak stepped aside. The Mubarak regime allowed massive arms smuggling into Gaza once the MB's local branch, known as Hamas, took control. And the recent election that the MB basically won was free and fair.

    "In 2011, Obama joined forces with Qatar and Saudi Arabia in order to bring down secular Gadaffi of Libya. He was killed later in the year. According to the Telegraph UK the Muslim Brotherhood expects to take power in this week’s upcoming elections just as their counterparts did in Tunisia and Egypt."

    At least make you lies credible. The elections in question occurred in July, and the liberals won (contrary to the expectation of the Telegraph).

  7. Todd Kadish says:

    Charlie is it true that the Jewish Press is considering hiring you as ombudsman?

  8. Libya is in a state of anarchy. Obama must think Libyan lives are more valuable then,Syrian,since he premise for his involvement was to avoid many civilian deaths caused by a civil war. Could the real reason of been oil flow for Europe? Predicted that soon Libya also will be MB controlled since most of the fighters their are Muslim Radicals.MB did take over Egypt with Obama's blessing,what lie by JP are you crying about. One would think your a MB supporter from your post!

  9. Charlie Hall says:

    Shmuel Stephen Rockwerk At least three lies: on the relationship of the MB to the Mubarak regime, that Obama supported the MB in the election, and that the MB would be winning an election in Libya this week. The election was two months ago and the MB lost. The last one isn't merely a lie, it shows that the author is so interested in slandering Obama that he doesn't even check the dates on his alleged sources!

  10. Obama pressured the military to stop outlawing the MB and let them run in election, fact! and they were the only organized political opposition to the military.Their will be more Libyan elections, the gov does not control Libya…..

  11. Charlie Hall says:

    Calling the President of the United States a Nazi is beyond the pale. it is an insult to the six million.

  12. I believe the bottom line in all of this is that If WE Jews in the world do not accept our role In bringing the world to a state of "Love your neighbor as you love your self" then we are all lost.
    We do not necessarily have to go to temple and so forth, but we do have to change our ways of viewing our neighbors.

    We are connected all 7 billion of us that inhabit this planet and if we do not change the way that we use this connection from to take advantage of and gain pleasure from no matter the cost, into love thy neighbor as you love self then there will be a form of Nazzi-isum that will make Hitler look like a school kid playing in the playground.

    That the reason the world is hating on those of Jewish faith because we have the answer to the crisis in the world and are not implementing it.

    We That are of the Jewish Faith have leaned this from our studies from childhood to adult hood and yet we still get caught up in the ideal of making money over everything else. If the American Jews do not wake up and shift their focus to one that supports love of friends rather than love of pocket book then call it a day as this world will be lost and Nature her self will bring a reckoning that you really do not want to have to go through.

    It is all up to each and every one of us when we change how we treat our neighbors to love instead of hate, then the world…. Nature will start to balance out but if we do not change to love of friends with no thought of self then we are all doomed and well…. it is all in the hands of the Ones G-D chose those that are called The Jews of the world……

  13. George Elliot says:

    Charlie, John Burton Chairman of the California Dem Party made a comparison of Gobbles to a Republican as did two other heads of state Dem Parties. I agree that the term Nazi should be confined to those who lived in Germany in WWII and before. BHO is not a Nazi. He is a Marxist however who uses some of the same techniques as the Nazis.

  14. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Gotta disagree a bit George: The term "nazi" can be used to define anyone or any group who has in their grand scheme a mass extermination of Jews. chairman barack's policies do include that

  15. Linda Raynor says:

    I agree with you completely. What happened to "Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself"? We all live in this world together and why would we want to believe non corroborated reports from haters.

The upshot of the Levy Committee Report will be that Israel will end the de facto building freeze and start construction of settlements in earnest.
