Obama is a Disaster, but Israel Must Applaud Him

Despite Obama's disastrous Middle East policy, in practice, there have been no real, material, or huge problems in direct U.S.-Israel relations.

And thus Israeli leaders should applaud Obama, say what a good friend he is, and do everything possible to maximize cooperation on the critical issues that both countries face. These include continued military and intelligence cooperation as well as the maximum possible support on Iran and other issues. In this context, Israel—like every other country friendly with the United States able to do so—retains its independence of action while minimizing friction.

People like me are free to express our views about the damage he is doing. That damage is first and foremost to U.S. national interests; second to the lives of people in Arabic-speaking countries, Turks, and Iranians; and only in third place to Israel.

  6. Obamabot!! LOL Never said a word about Obama. He or any other goy should not loom so large in Israel, and we should never make covenants with the goyim. It’s never worth the cost. Let them pay tribute.

    Killing 14 Al Qaeda leaders isn't "effective"?

    Also, the Muslim Brotherhood is the ruling party in Egypt, but not in Tunisia.
