The Secret Document that Set Obama’s Mideast Policy

In August 2010, Obama ordered a secret report on unrest in the Arab world.

First, to help overthrow U.S. allies before someone else does so and somehow we will benefit from being on the right side.

Second, to ignore who takes power afterwards because somehow they will be better than their predecessors, somehow we will be more popular with them, and somehow U.S. interests will be preserved.

Landler definitely thought he was making Obama look good. Instead, I think, he was really showing us that the bad thinking and disastrous policy was planned and purposeful.

  1. Nothing like pulling down allies and siding with enemies.

  2. Obama, the mouthpice for a "One World Government" under the Califa… acting out his role, just like a true muslim would…

    I've been pointing out President Obama's personal foreign policy agenda since early in his first term, but that doesn't mean I think any other potential president would have fared any better. They have those same blinders. You can't listen to what they tell you to get elected. You must read the small print. Very few Americans in general are not hidebound in their own life fantasy, very few have the desire to dialogue. Even on this site, if you read the comments, with few exceptions it is just people spouting off.

    The facts are that Iraq has been a fractured mess since the US invasion, Ben Ali was no asset, Mubarak was no friend, Ghadafi was one of the most evil rulers of the past half century, and that there may not be any good guys in Syria (at least none with any power). Obama had the foresight to realize that Mubarak was not going to live forever and to side with the good guys in Libya. And in fact, Morsi has actually been better — so far — than Mubarak in numerous respects (something I would have never believed possible).

    This is a clear analysis of the long-standing prevalence of USAmerican subjugation to Islamist threat. Should this all not be US' diverting tactics to the world? He, with Muslim Oba. flirting (he thinks he is still on the sly) with enemies of the world, compatible blood attracts its kind. Where to, world? Look up, your help is from ABOVE.

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Ayatollah Hossein-Kazamani Boroujerdi, in better times (left) and in his prison cell (right).

Boroujerdi was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed.”

Senior Hamas and Fatah leaders in Gaza City on April 22. Hamas and Fatah signed a deal to establish a unity government, but since then little progress has been made.

Fatah: Hamas stole relief aid for Gaza and distributed it amongst its followers in mosques.

Can teenagers seriously be expected to behave properly when they are surrounded by so much suggestive material? Is it fair to expose them (and ourselves) to so much temptation and then tell them, “Just say no”?

Washington remains ignorant of the need to dismantle alliances with various Muslim countries.

Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority cannot even agree to move their clocks back on the same day.

Shemita is about relating to each other by temporarily eliminating gaps of wealth power & status

Last week the president announced a four-point plan. Unfortunately, there’s little buy-in from our European and Middle Eastern allies. Here’s my own four-point plan that may be more palatable to our allies.

Rosh Hashanah has an obvious connection to God’s Kingship. We constantly refer to Him during the Asseres Yemei Teshuvah as Melech/King. The nusach of the tefillah, referring to Rosh Hashanah as “a remembrance of the first day” (of Creation), implies a certain dimension of divine kingship operating at the time of Creation and replicated every […]

Yes, God judges, but His judgment is that of a loving father who longs for his child’s quick return.

Anti-Semitism has returned to the mainstream of European society and Israel has become its focus.

If the Obama/Kerry peace deal does go through, what would the risks be?

Let me make it plain. There will be mass murder, even genocide in Syria.

A large number of pro-Obama and radical or even anti-Israel cadre are Jews.

Does anyone think the Palestinian Authority will resist daily attacks from Hamas and Fatah radicals?

Secret Service security arrangements were overruled.

The Obama Administration plan is very simple, assuming that everything goes smoothly–which of course it will not.

The less you know about Islam, the better. Ignorance is strength.
