Obama And Israel (I)

Reader David Fass’s suggestion (Letters, Sept. 7) that the Obama presidency has not been a disaster for Israel, and that another term would not be even more of one, needs a reality check.

In the Egyptian revolt, Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood rather than Hosni Mubarak, who had a good relationship with Israel and the U.S. Can anyone say with certainty that Obama would not turn his back on Israel under any circumstances? Highly doubtful.

What’s worse, in this case Obama supported an enemy of the Jews, Israel and the U.S.

During Obama’s presidency, Iran has lost all fear of and respect for the U.S. Not seeing that turn of events as potentially disastrous for Israel, not to mention for the rest of the region, is shortsighted and naive.

Then there was Obama’s infamous assurance to the Russians that after the election he’ll have “more flexibility.” This clearly indicates he has a greater fear of voters than allegiance to his party. If our missile defense system is not safe from a shift in policy, can we be certain Israel is?

There is every indication that four more years of Barack Obama could have disastrous consequence on more than one front.

Obama And Israel (II)

Re “U.S.-Israel Military Exercise Downsized” (news brief, Sept.7):

The downsizing of the planned joint military exercise is the latest evidence that Israel does not loom large in President Obama’s thoughts and that the situation will be even more serious should he be reelected. He had already kept Israel out of international conferences on combating terror.

When will all the mindless Jews who vote Democrat no matter who is on the ticket finally wake up?

Democrats And Israel

The Democrats’ decision to remove the 2008 plank affirming that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital city from the party platform could never have happened without Obama’s approval. The decision to put back the plank was rammed through over the angry objections of a majority of delegates who do not want Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital.

It should be perfectly clear to every Jew that the pro-Israel Democratic Party of Senators Henry “Scoop” Jackson and Daniel Patrick Moynihan is dead.

UN Boss’s Bias

The bias of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon always appalls me. He just issued a statement about the plight of the poor Palestinians in Gaza who are ruled by Hamas. He does not seem to feel that the poverty they are experiencing is due to Hamas’s habit of continually allowing rockets to be fired at Israel`s civilian population. That, of course, is the cause of Israel’s blockade of Gaza.

Why is it so difficult for him to say to Hamas that Israel cannot be expected to stand idly by while its people are under constant threat of death, and that in order to ease the blockade the rocket attacks on Israel must stop? By his words the secretary-general is telling the world that Israel is of no account; that only the Palestinians matter and they can do anything they want.

Local Politics (I)

Your endorsement last week of Assemblyman Dov Hikind left out an important piece of news. Not only did an unknown candidate with an Irish-sounding name get 40 percent of the vote in Hikind’s overwhelmingly Jewish district in 2010, which you indeed pointed out, but Brad Lander, who ran in 2009 for City Council with Hikind’s very strong support, got only about 20 percent of the vote in areas overlapping Hikind’s Assembly District.

In their zechus may we all come to appreciate that life is a fleeting gift and resolve to spend every precious moment of it as if it were the last.

In any event, Mr. Netanyahu after the election sought to soften his statement on Palestinian statehood and apologized for what he conceded were remarks that “offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli Arab community.”

A worthy idea any way you look at it.

There is something quite distinctive about the biblical approach to time.
