A SAD PSALM

Jerusalem Turned Obama into a Preacher of False Hope

Israel inspires in Obama what has fired up almost every US president – a simplistic Christian belief of “turn the other cheek” that reflects total ignorance of the Middle East.

He knows that no Jew except for the most extreme leftists ever will give up sovereignty over the Old City, let alone the Western Wall and signing off the Temple Mount forever, until the next war.

He knows that no Muslim who wants to stay alive ever will declare he is ready to give up the de facto  Muslim control of the Temple Mount.

That omission is part of the simplicity and ignorance that comes through looking at the Middle East through Christina American eyes.

When an American president starts preaching only to his own people, the Middle East will be a far safer and better place to live.

  1. Jeanne Myers says:

    "Good American Fundamentalist Preacher"? You're sadly joking here right?

  2. This is myopic rubbish. No answer about Jerusalem? What, Tzvi, would you have the American President do, pick a side? Fund an Iron Curtain? You don't seem to have a grasp of Barack Obama's world view, and calling him "Preacher Obama" makes you appear as partisan as an Alabaman Tea Partier.

    You really do sound like an absolute fundamentalist.

    Also, why is his hand so big?

  3. Any nation that recommends Israel to be split will suffer a split in their own nation. Obama needs to keep his own nose at home and tend to his own flock. We dont need another prophetic harbinger.

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.”
