Ambassador Oren: Samantha Really, Really Cares about Israel

Michael Oren knows his job. Never agitate the US. Don’t say Israel’s right when the US “knows” it’s wrong. It’s no wonder he praises Samantha Power, but must he say she “really cares” about Israel?

Samantha Power really cares about Israel, says Ambassador Michael Oren.

The problem with Power is not just her “invade Israel” policy that she advocated in her 2002 interview with a professor from, naturally, the University of California at Berkeley.

She is pro-American just like she is pro-Israel.

Anti-Americanism proves that the United States is wrong, in her opinion. Power stated in a New Republic article in 2003, “Much anti-Americanism derives from the role U.S. political, economic, and military power has played in denying such freedoms to others… We need a historical reckoning with crimes committed, sponsored, or permitted by the United States.”

She is a fighter for human rights, so much so that she likes the idea of using the American military to police Israel, the Balkans and Libya.

Interestingly, she never has said that the U.S. Army should patrol the streets of Iran.

Or Syria.

Or Saudi Arabia.

    I see confusion?

  3. As bad as this appointment is, we can't lose sight of the fact of the appointer, as opposed to the appointee.

    I'd like to see this defeated in the Senate, if only to rebuff Obama's ideological agenda. But we should be under no illusions that even if this unlikely happy outcome occurred, he'd just nominate someone else just as bad.

    I'm about the same age as Obama, and I went to schools of comparable prestige during comparable time frames. I've never met him personally, but I've had umpteen housemates, assistant professors, colleagues, etc., who thought and talked like Obama…and Samantha Power, for that matter. Sadly, their kind is the standard product of the liberal arts departments of what passes for "elite" academia these days.

    Our univiersities, and our journalistic institutions, and increasingly, our national government is saturated with these left wing, socialist academia snobs who have never worked an honest day in their sorry lives, and wear this gross personoal deficiency as a badge of honor. They believe that they are "too good" to get their hands dirty with direct experience with the real world, and being "above it all", know what is best for the rest of us.

    What has been stuffed into their heads by their less than worthless, left wing professors is that America is the cause of all the world's problems. Their duty, as they see it, now that they are at the levers of power, is to make "America safe for the world". This is to be done by an outrageous policy of appeasement of our enemies, and betrayal of our allies, first and foremost Israel.

    Obama is too intellectually cloistered and insecure to be able to face any real argument against his agenda. Hence, he appoints these other facets of his "echo chanber"…he has spent the whole of his adult life being told how "brilliant" he is by such people, and his ego is used to this. Why should he stop now? This is not about making America a better place…this is about one humoungous ego trip for Barack Hussein Obama!

    Fortunately (?), I think it is possible – not sure about this, only "possible" – that Obama & Co. are SLOWLY learning the hard way via experiences like Benghazi that maybe trashing the U.S. and her allies such as Israel, while burrowing their colective noses up the hindquarters of our mortal enemies, maybe is not such a great idea. I don't see his administration as being at the head of some grand conspiracy to "destroy America"; rather, it is left wing academic lunacy run amok, in the manner of the fabled sorcerer's apprentice.

    January 2017 can't come soon enough. Hopefully, the GOP will take the Senate in '14 and Obama will be impeached or forced to resign before then.

    The lady is just not very intelligent. http://www.israelvideonetwork.com/obama-appointee-as-us-ambassador-to-the-un-calls-for-invasion-of-israel
    that was just stupid…. Shows she has no clue but is willing to talk despite being unaware…..

  5. Any one indicated by the Sultan cannot be smartest than himself…So, what the americans expect from that indication…
    In contrast Nixon knew his own limitations and pick the wise guy Kissinger.
