Let's look at just a few of the example that indicate how Obama really feels about Israel and her courageous Prime Minister, Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. Oh, there are many more examples but for the sake of brevity I just want to offer a few which make it clear where Obama and his administration stands relative to our best and strongest ally in the turbulent Middle East.
Use of the term ISIL instead of ISIS when referring to the scourge of terror known as the Islamic State which occupies a large land mass in Syria and Iraq. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria while ISIL is short for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Take a look at the map above and you will see that ISIL includes Israel. Obama, by using the term ISIL, is hinting that he acknowledges that Israel is not a sovereign state but, rather, just a component of the land claimed by a terrorist organization.
Lack of respect for the Prime Minister. The clearest example was several years back when the Prime Minister, in Washington on business matters, made a courtesy call on the President in the White House. The President left him waiting for two hours while he had dinner with his family then had him ushered out the back door. It kind of reminds me of one of the stories Obama would tell about his brethren back in the desegregated America days; talk about a slight and one not likely to be forgotten and done by a man who should clearly no better. There has never been a President with less class.
Sending signals to the enemies of Israel that America is not serious about supporting the Jewish state. Obama continually sends aid to the Palestinians, dollars that are meant to be used for building schools and hospitals but instead are used for tunnels to help terrorists sneak into Israel. And what do you think a New Yorker would say if a foreign power tried to tell them what they could or couldn't build in New York and where? That is what Obama and his State Department minions continually try to accomplish with regard to Jerusalem, the real center of the Jewish world as well as our Christian faith, the City of God.
Condemning Israel on the public stage and holding Israel responsible for the Middle East conflict. Every time that Hamas or Hezbollah starts firing away with their human shield-protected missiles, when Israel responds Obama and his UN "buddies" always blame Israel and demand that Israel unilaterally cease fire. Imagine if missiles were coming into your town and the government said you weren't allowed to defend yourself. Outrageous.
Ignoring the real danger which is ISIS and Iran. While Obama rails about Israel's supposed horrific actions, he has sent representatives to work with Iran, which in Obama lingo really means give them anything they want. And, of course, we've all seen the administration refuse to call extreme radical Islamic terror just what it is, with the result weakening our standing as a world power. Frankly, the rest of the world sees Obama as the ninety-seven pound weakling in the old Charles Atlas ads.
Finally, Obama is actively working to defeat Netanyahu in his reelection this March. He has sent a group of some fifteen political operatives to work with the opposition party in Israel and he is using federal tax dollars to do it with. Thank goodness that Senator Ted Cruz has raised the question but, as we all know, the main stream media will probably try to hide it on page thirty-eight. But the question is, why would a President spend American tax dollars on a cause that he knows is wrong and that his people oppose? I think we all know the answer.
Friends, we only have a few allies in the Middle East with Israel being the strongest and the most willing to fight her own fights. Egypt, under General el-Sisi has stepped up to the plate regarding Islamic terror and there is now a fatwah out for his head. And the Jordanians, as small and weak as their country is, have stated courageously that they will not cave to death threats.
But here's the real deal. Israel is and always has been the key to peace in the region. Without a democratic Israel supported by America as we've always previously done, the future will make the Arab Spring look like a Sunday school picnic. Bibi Netanyahu, a former highly decorated soldier, knows what must be done and I'm glad to know that his voters are starting to rise up. You see, Israel is a democracy and the Left exists there just as it does here, always trying to eliminate the truth and the power needed to keep it alive.
We Americans need to tell the Obama Administration to quit meddling in Israel affairs and put a full court press in support of the Jewish State into force. And hopefully, when Bibi Netanyahu gives his speech to the joint session of Congress in March, the pressure will build and Obama will finally face reality and relent.
Stand with Bibi against Islamic tyranny. Remember, if the Mullahs are ever successful in destroying Israel, they are then coming for us, who they call the "Big Satan". Join me in standing for Israel, the land of both Abraham and Jesus Christ. Pray for peace with strength in the Promised Land. God bless.
