Israel and the Obama Administration

7 Oct

For years, both Democratic and Republican Administrations have been strong supporters of Israel.

Some have argued that the Obama Administration and its policies towards the State of Israel are more supportive than past administrations … and others have argued that it is less supportive.

The Federation wants to know what you think about the issue!  Please share your thoughts with us!

Thank you!

    Asking Israel to return to 1967 borders, asking Israel to halt settlements, sending billions in aid to Hamas run Palestinian territories, giving Netanyahu the cold shoulder when he visited the White House is hardly indicative of this administration supporting Israel. How many of you know that during Obamas presidency he has travelled extensively to arab/muslim nations, visiting many mosques , even visiting some in the US but not a single visit to Israel or a synagogue there or here?
    How many of you know he says the most beautiful sound to his ear id the Muslim call to prayer and that he recites it in perfect arabic? Obama and his friends Ayers, Wright, Holder, Farakhan are no friends to Israel and the sooner our Jewish American community realize it the better.

    President Obama gave a nice speech for Israel in the UN recently, but he is a political animal to the highest degree, and he did so because he knew that he was losing the Jewish vote [as exemplified by the NY Democratic defeat in a district that was Democratic for nearly 90 years. The issue was Obama and Israel].

    In my mind, President Obama deserves to be place alongside Jimmy Carter as the most harmful and hostile Presidents ever…. to the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel.

    Why Obama seeks to remove Israel’s only bargaining chip, and refuses to recognize a prior U.S. written Commitment to Israel by the Bush administration; and persists in undermining Israel and its Jewish population at every opportunity is inexplicable.
    .
    Charles Kauthammer writes:
    “How Obama has undermined Israel’s negotiating position. He is demanding that Israel go into peace talks having already forfeited its claim to the territory won in the ’67 war — its only bargaining chip. Remember: That ’67 line runs right through Jerusalem. Thus the starting point of negotiations would be that the Western Wall and even Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter are Palestinian — alien territory for which Israel must now bargain.
    The very idea that Judaism’s holiest shrine is alien or that Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter is rightfully or historically or demographically Arab is an absurdity. And the idea that, in order to retain them, Israel has to give up parts of itself is a travesty.”

    I am a life-long Democrat and I will never, ever, vote for Obama or his cronies again.

    I too am disturbed at the Obama Administration’s not so subtle attempt to threaten, isolate and punish Israel for not simply abiding by what Obama thinks is a just plan in the Middle East. Obama’s plan seems like a plan for the elimination of Israel in the long run.

    Let the boarders return to the 67 boarders, not the 1967 boarders but the 67 boarders. Sad to say President Obama sounds much more supportive of the Muslim world than Israel (except for support of radical Jewish people who are decieved and do not support their own people world wide or Israel)
