Obama silent on 'Palestinian' television glorification of Fogel murderers


Israel Matzav reminds us there has been no reaction from Obama over the recent PA Television tribute and glorification of the murderers of the Fogels.

"Where is Mr. Friend of Israel, President Barack Obama? Why isn’t he condemning this glorification of a brutal act by the Government run by his buddy President Abbas? Palestinian State TV runs segments praising terrorists on a regular basis—but the US President and his Administration insists on criticizing Israel’s building of new housing units, saying, “this kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations.” Tell me, how many children had their throats slashed because of a new Israeli apartment in Jerusalem?"



  1. "If you were to suggest in a public forum that just possibly Israel's
    failure to reach a peace agreement with a terrorist organization, run by
    kleptomaniacs and homicidal maniacs, which still continues to applaud the murder of Israeli children,
    might possibly be due to the terrorists and not because of Israel, then
    according to the consensus of the left, you are an Israel Firster.

    The paradigm of the Israel Firster only works if you assume that the
    America First position is to support Islamic terrorists. Even if we were
    to dismiss the threat of Islamic terrorism to the United States then a
    position sympathetic to the territorial claims of Islamic terrorists in
    Israel would still not be the America First position, it would be the
    Muslims First position....."

  2. The "Israel Firster" charge is a way of telling Jewish people that if they care about their fellow Jews in Israel then they cannot be good Americans.

    How's THAT for a kick in the head?

  3. The Palestinian Authority continues to incite genocidal anti-Semitism among their people, yet Barack Obama thinks of that if Jews lay a nail to a 2 by 4 within an existing Jewish neighborhood beyond the "green line" they are the obstacle to peace.

    It's just remarkable.

    And then we have "progressive" Jews agreeing with them, which is even more remarkable.

    I tell ya, the whole I-P situation needs to be rethought through entirely.  And at the very least we must acknowledge that because Oslo is dead we need to think outside of Oslo categories. 

  4. It also assumes, wrongly, that it is not in America's best interests to support Israel strongly. Given the region, that is nonsense. But, political ideology will do that.

    What boggles the mind is that those on the left are now using a meme of the far right. Hmmm...

  5. Why have the come to believe this stuff, Dan?

    Decades of Arab propaganda aimed at western liberals.

    The Soviets told Arafat, "Look, you've got to stop talking about driving the Jews into the Sea.  Instead, you need to frame this as a matter of the national liberation of the 'Palestinian' people."

    Yup. That's a large part of it.

    And, also, extremely importantly: the gradual aqcuiescing appeasing acceptance, and propagation, of this perverse untrue narrative, by Stockholm-syndrome affected Jewish people (almost all Jewish people - including myself, in the past) - and, particularly, Israeli Jewish leaders of the government of Israel, and, even more so, other Jewish so-called "elites" - Israeli Jewish and non-Israeli Jewish academics, Israeli Jewish and non-Israeli Jewish journalists, and Jewish non-Israeli so-called "Jewish leaders".

    As has often happened to/with Jewish people. As happens to chronically psychologically besieged people.

    However, now Jewish people need to wake up and be mindful and do right action to protect themselves from harm. Which will also protect the whole world from harm.
