Latest Times of Israel Piece

Mike L.

Obama's Contempt

As hard as it may be to imagine at this point, there are still people out there who think of Barack Obama as a president who is friendly toward the Jewish state of Israel.

Leaving aside Obama's behavior, let us remember that this president told American Jewish leadership that Israelis needed to "search your souls" to see if they really wanted peace and when that peace failed to materialize he claimed that "the parties have to want it," thereby implying that Israel doesn't want it, and now he has the chutzpah to claim that "Israel doesn't know what it's best interests are."

If he didn't have contempt for Israel he could never have made such claims.


  1. Careful, Mike. If you keep this up, you run the risk of being called a "bigot" by massive-guilt-carrying folks who, through their very own actions, make it quite clear that they miss the days of redlining and Jim Crow, de facto or otherwise.

    Off to read, I'll be right back...

  2. And commented.

    "If building suburban housing developments outside of any given country's major population centers was an accurate measure of a people not wanting peace, I'd then argue that we here in the US are clearly, by far, the most un-peaceful people to have ever existed in the history of the world.

    Until President Obama addresses that, I'd kindly suggest that he shut up."

  3. "Days after President Barack Obama was quoted as castigating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for ostensibly turning Israel into a pariah nation and threatening its long-term survival, Netanyahu hit back Saturday night, declaring that if he were to capitulate to demands for a retreat to the pre-1967 lines, “we’d get Hamas 400 meters from my house.”
