You Better Watch Out; You Better Not Pout


You better not cry I'm telling you why....Obama is coming to town.

Obama to visit Israel in spring for first time as president

White House confirms that US president plans to visit Israel in spring but date not yet decided; Channel 10 reports that trip was made possible by a promise to launch the Israeli-Palestinian peace process....



  1. This is going to represent Obama's most significant offensive against Israel.

    I was hoping that in his second term he would back off a little, but apparently not.

    What we are going to see are Obama's people calling for settlement freeze, whatever that means exactly, and Abbas claiming that the "Palestinians" cannot negotiate with the Israelis without one.

    Then the EU and the UN and the international left will again condemn Israel for building housing within existing communities in Judea and Samaria.

    This is all a foregone conclusion.

    If you have eyes to see, watch.

    The only question is what kind of sanctions that Obama and the Europeans will lay on Israel, as he leads from behind, after the failure of talks.

    In any case, nothing good will come from this and the potential for damage is high.

    I have to say, given the Hagel nomination and sending weaponry to genocidal anti-Semites, and now this, I did not expect Obama to come out swinging this hard against the Jews.

  2. Of course there will be some last minute change of plans requiring him to go to any other Mideast nation instead. Everyone knows that. He's NEVER going so the question you have to ask yourself is why would they make up this stupid claim in the first place. Obama's favorite Israeli party, Kadima, barely made 2 seats in the Knesset and that was only because of a rule requiring a default membership. There's no upside for anyone to go and no political leverage Obama can extract by going. No he should stay home or go anywhere else. Go to Gaza, go to Damascus, go to Tehran. Make another stump speech for the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo. No one in Israel cares since Obama polls at about 5% favorable in Israel. One thing Israel can do is announce that they're winding down all military cooperation and announce a timeline where all aid from the US ends. Since 75% of it by law has to be spent in the US that's $2.2 billion per year cycled back to the economy. Announce that they're pulling out of the F-35 program and give the US a timeline to remove their ballistic missile radar station from the Negev. Last but not least, offer the US a deal – move the embassy to Jerusalem or it will be downgraded to a trade mission.
