Obama's Hypocrisy

Michael L.

The tidbit below was written and published by the Jerusalem Post staff:
US President Barack Obama marked the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht on Friday, saying that the 1938 pogrom in which Nazis burned synagogues and murdered Jews across Germany serves as an example of what silence in the face of hatred can bring.

"I join millions of people in the United States and around the world in marking the 75th anniversary of the tragedy of Kristallnacht – “the Night of Broken Glass,” Obama stated. 
"On November 9 and 10, 1938, Nazi paramilitaries marched under the cover of darkness throughout the towns and villages of Germany and Austria smashing Jewish storefronts, arresting Jewish men en masse, ransacking Jewish homes, burning books and littering the streets with the parchment of sacred Judaic texts," the US president stated.
The blatant hypocrisy is just mind-numbing.

Ayatollahs and imams throughout the Middle East scream for the blood of the Jews and, yet, Obama and the rest of western political leadership say not a single word.  And, yet, on the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht Obama gets all teary-eyed.

If Obama actually cared he would denounce current day Koranically-based genocidal hatred toward the Jewish people, but he does not.  It is just soooo easy to condemn the Nazis for what they did 75 years ago.  It's just so convenient and easy, but if Obama had any principles he would speak out against contemporary Jew Hatred, but he does not.  On the contrary.  He promotes it by suggesting that the Jewish people only have certain prescribed places that we may live and that Jewish townships in Judaea (of all places) are "illegitimate," whatever that means, exactly.

What a bunch of hooey.

Is this dork for real?  Does he read his own words?  
If he finds silence in the face of hatred so abhorrent, why is this man so deafeningly silent in the face of incessant Palestinian Arab Jew-hatred?
Precisely.  That's all that I am saying.

Was the speech a mandatory, unpleasant ritual, or did the words come from the heart?
I am going with "mandatory, unpleasant ritual."  The guy has to keep up appearances, after all.

HYPOCRITE.
Well, I am clearly not the only one getting the point.

What a pathetic joke. Obama talks about the consequences of silence in the face of unmitigated hatred. Some folks have no problem about lamenting the fate of a bunch of dead Jews but are prepared to do nothing in the face of unmitigated hatred against Jews today. Yeah, what we need are more memorials commemorating the senseless murders of Jews yesterday. Today? Well, that's another story.
Alright.  You guys get it.

It's around 8:15 AM on Saturday morning and I am still in my jammies.  Today we're going to the Oakland farmers' market where, hopefully, the falafel guy will be around and then we're going to the Grand Lake movie theater to see Thor because Laurie, much to my ongoing amazement, is a huge fan of the superhero genre.

You guys have a great day.

  1. Obama and his base genuinely believe that the Holocaust - while they still admit it happened - is really overblown and no big deal. Little more than a big disagreement. Obamaworld is a world where everyone is equal - Jews are equal to Nazis and all their history is merely the disagreements of equals. There's never good and evil right or wrong - merely 'competing narratives'.

  2. And dead Jews deserve the obligatory crocodile tears. Living Jews, not so much.

    Kristallnacht may be a moment in history for most of the world but for Jews the poisonous anti-Semitic hatred it spawned is very much alive and well in the present.

  3. Depending upon how you define 'his base,' there actually certainly is such a thing as bad and evil to them. A number of them certainly consider even two-time Obama voters like myself to be The Bad Guy, at least when I'm voicing dissent or criticism of his policies. The Reagan-style hero worship is quite strong in many of them.

    That all being said, I'm going to have to disagree with your first sentence. There are certainly such people out there, but I doubt there's much overlap with the president's supporters, and he himself certainly believes no such thing.

    1. I have no quarrel there, aside from perhaps their problem with people like me, but then I suppose that's an internecine issue with no bearing to the main topic at hand.

      Nihilists? If only they had an ethos...

  5. The biggest hypocrisy is the silence everyone is expected to show for the Al-Nakba of the Palestinian people who can not hope for another D-Day landing of US troops to come to their rescue.

    Hypocrites!

    Luckily, not all of us are silent.

    1. Hey, fanatical far-right racist. I have asked you some questions.

      Including, fortunately for you, even a 'Nakba' one!

      What are your thoughts about the 1969 public hanging of 9 Jews in the middle of Baghdad, for public entertainment?

      I understand you may not have the brainpower to keep up with the rest of us, but it would be appreciated if you'd at least try to make just one non-trollish comment while Mike still tolerates your disgusting presence here.

      Typical!

      And by the way, you already have your answers to your questions pal, perhaps you might want to try to prime your own dull mind before judging mine.

    3. Well certainly there are parallels between the PLO/Hamas and their ideological forefathers, the SS so if anyone's storming ashore a-la Normandy it's likely to push you all the back to the Reichstag.

      I can appreciate your dour mood though. The French have stood up to both the Iranians and Obama and told them, their deal was junk and to get stuffed.

    2. I'll give you that. When your ilk finally succeeds in ethnically cleansing Europe of its last million Jews you will declare victory. But like the Arab world which already did that, it didn't end antisemitism there either in fact rhetorically it became worse. So we fully expect that once you purge your Europe, your France your Portgual your Spain of all their Jews (again!) that your screams and Jew hate will only be louder. This is fundamentally why no one ever has to take you seriously. Because whatever happens the Jew haters' reaction is always the same.

      Face it, you're never going to uninvent Israel, never. Oh you can pray for a nuclear holocaust but that's not very likely to happen either. In the meantime though pout and scream like a 3 year old about that. We'll be over here building robotic human hearts while you and yours are knife fighting one another over who's turn it is to sodomize the stable boy tonight. Because in the longer run, the greatest revenge anyone can talk on you is to let you alone and be the cave dwellers you've always wanted to be. If or when there ever is a bona fide 'palestine' you'll muck it up on purpose so you can whine and cry to the world that what's left of Israel at that point isn't yours. But having a so called state of your own will be a catastrophe for you. Because 1) the world will stop paying attention to you and 2) you're incapable by design of owning your own problems. Your society has always been doomed and the day it's declare the 'palestinians' are legitimate will be Day 1 of the 'palestinian' civil war. And it will be spectacular.

    3. A prescient comment on cifwatch.com:

      Jeff wrote:

      "...You see, the strategy for such people, as is the historical case with anti-Semitism, is to load up on accusations to keep the Jew in the dock defending him/herself, to keep all eyes on the supposed misdeeds of Jews and wipe clean the brutality and ugliness of those who wish them harm. ..."

    4. - Number of Muslim states in the world: Over fifty

      - Number of officially Christian states in the world: Several

      - National states in the world: Numerous

      - Number of Arab national states in the world: Over twenty

      - Number of Jewish national states in the world: One

      - Population of the Jewish national state: Approximately 7.5 million

      - Arab non-Jewish citizenry of the Jewish national state: Approximately 1.5 million - Muslim Arab, Christian Arab, Druze Arab

      And, by the way, any newly re-founded national country would have citizenship laws of "right of return" in order to populate that country.

      And, by the way, several countries have citizenship laws by which people whose parents' nationalities are of those countries can be automatically granted citizenship of those countries.

      And, by the way, anyone, whether or not they are Jewish, can apply for, and be granted, citizenship of Israel, in the same way that anyone can apply for, and be granted, citizenship of other democratic countries.

      "Article 19: Zionism is a colonialist movement in its inception, aggressive and expansionist in its goal, racist in its configurations, and fascist in its means and aims. Israel, in its capacity as the spearhead of this destructive movement and as the pillar of colonialism, is a permanent source of tension and turmoil in the Middle East, in particular, and to the international community in general. Because of this, the people of Palestine are worthy of the support and sustenance of the community of nations."


      The 1968 Revised, and Current, PLO Charter
      http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/plocov.asp

      "Article 19: The partition of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time, because they were contrary to the will of the Palestinian people and to their natural right in their homeland, and inconsistent with the principles embodied in the Charter of the United Nations; particularly the right to self-determination."

      "Traces the history of PLO/Fatah, now better known as the 'Palestinian Authority,' the organization that will govern a future Palestinian State. The video shows how PLO/Fatah emerged from the German Nazi Final Solution. Hajj Amin al Husseini, father of the Palestinian Movement, creator of Fatah, and mentor to Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas, was co-director with Adolf Eichmann of the death camp system that exterminated between 5 and 6 million European Jews in WWII."

      WHAT IS PALESTINE? WHO ARE THE PALESTINIANS?
      http://vimeo.com/77053361

      "The video dispels certain myths concerning the origin of the name 'Palestine' and of the 'Arab Palestinians.' It documents that the 'Arab Palestinians' are in fact mostly from other places, and migrated to what is now Israel at the same time as the Zionist Jews, many of them because of the economic boom that the Zionist Jews produced in what was then British Mandate Palestine. The Zionist Jews did not steal the 'best' land from Arab landowners but in fact purchased abandoned desert and swamp land from absentee Arab landlords who were quite eager to sell. This was explained by Hajj Amin al Husseini himself. Husseini, father of the Palestinian movement, launched his fourth terrorist attack against the Jews of the Mandate in 1936-39. The violence was so great that the British sent a team to investigate. When questioned, Husseini admitted that the Zionist Jews had not stolen anybody's land but in fact had bought it. In fact, Husseini had been among the major consolidators and sellers of land, and growing tremendously rich by it."
