Durban II– Not only has he agreed to participate in this anti-Israel, anti-Jewish conference, but when US representatives attended their first meeting, they remained silent when the Holocaust was denied by the chairman of the committee, and when slanderous resolutions about Israel were passed.
Gaza Aid– The President has committed to give almost one BILLION dollars to rebuild Gaza. It is an impossibility that the money will not end up in Hamas hands. That money will be used to purchase more sophisticated weapons for the terrorist group to fire at Israel.
Clinton’s Admonition-As predicted the Secretary of State has fallen back to the positions she held before she was a Senator and need the Jewish Vote. Her latest move is to pressure Israel to Open up the Gaza crossings, in other words Israel giving up its only “chip” for nothing. I bet you Soha Arafat would give her another big hug and kiss for that.
Don’t forget some of the other early niceties such as Samantha Power, “engaging Iran” etc. Granted, some of the President’s appointments have been fine, but the problem is that the imbalance is obvious and becoming more glaring every day. In addition, positive actions might be easily reversed while the problems show more profound policy trends.One of the things that has struck me the most during this past week was the massive hypocritical chutzpa of people like Martin Peretz who ignored all of the pre-election warning signs to urge the Jewish Community to vote for Obama. Now he seems surpised that Obama is moving against Israel. Peretz failure to pull his head out of his “posterior” helped Obama get 77% the Jewish vote. Now the President has made his new mantra official,”F**K The Jews They Will Vote for US Anyway.”
