We gave Obama credit for his initial reaction to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, namely that Israel “has the right to defend itself” against attack and that the Israelis will make their own decisions about their “military tactics and operations.” We recognized, however, that Obama would likely back away from this line if the conflict dragged on for an extended period of time. As it turned out, Obama reversed himself almost immediately. The Washington Post says as much in this report called “With Hillary Clinton’s dash to Middle East, Obama signals a shift in his approach.”
Anybody that takes anything at face value on what Obama says is a fool.6000 volt cattle prods can´t wake up half this country.Israel´s problems have nothing to do with their EBT cards getting re-upped.
Barry sees two advantages in sending PIAPS to Israel. First, she is out of the country and WAY TOO BUSY to testify before Congress about Benghazi. Second, it is very dangerous over there with incoming missiles dropping willy nilly.
i imagine Hillary may be regretting her decision to inject herself so prominently and physically into the so-called "peace process" as word emerges on the Tel Aviv attack on civilians on a bus. the quicksand of the Middle East has a reputation for swallowing bigger egos than hers.............including her husband´s.
What a terrible mistake Obama is for a POTUS. He renegs on his words which were a meaningless bait and switch just to get the Jewish vote again. He wears a mask of smiles which cover the real face of a charlatan liar. Netanyahuh "Do not listen to to BHO" he is a hypocrite" and a political philander.
If America´s Jewish voting block doesn´t care about Israel, why should conservative Americans? Romney received less than 30% of Jewish votes after four years of Obama´s neglect and rudeness towards Israel. If Obama is to be an updated golden calf to Jewish academia, entertainment, religious leaders and most of all, voters, perhaps conservatives should be equally unconcerned with Israel´s fate.
Have to agree with #13. I have no religious or ethnic ties to Israel. I do care that the only true democracy and country closest in line with our values, etc is constantly under attack. But the American people spoke this past November and unless Israel starts sending free cheese and cell phones to people in this country - who cares?
One shouldn´t equate what too large a number of American Jews feel about Israel´s fate and their vote for Obama, with what Israeli Jews themselves think about their country´s fate and about Obama. Obama´s approval rating amongst Israeli´s is abysmal, they don´t trust him at all, and American Jews living or visiting in Israel voted by a great majority against Obama in this past election. I´m for Israel and Israeli Jews regardless of what some American turncoat Jews think or do. Go Bibi!
Obama is a master of stating the complete opposite of what his intentions are (and the press dutifully reporting it without criticism), in this case I am not so sure. On the other hand, since his first inclination is to stand behind the Muslims, Paul´s analysis is probably correct.
If The Won II is successful in undermining Israel to the extent it and its people are exterminated he will have brought about the Biblical end times but with God (Judaism and Christianity) losing and Allah (Islam) triumphant. This would fit perfectly with this narcissistic demigod´s ambition and worldview.
#15, 85% of American eligible voters in Israel voted for Romney. The population needs help, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, firstname.lastname@example.org with the resources going for defense, other areas like food and medicine are needed. The first 3 casualties included a pregnant wife and mother and yesterday the first military man was killed.
Every idiot Jew who voted for Obama (and my husband and some of his relatives did NOT, but I have highly educated Jewish friends who did) should be G.D. embarrassed and ashamed. They tow the Democrat line, no matter that we have a totally inept and narcissistic amateur in office. I personally, and I am a Catholic, will never forgive them.
Zero said he would stand with his fellow Muzzies. TOTUS said Israel had the right to defend itself. So according to Candy Crowley, there is no conflict. Netanyahu should send PIAPS packing, citing a need not to let clueless amateurs interfere with the real world for the sake of a photo-op.
And for poster #13, ISRAELI Jews recognize Obama for what he is---he is wildly unpopular--- and shouldn´t have to suffer for ignorant American Jews.......there, by the way, are plenty of exceptions to this blindness among the Jewish community but the sheep don´t listen.
Too many pots boiling over for even msnbc to cover up the disasters coming and blame someone else. obama´s ´advance to the rear´ strategy is just plain week and cowardly and will not hold the wolves at bay sadly.
Hillary is a new variation of the human shield. Maybe Debbie Shultz will join her. They can sit by the rocket caches, at the Gaza hospitals and schools, sip wine and get to know the little Arab children.
Everything out of BO´s mouth has an expiration date. And I mean everything. During the first campaign, he boldly said what he would go after when he got elected. Too bad the takers just didn´t care. As for Israel, I am not too worried about them. They have God protecting and guiding them. Too bad the same can´t be said for this country.
Glenn Beck´s mercuryone.org has a donate button for Israel. His organization has donated $$ so planes can be left running so they can get off the ground quickly and also provide sleeping places for the pilots. Also, he said the reservists that were called up have to clothe themselves and they needed warm clothing.
FTA, "The administration knows that with Clinton on the ground trying to resolve the crisis, it will be harder for Netanyahu to make good on his threat to invade Gaza."
Perhaps Netanyahu is not all that concerned about what Obama thinks. Bibi remembers his brother´s bravery as leader of the Entebbe rescue and members of the team serve in Bibi´s cabinet. They understand bravery and bold action against their nation´s enemy.
I wonder if Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Weiner are planning any trips to Israel to visit his family any time soon to show off the new baby. Will they also take baby to show Huma´s Muslim Brotherhood parents her new baby?
#30,#31 & #32 thank you for your posts. Jews are scattered all over the planet for their protection. Any nation who doesn´t protect the Jews will be "cursed" & those who honor Israel will be "blessed" (proven in history). I have not one thread of agreement with anyone who is anti-semite & God will not protect our Republic if we do not protect Israel. I understand that some American warships were sent to Israel´s coast & I hope this is true. Hillary & BHO are from the darkside where the Sons of Hagar rattle their swords. Egypt is doing exactly what they have done for centuries & we helped kill off the one Egyptian who had a treaty with Israel. II Chronicles 7:14 we are not in charge!
The only surprise here is that Obama even stated initially that Israel has a right to defend herself. Some pro-Israel mole must have slipped this line in on his teleprompter. But come to think of it, we were in the middle of an election when he said this, right? Actually, the statement is contrary to the thinking of most Democrats. Obviously, now the election is over, Obama can rescind the comment.
The one thing that worries me is that Israel, if I´m not mistaken, depends on America for a large majority of it´s military hardware. They fly American made planes and the munitions they use are designed and made for those said aircraft. I know that Israel does have the capability of making some of their own equipment, but not anywhere enough to wage a large scale war against those that hate them. So, in that respect, Obozo does have Israel over a barrel.
Many American Jews sympathize with the Palis. They truly believe that the Palis are getting a raw deal. Christians are the greatest supporters of Israel because they are prescient enough to know how this all plays out in the end and wish to be saved. 0bama is an end-times deceiver that fools worship at their own peril.
The Israelis have over 200 nukes and the means to deliver them. If you are a camel driver you can throw camel dung at them, but a nuke is a nuke and if Israel thinks all is lost, then the entire middle east will turn to green glass.
And to think, we had enough stupid people in this country to elect this man for another term as our President and now I am hearing that ALREADY he and his supporters are thinking of making a way for him to run for a third term. What a country we live in now!. We are gone, doomed, never to be an "America" again. Our good days are over. Life will never be the same......
The line of demarcation is being indelibly drawn. Israel will stand, not alone but alongside God. Obie and Hillary are merely standing on the line for now but not for long. Pray for Israel and know they are God´s people.
Exactly, #15. Being a Christian, Israel is also the birthplace on my religion. I also have Jewish ancestors and I don´t want any of that country, it´s people or that heritage destroyed by a bunch of evil barbaric sewer rats.
Many Christians, adopted (grafted as described by Paul in Romans 11) by God´s grace into His family, believe that God has not given up on His chosen people, the Jews. We believe these still have a special place in His heart and continue survive solely despite many genocidal attempts by Satan´s pawns because God does not go back on His promises especially the one to Abraham about the descendents continuing to propagate in multitudes.
Obama may fancy himself as earning the most powerful individual position on Earth, but we know better. He has no power but what God has allowed for him to have. As with leaders in ages past, his time too will end. He will then have to answer for how he handled the power loaned for a time to him. Something tells me that it won´t be as comfy a time as he has with the MSM right now.
PIAPS is going to totally muck things up in the Middle East....and through the most amazing feat of prestidigitation, we will be reminded by the Press Whores about what a ´brilliant´ and ´accomplished´ woman Herself is...
#33 - yes, and thank G-d that Israel is nation of warriors, not wusses. They recognize the value of survival since they have been targeted for years.
I thank G-d that Bibi is in office. Had this happened during as Peres regime, he´d have given them more sand and land for nothing.
The happiest people in the ME are Arabs who live freely in Israel. The seculars in Israel need to wake up and recognize the One True G-d, too or He will continue to smite them like He had to thousands of years ago.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may those who love her prosper.
I have great regard for Israel´s capability to defend themselves, even as they are under assault from three direction, with or without "help" from the Current Regime in this country.
As for the American Jews not seeming to come to the defense of Israel, by their tacit and open support of the Current Regime, much of that may be explained easily enough, by the fact that many of them are not practicing religious Jews, and they have no sense of community with Israel.
#62 You can find the answer to your question by rereading the history of how Hitler did it to them...they acquiesce to get along and have a herd mentality, like sheep. Those gone secular think of liberalism like it´s air, not a threat. Few people see this attitude as the extension of European wars, but the Baath party and The Muslim bro´s are all outgrowths of the German Communism we call National Socialism. If these folks takeover, they kill Jews just for their name.,,,ignoring any reference to their being secular.

How many of the 12 tribes survived intact as Gods chosen people after the exile? Two is the answer and they became Judah and retained the promised land. The others mingled and mixed and married into the non jews who introduced them right back into worship of the golden calf and all things corrupt. They weren´t even left the name Israel and had to live as the hated land of Samaria

continued. Today you can draw the same picture . Those two tribes inherited the compact with God and are Israel while the others have once again put the golden calf first and will lose that birthright just as they did then. If you don´t understand the fact that they hung the real Jews out to dry or more aptly put-- allowed them to be mass murdered then find and read The Winds of War.
Last week the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing to discuss the way President Obama has overstepped his authority in enforcing—and not enforcing—the law with respect to ObamaCare and other topics. Though, as National Review noted in a report on the event, the members initially shied away from the “I” word, some eventually warmed to the notion that impeachment was an appropriate response to his decisions. That willingness to tiptoe up to a discussion about impeachment was celebrated by liberals like the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank who saw the hearing as a partisan waste of time as well as an
At the very last minute, Representative Steve Stockman filed today to run challenge Republican senator John Cornyn of Texas in the 2014 elections. Stockman, a darling of the grassroots with a penchant for controversial Twitter statements and headline-grabbing comments, is a very, very long shot.(Snip)Because Stockman filed so late, there aren’t any especially prominent East Texas Republicans running to fill his congressional seat, in southeast Texas’s 36th congressional district. As of 3:56 p.m., only Phil Fitzgerald, a former judge, and John Amdur (the address listed is a Houston P.O. box) have also filed to run for his seat. The surprising
Watching the twists and turns of American foreign policy while reading Christopher Clark’s The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 is an unnerving experience. Clark’s history, unlike many on the outbreak of World War I, starts not with the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in June 1914, but a dozen or so years earlier. He examines the muddled internal politics behind the foreign policies of major and minor powers — and how often they were incomprehensible to each other. He also shows how different powers formed shifting and sometimes unlikely alliances, with fateful consequences. Britain ended her
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Dan Rather, whose long tenure at CBS came to an unceremonious end in 2006 shortly after his own 60 Minutes report about then-president George W. Bush´s military service was retracted, decided to weigh in on the show´s current accuracy issues. There´s no love lost between Rather and CBS these days. After Rather was basically made to "retire" from the network a year after he´d lost his evening anchor spot, he sued CBS for $70 million (the case was dismissed). CBS did not include Rather in its JFK assassination 50th anniversary coverage last month, even though he worked for the network in
A question: Are Texas and all its agencies and local governments breaking the law? The answer is that they probably are, according to the Obama administration and its Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But the Texas attorney general, Greg Abbott, isn’t waiting for the EEOC to investigate and bring charges. Last month, in a preemptive strike, he sued the commission. The case is Texas v. EEOC. The EEOC enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in employment on grounds of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Under the law as amended by Congress, the
In the last few days Barack Obama has attempted to change the subject of public discourse from healthcare to income inequality, which he has dubbed “the defining challenge of our time.” Now he tells us! Since POTUS hasn’t paid much attention to this problem for the first five plus years of his administration, even with African-American unemployment through the roof and the middle class disappearing from American economic life, and with Rand Paul (of all people) the only one to come up with a concrete suggestion of how to elevate people out of poverty, as he has recently with Detroit, this should
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
