Obama Administration Makes War on Israel
Commentary, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 8/14/2014 9:48:37 PM

What on earth? In the middle of a war this country’s president publicly says is justified owing to the relentlessness of the rocket fire against civilian populations, U.S. officials proudly tell the Wall Street Journal, they are holding up weapons transfers to Israel: They decided to require White House and State Department approval for even routine munitions requests by Israel, officials say. Instead of being handled as a military-to-military matter, each case is now subject to review—slowing the approval process and signaling to Israel that military assistance once taken for granted is now under closer scrutiny. These transfers were taking

Hussein supported the Muslim brotherhood, therefore it is reasonable for him to curtail arms for Israel.

Obama will have Susan "The Truth" Rice approve all Israeli request for weapons and ammunition on an individual basis. For ex, if Israel needs 3,000 artillery shells, the IDF will have to submit 3,000 detailed requests, including specifics on the proposed targets, the risk of collateral damage to civilians and the impact on climate change.

Rice will then scrupulously review each order, including the proposed impact area, the density of civilian population and the shell´s contribution to greenhouse emissions. During the review process Obama will reassure pro-Israel contributors that he stands with them.

Obama´s goal has been obvious: to encircle Israel by intentionally overthrewing two neutral/allied Arab countries(Egypt, Libya, attempted Syria), leaving a vortex to be filled by enemies(aka Islamists) of Israel. He wanted a coalition to fight Israel but alas it backfired and he goes to/provokes war with diminished resources. Iit did not work out too well for him. Israel can and will just get their resupply, new weapons elsewhere if need be-Obama outdone once again. Obama is quite the Islamist snake.

Israel should use their tremendous strength and drive Hamas into the sea as flotsam of dead bodies. Ultimately wipe them out without letting up. No more cease fires.

This piecemeal strikes routine and cease fires will go nowhere and Israel will still be hated by the squatter in OUR HOUSE and the entire muslim world.

It´s probably about time for Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Barbra Streisand, David Geffen, Larry David, etc., etc., etc. to have another huge Hollywood fundraiser for Fueherbama.

I remember when 0bama carried Florida in 2008 and a news crew was interviewing an elderly Jewish woman down in South Florida. She was asked who she had voted for and why. She said she voted for 0bama primarily because she supported Israel and the Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin "scared her to death".

Our tin-pot JV ´messiah´ either forgot (or because he is NOT a Christian does not know) Who marches with Israel. I choose to think this is part of God´s plan where he moves all nations away from Israel so that He can do something Jaw-droppingly Awesome for that country; then everyone will know that HE is the Lord.
Psalm 37:3 ´but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.´

Putt and his ´hissy fits´ are truly embarassing; he is not even fit to be in the same room with Bibi.
If I were Bibi I´d forget about cease fires and just get it done. He will be villified either way.

To add to #7 ~ my advice to anyone living or vacationing in DC is NOT to be anywhere near the WH on a stormy day just in case those lightning strikes go astray!

"Obama Administration Makes War on Israel"

War on Israel? Seriously? Putting in place a couple additional administrative hurdles is the equivalent of making war?

"In the annals of American foreign policy, no ally has ever been talked about in this way."

Hyperventilating, clothes-rending, hair-tearing exaggeration. He denies that Israel is "playing" the United States and asserts that Israel is only "playing" Obama. He asserts that Israel is pitting Congress against the American president to further its own self-interest. Fair enough. That´s the game. But how is that NOT "playing" the United States? And even if Mr. Podhoretz´ assertion is correct, that Israel is only "playing" Obama, isn´t that personal? And Mr. Podhoretz is somehow shocked and outraged that an unpopular and weakened American president shows the common human response of pushing back.

Strikes me the only hissy fit here is the one Mr. Podhoretz is throwing. And I usually like his pieces. Oh well, we´re all human.

Oh, and ALL foreign policy is ALWAYS personal. "Mister Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

#16 - Dream on. In the minds of many Jewish leftists, socialism trumps all. Israel = Zionism, one of those "isms" the Left intones hymns of hate about. Most of them have their minds pre-programmed to "it´s Bush´s fault".

So no, they´re not going to turn away from Obama, much less the Democrat Party.

Obama is extremely jealous of Netanyahu because Bibi is a real man, knows how to conduct a war and is a successful leader.

"obama" and "success" can not be used in the same sentence. When it comes to something as serious and complicated as national defense, he runs away on vacation and conducts cheerleading sessions by calling the NYT to feed them their daily dose of White House propaganda. Holding up their arms shipments is similar to a child hiding his sister´s doll because she gets all the attention.

Where are all the liberal Jews in Obama´s latest lashout at Israel? The reason we have WRSA (US war reserve stocks in allied countries) is so they can be used quickly in an emergency--the Obama administration clearly didn´t understand that. Now that Obama has basically stopped delivery of WRSA to Israel where are all the American liberal Jews? Don´t they care? Are they just so far to the left that Israel´s problems don´t matter?

While much said about allegiances in the comments is probably true, I suspect that the "hissy fit" description is exactly right. Israel fought and essentially won this battle without kissing BO´s ring and Kerry, the clown prince came off looking like, well, a clown. BO has a thin skin and if he has success in the Middle East it would have been a reprieve from his domestic problems. Instead he looked more incompetent and his poll numbers dropped even further.

So the boy king takes his petty revenge.

This is the behavior that scares me. This is BO unchecked and unbalanced. He just doesn´t care about what is right or what US obligations might be. He acts outside or on the extreme edge of the law.

I think this is what we can look forward to if/when Republicans take the Senate. The biggest snit fit ever seen. BO is a stupid, petty, nasty person and we will know that for sure soon.

What will we do about it?

AUSTIN - Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis, fresh off her first debate gubernatorial debate, expressed confidence Saturday that she will win the race on Nov. 4. "I can tell you with great optimism that I´m not going to lose this election," she told a mostly friendly crowd at the Texas Tribune Festival, a political symposium underway at the University of Texas campus. During an hour-long question-and-answer session, Davis also answered a question from Attorney General Greg Abbott which she had declined to answer during Friday´s debate in Edinburg: Did she regret voting for Barack Obama?

AUSTIN — Twenty years ago this November, Texas elected George P. Bush’s uncle as governor. That election cemented Republicans in power in the Lone Star State after a steady period of ascendance. Democrats haven’t won a statewide elective office since and their candidates for governor (state Sen. Wendy Davis) and lieutenant governor (state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte) are currently seen here in Texas as underdogs this fall. In the two decades since George W. Bush became governor, the Republican Party here has turned several shades redder. Texas might qualify now as the epicenter of the conservative movement across the

WASHINGTON — A man jumped over the fence of the White House on Friday and made it through the front door before officers managed to apprehend him, just minutes after President Barack Obama had departed, the Secret Service said. The intruder sprinted toward the White House after leaping over the fence and ignored commands from officers to stop, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said. He was ultimately apprehended just inside the North Portico doors, the grand, columned entrance that looks out over Pennsylvania Ave. Donovan said the man appeared to be unarmed to officers who spotted him jumping the fence,

It should come as no surprise when movies dovetail with the wider social conversation. But this week, the collision is occurring with particularly crystallizing force. To wit: The arrival of a Liam Neeson movie isn’t exactly news, although his new one, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” is notable on several counts. For one thing, it marks the return of Neeson to the kind of substantive, mature roles his fans have craved while he’s been making science-fiction fantasies and franchise installments. As New York detective Matt Scudder, Neeson settles easily into a role that calls for equal parts muscular brawn and

Interpreting the Islamic State’s jihadi logic

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

The United States has made the same mistake in evaluating fighters from the Islamic State that it did in Vietnam — underestimating the enemy’s will, according to James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Clapper’s comments came in a telephone interview Wednesday, in which he summarized the elements of a new National Intelligence Strategy released this week. Clapper also answered some broader questions about intelligence issues confronting the country. Asked whether the intelligence community had succeeded in its goal of providing “anticipatory intelligence” about the extremist movement in Syria and Iraq that has declared itself the Islamic State, Clapper said

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year. Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight. Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.

Weeks before the State Department assured Americans that things were operating “normally” at its consulate in the Kurdish capital of Erbil in August, concerned procurement officials were quietly saying the advance of militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, meant the government needed to shell out tens of millions of dollars to counter a “rapidly deteriorating” security situation. On a no-bid basis, the State Department nearly doubled the size of a task order to defense contractor Triple Canopy, which had been hired to train Iraqi security forces but was asked to now perform diplomatic security and

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places.

These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes.
