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."

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?

In battle to stop encroaching Chinese

BEIJING — Swelling crowds of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong on Monday plunged Asia’s normally staid financial hub into a tense standoff with Beijing that strikes directly at China’s expanding political grip in the former British colony. The rapidly escalating protests are aimed at forcing Beijing’s Communist leaders to abandon newly declared powers to weed out any candidates in upcoming Hong Kong elections. Yet many on the streets proclaimed they are fighting for something even bigger: preserving a vision of Hong Kong promised 17 years ago when it reverted to Chinese rule. At the time, Chinese leaders promised a state

U.S. intel disputes Obama

U.S. policy leaders, including President Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than a year by the U.S. intelligence community that the Islamic State terror group was gaining significant strength in Syria and was on the verge of seizing territory deep inside Iraq, where the military was struggling to respond. The private assessments, which were confirmed to The Washington Times on Monday, conflict with Mr. Obama’s claim on national television over the weekend that America’s spies had underestimated the rise and capabilities of the Islamic State and had overestimated the Iraqi military’s ability and will to fight the group. Despite heavy

The Supreme Court’s conservatives cleared the way Monday for Ohio to restrict early voting in the state, on the eve of the day it was to start. The court granted the state’s request to stay decisions of lower courts that threw out the state’s new plan, passed by the Republican-led legislature. But the court’s four liberal justices said they would have stayed out of the case and left those decisions in place. Ohio argued that the new plan--reducing from 35 to 28 the number of days voters could cast an early ballot--could not be seen as violating the rights of

More than seven in 10 Americans say the United States will end up using its own combat troops against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria, despite President Barack Obama’s assertion that U.S. combat troops won’t be on the ground there. This finding comes from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll, which also shows that Americans are divided over the merits of using U.S. combat troops – 45 percent are in favor of using them if military commanders think they’re the best way to defeat the ISIS army, while 37 percent are opposed. President Obama has repeatedly stressed that America

The gunman parked his black Honda directly south of the White House, in the dark of a November night, in a closed lane of Constitution Avenue. He pointed his semiautomatic rifle out of the passenger window, aimed directly at the home of the president of the United States, and pulled the trigger. A bullet smashed a window on the second floor, just steps from the first family’s formal living room. Another lodged in a window frame, and more pinged off the roof, sending bits of wood and concrete to the ground. At least seven bullets struck the upstairs residence of

The Obama administration appears to be losing ground in its efforts to cut U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases, according to new government figures that show pollution levels rising again after several years of gradual decline. Data released Friday by the Energy Department show American factories and power plants putting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere during the first six months of 2014 compared with the same period in each of the past two years. The figures confirm a reversal first seen in 2013, when the trend of steadily falling emissions abruptly halted. The higher emissions are primarily a reflection of

Late, hesitant and reluctant as he is, President Obama has begun effecting a workable strategy against the Islamic State. True, he’s been driven there by public opinion. Does anyone imagine that without the broadcast beheadings we’d be doing anything more than pinprick strikes within Iraq? If Obama can remain steady through future fluctuations in public opinion, his strategy might succeed. But success will not be what he’s articulating publicly. The strategy will not destroy the Islamic State. It’s more containment-plus: Expel the Islamic State from Iraq, contain it in Syria. Because you can’t win from the air. In Iraq, we

As the United States mobilized against new Islamist enemies this month, the voice of an aging adversary echoed in the distance. Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of al-Qaeda’s founders and its leader for the past three years, released a video announcing the formation of a new affiliate in India and lamenting the turmoil being caused by the rival Islamic State in Syria. “Oh mujahideen, unite and reject differences and discord,” he said in a pleading tone that seemed to underscore the declining relevance of al-Qaeda’s core, the Pakistan-based group that orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Leading astrologers say that Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is destined for a future working on social justice and will enjoy a strong relationship with her proud grandparents, Hillary and Bill. After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter. “She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that
