Obama's continuing betrayal of Israel takes a worse turn


 Since getting elected 5 1/2 years ago, Obama has been on a campaign undermining Israel, while being rude and at times seemingly dictatorial toward Israel's Prime Minister.  Without a lengthy oratory of examples,  since getting elected  Obama has repeatedly taken numerous diplomatic positions and taken actions that could only be rationalized as intended to hurt Israel.  At the same time, he has displayed immense support, condolences, and sympathies to the PA, Hamas, Iran, and the Muslim Brotherhood.  VP Cheney's recent "kid-glove" evaluation of Obama's performance in general  was most accurate.  Nothing is more to blame for the chaotic dangers the world faces from the chaos in the Middle East than Obama's lack of leadership, and his inept or possibly even sinister decisions.  Unfortunately, his unconscionable and unprecedented lack of respect for Israel's Prime Minister, and lack of public support for Israel, arguably America's best ally and certainly our best ally in the Middle East, deserves a much more scathing and hardline critique from al

US will not defend Israel at UN human rights forum

Israel says it asked US and other allies, as it does every year, not to take the floor at biased session
The United States did not take the floor at the main UN human rights forum in Geneva on Monday during the annual debate on alleged Israeli violations committed in the Palestinian territories.
The move at the 47-member state forum follows signals that the Obama administration is undertaking a "reassessment" of relations with Israel.

Main story from World Jewish DigestNew York Post columnist Michael Goodwin has some advice for Israelis: Beware of Barack Obama.
First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.
He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our allies, appeases tyrants, coddles adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.
Now he’s coming for Israel.
Barack Obama not only wants to transform America, Goodwin writes, he wants to transform the world. And that's why he's been so focused on changing the status quo in Israel, which he sees as an impediment to his grand vision for the Middle East with Iran at its center as an ally.
Apologists and wishful thinkers, including some Jews, insist Obama realizes that the special relationship between Israel and the United States must prevail and that allowing too much daylight between friends will encourage enemies. Those people are slow learners, or, more dangerously, deny-ists. If Obama’s six years in office teach us anything, it is that he is impervious to appeals to good sense. Quite the contrary. Even respectful suggestions from supporters that he behave in the traditions of American presidents fill him with angry determination to do it his way.
As we have seen from this recent flare up in relations over the willful misinterpretation of a statement on Palestinian statehood, Obama feels unshackled in his last two years in office to go after Israel with venom.
The only way to stop him is to always stand up for what's right and speak truth to power
