Today was a very sad day for our nation Americans, – and for the whole world. Today our pResident tossed another country – sixty-year ally Israel under the bus to join Georgia, the Czech Republic and Poland.
Speaking before the UN General Assembly he began with what sounded like your basic campaign speech by someone running for World Emperor. At first glance all the words and phrases were to be expected of cocky narcissist, as he recounted his accomplishments in reversing the Bush years, correcting the direction in Iraq, in the war on Terror, in ordering the shutdown of Guantanamo, and halting the torture of prisoners. It’s clear, his teleprompter is still stuck in 2008 campaign mode.
He did tell the delegates that they can’t expect the US to do it all alone and he asked for world involvement in security and climate change issues, nuclear safety, and economic issues.
Then he dropped his little bombshell: “We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel, and we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. (Applause.)
“The time has come — the time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem. And the goal is clear: Two states living side by side in peace and security — a Jewish state of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.” (Applause.)
In diplomatic circles and in public diplomatic settings words and phrases have special meaning to different listeners. The uninformed might think this was a very even-handed policy our pResident has put forward. But by calling the Israeli presence on the West Bank “the occupation which began in 1967” he just undercut Israel’s right to a defensible country, and he totally legitimized every Arab/Palestinian claim to return to their pre 1967 – even their pre 1949 homes. Thus he has made peace utterly impossible.
And by making this particularly cutting statement is so public a place, in front of all of Israel’s sworn enemies, he has handed the forces of Arab nationalism and Islamic terrorism a humongous and earth-shaking victory. He has emboldened every member of Hamas and Hezbollah, – every member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, – every “Palestinian” with an AK, an RPG, a rocket, or a suicide vest. Blood – a lot of blood will flow.
Every American Jew who blindly believed and supported Obama last year should be praying and weeping, and peeling off their Obama bumper stickers. He conned them when he said he would always support Israel. He was lying. He hates Israel as much as Hitler hated the Jews of Europe. He seethes with hatred.
Sixty years of mutual trust, close sharing of intelligence [for the sake of this blog we’ll sort of overlook the USS Liberty] defending against common enemies throughout the Cold War, two wars against Saddam, – all swept aside with a single speech, – a speech calculated to cut deep into the heart. In his book he wrote that he would side with the Muslims. He truly meant it.
Other allies, present and potential, – will have to know that our Narcissist-in-Chief will sweep them under the bus JUST as quickly as he did Jeremiah Wright, Bill Richardson, GrandMa Dunham, or the Czech Republic, – or today Israel. With our untrustworthy MEssiah, – we are now alone.
Americans, Obama isn’t just content to destroy our economy and our military. This bitterly angry creature intends to set the whole world afire! We can only wonder at the things his mother taught him.

PS: Watch him in Pittsburgh. I think he’ll hint broadly for a standard world currency. [His picture on it?]
