2 cents: Fantastic summary and analysis that I want to share.
Why do Barack Obama and John Kerry despise Israel?
Last night, Israel Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer appeared last night on the Fox News’ Kelly File with guest host Sandra Smith. The subject was John Kerry’s “+30” pathetically horrendous speech to quote Nina Bookout’s post yesterday. Nina did a great roundup of the Kerry speech in its “patheticness”. Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu issued a forceful response and Ambassador Dermer batted cleanup.
The “Settler Agenda” in Israel? That would be Jews living Judea and Samaria, currently known as the West Bank (since 1946). Weren’t Jews in Judea and Samaria in the Bible?
David French in The Corner at National Review rightly asks which American values ask us to facilitate the deaths of the Jewish people?
As Ron Dermer noted to Sandra Smith last night, Israel is a sovereign nation. What gives Barack Obama, John Kerry of the thugs at the United Nations the right to dictate how the peoples of Israel, both Jews and Arabs, live? Why on their way out of power have Barack Obama and John Kerry decided to poke Israel with a stick over and over?
Ben Shapiro, also in the National Review, asks the question about Barack Obama and his hatred of Israel:
Barack Obama has done his best for nearly eight years to undermine the state of Israel. He’s signed a treaty that enshrines an Iranian path to a nuclear weapon while funding their global terrorist activities to the tune of tens of billions of dollars. He’s repeatedly undercut Israel’s image on the world stage, labeling Israel a mere outgrowth of the Holocaust and suggesting that Israeli intransigence stands as the chief obstacle to peace. He’s ushered Benjamin Netanyahu out the side door of the White House, attempted to undercut the prime minister’s speech before Congress, and then deployed an election team to Israel to try to defeat him in an election. Obama has tried to cut weapons shipments to Israel in the middle of a war against terrorists, forced Israel to apologize for stopping weapons shipments to Hamas terrorists, and funded the Palestinian terrorist unity government with American taxpayer dollars.
Shapiro asks the question, provides evidence, but no answers.
There is a very strong, outward current of anti-Semitism on the left. Barack Obama is a social justice lefty from the church of Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Barack Obama has shown his bigotry and racism often over the last eight years. I don’t really need to list examples, do I?
What explains John Kerry? He is not just carrying water for the Obama Administration. He has been an anti-Semite for years. To the left, being an open anti-Semite and hating Israel is a significant strength. Just check out this link: Kerry Stands Tall in War and Peace, on Israel and Palestine. Check this quote:
Kerry made unprecedented efforts to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Kerry knows, as every student of history knows, that in a negotiation for peace under difficult circumstances, all parties to the negotiation make concessions to other parties, and must receive concessions from other parties.
Every student of history knows, when Israel makes a concession, Palestine bows out of negotiations, AND what do you concede when the other party wants to wipe out your existence.
I am no psychoanalyst and I don’t play one on tv. Barack Obama and John Kerry, indeed the core of the leftist ideology, despise the very existence of Jews and Israel not as much as the “Palestinians” but despise them they do.
