The Obama administration’s intentions towards Israel is crystal clear and disturbing. According to this Haaretz article, the Obama administration is planning on publicly confronting the newly-minted Netanyahu government:
In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration is readying for a possible confrontation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by briefing Democratic congressmen on the peace process and the positions of the new government in Israel regarding a two-state solution.
The Obama administration is expecting a clash with Netanyahu over his refusal to support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
In recent weeks, American officials have briefed senior Democratic congressmen and prepared the ground for the possibility of disagreements with Israel over the peace process, according to information recently received. The administration’ blockquote Congress.
The Obama administration’s pro-Arab bent is painfully apparent and disgusting. It appears as though everyone that thinks it’s in the United States’ interests to afflict Israel while comforting Hamas (to the tune of $900,000,000), Hezbollah and the “moderate factions” of the Taliban has been hired by Obama’s State Department or been picked to be President Obama’s VP. Here’s what VP Biden said during a CNN interview:
United States Vice President Joe Biden told CNN on Tuesday he did not think that Israel’s new government would order a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. “I don’t believe that Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu would do that. I think he would be ill-advised to do that,” Biden told the U.S. network’s reporter Wolf Blitzer.
This question needs to be asked of this administration: Why are they so friendly to terrorists bust hostile towards allied democracies? Doesn’t the Obama administration believe in giving carrots to our allies? Doesn’t this administration believe in giving terrorists a healthy taste of the United States’ stick?
Thus far, I haven’t seen proof that this administration’s national security priorities are the right priorities. Thus far, I’ve seen abundant proof that their priorities are as wayward as Jimmy Carter’s priorities were.
There are signs that this is part of the Obama administration’s campaign against Israel and against their critics here stateside. This article is written in a serious tone but its content is laughable:
In Americaâ€™s struggle against the extremists and terrorists epitomized by Al Qaeda, the strategic imperatives are to divide the enemy and neutralize their base. Fortunately for the United States and its allies, the new American president understands how to do thatâ€”and is uniquely suited to accomplish the mission.
Joe Conason isn’t a journalist. He’s a cheap political hack:
From 1978 to 1990, he worked as a columnist and staff writer at The Village Voice.
In The Free Voice of Labor], a 1980 documentary movie about the Yiddish anarchist newspaper Freie Arbeiter Stimme (or Free voice of labor), a young Joe was interviewed. His grandfather Joseph Cohen served as the paper’s editor for a number of years and Conason may have been an intern for them.
From 1990 to 1992, Conason was “editor-at-large” for Details magazine. In 1992, he became a columnist for the New York Observer, a position he still holds.
He served as investigative editor for The American Prospect.
In 1992 Conason wrote an article for Spy magazine naming Jennifer Fitzgerald and Jane Morgan as women who allegedly were having affairs with George H. W. Bush, using Linda Tripp as a source.
Conason was a regular guest and a guest host on The Al Franken Show, where he had the distinction of being the only guest with two theme songs. He made an appearances every Friday as a commentator, as well as co-judging with Al their weekly quiz show Wait, wait, don’t lie to me.
Does that sound like the history of someone who’s qualified to write about national security issues? Let’s get serious.
It wouldn’t be surprising to find out that Mr. Conason is a willing participant in The Call:
The vast new left-wing conspiracy sets its tone every morning at 8:45 a.m., when officials from more than 20 labor, environmental and other Democratic-leaning groups dial into a private conference call hosted by two left-leaning Washington organizations.
The â€œ8:45 A.M. call,â€ as itâ€™s referred to by members, began three weeks ago, and it marks a new level in coordination by the White Houseâ€™s allies at a time when the conservative opposition is struggling for a toe-hold and major agenda items like health care reform appear closer than ever to passage.
The call has helped attempts to link the Republican Party to radio host Rush Limbaugh, and has served as the launching ground for attacks on critics of Obamaâ€™s policy proposals. It springs from a recognition of what was lacking in the Clinton years, said Jennifer Palmieri, the senior vice president for communications at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, one of the groups hosting the call.
â€œ[CAP President John] Podestaâ€™s and my experience was in the White House during the Clinton years, and we didnâ€™t have a coordinated echo chamber on the outside backing us up,â€ she said. â€œThereâ€™s a real interest on the progressive side for groups to want to coordinate with each other and leverage each otherâ€™s work in a way I havenâ€™t ever seen before.â€
It’s my opinion that this coalition of crazies is running interference while the Obama administration attempts to threaten the Israeli government into not defending itself against Iran’s threats of annihilation. It’s also my opinion that the Obama administration’s foreign policy is governed more by a desire to be liked than by its desire to keep the United States and her democratic allies safe.
Until I see a change of direction by this administration, I’ll operate from the assumption that they’ll have as disastrous of a national security record as Jimmy Carter’s.
