      Pamela Geller is the founder, editor, and publisher of the widely popular and award-winning website AtlasShrugs.com, which has broken numerous important political stories. She is the President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and the author of the The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.

Speaking in Turkey on Tuesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron slammed Israel and called Gaza a “prison camp.” (Apparently Gaza is the first prison camp with luxury shopping malls.) The British Foreign Office has been taking the blame for this betrayal of Israel, but they’re claiming they were as surprised as anyone. Now, a high-placed and knowledgeable source has informed me that it was Obama’s people who put the slamming of Israel into Cameron’s speech.

Cameron also said that “the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was completely unacceptable.” He didn’t mention the ties of the Turkish-backed IHH “activists” on the flotilla to global jihad terror groups. He didn’t mention that the “activists” on the Turkish flotilla, the Mavi Marmara, were chanting, “Khaibar, Khaibar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return” – a chant that refers to Muhammad’s massacre of the Jews at the Arabian oasis of Khaibar.

And now we learn that it was the Obama camp that put Cameron up to this. It comes as no surprise. Obama himself termed Israel’s defensive action against the jihad flotilla “tragic.”

Just as Blair was Bush’s “puppy,” Cameron is Obama’s lapdog.

Obama’s use of Cameron as his sock puppet points once again to Obama’s obsession with destroying the Jewish state. Obama is doing nothing less than warring against Israel. When Sean Hannity asked me on his show Tuesday night if I thought Obama was an anti-semite, I said yes. He is. It sounds harsh. But the evidence is clear and extensive: it’s all meticulously researched and set out in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America, which is just out this week.

In the book I profile Obama’s many, many anti-Israel playmates: not just Jeremiah Wright, but also Rashid Khalidi (who is also tied to the jihad flotillas and just named a new one after Obama’s book The Audacity of Hope) and William Ayers: in the book also I expose the blatant Judeophobia of the terrorist couple Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn in their book Prairie Fire.

It is increasingly clear that the Islamic anti-Semitism taught in the Koranic classes of Obama’s youth in Indonesia and the subsequent adult years he spent with the likes of demagogues and Jew-haters like Wright, Ayers, and Louis Farrakhan have made him the man he is.

Now that Obama is in the White House, he is taking this Jew-hatred to a whole new level, bringing it to the international stage. In the book I give the details of a little-noticed but pivotal Obama speech that former UN Ambassador John Bolton called “the most radical anti-Israel speech I can recall any president making.”

Obama’s advisers and appointments as president are consistent with this: Robert Malley, Samantha Power, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Susan Rice, Rosa Brooks, Chuck Hagel… One anti-Semitic appointment may be an accident, but five and counting is a trend – and Obama has surrounded himself with Jew-haters.
