Barack Obama: the most anti-Israel president ever

With his remarks in Jakarta, Indonesia, President Obama made history once again. Sadly, it’s a most unenviable title. I believe he is the most anti-Israel president in U.S. history.

In going to Jakarta, Indonesia, to launch his latest attack, he literally went to the ends of the earth to give voice to his displeasure. He emphasized his opposition to the policies of the elected government of Israel.

He used his Jakarta platform to complain about Israel building apartments for her growing population. Where? In Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

To make matters even worse, Jakarta is a city no Israeli is allowed to enter! The symbolism of saying what he said in the country and city where he said it is simply atrocious.

He was in Indonesia less than 24 hours. If he had to make such a one-sided and unfair pronouncement, couldn’t he at least have waited until he got to South Korea? Touting Indonesia’s great tolerance is offensive. We love everyone here in Indonesia, except the Israelis, of course, and except Catholic school girls who get beheaded on their way to school.

What could he have been thinking in traveling to his boyhood home — in what is widely described as the largest Muslim country in the world — and sharply criticizing Israel? It’s as if he is determined to take an unfriendly stance and to reinforce it with his own biography: This place was a second home to me, and I am telling you, Israel, to knock it off! Those were not his actual words, but how else can we interpret his bizarre sense of time and place?

President Obama’s foreign policy puts much greater emphasis on the UN as a world body. He has changed previous policy by bowing to the UN’s horrendous Human Rights Council. This is a body that contains Russia, China, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia — those paragons of human rights. It is to this body that the Obama administration finds it necessary to “report.” The reports we have submitted essentially apologize to these brutal despots at the UN for not fully implementing more of the Obama legislative agenda at home.

The president has admitted he and his party took a “shellacking” in the midterm elections. So implementation of that agenda looks increasingly problematic. Shellacking it may be, but you cannot put a high-gloss veneer on what happened November 2nd. Voters streamed into the polling places to render a vote of “no confidence” in this administration.

Interestingly, if the United States had a constitutional system similar to the parliamentary social democracies that Mr. Obama and so many of his liberal allies clearly favor, they would all be out of office. None of the leaders he will encounter in his G-20 meeting in South Korea this week would be appearing in the group photo if their parties had been given such a shellacking by the voters in their countries.

President Obama can thank his stars for the fact that under the United States Constitution, he still has a full two years to try to implement what’s left of his program. He’ll have a hard time doing it with 60+ new members of the House of Representatives who won their seats touting their staunch opposition to Obama’s policies.

    Of course he hates Israel, that one of the reaosn he is here, to wipe them off the face of the earth. According to this he is not even an American citizen nd his nmae is not Barack. H eis a radical sunni Muslim an soemhow he mnaged to get elected President. He wouldnt’ salute the American flag yet people voted
    for him. This is quite a mess but they are all ignoring it,or keeping it quiet because there are too mny important people involved. .

    Does not matter that this unqualified community organizer hates Israel. The Jewish community will continue to donate money and lend voting support to this Chicago Cook County thug forever. What does that say about the mindset of the Jewish community? The Jews always seem to support their enemies. Just sayin’.

    Hi Ken -
    Bad bad article. Writing pro Zionist dribble requires no courage. You are no patriot.

    • clw

      Joe you need therapy. Truly. Your anti-zionist rants are pscyhopathic. Conservatives don’t want you anywhere near our side. You’re a cancer.

  • Marcsol

    Hi Ken -
    Great piece you wrote. It’s accurate and well written. You are a true patriot!

    Ken Blackwell you are just an idiot. It does not matter what the president does you will find fault with him the same way I find fault with you. There are many reasons to be mad at our president without making any up. You are a person who tries to be like folks who you believe to be beeter than yourself. You want to be accepted by the good ole boys and I would bet my life you would never see a black woman as part of your future. You care more about fitting in with folks you deem to be better than you own people in your misguided efforts to gain status and a false place amoungst those who can’t stand your black ass. No matter what you do or how hard you try or even the wife you marry you are still not going to be a member of their family. Your not even a step child you are a lost puppy wagging your tail at folks who will not even throw you a bone. You have never done anything compared to what our president has done for this country. You find your strength through lies and a false sense of self. Wake and look in the mirror and George Washington will not be staring back you will still be left with youself and nothing much more than that.

      And you will never find any fault with this president because you share the same color with him.

    • junkmaninohio

      What has this president done for this country? Willingly Ruined it.

      There are too many obvious issues to take up with your post, and it would be WAY too easy to beat you into a corner with them.

      Suffice to say that Ken Blackwell is CLEARLY more intelligent than you are, more coherent than you are, more concise than you are, more non-biased than you are, and yes, infinitely “beeter” than you are, on EVERY conceivable level of intellectual discourse imaginable.
