As a shallow thinker with some obvious emotional hang ups from his liberal family plus a lefty education with its radical community contacts, Obama’s antipathy toward Israel is easy to understand. Blacks have forgotten the vital role the Jewish community played in advancing 1960’s civil rights, and black leaders have pushed an anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian, Muslim-friendly agenda that has also influenced Obama. The Jeremiah Wright-led church he attended for 20 years promoted the Nation of Islam with Louis Farrakhan and also furthered the pro-Palestinian cause, as the most casual look at the church’s newsletter/mag proves.
Today’s left is openly hostile to Israel and Jews while openly supportive of ‘Palestine’ in any guise, including the terror group Hamas. It’s a shameful episode in our nation’s history, and Obama is nothing if not a typical lefty fed a typical lefty college diet.One democracy in the Middle East and the left hates it. One successful capitalist country in the Middle East and the left hates it. One country which permits worship of all religions, equal rights for women and gay rights, and the left hates it. To hate it, the left embraces a culture of violence, terror, discrimination, and corruption that holds back its community to a time several centuries back in time.
This is the worst news of the entire Obama administration and should garner round-the-clock headlines, not to mention possible impeachment hearings. Some of us have said for more than 6 years: an Obama government is going to get us killed.
Rather than a reset with Israel as the Post advises, Obama has something else in mind. While it may be going too far to say that the administration thinks of itself as entering into an alliance with the Iranians, the bottom line here is that the new Middle East that it envisions after an Iran deal is one in which traditional U.S. allies will be marginalized and endangered while Tehran and its terrorist allies will be immeasurably strengthened. The administration can only achieve that dubious goal by working assiduously against Israel and the bipartisan coalition that backs the alliance with the Jewish state in Congress.
This leaked audio provides credence to the charges of an US-Iran alliance. You’ll recall Ben Rhodes as the advisor who changed the wording of the CIA report on the Benghazi massacre to reflect a video-protest agenda; Ben’s brother, btw, is head of CBS news. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/10/31/ben-rhodes-audio-an-iran-nuclear-deal-will-be-the-obamacare-of-our-second-term/

Nice of Americans – and Europeans – to send their tax $$ to help Hamas build new terror tunnels and buy more weapons. When most entities lose a military war, there’s a price to pay but not the Palestinians. The Western world hands over new money without a single demand for concessions. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4776/hamas-donors How the Donors Saved Hamas
