Yesterday, Reid Smith posed the question, “So what can we do for Israel?” Based on the “seven existential threats” criteria set out by Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Smith concludes “there’s not a whole lot America can do for Israel that it’s not already doing.”
I don’t entirely agree. One of the existential threats identified by Oren is delegitimization. Oren writes, “Since the mid-1970s, Israel’s enemies have waged an increasingly successful campaign of delegitimizing Israel in world forums, intellectual and academic circles, and the press.”
Well, I would argue that the Obama Administration has joined the delegitimization campaign against Israel. Whether it’s Obama’s open disdain of Benjamin Netanyahu, his comments about the 1967 borders and that the thought of Israel building homes in Jerusalem was more offensive to him than Iran killing its own people in an “election” in which Obama said we ought not to be seen as “meddling.” The recent comments by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Ambassador Howard Gutman are also a part of the Obama Administration efforts to delegitimize Israel.
The Obama Administration’s unbridled hostility towards to our only true friend in the Middle East is an act of moral cowardice. It’s bad enough that Obama wants to emulate European social policy. Well, when you have a European social policy then a European foreign policy is sure to follow. So what can America do for Israel? Vote Obama out of office and replace him with anyone except Ron Paul.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
