Jeremiah Wright ought to be proud

His once pew sitter and current President has dissed a jew leader... big-time:

For a head of state to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of.

Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip seen in Jerusalem tonight as a disastrous humiliation.

After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on Jewish settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisors and "let me know if there is anything new", a US congressman who spoke to the Prime Minister said today.

"It was awful," the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting "a hazing in stages", poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House phone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received "the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea".

Left to talk among themselves, Mr Netanyahu and his aides retreated to the Roosevelt Room. He later spent a further half-hour with Mr Obama and extended his stay for a day of emergency talks aimed at restarting peace negotiations, but left last night with no official statement from either side. He returns to Israel dangerously isolated after what Israeli media have called a White House ambush for which he is largely to blame.

Sources said that Mr Netanyahu failed to impress Mr Obama with a flow chart purporting to show that he was not be responsible for the timing of announcements of new settlement projects in east Jerusalem. Mr Obama was said to be livid when such an announcement derailed Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Israel this month, and his anger towards Israel does not appear to have cooled.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, cast doubt on minor details in Israeli accounts of the meeting but did not deny claims that it amounted to a dressing down for the Prime Minister, whose refusal to freeze settlements is seen in Washington as the main barrier to resuming peace talks.

The Likud leader now has to try to square the demands of the Obama Administration with his nationalist, ultra-Orthodox coalition partners, who want him to stand up to Washington, even though Israel desperately needs US backing in confronting the looming threat of a nuclear Iran.

"The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated and altogether weaker than when he came," the Israeli daily Ha'aretz said.

He bows to enemies and disses friends.  He strengthens and emboldens our enemies while chastising and weakening our allies.

He's your hope and change President.

Upset Old Guy:

Prior to the election I said Obama was wrong on national defense and wrong on Israel. While he has not YET screwed the pooch on national defenses, there is no question that he is wrong on Israel.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."

Face it:


Obama hates the US. Why do I say this?

1) He was raised and mentored by communists.
2) He sat at the feet of a racist, anti-Semite, anti-American pastor for 20 years.
3) He has said that the constitution has "deep flaws"
4) His adult life has been spent under the tutelage of people like Mike Klonski and Bill Ayers, both anti-American communists.
5) He has gone out of his way to offend the following significant US allies (most more than once): Britain, France, Germany, Israel, Poland, Italy, Czech Republic.
6) He has gone out of his way to coddle dictators from Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Sudan, Iran, China, Russia(I'd still call Putin a dictator), Cuba, Syria, Saudi Arabia and others.
7) He has advocated the silencing of dissent through physical violence.
8) He has called out the Supreme Court for doing its job, mocked them and suggested that it be circumvented in anti-constitutional ways.
9) His administration has supported using illegal means to pass legislation and is not at all bothered by using unconstitutional means to enact his programs.

All the Middle East needs is a little encouragement from the US to strike out hard at the Israel nation. Sad, that we live in a time when one president demanded the homeland for Israel and this one tries to destroy it. He is a Jew Hater, no doubt. Reverend Wright's favorite boogie man after white people. You lefties must be so proud at this point. ww

jim m:

Bibi knows that he and Israel are screwed. Obama will do nothing to prevent Iran from getting the bomb.

If Israel acts to destroy Iran's bomb making capability as they did with Iraq, Obama will do everything he can to destroy their nation.

On the other hand if Iran were to detonate a nuclear weapon in Israel, Obama would only have mild platitudes and he would talk of the necessity to face the reality of an islamic nuclear power. Obama will do everything within his power to prevent Israel from defending themselves.

Tsar Nicholas II:

What's even scarier is that Obama hasn't really had that much time to project his hatred for Israel and his radicalism on foreign policy issues, what with him being bogged down lately in trying to implement socialism at home.

Just imagine how batshit crazy he'll get on global geopolitical issues if he finds himself floating through the dog days of a 2nd term....

GarandFan:

So much for 'smart diplomacy'. Let's face it, Mr. Cool threw a hissy fit. I can imagine that the Israeli response is going to be "Fuck you!"

This move might get Barry some street cred with the Palestinians, but nothing else. IIRC, to get a peace agreement, you need two parties at the table.

Barry thinks that he can suck up to all the dictators that he so admires. What he doesn't realize is that no one respects a suck up.

He will alienate all our allies and gain us nothing. Whoever replaces him will find the US alone and vulnerable.

jim m:

The problem is that Barry believes all the hype about how smart he is and how he is a new messiah for the whole world.

Barry will never see rejection of others as having anything to do with himself, but he will always see it as resulting from a character flaw in the other person. AS such he sees any opposition as either ignorant or evil. He sees it as reason to use whatever means necessary to win regardless of what the cost. He is right, everyone who opposes him is wrong, everyone else is expendable to serve his purposes.

I expect we'll soon a couple of new businesses in Israel. They will be building the military hardware the Won will stop selling them ...

Then they'll begin competing with the US for foreign contracts ...

I assume the first business will be building bunker buster bombs. They can start with the original design we started with, take a cannon barrel, fill it with HE and add fins. Punches thru hardened bunkers like an ice pick. We went from zero to deploying weapons in less than 2 months. I'd imagine people being threatened with annihilation could do it faster, probably already have.

TFTFY No charge.

I can't believe he was so crass to a visiting head of state that represents such a large voting block of his constituents. I suspect he just tossed them under the bus.

"He bows to enemies and disses friends. He strengthens and emboldens our enemies while chastising and weakening our allies."

Thing is there is no evidence that America's friends and America's enemies are the same as Obama's friends and Obama's enemies. In fact quite the opposite seems to be the case.

Patrick:

Hmmmm... everyone seems a little one-sided here. That's ok though.

As for Israel, it's pretty much a given that if you're going to put settlements in when EVERYONE in the world knows that it's going to piss off the side you're "supposed to be negotiating with", it's a stupid idea.

Israel brought this upon themselves by saying "If you're Jewish, come live in Israel.", when they 1) didn't have enough room for everyone and 2) had no legal right to the lands around them.

Israel also brought this upon themselves by saying "YOU have to move, because we NEED this land." That would be the same as someone in Rhode Island telling people in Connecticut that they have to move out of their homes. It wouldn't go over here, and we shouldn't allow it to go over anywhere else.

Yes part of the problem is on the Muslim side of the coin too. But, I think that if Israel had worked with the people in the West Bank and Jordan--instead of invading it and putting them in camps, this whole situation would have turned out differently.

The Peace Process is a joke until EVERYONE can agree that they should be allowed to live side-by-side without prejudice and hate (much like it's supposed to be in the US). But, because of how Israel started this whole mess, that will never happen.

As for Obama, I'd be pissed too. Without notice, they announce the starting of settlements in disputed land AND they do it while the Vice President is there. You say that Obama dissed them, I would call their actions dissing the entire Peace Process (and since we're the negotiators in it, they dissed us as well). Then to basically come here and say "We're not going to change our minds on this." pretty much says "Fuck your Peace Process." So yeah, I'd probably do the same thing that Obama did. Why? Because you earned it.

As for Iran, Israel had better make sure they have all of their ducks in a row before attacking Iran. Because they will undoubtedly piss off EVERY Muslim nation around them, if they don't. And that is a war that we need to stay out of (so yes, I'm in agreement that given the choice of backing one country and pissing off 20 or letting the one country who acted unilaterally deal with it on their own-- I'm choosing to not start a war with 20 countries).

That being said, Iran should NOT be allowed to make a nuke. But, the PROPER way to stop this is to convince the 20 Muslim nations that Iran's goal is bad for all of them (effects of the nuke being used on Israel to EVERYONE in the Middle East, war afterwords, world condemnation of all Muslim countries who support Iran, etc), and get them on your side BEFORE you attack. We (the US) are in a better position of doing that, than Israel is.

But, most of you are overlooking these facts, and thinking that Israel is the victim here. So, if Israel is the victim, what are the people who were thrown out of their homes and put into camps? Not Collateral Damage, I hope....

In the end, Israel, Palestine, the rest of the Muslim countries, and especially Iran, need to allow the UN to decide how this should play out. Because that is the purpose of the UN. They are supposed to be the neutral party which polices the world. If they say Israel cannot build settlements and that they have to give back the land, well I guess some Jews will have to return to their real homes. If they say that Iran should be stopped at all costs from creating nuclear weapons, then the Muslim countries shouldn't bitch when Iran is attacked (regardless of by whom). And if they say that Israel has a right to the lands that they are claiming, then the Muslims need to take it. (Although on this front, IN THIS DAY AND AGE, I would hope that both Muslims and Jews can live together.. I mean come on, they do it in the US, Great Britain, Germany, France, and a few other countries in the world.)

So, let the flaming begin. Call me a Muslim-lover and whatever you want. For the record though, I was born and raised a Catholic, but consider myself an Agnostic. I firmly believe in reading and researching the beliefs of others BEFORE I pass judgment upon their beliefs--not passing judgment because their beliefs don't mesh perfectly with mine. As for Iraq, it was needed (although we stated the wrong reasons for doing it). I think had we stated the RIGHT reasons at the beginning, we'd be out of there by now. (but that's another argument for another post)

Have a great day:)
Patrick.
