This week President Obama is pressuring Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to embrace the American Framework for Mideast Peace. Even as Obama and Secretary of State Kerry pressure Mr. Netanyahu to accept the agreement, one of the agreement’s core tenets, recognition of Israel as a state by the Palestinians will never happen according to Palestinian leader Abbas. So Obama wants Israel to accept its framework and to recognize a Palestinian state without any reciprocal steps by the Palestinians. Essentially, this is the same game Obama has played since he got in office. It is a game of trying to paint Israel as the bad guy while bolstering the Israel’s enemies.
In my heart of hearts I believe Obama and many of his supporters want the destruction of the Jewish state. The attempt of the administration to isolate Israel in the UN and in international affairs can be clearly seen in the failure of the administration to stop 22 UN resolutions condemning Israel. As a security council member the US had that ability. The American media, often taking its lead from the Obama administration ignores the rockets fired into Israel while they point out how terrible it is when Israel defends itself.
Perhaps the greatest indictment of the Obama Administration’s view of Israel is its failure to reign in Iran’s nuclear program. A country and regime that has specifically vowed to wipe Israel off the map is allowed to continue to develop nuclear weapons. Iran has even said publicly that it will ignore the agreement its made. Nevertheless, the President lifted the sanctions on Iran and is proceeding as if he did anything other than try and sign Israel’s death certificate.
So, what can be done now? I would start by calling your Congressman and Senator and asking that sanctions be placed back on Iran. These need to be complete, total and now. If you voted for Obama you as many others were fooled, but unless you put pressure on our senators and congress people, your vote has contributed to the potential destruction of Israel. The administration and the democratic powers have been building up a huge anti-Israeli lobby in this country. That trend has to be stopped.
If Israel does not exist? Who will represent democracy in the middle east? How much additional terrorism do you think we will experience here? How much increased antisemitism do you think we will experience. Making sure NEVER AGAIN happens is the responsibility of every person with a Jewish Heritage, and the responsibility of of all people with a conscience. With the rise of anti-antisemitism in Europe, the anti-Israeli movement in the US and the policies of the Obama Administration, Israel is in more danger than since its founding. Will American Jews stand up? Will Christians and those with conscience stand up?
