Ken Blackwell: Barack Obama: The Most Anti-Israel President!

By Huffington Post
November 12, 2010

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. Indonesians love everybody, 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 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 policies.

Here’s an idea he might suggest that could help build consensus and restore his frayed mandate: President Obama should announce that the U.S. Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem.

By doing that, he could demonstrate that he is not reflexively anti-Israel. Every other U.S. Embassy in the world is in the host nation’s capital city. When Germany united twenty years ago, the new government there designated Berlin as their capital. The U.S. Embassy in Bonn obediently packed up and moved to Berlin in 1999.

By moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, he could reassure Israelis — only 4% of whom think he is a friend of Israel. And he could show “the Muslim world” that he keeps trying to appease that the United States will not abandon its historic alliance with Israel. It’s a sad commentary that such a reassurance is increasingly necessary.

    What a sad pathetic piece of trash article. This slant is part of what keeps me away from HuffPo.

    Gentle readers:

    The allegation in the blog post above:

    “(Obama) used his Jakarta platform to complain about Israel building apartments for her growing population. Where? In Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.”

    The shall we say less-biased report of what went on:

    “When asked in about Israel’s plans for 1,000 housing units for a contested part of East Jerusalem, Mr. Obama said, ‘This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations.’”

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/10/world/middleeast/10jerusalem.html

    I leave it to you, gentle readers to decide whether the obvious anti-Obama spin in the blog squares with the reality of the exchange between Obama and a questioner.

    “Obama: ‘Indonesia is a part of me’ …” extract from Obama’s statement while in Jakarta.

    This to me confirms in my heart of hearts the belief that he’s a Muslim to the core and his involvement with Christianity is simply part of his CIA sponsored public persona created for Western public consumption. When it comes to long range projects with the creation of moles even of a political nature then the sky is not the limit as outrageous as my claim might be.

    In a number of articles I’ve written that I truly believe that the CIA has compromised the presidency of the U.S. and they have a host of these synthesized faux “uber men” in the wings, ready to be activiated when necessary. Bill Clinton and Hillary too have liasons with the CIA via H.W. Bush, Mr. CIA himself and kingmaker during the Iran/Contra debacle and their facilitation of allowing the agency to operate a base out Mena, Arkansas which is against their charter and a violation of United States Codes. He promised both Bill and Hillary that great things would be happening for them in the future as a reward for their superb service to the agency.

    So we have Ronald Reagan/H.W. Bush (Mr. CIA) > H.W. Bush/Dan Quayle > Bill Clinton (CIA operative)/Al Gore > G.W. Bush (Mr. CIA’s son)/Dick Cheney (Mr. ‘oil patch’/MIC) > Barack Obama (CIA?)/Joe Biden in the White House.

    We were warned by Ike concerning the hazards of an out of control unfettered MIC. Our intel agencies and their buddies in the MIC are for all practical purposes feeding as vampires off the collective tax blood of a nation. What better way to maintain their financial and societal hegemony than to compromise the office of the presidency too. Obama is simply a “holding” president between “rethug” party tenure which is also the flagship party of the shadowy, corporate oligarchs that own AmeriKa lock, stock and barrel. I’m providing a link to corroborate my claims. There’s others too, but I generally only provide one per post. Don’t lock up your minds because you see “Prison Planet” with Alex Jones involved. Actually thank goodness there are the Alex Jones, Jesse Ventura types snooping about or encouraging such activites. Yes Virginia, our governent lies to us all the time…! : |

    I heard someone say to me one time “This isn’t worth two squirts of duck sh**!” I would have to say this article is included in that assessment.
