When Kanye West said “George Bush don’t like black people,” it set off a shock wave of epic proportions along racial lines to this day haven’t been mended. Well, I can honestly say after watching Barack Obama disrespect Israel like he did during his UN speech, I can easily say “Obama doesn’t like Israel!”
Just over a year ago, Obama suggested that Israel return to its 1967 borders as he was repping for Palestine but Israel balked at the proposal.
Since the president didn’t receive even one (speech interruption) applause while he spoke at the UN, I think it’s safe to say NOT MANY PEOPLE were thrilled with his remarks, certainly not many Americans, when he asked that we “give up some of our freedoms” for his idea of a “new world order.”
While speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama said Israelis and Palestinians would be better off if “Israel recognizes it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land.”
During his speech, Obama told the UN delegation what he believes would “surely” make the world a better a place. He compared alleged racial persecution faced in America to genocide occurring in Burma and Burundi:
And what is true in the Middle East applies to all of us. Surely, religious traditions can be honored and upheld while teaching young people science and math rather than intolerance.
Surely, we can sustain our unique traditions while giving women their full and rightful role in politics and economics of a nation.
Surely, we can rally our nations to solidarity while recognizing equal treatment for all communities, whether it’s a religious minority in Myanmar, or an ethnic minority in Burundi, or a racial minority right here in the United States.
Obama then turned his focus on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, stating that while Palestinians should “reject” calls for violence, Israel needs to stop occupying and settling land that allegedly belongs to Palestine:
And surely, Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land.
Before moving on to his next point, Obama added, “We all have to do better as leaders in tamping down, rather than encouraging, a notion of identity that leaves us to diminish others.”
Israel recognizes that Jews occupied these lands for thousands of years before the Palestinian nation was invented! They also know, unlike Obama, that the Palestinians can never be placated! They will never be satisfied; they will never have enough! Peace is NOT their goal – their motivation is the destruction of Israel and all Jews. Do not let history repeat itself – support Israel!
Obama needs to be reminded his words are merely his opinion. He does not speak for Israel or the majority of Americans that disagree with his opinion!
Do you think Obama is disloyal to Israel? Do you feel the Obama Presidency has strained relationships with Israel beyond repair? Share your feelings and opinions below in the comment section.
