Lest we forget, it was almost a year ago to the day that Mexican President Felipe Calderon stood on the floor of the U.S. Congress and trashed our laws regarding his people invading our country while our elected Democrat representatives stood and applauded him. So while I understand the ire of some who revere the Office of the President and are offended at Netanyahu's schooling of our top man, I was more offended at Calderon's attack on our country.
On Thursday, President Barack Hussein Obama went -- once again -- to the Middle East and delivered a speech aimed at appeasing the Muslim world, while he has yet to visit our long-time friend and ally, Israel, while in office. He visited as then-candidate Obama in 2008, but only to garner more support among the Jews here at home. (After over two years in office, domestic Jews seem not to have noticed that their man is no friend of Israel).
On this latest visit to the heart of Arab country, Obama grabbed the tiny country of Israel by the collar and belt, tossed it under the bus, and stepped on the gas. Claiming to be the present steward of Jimmy Carter's dream of Middle East peace, Obama reiterated the absurd notion that Israel could achieve that peace by giving up the land it now owns.
Despite the fact that Israel in the past has given back the entire Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and, briefly, the Golan Heights, and has been repeatedly attacked for its efforts, Obama now seems to believe that Israel's giving back all captured lands would finally bring harmony to the region. What Obama's demand of Israel would accomplish, however, would be to reduce the width of Israel at its center to eight miles, down from its current forty-five.
|What Obama Wants?|
Since then, and to this day, efforts have been made to get Israel to give up land to secure peace. Yet each time Israel gives, it gets...missiles from Hamas, missiles from Hezbollah, and scorn from the UN when they retaliate. They get riots from the ungrateful Palestinians who enjoy the benevolence of the only host that will have them. And now they get this blindside attack from the president of their once closest friend.
How the brilliant mind that is our President Barack Hussein Obama could be so ignorant of this history eludes even the dullest of minds. As a result, the more astute must wonder if Obama is actually as ignorant as he seems, or whether more sinister than comfort would allow. Neither prospect is acceptable when applied to the leader of the Free World.
So while I am a bit saddened that the president of my great country was the recipient of a scolding here in our house by a foreigner, I am only outraged at the reason it came to be. Eventually, sanity must prevail. Sphere: Related Content
