I Love Lucidity

Benjamin Netanyahu
Something happened in America on Friday, May 20th, something historic. It is something that in saner times would have made the average American angry; the head of a foreign state came to our shores and slapped our President silly, albeit figuratively, in the house of the people. Equally noteworthy, however, is that saner times would have made such an event entirely unnecessary. Today's event was needed desperately.

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?
Obama was, of course, referring to the pre-1967 borders of Israel, before the famous "6 Day War" in which the state of Israel, virtually alone, took out its antagonists surrounding them with threats of annihilation, in just six days. So decisive was the Israeli military superiority in the region that the United Nations was forced to negotiate a cease fire between Israel and its Arab enemies before the Soviet Union entered the battle. That deal stipulated that Israel would stop its advancing forces and settle on the land already conquered, to which the Jewish State promptly agreed.

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.

Ironic Surrealism stated it as "the bitch slap heard around the world!

Bib did good. He showed the difference between a leader and an idiot. And one could not escape seeing the sheer disdain and hate for not only Bibi, but the Jewish people in general that emanated from the so called leader of the free world. Yet,The majority of Jews in America according to the talking heads and pools will still vote for this clown, something as to which I scratch my head about every day. Can it really be true? Is the Jewish American population completely brain dead? Are they so completely screwed up in their heads that they believe for one moment that the atrocities we see aimed day after day at Israel will not be aimed at them once Israel is destroyed? Do they think for one moment a President that openly embraces a radical element bent on the elimination of the Jewish people will even try to stop the insurrection that is already making itself evident around the country? This same slow creeping cancer that is the Anti-Jewish sentiment is exactly the same as Nazi Germany. The similarities are there for all to see. Of course, I and others will be vilified for even having the audacity to compare our President to Hitler, yet he is allowing this to happen. Between his perceived hate for the Jews (again, this is how I see it!) and his Chaimberlain like stance of “I believe they’ll negotiate in good faith” belief in the radical Muslims who are now apparently running things (this clown really does believe in his heart radicals can be reasoned with. I’ve never figured this out, yet year after year morons think one can deal with hateful radicals. Can’t be done!) Israel, All Jews and if someone will finally get their heads out of their asses and realize, Western civilization as we know it are in deep danger!

It is stunning, Joe...but understandable when "respected journalists" like Helen Thomas utter idiotic comments like "Jews out of Palestine". Most people here that and simply nod like bobbleheads, not even realizing that "palestine" is as real as Mount Olympus or the Land of Oz.
