"Zionists ...will lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House," Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson, October 2008.
Barack Hussein Obama today threw America's longest and most important ally in the Middle East, Israel, under the bus (ABC News).
"The dream of a Jewish and democratic state cannot be fulfilled with permanent occupation," the president said in a wide-ranging, Mideast speech at the State Department.The Simon Weisenthal Center noted this was a call for Israel to return to the "Auschwitz borders."
"The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine. The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states."
"We welcome the President's recognition of Israel's security needs and that Hamas cannot be a partner in the peace process, but a call to a return to 1967 borders as the basis for negotiations, even with 'land swaps' is a non-starter, when at least half of the Palestinian rulers are committed to Israel's destruction," said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean, and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.CNSNews reports that one rabbi is calling Obama's proposal "ethnic cleansing."
“It’s immoral in that basically the president of the United States is asking that 500,000 people who live, work, and raise families around Jerusalem – Jewish families – that they be uprooted, resettled, deported from their homes, have their families broken,” Rabbi Aryeh Spero, founder of Caucus for America, told CNSNews.com.Never mind that Obama told AIPAC in 2008 that he would not divide Jerusalem. Now he is telling Israel to turn over some of the Holiest sites in Judaism and Christianity to Hamas and Fatah. Never mind that Obama's constant ass-kissing to the Muslim world has not satisfied Hamas, who leads the Palestinian people and has as their stated charter the destruction of Israel.
“The president of the United States is asking for ethnic cleansing,” said Rabbi Spero. “It’s ironic that the president, who speaks in humanitarian tones regarding the Palestinians, doesn’t have any humanitarian concerns toward 500,000 Jewish people and families that will be uprooted and deported from their homes.”
Obama made the demand on Israel during a speech on the Middle East, delivered at the State Department on Thursday, as a way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But Spero believes Obama was not being honest.
“Every time Israel relinquishes land on the altar of peace, it gets not peace but rockets,” Spero said. “This has been played over and over by the Palestinian Authority, then with Yasser Arafat, with Hamas. He knows what will happen with the Israelis, and yet it doesn’t seem to bother him.”
“I’m just very disappointed that my president seems to be so indifferent to the plight of the Jewish people in Israel,” he said.
As Rabbi Spero noted, every time Israel has made a concession (Gaza most recently) it has been rewarded not with peace, but with more violence. He learned well from his racist "preacher" Jeremiah Wright, who hung out with anti-Semites like Louis Farrakhan.
Make no mistake, Barack Hussein Obama is rewarding Islamic terrorism with his demonization of Israel as "occupiers" and giving these terrorists the pre-1967 borders. This slap-in-the face to our most important ally should be rebuked by our Congress and American citizens.
