Americans need to be alarmed by what Obama’s actions on behalf of Hamas reveal

Excellent piece by Caroline Glick. She hits the nail on the head and it is a very ugly head.

Excerpt of this must-read piece below


Until Obama made the call, there was lingering doubt among some Israelis regarding his intentions. Some thought that US Secretary of State John Kerry might have been acting of his own accord last Friday night when he tried to force Israel to accept Hamas’s cease-fire terms.

But then Obama made his phone call. And all doubts were dispelled.

Kerry is just a loyal steward of Obama’s foreign policy.

Obama is siding with Hamas, and its Muslim Brotherhood patrons in Qatar and Turkey, against Israel, and its Sunni Arab supporters – Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

The fact that the US’s current preference for genocidal, Jew-hating jihadists over the only liberal, pro-American, stable US ally in the Middle East is a White House position, rather than that of a rogue Secretary of State was actually exposed even before Obama’s phone call.

Sunday CNN’s Candy Crowley interviewed Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. She asked him what the administration thinks Israel can do to prevent civilians from being killed in Gaza beyond what it is already doing. Rhodes replied, “I think you can always do more.”

In other words, Rhodes said that no matter what precautions Israel takes to try to minimize Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza, the administration will never be satisfied. The White House will never acknowledge that Israel is in the right, or that it is fighting a moral war against a barbaric foe. And since the administration will never be satisfied, Israel can expect to be condemned by various UN bodies, including the Security Council, because no matter what it does to try to earn the support of the administration, it will never receive such support.

The discovery that the Obama administration is entirely in Hamas’s corner hit all of Israel hard. But it hit the Left the hardest. Few on the Right, which recognized Obama’s hostility from the outset of his presidency, were surprised.

As for political leaders, the government cannot risk giving the administration justification for its anti-Israel policies, so senior ministers have all said nothing.

Consequently, the harshest criticisms of the administration’s pro-Hamas position were heard from quarters where rarely a peep of criticism for Obama has been heard.

The Israeli Left went ballistic.


She explains how this has essentially put a killing knife through the heart of the Israeli Left (what little was left of it) and implications of taking this position for the U.S. and the whole region. [She leaves out Abbas’ reaction (as have most of the media): They also went ballistic and claimed that the ceasefire document and details they got from the Obama admin are meant as the equivalent of an assassination attempt of the Palestinian Authority, setting up Hamas to become the ruling kings].

She concludes, as have I, that under the Obama administration the U.S. has switched sides.

    I did the smallest amount of research on Obama when he was running for president and turned up Obama’s very questionable past: His anti-Israel statements, his support for terrorists in the past, his long association with Bill Ayers, his twenty plus years of attending the church of Rev. G-Damn America Wright who Obama called his “mentor” until Wright’s radical statements began to surface, the fantasy of his “autobiography”, and unfortunately much more…yet so many Americans supported him due to the relentless promotion of Obama through the Left-leaning media sources. I wish that people had done their own research, but perhaps they did not realize that most media sources have an agenda, which often does not include the truth or justice.
    Even considering Obama’s past, I am surprised by Obama’s blatant support of US enemies, his ignoring horrifying situations as in Syria where thousands are being killed to condemn Israel’s efforts to defend itself while avoiding civilian harm, and his shameless betrayal of US allies, and frankly his endangering the US and the world.
    I believe that Obama’s legacy will be a dishonorable legacy of betrayal to all that is right and good.

    Exactly, Lynne. This should not come as a surprise, everyone should have known for quite a while. BHO’s agenda has been an extremely ugly one from the first day on.

  3. Rob says :

    Glick called it within a few months of O’s inauguration – even before the infamous speech in Cairo. She said then that Obama had abrogated the security alliance with Israel. I think this was after his first public TV interview – with the Saudi’s al-Arabiya network, no less. Glick is the best ME analyst currently writing, IMHO.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise but it seems to have taken quite a lot of folks by it anyway.. Caroline Glick is definitely the best analyst writing currently. She’s got a book out and she basically argues in it that we should annex the West Bank and just leave Gaza to itself –it can be the Palestinian state if they want one. That’s pretty much where I’m headed in my thinking as well –not there quite yet but pretty close.

  5. Mike says :

    It’s worth reading Khaled Abu Toameh’s take on the matter.

  6. israeliminx says :

    I’m a major fan of Khaled Abu Toameh. He is a journalist with impeccable moral values and objectivity. Khaled was also really helpful some years ago in getting me in touch with the family of the Arab-Israeli taxi driver that was murdered by a crazy person (in this case a certifiable crazy person who had only been recently released from the psych hospital). He is just awesome all around.
