Israel, R.I.P.

We do not usually venture into foreign affairs because politics is our specialty. However, it is politics that is dictating the beginning of the end of the nation of Israel. Israel has become personna non grata amongst the leftists of the Western World. Since the leftists now control virtually all of the countries in the Western World, Israel is in a world of hurt. It is slowly but surely being squeezed to death from all sides. Israel no longer has a friend anywhere in the world. Yet at the same time support for the nation of Israel in the United States is at the highest level in two decades. Surely the United States government is reflecting this support in its foreign policy. That would ordinarily be true but not in this case.

The current occupant of the white house was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia during his formative years. One really has to have had one's head in the sand to think that this had no effect on President Obama. All the evidence points to the conclusion that Obama has nothing but disdain for Jews in general and Israel in particular. This is especially true of Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel whom Obama has treated like mud clinging to the bottom of his shoe. Obama has gone out of his way to insult Netanyahu as was noted in the British press.

Then there is the no small matter of arms shipments from the United States to Israel. Just before President Bush left office with the approval of Congress, he authorized such a shipment to Israel. These shipments continued after Obama took office because they were already approved. Another shipment to the United States stockpile in Israel and not Israel itself was at first canceled because of "security concerns" at the Israeli port of Ashdod because of the Gaza conflict. It finally arrived in March, 2009 over the the vehement protests of Amnesty International which is these days little more than a shill for the Islamists.

If Israel has received as much as one bullet since then it was done under such secrecy that even Amnesty International could not find out about it since it would have raised the roof if it had. As Amnesty International itself admits:

"The United States was by far the largest supplier of weapons to Israel between 2004 and 2008. The U.S. government is also due to provide $30 billion in military aid to Israel, despite the blatant misuse of weaponry and munitions in Gaza and Lebanon by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). President Obama, according to published reports, has no plans to cut the billions of dollars in military aid promised to Israel under a new 10-year contract agreed in 2007 by the Bush administration. This new contract is a 25 percent increase, compared to the last contract agreed by the previous U.S. administration."

Apparently that was then and this is now. It would appear that Obama has listened to Amnesty International and not the American people. He has apparently decided to unilaterally abrogate that ten year contract with Israel, or at the very least has pushed any deliveries of arms to some undetermined future when there will be no Israel to deliver them to. Thus Obama has definitely left Israel high and dry and twisting slowly in the wind. We are not alone in seeing that this is what he has done. The Foreign Policy in Focus think tank opines that "Israel as we know it, will cease to exist in the foreseeable future."

American Thinker has several articles today on Israel here and here and one that comes right out and says that "We have clearly elected an anti-Semitic president" and
"must now ask whether Barack Obama is signaling to the entire Muslim world that Israel is theirs for the taking, that America will stand aside and twiddle our collective thumbs while Iran and her Muslim neighbors finally get to carry out Holocaust II." Further proof comes from a Reuters article saying that the White House considers the Israeli blockade of Gaza to be unsustainable.

It goes without saying that if Obama forces Israel to stop the blockade of Gaza, the arms will pour into Gaza and Israel will be squeezed between Hamas on the south and Hezbollah on the north, the West Bank on the east and the Mediterranean Sea on the west. Not that it really matters because Egypt has just today seized upon the Gaza flotilla intervention as an excuse to announce that their border with Gaza will remain open indefinitely. You have to be totally naive to think that Egypt would have dared to do that without Obama's permission.

The lesson to Israel is now totally clear because it now has an implacable enemy in the White House who is out to destroy it be any means necessary. But wait you say, Obama can't do that in the face of 63% of the American people being opposed to supporting the Islamists against Israel. The answer clearly is that just about the same percentage were opposed to Obamacare and we all know how that turned out. Obama and his elitist minions do not give a rat's ass what the American people think because he won so just shut up and let him carry out the supposed mandate we gave him and the Democrat party.

The only advice we can give Israel is to somehow try to hang on until January 20, 2013 and hope that the American people wake up and send this Muslim in Christian sheep's clothing packing and elect a pro-Israel president. However, we must caution you that all of the pro-Israel Republicans such as Sarah Palin have been marginalized by the Obama sycophants in the mass media as being dumb as a rock and clearly unfit to be president. You can also bet that any pro-Israel Republican who surfaces will be likewise trashed. Still that hope is the only one left to you.
