Reports: Obama Mulling Sanctions on Israel

The Obama administration is refusing to discuss reports that emerged early Thursday claiming that the White House is considering imposing sanctions on Israel for continuing construction on Jewish homes in Jerusalem.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf dodged several questions on Thursday when confronted with reports that the administration had held secret internal meetings to discuss taking action against Israel for its ongoing building in East Jerusalem.

The classified meetings were reportedly held several weeks ago and included officials from both the State Department and White House, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, which first reported on the meetings.

    The report could be true! After all:

    — building in East Jeruselem violates Muslim (and Obama’s) racist “Judenrein” (no Jews allowed) policies, of East Jeruselem;
    — Israel is a democracy, and Iran is not — and this is why Obama wants to punish Israel and help out Iran;
    — Iran has, in the past, supported a “fianal solution” for Israeli Jews, and Obama is on board with that.

    And besides, a moajority of American Jews support Obama’s Democrats, so not many votes to lose, right?

    He has now run into the upcoming Israeli elections scheduled for March. Public opinion polls in Israel show most Israelis blaming Obama for strained relations and Obama knows it. Any sanctions before the March elections would likely wipe out the Israeli left in the voting, not that their prospects look good right now. And I doubt if the new Congress will acquiesce in any sanctions, but are likely to push back, with many Democrats feeling the heat.

      “Neusner cautioned that Republicans should not expect any immediate influx of Jewish support.”
      “The issue here is whether the American Jewish community votes on a single issue? The answer is no,” he said. “It takes a lot to move somebody from one party to another party once they have established a political identification.”

      • They remain determinedly Democrat.

    Jews get mad when Muslims blow up buildings. Muslims get mad when Jews build them.
