Melanie Phillips: Benjamin Netanyahu, the Jew among world leaders

Shocked and appalled by their failure to finish him off politically – only to see him reelected stronger than ever – the Left immediately intensified its campaign of distortion and demonization against him. Its “aha” moment was that he was said to have reversed himself and come out against a two-state solution.

The Obama administration pounced and started hurling threats. It let it be known that, now that Netanyahu had opposed the creation of a separate Palestinian state, it would need to “reevaluate” the best way of bringing that about. It suggested the US might now fail to oppose the Palestinian initiative to get the UN Security Council to declare the establishment of such a state.

    The leftist controlled media in the West take great pains to always point out that the troubles in the middle east are always the fault of the West and of course the Jews. Thomas Walkom in the Saturday Star is part of that elite that goes to extremes. Somehow he explains that the current situation in Syria is the fault of the West and of course those damn Jews in Israel.

    • I must try to stomach that article.

    The west is playing the same game against Israel it did against South Africa. Attack and destroy civilized order and let the barbarians rule so as to prove we’re not racist, only cynical and stupid.

    • It does appear so. Europe is in fear of its Muslims, Israel will be sacrificed to the crocodile.

        I can see them trying that, but the European left is quickly losing it’s moral authority and aura of sophistication. Or I like to think so anyway.

      Yes they WOULD do that just to soothe their guilt.

      The British and the Dutch built South Africa out of nothing and were swamped by africans.
      I bought into that apartheid is bad bullshit when I was in my twenties.
      Then I saw what happened in Rhodesia.
      And I know it’s going to happen in South Africa.
      It ain’t much but now I buy my gas at Shell.

    And what will such a UN resolution accomplish in the end?

      It will gives us another reason to disband this corrupt organization.

    It is a shame that the Mossad has not been deployed to remove Obama from office…

      Obama has become Elmer Fudd, sputtering at Netanyahu, “I’ll get you yet, you cwazy wabbit,” with all of his stratagems blowing up in his face.
