Another Jewish Charm Offensive Won’t Fix What Obama Has Broken

After several months of insults (chickensh*!t) and threats about re-evaluating U.S. policy, the Obama administration appears to have awakened to the fact that its feud with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has gone too far. As the New York Times reports today, the White House is making a conscious effort to play down its anger at the Israeli government, primarily by making nice with American Jewish groups. But what is sounding very much like another edition of the Jewish charm offensive that characterized administration statements about Israel during the year preceding President Obama’s reelection is not going to fix what has been broken by President Obama and his foreign-policy team. The problem is an American government that is intent on creating distance between itself and Israel, not misunderstandings rooted in a personality clash between Obama and Netanyahu. Its only purpose is to disarm Jewish groups and to persuade them to stay quiet during the impending debate about the Iran nuclear deal while still threatening Israel with diplomatic isolation over the Middle East peace process.

    “…the White House is making a conscious effort to play down its anger at the Israeli government, primarily by making nice with American Jewish groups”.

    This means that President Obama has to make a conscious effort to play down his Jew-hatred (difficult for him to do).

    • They’ll still buy into it. It’s why I never post anything by Dershowitz.

      He’s critical of Obama now, that didn’t stop him supporting his election – twice. The disapora has very limited credibility, and they’ve earned it.

  • Jim Horne

    Will American Jews follow the lead of French Jews and throw their support behind a president and party that will protect their interests? Or, will they be seduced by the a president and a party that is undermining the historical relationship between the U.S. and Israel?

    “When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.”
    Winston Churchill – House of Commons May 2, 1935

    • Count on them voting for Hillary, they are Liberals.

    • Oh how wise Churchill was, and how badly we need the likes of him today against the new Nazism (Islam). It seems unlikely we’ll be so favored, judging by the large number of simpletons and cowards currently leading us.

      • No one in Canada has fully risen to the challenge, and no one has appeared on the horizon as none are brave enough to ask the really hard questions.

        Much as I criticize the Conservative government they are better than the disaster that awaits should Justin’s advisers be elected.

        The closest leader to Churchill is Netanyahu. His speaking up has already resulted in forcing Obama to put lipstick on the Iranian deal.

  • Obama will be remembered in History as the Nemesis of the West, the Trojan Horse Moslem that infiltrated the heart of Western power, the White House, using borrowed identities and imaginary life stories, and managed to effect the surrender of it all to Iranian and Islamic State savages. We are in a period similar to that preceding the fall of Rome, except that this film is faster paced.

    • His presidency is frightening.

    • Excellent analogy.

      Obama has stated “my Muslim faith”. He has consistently played the Muslim card. He has placed Muslims in high security positions in the government. He had made a fool of himself with asinine outreach to Muslims like his NASA fiasco. He has apologized in Cairo, and removed the study of Islam from homeland security department.

      His most damaging action has been his pro-Muslim meddling in the military war colleges. He is responsible for not allowing the the military to study the Islamic theory of war.

      The number one rule of war is to “know thy enemy”. His refusal to allow open discussion of Islamic war tactics is his personal jihad.

      Has any president ever told the general staff they could not study the enemy? What have we become?

      Obama is a traitor. He should be tried for treason.

    Fuck Obama may he burn in hell.

      Sums up my feelings pretty well.

    Liberalism trumps any other ideology. It is it’s own religion populated by “Born Agains” and we all know how rabid “Born Again” believers are of anything.
