For Progressive Jews, most of whom support and finance President Obama, his recent Mideast tour was a relief. Not that they care that much about Israel--in fact, many condoned the President's suicidal conditions he imposed on Israel, while supporting his grating relationship with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu. They even stood by him after his famous open mic rant to then French President Sarkozy that Netanyahu was a bigger pain in his arse than the Frenchie Prez.
Obama's been badgered by his lib Jewish supporters to show some solidarity with the Jewish State. Even the liberal Jews ever-growing evidence that he was pandering to the Jew-hating Muslim Brotherhood, the scoundrels now running Egypt, and his appointment of Chuck Hagel, an anti-Semite, to head up the Defense Department, Israel did something to convince the President that it was in his best interest to change directions.
Jewish Hollywood and business supporters sighed a group breath of relief over the love-fest Obama had with Israeli leaders: Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Perez. The Netanyahu romance was only surpassed by their seemingly mutual hatred in their previous encounters over the last four years.
Besides the sucking up in closed quarters and in public, here's what Israel agreed to:
· Apologize to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan for the killing of 9 mercenaries on ship that broached Israel territory to get to Gaza—plus millions in damages. Heck, even the UN sided with Israel's right to self defense.
· Israeli President Perez presented Barack with the Israeli Medal of Distinction.
· Let Obama blame Israel for all sorts of things they weren't guilty for in front of a crowd of Israeli youts. It was like chickens giving a standing ovation to Colonel Sanders after he told them what was about to happen to them.(Rush)
· Obama released $1/2 billion to the PLO for their compliance to achieve statehood via direct negotiations with Israel. NEWSFLASH! After Obama announced the release, PLO leader Abbas said he would go after statehood without direct negotiations! What a shock.
· Suck up to Obama in such a way as to negate critics like—well--me, to the delight of lefty Jews who can now say, "See? Told you Obama loved Jews—PUTZ!"
· Let Obama stand right under a picture of the father of Islamic terrorism, Yasser Arafat, without criticism.
· Made him an official Jew without the required circumcision.
What Israelis got:
· Obama's proclamation on Israel having the right to self-defense as they alone saw fit.
· The leash around their necks loosened if not entirely released. Now Israel can preemptively attack Iran's nukes when THEY think it's the right time.
Page 2 of 2 - · A recommitment to support Israel past 2017 when the current agreement expires.
· Most important, he pulled back on his demand that Israel return to the indefensible pre 67' borders as a precondition for Palestinians to enter the peace talks.
· Next time Netanyahu comes to the WH he'll be welcomed on the main floor instead of locked in the basement just inside where the WH garbage is collected.
· A comment from Obama telling the world the lie about how delicious plain matzos were.
Another hint the Jews were resurrected was by the end of the visit, the Palestinians were so upset they began firing rockets into Southern Israel while Obama was still in the country!
Credit goes to Israeli psychologists who orchestrated Obama's enabling as a seriously affected narcissist.
Of course, all Obama did was co-opt the Bush position on Israel, but for him that was a radical half turn to the right.
What Israelis must understand is the need to feed the monster his ego fest. If they don't he'll throw them under the bus quicker than he did his white Granny and homeless brother.
If we've learned anything about our President, it's that it's about him and his quest for power.
Progressive Jews: The Matzo-balls are in your bowl!
