Obama, the Arab League, the KGB and Rodney King

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech

Submitted by K P Price, Ph.D. (United States), Jun 4, 2009 at 17:09

Not surprisingly, President Obama, in an otherwise infantile, pandering, yet insulting speech to his Muslim and Arab audience, made clear that his view of the Arab-Israeli conflict is nearly identical to that of the Arab League in 1947 and the PLO, established in 1965 -prior to the "occupation" - by Yasser Arafat, the Kuwaiti-Egyptian intelligence officer recruited by the KGB to open an unconventional front against Israel.

That is to say that the PLO narrative of the conflict is the correct one, and Israel is the villain of the piece. If, as it appears, the Obama administration's understanding of the situation is that the "Palestinians" are just like American Blacks under Jim Crow, and Israel resembles nothing less than the Apartheid regime of South Africa, it should be our understanding that this Obama administration will become increasingly hostile to Israel and increasingly indifferent to the incessant incitement in PA media and schools for hatred of the Jews, "descendants of pigs and apes," and increased American understanding of Palestinian Arab frustration with Israel and their resorting to violence just like the alleged freedom fighters of the ANC.

It would be easy to dismiss this puerile speech as simply a restating of the words of the famous American political philosopher, Rodney King: "can't we all just get along?" But, the subtext of this speech is that Neville Chamberlain and Tinkerbell are back in town. Ich hob moire. It's going to bad for Israel, bad for the Jews, bad for America and bad for decency in the World. Israel saved the world from Sadam's nukes in 1981 and from Asad's nukes in 2007.

The thanks that it gets? In 2008, the President of the U.S. erroneously, yet deliberately, represents the U.S. as a country with one of the world's largest Muslim populations, encouraging the Muslim Umma to believe that Islam is on the march in the U.S.; representing us as being on the verge of accepting our dhimmitude; and assuring the Arab and Muslim world that the U.S. is on the side of the Arab and Muslim extremists in the Israel-Arab war, and he will do all in his power to pressure Israel to commit State-suicide via Oslo, despite 17 years experience of its easily-predicted failure. The task remains for us Americans who haven't been seduced by the dangerous, millennial, messianic rhetoric emanating from this administration to ensure that Congress foils its agenda.
