A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Reader comment on item: On Biden in Israel

Submitted by Jerrold L. Sobel (United States), Mar 12, 2010 at 11:26

If any Jew or friend of Israel, irrespective of their political affiliation thinks this President is either a friend or even an honest broker between Israel and the Arab world; I have a bridge in Manhattan I'd like to sell them. Obama, in his short tenure as chief executive has done more to weaken his close "ally" Israel than any other American President since the Jewish State's inception.

As the bellicose Mullahs of Iran are on the verge of going nuclear and possessing a sophisticated delivery system capable of hitting Israel in less than ten minutes; in a classic case of "Rome burned while Nero fiddled," Obama's priorities rest with the Palestinian question and weakening the Jewish State through the defunct land for peace non-process from which Israel has never seen an ounce of reciprocity. This audaciously arrogant man has incessantly delved into the internal affairs of Israel while giving the terrorists in both Fatah and Hamas essentially a free pass. Some may be surprised by this relentless full court press by the President, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, Special Envoy George Mitchell, Admiral Mullen, and now the court jester, Joe Biden, they shouldn't be. If his name alone wasn't a give away, Obama's personal and political relationships before becoming President should be. As if further validity is needed; his methodical plod through the Middle East paying homage to every dictator willing to grant him an audience; the self flagellating Cairo speech; and equating Israel's creation with the Holocaust should further expose who Obama is not only to his detractors but to his supporters as well. The greatest service the Netanyahu government can do for its constituents is to be very wary of the this wolf in sheep clothing and take an independent role in their own affairs.
