Obama Lied to AIPAC

Reader comment on item: On Biden in Israel
in response to reader comment: Commitment to Israel may be a ruse

Submitted by anthony (United States), Mar 16, 2010 at 21:36

It's pretty much like Daniel Pipes said, except that the American Left is still trying to turn U.S. policy away from Israel and toward the Arabs. A large part of Obama's U.S. support comes from Islamists like Farrakhan who have always railed against U.S. support for Israel. By most of us, it was regarded as a joke that Obama appeared before AIPAC trying to convince them that he supported Israeli sovereignty--a ruse that didn't last very long. But I'm naive too. I didn't think the Obama administration would be so naked and bold in selling Israel to the Arabs a la George Mitchell. T

he Left has always occupied academia, too; I can remember the anti-Jewish brainwashing to which I was subjected when I was a student. And as for making a mountain out of molehill, you would almost think that Obama had joined the students at the University of Toronto in his "anger" at Israel as they celebrate IAW (Israeli Apartheid Week). That was another "coincidence?" Probably, but it's stupid. It's very stupid these days in the White House. For Obama, Hillary, et al to create this "mini-intifada" can only mean trouble for America's interests as we are very worried about a nuclear Iran.
