Obama has no such ideals

Reader comment on item: [Symposium on] The U.S. and Israel
in response to reader comment: True common interests

Submitted by Y Brandstetter MD (Israel), Apr 23, 2012 at 01:54

The present POTUS has no respect for any of those principles of individual and communal liberties because he is the product of two intersecting faiths which deny freedom of choice, Islam and Communism. Thus his policies of increasing governmental oversight and intrusion at home, and the sponsorship of Islamist takeover abroad deny those common bonds of liberty and mercy which stretch tenuously across the atlantic

The only reason Obama is not more openly inimical to Israel is that he knows a sudden explosion of oil prices will sink his bid for future flexibility. should he be re-elected I expect he will bring the full weight of the US against Israel, inclusive of but not limited to a set of sanctions in the Iran pattern, a full embargo on US armaments, and an energy blockade off the coast of Israel.
