Obama and the Jews

Reader comment on item: Romney vs. Obama vis-à-vis Israel
in response to reader comment: Really?

Submitted by Kepha Hor (United States), Sep 5, 2012 at 18:50

Now for my full disclosure. I firmly believe that the Chosen People of God are gathered around the Messiah Jesus (and have been since roughly 30 A.D.), and not on a piece of Middle Eastern Real Estate.

HOWEVER:

To displace 6 million Israelis (which is what the Ikhwan and Hamas want) would be a humanitarian disaster of the first order;

The Obama administration's failure to explain the First Amendment in the wake of the Terry Jones incident (and I don't support burning the Qur'an) , its wanting religious employers to pay for abortions and birth control, and sympathy for making "hate speech" a criminal offense all show that it has no respect for the First Amendment;

For better or worse, Israel is a US ally;

And, Obama's roots among Communists and Black radicals show all too clearly, and have always been there for anyone who cared to see.

Call me a supercessionist, but I remain pro-Israel, and Obama's apparent willingness to sacrifice this ally bothers me greatly.
